Alpha Inventions Traffic Disappears

As part of testing the responsiveness to blog updates, we added a specific paragraph to the Stories My Nana Tells blog regarding AlphaInventions; put in their website as a link and “submitted” the blog through their own site to their readers.

On each occasion, we got the message that there was no link to Alpha Inventions on the Stories My Nana Tell blog (which was incorrect) and only nine impressions in seven days have come to the blog from AlphaInventions.com, even though the site “validated” the address of the blog, from a total of four hundred and ten visitors.

Of the four hundred and ninety two visitors to Stories My Nana Tells, (from 7th to 23nd June 2009 – three weeks) only ten have been directed there by AlphaInventions -which is way below the kind of results in the past and nine of those came after the site had been submitted – which is quite the reversal of earlier experience.

So, what has happened there? The change to being a subscriber site seems to have diverted its ‘spiders’ away from other blogs that are not paying to be members.

AlphaInventions: Next Step

Our last posting on 31 March 2009 resulted in 10,129 “views” of this blog in twenty four hours – sourced from Alpha Inventions.

The website http://www.buildyourtraffic.net has been updated to include the AlphaInventions URL – but it is viewed in text mode. 

We do know that AlphaInventions will NOT recognise your submission if the name of your site has been masked by a shortened URL
(eg http://tinyurl.com/cdodel for https://buildyourtraffic.wordpress.com orhttp://tinyurl.com/cdbfht for http://www.buildyourtraffic.net)

A traffic counter has been added to the website – which recognises unique visitors as well as page views along with a traffic viewer – but the page on which they reside is private for the time being.

This post on Alpha Inventions includes a link for the website, where “visitors” from Alpha Inventions can  acknowledge their visit and vote on Alpha Inventions as a traffic engine. We can then compare traffic from Alpha Inventions to two different sites in the same time frame and see which one receives the greater traffic – by way of link clicks.

We will not be submitting the posts directly to Alpha Inventions (http://www.alphainventions.com) because their SE already recognises this site and it should not be necessary to continually resubmit). We do submit to Ping.com each update.

Get The Report 


Previously, 18,000 views in a couple of days certainly proves that writing about Alpha Inventions makes you attractive to their rotations.  The question remains”

When the blog is open in front of the viewer – is there an incentive to click through to see more?

Would you like the results of the market analysis?

over 12,000 views to No Tall Poppies;
5851 views of Build Your Traffic and even
42 view to our sister site, Smart Poppies.

Everyone who views this page (as part of the experiment set up on April 4, 2009) and registers will get the research report as soon as it is published.

AlphaInventions Research Continues

The launch of the new website BuildYourTraffic.netwas submitted through AlphaInventions.com on 30th March 2009 – from Perth Western Australia at about 7:00pm WDST.

Part of the research into the effectiveness of AlphaInventions as a real traffic generator was to see whether their search engines responds to text about their site or to links to their site. While the submission was being made, a red box popped up on screen to confirm that there is no direct link to AlphaInventions.com included on the BuildYourTraffic.net site.

Rather than being an oversight at this initial stage – it is part of the specific market testing of Alpha Inventions.

We like Alpha Inventions and we like the way a community is being built within the site. We just want to know how to get the best and most effective use from Cheru’s invention.

We were also interested to see whether announcing a website that includes a great deal of written content about AlphaInventions sparked its memory and randomly sent any viewers from its reading cycle back to this site.

The views from AlphaInventions to this site during the 18 hour review period: NONE (that is, until the writing of this post)

Compare that to 5256 “views” on 17th March 2009 and 5041 views on 14 March 2009 – when we wrote extensively about setting up the AlphaInventions Experiment.

So there has been no correlation at all in the AlphaInventions search engine between the newly submitted website with extensive content about AI – but no embedded URL. It remains to be seen what this new post will generate – without any further submission to AlphaInventions.  Then we will remove the URL Link to AlphaInventions and manually resubmit the site – to see what response we then get.  We will keep you updated.

Auto Follow Response? ID on LinkedIn

If you have just received a “Tks for following” message from someone new you have started to follow on Twitter – it’s really easy to see if it is an auto follow message or if it really is personal and meant just for you.  You need to be on LinkedIn to use this.

Here is  a (good) trick to accessing the Company Buzz on LinkedIn – now that it is basically a Twitter Search Engine for LinkedIn Users.  You need to go to Applications and “install” Company Buzz on your profile.  It will not appear in your public profile after the update – but don’t worry.

When you want to do a Twitter Search, simply select LinkedIn Applications on your main LinkedIn profile and then click on Company Buzz.

Because you have already installed it on your LinkedIn profile – it will come up, ready for you to do your search.

With the Twitter search facility in Company Buzz on LinkedIn use their name or a link they have posted in their Tweet to you and see if and how many times it comes up in the Twitter search.  If you see the same message – without a single personal note or variation – it’s an auto follow. 

So, then, you can decide whether you really want to follow or re-think about how valuable their tweets are really going to be; about what information they can provide to you, when you access them through Twitter. Or they followed you first and you followed back.  It’s your choice. 

Try this example: the “Txs for following” message that included this link (http://tinyurl.com/6lkw75)came up 100 times without a single variation – all posted 25 at a time, four batches every ten minutes over half an hour (now, in ten, in twenty, in thirty minutes) – not as DM (Direct Messages).

This is not to say that there is no legitimate use for DM auto-responses. It depends entirely on the way those you follow are using Twitter and if you are comfortable with that.  It is your choice.

But, this is a good way to determine whether you are getting the Twitter Tweet you think you are!  By comparison, the Tweets that contained this link  (http://tinyurl.com/d3ad8v )- came up 13 times over six hours, including NINE retweets.

Remember: when you want to do a Twitter Search, simply select LinkedIn Applications on your main LinkedIn profile and then click on Company Buzz.

Because you have already installed it on your LinkedIn profile – it will come up, ready for you to do your search.

If you found this post useful, please retweet. Thanks.

Lesson 3 – Build Your List (Part One)

Setting up an Internet business means that you are going to be interacting with different people, who have different needs and ideas. They arrive at your website or blog from different places and for different reasons.

• sent a link by a friend (referral)
• found you in a community group (network)
• clicked on a link (promotion)
• direct login (sourced)

 By The Way – Do You Know How Easy It is To ReTweet A Message You Have Received To Send It Out To Your Own Twitter Followers?

  • Highlight the message and copy/paste, including the Twitter name of the original sender
  • In the message box (What Are You Doing Now?) type RT @
  • Immediately adjacent to the @ (without a space) paste the copied message and, if you want to edit it to suit your own message to your Twitter followers, do it there, in the message box.
  • When you are satisfied with the message (whether you edit or just copy / paste), and after making sure it comes in under the 140 character limit, post.

Everyone of YOUR Twitter followers will get to read the message and you will have expanded your circle of influence, by doing a favour for a friend.

Be generous with your Retweets – when the message is good.  But, also, be aware of your own Twitter network.  If your network is less than 1,000 and your followers rate very highly on Twitter Grader, it is likely you are sharing many of the same followers, who will have seen the message in their own timeline.  Don’t clog the system – and you will have a good Twitter reputation.
