It's almost an impossible task to try to get listed number one at the major search engines nowadays. This report illustrates exactly how to get listed number one at the engines for maximum exposure. You'll discover how to save tons of time and money.

I promise you that if you use the killer tips you are about to learn, you'll see a significant INCREASE in your traffic and sales volume. In order so that you don't LOSE thousands of dollars worth in profits, PRINT OUT this article now.

The tactics you are about to learn will make the difference between day and night for your Internet business; print out this article now; you will soon FORGET the sound advice you'll discover.(Or, you can provide this article for your site visitors and ezine readers.)

Back to business: As you well know, if your site isn't listed at the top 10 search engines, regardless of how your site might look, how great your products and seruices are, your site "doesn't exist" if you're not getting the traffic!

Why is it so incredible difficult to get listed at the top search engines? Here's the reason why:

If there exists for any number of highly popular keywords(computer, sports, health, business, etc.) anywhere starting from a minimum of 20 thousand to 100s of thousands of web sites that relate one way or another to them, what do you think happens?

All of those web site owners under any popular keywords want to be listed at the top ten positions at the major search engines. This fierce battle to be listed at the top ten is what makes it almost impossible for countless of web site owners to even get noticed.

If your web site is listed at Yahoo down at 5,671, you're in deep trouble! Who in the Internet world(or in the right mind) is going to bother to search all the way down to your listing at 5,671? No way!

The Alternative

But there's another way to beat the getting listed-at-the major search engine nightmare: Pay for your top website listing by using pay-per-click search engines.

Recent statistics from payperclicksearch- engines.com show that the well-known Goto.com, the king pay-per-click search engine, gets approximately 10 million searches a day! That's about 300 million searches in a month. Boy, that's a lot of searches from only one pay-per-click search engine!

Not only that: Payperclicksearchengines.com website states: "You'll receive more traffic from Goto.com than from all the other pay-per-click engines combined." That's a lot of search power from only one pay-per-click. Can you imagine how much traffic you'd get if you were listed at the top 5 listings at Goto.com!

It gets even better at Goto: Payperclick- searchengines.com also states that in the top 10 listings at Goto your link will appear when someone searches using Dogpile meta search engine.

If you're in the top six, you'll also appear in the Metacrawler searches.

So the bottom line: If you cannot get listed at the top ten major search engines, don't fret; you can use a major pay-per-click search engine, such as Goto.com and pay for a top listing instead of wishing upon a shooting star for a top search engine position for your site!

So, you realize how a major pay-per-click search engine like Goto can solve your getting-listed-at the major search engine blues.

Now, well look how you can use Goto to your advantage for driving mega traffic to your site.

How The Pay-Per-Click Search Engines Work

When you use a pay-per-click search engine, like Goto you agree to pay a certain amount for each visitor who clicks through to your web site. For example, let's suppose the web site in the number one position in search results has bid 8 cents per prospective customer; this means that that advertiser agreed to pay 8 cents for each individual who clicks on their link to take him/her to their site. If position number two and three has bid a little less than 8 cents, that's how much the advertiser is paying for each visitor who clicks on their listing.

This kind of bid for position system will guarantee a high placement for your web site; all you got to do is out bid the site currently in the position you want. This is called "instant positioning." Great, isn't it? (No waiting from two weeks to six months to an entire year to get listed at the major search engines!)

Recommendations

Don't just bid on two or three keywords. Do not just bid on six or twelve. Try to bid on 20, 50, 100, or as many as 500 keywords. This way you might achieve 20, 50, or 100 times more traffic to your site.

In order to submit many keyword bids, use Goto's spreadsheet template which you can download. You fill it out and then return it.

Try to fit your keyword listing into the popular categories, such as travel, sports, computers, etc. You'll get a lot more traffic to your site if your listing appears at the top 3 bids. Why? Because the top listings at the popular categiories will show up on the search engine site's home page.

It's an effective strategy to focus on only one product or service in promoting; don't try to promote an entire category of products.

Do not send your potential customers to a web site that will confuse them; make the web page that you're planning to send them specifically designed for a particular product, service, or program.

Strategies To Boost Your Click Throughs

Bid for a lower not too expensive position for the more popular keywords.

Study and pay careful attention to each popular keyword and the price at which each advertiser is paying for that position.

You don't necessarily have to be first. Some advertisers in order to have first place positions are paying mountains of money and draining their account, sometimes without generating enough sales. You can easily get a decent position, like third or fourth place very cheaply.

Aim to get listed on the first page, whether you're tenth or sixteenth place. Research have shown that listings at the top and bottom of premium pages are far more likely to get clicked on as opposed to the middle.

You must strive to write a good ad copy that jumps out at the potential customer. Your headline will greatly determine how many targeted potential visitors you'll get at your web site. Tell them in your copy what you're promoting and a number of good reasons why they should click on your link to visit your site.

Bid for only keywords that are relevant to your project. Do not waste your limited resources on keywords that will not help sell and promote your products and services. It's a good strategy to bid as many relevant keywords as possible. You will get a lot more potential customers visiting your site. You will be able to get sometimes effective clicks for pennies!

Tracking Your Keywords

You got to track your keywords. You got to know which keywords are getting the most clicks.

As you monitor your keywords, you will be able to better tune your efforts by upgrading the value of your bids, increasing and removing keywords.

You must check your keyword position on a consistent daily basis to be on top. Others will bid for top keyword positions and can drive your keyword position down really fast!

All of this keyword maintenance, keyword brain-storming, and bidding will easily absorb 20 to 30 hours of your time each week!
