Qondio Success Guide
Welcome! Qondio is a powerful resource you can use to enhance your chances of success. However, you've got to
understand how it works, otherwise it won't work. Think of it as driving a car: an automobile is a powerful machine
that can take you far, but you must go to a driving school to learn how to use it.
Set your account up by (1) validating your email address, (2) adding a photograph of yourself, and (3) writing a unique,
detailed and fact-rich introduction. The longer and more
detailed the introduction is, the better your profile will perform in the search engine results.
Your profile page .qondio.com is like a website in its own right. Your intel pages are served
from this subdomain, your websites are linked to from here, and the better your profile page performs, the more you will gain
from on Qondio.
Add your websites to Qondio. That's the main reason why most people are
here - they have websites to promote. If you have important inner pages, add them as
deep links. You'll have to authenticate each website or page you add. Do it now and get it over with.
Lastly, add at least a few dozen signatures.
Social networking may seem like a waste of time. And it is. But on Qondio, you can network with other Internet entrepreneurs.
It's not a waste of time because building relationships encourages you to come back and work harder.
Being part of a community is tremendously
There are some users who come to Qondio, enthralled by our pro-business features, but who eschew networking. Perhaps they consider it
frivolous. For a few weeks, the best of them generate a mad flurry of
activity. Then they run out of steam, and we never see them again. Those users who have stayed and continued to benefit from Qondio
are those who took the time to build a gaggle of followers. They look forward to engaging Qondio, because it's fun. They are
far more productive, and far more successful.
Find good people to follow by searching on our front page, browsing through the archive,
Qascade, or by randomly surfing
around. Some people will follow you, but you don't need to follow them back unless you are genuinely interested in their work.
As a rule of thumb, follow at least 50 people.
If you find an intel you like, be sure to leave a comment. That increases exposure for your profile page, and potentially builds a
relationship. Also network using Shares (more about that further down this guide).
Writing intel - completely unique, high-quality articles - is the quickest and surest way to gain the Reward Points you need for
adding front-page signatures and
Start off by screening incoming intel, so you know what your intel will go through before they are published.
Low-quality intel is de-indexed and doesn't feature well in our directory. High-quality intel on Qondio can outperform just about
any other site on the web, including (sometimes) Wikipedia. Here are some tips to write awesome intel that will
perform well both on Qondio and in the search engines, and bring you visitors, exposure, and revenue.
- Format well Line breaks between paragraphs are crucial. Use bold text and sub-headings as necessary.
Check out top intel to see what formatting works well.
- Add photos If relevant, add photos. You can add up to 25.
- Be entertaining A fluid, easily followed narrative works best.
You can write about anything you want. You SHOULD write about anything you want. At Qondio, we welcome material about everything
and everything. The possibilities are limitless! Even if your website is about cheese, feel free to write an intel about
your kid's birthday party. You still get backlinks and relevant anchor text.
- Duplicate content will get you banned.
- Keyword stuffing ensures you will get a low grade.
- Spelling and grammar errors will incur the wrath of the screeners
The one thing you do NOT want to do is write a press release, i.e. an advertisement in article form. This is a common mistake.
There is no need to write an article about how great your website, product, or company is, because you get a backlink with screenshot,
bio. There is a fundamental difference between advertising and editorial content. Make sure you understand this.
Writing a unique, high-quality intel is a lot of work. Sure it is. It's fun, but it takes time and effort.
If you don't have time and energy, but still want some exposure and a backlink,
just share something. Share a statement - such as a
thought. Or share a link to something interesting, funny, or useful on the web. You get a link in the form of a signature. Building
backlinks doesn't get much easier and more fun than sharing on Qondio.
Sharing is also a fantastic way to engage other members and build a network. Be sure to re-share, reply, or like when someone shares
something worthwhile. The more you engage the network, the more the network will engage you. That means more comments, more appreciations,
more reactions to your work. And that in turns means more exposure, better performance in the search engine results, more traffic,
more ad revenue, more people on your list - lots of good stuff!
Backlinks from Qondio are awesome, so get plenty of those by writing intel and sharing stuff. But also try to get backlinks from
other sources. You can do this buy submitting intel to IntelMart.
Your article won't be screened. If someone likes it, they will be
republishing it on their own website - with a link to your site. IntelMart is one of the most significant innovations in SEO history,
and while it is new and underutilized now, it is bound to become one of the most valued and imitated SEO resources on the web.
Use it. OWN it.
IntelMart features strong security measures to prevent abuse, and more are coming.
Ad Revenue Sharing
Don't forget to set up ad revenue sharing. It'll only bring in cents until you have a strong, large portfolio of intel, but
you might as well get started early. Find out more here.
