Getting ready for Google’s mobile-friendly update

Google’s mobile-friendly update goes live on April 21st.

Google’s Webmaster Trends Analyst Zineb Ait Bahajji says that this algorithm update will be bigger than Penguin or Panda and will have significant impact on websites that are NOT mobile friendly.

To find out if your site will be affected just enter your website’s URL into Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test and it will let you know if you’ve got a mobile-friendly page on your hands.

If the website you entered passes Google’s test, you will see a green banner indicating the website is mobile-friendly. If the website does not pass, Google will tell you the page is not mobile-friendly and provide a few reasons why.

Mobile-Friendly Test – Google

This test will analyze a URL and report if the page has a mobilefriendly design.

As well The World Wide-Web Consortium (W3C) has their own mobile-friendly test, mobileOK Checker, that provides more technical insight and recommendations for your website. http://validator.w3.org/mobile/

Here is a sample from our site:

Before Mobile Ready:

And After Mobile optimization

Google has laid out many of the common reasons why a website isn’t mobile-friendly – here are a few of them:

  • The content is wider than the screen:  This requires users to scroll side-to-side to read the page.
  • The text too small: This means the user must zoom to read text on the page.
  • The links too close together: On a smartphone, links should be easy to tap with your fingers –this means that the links should be big enough and in natural location to tap.
  • Most smartphone users hold their phone in their right hand and tap links with their thumb.
    The mobile viewport isn’t set:
  • This is a little more on the technical side of things, but the mobile viewport controls the width of the page for the device.
  • If your website displays a desktop landscape when smartphone visitors land on your page, then the viewport is not set for mobile on that page. — a responsive design will automatically adjust the viewport based on the device.

Google lists a few  common mobile-friendly mistakes to avoid as well:

  • Blocked JavaScript, CSS and image files
  • Unplayable content
  • Faulty redirects
  • Mobile-only 404s
  • App download interstitials
  • Slow mobile pages

Don’t wait till April 21st to change your site! Take some steps now and get yourself in shape (well your website anyway lol)

One of the easier ways to make your site mobile friendly is to switch to a responsive WordPress theme. Many of them are ready to go and it is pretty easy to manage the transfer.

In fact that is just what we have done and although there have been a few hiccups it has been probably the easiest solution to developing a mobile friendly website.

The bottom line is the amount of people browsing the web on phones and tablets is huge and only getting bigger so make sure you site looks good to all of them.

Easiest Way Ever To Remove WordPress Page Titles

A lot of my clients use wordpress but don’t want the page titles to appear in every page or post. Especially if you want your wordpress site  to look like a regular website.

So here is the Easiest Way Ever To Remove WordPress Page Titles!

If you look around you will see a lot of tutorials telling you to edit the code of your pages.php or other templates. While this is fine if you are confident you won’t break your site there is an easier way! Go to your ADD PLUGINS section in WordPress and ADD NEW plugin,

Search for HIDE PAGE AND POST TITLES – there are a few others but this one seems to work well.

hidewptitles

Once you find it just install and activate it:

Installing Plugin

Now go to any of your pages and select EDIT

pages to disable

 

You will now see an option on the lower right to HIDE TITLE – just select it and there you go – no more title. 

hidetitle

You will have to select each Page and set the HIDE TITLE option on any existing Page you want the Title hidden.

After that when you create a new Page just select the HIDE TITLE option

Simple and easy!

Welcome to Triple Your Leads free email course!

Welcome to Triple Your Leads free email course!

My name is Phil Eugene and I am the owner of Rapid Response Autoresponder which I started in 2006.

Since then I have helped many Internet marketers understand how to develop and grow their lists. As someone whose business IS email delivery and list building I have seen literally thousands of good – and bad – ways to accomplish it. I believe I can provide you with some useful information that will boost your lists and allow you to build a good relationship with your customers.

Over the next 5 days we will cover the most important things you need to know about list building as well as ways to increase your conversions.

Let’s start right now! We are going to talk about your landing pages now…

env21: Writing Good Copy.

The most important aspect of your landing page is the written word!

Sure a great looking page is nice, good graphics catch attention and nice colors help BUT the fact is your visitors are looking for information. I did a split test once and asked which version of my site visitors liked more and I was surprised to hear most of them said they didn’t really care as long as the information was interesting and useful.

So focus on good content.

lightdoodlemanThe key to that is to put yourself in the visitors shoes. He has a problem he wants solved. So instead of listing all the features of our product list the BENEFITS to the customer and how it will remove their problem.

 

hellodoodleman Be personal – I mean write as if you are talking to a person – use words like you and your liberally.

 

singingdoodlemanBe unique – let the client know what is different about your service or product.

 

restingdoodlemanMake it SIMPLE – people like to quickly get an overview of your service.

 

Provide a knowledge base or FAQ – again keep it short and simple. This allows you to take away any reservations they may have. It will help build trust.
flyingdoodlemanOne of the most important aspects is what is known as a CALL TO ACTION – this means directing your visitor to do something – whether it is signing up for a free ebook or anything else you would like. Just like you signed up for this course. We will talk more about this later but for now it is always a good idea to put your call to action right on the subscribe button. So put “GET YOUR FREE EBOOK”  instead of “subscribe” right on the subscribe button.

Don’t forget testimonials – people love them – they provide social proof that your reliable and worthwhile.

 

So:
List Benefits
Be Personal
Why Are You Unique
Stay Simple
Add a FAQ
Add Testimonials
USE Call to Actions

That’s enough for today – and its a lot really – just taking these steps will boost your sign up rate tremendously.

Take action – make a simple plan for yourself and do it bit by bit. You will see results.

Thanks for reading and I hope you gained something from it.

Tomorrow we will focus on another way to boost your conversions.. stay tuned..

3 Things All Affiliate Marketers Need To Remember

3 Things All Affiliate Marketers Need To Remember

Good marketing practices will bring positive results …

pack-of-emails-pc-display1.Using unique web pages to promote each separate product you are marketing. Do not lump all of it together just to save some money on web hosting. It is best to have a site focusing on each and every product and nothing more.

 

Always include product reviews on the website so visitors will have an initial understanding on what the product can do to those who buys them. Also include testimonials from users who have already tried the product. Be sure that these customers are more than willing to allow you to use their names and photos on the site of the specific product you are marketing.

You can also write articles highlighting the uses of the product and include them on the website as an additional page. Make the pages attractive compelling and include calls to act on the information. Each headline should attract the readers to try and read more, even contact you. Highlight your special points. This will help your readers to learn what the page is about and will want to find out more.

backlinking2. Offer free reports to your readers. If possible position them at the very top side of your page so it they simply cannot be missed. Try to create autoresponder messages that will be mailed to those who input their personal information into your sign up box. According to research, a sale is closed usually on the seventh contact with a prospect.

 

Only two things can possibly happen with the web page alone: a closed sale or the prospect leaving the page and never return again. Capturing thier email address should be the main goal …so providing good content-such as a relevant free ebook-will entice then to sign up to your autoresponder account.

Focus on important points like how your product can make life and things easier and more enjoyable. Include compelling subject lines in the email. Convince those who signed up for your free reports that they will be missing something big if they do not take advantage of your products and services.

mark3. Get the kind of traffic that is targeted to your product. Just think, if the person who visited your website has no interest whatsoever in what you are offering, they will just move on and never come back. Write articles for publication in e-zines and e-reports. Locate publications that are focused on your target customers.

Try to write a minimum of 2 articles per week, with at least 300-600 words in length. By continuously writing and maintaining these articles you can generate as many as 100 targeted readers to your site in a day.

Always remember that only 1 out of 100 people are likely to buy your product or get your services. If you can generate as much as 1,000 targeted hits for your website in a day, that means you can made 10 sales based on the average statistic.

The tactics given above are easy to do. It just requires a little time and an action plan on your part.

Try to use these tips for several affiliate marketing programs. You can end up making a good source of income.
