List Building | Making Your Articles Keyword Dense

Rick Burdo Here!

Proud to be an American

 I Say, Thank You

To All Our Veterans.

God Bless USA


 We’ve been discussing driving traffic to your list building page by using articles, and it’s an incredibly important concept. If you do not learn how to drive traffic to your list building or squeeze page, you… will… fail. I guarantee it. So, let’s expand more on using articles to get traffic.

This time, I want to discuss how to make articles “search engine friendly.” This will get your pages to the top of the search engine results pages (SERPs) and increase your list building power.

The first thing you should do is to gather a list of keywords and keyword phrases, which are also referred to as “keywords.” Go to’s search tool and see how many searches were made in the previous month on some of those words. Think about using any of the keywords that have 500 searches or more.

For instance, if you search the term “list building,” at Overture, you might get results like, “email list building, and opt-in list building.” It may be hard to compete with some of the highest-ranked keywords, so you may want to concentrate on keywords that are less searched because there is less competition.

So, let’s say you choose “opt-in list building” for the keyword you want to use so that you can dominate that search space. And let’s say you’re promoting an ebook about list building. OK, then, your title might say: List Building | Free Ebook Helps You to Maximize Your List.

In the body of your article, you’ll tell people how to build their lists by reading this free ebook. Right? Use “opt-in list building” and maybe “free ebook” as many times as you can, without what’s called “keyword stuffing.” You want to keep the flow of your article natural and you want to use the keywords early and often, especially in the title. Just be sure the article flows when you’ve finished it.

In your signature box, you’re going to use your keyword again, like this: Joe Smith is an affiliate marketer, and stands by, “List Building Book Title.” Be sure to pick up this free ebook at (and no, it’s not a real site).

Now, how to you know if your density is too much or too little? Well, the guideline for the whole article, including title and source box is 2 to 5%. Ok, great, right? How can you tell?

There are a couple of free keyword density analyzers online where you can input text and find the information you need. You can search for “keyword density analyzer” and come up with a bunch, but most of them are for pages already online. You want one that analyzes text. Then, plug in the text of your article and the analyzer tells you how high or low your density is.

If you find your density is too low, add keywords where you can without making the article sound funny. Or, edit out some of the text. If you find the density is too high, find ways to say “opt-in list building” in a different form, like plain “list building.” It will be hard to find synonyms for that phrase, but you get my meaning. If your density is too high, get rid of some keywords or write more text.

When you have your keyword density between 2 and 5%, you’re set. Check your spelling and upload your article to a directory. It will soon start driving traffic to your squeeze page and you’ll be list building in no time.

Squeeze Page Secrets: Create a Great Headline

 Rick Burdo Here!

A Proud American

 would like to Say,

Thank You

To All Our Veterans.

God Bless USA.


 Have you spent a lot of time building your squeeze page? What did you take the most time with? The colors and construction? The images that you put on the page? The sales copy? Guess what? None of that stuff matters as much as one other element. What’s that? Your headline!

You can have the greatest looking page in the world. You can have the sexiest images in the world or the best sales copy, and none of that matters. When someone comes to your page, and sees a headline that’s flat, what are the chances they’ll continue to read on? Slim and none. They won’t. You could even put up an awesome headline with nothing but an opt-in box, and people would join your list. Of course, it would have to really satisfy that WIIFM (What’s in it for me?) need, but it could work if your headline was kick-butt incredible.

If you’re not a great copy writer, you can buy software to help you. You fill in some blanks to tell the software what you’re headline should be about and then it cranks out dozens of choices. Pick a few that grab you. If they don’t grab you, they won’t grab anyone else, either. But if you don’t want to use software, hire a copywriter to create some headlines for you and then, choose the one you like best.

You probably won’t come up with the best headline first time around, no matter how much you love it. You need to test these and track them before you’ll find just the right one. Do a split test and keep it up until you see that one headline is working better than the other.

In the traditional A/B split test, you’ll test two pages. Everything on those pages will be identical, except for the headlines. If you want to, you can put the two pages with different headlines into a rotator and advertise just one link. Or, advertise the pages separately. How you do it is up to you. But whichever method you choose, be sure that you can track the results.

Google Analytics is free to use and it’s open to everyone. Just go to and sign up. You’ll need to put a bit of code onto your page, but the directions are pretty simple. If you don’t know how to do this, hire someone to do it for you. Then, you’ll be able to see how many visitors came to your site, and which headline caused them to opt-in, as long as you put the Google code onto your thank you page, after the sign-up, too.

You should probably advertise to at least 500 if not 1,000 visitors before you can decide if a headline is working. After that, you should be able to determine which headline works best. Then, either revise the headline that lost or choose another from the headline creator software and try that. Keep doing this. Repeat the process until you’re satisfied with your opt-in rate.

Remember to size your headline right, too. Some people have very wide monitors and if your headline isn’t sized properly, it will be running all across their screens. Instead, create a table of one row, one column, and put all of your data–the headline, the copy, and the opt-in box–into it, and size it to be 650 to 750 pixels wide. That way the headline will stay where you want it to be… in front of the viewer’s eyeballs.

Headlines can make people wonder, prod them, inspire them, tease them, or make then laugh. It doesn’t matter. You just need to pique their curiosity and get them to opt-in. Make them say to themselves, What comes next? If they do, they’ll probably opt-in to get the rest of the information. Keeping people on the edge is great, and makes for great list building.

Get Your Now!


Many people do have a desire to set up their own online business. Yet the many steps for doing it can seem like a whirlwind. They can make a person uneasy about proceeding. Others may leap in with both feet but they don’t land like they should.

This is because they have fragments of what they need but not enough to be a success. Knowing enough to get started and to be successful are very important. Taking your time to do it right the first time is what you should strive for as well. Don’t be in such a rush that you sabotage your efforts before they can work to your advantage.

Regardless of what type of online business you wish to take part in, there are aspects you do need to cover with it. Identifying what you plan on selling as well as who you will be selling it to are good places to start. There are many different options when it comes to the type of product you will offer.

It can be one you create, an upgraded modification of one you purchased from someone else, or as part of an affiliate program. As soon as you make up your mind you can progress with the steps necessary with making it the best item possible.

Keep in mind that you will have plenty of competition out there. What are you going to offer that gets eyes on yours and not theirs? Who you decide your market is will also affect who you are going to promote it to. Your niche needs to be wide enough that you can make decent sells. However, it also needs to be small enough that you can appeal to the needs they are going to have.

It is going to take time to build up a loyal base of customers and that is where you need to not get discouraged. You should have plenty of ways to be marketing your online business. At the same time you want to build up your opt in list. Don’t waste your time buying one that is offered from someone else.

While we are on that subject, pay close attention to your marketing methods. It is a good idea to have several different ideas in place at once. As you determine what is working well you can keep it and get rid of others that aren’t. All of the materials your customers receive to promote your business should be honest and they should be motivating. Without those two elements you aren’t going to encourage them to buy what you have for sale.

You can spend hours or even days writing quality materials but lose their interest in a matter of seconds if you aren’t careful. The headlines and the opening lines need to grab their attention so that they continue reading from start to finish.

Take your time to read about the trials and the errors others in your line have made. By listening to these experts on the topic you can save yourself from a similar fate. You don’t want to follow in their footsteps in such a regard. While many did fail and then succeed later on, you want to increase your chances of succeeding from the get go.

Don’t worry if you don’t feel that you have the skills to complete such work. There are plenty of competent individuals you can hire to work for you as an ongoing employee. You can also hire freelancers that work for you on a contract basis or a per project basis. This can be done for a low cost while not compromising the level of quality that you need.

As you move along with your online business, keep in mind that there will be shifts in the needs and wants of your niche market. If you are ready for them then your business can continue to grow and change along with them. If you are too afraid of taking the risk though you will end up being a thing of the past.

You should have a vision with your online business of where you are right now and where you are headed. Some very detailed goals that have been broken down into small chunks will help you get there. Take the time to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your business from time to time. This way you can modify those goals that you have outlined.

Nothing can compare to the pride you will have from a successful online business. This can be your opportunity to promote what you are passionate about. The fact that you can make a considerable amount of money in the process only sweetens the deal. With that in mind, take action now to get yourself started and headed in the right direction.

Rick Here!
Happy New Year To All!

tearing out hair and wondering:
“why can’t I get past this frustrating
crap and actually start making money”
… it’s time to step back.
Ask yourself:
What have I done online this year
that’s made me real money?
if it’s a short list, then you need to
think about switching focus.
every major online success story
has a chapter on ListBuilding.
from Microsoft to Barack Obama,
big online successes require big
lists of prospective customers …
oh I know what you’re thinking:
“but Obama wasn’t selling anything”
well if you believe that, talk to one
of the millions of people he sold “hope”
to in small $15-$20 increments all
year long.
and imagine how hard it would have
been to raise those millions without
ListBuilding makes online business
possible, because it’s the ultimate key
to getting traffic on demand.
When you can push a button and send
hundreds, even thousands of people
exactly where you want, then you’ve
graduated to the “un-stuck” crowd.
It’s power like that that let my friend Tellman
go from $50 in a cramped apartment, to
running his own multi million dollar a year
And thankfully for all of us, he’s truly devoted
to showing the little guy how it’s done.
I’ve learned a lot from Tellman, and I’d like
to take this fleeting opportunity to say, on
the record, that I wouldn’t be sending you
this post without the principles he teaches.
you wouldn’t even know who I am.
If you want to learn ListBuilding from the best,
then you need to learn from Tellman, and now
you can do that for just a dollar:
It’s a one dollar trial to his ListBuilding Club.
The Trial Lasts a Whole Month.
It’s a standard “continuity program”
so if you don’t cancel your membership
by the end of the trial, then you’ll be
charged for the next month.
($67 bucks is the regular monthly cost)
I  wanted me to make sure you know
exactly what the deal is before you
even see the next page.
Now that you know how the billing works,
let me tell you why you should:
a) join immediately
b) stay in the club forever:
The ListBuilding Club is more than
just a website, it’s an ongoing education.
What you’ll be DOING inside the club is simple,
you’ll be watching videos that show you step by
step, exactly what to do, (and how) to:
-build a website
-build a list
-and start cashing in.
Each month, there’s new awesome
content added, but since it’s been
running for well over a year now,
you can get all the previous months
content right away.
There’s 107 videos and counting,
and if you pay the buck, and start
going through them, then by the
end of the month, you’ll be completely…
So there it is…
if you’re trying to figure out what you
should be doing, and more importantly,
what you can do for almost no-dough
to start seeing real success…
take the trial, join the club…
…and stick around so you can learn
everything Tellman Knows.
It seriously can’t hurt.
But it CAN be the turning point
in your online career.
He’s got over 500 testimonials from

just another product, it’s an education
turns newbies into marketers.
You can get to them all from the next page:
It’s time to get un-stuck like me…
I’ll see you when you get here.
To Your Outstanding Success,

Your Passions

How To Make Money From Passions

Maverick Money Makers © 1997 – 2008


To make money online many people jump right in before they are properly prepared. You know that to be a rocket scientist, a doctor, a brick layer, a construction worker, an office worker, a teacher there are prerequisites, things you must learn, before you can be successful, you don’t just jump right in unprepared.

The same applies to the Internet marketing industry even though there are unsavory people out there who’d have you believe it’s a “Walk in the Park” and requires no more than the belief that you can just do it.

And I’ll have to admit, it is a walk in the park compared to what you have to put up with in the working world punching a clock being a subordinate to someone who does not have your interests in mind, but there are still rules you have to follow and pitfalls you must avoid to actually make Internet marketing work for you.

Most people will not make a dime online and yet there are others who will make more in one month than most people make in a whole year. Why is that?

My answer begins with the age-old chicken or egg question, “what comes first the chicken or the egg”? Personally I vote for, well never mind, each argument you or I make comes back to the same old conclusion – I have no clue and I don’t think many of us do either.

But one thing I do have a clue about and know for sure is that to make money online you must first have Passion for the company products and/or service of any Internet business from which you expect to make money.

Passion in this sense simply means that you’ve researched and like the company and products or services. It is then that you translate that like (or Passion) into the education, excitement and work that usually accompany Passion.

I will have to say that many online entrepreneurs are so good at what they do that they ignore passion because they can sell anything. But I’m concerned about those of you who are not so knowledgeable at working an online business successfully.

Now, I’m not trying to make anyone believe that Passion is the only thing necessary. Because to be successful you must also have a good website, good marketing, widespread advertising, company support, effective keywords, and etc. Those things are often learned from the company you join – but sidestep Passion and you reduce your chances for success dramatically.

It therefore follows that, if you have no Passion for the company and the products and services provided by that company, again, you won’t attempt to do the work you are being taught.

Internet marketing work is typically not all that difficult or time consuming but it does take motivation caused by Passion to get you off and running with a sustained effort so that you won’t stumble.

You have a great resource in the Internet search engines to search about the Internet Marketing industry for business opportunities, USE IT!

Your research should uncover a company that you like and have confidence in. It should be solid, founded on great principles, and easy to understand with great products and services that are sell-able for which you can have Passion. If you don’t find it move on,
You can find the right opportunity containing the attributes identified above.

Comments like, well, that one sounds good and the compensation plan is excellent so I guess I’ll start that business – does not sound like a decision based on anything near Passion. And remember when you hear that an Internet “guru” does that, don’t be tempted, because as I said earlier they are experienced and can sell just about anything, without being Passionate about the company products and services.

Note: By the way it’s your goal to get to the point where you can sell about anything online. That end skill and goal is a worthy one indeed.

Remember, there are other steps you must make before you step into Internet Marketing but if you don’t first find the right company products and services to be passionate about, all of those other steps may just cause you a lot of frustration instead of bringing you great success.

Not being Passionate about a company and products and services that has market proof that it will sell is a pitfall you simply must avoid.
