I have a small confession to make…I don’t enjoy the process of link building, whether it’s internal or external.
It’s slow and time consuming, especially if you do it manually yourself.
Or it’s quick and expensive if you decide to outsource the task.
I just want to do my keyword research, publish content, and rank!
I won’t go into all the pros and cons of manually building external links (that is, links on other sites pointing back to yours) – it’s controversial.
Black-hat methods, white-hat methods and grey-hat methods than sit somewhere in-between.
Why Do You Need Links At All?
I’ve been building websites and trying to rank them on …
My recommendation would be WordPress. Being the most popular blogging platform and CMS on the planet means that it also has the biggest number of addons available.
There are tens of thousands of themes – free and paid – to make your blog look the way you want. And there are tens of thousands (possibly hundreds of thousands) of plugins that allow you to extend the functionality of your blog.
The downside if it being the most popular platform is that WordPress sites are also the most targeted by hackers. Something like 30,000 sites are hacked each day.
So knowing how to make your blogs secure, or having someone build a secure …
ArticleBuilder, is a time-tested push-button content creator, that has been publishing good quality auto-generated articles that have ranked in Google for over 5 years now.
I use it to create content on my Tier 2 sites (sites that link to my money sites) and Tier 3 sites (sites that link to my Tier 2 sites). It can be set up to auto-post content to my sites on my schedule.
The tool can also spin multiple articles together into a single spintax article that can be used to create a multitude of unique articles. I do this to create articles to use with SyndBuddy (which I reviewed here) so that …
When I started building WordPress blogs a few years back, they were constantly being hacked. I spent countless hours rebuilding sites only for them to get hacked again.
But slowly I learned how to harden sites against hackers. It’s a skill not enough WordPress webmasters learn and many are unaware of just how easily an unprotected WP blog can be hacked.
Since I’d developed some expertise in building secure blogs, it’s a service I offer to clients and customers. But, every so often, a client messes with the security plugins and protocols I set up and something bad happens.
There were two such cases in point just in the last week.…
One of the things I’m asked quite often by my customers is if I build any sites with WordPress (I have a few products that are not WordPress-related so my customers wouldn’t necessarily know about my blogs).
Well, this blog is built with WordPress. As are many of my other sites. Though not all my sites are built on WordPress.
For someone not familiar with WordPress, building a site with it can be a daunting prospect. There’s quite a bit to learn. And WordPress doesn’t have any security built in, so those new to it won’t be aware that tweaks and plugins have to be added to make a blog less prone …
2012 saw two major updates to Google’s search engine known as the Panda and Penguin updates. These changed the landscape by introducing new criteria by which websites are ranked. It’s fair to say that while Google intended to scrub thin, spammy sites from its index and boost quality sites to the top of the rankings, the exact opposite happened.
There are plenty of stories about legitimate online businesses (not internet or affiliate marketers) who saw their sites (and earnings) tank overnight as a result of the Google updates (particularly Penguin). Despite the hue and cry that was raised at the time, Google remained uncharacteristically quiet in the aftermath. Perhaps they were too …
Hacking of WordPress blogs is becoming a major problem, as I’ve outlined in my Repairing a Hacked WordPress Blog report.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a big business or a small-time webmaster who gets little of no traffic. If you have a WordPress blog, then you’re ripe to be hacked.
Especially if you give no consideration to securing your site.
And most people don’t…because they think it’s too complicated.
Ok, let me throw some statistics at you…
- Only 15% of the 75 Million+ WordPress Sites run the latest WordPress Version!
- 26 million of 36 million self hosted WordPress sites run little or no security
- Website security is your problem and not your
I’ve had a number of my WordPress blogs get hacked over the last year so I’ve learned the hard way how to repair a hacked blog and how to secure my blogs against future attacks. And now I’ve put what I’ve learned into my new PDF report: Repairing a Hacked WordPress Blog.
The report is only $5. I wish I’d had info like this when I found my blogs were hacked – it would have saved me a huge amount of time. I’ve heard that it can cost $100 to get a pro to clean up your blog though I never used such a service myself.…

Update Nov 20th: PayPal found in my favor and refunded the hosting fees I’d paid to Heroehost. However, Heroehost didn’t restore access to my accounts as a result. There was a brief window when I had access to Internet Marketing Deals and I was able to download an old backup from Heroehost. When I tried to rebuild the site, I found that some of the database tables were corrupted or damaged and couldn’t get the site back up. The blog you’re now reading is now hosted with ServInt.
I had a disaster strike two weekends ago.
I have 17 WordPress websites hosted with Heroehost, which include this blog and Internet Marketing Deals…
