7 Powerful New Ways To Boost Your Google Presence by Terry Kyle Author/Editor 400 Latest & Greatest Small Business Ideas From Around The World Traffic. It’s seems like all we talk about now on the Web. Hey, so why fight it? Apart from all the usual techniques that you’ve probably heard a hundred times before, here are my latest ‘secret’ discoveries for expanding your business footprint on Google:  Use (free) Amazon discussion forums at the bottom of bestseller pages in your niche area. Discuss a book or current issue in your niche BUT on the bestselling individual books pages only. You can find this near the bottom of the page under the area called “Customer Discussions”. Google seems to love posts in these discussions. Make sure that your Web address and your favourite (Google) keyword search terms are in your post. You need a normal Amazon buyer’s account to participate of course.  Make (free) comments in your niche areas on the MOST VIEWED articles on ezinearticles dot com. Again, most viewed articles in your niche only, add constructive keywords-related comments and you are given a link on your name (no backlink though) but this is a very Google friendly site (Alexa ranking of 319!)  Most press release Web services charge lawyer-like money but www dot prlog dot org and www dot freepressreleases dot co dot uk are free and picked up by Google quickly. Look for my own press releases to see what I mean.  Having a personal blog might be good (I’m still deciding) but aggregating blogs (which all feature your landing page/s URLs and keywords) by automating their transmission across the web on hundreds of sites is much better. Go to www dot feedage dot com and www dot feedraider dot com (free registration to use).  See my other post entitled “Video Marketing Through YouTube” or watch the video at the top of www dot trafficgeyser dot com.  Set up press release and one-article news pages on your own site (must be numbered correctly to be indexed) and submit them to Google News (details at www dot google dot com/support/news_pub/bin/). Like Google Books, Google favors its own areas highly.  If you have a book out, make sure it is submitted to Google Books - a service where they allow readers to look through a percentage of submitted books. If you only have an e-book, you will need an ISBN number but it is worth it. Caveat: Google Books is very slow to process submissions but the SE ranking for these pages is very high (go to books dot google dot com/partner/). Do you have any new Google gems to share? Have a great day and I hope these help your business.
