It’s the full session:
I originally planed to make two different sessions – but finally I decided to keep the FULL- LENGTH CONTENT in ONE SESSION. Just to avoid any confusion !

With this Session I am diving into Social Media. Actually, I didn’t plan to start with Social Media as early – however – when I started to work on The Hobnocker Project – something extraordinary happened. And that was so positive, that I had no other choice and decided to publish that great content earlier than planned and actually expected.

THE RIEDER RULES – SEO that works to generate Website Traffic and Ranking

After digging deeper into the world of digital marketing I realized that there are many miss-leading ways in the SEO world.

What everyone want’s is traffic – there is nothing wrong about it. SEO became the field, the art, the task, the term and tool to rank webpages as high as possible in the SERPS.

The Rieder Rules with SEO
THE RIEDER RULES – SEO that works to generate Website Traffic and Ranking

But what I miss around this topic is the fact that actual PEOPLE like you and me are responsible for TRAFFIC. Yes, of course if you do have a bunch of nice and strong keywords and with them you rank high in google – you’ll get your organic traffic.

But the core question is: How can you reach it ? How can you make sure your page is at least within the TOP 10 of the google SERPS ?

Hobnocker Definition

What is a Hobnocker ?

Author:+Bernhard Rieder G+Page

The Hobnocker project !

I just recently noticed that lots of people asked me: “What is a Hobnocker ?”. I also figured that the Fiction Term creates lot’s of fun. When ever people are talking about it – they smile, laugh and it immediately brings fun into their lives. 

So I thought, it’s time to support that topic and award it with a really cool & funny page. And so it happened that the project Hobnocker went finally live on the 1st of July 2014.The site can be found under it’s original name – and it covers all relevant topics about getting hobnocked.Now you might ask yourself one question: What does Hobnocker stand for ? What does it mean ? What’s the definition ? What is a Hobnocker ?
Well… I highly suggest you figure that out by yourself when you visit the page. Heads up, it’s all family friendly content, so no need to be scared. Relax, breath and take it easy. lol;

Session #6 – Mike Tyson net worth and Competition

Author:+Bernhard Rieder G+Page

Session #6 – Mike Tyson net worth and your Competition – How does Tyson help you for your market research ?

In this Session I want to show you how you can use the google Keyword Planner in order to find and identify a Market. But wait a minute. What has that to do with Mike Tyson and his net worth ? Well, I promise, you’ll figure that out soon. You have to read till the end of the article.


The Keyword Planner tool is of course for free, the only thing you need to do is to sign up for a Google AdWords account.

From there you can go to the tools tab and activate the Keyword Planner tool. When you do that, you are able to fetch data from the google search engine. And so you can figure out what people are actually searching for on google.

So here we go, here is SESSION #6 – FULL HD VIDEO:

What does this tell you ? Well, it tells you if people are looking for a specific term – and if that’s the case, you can say that there is obviously a market for that – or not, depending on the search volume of course.

guest blogging stinks and this is why

Pest Blogging Stinks – and this is why !

Author:+Bernhard Rieder G+Page

Did I get that right ? Did you really say Pest Blogging ? What the heck is that ?

I know I know… people are going to kill me just because of my headline. But before you judge, hear me. And yes, please listen also to my Podcast I am going to make about that topic, explaining exactly my perspective of view.

So.. now.. Bernhard the Alien … tell me, what the heck do you mean with pest-blogging ?


Well… let’s get started. If you read the latest and greatest article from Matt Cutts about the decay and fall of Guest blogging, you’ll hopefully realize that he made a very good point. I see it actually very clear. To get straight to the point. There are lot’s and lot’s of guest bloggers out there who obviously use guest-blogging to get link-juice only. And I say it loud and clear… lot’s of them.

Yes, lot’s of SEO service companies want to show results. And yes, there are also many innocent souls out there who don’t mean any harm and are happy to do guest-blogging.

And it’s really hard to differentiate. But we have to face the fact, that the existing hype,  and I would almost see it as a bad habit, is massively used by marketers and for marketing purpose only. To boost their Pagerank, or to boost their rankings and sales – period.

And such specific guest posts serve only the purpose for link building – and yes such guest blogs deserve a special name. And so I baptized this blogging approach “PEST-BLOGGING” – massive amount of guest-blogging articles that serves only link-building. Continue reading

Podcast #4 – Alien Marketing 101 and Lemonade Stand Ideas

Author:+Bernhard Rieder G+Page

Lemonade Stand Ideas

As you know I am a visual person and I like to keep things as simple as possible. I was attending many marketing classes, did active marketing for over 10 years and also read tones of books around that topic. However, there was always one thing that drove me nuts:

lemonade stand ideas
Why wasn’t it possible to find something more simplified ? Why have we lost to make training more fun ? As easy and playful and fun it was in elementary school ? And why did the learning process get such a pain in the butt ?

I am a strong believer in having fun while learning. Serious and dry content always killed me. I wasn’t entertained and I got bored so fast that I felt asleep.

I don’t think we make good progress if we just read about things.  Where is the thrill ?  You can lose interest so easy and fast if there is no active engagement, no passion, no meaning, especially if things are getting more complicated.

And that’s why I took this obstacle as a true task and opportunity to start my Alien Marketing 101.  Lessons super simplified.

World Cup Predictions – Is this little man going to make it ?

Author:+Bernhard Rieder G+Page

The World Cup Predictions explained:

Many Artists asked me what I could possible do to create an Image Campaign to HELP someone and create some “BUZZ” ?

I actually bothered me not being able to do something – just a tiny little bit. There must be something I could do – something simple and easy. Even if it’s just a mouse click. So what t in heaven could I possible do ?

It doesn’t really matter if you are a Freelance Graphic Designer, a Photographer, a Writer, an Actor, an Illustrator, an Animator, a Visual Effects Guru, a Sculpting Artist, Filmmaker, etc. Everyone sits in the same boat. So let’s face it – it’s a true challenge and a really hard task – many obstacles have to be taken.

Why not doing something  good and helping this little boy ?
