How to overcome duplicate content problem

Duplicate content is an issue for website owners because it affects their ranking in Google.com. Duplicated content decreases a website’s relevancy value in the eyes of the search engines, therefore its ranking suffers as a result. Sometimes, it’s not that they want to use duplicate content but they are unaware that similar content is already out there on the internet.

Search engines like Google disapproves of duplicated content. Your website can be ignored or even be banned. That is why it is best for you to remove duplicate content as early as possible to avoid hassles in your website’s ranking.

Keep in mind that because there are millions of sites that can be found on the Internet, users usually don’t like seeing duplicate contents, be it unintentional or intentional. It affects your website’s credibility and authority in the eyes of the users.

The first strategy to remove duplicate content is to create unique articles. In this way your website can be promoted to other article based websites as well. Keep in mind that you don’t always need to write the unique articles yourself. You can hire research content writers to do it for you.

Just make sure that their main job is to create unique articles. The articles they write should not be similar to other articles on the internet and point out the keywords that you want to be optimized as well.

Search engines like Google have “spiders” that crawl the web regularly and they normally discount content that have similarities. Although there is no such thing as a duplicate penalty for Google, it is still a good idea to remove duplicate content especially if it is detected on your site.

Remember that your site’s content should have relevant information. Create unique articles that contain information that are high in standard and relevant to the masses to ensure that it is viewed favorably by the search engines.

Do not forget that Google can consider you a spammer or having a malicious intent if too many duplicated content appears on your site so be vigilant about what you publish.

To make it easier for you, there are tools available to help you remove duplicate content. These tools will indicate that you have a similar content to other websites especially in articles, page titles, URL’s and other elements that can be detected.

It will also help measure the keyword density and similar texts in your content. Although it will cost you more, it is a worthwhile investment since you are trying to optimize your site including its contents.

Always review your site’s content and check if search engine spiders will definitely accept and rank your content. You can use the robot.txt file to help you detect any issues.

Detect the issues as early as possible and remove duplicate content at once. This should be done without hesitation since it will compromise your rank in the search engines.

Always be updated since search engines like Google are always on the lookout for duplicate contents.

The Easiest Method To Include An Up-sell

Amazon does it, EBAY does it, so why can’t you?

After all, up-selling is a technique employed by leading e-commerce sites to boost their sales and though you may be some light years away from them, this could be used by you effectively too. And though this is a technique, there is not a lot different from up-selling and selling by themselves!

There are many ways you could up-sell a product, but before we get into knowing the easiest method, know that an up-sell is a product you wish to sell immediately after he has bought the first one. Needless to say, the second product or the product to be up-sold has to be related to the first product bought by the customer.

To the point – The easiest method to up-sell is to work on the ‘checkout’ page!

What you can do with the Checkout Page?

I’m not asking you to redesign the entire webpage. Follow this process to uncover the easiest method to up-sell.

First, identify your webpage which you want to include the upsell. It could be your product page, salesletter page, your newsletter subscription page, your thank you page and so on.
 
Then just add an option for them to include MORE products before they ‘checkout’.

So if it’s a newsletter subscription page, ask them if they want to include a free trial offer to your other paid product before they click “Register” on your newsletter page.

If your page is a salesletter webpage, give them an option to include another of your product before they click the “Order Now” button.

Here’s another example – if your webpage is a shopping cart, you can always ‘upsell’ your prospects for them to add more quantity of the product that they’re buying.

The list goes on.

Here are some things you would like to watch out for while up-selling:

==>  The product you up-sell needs to be somewhat related to the product the customer bought. The closer the correlation, the better it is for you because you’ll get more sales.

==>  Write your up-selling ad as carefully and diligently as you would have designed your sales ad. Just the fact that the customer bought one product from you doesn’t mean he is sure to buy another!

==>  Up-sell but don’t push – Pushing is bad for any form of selling and the same applies in up-selling too. Inform the
customer about your product and leave the choice to him. Also, bear in mind that you’re adding more value to your customer by offering greater solutions to them in your upsell products.

The method to up-sell your product is not as tough as you would have thought it to be. Basically, if you’re not integrating any upsell in your sales funnel, you’re literally losing money.

It’ll cost you more time, effort and money to acquire a new customer compare to selling to an existing customer who already trust you and like your product.

Although the technicalities surrounding the deal make it a slightly tough nut to crack, but I can tell you that it’s worth your time to explore this powerful marketing strategy.

McAfee Total Protection 2009 Released

When I purchase the Dell laptop, it came with 15 months McAfee SecurityCenter. It’s going to expire on 24th Jan 2009.

I received an email from my friend says that McAfee is doing a promotion for up to 50% discount. Hack, this is a great deal that must grab it.

Note: The software activation date is start from your purchase date.

I communicate with the McAfee sales support regarding my current version McAfee still left 1 month to be expired. So they made a special arrangement to extend my new purchase to extra month.

I upgraded to Total Protection 2009 because it’s more features and advanced.

Here’s the different:

SecurityCenter: 7 in 1 features
Total Protection 2009: 12 in 1 features.

For now, Total Protection 2009 offer 3 users license and 1 year subscription for only $40. (Normal price: $80)

Hey, if you’re existing McAfee customer, don’t login to your account to purchase because you will only get $10 discount. Luckily I knew this special link from my friend to access the 50% discount.

Click here to access the 50% discount for McAfee product (special link may expire anytime)

If you have existing version that haven’t expire, make sure you contact the sales support to let them know first before you purchase so they will extend your license.

Why use McAfee?

You can’t afford your important information to hack by the hacker on the internet. Especially you’re using your computer to access your bank account, Paypal, 2Checkout or online shopping.

Hacker can easily steal your credit card information if your computer is not protected.

There are many viruses and trojan nowadays, so you must protect your computer before they affected.

Create Your Own Product eCover

I just launched a new product called “eCover MAX Action Scripts” that use to create your own professional ecover with Photoshop. Visit at: http://mysoftwaredepot.com/ecovermax/

If you have Adobe Photoshop software, this is a good news for you. You can now create your own digital product ecover without hire graphic designer anymore. Plus, you can open your service to design ecover for your clients. This is a great opportunity that you can earn extra income.

eCover MAX Action Scripts

If you’re not familiar with eCover design, it’s very easy to use the Action Script. You don’t need to manually create the box or resize the box. Just put in your own design into the layer and then click ‘play’ button and your ecover box is done.

This is exactly how the ecover action script works. Some people may thought that only graphic design will know how to design the ecover because it’s require the knowledge and expertise to resize the box. That’s not true, they just design the graphic and use the same action scripts to generate the ecover box.

Does the Action Script very expensive?

If you buy from other place, it might cost you more than $90 or above. Some may charge you for each action script. I’m not going to do that – I include them into a package that sell for just an affordable price that you’re going to be surprised.
