February 13th, 2011 : 48 Comments ·

Have you ever noticed that even with all of Google’s claims of algo changes, some sites continue to thrive no matter what?

Have you ever wondered what their secret is?

Well, there really is no secret. It’s the linking. Always has been and probably always will be until the search engines come up with a totally unique or different way to rank sites.

But everyone does link building right? Well, yea, sort of, But not everyone succeeds, so what is the difference between success and failure?

Google and Bing are constantly getting better at determining what defines a garbage link. [Read more →]

December 12th, 2010 : 9 Comments ·

As someone who launched one of the first SEO companies back in the mid 90’s, I can state without hesitation that I’ve seen almost every SEO book, document, video, and everything else that has come along related to SEO in the past 15 years.

I want to tell you about a new SEO guide from Duncan Carver that I consider to be the…

“Definitive SEO Guide of the Modern SEO Era”.

It’s called The Ultimate Link Building Dossier, and it’s simply one of the best SEO guides I have ever seen. Period.

And if you think I’m BS’ing you, well, there’s not much I can do about that. [Read more →]

What is LinkitPro?

October 13th, 2010 : 44 Comments ·

I’ve had a ton of emails over the past couple of days, from foks wanting to know exactly what LinkitPro, (formerly Bookabonk) was all about.

First of all, let me tell you that I am not out to reinvent the wheel. What I like to focus on are things that actually work. I’m not trying to create the latest and greatest software tool, or money making scheme. What I try and do is provide the opportunity for everyone to use the same methods I’ve been using. That’s how Linkvana came to be. That’s how Linkumate came to be, I was using those techniques long before the product or services ever became public. [Read more →]

Apparantly according to some of the comments and many emails I received, the word ‘bonk’ means something quite different in the UK than it does in the US. Actually it really doesn’t mean anything here other than a sound you might hear if you hit yourself on the head with a frying pan.

So… Bookabonk is now officially LinkitPro.. [

October 11th, 2010 : 23 Comments ·

What is the single biggest factor that allows one link campaign to succeed where another similar link campaign fails?

Think about it?

Is it the quality of the site your link is coming from? Well.. sometimes..

Is it the volume of links you acquire? Ummm.. that might be a part of it.

Is Social Bookmarking effective? Well, yes, if done the right way.

What about web profiles? Yep, they can work too. Most of you have probably seen the packets that Angela Edwards has been selling for a couple years. Pretty good stuff right? Yea, sort of. [Read more →]

You’ve heard me talk about Super Apprentice before. I own it.

Chances are, if you’re reading this, one of your goals is to make a living online. Full time.
