Let's start with the title and work our way down.
Your title is the headline of your pay per call listing and one of the most important elements of your listing. The title of your listing is not only what your customers will see but also what search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo will see. Yes, these search engines matter and can even be a great source of free advertising. Having a good title can save you time and money because people that are looking for your service can find you easier when their searching online. A good title is also easy to share on social media and has instant viral potential. Here are a couple of do's and don'ts when it comes to creating a title for your pay per call listings.
Make each title different - Duplicate titles are not good for your business (even unplished/draft listings). Search engines do not like duplicate content. If you have listings with the same title you will end up competing against yourself and search engines will not know which page to rank higher. As a result, your duplicate pages may be canceled out and look at as a copy. Even if you have 5 listing in the same category make sure they all have different titles and content.
Copy other advisors titles - There may be instances where titles are similar but dupliacating titles will not help your business.
Make your title descritptive - Let the world know what service you're providing.
Make your title plain - Simple titles like "Call Me" or "Hello" will make it harder to be found by search engines and potiental customers.
Use keywords in your title - Using keywords will increase your chances of someone finding the service you have to offer. There are great services where you can find keywords to use according to your profession like Uber suggest and even Google can help you with this.
Keyword dump - Don't fill your listing title with only keywords, use keywords wisely and as you would in a converation (search engines can tell).
Take advangate of the SEO friendly url - One of the many great features of PaidByTheMinute.com is the search engine optimized urls. Pay attention to how your title appears in the search bar
Use special characters and emojis - like & % > " $ * @ # in your title. They do not translate well in search engines and make it harder for your listing to be found.
Instead of using a dollar sign $ write the word money.
Instead of using the & symbol write the word and.
Note: You can use any special charater you wish to express yourself, the system will not stop you from doing so. We are simply making suggestions to you so you can receive the maxisum results for your business.
Include your name in the title - To be found (by name) in search engines and in the paidbytheminute search include your name in one of your listing. For example, if your name is King Reggie. A good title might be "King Reggie available for relationship and love advice." Now, your name will become synomious with the keywords used.
Search engines will look at the title of your listing and see these words:
- love and relationship
- love and relationship advice
Which means when people search these key words in a search engine or on PaidByTheMinute your listing will appear.
A descritptive title gives you more visiblity by breaking down your words and making it easy for people who are seaching for you to find you. A title like "Call Me" only produces two words that are not descriptive and may get you lost in the shuffle.
Add any personal information - such as phone number or address to title.

- Who you are
- Why they should call you
- What to expect when they call you
- Andy special promotions or discounts you offer

Be original and descritive - The more information about yourself and your service you provide the better. This is another area where keywords and long-tail keywords can come in handy. If you struggle with writing there are services out there like fiverr.com where you can find a copywriter to help you write a great descrition. Or you can alway search through the listings of advisors and find an advisor with a great description and has him or her to help you.
Be afraid to share - If you have a story to tell, tell it! If you've overcome a hardship or accomplished a life long goal let the world know. People who share more or people who give more get more. Don't believe the hype if someone tells you that people don't read descritions. Not only do people read descriptions but so do search engines. Studies have found that search engines rank web pages based on several key factors, one being word count. When someone searches Google for a topic, Google wants to return the page with the most content on the subject. If Google finds a page with 10 words on it and another page with 300 words on it. Who do you think will rank the highest?
6. Price Per Minute
You can set your price per minute rate anywhere betwen $0.50 - $75 per minute. You can adjsut your fee to any rate whenever you choose. You may want to give a special rate to different clients depending on the request. For example a webcam call may be more per minute than a call without cam. Or a line for legal advice or fiancial domination may fluctuate depending on the caller. Every call is time and date stamped in your call log and your payment is updated immediately after every call, in real time.
When you feature your listing it receives a red pay per minute lable and appears on the landing page of paidbytheminute.com for maximum visiblity. Pay per call listings that are featured also rotate between the five spaces on the home page and change to a different set of featured advisors everytime the page is refreshed.
8. On Top
Places your pay per call listing at the top of the search directory. When anyone does a general search the lsitings on top appear first. A listing can be on top, featured, both or neither. If neither option is selected your listing is place in the directories nearest avaialbe possition.
Images are a great tool to uset to give your callers a visiual of the service your provide. Be sure that your images are resized so the width max is at 1000px. For example if you have a photo that is 2000 x 2000 please resize it so the width max is 1000 (and the size aspect is locked). If you try to upload an image and you have issues, it's probably becuase of the image size. Smartphones with HD cameras tend to take very high resolution images (which is great). However they are also large and be problematic at times.
