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 only possible way I can stay efficient and continue to grow my businesses is through strategic and systematized time management.

A Marketer’s Ultimate List of 16 Must-Read Books

Growing up, I used to hate reading.  And not in a typical all-kids-hate-books fashion.  I would actually avoid reading at all costs.

When I was 19 years old, I read a book that literally changed my life (listed below).  It had such a profound effect on me that it forged a habit of reading that I’ve carried out to this day. Over the years, I’ve compiled a list of must-read books that have had significant effect on my life, both professionally and personally. I’m happy to be sharing them here with you. Read More

How to Properly Track and Manage Your Backlinks

I am absolutely O.C.D. when it comes to tracking, measuring, and recording data.  One of the best skills you can have in SEO is to be able to stay efficiently organized.  Only by keeping track of what actions you’ve taken, will you be effectively able to make correct decisions about what to do next. Famous management consultant Peter Drucker once said: “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.”   I couldn’t agree more. Unfortunately, not everyone has the same nerdy obsession I have over collecting data.  Every week, I perform SEO consultations for various clients.  When someone doesn’t show up with a list of the links pointing to their site, I simply can’t help diagnose their offsite SEO problems.  There’s simply nothing to talk about. I decided to make this post to help make your (and my) life easier by explaining how to properly track and manage your backlinks. Read More

Quick Indexing with the Video Sitemap Trick

Indexing can be a pain in the ass.  Until I found this trick, I was fumbling around impatiently, trying to use pinging services and social bookmark blasts in order to get something indexed. This trick is: Reliable (at the time of this writing): If it doesn’t index your site, then your site won’t index period.  Its probably a penalized domain. Fast: 5 min – 2 hours Safe: Index-forcing with tools like pingers is an SEO tool.  Google doesn’t like SEO’s.  Don’t do stuff that only an SEO would do. Read More

Reduce Sandbox Length by Timing your Backlinks

Reduce Sandbox Length by Timing your Backlinks

What is Sandboxing? Definition: When you build links to a site and you see little to no ranking benefit. Back around mid-2014, we started to see a sandboxing effect on new domains that had been recently registered. Before that time, you used to be able to register a new domain, build some backlinks to it, and within 5 days it could potentially be on page 1.  Now a days, SEOs are reporting sandbox periods of 3-6 months long. People have been discussing various ways to beat the sandbox and reduce the time it takes to rank.  In general, the most widespread theory is that you want to create a viral effect. Here’s my recipe for sandbox reduction, and the results I’ve gotten by using it… Read More
