Gotta Love Quick Flips

Making well over a $100 per hour has never been easier while flipping websites:

I’m going to refrain from adding 10-20 more proof pictures, otherwise this would just look like a sleazy eBook product minus the “real” reviews from satisfied customers.

The process if pretty simple: Buy a website for $100-$300, then sell the same website for $500-$1,000 at another platform.  However, this method is easier said then done, and if you don’t know what you’re doing you can end up with a number of websites and a lot of wasted time.  Websites that I try to buy have the following specifications:

  • Established website with authority and trust
  • Age of 1+ year – the older the better
  • Numerous quality backlinks – the more (diverse) the better
  • Not deindexed in search engines
  • Little maintenance required
  • Revenue: $0+ / month
  • Traffic: 0+ / month

Effective Resource Management in SERPs

•February 6, 2010 • Leave a Comment

If you can attain the #1 ranking for a (relatively) competitive search term, you can drive a lot of targeted traffic to your website.  Winning the battle for the #1 ranking can exponentially increase your traffic.  Too many people are targeting a range of search terms that is simply too wide.  If you were trying to become a professional athlete, you would not spend time training for every possible sport.  You would pick the sport that has the most potential and run with it.  I’m not saying that you should focus all of your link building efforts on a single term, but shifting the focus of your link building campaigns and resources to your money keyword is an intelligent choice.

Twitter – “What is it good for. Absolutely nothing.”

•February 1, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Twitter is trash and nothing more than a time sink.  You might as well become a WOW addict.  Twitter takes the concept of Facebook status updates to a new level of pointlessness; it is about as useless as a screen door on a submarine.  Some common tweets I see are:

  • Just got out of the shower.
  • Is headed off to an exciting day in NYC!!@
  • Got stuck in traffic. Sad face.
  • Hey babie, check me out…i just uploaded some pics at ***.com
  • Victory is ours! (Reference to Ashton Kutcher’s race to 1,000,000 followers)

I could care less about all of those things and so should all of you.

Jump Start With Yahoo Answers

Yahoo Answers is a surprisingly useful resource to give a new or existing website a shot of adrenaline.  The community is full of legitimate people, who actually answer questions, and spammers, who are abusing it for traffic and backlinks.  Yahoo does a decent job suspending (aka banning) the accounts of these spammers, but it really is a futile effort as the spammers can just make new accounts.  Another method of deterring spamming is that links on Yahoo Answers appear clickable only if the user posting is level 2 or above.  On the plus side, this banning keeps Yahoo Answers from becoming a complete cesspool.  You can choose to be a full out spammer, borderline spammer, or a more genuine user.  All will have their respective pros and cons.
