• How to build and run an SEO Company: @kaiserthesage asks @SEO_Hacker

    A few weeks ago, Sean did an interview of me on their blog at SEO-Hacker, and as originally planned - I'm doing the second part of the series here. I've known Sean Si ever since I started blogging, and he's one of my closest friends in the industry. We used to work together for a few campaigns (I was part of the SEO-Hacker team when it was just starting).

  • Cartoonify your blog for top SEO results

    Cartoonify your blog for top SEO results was written by David Leonhardt, THGM professional SEO consultant. Cartoons give a blog – or any website – an unfair advantage in the search engines. Cartoons can turn an unremarkable blog post into prime link-bate, and a web page into SEO rock star status. In the crowded world of blogging, the path to success is always to distinguish yourself.

Though I previously shared that I had a lot of success on the back of helping people get over Penguin 2.

  • Search: Not Provided: What Remains, Keyword Data Options, the Future

    In late 2011, Google announced an effort to make search behavior more secure. Logged-in users were switched to using httpS from http. This encrypted their search queries from any prying eyes, and kept from being passed on to websites the users visits after seeing search results.

  • September 2013 Niche Site Income Report

    September was another month I would rather forget. My numbers were down for the second straight month. If I was trying to be all glass half full about it I could remark that there was an upwards trend towards the end of the month.

  • Adjusting My Niche Site Strategy

    … consisting of one front page article plus 4 additional related posts. I usually use Textbroker.com but if the subject is very specialized I will sometimes use Elance.com instead.

  • August 2013 Niche Site Income Report

    I wish I had happier news to report but this month’s results were pretty disappointing. I did spend almost half the month in Fiji for a wedding but even so I was very unhappy with my August 2013 Niche Site Income Report totals. In fact, this is the very first time I took a step backwards in terms of earnings. My actual monthly earnings went from $1,655.51 to $1,421.23, a decrease of over $200.
