Some Advice Needed

by 8 comments
Hi All,

Today I've finally pulled my finger out and have started on the wonderful world of article/bum marketing. I've been reading this forum for a while now, and have been following a lot of the conversations about the topic intently taking mental notes.

I have created a website with a Wordpress blog on it for the purpose of reviewing and selling eBooks. Last night I wrote my first review on a World of Warcraft gold guide, and today I wrote and submitted my first article to eZine Articles. (I figure it will take a few days for that to go through the process.)

I was hoping some of you Warriors could take a look at the site and let me know what you think would improve it. The URL is

I understand that this being my first real effort, it's likely to be somewhat ka-ka, but I'm happy for any criticism that you might have regarding style, content, karma. I also blog about games, so don't worry, I've got a thick skin.

    It looks like you are off to a very good start. Congrats. Good review article. The one thing I noticed is the Adsense ads on your blog. They are not really related to your topic. Now I have seen this in many cases and the ads may be very different for someone viewing in the UK vs. some viewing in the states.

    I am seeing ads such as project X and publishing ads. You may want to take advantage of your blog space where you have your Adsense with some more relevant stuff. Could be other eBooks or related products. Maybe even something that may add value to your niche.

    Your Adsense trouble may be coming from your blog title.

    perhaps instead of
    "Top EBook Reviews" Blog Desc "The Best ebook reviews of the best ebooks"

    You could place the keywords for your ebook in the blog title Example "Warcraft Millionaire Review" Then your blog description could be "Warcraft Millionaire Book Reviews"

    You should change your "About" and give a description of your blog with your keywords in the description.

    Hope this helps,

    Cheers and To Your Success

      Hey Ripsnorta2,

      In addition to Paul's great advice I would add that you could definitely take advantage of more WoW keywords in there. Even though the title of the book is Warcraft Millionaire, I would still use World in the title of your post. Sprinkle in a few WoWs before mentioning gold as well - that should get the Google adsense going more towards your niche. (also, you may want to consider the use of the word grinding a tad bit more in addition to farming, since a lot of the people in this niche will be looking for gold "grinding" guides)

      Well written review - btw - and the design is very clean. I might change one other thing and that would be the category - instead of video games I would use MMORPG Games, and maybe use that keyword a few times in your copy as well.

      Hope that helps!

    Hi, I'm quite new on internet marketing and I decided to start writing lots of articles related with psychology/personal development tips niche (non-published). However, after writing 40-50 articles I started to read a lot of niche sites and I'm a little confused that probably my articles are getting too broad for this niche. Since I didn't target it for a specific mental health pathology I believe that I went too broad and will be very hard to monetize. I would appreciate any suggestions

    Back in my old corporate and sales days, we used to have a lot of conferences, team-building events, and stuff. That was interesting. You meet with your colleagues from all over the world and you talk. So, on one of these events I talk to a guy. He asked me how many clients I had at the moment. I said around 30. He was like, that was great. That was good for you. I wasn't so optimistic. Most of my customers at that moment were small and family-owned companies. That means lots of meeting. Calls. Visits. Orders. It was a logistic nightmare, to be honest. Then he asked me, what is the ratio of the customers I lost and win over a year. I said it's not such a big deal. I lose a customer or two. It happens, but at the same time, I find two or three new ones over the same time period. So, I'm still good. Then he said, now you see why it's great to have small customers. You can never get in trouble. Guess, it was my turn to ask questions. To my huge surprise, he said that he had only one client. Then, he said the name of this client and everything become quite clear. This company had quite a reputation outside its national borders. I was totally honest. I would give all of my clients for this one. This guy in charge of this VIP client told me, I should think twice. If he loses this client, he loses everything. All I could say is that was not a very likely scenario.
