    The article on Google Wonder Wheel use has a 404 error – page not available. I’d love to get to read about keywords using the Wonder Wheel. Thanks!

    Thanks again Steve,

    As usual, this is some good information for anyone who wants to succeed on the internet with article marketing.

    As a matter of fact, I would even venture to say that it looks close to impossible to succeed online without doing some form of article marketing. This is because content is the driving force online.

    I was following your tips and guidelines, and was doing okay until Google made a change to Blogger last year and I lost some blogs, including one with over 400 posts. Hope WordPress don’t do anything like that.

    Steve, what is your take on “auto-blogging,” and should it be incorporated into our online marketing strategies?

    Thanks for you leadership!

    @Godfrey: HI Godfrey,

    Blogger was a bit different than WordPress. Presuming you’re hosting a WordPress blog on your own domain, i.e. instead of hosted with them on, you retain control and so your blog won’t be able to be deleted by them.

    In terms of auto-blogging, we obviously provide the ability for blog owners to get content automatically from our members, and it can be very useful to automatically build up quality content on a blog with very little effort for the owner of the blog.

    However, for best effect I would encourage blog owners to add their own value into the blog in terms of their own content, and ensure that any content from ourselves or other auto-blogging facilities is in line with their niche and how they want their blog to be presented.

    The focus should be on providing maximum value to the visitor of the website, rather than attempting to hoodwink search engines for some short term SEO benefit … by doing the former, you’ll have far more value longer term and far more longevity in the search engines, and is a more sensible and valuable business model.

    You’ll then of course have a valuable web property you’ll be able to use to link to other sites you may have and so on.

    For example, for many blogs in our system, the owner incorporates useful articles we send with content from elsewhere and their own content. All helps build a more valuable experience for their visitors … for maximum traffic growth to a blog, you really want visitors to feel it’s worth their while to keep an eye on your new content and to return repeatedly, to possibly link to it from their own blogs, and so on.

    I hope this helps!

  6. Hello, Steve.

    I just wanted to say thanks for this series. I’m a beginner, and your easy to understand articles have helped me a lot, especially the one ones on Long-Tailed Keywords. After reading your series, I think I’m finally beginning to understand the proper use of keywords. Thanks again.

    @Deborah Ainsworth: Thank you Deborah–that is so good to hear! :)

    This is fantastic stuff. Thank you. I was a member of for a long time and stopped a couple of months ago. I’m going to rejoin now. It’s well worth the cost. Cutting that type of marketing expense is short-sighted.

    Here’s a question. Does it work if I link to a page within my website? I’ve noticed that Google Adwords won’t let me link very deep at all within my site. Will a page go up if used as a link if it isn’t the home page?


  9. Steve Shaw says:

    @Ken: Hi Ken,

    Glad you found this useful, and we’d love to welcome you back on board at

    For your question about deep linking–yes, it works to link to a page within your website. Whether it is the home page or an internal page, the page can go up in the rankings when links are built to it.

    Hope that helps!
