.edu links

They are also one-way and free! Yes, you heard that right. Using the technique presented in seoblackhat, you can get free links from authority sites.

Let’s say I want to exploit some search scripts in .edu sites. In order to find them I search for “allinurl: search edu” in Google. The first page doesn’t give us any good sites except the last one onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/search.html. Ok, we got a PR7 .edu site. I put some html in the author input form and press search. It’s exploitable and we get a live link back.

Hiding content with CSS

Hiding content and stuffing keywords is an oldschool tecnique that has pretty much become obsolete. Search engines are getting smarter… and we find new tricks to game them. Remember the WordPress fiasco? They hid links to thousands of articles with CSS and they got busted. Moral is don’t be too blackhat with very popular sites.

If you don’t know a thing about CSS, start reading first.

The Rich Jerk review

rich jerk

I bought the Rich Jerk book about a week ago. What initially drew me to the book was the sales copy. Additionally, the book is noly around 40 pages so I knew it wouldn’t be like all the similar ebooks on the net, where the writer starts blabbering endlessly and not giving you any actual advice.

The book outlines many different strategies and how to approach them, from ppc marketing to ebay wholesale and investing. Additionally, the book is short and on to the point with no bullshit filler. There’s a chance you will have already heard about some of these, personally I knew already about everything in the book. However, after reading the book I had lots of things to experiment on. So I got down and actually did some work and now only a week after I’m already making some nice extra money. All I can say is I loved the book and it was well worth the money.

Here is another freebie for my readers. It’s an Adsense ebook on how to make a fortune with Google Adsense. If you are a bit experienced I don’t recommend you read it. It has some good info for newbies and should provide a good starting point on how things work.
