The latest update is I just released my SEO for Writers Course.
Obviously, the target market is content creators, writers and editors. From my research, they are a market underserved in the courses out there. Most of which are only on the technical side of SEO. Since they are writers by very nature not as technical, but yet need help with SEO and how their content can be found on the Internet.
Currently listening to the podcast. Amazing story and hope to learn from you!Since this thread is alive again, I just did an interview on a podcast where some of the questions can be answered around SEO and affiliate marketing.
Interesting approach. I expected to see your face through some part of the course.
Congrats on your big break. Happy for you. I had a question about the website since I want to work on a similar idea for my market.
How much content did you have on InvestorJunkie when you sold it?
I see it mainly has pages which have tutorials, review, comparisons, etc. What would the number of content pieces (~ pages) you had at the time you sold it?
Thank you. I mainly wanted to get an idea of the work required to get there (I realize it's not directly proportional to it).I believe we had around 1300 pages/post at the time of sale.
Though don't think that's a KPI I would measure.
How much were you making by affiliate commissions at that time? Sorry if this has been asked before.
i have one question for you.
When you started your site, how did you manage all your internal links? Can you recommend any tools to keep an overview?
I have a personal finance site with about 250 articles and i only rely on my memories and feeling to set up the internal link structure. I know that is far from good so i would appreciate any tips about that.
Dug into lludwig's course a few days ago and I've been taking notes.
I was a little concerned it would be too entry-level for me based on the sales page, but I'd already taken notes on all his posts on the forum and was eager to pick his brain a bit more without pestering him for free info - jumping onto a paid program of his seemed the appropriate way to do that. Plus figured the Facebook group will end up being great value on its own.
Anyhow, been through first couple lessons: the content is solid and he has a good style of breaking things down. even for things I sort of knew already he always adds a little extra spin that makes it worthwhile. Which makes perfect sense given how entrenched he was in his big project the past few years.
Looking forward to digging into the next videos. Research is up next and definitely imagine he'll have some solid insights to offer there.
No affiliation in case anyone's wondering.
Thanks for the comment!
Interesting, so you think the landing page is targeting beginners, yet the course you consider mid-level?
Obviously, that's a problem in my sales copy then.
Map them in an excel sheet.
Thank you for your fast reply.I didn't do anything special other to manage the linkage.
I DID use tools to monitor any broken links, but I assume that's not what you are asking.
For monitoring links I used:
- Wordpress plugin Redirection
- On MacOS I used Integrity Pro
- Screaming Frog is another one as well.
Let me give you an example:
The first page for a new reader may be: "What are Stocks" that leads to "How to buy stocks" which leads to "how to open a brokerage account" and after that he goes to one of the reviews or comparisons. How do you handle these funnels and organize these funnels with more than 1.000 different articles? Do you know what i mean?
Awesome, thank you!Yes I understand. No I didn't manually map them out in any system.
Though I did have the popular ones tracked in my analytics service Woopra.
Plus I could have a Journey report showing me the popular paths a visitor took to a conversion.
Attached is a sample Journey report for a customer of mine.

Wow, Really cool cite and content. You clearly deserve the success you've reached, and thank you for sharing your experience with us .
If you don't mind my asking, what tech stack do you use to build inverstorjunkie? and can you share any insights from that perspective for the more technically incline.
