Ok by now everyone has got their beat down from Google. We have been slapped, humiliated, kicked around but we are not down! Remember, it is our money that gave Google the power in the first place! So what to do if you cannot or you do not want to use Google Adwords? You might look immediately to another ppc model like Yahoo but why not think out of the box? Here are some creative ideas for Google Adwords alternatives.
1st Google Adwords Alternative-Rule Google and Yahoo’s Natural Search Listings!
Grab Google naturale by the cohones and make them list you. Yep, I am not talking about optimizing your page and praying timidly to the Google Gods to list you. No. Make them list you. Have your keyword, content rich, videos, blogs, social media, podcasts, rss feeds, answer sites, twitter and twitteresh services all screaming relevantly to Google to list you. Get Google in a headlock and scream “What’s my name?” in an Aliesque rage. Because your content is real and coming at them from hundreds of authority websites they is gonna have to list you.
Ok you say. “Sounds great but that will take me eons to get all that natural traffic.” Not anymore. I have been having success using a piece of software called ContentBuzz.
This is not some social media spam software. This baby helps you organize all the relevant video and social media sites so that you can easily sign up, confirm your email address and post your media. ContentBuzz is brilliant. It is way better than Traffic Geyser or any other similar type software that I have tried and it is cheaper. Only $29.97 per month with a 7 day free trial. It is under priced as I think ContentBuzz the best piece of marketing software I have every purchased.
Go ahead. I dare you. Type in “Google Adwords Alternative Pay Per View Traffic” in any search engine. I am everywhere. Last time I counted I had 9 of the top first page listing on Google. I have only been using the software for a few days and I have not used every feature.
Contentbuzz will put your videos and media everywhere on the internet without spamming. You will have to fill out some captcha forms, you will have to look at some sites individually. Where there is a one click solution they give it to you. Where there is not they organize the software to make if very easy for you to submit your media. Again, this is whitehat marketing. No spam. Spam will not last anyway. You want real content out there not a bunch of junk. This is long term SEO.
Contentbuzz will significantly help you dominate any niche. I believe an entrepreneurial type could make a small fortune doing SEO for local brick and mortar businesses. They need help and will pay big money for someone who can deliver. With this software you can.
Here is what ContentBuzz allows you to do:

Do not be put off by their somewhat simple amateurish site. They do not have the slick presentation that Traffic Geyser does but they deliver far more. Most really good programmers are lousy web designers. I took a chance on this software knowing this and my instincts were correct. Funky website, killer program.
Get it. Work itl out and dominate your niche without paying the expensive pay per click fees. It works if you do!
I have been having some luck with pay per view traffic. Basically pay per view traffic is spy ware gone legit. Pay per view networks have developed millions of users of free software or internet tools. The network I am working with at Realppvtraffic.com has over 5 million users. These users have agreed (usually many times) to receive keyword targeted advertising in exchange for using the free tools. When they search the internet on any search engine for say “cars.” If your ad has chosen the keyword cars your website will pop up right in front of them. You can target your traffic by keyword and country. It converts surprisingly well. Your full website is shown to the viewer not just an ad. This traffic is also way cheaper! You can get ppv traffic for as little as $.01 per view at my site Realppvtraffic.com. Yes, I own it and I will make money if you purchase traffic from this site. I hope you make money too! This traffic is much less expensive than the 30 cents to $5. per click you can pay with Google Adwords.
The only downside to ppv traffic that I see now is that it is not good for city local advertising. There simply are not enough users in the network in each city to get a significant local presence. But the good news is that it is way easier to dominate the local listings than worldwide listings in Google natural listings (See Adwords Alternative number 1.)
3rd Kick Butt Google Adwords Alternative-Yahoo Search Marketing Australia
Do not forget about those folks down under. They are very good internet buyers. I have tested Yahoo Search Marketing US,UK and Australia for the exact same campaigns and keywords. I was very interested to see that the Australian traffic was cheaper and more importantly converting better than the US or UK traffic. I guess there is less competition in the marketplace. So if you have products and services that you can sell down under do not neglect this market. You even change what you are selling to accomodate the market. Sometimes I do this. We get so involved in trying to sell what we are selling we never think in just selling something else which works better. If Yahoo Search Marketing Australia works better than US or UK then lets find some stuff to sell those buyin’ Aussies!
As an American you have to set up a US account first and then ask permission for the other country accounts. It takes a few days but unlike Google they are pretty good with their communication and will deal with you like a real customer. How nice!
