The only downside to this strategy is the sheer volume of time it takes to do it manually.
First, you gotta research the authorities, hunt down their most relevant content, and do a lot of copy and pasting.
Then take all of that copy and pasting to one service and fill in forms by hand, to make a new feed...
And THEN take that new feed to yet another service, fill in more forms, and then take it to two other places where you again... you guessed it... fill in more forms.
While I was excited about the results that I was seeing, my poor virtual assistant began to complain about the crazy amounts of time it was taking to complete each step in the technique. My students were wearing themselves out trying to manually keep up with the technique as well.
It immediately became clear that there was a need to automate these steps so that my students and my long-suffering virtual assistant could get on with the really important stuff like making me money.
I wanted an application where I could perform the whole thing, start to end in 5 minutes or less, without ever copy/pasting a single thing.
So I sat down and created an application that took all the lengthy processes and automated them, eliminating the need for manual research, copy and pasting as well as tracking information and URLs.
Then I gave the beta of the application to my students.
They got the same stunning ranking results and increase in traffic as before, but with almost 80% less time and effort.
It goes without saying that my virtual assistant was also thrilled by how easy the whole thing had become.
The application became RSS Authority Sniper, and I'm offering the all new and improved version 3.0 for the first time to the public today.
