It's been a while since I've been here.
Sort of given up on building new sites for now.
Just letting existing sites run, which are earning a little.

Still enjoy keyword research, more for the fun of it.

Just found an interesting one if any one is interested.

"lean mean fat grilling machine" Domain available

Not a great adsense earner, but could do well for the goerge foreman grill and other brands plus recipe books.

Then if you can rank for other relating words such as goerge forman grill. it could be a winner.


Hi All
Just wondering what your opinions/experience of the Yoast local SEO plugin is.

Thinking of using it on my local business site.
Already use the normal Yoast SEO.

I don't know if any of you know of
I listened to a podcast today about fivver. I have to say if you are into marketing you could get some great tips from this.
You may even want to get started on fivver, after listening to this.

One of the most informative interviews I have heard in ages.

For anyone thinking of purchasing ScreenFlow, which is normally $99
if you head on over to you can get it as part of a bundle for $49 which I have just done.

This is the link I went to. Not affiliate.

I have just created a new niche site which at the moment only has 1 post. after 7 hours I am ranked 23rd.

pretty happy with that.

I am taking a bit of a gamble as I used 4 tools to find the keyword, and each tool gave me different results, even though the results come from Google in one way or another.

Also not many advertisers or promotable products.

I will share it when  I have done a bit more work on it.

Just thought I'd share.

Hi all
First of I just want to say what a great community this is.
I have learnt a lot from you guys, so I am hoping you can help me further.

I am using the free news theme on one of my sites.
But when I try to use the featured post widget in my Home middle left & right widget area. My page only displays that featured post at the top of the home page rather than in the middle with my normal post above it.

This is how it should look

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Eddy

I dont know if this has been asked before.

I am interested in knowing if any of you guys have followed or follow any niche site creation courses and what was/is your opinion of them.

I am a member of Forever affiliate course, but have yet to really look at the course properly, but I can tell you there is a ton of info in there and it's really well laid out.

If you haven't seen it yet, here's the controversial Google SEO follow-up post from Glen over at viper chill.

I find Glens post very interesting, especially as they are based on sites ranking quickly.

In response to a post by  +Darran Mansfield  where  his site isn't ranking.
I finished of my response with "Google does weird things sometimes".

That line reminded me of a odd experience I had with a long tail keyword found in the Google keyword tool.

I wrote a post about it a while ago.
I would be great if you could find some time to look at it and tell me what you think.

You can do the same search that I did, and I would love to hear your opinions on this.

Thanks and even more thanks if you can shed any light for me.
