Follow along with our Six month Mentorship and Coaching starting September 2016 as we aim to generate six figures recurring income annually from scratch
One main student Colin, has been asking me for a few years to coach and mentor him to Make Money Online, and I finally relented last week. If you’ve ever tried to get any real one-on-one time with an experienced Online Marketer, you will appreciate how rare this is.
Now although I get a buzz from seeing that light-bulb moment in the student’s eyes, I haven’t actually offered any coaching in the last three years, and I’ve been focusing on my own results and enjoying my time and location freedom.
So not many people are prepared to invest as much as Colin in one-on-one coaching, and it occurred to me that we could help lots of others by allowing them to follow along as we go through the process from scratch, with the aim of achieving a six-figure annual recurring income online.
We are aiming to reach the stage of being able to generate six figures per annum recurring, and will also be covering outsourcing and leverage in order to free up as much personal time as possible.
Your input into the closed facebook group will be invaluable too, as you’ll all be able to bounce ideas and brainstorm with other like-minded individuals.
I created a special gift especially for the Social Media and Marketing Show (SMMS) in Edinburgh last week, and you may still access the free guide here
SEO Workshop Edinburgh
I was asked by a number of attendees at the SMMS (exhibition) when was I going to host another SEO workshop in Scotland?
So I have created a ONE-DAY Video SEO workshop by popular demand, and it come with probably THE most unique GUARANTEE you’ve ever seen… You WILL achieve a FIRST PAGE RANKING within the same day with me!!
Are you still wondering why your static website is not appearing high on the Google page ranking?
Could it be because;
(a) your visitors are not compelled to return frequently as they know the pages are unlikely to change? (b) Google (and real people) like to see activity on your website to confirm that you are still actively in business and actively seeking attention in your niche?
1. Create Your RSS Feed
So if you have a static website, how do you persuade Google at least, that your site is worth revisiting and re-indexing, even without fresh content?
The simple answer is to create RSS feed. With a wordpress-based website, this is a really simple task, and generally just requires you to add this onto the end of your URL; /feed
If you have a traditional HTML or PHP website, then it can be much more of a challenge to generate RSS feed, but I’ve found a FREE ONLINE option, with no tie-ins and no account to create… check this site with your URL; http://www.html2rss.com
2. SUBMIT YOUR RSS FEED
Once you have created your RSS feed, you need to ensure that it is being noticed/pinged, and again this is a free service that really only needs to be done once… however, I DO have a very clever backend system built-in to my wordpress site that multi-pings almost 100 services every time I upload a new blog post… do you think that might make a difference to my site being noticed online?
What Is RSS?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication is immediately generated from the WordPress blog site. The RSS will additionally be upgraded instantly whenever you have actually upgraded with brand-new post. A normal blog site powered by WordPress will have the RSS URL like this: http://www.YourBlog.com/feed. I wager you have also viewed the RSS symbol on a few of the blogs you’ve come across.
How Do You Use RSS?
Now, you recognize your RSS URL, so just how should you use your RSS to profit you? I do get some direct web traffic from RSS to this blog site. However, I love to use RSS as my backlinking strategy. So, let’s dig into the use of RSS as back links and direct traffic.
RSS can permit your viewers not to miss your future articles (the readers need to subscribe to the RSS). Consequently, as a blog proprietor, you will have the ability to immediately inform your devoted visitors that you have added a new article, and they will come back for your articles every single time whenever you have a brand-new blog post upgraded.
You could also mail out to your listing when you have a new blog post up that you think would profit your list, due to the fact that e-mail provides individual touch, as well as enable you to connect better with your list.
2. RSS Backlinks
In addition to this blog site, I run multiple niche websites that generate income, and hence I am constantly involved in SEO link building strategies that will assist me to place my websites on the front page of Google.
You can transform any sort of webpages into RSS feed and after that, submit to the RSS collectors to make sure that you acquire a backlink from those high web page ranking sites.
You may be aware that RSS is normally only offered on your blog post/article, and not web pages as well, and definitely not for static html site.
Q. Can you make use of RSS backlinking to these web pages and fixed html sites? A. Fortunately the answer is … YES!
There are a variety of sites that enable you to transform any kind of web pages into RSS feed;
RSS feeds include what are referred to as “products”. The products are usually connected somehow and contain an usual theme or other similarity.
The following feed http://www.notepage.net/feed.xml includes all SMS as well as paging associated news articles that would likely benefit a person interested in the cordless market.
Each feed consists of:.
title description link The title and description need to be written to explain the material, and the link ought to reference the blog post that contains that real material.
Like html, the xml data makes use of open and also close tags to mark the title, description and web link. Tags are confined in brackets <> like typical html and also the close tag includes an ahead reduce /
RSS File Appearance
The following is just what an item in a xml data appears like:
<title>The Title Goes Here</title> <description>The description goes below</description> <link>http://www.linkgoeshere.com</link>
As I stated earlier, an RSS feeds contains products as well as the tags, and an open and close tag is utilized to distinguish between items.
<item> <title>An additional Title Goes Here</title> <description>Another description goes right here</description> <link>http://www.anotherlinkgoeshere.com</link> </item>
RSS Feed Channel
Now an RSS Feed is a series of items, these products are chained together to produce what is called a “Channel”.
The Channel appears on top of the file and also tells viewers exactly how the items associate with each other. Similar products channels utilize title, description and also link tags to explain its content. The open stations tag <channel> happens just before the initial item and also the close tag </channel> takes place after the last product.
<channel> <title>The Channel Title Goes Here</title> <description>The explanation of how the products belong goes here</description> <link>http://www.directoryoflinksgohere</link>
<item> <title>Another Title Goes Here</title> <description>Another description goes right here</description> <link>http://www.anotherlinkgoeshere.com</link> </item>
When you conserve the file make certain to wait as an xml data.
If you develop the data relying on Dreamweaver or a similar tool, be careful that it does not remove out tags it feels are repetitive. In order to be be an RSS feed, your data needs at bare minimum the tags mentioned above, and your documents will certainly not stand if tags are stripped out.
As my mathematics instructor use to tell us, inspect your work! When your file is ready to upload, enter it into the feed validator at; http:// feedvalidator.org
If you’ve made it this far, and your feed remains in good shape, it is time to “distribute” your content!
Submit your RSS feed (the xml documents you created) to sites much like you would submit a web page.
Several of the more preferred websites that accept RSS data can be found above.
This month alone I achieved more than 500 1st page rankings.
This time, I was actually talking on the subject of membership websites, and my own site at; http://MonthlyIncomeBuilder.com to help others generate their own ever-increasing recurring monthly income (I don’t call it passive anymore).
I mentioned Mobilegeddon, and I was stunned at how few of my attendees knew that this had happened & that it would affect their own search engine rankings with immediate effect.
All new smart phones and internet-connected mobile devices can now download free apps that include QR and barcode readers. The user simply uses the app & points the camera of the mobile device towards the QR code.
A QR code can actually send the user in a number of directions, including automatically making a phone call (eg. call your business to make an appointment), pre-loaded sms, watch a video, skype call, image of PDF, even automatically connect you to the local wifi, with password already encoded within.
Most businesses simply QR codes to point to a simple web-page. This saves the user from having to type in your long URL on their mobile device, and can be especially useful if sending them to individual pages
eg. details of a particular property on a Real Estate Agent website.
Create Your own Unique QR code
If you DO have a mobile-friendly website, why not create your own unique QR code, and add if onto your next run of business cards (I put mine on the reverse of my biz card linking to a special offer), and also on your headed paper, compliment slips, and even your various Social Media cover images.
To create a QR code, just search online & you’ll find there are many free sites, and some can even create cleverly bespoke and uniquely designed QR codes that can change the style, colour and even embed your business logo in there.
However, a word of warning; I’ve tried and tested this many times, and many QR readers struggle to read the images if they are less simple.

Google’s latest update, mobilegeddon will have a Significant Impact
Google have stated that this latest update will have a SIGNIFICANT IMPACT.
This is likely to initially mean that your business website will still be found on desktop searches, but disappear altogether from mobile searches… of course, the whole point here, is that more and more of your potential customers are now using their mobile devices to search for you, and the EXPECT to find you… If your potential customers don’t find you online, chances are they’ll simply go and do business with your biggest competitor!

So firstly; The latest updates are being rolled out in USA only initially, (but Google have indicated that the updates WILL happen worldwide, and they WILL affect every language).
Secondly; The industry experts expect YOUR BUSINESS to be ranked DOWN if you do NOT have a mobile friendly website. This is likely to primarily affect anyone searching for your business on mobile devices, whilst your site may still be ranking well (initially) via desktop searches (be wary of your SEO expert’s proof of results).
Thirdly; Does your business have a mobile app?
Google have indicated that they will firstly check to see if a Google browser has your mobile app already loaded onto their mobile device, and if they have, then your site/app will show up VERY highly on the new search results. This takes the idea of creating mobile apps for your business to another level.
What is a mobile-friendly web page?
If you’ve used any mobile device, and tried to search for a website, you will instantly know the difference between an easy-to-read webpage, that may have a menu option to visit the other pages, and a page that tries to squeeze all the information onto one screen, meaning you have to pinch and stretch various areas in order to see the element that you want to read. Of course, if you also have to fill in some information, this becomes a real pain.
In 2012, I apparently became the largest mobile app creator in UK.
If your business website does not display well on mobile devices, your search engine optimization (SEO) ranking may plummet, and Google even warned of penalties for the worst offenders, according to SearchEngineWatch.
Google announced on its official blog on February 26 2015, that the change“will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results.”
What Website Owners Can Do to resolve Google’s latest mobile search update Mobilegeddon
If you needed a little encouragement to optimize your website and embrace mobile readiness, this is it. To find out how mobile friendly your site is right now, Google offers a free mobile-friendly test. Hopefully, you get the “Awesome! This page is mobile-friendly” result, but there’s only one way to find out. No matter what your grade, make sure to visit Google’s official mobile SEO guide because this tells you exactly what Google wants. It’s like getting a teacher-approved cheat sheet for the big test. The biggest mistakes are slow mobile pages, mobile-only 404 errors, blocked CSS/JavasScript/image files, faulty redirects, cross-links that don’t make sense, and unplayable content to name just a few.
How To Make Your Website Mobile Friendly (at zero cost)
Firstly; I maintain that nothing to do with the internet is difficult, but it IS time consuming!
So whilst you ‘could’ make all of the changes yourself (at zero cost), you may decide to simply invest in an expert to do this for you, in the same way that you wouldn’t try to fix your own car or TV.
Running a WordPress site?
If your site is running a WordPress theme, either it is ALREADY mobile friendly (responsive)….
Or it’s not.
To test if your theme is responsive or not, simply visit What WP Theme Is That and check to see if your site looks exactly the same on a teeny tiny mobile screen as it does on your desktop screen?
Luckily, the fix is very simple:
1. Change your WP Theme. Virtually every WordPress Theme since 2014 is now responsive, and thus will AUTOMATICALLY resize for all mobile devices. Of course the total look of your site may change completely, but then again, you don’t want your site to look the same, as it’s not working properly on mobiles, so now may be as good a time as any to bring your site into the 21st Century.
If you don’t want to upgrade your theme, you can simply add one of many wordpress plugins to make-your-WP-site-mobile-friendly. eg.
WP Touch (If you get an error that this plugin sometimes shows mobile theme on desktop, check out
https://www.wptouch.com/support/knowledgebase/optimizingcaching-plugins-for-mobile-use/ – it has to do with caching).
One thing to keep in mind…
Many free mobile plugins will monetize their work by adding Google Adsense Mobile to their displays. However, you can often insert your Google Adsense Publisher ID instead!
Verify Everything Is Mobile Peachy!
So many things can be done to monetise your mobile and desktop site…. but this article focuses solely upon making your site mobile-friendly.
Thus, let’s go thru the main critical things you MUST ensure have been done:-
Nowadays, most search engines send out crawling bots so submission just isn’t necessary.
You can also try a place like FreeSEOIndexer for mass submissions, and don’t forget to submit your Mobile Sitemap to Google too via Add mobile URL information to a Sitemap. Let’s take a moment now to review where you are now
You’ve made your website mobile-friendly.
You’ve added Google mobile tracking to your website.
