Did you know there is another blogging site out there? I didn’t!  It’s called Weebly and it’s another blogging platform that 30DC recommends setting up a keyword optimized blog on.  They go through how to setup an account and then some of the features on the site, it’s very basic.    Again you’ll need a unique article that is optimized with your main keyword and then you’ll just post it to the blog.   There are no special tips, just add …

Scott Costello All, Blog, Internet Marketing Leave a Comment

Day 11 focused more on article publishing but in a bit of a different way using Squidoo and Hubpages.   On day 10 we uploaded articles to ezinearticles and scribd, which were straight up article hosting sites.  The sites today were about creating fan type pages much like you would in Facebook.  I also categorize them as glorified one page website. In Squidoo you create what is called Squidoo Lenses.  They define a lens as “…one person’s look at something online. …

Google Analytics is the tool of the day and a very important one at that.  On day 7 of the 30 day challenge went over using Google Analytics, creating an ad using Market Samurai and the pretty links plugin.

WordPress was the theme of day 6.  This is the second time where they are using a service/software to help you out.  First it was Market Samurai which I found very helpful and might consider purchasing it when the 45 day trial is up, but we’ll see.
