There has been a lot of people writing about document sharing sites and how they can help you get both traffic and backlinks, I want to describe the document sharing process.
The idea behind this is to make money with PLR and to help you rank and convert some more traffic. The Document sharing model seems to be a great diea but the trouble is that it is new to most people and is not shiny enough to keep your attention…or maybe it does.
I have wanted to use document sharing but even though I knew the concepts I did not have a process. Ideas without a process are big time wasters do I though I would come up with a good process this morning and share it. I think you can get all your first 10 documents to three document sharing sites in about 49 minutes or so with this document sharing process. I have given you the times in brackets that I think it should take.
Document Sharing process for traffic and backlinks
Find Documents – (5 minutes) The first step in your document sharing process is to look though your documents that are PLR text files or articles that fit a certain niche. This could be diet or making money or affiliate stuff or how to lose a guy in 10 days. Whatever you have it is best to have one subject that you are doing this for at a time
Open all Documents – (2 minutes) Open all of your text files in Word or Open Office Writer or whatever you like to save as for yourself. I opened one document from my folder and then added the rest of the documents by selecting them all from the folder and then dragging them up to the toolbar or into the window so that I would get all of them open at once.
Add Links – (5 minutes) Then once all were open I typed in my link text into one document which was just a sentence with two words that I want to target (muscle building in this case) and then I just highlighted the words, right clicked, add hyperlink, and then dropped my review page address into the hyperlink box. I copied and pasted this sentence into the middle of each article once. One important thing to always have is your list of pages that you want to promote (usually your money pages)
Save as document – (2 minutes) Now that I had 10 articles with a hyperlink in theme I then saved them as word documents do they had a .doc extension and saved them in the folder that my text files were in. I thought of creating pdf files but it was another step that I did not feel like dealing with and they are ok as doc
Find Document Sharing Sites – (10 minutes to create accounts and validate) Watch it, this is a part of the document sharing process that can kill a lot of time as you can surf around. SO Don’t . So there are two things to be concerned about in my book; Making sure the site gets lots of traffic and that the backlinks will be do follow otherwise there is too much work for the trouble. I found three sites that seem to be good. Don’t bother surfing around looking for more because it wastes to much time here.
One account is enough. All you need to do is use your Gmail or whatever to create the accounts and then you can upload right away, and in the case of Scribd I was able to link it up to one of my facebook accounts.
Upload documents – (25 minutes) This is the longest part of the document sharing process as you are positioning the documents with titles and tags but in bulk it can be quick. Now that we have documents and accounts it is time to link them together 🙂 With all three of the above accounts I was able to upload, tag, describe, and title all of the documents at once. Once they are up there they are live.
Strategies to remember with Document Sharing Process
One of the things to remember about document sharing is that if you are overly hypey or are pushing a product too hard that you account will be disabled as well as all your documents. The point of document sharing is todrop one link in an article or other short document or report that is going to be something that is interesting to people. Remember that document sharing is not about selling but instead is just giving good info to people, if the link is intriguing then you will get the click to your site anyway to do your selling.
Another thing to remember is that you can leverage your accounts. If you submit these accounts to RSS directories then Google can find your accounts and articles easier and you will get even more backlinks, not part of the document sharing process but something that you can do later when you are in that process.
I hope that this document sharing process will help you out as much as it helped me.
