CRewriter image

[error]UPDATE:

Unfortunately, CRewriter doesn’t exist anymore. As an alternative, I recommend you check out the free version of SpinChimp.[/error]

While I’m generally not a big fan of article spinning, I still make use of the technique here and there and I’m still going to be testing article marketing and rewriting software. Enter the CRewriter. This is an online application that you can use to make the article spinning process a bit simpler. Best of all, this tool is completely free to use.

Below, you’ll find a video showing the CRewriter in action and some more details about what it does and where you can find it.

Step 3: Read the few paragraphs at the end, where I elaborate on some essential points.

I have read so many posts on the subject of “Content is King” lately, that I feel I need to chime in on this. Now, don’t worry, RQR will never turn into a “blogging about blogging” blog. Stuff like this will remain the exception and I’ll usually leave it to the blogging-bloggers.

We all know that we’re supposed to build links in order to get our pages ranking well in the Google results. But how exactly are we supposed to build those links?

Automatic Submission Bot

Automation software for Internet marketing purposes: It’s all the rage right now, and has been for quite a while. There are numerous offers for programs that will automate all kinds of tasks from distributing articles, videos or bookmarks to completely creating or re-writing content (shudder). Look at a few discussion threads about automation software in a forum and you’ll quickly realize that bots are at the centre of many a heated debate.

In this article, I introduce three concepts that are essential to understanding the use and misuse of automation bots.

Frank Kern's State of the Internet Address

Email marketing, a long-time darling of many Internet marketers, may be coming to an end. And it’s not just me saying that, it’s Frank Kern!

Actually, he didn’t say that at all, but something he said sparked this idea.

Let’s start at the beginning: I just recently watched Kern’s State of the Internet Address. It’s an almost 40-minute long video in which Kern talks about the past year in Internet marketing and makes some predictions as to what he thinks the coming years will have in store for us. It’s a great video and I absolutely recommend you go and watch it. There are some really simple and at the same time profound nuggets of information in this clip.

019 Squidoo2A

Squidoo is a very popular article database. Actually, calling it an article database is a complete understatement. While the underlying principle is similar to that of an article database – you can register, publish your own content and also link back to your websites – Squidoo has a lot more to offer. What mainly sets it apart is that you can add a lot of multimedia and interactive elements to each of your pages (called “lenses” on Squidoo). From images and slideshows to videos, polls and digg-like voting elements, there is a huge selection of fun stuff you can add to each of your lenses.

Since Squidoo even allows affiliate links and encourages it’s users to make money (there’s a revenue sharing model), it’s a great resource for every online marketer or article marketer. I’ve put together a series of instructional videos that go into some detail on how to build a lens, how to add in multimedia elements and how to promote the lens to get more visitors and clicks.

“I’ve set up my site and submitted it to social bookmarking sites. I’ve written articles with links to it and have done all the on-page SEO stuff, but I’m still not getting a lot of traffic and I’m not making any sales. What am I doing wrong?”

You’ll have encountered this type of question a fair amount of times if you frequent any Internet marketing forums. Since I just saw two prime examples of this question today, I decided to make a video addressing what is most commonly the problem in these cases.
