Default Richie, You're NOT gonna believe this, but...

I just completed creating a mini-course dealing with JUST that subject.

Hi Richie,
There are an unbelievable number of brand new, freshly scrubbed, inexperienced (newbies - why do I dislike that word so?)Internet users plunging into the sink-or-swim Internet Marketing waters every single day.

I decided to publish a little mini-course which deals exactly with the subject of your post.

The goal is to help these people put a little quick change into their pockets to help them get settled.

Here is "Day Two" exactly as it is written in the mini-course, in answer to your request.

God bless.

Day 2 - of A Five-Day Mini eCourse

Today's Lesson:

Let's first examine the problem - it's a common problem. Many
commercial websites these days have a hundred or more pages. Portals
and heavy information-based sites often boast thousands of links.

The larger enterprises have staff whose only job is ensure the smooth
running and maintenance of the site.

However, there are literally millions of websites that have slowly grown
over the years, and yet is operated by a single individual.

Here's an opportunity to earn quick cash.

Here's what well-known Internet guru, Markus S. Allen recently
had to say, "About 6 months ago, a subscriber found 3 spelling
mistakes and an invalid Web site link on my new Web site. He
e-mailed me about it and asked me to send him $5 via PayPal
to reveal the mistakes and fixes.

Within minutes, I zapped the payment to him. His letter
certainly got my attention... especially mention of the
invalid Web site reference. After all, if visitors to my
site can't navigate, it's money out of my pocket.

It was the best $5 investment..."

Over a period of time many of these site experience broken links for
one reason or another. It could be that a page no longer exists. It could
be that the image, audio, video, link to another site, etc. no longer work.

This means that any visitor who clicks there will get the dreaded "404
not found" display. No webmaster likes that. Everyone tries to avoid that
at all cost. This could substantially hurt business.

Updating thousands of pages is laborious work...I know, I run a content
rich website. It's a real pain!

Xenu to the rescue!

(Of course I have NO affiliate with this marvellous software)

Xenu is a wondeful software that analyzes a website quicker than you
can say, "Broken Links Quicker Fixer- Upper." The first great news is
that it's fast...blazingly fast. The second great news is...IT'S FR*E!

* Xenu's Link Sleuth (TM) checks Web sites for broken links

* Link verification is done on "normal" links, images, frames, plug-ins,
backgrounds, local image maps, style sheets, scripts and java applets.
It displays a continously updated list of URLs which you can sort by
different criteria.


* Simple, no-frills user-interface
* Can re-check broken links (useful for temporary network errors)
* Simple report format, can also be e-mailed
* Executable file less than 500K
* Supports SSL websites ("https:// ")
* Partial testing of ftp and gopher sites
* Detects and reports redirected URLs
* Site Map

It's a snap to input a URL (any URL) into your browser, and just press
the go button. Then presto, Xenu brings you back results in
"make-your-head-spin" speed.

Now here's what to do. Send a nice polite letter to your prospect
explaining that you've found a large number of broken links on his site.
Be sure to send a small sample of the many links found. Xenu does a
great job of either displaying the list in regular text, or as an email.

Explain to the prospect that he could either ignore this little tip,
and then labouriously search for each and every one of the thousands
of broken links himself...


He could pop a measely $10. into your PayPal account for a full
comprehensive report which will be rushed off to him by email.

If you do about 20 analysis per day (this is easy...remember Xenu
examines and then compiles data at the speed of lightening).

You're almost guaranteed to make anywhere from $50. - $150.

Try'll like it. (Oops! I'm dating myself :-)

I hope you profit bountifully from this information. Until tomorrow
(Day 3) when we'll discuss "The Treasure Chest of Trade Secrets."

Until then, may God richly bless you.
