    Default Hello SSWT! Which site to backlink?

    Hello,

    Last time we went on a deployment (I am currently on a Naval vessel out of Japan), I had stocked up on the last 18 weeks of IMTW, and most definately had to check out Lynn's site. Like what I see on the forums and will probably be joining the Members area within the next few months.

    Here is my question. I am helping someone turn their very good content blog into one that is profitable. Now that I am starting to do some SEO for him, what page should we be pointing all the traffic to?
    The opt in page:
    http://motocrosshideout.com/landing.html
    or the blog itself:
    http://motocrosshideout.com
    and have a 'guides' section where they can subscribe

    We are having great results getting opt ins so far (2 cents per click to the landing page), but as far as organic searches go, which one works better in the experiences you have had? Thanks.

    Welcome Christian

    Optimize every page and post on the domain for a specific keyword phrase. That will allow you to go wide in that market and reach people on various topics they're searching for. So you'll want to get inbound links to internal pages, as well as those two main pages.

    Also, add an opt-in box to the sidebar, at the top right of the blog, so that anyone who comes into the blog from a well-ranked post will have the opportunity to subscribe.

    You can also end your posts with the call-to-action to learn more about your offer.

    Welcome to the forums Christian. Thank you for your service, I know being deployed and out to sea is not an easy thing by far. We appreciate you and we're glad to have you here.

    So glad to have you here, Christian! I really appreciate the job you are doing and the toll it takes on a family - thank you.

    I'm excited that you're still getting to work 'the online thing' even when you're out there. That's really cool.

    There's another guy that comes to this forum that was deployed when he started - he might be back home now, though, I think.

    He's a great guy with tons of good stuff to teach - lemme look him up...I'm on his mailing list...back in a sec....

    Ok, here he is: http://nathanhangen.com/blog/ Super cool guy!

    Best of luck to you - that's awesome you're getting good sign ups for that page. My hubby used to really be into all of that!

    Thanks for the link Lisa. I hope to be back home soon as well (couple years).

    I've redesigned the site now, it's still a work in progress (I can program AI better then HTML at this point).

    Right now the homepage http://motocrosshideout.com has links to the blog and forums.

    The blog is a .blogspot and the forums are .freeforums. Is there a way for motocrosshideout.com/forums or /blog to show instead. How have y'all solved this on your sites? Thanks.

    The best thing to do is install a blog & forum on the domain, with your own hosting account. All of this is fairly easy from within your hosting account.

    If you don't have a host yet, most of us use HostGator and you can get the first month for 1c with the coupon code "wordpress".

    Thanks Lynn, the site is on hostgator right now. You mean something like installing a wordpress blog?

    For the forums, I have seen forums that let you buy them a new domain, but not one that lets you add a subdomain to (except the vBulletin that these forums are on). Is that what you mean?
