Ninja Report: How To Start Your Own SEO Business & Make Hundreds (If Not Thousands!) Of Dollars The First Month

[Disclaimer Time!

Before you start reading this report, a quick disclaimer: I have to say this. Just because this has worked for me doesn’t mean it will earn you as much as I have. I can only share with you my personal experience and that’s what I am choosing to do here. In fact, I didn’t not break a grand the first month but I did make around $800. Read the details. All will be unveiled in time).

Alrighty then?

Okay, also, my main goal with this report was not the bells and whistles… such as design and bullshit. It was to get it out. Kapeesh? Kapeesh!

Lastly, this is a very candid report. Super personal. Proof is more towards the end, you’ll see].

Ummm, fair warning: this report is over 4000 words long sooo, why don’t you go grab a mugga-hot-coffee first, yeah? In fact, bring me back one as well…. and then pick this up and digest it in chunks πŸ˜€ (Okay, let’s stop playing, plunge away).

Now that you are done with that… let me be clear: I created this report, from the bottom of my soft heart, because guess what? It’s my birthday. And I believe in karma. Since I have “figured out” the basics of how to earn money from offering SEO services, I thought I would pay it forward by sharing this information with whoever the hell is interested. All I ask for hours put into this work and sharing it with you, for free, is that you “like” or “share” it. But of course, read every word first and see if it is worthy of a share or a like! By all means. But finally, let me shove you towards the report:

Lookie here you! It’s no secret that people all around the world, including fellow Americans (myself not being an exception!) have financially struggled in the last few years. I remember when I graduated in 2007 with stars in my eyes, a BS degree in Computer Science, with so much potential laying ahead of me. I’m sure you know the feeling…

Then, starting my new job as a programmer for the local school district… and then fucking 2008 and watching the asshole news all over indicating an economy so much in trouble, that it jolted our generation. Let’s take this part seriously.

What doesn’t get thrown at Millennials? We get told we are the entitled, lazy generation. No sir, I would say we are the smarter generation, who want to leverage everything at our disposal for a better life. But, let me not go off on a tangent here… let’s reel it back in.

Hi! My name is Moon (after reading this, go poke around on my site) and the last few years, without holding back, have been shitty. You see, no body prepared me for the real world: not my parents, not school, not classes, nor my professors (but hell, God bless them all. They did their best).

All I knew was that I would get a job with my degree that would pay me well and I would run into exciting opportunities and climb this God damn ladder into a world where Unicorns shit money on my face and I keep depositing thousands of dollars into my account, left and right. Just live that disgustingly good, rich, debaucherous life…

Someone, cue Jay-Z’s “Big Pimpin'”…

Yeah, okay, so let’s fast forward a bit. Got a decent job. I hold nothing against folks who have to support families and perhaps can’t take risks like I did. I get it. No one likes the idea of depending on others or becoming homeless. Life isn’t fair for most of us.

This job that I found, that seemed magical Unicorn rainbow farts at first, turned out to be nothing but human-like sharts to my face. I realized that I would spend my days watching the clock tick slower than the Friday that was supposed to come a lot faster. I also realized there was no damn ladder to climb. I could go into so many details here but let’s just say: bureaucracy can go suck a horse off.

(If you can’t tell, I have a language problem but please stick with me here… I look polite but once the filter is removed, it’s onnnnnn, MoFos~!)

Anyway, in those days, I discovered all about making money online and “SEO” and “ranking websites”. Since 2008, this has become an obsession, peaking right about… *tick tock* NOW! I’m like that old geyser who has stuck her card in two different slot machines, waiting for her pay-off while sucking on an old, used cigarette butt. (Or is that your grandma? HA!)

I launched websites and I failed and then I succeeded. Then it all really, really sucked when Google threw updates around 2012. Fast forward to then. I had moved to California by that time and decided to start offering freelancing SEO services.

After my sites tanked, I was down for a bit. I was busy offering freelancing services to pay my bills. I was still pissed… but it bothered me. I liked… no, I loved having my own sites ranking and affiliate checks coming in. I had a taste of greatness.

SO, the next thing I wanted to do was stabilize my freelancing services. The next couple of years were burnt up in frustration and personal struggles… paying my bills but not really putting myself out there. Just getting by is never fun. Living paycheck to paycheck isn’t a good feeling. Waiting for disasters to strike means living every minute full of anxiety and fear. Sound familiar? I am convinced that this is most of us.

Back to offering services. After all, when you offer a product or service, newsflash: you’re running a business. If you don’t treat it as such, it’s a damn hobby, SON! You need to be PROUD of what you do! (A valuable lesson that took me years to grow into!!!) You can’t dedicate two hours to it on Monday, one on Tuesday, then get back to your client on Sunday. You need to be consistent to build a strong reputation!

And now, let’s fast forward to 7 months ago. I hit another wall. I was doing part-time freelancing and also working part-time for an organization teaching children coding principals. While that job opened my eyes to what I had to offer has a human, I was having a hard time juggling my… work schedule. I felt like a chicken with its head cut off.

I wanted the same thing you do: a lifestyle that allows me to enjoy life while earning the money I want, doing work I love! Because, for me, it’s not about the $$ itself, but rather the choices it can afford me. We all want to help ourselves, our families and friends, travel… whatever it is! Money allows us to do that, right? So, let’s not fuck around: money is a motivation for me. It is for you too. And it’s okay to admit that!

I am sick of people telling us that being greedy isn’t a good thing. What if we are not greedy enough? By greedy, I don’t mean take food or money from the mouth of the hungry and the needy.

By greedy, I mean aim so fucking high, that you are greedy with your goals, with your intent in helping yourself and others.

But forget all of that, that damn wall… The funding didn’t come through for the organization which meant we were screwed and no more part-time income.

So, late last year, I started experimenting with my own site with a seriously ridiculous focus. I had started an Amazon affiliate site over a year ago from then. This time, I vowed to myself that I wouldn’t rely on anyone else but myself for income.

How exactly would I earn my own income?

Two parts: Start my own SEO service based business and rank my own sites that earn an affiliate income (and sell them, if that makes sense).

This time, I would figure out how to run my own business, how to acquire my own clients, no matter what. The last time I ran into such a resolve was when I needed to lose weight. Not only did I lose the weight but now I have a goal to become a very good athlete within the community. I have no qualms that I am about to do the same with my own business, this very site, what you are about to get here.

Stick around and I will explain to you how I literally went from $0 to $800 to breaking a grand… within 2-3 months of offering these services. I literally did it with no start-up money… at all. But please, if you don’t read this whole report with an open mind, you are doing yourself a disservice. You can literally take what I did and apply it right away. Now, don’t get me wrong: plenty of things have gone wrong but there is only ONE major difference in my attitude: I have embraced the resolve that I will be successful… no matter what. That’s it! If problems come up, I will figure out solutions. That’s all that separates successful people from unsuccessful ones.

I don’t care if I’m on my knees with my last dollar, scraped and bruised, I will get up one more fucking time, look myself in the mirror, figure out how to best it to generate a few hundred more and then, a few thousand more. Because you know what? It’s not about the budget, it’s how well you can sell! This is about who you are. Fuck the dollar. It’s what you can sell, fool!

I also know that if millennials in the US have encountered a few hard years (much harder than me), then worldwide, I know how hard times must have gotten for you (please share this in the comments below, I love connecting with people). Some of you may live in third world countries. Some of you probably would love to live in the US on the poverty line. I have lived overseas and I know what life and death looks like… so here, I want to share a few valuable lessons with you while sharing how to start a freelancing SEO business with consistent growth!

Before I proceed, if you are looking for a quick get-rich scheme, you’re not going to find it here. Truth is, I’ve been bustin’ my ass for 8-10 hours a day, for majority of the week with short exceptions. Even then, I have to roll with the punches. But I see the road ahead, paved & shit, and I have a clear vision of what I am trying to accomplish, so stick with me, right here, and mimic my process and do it intelligently.

Here we go πŸ™‚

What Do You Have To Offer?

Let’s define business in the most cut & dry way possible: you have to sell something that people want or need. You sell something and get money in return for the product or service you provided to another person. Simple shit, right?

But it turns out to be much trickier than that especially when you are in the SEO domain. No offense to anyone, but it’s hard if you are in the US selling SEO services and keep getting passed up because other SEOs can sell similar services for much cheaper. It’s a blessing and a curse, lulz…

So, what can YOU do?

Let’s think about it this way. There are all kinds of people in the world. All these people have various comfort levels and various budgets, right? You will have folks who love shopping at the farmer’s market and cooking their own meals, folks who love eating at branded restaurants such as The Cheesecake Factory or Applebee’s, and you also have people who may love eating at top notch restaurants only.

What you need to know is that there are different types of consumers. You may have an easier time with one type of consumer than another (be patient, the point will be made).

Now, each type of consumer here… has a budget. Folks who don’t earn a lot usually end up eating out at pizza chains or lower end family chain restaurants (again, no offense intended, I love all types of restaurants and foods!) Those with incredible earnings probably stick to hiring personal chefs and visiting high end restaurants and don’t bat an eye at their bills.

Apply a similar logic to the world of SEO. You can sell your services to other SEOs or to local businesses or even businesses nationwide. At first, this can seem extremely overwhelming. (Editor’s Note: Keep in mind this can apply to any business whether it’s website design or online marketing or anything else!)

I’m well versed with all kinds of SEO, including local and have done it for local businesses. However, I moved away from that and am finding where I am right now to be my strength. As of now, I am offering my services to other SEOs who are either trying to rank their own websites or their client’s sites.

Now, here is the thing. Here is what is working for me and how I got to a point where I can pay my bills and am in the space of growing and ranking my own website once again, hehehe (an investment property that I plan on selling once it starts generating that moolah. If you’re interested in that journey, make sure to subscribe, because the day I hit the Bing Bang, you’re damn right I’m going to be screaming from the top of my lungs about it, ha!)

So, the ultimate question: how did I get to this point? The point of paying all my bills by myself with no one else’s help?

By putting myself on the line.

Put Yourself Out There!

I started Moon Hussain Ninja over a year ago. At the time, I only knew that I wouldn’t quit. I knew what I wanted to be known for. I knew what my strengths were… still are.

Hands down the first thing visitors/readers write me about? It’s my writing, duh. They tell me I’m a breath of fresh air. What does that mean?

With a name like Moon and my writing style, I am fucking memorable, bitches!

[Editor’s Note: Okay, so that sounds cocky, eh? I’m just being playful, I promise πŸ™‚ ]

Even on my personal FB page, I decided to share my personal struggles years ago, and now, people love to connect with me. I never understood it (and I’m starting to now, sort of) when people tell me that I am good with my words.

I decided I would share my own journey with as much honesty and integrity I could deliver. I also knew I wanted to learn from other internet marketers (which is presented to you in interview format all around this website including an interview with Diggy Dirk & Karan Labra). That’s how I have made connections with internet marketers over the years (I’ve also been long time readers of their blogs and experiments! That’s the reason they probably didn’t mind being interviewed and have their stories presented on Moon Hussain Ninja). This sort of stuff always comes back full circle.

However, Moon Hussain Ninja is one piece of the puzzle. I still didn’t know what I was doing. By chance, 8-9 months ago, I started experimenting with white hat/grey hat link building methods. These web 2.0 properties were cheap to acquire. I learned that I could enhance rankings using web 2.0s accounts with some good page authority behind them. However, the value for my clients is not in only the properties (these contain some decent juice!) The value is in the manual work I do. For instance, I log into each web 2.0 property from behind a proxy, carefully, and type up the posts… no spun junk, all manual.

See how it’s white and grey hat mixed up?

Don’t get me wrong: black hat has its place but know what you are getting into.

Since I received excellent results from web 2.0 links, I started offering packages around web 2.0s. Surprisingly, the first month, I made a little over $800. For someone with not enough of a following, this was a miracle.

I also got shit from a couple of people telling me I was charging “too much” for web 2.0 accounts. Uhhh, fuck y’all haha. Joke. My point is, there are people who will see the value in what you are offering and some that won’t. You have to learn to keep moving and not be afraid of the people who have nothing better to do. Had I listened to those punks, I wouldn’t be paying my bills right now and moving on upwards.

Yes, there it is. Web 2.0s require nothing but time and patience. Figure something out. Offer it. Charge for it reasonably. Get a few reviews and testimonials. Hook your clients up! And keep building from there…

At this point in the game, do NOT get hung up on how much your bottom line is. You will need to test price points. Say you offer 5 links for $20. Maybe you wanted to charge more. Maybe it’s not worth your time to type up 5 300-word articles to post on PA 35+ accounts. Who cares? Take the first few gigs, put some grind and sweat in, get a review or two, and increase your price point next time. Let’s say it took you two hours to come up with those 5 short posts. Maybe 1 hour to post. (I realize this is ridiculously slow but let’s entertain this idea). 20/3 = $6.67. Poo-poo. That’s not a lot at all. That’s poo cheap.

So now you can do three things: charge higher for quality and on properties with solid PA AND become faster at these tasks… or higher someone to do the writing. Let’s say you’ve learned to do this in 2 hours now and you are charging 5 links for $25. $12.50 per hour earned.

This won’t make your rich, sure. But you will see: you will find price points and advantages that will enable you to earn more. But that’s a problem for another time. You just need to get started with an offer!

But Moon! Who The Fuck Did You Sell To?

Luckily, these days, there are plenty of free resources you can use. Let’s discuss a few right here:

  • Fiverr: You’re not going to earn shitloads of money here but it’s an option. Typically services are sold for Five bucks and a $1 of it goes to Fiverr itself. $4 isn’t much at all but it’s a place to get started with the right offer and accumulate some reviews! Plus, you can offer upgraded packages which I’ve been experimenting with πŸ˜‰ You can also list services for way over $5 right off the bat, but obviously, make sure you are playing with various price points.
  • SEO Clerks: Another platform that can be a bit too hype-y for my taste but I’ve experimented with various price points here, starting with $10 all the way to $99. I have found a few clients by luck and chance here!
  • Market.SourceWave: Created by Alex Becker, this is another online spot where you can sell your SEO services. I just got started with this so I can’t give a personal testimonial but I have bought a couple services from here. Bring your A-Game and don’t be shy!
  • Warrior Forum & Black Hat World: The first one seems too full of hype for me so I have stayed away from that option. I’m considering BHW at the moment. Be forewarned: there is a fee or “donation” to become a seller on both; I want to guess around $97. I can tell you, there are sellers absolutely killing it on both platforms and I can tell you, BHW is next for me once I tweak my services a bit and hit that smooth, magical formula.
  • Facebook Groups: This shit is marvelous and has been my main bread and butter. Go join some SEO discussion and service groups. Contribute to the group with your SEO knowledge, lay some smack down, and start selling your services here. This, right here, is responsible for 90% of my income. Why? Because you are in control of what you present, you can private message potential clients. The first month I started off with Tumblr services and banked around $800. This was the most natural and easiest way I have made money.

Okay, We Are Just Scratching The Surface Here!

Chances are, most of you are just getting started in SEO or what not. Here’s the thing: I am not going to lie to you. I have been spending 8-10 hours, 5-6x a week (or more). For instance, I was training a writer and he decided to bail out on me. Now I have about 10 orders behind which really fucks me up. I hate not delivering these orders on time because I want my clients to have an all-around great experience with my products and services. I want them to come to me week after week, month after month, and spend their SEO budget with me instead of someone else. That’s not me being cocky: that’s me knowing the value I can deliver for their hard earned money.

But, for this fault that was out of my hands, I will end up offering them a 5% discount on any future services, even specials and promotions (hey, birthday month, woot woot!), yes, even if it’s a temporary loss.

I’m sorry but there is competition all around. How do you get attention? Bark! Scream! Create tons of content. I am in the middle of testing Facebook Ads on a super small budget. I am experimenting with page likes, opt-in ads, boosting posts; I am promoting them to various audiences (well, relating to SEO) and in different countries.

I haven’t had anything go viral, per se, (well, it would be nice to see this report go viral πŸ˜‰ ), but I have gained so many FB page likes, post likes, and more. A lot of people will say, “what does that do for you, Moon? Not a fucking thing!”

“Bro”, I’d say, “shut your stupid shit little mouth. Of course it helps.” Here’s how: social fucking proof. That shit ain’t no joke. Not only that, but more exposure. If I produce good content and lots of it, chances are, it’s about to get shared and liked, even if I have to give it push using FB or Youtube ads.

Look, this isn’t magic. How did you find me? How did you find this report? I can’t sit here and lie to you and say, “oh hey, I’m rolling in dough MoFos” but the truth is, after years of trying, I am finally getting something right. I never wanted to be the “make money online by selling info on how to make money online”.

Truth is, it feels good to “get it right”, do work that you enjoy, and connect with good people who want the same thing as you do. Simple as that for me. That’s the main reason I decided to create and share this report… if it helps even one person, that will put a smile on my face. (Let’s be for fucking real: I’m an online marketer, haha, my secondary reason is obviously to get my name out there. If I didn’t tell you that, you’d have a damn fine reason not to trust me. Take things at face value!)

Show UP! I Promise…

It will pay off. Trust me, when you stay in the scene you want to become an authority in, when you chime in just to chime in, consistently, over and over, opportunities will pop up. I promise. It has happened numerous times with me. A lot haven’t worked out but one in particular has and I’m thankful for that.

SO many people say it and finally I believe it: Show the fuck up for your own sake!

This is free shit. I have NOTHING to gain from this, except hopefully some readership. Yes, I sell SEO services but I figured out how to do it. If you want to buy from me, cool; if you don’t, that’s fine too. I am of the belief that most people are good people and if I can share knowledge with you that helps you, then good. Here it is. People love my style, my straight-forwardsness, and those who like what I have to order, keep ordering. If all you want is free info, well here it is.

If you wanted me to say you’re about to earn your first grand online without any issues or even $200 without trials and tribulations, yeah, it ain’t gonna happen Kid. Truth is, we all gotta pay the price for success. We gotta learn to test various services, work on the kinks behind the scenes, test different price points, hire people. Test ads. Create content. It can feel crazy sometimes. But yeah, you do have to build your reputation.

You have to stop being a damn pussy!

Make sure you have something of killer value and something people want to buy from you!

Sometimes, it feels like you are working for minimum wage, and maybe you are, but trust me, you can only go up from here.

Here’s how I have built my growing business:

Right now, I’m in the midst of creating 34 videos for my 34th birthday, which is in June πŸ™‚ If you found this report helpful, here is what will be released IN JUNE:

* Videos about struggles I’ve encountered with my online business and how you can avoid them
* Super easy and cheap method to start making money online
* Ranking your website from nowhere to page 1 of Google
* Thinking on giving behind-the-scenes videos on how I’m building my business
* This summer, another report to see how far along with SEO business has come (want to triple my income!!!)

What you should know is that you are watching me build all of this from the ground floor… up. Most people only show the successful picture, making you think their journey was all flowers and no thorns nor blood. That’s just bullshit.

Let’s Review Quickly… I Know You’re Tired, Lil Boo

  • Everyone around you is struggling; Only you can help yourself!
  • Put yourself on the line!
  • Don’t be afraid; put an offer out!
  • When dealing with prospective clients, don’t be afraid to follow-up!
  • Be confident in what you have to offer!
  • If you’re not confident, why should someone else buy your product or service?!
  • Don’t be afraid of asking for money, Silly B****! Bitch better have yo Money, like Rihanna says!
  • Accumulate testimonials and reviews!
  • View problems as fun puzzles; they are a blessing of running a business πŸ™‚
  • Stop thinking ahead; start now!
  • The only reason you’re not “successful” is because you didn’t do what the successful girl or guy did!
  • Kill that shit!
  • Make your clients love you, DUH! They are helping you pay your bills, be grateful you Punk!

In Conclusion…

I have learned the hard way: no one gives a SHIT about your struggles. Meaning people have their own struggles to deal with, so most of them can NOT help you. Even if they wanted to, they have no means with which to help you…!

Right? Think about it. Perhaps you want to help your family or friends. But you don’t have it right now. So, the first thing you want to do is commit to your own success.

Without that, you’re not gonna be shit, Bruh.

It is UP TO YOU to wake up every morning, listen to something motivational (a very important habit as of late, and a mandatory one at this point!!!), create content, answer ?s wherever you’re marketing and advertising, fulfill orders (or hire and manage people).

No one else is gonna do it for you, Folks!

And guess what? I am tired of struggling too. So here I am, with my blog, with new content, with a service based business I’m building with my sweat and (literally) tears (brick by brick), creating videos (which makes me uncomfortable but I know it helps when people can see the person behind the computer); I’m willing to do whatever the hell it takes.

I’m going to take whatever I think it takes and 10X it, Grant Cordone style, baby.

Question is, will you?

Do Tumblr Links Work? How About Those Weebly & Pinterest Links?

[Note: This article has been updated to include more graphical data πŸ˜› ]

About ten days ago, I published Using Tumblr Links For Ultimate Rankings. Since then, I have received feedback from a few more clients who have seen their rankings shift in the positive direction.

A few of my keyphrases have shifted from pages 3 to pages 1 & 2 and some that were never in the top 100 have jumped in top 100.

You’ll see quite a few examples below but let me start with one:

bing_rank
[Edit: This is for 2500k searched term, Bing. Lots of dancing happening and finally at #5 :Pγ€€ It’s been jumping pages 2-4 in the last 3 months and now sticking Tumblr and Blogspot links to it (with PA).]

All from what? A few PBN links, but those were reserved for the main keyphrase only. As I’ve explained before, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and Weebly all seem to play an important role in sending those social signals that Google has come to love… but it can’t be denied that Tumblr links are especially delicious right now.

Why Do These Links Matter?

Because such links indicate viral content. Content that has taken off. Content that isn’t just good, but great. And search engines want to return results that are relevant (hence, great!)

As an SEO, it is my job to either:
A) Create viral content and give it the best chance to BE VIRAL OR
B) Mimic the strategy behind content that’s gone viral πŸ˜€

(We could go with either choice, depending on your budget, duh!)

And that’s what I’ve been doing. That’s what I offer to my clients too. You’ll see, in just a minute. As of now, way more Tumblr links have been added (PA 31+), Pinterest accounts are being readied, one Blogspot link I’m getting ready to restore, and a Weebly link as well. All of these links are hitting my one main site. I take care in keyphrase variation, targeting my main one, but also creating naked URLs, brand texts, and links to my inner pages as well.

I’ve become very comfortable creating these links on the daily. Pinterest accounts are image heavy, so they take some organization, but these two, by far are my favourites. Still, creating these in a drip feed manner is easy enough to do, not too time consuming, and the pay-off has been sweet.

I make it a point not to ping all of my posts. Some clients choose to. For my personal projects, I’ve chosen to submit half of them to Link Centaur for indexation purposes.

Now, here are some of the questions I receive from folks:

  • What is the trust flow?
  • How many backlinks exist for each Tumblr account?
  • Can you do 4 links for $10?

Kindly, I will respond in generalities and specifics.

While I understand why you’re asking for Trust Flow, my current Tumblrs were once deleted and now re-registered and setup to go once again. The day I raise a few of my own accounts with a decent Trust Flow, I won’t be selling those links as cheap as I sell these. Consider that these are manual posts done by Yours Truly and so far, 99% client satisfaction. (I could’ve lied and said 100% and you’d never have known the truth, haha). One link on that account would be $25 at the very least… not 4-10 as I had been offering!

Backlinks… since these are deleted and re-registered Tumblrs, most backlinks are gone, finito. “But, Moon, won’t that hurt your sites in the long run?” Uh, if you’re ballin’ in the SEO World, Kid, there are no guaranteed long runs NOTHIN’. That’s the harsh truth. If you do good overall backlinking, you’re not gonna get hit hard, if at all. My rankings are climbing and I’m about to hit this shit, hard.

Every link has value and serves its purpose. If you can afford $500 of one type of link on some of the biggest sites your niche has to offer and it’s worth it to YOU, then by all means, go for it. These links are showing me some DAMN GOOD results which is why I’m offering these services in turn to my own clients. If I could offer guarantees (which other marketers outright lie about!), heck, I’d be rollin’ in it right now πŸ˜‰ (Remember! If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!)

Okay, so not to sound condescending, but your $10 is not worth my time. That’s why I have packages. If you can’t test a $25 package, maybe you shouldn’t be in the SEO game. OR! Stick to Fiverr. I’m not knockin’ you NOR Fiverr. Been there, done that. I have found a couple of good providers there, as well as a couple other places. You just gotta know your shit, Kid.

So, let’s collectively take a look at a few of the rankings, from my own site that is making slow but steady (& lovely!) progress to client rankings, which I freakin’ looove.

Here we gooo πŸ˜›

15000 searches, less than handful of Tumblr links:
15000_searches

“Do these Tumblrs have backlinks?” Oh, I’m sorry, I can’t hear you over the SUCCESSFUL LEAP IN RANKINGS πŸ˜€
results_img_2

“What is the TF of these accounts?” Shhh…..:
results_img_3

“But what about those redirects?!” It’s damn well lookin’ good to me:
results_img_4

Wanna find out more? Well, sign up! This is where I announce PBN sites and my Tumblr & Blogspot packages >:) :



More stuff that clients reported back. No more questions, because these little graphs are too pretty. Thank you!
client_jump_in_rankings_ha

Another SEO conducted his own Tumblr case study to find a sweet jump in rankings:
roy_2

This is all before my second set of Tumblr links are picked up by the search engines, plus a handful of Pinterests. As I’ve mentioned before, the PBN links only target one primary keyphrase, not the others.

I could paste another 10 images but what good will that do for ya? Are you ready to experiment? I will be posting live results on the Moon Hussain Ninja FB page here, if ye’d like to follow! Just like acquiring expired domains, there’s a bit of art to acquiring Tumblrs. By all means, if you’ve got the moolah, get some nice placements on some nice Tumblrs. My Tumblrs have pretty good Page Authority (PA) and now I’m building and selling equally decent Pinterest links.

Here are some benefits my clients have experienced from my Tumblr, Blogspot, and PBN services (I write the posts and articles manually, myself):

880 searches on Google. Nothing huge, but certainly a fun one to track since only Tumblrs were appointed to this page πŸ˜›

Seems to take a few weeks to catch on, but when they do, hell yes!

Like I mentioned before, just think: what kind of links would be coming in to your site if content from it went viral? Go & build those links or get them built! πŸ˜›

Using Tumblr Links For Ultimate Rankings

Don’t know what Tumblr is? Well, Bro, hello to mid-to-late 2015 search engine optimization! “So, Moon, if it’s so 2015, why are you telling me about it now?”

Because. Moon was ignorant and let me tell you, Bro: I’ve been selling Tumblr packages for months now after testing them with my own keyphrases, long-tail and all, on my own projects… with pretty good results!

This is no joke. Of course, in the world of SEO, nothing is cut and dry. You can’t just rely on one strategy for long term success. You always have to experiment. I have been playing with PBNs as well with positive results (still waiting for the big shove upwards) and now mixing in a few Weeblys, Tumblrs, and soon, social signals from Facebook and Twitter (but more on that later).

Let’s start with:

What’s Tumblr, Bro?

Okay, so if you’re social media savvy, it won’t take long until you understand how Tumblr works. Go ahead, open up an account and mess around. Now, let me go ahead and be specific here: this post is not about how to build up one or two Tumblr accounts for brand presence; rather, it’s about using the power of multiple Tumblr accounts to imitate the “viral content effect” and to give your site a shove up in search engine rankings.

In essence, Tumblr is a fun little “social” platform that allows you to share your own posts, other people’s link and videos, like their content, and to re-post or “reblog” them in an extremely easy way. It’s literally a matter of click, click, reblog, share, click… to your heart’s content.

So, how can we, as SEOs, use Tumblr to our advantage?

How Can I Use Tumblr For SEO Purposes?

Let’s break things down a bit. Multiple sources have now quoted that social signals more than ever, play a significant role in increasing rankings.

Think about it: when a piece of content goes viral, that URL/content/link gets shared on all sorts of sites such as news related sites, Facebook likes and shares, Twitter shares, and lastly, Tumblr shares.

Right? This makes sense.

First thing I do is check Facebook. Any major news or anything in the new feed that I connect with, I tend “like” or “share”. When I check Tumblr, same thing with viral content. It’ll have tons or hundreds or thousands of notes!

So, as an SEO, what does this mean? This means we have to imitate the “viral strategy”. What can we do? Create backlinks on PBNs, get tons of Tumblr shares going, throw some FB shares in there for a healthy dose, and a straight up mix of web 2.0s alongside social bookmarking.

Whoa. Hold on there now. Remember, that’s the huge, complete picture and, today, it’s all about them Tumblrs, Bros!

In a recent FB forum, (by the way, join these SEO forums, they are extremely informative!), a member showed his own ranking improvement just by using 40 Tumblrs and removing any doubts link juice from the redirect changes that Tumblr has recently made. In other words: badass!

Okay, that’s the affect of 40 Tumblr shares from 40 different accounts. Let me reiterate that:

THAT’S ONLY 40 TUMBLR LINKS!!!

Can you imagine what a hundred or two hundred Tumblr shares could do for your content?

How Many Tumblr Links Do I Really Need?

If you have to ask that question, you’re not a true SEO maestro yet. The answer is, no one fucking knows! You gotta experiment, Bro!

I started off with 20 accounts, dripping them over a week or so. Then I added another 20 and another 20. Tomorrow and Friday, I will stop drip feeding and target an inner page with 50ish Tumblr links, targeting long-tail variations of a product.

If you have a long tail, experiment with a good 30-50 Tumblr links. If you are afraid, drip feed them over a few days or a week. Whatever.

It will all depend on the competitiveness of your keyphrase. You may or may not experience miracles. Remember, this is the world of SEO and sometimes, a small number is enough, sometimes you need tons more, and sometimes, well, ya gotta mix ‘n match that shizzles. Remember that overall picture, Bro.

Results can be experienced anywhere from a couple of weeks to six weeks later (so far).

Here is what a client had to say:

client_links

In the above case, he happened to purchase PBN links as well as a few sets of Tumblrs from me. It is really cool seeing shifts in the right direction and knowing my properties are helping him move up the search engine… ahem, Google πŸ˜‰

Neat!

This makes me feel good, knowing that my PBN links and Tumblrs are paying off for clients.

Here are a couple of other keyphrases I have been tracking:

tumblr_rankings

This keyphrase has been sitting on page 2 for a while. Keeps dropping to page 3. This is the closest it has gotten to page 1. I am getting ready to shove more Tumblr, Weebly, and possibly Pinterest links at it.

I try to be careful. For every 20 links, I’ll create about 8 targeting my main keyphrase, 5 brand ones, 5 inner and main URL links, 2 long tail keyphrases.

Don’t over complicate things. You can play it a bit safer or be a bit riskier. Ah, as SEOs, we are always at risk, right? Here is the progress of another keyphrase:

tumblr_rankings_2

It probably settled into #25. But check it out… on 2/11, the ranking sits around #52; then all of a sudden, a nice jump on 2/26 to #26.

This one, I didn’t even create too many Tumblr links to! I believe it was more like 7. There are at least a ton more yet it’s past midnight on a Friday while I sit here and finish this article.

I have just placed links on Tumblr accounts with PA of 31-36; I’m pretty confident that I will continue to see a rise in rankings (I’ll report within the month). It’s a matter of dripping 3-5 links a day for a couple of weeks. Nice and easy. This time around, I’ll be adding a couple of Weebly links, one Pinterest, and perhaps a blogspot link (PA ~27).

Time to kick it up a notch.

The main concern seems to be those of re-directs. What I’m showcasing here has been tracked over the last month and you can see the results from the redirects yourself! Furthermore, Frank from Online Dimes has published this article: Did Tumblr Just Kill Our Backlink Juice? (Case Study) where he conducts his own fine little case study.

Yep, they still work.

Another concern seems to be what type of links these Tumblrs have & so on. Sure, you can place your links on Tumblrs that have every stat you’d ever want… as long as you have the budget.

If you don’t, you have to settle for other stats. Maybe my Tumblrs aren’t as “decked out” but go back to the first graph. It’s pushing my stubborn page 2 and 3 keyphrases to tip of page 1. I couldn’t be more grateful that I can accomplish such good results (hell, this is with 20-30 links) for a little bit of time and $$.

Like I said, next, I’m getting ready for the next shove….

See you on the other side, Bros!
