You might not realize the benefits of having great results on Google, but it has come to my benefit multiple times. One year ago if you Google my name without quotes the results was 90,000, which is not bad, but this month it is the highest it has ever been. It’s at 1.8 million.

All of the techniques that I have been talking about are why I have gained such a dramatic increase in the results.

Every week I spend about one hour requesting new friends on Facebook, one of my latest is Michael Beckwith, (from The Secret). I try to answer messages on my wall within a couple of days, but if not, I catch up on the weekend.

I installed TweetDeck to make it easier to respond to the messages at Twitter. There as an unbelievable number of applications you can add to Twitter to make it easier. Send a message as to what you’re doing, but include your website which counts where Google is concerned. You can also use TweetLater.com to set up your Tweets in the future.

Make sure you have all of your links on each of the social medial sites, because each of the back links will help your results.

Now when I call a producer my Google results are all I need to get booked!

Embedding Video

I’m so excited! I love technology! I just got my Flip Video and capturing short video clips is now going to be a snap. One of the easiest methods of raising your visibility on your blog and website is to add video regularly.

My blog is not even a year old and it’s already in the top 1 ½% of all websites in the world because of the video and audio files that I keep adding to the site.

Again I was listening to a teleseminar that was supposed to be an hour long and 110 minutes into it, they mentioned how they embed video in their websites by loading the video to YouTube or MySpace. Once it’s there and you watch the video, the “embed video code” on your website message appears under the video. Copy the code and open the webpage in WordPad that you want to have the video on. Paste the video code there and that’s all there is to it.

The big bonus about doing the video that way is that when they click on the video to watch it, they won’t leave you website or wait for it to load for three minutes. And just as good, you’re not wasting your storage space on huge video files.

If you use Firefox, there is a free File Transfer program called FireFTP. They make it very easy to transfer your web pages to the Internet easily.
