Tonight’s post will just be a quick update as I need to get back to work!
Solo Ad Update
So, the solo ad that I bought was a bust, well kind of. I got a refund. The seller emailed me back stating that he already promoted my product and that it would not be a good idea to promote it again to his list. Well, you can imagine my thoughts…”???” No one else promotes my product. I just chalked it up to him meaning that he promotes a SIMILAR product and I moved on to the other seller that I had contacted.
I messaged this seller to make sure he didn’t already promote a similar product and he said he did not. We shall see. I purchased 100 clicks. His reviews say that he has good opt-in rates. Again, we shall see. It is set to run between now and the 30th, I may check back and see if I can nail down a date.
The Press Release
I uploaded the press release to PRWeb.com. I sign up for an account and verify my email and phone contact information. I then had to research a couple of settings and whether or not to add a link. There has been a lot of buzz lately about links in press releases being a source of penalties from Google. Apparently, the big G has a disdain for ‘unnatural links’ found in press releases.
I only used one link, and it was a navigational link, like – visit www.stacyfleetwood.com – rather than – awesome blog challenge to make big bucks – as anchor text with a link to my blog. It should not appear as spam or unnatural this way.
