Monday Tip – A Simple End Of Month Routine That Will Increase Your Income.

I occasionally like to dig deep into this blog and read posts I made several years ago, It’s a good way to make sure I stay true to my core beliefs and don’t become like many other marketers. It also sometimes highlight things I used to do that due to a variety of circumstances i’ve stopped doing, often theses are good ideas and worth doing.

Below is part of a blog post I wrote in August 2006, I doubt that anyone reading this today has ever seen it so no apologies  for  this bit of grave digging.

I actually stopped doing this a few years ago , mainly because I started using Paul Forcey’s Rank Tracker Plugin, if you don’t have it check it out it will make you money if you use it properly. Also that link includes a $7 discount only applicable to readers of this blog, valid for the next week only.  It’s without a doubt the most valuable plugin I use. See The end of the post for more details.

But I think that was a bad idea to stop using this method as combined with the Plugin it is an awesome combination even used on it’s own it’s a very useful way to focus your attention on  sites that need a boost. I just spend 5 minutes scanning the bandwidth chart for last month and i now have 3 sites I can focus on this month.

Here is part of the post I hope you find it useful.

Do you have an end of month routine for your sites?? About 3 months ago I worked out a little routine that I believe has increased my income by a minimum 10-20%. Towards the end of each month I check the bandwidth used and the number of visitors for each site. I then select the worse performing sites and check them. Sometimes you’ll find a problem that you have overlooked at other times the problem will just be down to lack of links.

So far every site I’ve worked on has improved the following month sometimes significantly. The 3 or 4 hours I spend on these sites is worth far more than spending 4 hours building more sites.

 

Give it a go this month I guarantee it will increase your income!

 

Don’t for get you can get $7 off Rank Tracker for the next 7 days by using the one of the links on this post!

Here is a demonstration of the power of Rank Tracker, below is a  report from the plugin that was emailed to me today for my Video Creation Mastery site.

These figures tell me,  The keyword used to find my site in google,  The number of times it was used , and the rank. So The keyword  ” Video marketing Creation has been used 137 times to find my site, and it’s ranking in 8th place in google for that keyword.  The plugin has given me a new keyword i would never have thought of and told me where I currently rank Perfect!

video marketing creation 137/  8

video creation mastery      92/   1

video marketing                  76/    3

video creation                       6/     15

Excellent info per usual, Mark.

Kind of off topic, but do you do the Podcasts anymore? I listened to three of them and just loved them. Thanks.

I’ve got to agree with Mark about the value of the Rank Tracker plugin. At the end of each month I take all the words and phrases for each site that rank tracker has told me about. Then I write a post and include those words and phrases. Simple but effective!

This is very good Mark. My Market Samurai chokes every time I run rank checker, still the best in my books, but it has became very very slow.

I’ll check out Rank Tracker

Cheers

Just wanted to remind everyone that this offer on Marks Blog ends soon, so if you are on the wall about buying my super wonderful plugin (ok I am biased) get off the wall and buy it now..pretty please

Interesting what Colm says – a blog post with all the terms Rank Tracker suggests. I’ve always thought in terms of single posts/articles on the individual terms. For sheer devilment, I’m going to do both: single posts on the terms; and a combined post on many terms. Starting in a minute or two from right now. Thanks for the Heads Up!

I have been searching for something like this for ages. I used to have Seo Rank Reporter plugin but it somehow stopped working. And this one is even much better. I will check it out. Just hope that it’s final price that includes the option to install it on all my sites.

Thanks. I bought it and installed on a couple of sites. And I love it! I very rarely buy WordPress plugins, but this one is a real gem! Once again thanks for this tip.

I just wanted to add that I installed Rank Tracker on one site and found a page (well in fact more than one) that has nice position on Google and gets traffic I didn’t know about. So far great, but when I checked the page I found that the link there isn’t working anymore. I fixed it and since then I already got several conversions. I don’t want event think about how many conversions I lost …
