I keep talking about getting referrals and giving away secrets to doing it, but the bottom line is people still have trouble doing it themselves. So here's the best tip I have, but let's see how many of you get any further than reading about it.
If you really want referrals, you need to have enough confidence to spend a little money and set up a Wordpress blog on a PAID hosting account. Google sees that as a positive and you get better listings. Mine costs me less than $2 a month combined with other websites I run, but even a single domain can be had for less than $5 a month and it adds way more than that to my income over time.
Then work toward getting a top listing on Google for your keyword of choice. I wrote a blog post entitled Fusioncash Referral Secret the other day and then promoted it on a free service to bring backlinks to it. The NEXT MORNING it had top results on Google and started bringing traffic in after I talked about it in another forum.
Use the keyword in your post, talk about it in your content and when you submit it for backlinks, use the same keyword in the title, description and keyword fields.
This may sound complicated, but it only took a few minutes to figure out and it gets easier each time you do it. If you are serious about earning more online, you need to learn to use the tools of the trade.
It's that simple.
