RankCrew New Site Package Walkthrough

Posted by: admin on February 20th, 2015

You can view a PDF version of this article, if you prefer, by clicking this link.

“I am ready to order a RankCrew new site package, but I am not sure what to enter into each field along the way including the use of spintax. Can you please provide some insight?”

First, you have to understand that the new site package in RankCrew comprises several different individual tasks.

50 Social Bookmarks
50 RSS Feed Directory Submissions
50 High PR Web Directory Submissions
50 article directory submissions
50 High PR Forum Profile Links

Next, you have to understand what spintax is. Spintax is a type of coding language that takes multiple words or phrases and mixes them with other words and phrases. So by doing this, you can have different variations of descriptions (as an example of one of the many uses of spintax) and have a different version for each without having to go through and write them one by one.

Now back to the first point. Since there are different tasks, the description is going to vary. Each type of site that we submit to is a little different, so the text that is included in each field for each site type is going to vary depending on the type of site.

I’ll give an example for each type as I go through the process for my site which is a Germany tourism website.

Social Bookmarks

For this, I’ll submit an internal page. I’ll submit this

It’s an article about Checkpoint Charlie.

So the Page URL is

For the Title, I’ll use the built in tool to build my spintax (see image to left), so I don’t need to actually format the spintax:

I’ll use these titles:

Checkpoint charlie tourism info
Check Point Charlie in Berlin
Berlin Tourism Hotspot “Checkpoint Charlie”
What is Checkpoint Charlie?
Checkpoint Charlie facts

I’ll split up the percentages to equal 100%. Since there are 5 of them, that’s 20% each. You could use more than this. The more the better.

That produces the following spintax:

{Checkpoint charlie tourism info|Check Point Charlie in Berlin|Berlin Tourism Hotspot “Checkpoint Charlie”|What is Checkpoint Charlie?|Checkpoint Charlie facts}

Now I’ll add a description. For this I will not use the tool. I’ll just write the spintax myself. This is what I’ll use:

{Checkpoint charlie|Check Point Charlie} is {a great|one of the best|a fantastic} {tourist|tourism} {spots|locations} in {Germany|germany|Deutschland|Berlin|berlin}. I {highly|really|really highly} {recommend|endorse} it.

Now, for the keyowrds. I’ll just add a few related keywords. This is what I’ll use:

checkpoint charlie, check point charlie, checkpoint charlie berlin

Now I’ll click “Next Step:

RSS Feed Directory Submission

Now we’re on the RSS Feed Directory Submission Task. The URL that I added to the last task is prepopulated. So I just want to ensure that I still want to use that URL. In this case I do not, since RSS directories only accept root domains. A root domain is the homepage of the site. In other words, you can’t submit an internal page url to RSS feeds. So I’m going to replace the current URL with the homepage url, which is

Now it needs the RSS Feed URL. If you use WordPress, your feed URL is probably That is is case for this site. So I’m going to enter into that field.

It is also possible that your site does not have a RSS feed. If that is case, you would select the “My site does not have an RSS feed” box, and move on to the next task for the package.

Now I’ll change the title to suit my homepage. Since the title for the previous task was prepopulated, again, I need to make sure that this title “fits” with the URL that I’m submitted for this task. Since the URL is the homepage URL (and RSS feed URL) then the title does NOT fit. I need to adjust it so that it fits the homepage.

Again, I’ll use the built-in tool for my spintax. These are the titles I’ll use:

Everything about Germany
EverythingAboutGermany Dot Com
Learn Everything about Germany
Everything about Germany Tourism
Everything Tourists in Germany need to know

I’m using my “brand” keywords instead of the keywords I want to rank for. That’s because if I use the keywords I want to rank for very much at all it can easily trigger a over-optimization penalty with Google. To avoid that, I use brand keywords.

Again, I’ll use 20% for each since there are 5 of them … I just split up the percentages so each title is used equally.

Now we’re change the description since the pre-populated description was for the checkpoint charlie post and this is for the homepage.

I’ll use this spintax:

{We provide|We offer|Learn} {information|everything you need to know} {about|regarding} {Germany|Deutschland} and {traveling there|being a tourist there}. {Visit|Come to} our {website|site} to {learn more|get started}.

Now I’ll change the keywords to suite the homepage:

germany tourism, traveling in Germany, everything about germany, germany, german tourism

Now I’ll click “next step.”

High PR Web Directory Submission

Now I’m on the “High PR Web Directory Submission” page. Again, we can only use homepage URL’s for this task, so we’ll leave the Page URL as it is, since it is our homepage and not an internal page.

We will change the title, description and keywords to those that we used for the previous task. You can click the “Previous task” button if you want to go back and copy each one over. It’s not a bad idea to paste them into a notepad doc for future use.

For the name you can either use your own name or a pen name. It doesn’t matter. I’ll use my real name.

For the email field I’ll leave that blank. RankCrew workers will use a email address for this, which will automatically click verification emails for me!

Now I’ll click “next step.”

Article Directory Submission

Now we’re on the “Article Directory Submission” task.

This page URL can be either the homepage URL or an internal page URL. That’s up to you. I’ll use my checkpoint charlie article url for this:

For the “Keywords” field I’ll leave the keywords related to checkpoint charlie in there that were prepopulated.

For the actual article I’ll leave the title, article body and resource box blank and I will select the “Travel” category from the ArticleBuilder category drop-down menu.

For the resource box I’ll write the following:

At {EverythingAboutGermany|} {I|we} {provide|offer} {information|important facts} about {traveling|being a tourist} in {Germany|Deutschland}. {Click|Visit} our {website|site} at {||} for {more info|more information|info on Germany tourism}.

For the URL’s, I use spintax to add in different variations, which is good for SEO. Again, I don’t use keywords that I want to rank for in the actual links. I just use my brand, which is “EverythingAboutGermany” and URL variations like www.

Once this is done I’ll click “Next Step.”

IF you provide your own content (you will have to if ArticleBuilder doesn’t cover your niche) make sure you either provide several different articles (paste each one into the built-in tool) or use one version with spintax! If you use the same exact article with no spintax it will be declined by many article directories and Google will not index most of the ones that do approve it.

High PR Forum Profile Links

Now on to the last step: “High PR Forum Profile Links.”

For this task we can use either the homepage URL or an internal page URL. I’ll use the URL for the Checkpoint Charlie post for this:

I’ll leave those pre-populated keywords in there since they are the checkpoint charlie keywords. Now I’ll write a short bio:

I {love|really like|enjoy|really enjoy} Germany and {have been to|have gone to|have visited} {checkpoint charlie|check point charlie} a {few|couple} times. I just {love|like} Germany {in general|as a whole}, so {PM|contact|message|email} me if you do {too|as well}. {Glad|Very happy|Happy} to be here!

Now I’ll click “Submit Package Details” and I’m done! :)

I can click the “My Orders” link in the top menu to check the status of it.


The Difference Between Jonathan Leger’s Different Content Solutions

Posted by: admin on April 24th, 2013

As you may know, many of Jon’s products have provided solutions in the form of either providing quality content or helping you write and/or produce quality content quickly and cheaply.

But with all the options, how do you choose which is best for you? In this article my goal is to eliminate all confusion in that area, so you know exactly which of Jon’s content products is best fit to suite your needs. His content products are:

Article Builder (AB:) AB produces a seemingly unlimited number of nearly unique (guaranteed to be at least 75% unique) content in over 100 different niches at the push of a button. You can also (very quickly and easily) add your blog(s) to AB and set it to automatically post highly relevant content to your blog(s) on autopilot, each and every day! It will insert images, videos and it will even link your clickbank affiliate links to random, targeted anchor text in the articles (with the nofollow attribute added) for you automatically. It finds the products and does it all for you. On top of that, you can insert “tip” blocks of nearly unique content into your old content to update them, increase the word count and improve the user experience.

In one sentence, I would describe AB as an automated content generator, that (believe it or not) produces HIGHLY readable, quality content in over 100 different niches. All of the content is written and edited by native English speakers and the content snippets are mixed into millions of highly unique variations, but since it is all human edited, all of the variations still make sense and provide value to the reader. Click Here to see a DEMO

The Best Spinner (TBS:) TBS is constantly referred to as “The Best Article Spinner on the Market” by it’s users in discussion forums and on their blogs. That’s because TBS has an enormous user-generated English thesaurus (TBS also has German, French, Spanish, Italian, Swedish and Portuguese thesauruses as well now) with hundreds of millions of entries added by REAL users writing real-world articles! It allows you to quickly and easily spin multiple versions of articles by rotating through different variations of words, sentences or phrases. So you load up one article, add spin syntax (a few special characters that TBS recognizes) and start adding variations of each word, phrase or sentence directly from the huge user-generated thesaurus! Once you’d added all of the variations you want, you simply click a button and TBS generates as many different variations as you need. Click Here to see a DEMO.

Instant Article Wizard (IAW:) In a nutshell, IAW goes out and pulls snippets of highly relevant content from authoritative websites on any keyword you input into it and then takes those snippets and combines them into one article. It also connects to and works with the TBS API which identifies all keywords and phrases in the newly generated article that have variations available in the TBS thesaurus, so you can very quickly and easily created multiple versions of the article that are completely unique! You can also reorder sentences and paragraphs with a couple of clicks, set it up to automatically post the articles to your blog and check copyscape for uniqueness. There are loads of other optional features, but in general IAW allows you to create unique articles without having to research or write ANYTHING yourself! Click Here to see a DEMO.

Answer Analyst (AA:) In Jon’s words “is a powerful tool for finding the answers to any questions you might have, which makes creating content around those subjects incredibly easy.” It’s basically a tool that automates the process of researching content topics. You simply ask the software a question, or insert a keyword, and it craws the web, finding answers to your question. You can then select the answers that you like and add them to your research, which you can then use to write your articles quickly and easily with the absolute best research done for you and displayed right before your eyes. Click Here to see a DEMO.

Instant Article Factory (IAF:) IAF is a tool that helps you to create articles VERY quickly, by using a series of randomized templates, which are provided for you (although you can add your own if you like as well.) You select the template you want (like top 3 tips, pros and cons etc.) and it generates one of many variations of it, allowing you to basically fill in the blanks, making it more and more unique. It also supports spinning, allowing you to add multiple versions of any word or phrase through the article and it also connects to the TBS API, so you have that enormous synonym database at your fingertips. Once you’ve created your articles, you can click a button to create various unique versions. Click Here to see a DEMO

Jiffy Articles (JA:) JA works similarly to IAF at the highest level, but has over 5,000 different templates in 81 different categories, whereas IAF has a limited number of templates. The template text provides examples on the title, the introductory paragraph, the body points, the conclusion and the author resource box. You can quickly and easily rewrite each one into your own words. JA also and allows you to search for and find those templates by keyword. Once you’ve created your article, you can check the spelling and grammar, automatically post it to your blog or download it to use it wherever you like. Click Here to see a DEMO

Thrifty Content (TC:) TC is an affordable, monthly PLR content provider. New topics for the articles are added every month and you get a BARE MINIMUM of 1,500 new articles each and every month! All articles are written by native English speakers and are of top quality! They are all a minimum of 500 words, much pass copyscape before being released and are all passed through quality control before you ever see them! All TC subscribers also gain access to a very cool article rewriter tool, which will help you rewrite articles FAST. Click Here to see a DEMO

iNeedArticles (INA:) INA is very simply a content marketplace. You, as the customer, tell us what topic(s) you need an article(s) on and our team of NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKING authors gets to work. You have the option to select only writers with high ratings and you can pay a little more to put a “rush” on the article. Content is SUPER cheap and high quality. The price is only $0.007 per word! Yes, that’s LESS than one cent per word. Click Here to see Article Samples

Article Builder Blogs can now be Automatically Monetized!

Posted by: admin on July 17th, 2012

I wanted to quickly let you know about a new, major update that Jonathan has just pushed out to all Article Builder users!

Article Builder can now locate keywords in the blog posts that match ClickBank products related to the category of the post and convert those keywords in the article into the user’s ClickBank affiliate link.

It’s very simple, and automatic. Under “Advanced Settings” in the job details, look for the “Monetization Options” and check the “Add links to matching ClickBank products in the posts” checkbox. Also, be sure to add your ClickBank Username in the field provided, otherwise it won’t work.

For an example of how it works, take a look at this post on Jonathan’s test blog — it has the CB hyperlinks in it:

Each set of keywords it finds a matching product for will only be hyperlinked once in the post to avoid an excessive number of matches, and a maximum of 5 keywords will be hyperlinked in any single post.

As I’m sure you can see, this is a very powerful new features and offers a GREAT reason to send out a mailer! If you haven’t already, you can read more about the Article Builder Affiliate Program, get affiliate material and sign up to be an affiliate at
