AMA Competition - Site Crusher 2.0 The $30,000 Giveaway

April 1st, 2011

NOTE: Competition has been extended till the end of the month. Please look out for our email.

*****Please feel free to comment below AND a simple video link is below showing how to quickly add a wordpress site into the network******

It’s that time again…..

Competition Start Date: 1st April 2011 9AM ET(this is not april fools)
Competition Finish Date: 30th April 2011 9AM ET

Absurdly crazy good prizes for very little work.

The last competition was an incredible success, almost 2 years ago and now this should blow it completely out of the water.

Over $30,000 worth of prizes to be given away.

The concept….. Simple.

Add sites into the AMA network to receive unique content automatically for free, increasing their indexed pages and traffic with no work.

Many other site owners from the first competition use these sites as keyword honeypots (finding the search traffic that is trending), keeping old sites running with fresh content or for setting up dropped domains to keep their value.

This is a super easy 3 step process.

Step 1: Sign up for a free AMA account (or log into your current one) - Links below
Step 2: Add Wordpress sites into the network to receive content automatically.
Step 3: Get points for each site you add in to compete for a prize

So lets find out how you can win….

Competition Length: 2 weeks

Point System:

Sites must be a top level domain, sub-domains do not get points.

It must also be a new site into the system (all old sites are tracked in history)

PR0: 1 points
PR1: 2 points
PR2: 8 points
PR3: 16 points
PR4: 30 points
PR5: 50 points
PR6: 80 points
PR7+: 120 points

Unique IP: 10 Points
If the site you add is on a unique IP compared to your other sites, its an additional 10 points

So I bet by now, you want to know what these awesome prizes are.

With over $30,000 worth of prizes, there are some serious kick butt products here that will help you move your business forward.

So how do you win?

Simple.

Head over firstly to http://www.theimalliance.com You will see its our new site on reviewing products that members have actually used before.

It has Massive Authority, almost anything posted starts to rank as soon as its indexed.

You will see there are IM Authors, IM Products & IM Services available. But much of it is empty currently.

Your prize winning ability is directly related to your ability to share your experience with products you have used or authors you have bought from, in order to help your fellow readers.

Only products that you have deemed to be usefull (same with authors) to you, should be considered for writing. This is not a bitch fess site.

Article review quality will be checked and should at least meet the standard currently on the site.

Minimum wording is 600 words, so usually 600 to 1000

There are multiple point earning methods:

#1 - Review a product, service or author that is accepted for site placement. Then write an AMA article also around that product, service or author and submit into the network.

AMA Article submitted must link to the review, and also either to the author belonging to that review, or if the ama article is for an author, the second link should link too one of the authors products in the system.

Anchortext suggestions: product title (or author name) + review

Bonus Tip: Use the Google Keywords Tool, simply place the product name, or authors name and do basic level keyword research. You will have a good range of keywords directly suited for that product.

Points Earned Per Review & AMA Article: 100

BONUS OPPORTUNITIES:

Review Multiplier:
If an author does not exist currently for your product, or a product for that author then you may choose to write an additional review article (you wont initially need an AMA article since the same article links to both review & author & vice versa)

Bonus Points: 80


Ego Multiplier:

Rank either #1 for the product name or author name alone, OR outrank the products/authors real website (may involve you using more AMA articles or additional linking abilities you have)

Bonus Points: 350

AMA Multiplier:

Write another AMA article and submit for the reviews/authors you have already placed up.

Bonus Points: 70

Ranking Multiplier:
Receive #2 to #6 google ranking for a review you have written for the product name + review (example market samurai review) or similar/equal term.

Bonus Points: 60 (site ranks well as it is maybe that extra link or AMA article will get you 60 more points?)

Breadth Multiplier:

Build external promotions to your product/author review and get bonus points (squidoo, other article directories etc, linking back with appropriate terms for review.

Bonus Points: 60

#2 I’m Not A Product Buyer Method:

Maybe you dont want to actually write the review of the product or author?

Write an AMA article to promote one of the other reviews (using stame methods in first point) leverage your mastery over the AMA system by doing just that.

Points: 50

Bonus Activity Modfier:

Review as a user other people’s products if you have used them before and provide a quality user review comment for products & authors you are familiar with.

Points: 20 per unique review comment

So with some smart thinking you could write a review, and an author for that review, write the AMA article, write another AMA article, build some further links from other sources & nab a #2 ranking.

Bringing in a WHOPPING 370 Points

Or you might be better at reviewing what you have used and just getting AMA articles in for them. It’s totally up to you.

Competition will go for 30 days (yes thats right 30 days unrestricted access to AMA)

Check the Google Rankings of Your Hyperlinks

October 26th, 2008

We added a new feature to AMA that will make it much easier for you to check the Google rankings of the hyperlinks that you are promoting via your AMA articles.

When you go to your Articles section, you will notice a new green button called, “Rankings”.

The system takes all the anchor text options that you use to promote a specific hyperlink, and checks the position where the hyperlink is displayed in the Google search results for each anchor text option.

You can track your progress by printing the results and comparing them with the new results every few weeks.

We trust this will make your life a little easier, and add even more value to your AMA subscription.


AMA Site Smackdown Competition - Over $8000 in Prizes

September 25th, 2008

Hey AMA’niens (yes I made that up we are now our own classification),

I have to tell you, the AMA network has been exploding, not just in terms of size, but in terms of results for members…

That’s not why I wanted to chat to you today though, we have put together a “little” competition for members of AMA, and it’s as simple as this, who can add the highest number of sites into the system.

The results of the AMA network are driven by 2 things, it’s size and strength… now we are adding our own sites into the network here as well, but we can’t be including ourselves in the competition that would be cheating :)

Now, it’s my birthday tomorrow, and it happens to be Marcs wifes birthday too, so we were going to have this competition and give away a bunch of PLRPro memberships and AMA memberships and stuff that is fantastic, but it isn’t… real… not like cash is anyway.

So Marc and I kicked around the idea of putting up $3k in cash and prizes for grabs.
Its time to lay down the rules for the AMA Site Smackdown Competition.

Here’s the really cool points.

1. Free & Paid members can compete
2. There are some really cool prizes
3. All you need to do is add your sites into the network to get prizes.

For every site you add into the system you will receive 1 point, if that site is on a unique ip address you will receive 5 points.

The top 10 point winners will win the goodies.

So lets lay down the prizes.

Error Message - CURL error: Operation timed out

August 28th, 2008

If you’re receiving emails with error messages that read, “CURL error: Operation timed out…” despite the fact that AMA has published a post on your blog, then log in to the WordPress admin panel of your blog, and please check the following:

Go to Options/Settings, Writing, and look at the list of ping services in the “Update Services” text box.

If you have a long list of ping services there, then that’s probably the reason why you’re getting the error messages.

Pinging all those services is taking so long that the AMA software times out while waiting for your blog to respond back to say that the post was successfully published.

Please remove some of the ping services until you don’t get the error message. You really only need http://rpc.pingomatic.com/ in the list, and that one alone won’t slow down publishing on your site.

The AMA system cannot wait indefinitely for your blog to respond, otherwise we would never be able to get through all the publishing that the system must do.

If removing the ping services does not solve the issue, then check if any plugins are slowing down the publishing process.


Enabling XML-RPC on a WordPress 2.6 and Later Blog

August 28th, 2008

If your blog runs WordPress 2.6 or later, you must explicitly enable the XML-RPC remote publishing interface, otherwise AMA won’t be able to publish to your site.

Log in to your blog with the admin account, and go to Settings, and then Writing.

Check the box next to “XML-RPC” on the Writing options page, and save the settings.


Emailed Error Messages - More Information

August 26th, 2008

If you are one of the (un)lucky people to have received emails from the AMA system with errors that were detected while publishing articles to your site, then please take note of the following.

If you receive an error message and the article was actually successfully published on your site, the most likely cause was a plugin on your site that either crashed or generated PHP warning messages.

Some plugins run after WordPress has published a post. When we publish to the blog, we expect a well-formed XML document back from WordPress to tell the AMA system that the post was successfully published.

The trouble is, if a plugin (or any other PHP script) generates errors or warnings on your site at that point, those error or warning messages are included in the response we get back from WordPress.

That extra content breaks the XML, and then AMA cannot understand the response we received from your site.

Check the “error_log” of your site for any PHP error or warning messages generated by plugins. If possible, please deactivate those plugins.

You can usually find the “error_log” file in the root (home) folder of your site.

We’ve noticed that the OnlyWire plugin is one of those that crashes the XML-RPC interface on some blogs.
