Increase Your Site's Speed With 22 Quick Wins

Why We Chose This:

Tung takes this post to another level. The best part about this post is that he's teaching you to do the big things first and the small things afterwards. So you're always seeing incremental improvements along the way. One of my favourite tips were to watch for the size of your social sharing plugins and to utilize a CDN, they're free anyways!

Growing Your Sites Revenue in Multiple Ways

Why We Chose This:

Affiliate sales from Amazon aren't the only way to monetize your site. You can do sponsored posts, ads, software, services, anything. This post gives a broad overview of the many ways you can turn your blog into a money rainmaker. But, my best advice is to stick with mastering one thing first though. If your site focuses on the Amazon associates program, stay focused with that until you've reached your monthly income goal.

Weird Niche Ideas Found on Flippa

Why We Chose This:

Although we don't recommend Flippa and it's the main reason why HPD came to be. People were selling crap all over the place there and getting scammed. Then we came in to provide a worthwhile service with Done-For-You starter sites.In any case, I know that there can be some good ideas exchanged there. Here are 45 sites that were listed on Flippa to show it's possible to build a site on anything.

Diving Deeper in Keyword Search Volume

Why We Chose This:

In case you missed it, 2 weeks ago we came back from the Chiang Mai SEO conference with heads full of ideas + a few key SEO enlightenments. One of those was on Clickstream data and how it differs from Google Keyword Planners data. One of the most interesting and useful facts about Clickstream data is you're able to generate a Click-Through-Rate curve. Not all positions are equal!

  1. I have been experimenting with this “alternatives” keyword.

    I did a Google search on everything that I could find on a subject, rounded up photos, videos, I signed up for all the affiliate programs and created a mega post of several thousand words.

    Unfortunately it is a very low search volume thing, but it brings in traffic for several search terms. Here is the post so that you can check out what I mean:

    I get keywords like “Thrive Themes vs ClickFunnels”, “10 minute funnels vs ClickFunnels”, “ClickFunnels competitors”.

    I also noticed that it is easy to rank for terms like “ alternatives” with my expired domain site. You can rank for search terms including a domain name of your niche.

    1. That’s awesome. Generally people looking for these alternative terms are closer to purchasing or are already customers looking to switch away.
