Improve Site Load Ti...

Over the last week or so I’ve been busy working on a new site which I’m planning to put a decent amount of time (and money!) in to. Because of this I spent much more time looking in to how I can improve the site, including page load times. After a bit of research I found 2 simple ways that...

Less than a month ago, Nominet announced that under their current proposal, the oldest domain will get the “right of first refusal” to the .uk extension. For example, if the .co.uk is registered in 2002 and the .org.uk extension is registered in 2004 then that means that the owner of the...

Who’s Your Big...

When you work on sites and depend on them to bring you in some money each and every month, one thing that you need to be aware of is your competitors. To most people your competitor is probably the site that’s ranked 1st for your main keyword, or even the site(s) that are just a couple of...

How Bitcoin Could Im...

Bitcoin has grown so much already in 2013 as you can see on Google Trends. It’s actually quite scary when you see how popular it has got, especially when you take a look at the price increase of it over the last 6 months or so. To give you some sort of an idea, before Christmas you could buy...

My First eBook Mar28

My First eBook

No matter what you think of digital books, it’s obvious that printed books are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Back in August 2012 the Guardian wrote about how kindle eBook sales have overtaken the sales of hardback and paperback books combined. According to them, for every 100...

As you might have noticed over the last few weeks, I started case study which I’ve been updating daily. I’ve been asked by loads of people about the method that I’m using, so I decided that it’s time to share it! Firstly, this method mightn’t be new to some of you since people have...

Aid.co.uk Bought Jan29

Aid.co.uk Bought

Just thought I’d do a quick post about this. A few days ago I noticed that aid.co.uk was dropping. Spent a few hours last night trying to make sure that I was emailing the right people about buying it, and eventually was pretty sure that I found him. This morning, I got a reply saying that...

SEO Case Study Jan26

SEO Case Study

As most of us have found out over the last few months, it’s getting harder and harder to rank well these days unless you’ve built a site around a brand. Because of this, I decided to do a joint venture with someone else to test out a relatively new SEO method a few months ago....

The Disappointing Launch of Ireland.com Jan24

The Disappointing La...

Back in October 2012, the domain Ireland.com was bought for €500,000. At the time some people weren’t too happy that Tourism Ireland (funded by the Irish government) spent so much on a domain, but I actually thought it was quite a good deal considering the potential that it had (For people...

A Book Worth Reading

Note: While this isn’t a post all about SEO, I decided to put it in the SEO category mainly because of the last paragraph or two. Read on to find out what I’m talking about! A while ago, Joe left a comment on one of my blog posts recommending a book called ‘The $100 Startup’ to me. To...

Over the last few weeks I’ve heard loads of people talking about SEO PowerSuite, so I decided to give it a shot. I’ve never really been a fan of SEO tools to be honest, but since I heard so much about SEO PowerSuite I thought that I should at least give it a chance. After all, it’s hard...

Silly Mistake or Cle...

If you own a website (which you more than likely do if you’re reading this!) probably spent a good amount of time trying to think of a way that you can link bait in order to get a nice range of quality links within a short period of time. I know I have any way, and I’m hoping that one day...

I know I really should have wrote about this at the end of September (when the update took place), but I kind of wanted to wait a while just to see whether Google would backtrack on the “minor weather report” that Matt Cutts mentioned on Twitter at the time that this update took...

Getting Accepted To ...

If you’ve ever applied to get accepted with the ePN (eBay Partner Network) then you more than likely know how picky they can be when it comes to what sites they’ll accept. Over the past couple of months I’ve heard of loads of people that have what I’d consider a high quality website...

Choosing a Host

Choosing the right host is really important when it comes to internet marketing. The last thing that you want to happen is to spend hours upon hours making great sites and then realising that your sites are never going to do well since you chose a terrible hosting company to host with. Here...
