This Will Change The Way You Look At Your Site...

The SEO Coach's Newsletter
Must See Video From Former MSN Search Employee

I hadn't planned to send another newsletter until Thursday night, but this is just too good to pass up.

Andy Edmonds used to work at MSN Search (yeah, that one). Now he's a member of the StomperNet faculty, and he's recorded the most amazing video I have ever seen. Andy's one of those extremely useful academic types who actually understands business.

Anyway, he's developed this incredible software that does this eyeball tracking thing with websites... ah, heck. I can't explain it, words don't do it justice. Just go watch the video. You will never look at your web site the same way again.

This is ground breaking stuff, folks, and Andy's showing it in public for the very first time right now. (Oh yeah, there's some other stuff in the video, like a few "Adwords Ninja Secrets" from yours truly).

Get a pen and some paper and get ready to take notes - a lot of them.

Still reading instead of watching? Why!?

This is a 33 Minute PURE CONTENT video that introduces a totally geeked-out "Cognitive Psychology-Based" web site design method that will dramatically increase the magnitude of your customer interactivity.

(Yeah, that's a lot of big words all strung together - here's what it means:)

The first part of the video is from Andy Edmonds, StomperNet's Chief Experience Officer and a member of the teaching faculty. Among other things, he teaches a technique of web design based on "Foveal and Peripheral Vision" data.

In this video, they actually measure how the human eye and brain interact with your web site design elements. This is pure science backed up by tons of analytical data.

***This stuff isn't being taught - ANYWHERE, not in any eBook, or any other video.

And then they publish the test results.

If you just change ONE element of your web site based on these results, you could see a 12% increase in conversion. Here's a hint: It's your NAV.

--- Then, there are the other 4 parts to this video, each from one of StomperNet's faculty.

--> Leslie Rohde unleashes his white hat technique for structuring Page Rank Distribution by creating separate site navigation for Humans and Spiders. It's called "Follow Your Tail". You would not believe how many huge web sites are already doing this, but Leslie shows you how to find out.

-->Dan Thies (that's me) demonstrates Ninja Ad Words Split Testing techniques that allow you to test huge amounts of creative WITHOUT disturbing your already successful campaigns. If you're running Adwords and you don't know these techniques, it's costing you money... simple as that.

-->Don Crowther introduces the 3 Critical Metrics that you need to analyze to find out EXACTLY where your prospects leave your site and exactly WHAT position your advertising should be in.

-->Jerry West shows how to identify Rank-Destroying Duplicate Content on your site (99% of sites have it) AND exactly what files to drop onto your site to re-capture ALL of your wasted Page Rank, Link Reputation and Link Popularity.

That's just Part 1... Part 2 gets released May 2 - 3 more videos from Sherman Hu, Ed Dale, and Dave Taylor plus another member case study that may shock you...

-->A Multi-Million Dollar business case study from a StomperNet member who currently ships more USPS packages to her customers than any other business in Orlando.

She does so much business that the Postal Service is creating a custom box to ship her material in. She'll let you peek inside and tell you the dead-simple strategies she learned in StomperNet to make it happen.

April 30th SEO Coach Newsletter


The SEO Coach's Newsletter
SEOFS2K7, Creating A Sustainable Business, New Videos Released
April 30, 2007

I spent yesterday at the Renaissance Festival, in my best pirate outfit...

That's my mother in law on the left there - one of the best people you could possibly bring to a party. It was nice to get out and relax, because I have been working a little too much the past few months.

I think you'll be pleased when you hear what I've been up to.

SEO Fast Start 2007 Launches May 3, 2007

OK, OK, I get it!

You all love SEO Fast Start, but the 2004 publication date makes you nervous about following my advice. Everyone has been asking when the new edition will be released.

I've actually been working on it for two years... it just hasn't been finished until today. Besides being incredibly busy working on my pirate outfit, a couple things have held me back.

First of all, the basic strategy of SEOFS still works. That's because the system wasn't designed to exploit flaws in the search engine's algorithms, it's designed to keep working through any kind of changes the industry's players may make.

Second, I didn't want to just tweak a few things for this update, I wanted to make it better than anything else out there. I think I've done that. The step-by-step instructions have been improved and expanded, with flow charts for every step.

There's a whole big philosophy behind it, to make the new system work for beginners, experts, or anyone in between. No matter what your skill level, SEOFS will make you more efficient and effective.

So, why wait until Thursday? Well... there's more to this than just a free book now.

A lot more. I'm committed to spending thousands of dollars every month to bring you the best information I can... and there's one piece to the puzzle that you need to know about.


The SEO Fast Start Community (Don't Worry, It's Free)

Keepingup to date with the latest in SEO can be difficult, to say the least.

Every day, we see thousands of forum and blog posts, news articles, new products, people screaming for attention... raging controversy about the future of the industry, and even the best bloggers can't seem to resist posting pictures of their cats.

When it comes to SEO, the web is full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Somewhere in that raging storm of noise, posturing, friendly backslapping, and self promotion... there is actual information. Something you need to know. Something you could act on. Good luck finding it.

This problem is called the "signal to noise ratio," and I think I've finally solved it.

Last fall, I got so sick of reading junk, that I decided to do act. I hired a programmer to create this great tool. Hundreds of RSS feeds are collected into one source, then ruthlessly edited until only the "signal" remains.

First, we remove anything that's completely off topic. Matt Cutts' cats are cute, but off topic. Then we remove a bunch of stuff that's just not useful, pick the most important items to publish, and add our own editorial descriptions.

In the end, what remains is useful, actionable information.

When you register to download SEO Fast Start this Thursday, you'll get more than just a great ebook. You'll also get:
  • A weekly newsletter, with a feature article on an important part of the SEO process, and links to the latest items from my personal news feed
  • A subscribers-only blog, providing updates on strategies, tactics, and tools for every stage of the SEO process
  • Exclusive access to audio podcasts, teleseminars, and video tips and tutorials to help you every step of the wayDid I mention that this is all free?
Some of you might be asking why I would spend thousands of dollars and countless hours to give you all of this, without asking anything in return. My wife asked the same question, but trust me, I'm not crazy - I just have a bigger picture in mind.


What's In It For Me
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When I release SEO Fast Start on Thursday, it's going to make a lot of people stand up and notice.

Not only are all of you going to get an invitation, but I'll be appearing on Webmaster Radio to discuss the whole thing with Jim Hedger and Dave Davies on "The Alternative," a great show about the cutting edge of search.

With an audience of half a million webmasters and SEM professionals, Webmaster Radio is the perfect platform to get the word out, don't you think?

I fully expect to get over 50,000 subscribers in the first month, because I will be announcing this thing everywhere. Think I can't get that many? Don't underestimate what we can do together.

Remember, I sold thousands of copies for $29.95 when this thing was just an ebook, and I was a nobody working alone... Now we're offering a whole lot more, it's free, and I have a lot of friends in the SEO community (including you) to help me get the word out.

What can 50,000, 100,000, or more of us do together? With all of these people gathered together into a community, we can influence the market in ways that are impossible for an individual.

The bigger it gets, the better it gets for all of us.

I'll be able to get you great deals on all kinds of information, tools, and events. We'll be able to guide the development of leading-edge tools, because that many people demand attention, and respect.

We'll be able to put on our own live events, and get the speakers we want, because they want to get in front of us. When I imagine the possibilities...

Anyway, you still want to know what I get out of it?
  • I will have something to offer from time to time - home study courses on DVD, for example. If you don't need it, don't buy it! For me, the large numbers make it work no matter what. Those who do buy my products will know that they're getting something great.
  • Because we're getting so many people up to speed on the basics, and bringing cutting edge information to everyone, I expect to build a very large community of street smart marketers in a very short time. Your feedback alone will be priceless.
  • I've told you all about Stompernet before - it's the private membership community that took the internet marketing community by storm last fall. Some of you will join us there, when you're ready to take the next step in building an online business.
The cool thing about this, from your perspective, is that you don't have to buy anything.

You can ride this train for free.

On Thursday, May 3, I will tell you how to get started.


Stompernet Corner - Oh, My!

I wish I could have told you about this sooner, but I was out of town at a private seminar last week, when all this got started:

Stompernet is reopening soon, for a short time, and this time, they're offering a trial membership so those who are skeptical (if you are skeptical, you are smart) can get a look inside without making a huge commitment to get in.

I want you all to know that I truly believe in Stompernet. When they invited me to join the faculty, I jumped at the chance. We are building something here that must be seen to be believed. Heck, you might have to see it to even *understand* what it is.

SN founder Andy Jenkins has been a friend for many years. When Stompernet launched last fall, they had hundreds more members than they ever expected. They could have taken that big windfall to the Bahamas, but they didn't. Instead, they invested in faculty, staff, and systems to help these new members succeed.

There's a big secret there, for anyone who missed it - they could have simply taken the money (millions) and delivered what they sold, but they decided to re-invest and over-deliver, and now they have a great business that will last for years to come.

How do I know? Because I work there, and I get to see what's happening every day.
People are becoming successful and financially independent because of what they learn inside of Stompernet.

Anyway... If you missed the "Going Natural" videos they released last fall, you missed some great information. Fortunately, we've had more than six months to work with Stompernet members, and they've got some great stories to share.

In fact, Andy told me that they have collected *hundreds* of success stories, and they're starting to share them. So I had to ask, you know, when can we see them?

He sent me a link to the first one last week - the email simply said:

"Watch this."

Here's a direct link to the video:
http://www.stompernet.net/jvp/aw.aspx?A=84
This video showed how one of our members literally went from ZERO to $15,000 PER MONTH, working only 2 hours a day... and he is not afraid to tell you how he did it.
Kudos to anyone with that kind of "help others on your way up the ladder" abundance-minded mentality. That's what this thing is all about.

The video is free to watch -- you don't even have to opt-in or anything -- click the link below to see it while it's available:
http://www.stompernet.net/jvp/aw.aspx?A=84

Update: that video I mentioned is actually just the first of a series - they have
2 more online now, and the last one nearly brought me to tears, to think that I can have something to do with changing people's lives like that. When you see it, you'll understand why I was so happy to join this team.

My advice is to watch all of these videos, all the way through. You will learn something from every one.
