Search Engine Optimization

 

Compared to more traditional domains, gTLDs are cost effective, great for branding and in many cases easy to remember. These are just a few of the advantages that gTLDs have over domains. What are the disadvantages? A myth that has persisted for quite a while the gTLDs are not indexed in search engines the same way more traditional domains are, but Google recently came out saying that this just isn’t true. Whether you’ve go a .com or a .lol, Google will treat them the same when it comes to search results. Unfortunately, this means that your keyworded gTLD won’t necessarily bump your site up in search results. So how do you get an advantage in search engine optimization over those .com websites? Apply traditional SEO skills to your website.

Here are a just a few:

Content

Keywords are probably the biggest factor when it comes to search engine optimization. When someone types a search string into Google, you want your website to come as close to possible to matching that string in your content. How do you do this? With the right content and lots of it. Say your website is promoting your domain portfolio of gTLDs. Try to think of the common questions people have about gTLDs (ones you probably had at one point!) and answer them on your website. Have sections on your website like “What do gTLDs cost” or “How do gTLDs differ from ccTLDs?” answer these questions thoroughly and with keywords like domain and TLD repeating in the content wherever possible and logical. No matter your industry, keep your content relevant to your keywords in your business.

Referrals

Referrals means websites linking to your website. Search engines believe when a website is linked to by other sources, this makes that original site more legitimate and worthy of being high in search results. This can be accomplished by offering guest blog posts to other in return for a link from your website to theirs. It can also be helped by posting your content and social media. These social links to your site help to boost your SEO.

Quality

The quality of the content on your website is very important to SEO. Using the right keywords all over your site is great, but is your site delivering when people visit? Keywords will only get you so far if your site is hard to navigate and doesn’t offer the answers it promises. Make sure your content is well written, spell-checked and necessary to your website and your business.

Mobile

One factor that is relatively new to search engine optimization is the ability for a site to be accessed on mobile device. Many website builders offer the option of creating a mobile friendly site and it’s important that you use it. Not only does this increase yoursearch engine optimization, but it insures you don’t lose customers who try to access your site from a mobile device. Unsure if your site is mobile friendly? Grab your phone and visit your site, if you can fully access your site with ease, you’re good to go. If you’re scrolling and struggling to get to the navigation menu, you’ve got work to do.

While .com and gTLDs are treated the same in search, there are many SEO tactics you can use to ensure your gTLD website keeps bumping up to the top of search results. Consider using a few of these tactics or all of them to get your site found quickly.

Affiliate marketing tips

GDI works best when members work together as a team. The downline setup supports this team structure, but without the right information, teams can easily fall apart. With each new member of your downline you sign up, make sure they are educated and know how to get started with GDI. Here are five affiliate marketing tips and key aspects about GDI that you should share with every downline member.

How to Use Replicated Sites

Replicated Sites let knew members get off the ground running with a ready built web presence, but if new members don’t know these sites exists, they are impossible to leverage. Show your new downline member how they can see their Replicated Sites in the Members Area (Members Area>Replicated Sites) and let them know there are many options including multiple layouts and languages. Have a favorite replicated site? Share it with them .

What Website Building Tools are Available

Once a new member learns about Replicated Sites, they are ready to learn about our other website options. GDI offers WordPress and SiteBuilder plugins to facilitate easy website building or the option to build your own website by using our Drupal CMS option. To use SiteBuilder, new members need to navigate to Members>Build Your Website. For users who want to use the WordPress plugin or our Drupal CMS offering, navigate to Members>Wordpress and More and turn services on and off to access them.

How Referrals and Commissions Work

Referrals and commissions are important to those new GDI members who wish to take part in the income opportunity. First, find out why your new downline member joined–for a website, income opportunity, or both? Explaining that commissions are earned each time a new referral converts to a paying member, but commissions are paid out monthly. You can choose to have your payouts as Paypal or Payza, bank wire, or mailed check. Remember, that the lowest minimum payout limit you can select is $10 USD. Commission totals less than your selected minimum payout amount will be carried over until such time as your balance meets your selected minimum. Referrals are powerful, but they only become income once your new referral becomes a paid GDI member.

How to Get in Contact with You

There can a be learning curve as a new member, so that’s why its important that your new downline members know how to get in contact with you. Tell your downline your preferred email and phone and when it is best to contact you. Remember, downline members can also elect to contact you through the Members Area, so make sure your information is always up to date.

The Learning Bonus

You may have been reading through this list and thought, “Doesn’t the Learning Bonus teach you that?” and you’re right. It does. But the Learning Bonus is no replacement for advice and assistance from experienced affiliates like yourself. When you work to guide your new downline member, they will be educated and work through the bonus faster. The sooner your downline completes their Learning Bonus (and earns themselves $25!) the sooner you are on your are on your way to the $250 Duplication Bonus.
