Reader Questions – Session 2

I get lots of emails about various questions. I reply to everything…well, I reply to as much as I can. I know if one person has a question then a lot of other people do too.

Here are the questions for today:

  1. What theme should I use for a new niche site?
  2. What name should I use when blog commenting as part of link building?
  3. How can I check the backlinks for a competitor’s website?

  • Nice bit of advice. I too swear by the “get it out there and then improve it” over the “make it perfect then release it” approach. The second is far more likely to fail before it even gets started.

    Can’t wait for the PBN tutorial. It just a shame it’s not really that EU-time friendly. It’s going to start at 2am here. Hope there’s a replay if I fall asleep 🙂

    • Hey Goran – Thanks for the comment.

      “get it out there and then improve it”

      Absolutely! I end up making some mistakes along the way but you can usually recover. 🙂 In fact, I had a broken link above…luckily, a kind reader let me know. (You know who you are… Thanks!)

      And, about the PBN course…it’s actually a course that you can check out at your own pace once you join the site.

      • Yeah, I got on your email list for the PBN course. For some reason I thought it was going to be a webinar. Sadly the whole course is too rich for me at the moment. But good luck with it 🙂

    Nice points. You’re right about not spending time on the theme since there are a lot more other steps to do. I also like your thought on using since keywords almost always scream spam.

    Also, I read one of your earlier posts about selling on Empire Flippers. I was thinking of selling a couple of sites through them, but in one of the sites I used an alias and not my real name, email. etc.. Will that fail during their vetted process?

    One final question about your special offer on the the sidebar.

    Am I right that we get 1 link on your PBN for ordering on either Rank Source or Lightning Rank?

    And, 3 links if you order from both?

    Also, in the offer you mentioned for the 5 post package. Does this mean that the 10 post package (pro package) of Rank Source does not qualify?

    Whew, sorry for the barrage of questions.

    • Hi Larry, Thanks for the questions!

      You should be fine to sell your site with Empire Flippers. You do need to use your real name for the application but using a persona on the site you are selling is just fine.

      Am I right that we get 1 link on your PBN for ordering on either Rank Source or Lightning Rank?

      Yes.

      And, 3 links if you order from both?
      That’s right.

      Also, in the offer you mentioned for the 5 post package. Does this mean that the 10 post package (pro package) of Rank Source does not qualify?

      I didn’t consider that so great question. I can do that for you. Send me an email and we can work it out for 3 links.
