Some online business owners already know about Backpage.com’s sponsored ad services, but if you are of this group and don’t know about their classified ad services — you’re really missing out. The ads are, overall, downright cheap; you can advertise all across the USA for as little as $40-$50 for an entire week (depending on the category), and the sponsored ads are SEO friendly — pick a longer-term ad option, and you could give your website a temporary boost in search engines to boot.
Not too long ago I found out that somebody stole an article from my website. Now, I’m familiar with the process of getting web hosting companies to remove unauthorized content as it should be a regular practice for freelance writers when clients fail to pay, and subsequently use, content. However, while I have a decent amount of experience in getting stolen content removed from websites, not everybody does.
It didn’t take me long to notice this — somebody posted my How to improve WordPress SEO article on their site. They did, however, give a credit link back to my site — which is odd to me, since they stole the website content.
This has been happening for a long, long time, but Google does use more than just inbound links to discover websites or web pages. The other day I was looking through one of my website’s “recent visitors” logs, and lo-and-behold, I noted a Googlebot hit on a page… a page that was, first of all, dynamic (somefile.htm?do=something), and second of all — not referenced anywhere online.
I decided to do a little bit of a public test, though I wish that I had documented the findings sooner as the site has already risen up on Google’s first page a couple of notches.
Nonetheless, the case study is for a new article writing service that I have put together – 10DollarArticles.com.
