10beasts interview

The Story of 10Beasts.com – An Uncensored Interview with Luqman Khan

About a year ago, I was introduced to a site called 10beasts.com. At the time, it was an 8-page affiliate website in the technology niche that quickly busted out of the sandbox in six-figure profitability within 8 months.  December 2016, it broke $80k. This site became incredibly popular when it was featured on Glen Alsop’s Gaps.com.  I mean, how often does someone go public with an affiliate website of this level? Fast forward one year… 10Beasts grew in size and earnings and flipped for over half a million dollars. And then the unspeakable happened. It got penalized with an unnatural links manual action in Google Search Console. And guess what? The penalty had recovered in 5 days. Meet Luqman Khan. Luqman is the creator, builder, and recoverer of 10beasts. In this no-holds-barred interview, Luqman discusses the entire story of 10beasts, how he got it ranked, how he sold it, and how he recovered it. Read More

Time Management

An SEO’s Guide to Time Management and Analysis

I think we can all agree here… Managing time is extremely difficult in the SEO world. So many projects, clients, affiliate sites… but not enough time to deal with them. I’m a busy guy. 46 live money sites, 4630 PBNs, and three companies does that to a person.

The Black Sheep: Why You’re Stuck on Page 2 (Revised)

I get this question quite often. Today in fact. I’ve been stuck for 3 months on page 2. It doesn’t matter how many links I throw at it. It simply won’t move. I can’t figure it out! Has this ever happened to you? All of your tactics are clean but you simply can’t break into page 1. You have the perfect on-page SEO and your anchor text is properly diversified. Most of the time I see this, it’s because the site has an off-site SEO record that is completely different than the other sites ranking on first page. It’s what I like to call the “Black Sheep Effect”. Read More
