Don’t Go Broke With Facebook Ads – Avoid These Mistakes

Facebook advertising can be very lucrative, but can also be very expensive. You have to be well versed in Facebook marketing to optimize your ads for conversions.

Is Guest Blogging Dead?

Way back in 2014, when Matt Cutts was still the head of Google’s web spam team, he practically said that guest blogging was dead. This got a lot of people awfully worried about the future of search engine optimization, concerned that their sites would plummet down the search rankings into the unknown bowels of the dungeon below. And yet, guest blogging has survived. It has just taken on a slightly different form with a slightly different objective in mind. Don’t Hate the Player As you might r...

How to Build Deep Links to Boost Your Website in the SERP’s

The concept of deeplinking is NOT new but the value placed on it has never been more evident. For those of you not aware of the term “deeplinking”, it refers to building links to internal pages on your website to increase the overall value of your entire site. The reason Google is putting so much emphasis on this concept is because when people are trying to rank their website, they would often focus on a single homepage and a few keywords that would decrease the entire value of the search result...

Why Passive Income Is Like the Stock Market

More than ten years ago, in the early days of this blog, John wrote about the concept of trading hours for dollars. If you haven’t read that post, I highly recommend you go back and read it.

The Fundamentals of a Great YouTube Video Description

YouTube isn’t new. I don’t need to tell you that. It was a revolutionary video sharing platform for the masses well before Google acquired it, effectively cannibalizing the now defunct Google Video platform. A big difference that has emerged these last couple of years, however, is the accessibility of high quality video — both as consumers and as creators — for the general public. Anyone can shoot a full HD (or even a 4K) video these days using their smartphones. You can invest in more expensiv...

Making Money 24/7 Is Better Than 9-5

If you watched my last vlog post, you will know that our plans to have lunch at Krave Asian Fusion failed because the restaurant doesn’t open on Mondays for some reason.

The Debate about Revealing Blogging Income

You’ve probably noticed many of the top bloggers reveal blogging income and there is much debate over if this good practice. Recently, I noticed bloggers who are starting out will reveal their income as well, showing the progression through a starting blog to one that gains momentum over the years.
