A Different Type Of Friendly Ghost

I use a friendly ghost to help me promote my websites.

The ghost is called Caspe…….err, no, that’s wrong, try Pat!

That’s right, a ghost called Pat promotes my websites, the ghost called Pat helps a single website earn over $2,000 per month.

Had enough of the riddles? I hope you have because I’m fed up of writing them, let’s get started with the newsletter!

Now, if you haven’t already guessed, the “friendly ghost” I am talking about isn’t a frail little ghost that gets bullied by it’s older, self-confident (and scary) brothers, my ghost is a living breathing human!

She can’t float through walls but she writes some really good articles!

Yes, the ghost I’m referring to is a ghost writer. I use my ghost writer to write me articles on a number of different subjects that I can then add my name to and promote my websites.

Writing articles is a great way of generating traffic. Each article I publish contains a “Bio” box that gives a brief explanation of the author (me!) and a link back to my site. If someone reads one of my articles and likes it, then there is a chance that they will click on the link in the bio box and visit my site, then hopefully, they might buy something from me!

Another great use for articles is improving your search engine rankings. I’m a bit of an SEO geek so I tend to focus on getting traffic through SEO, rather than people clicking on the resource box of my article.

Each site I create usually has a keyword, or key phrase that I target. The idea is to use that keyword or phrase in my article bio box, this is called “anchor text”. For example the link below is a link to my Boomerang List Builder, the anchor text for the link is “Boomerang List Builder”.

Boomerang List Builder

Search engines love anchor text, so the more back links I get to my site with my keyword or phrase in the anchor text, the higher up my site will move in the rankings for the chosen keyword.

Remember that all of this requires hardly any work from me as I use a ghost writer to write the articles. The cost of the articles is more than covered by the revenue generated by the websites they are promoting, and if I’m honest the quality of the articles is much higher than if I were to write them myself!

I’m happy to give you the contact details of my ghost writer if any of you need any articles, eBooks, PLR etc creating. Just use the contact link in the top right of the page and I’ll send you an email with the details.

Thanks for reading and do let me know if you have any questions.


P.S. Did Casper the ghost actually have any evil brothers or did I imagine it!?

    Hi Dan

    Nice post.I was interested in the article writing etc but the link does not wok.Says internal server error.


  3. Dan (el_passo) says:

    Hi Brian,
    Which link were you trying to click on, I’ll look into it.

  4. Hi Dan,

    Very interesting post. I’ve just joined SubmitYourArticle.com and I’m planning to increase my article marketing efforts in a big way. I’m currently using the URL in my bio box. For example, “Tom offers this at his website http://www.tomswebsite.com/“. Do you recommend changing to anchor text?


  5. Dan (el_passo) says:

    Hi Tom,
    I tend to be greedy and use both just incase the article directory doesn’t like my HTML!

    I usually put the anchor text in the middle of the bio, and then a raw link at the end.

    Hi Dan,
    Several people have spoken highly of your blog so I had to come check it out. I’ve just read your 2 most recent posts and I’m so pleased to see so much information that I can learn from. Thank you!

    I’ve got to get back to reading the rest now….

    Cheers Peggy,
    I think I’ve covered just about every subject under the sun at some point 🙂

    Thank you Dan…I appreciate the nice words. But how did you know that I actually do have an evil brother? He gets loose at Halloween and his middle name is Casper…not going to tell you what his 1st name is.

    Paula…I think he just made a lucky guess. I’ve checked my entire apartment and can’t find any cameras or microphones.
