Google Voice is a very useful service that allows users to sign up and acquire a free telephone number that includes unlimited voicemail, unlimited SMS messaging, and voicemail transcriptions. Needless to say, Google Voice is totally hot, and I am surprised that there isn’t more buzz being generated about the service. Ironically though, it wasn’t until yesterday when I realized that my Google Voice account has some value to it. Watch the video below to discover how you can use Google voice to get free unique and keyword rich content for your blog or website without having to write it yourself.
It all started back early in 2007 when I created a free account on a site called GrandCentral. I used my account as a way to communicate with my blog readers. I posted my telephone number and readers were able to call and leave me voicemail. This in return gave me ideas for things to write about in future articles. A few months later, I stopped using GrandCentral and it seems that Google also purchased them later that year in July.
My account remained inactive since then and it was just recently when I logged back in due to receiving an email notification of a voicemail received. At that point I realized the value my account held. I soon discovered that Google Voice is available by invite only and that my GrandCentral account was migrated automatically. Naturally, I took more interest in Google Voice once it registered in my mind and I discovered that I had something that wasn’t available to the general public.
Google recently announced that they are starting to load accounts up with invites. I haven’t received any invites loaded into my account as of yet. However, when I do, I’ll be more than happy to share them with you. In the mean time, if you’re really eager about getting a Google Voice account, you can look on eBay, as many people are selling their invites there. This isn’t uncommon. Gmail invites as well as the more recent Google Wave invites both have seen the auction block on eBay. At any rate, share your thoughts about Google Voice, we’d like to learn more about what you think.
