You might be wondering what is really “SEO COPYCAT” , its not just a term i made up to grab your attention, But it actually works.
At no point should competitive SEO analysis be about copying someone else’s SEO tactics or backlinks. Use it for inspiration, new ideas and a better understanding of what Google values and what you can do better.
Copying the SEO’s
Its sneaky but not illegal because you are just using information that’s already freely available to everyone. SEO COPYCAT is just a method of copying what the popular top bloggers are already doing to make their blog a success and earns heaps of cash.
They are many top and reputed bloggers who earn 100’s of Dollars $$$ in money and reveal how they did it on their blogs, but do you really believe they have told you all or revealed all their secrets?
Nope !! yeh that’s right if they did everyone would be making a million dollars!
But fortunately blogs as such have nothing to hide except maybe a bit of secret code or plugin here and there, the main secret of most top bloggers are in their blogs for the world to see. The people who are able to see the real secrets by analysing these famous blogs can be winner’s sooner than the rest and be on their way to financial freedom.
Guest Posting is good
So what i have noticed, after the recent EVIL Google Animal Updates (panda-penguin) is that these bloggers Darrren Rowse –pro blogger and Glen viper chill and many of my favourite bloggers are suddenly getting heaps of guest posts on their blogs , which means possibly two things “ either Google prefers or likes blogs that are updated more regularly or then the blogging scene is getting more competitive with more regular content needed to keep your traffic steady and improving”. ( hint..hint)
Trends in Earning money or making money
The other trend that is growing is that many popular bloggers have now becoming more of a salesman and less of a blogger like on of the blog i follow of chris guthrie for eg , which proves that Selling software and plugins means earnings $$$$ .
There are still many who are true to the blogging game ( giving their audience value) and prefer to blog, but that possibly because they got some back up site or biz making them their money.
Another trend i have noticed recently and so have you is that suddenly everybody is talking about EBOOKS because that is also where the new money is , The smartphone market is booming and so is the tablet market so go ahead and make that ebook that you were planning to make and “make some money”
A classic example of a blog that is doing really good with guest posts and raking in the $$$ with their massive traffic is Daily Blog tips
