Diggity Marketing Blog: SEO Testing Results & Case Studies
Making a move into a new affiliate niche is never a decision to take lightly.
I know I don’t.
No matter your level of affiliate SEO experience, achieving success in a profitable niche takes a significant investment of money, expertise, and — that most finite of resources — time.
But two weeks ago, I took the plunge.
I entered a new niche I’ve been eying for over a year — and I’m not looking to get in and out quick.
I’m in it to win it for the long-haul, and you’re invited to join me on the journey.
In this first installment, you’ll learn about my approach to:
- Choosing the niche
- The pros and cons of buying an existing website
- Finding the right site to purchase
- Basic affiliate site valuation and negotiation
I’ve set the bar for success high — I’ve challenged my team to go from $900 monthly revenue to $10k+ as fast as we possibly can. read more…
With the holiday season almost upon us, this month may be your last chance to buckle down and meet your goals. Fortunately, this month’s rich set of guides and data breakdowns will give you the edge you need to make two months of progress in one.
The guides are first. They’ll teach you why online businesses make the best cash flow investments, how to create copy for higher conversions, and a possible cause for high rankings that don’t correspond to increased click-through rates.
After that, you can catch up on the latest data. You’ll learn a process for predicting the ROI of SEO, whether there’s evidence that Google’s next update will leverage BERT, and Youtube’s dominance of Google video searches.
Finally, you’ll get the latest SEO news. It includes a breakdown of Google’s AI announcement, some recent chatter on how site sections can impact an entire site’s rank, and an official announcement of my Black Friday deals. read more…
I’m about to interview one of my favorite SEOs in the world, Julie Adams.
I first learned about Julie’s story in The Affiliate Lab, where she shared her experience of quitting the digital marketing agency that she worked at and switching over to affiliate SEO.
Now, she’s making more money in one month than she did in an entire year at the agency!
Stick around for this interview because we’re going to get into not only her story but her entire process on how she ranks websites — from backlinks to on-site SEO.
Basically, everything she does to get her affiliate portfolio ranked today. read more…
You’ve got three months left to make this year the one that breaks all your records. With everything you’re going to learn in this roundup, that may be more than enough time.
We’ll start with a pack of guides. You’ll learn how (and when) to use tier 1 vs. tier 2 PBNs, why websites are an evergreen business, and how you need to change your tactics to handle in-house SEO.
Then, we’ve got data you can use to impact your operations. Learn how top SEO companies are optimizing their sites, whether emojis in subject lines can affect your open rates, and what causes rank volatility by the numbers.
Finally, we’ll close with two news items you can’t miss. Learn the results of SEOs voting on the best Facebook group and whether we have reason to believe that Google will soon be launching authority profiles. read more…
New content standards may be coming that will require you to get real, credible authors for your content if you want to stand a chance.
If you’re relying on content with fake personas, or content that was written under your own name (when you’re not an expert in the field), your website may not be ready.
I’m going to show you how to get real experts and influencers to take credit for your content. It’s going to help you build immense amounts of trust while developing a website that’s ready for E-A-T implementation.
That could be really difficult and really expensive for many niches. But what if I told you that this transition can be easy?
Let’s begin with a look into the standards we’re trying to meet (E-A-T), what relationship they have to the algorithm, and why you should care, even though they’re still on the way. read more…
The last quarter of the year is here. It’s time to ask yourself if you’re beating your personal records from last year or losing ground. If it’s not looking good, this roundup may be the boost you need to clear the final stretch and come out a winner.
In this month’s guides, we’ll cover Ryan Stewart’s 1-day SEO hack, a breakdown of the three stages of link building, a new method for finding local SEO keywords in bulk, and a neutral look at whether PBNs are still performing.
Then, you can catch up on the latest research with case studies. You’ll see the data on building backlinks with a stat page, a breakdown of Google user behavior, and whether your SERP position affects how much room Google gives your description.
We’ll close with the news. This month, a college kid fooled tens of thousands of people with an AI-generated blog, and Apple made moves that suggest it may be launching a search engine. read more…
This isn’t your typical blog post about SEO, but perhaps the knowledge behind what motivates and guides SEOs.

If you prefer to live life on the cutting edge, this roundup is for you. Several of SEO’s most innovative minds have published pieces this month, and we’ve got them covered here so you won’t miss out.
It starts with some chunky guides. You’ll learn how to get the perfect length for a blog post in any niche, some advice on doing a 100K launch with no ads, plus a neat method you can use to scale keyword research using Python (don’t worry, you can copy the code out of the article).

If you’re pouring your energy into marketing niches with awful growth potential, you’re losing money. You may be losing more than you think.
The difference between niches that make money and those that don’t can be millions of dollars per month.
