These days to be successful in internet marketing you need an integrated marketing strategy. This entails websites, autoresponders, product funnelling, webinars, articles, blogging, tweeting etc, etc, etc…
However, people who view follow my progress select the kind of topic they want. They are searching for something interesting. This is true! Most of list builders know perhaps how to write blogs yet it does not seem to be palatable to readers. It does not bite their interest!
A lot of time when people take on too much work and are struggling to keep everything updated they take ideas from other people. There is nothing wrong with getting ideas and inspiration from other blogs as long as all content is original. Blog readers look forward to reading unique posts. If a blogger maintains multiple blogs that are all similar, they still need to make sure each of them has completely original posts. Plus, if one reader follows the multiple blogs and the blogs seem repetitive, the reader will end up choosing to only follow one of the blogs in the future. Readers do not respond well to information that is not original.
Sure, this can be a sound argument depending on an individual and their unique business situation. I don’t believe there is a one-sized fits all publicity approach for every business.
The legitimate ones publish free to re-publish articles from article banks on their site and keep the author info and bio (and links) in place. They also often republish online blogs press releases which are also in the common domain. For these types of sites there is nothing illegal being done. I don’t have problem with these types of sites because they do provide a way for articles such as this to reach a wider audience, a better site is one that takes this information and adds their own comments and reviews. This is providing a real service to their readers by giving their own opinion, not just the regurgitation of others.
The only downside to this approach is the search results don’t tell you the PR of the blog. You have to go into each blog if you’re seeking high PR URLs on which to comment.
Obviously, these legal blogs of poor quality are not highly regarded by other law-related bloggers so there are very few sites out there linking to posts with information of little to no value. The key is to know how to quickly identify which ones to trust to have free legal questions answered and the ones that need to be weeded out and disregarded.
Don’t let anyone try to tell you that the bottom is falling out of web marketing. The awesome growth and popularity of Blogs shows that they could not be more wrong.
