Leveraging Page Rank have several leveraging Tactics, and we will briefly discuss the basics. You can check on the Page rank of a site by using the Google Page Rank Checking Tool. But first read on how to use it effectively;

You need to use the Google Page rank Checker which will allow you to search the Page rank of any website, forum or blog (PRchecker (dot) info) but you must be sure to test the website URL only. That means you only test the URL up to where it ends as .com, .net, .info, .org etc. Some URLs will have additional characters following the original URL like /home.html, /contact.html etc. Never copy these to your Page Rank Checker because you will not get an accurate result.

When you get a URL ranking 0/10, that means the website is already indexed in Google but when you get the big red square with error then that site is not yet indexed in Google.

Once you have established a few Page One sites, you will want to comment as an affiliate marketer but you never include a raw affiliate link in your comment or signature. If you do leave a URL, then you must only share your own website, blog or landing page to your email list. Most high ranking sites will ask for your website URL on the comment submission form, then you do not put your website URL in the comment or post because it may be seen as spam.

And there we have it, one of the simplest ways of getting Google Page One exposure and have your targeted traffic increasing exponentially. When your comments contain crucial information that can provide a proven solution to an obvious problem, you will soon see an increase in sales.

Keywords are the foundation upon which you must build your online empire, when your keyword targeting is wrong then so will be your audience. That is when you end up with thousands of visitors with absolutely no conversion or engagement. Basically that means that the visitors your site is receiving have absolutely no interest in your content. There are so many methods and tactics to obtain targeted visitors it’s overwhelming, and you must avoid information overload. Never try and perfect your dreams in one day, strive for progress and not perfection.

Among the absolute favorite methods used by super successful affiliate marketers, you will find article and eBook publishing. Your Internet Empire will need your own email list if you’re going to actually generate money online. You should also have your own websites and blogs which is your means of getting recognized and build trust. These are the favorite methods used by the professionals, and also the reason for their insane commission earnings.

All of these methods and tactics will require your own original, interesting and relevant content. And that is why you must have your own Google Ad-Sense account because that is the best place to search for your relevant keywords.

In the article signature is the link to the author’s website, which is a great tactic for exposure. The success of all Internet Jobs, regardless of the one you choose is a precise science that favors preparation.

You also want your content exposed to targeted masses, which is why a particular publisher or site’s page-rank is equally important. Google even offers a free tool to determine just that and it’s called PR Checker, you may want to target publishers and sites with a page-rank P.R.1 – P.R.6. Just be sure the site or publisher is at least indexed in Google, because many newbies sometimes publish and comment on sites not even indexed yet. This kind of defeat the purpose of creating all that content in the first place.

Google offers you all the free and paid tools you need to accomplish your goals, and building your Internet Empire is all about tiny objective steps in the right direction.

If you don’t build your dreams, someone else will pay you to build theirs.
