The Deep Link Engine WordPress plugin was released back in March as part of the launch for a product “Auto Content Cash” by Brian G Johnson, Jared Croslow and Alex Goad.
Well actually you can as you could with the now defunct Feedmagic service that I evangelised 3 years ago as something that would be killed off by Google and the growing popularity of RSS sharing with Google Reader.
It is a significant step, though not as many seem to think unusual.
Afterall, Google started as a search engine, then monetized search, and finally introduced their own publisher program Adsense.
I was honestly wondering when someone would come up with a service like Share-A-Post, because it is one of those “no brainer” ideas that I have thought of doing, but never got around to.
I mentioned I was testing on multiple posts, and that also included the recent Adwords video from Dan Thies of Stompernet.
Here are some important notes
- The headline was chosen to be a little more appealing – it wouldn’t have affected people reading a full feed, or receiving my content by email (even though that was switched off), but it would affect links from social media and other blogs, and also platforms that only show headlines, such as Blogrush, Technorati Favorites, Alltop etc.
I have learnt a huge amount from Ken Evoy over the years, he provides some of the best free ebooks to learn about affiliate marketing and pre-selling ever written.
His SiteBuildIt system has created many successful online businesses and was doing this long before WordPress became popular.
Andy Beal today kicked off his Blog Marketing Tips For Probloggers series with an interesting look at post titles.
What Andy suggests is that you write a title to captivate or grab your readers attention, and then using the SEO Title Tag plugin, (though All in One SEO Plugin or Headspace 2 would equally work) optimize the titles further for best SEO results.
How would a human differentiate between the original source for a piece of content on the web, and a syndicated or splogged copy?
One of the most important factors would almost certainly be the comments.
