How 1,000+ Bloggers in More Than 40 Different Niches are Ranking Higher in Google and 10x'ing Their Organic Traffic
Friday, November 15th
Who are obsessively dedicated to putting out amazing content to delight your little corner of the internet but are still day-dreaming of that elusive “Your Mediavine application has been approved!" email.
Who are wishing your Amazon affiliate dashboard was brimming with new sales every morning when you wake up.
I’ve got a question for you…
Did you ever wonder why the Google gods smile down on some bloggers sending them thousands of free visitors every single day allowing them to rack up affiliate sales, email subscribers and instantly get approved for Mediavine even though they just started their blog a few months ago...
… while you're busting your butt every week cranking out valuable content, but can't escape the ghost-town that is page 12 of Google while barely earning enough from your blog to cover last month’s Subscribe & Save order of your little-one’s box of Pampers?
Here's what you need to know about ranking high in Google in 2019 (and beyond) without feeling like you’re drowning in a sea of information overload.
The days of pumping out 500-word blog posts in 20 minutes stuffed to the brim with keywords then building spammy backlinks from garbage sites just to get your domain authority higher are OVER.
And don't even get me started about just popping keywords into Yoast and praying for the green lights to appear.
You see ...
With RankBrain (Google's new algorithm), featured snippets and E-A-T—Google has gotten a LOT smarter.
And with more & more bloggers finally realizing they can’t rely on Pinterest for ALL their traffic anymore (#smart), they're now turning their attention on SEO.
Which makes ranking high on Google search results an all out battle.
So it's no wonder people love shouting...
You can’t rely on Google anymore!
I can’t even with all these Google updates!
SEO is DEAD!
Here's the truth, friend: SEO is a long way from being dead.
It's just that doing SEO the old way is dead.
1. STOP believing that keyword research is about brainstorming one random keyword and letting the Yoast plugin take care of everything else.
Despite what you may have heard, there is a right way and wrong way to do keyword research—and if you don’t know the secret to uncovering literally thousands of golden keyword opportunities, you’re going to waste hours spinning your wheels guessing if what you’re doing is actually going to work. (#spoileralert … it’s not).
2. STOP believing that SEO is so hard, overwhelming, and is gonna take up so much of your free time that you’re never going to see your first-born kid again.
If you’re a busy side-hustlin’ Pinterest blogger who’s got little kids to look after, a full-time office gig, and a Tailwind queue you have to keep feeding lest Pinterest take away all your traffic, then how are you going to find the time to learn this SEO thing?
Here’s a little secret: once you finally know how to do SEO the right way, it all becomes second nature and you’ll begin to weave all the tips and tricks you’ve learned into your blogging routine—and you'll get access to my "One Hour a Day of SEO" framework to keep you on track.
3. STOP believing that just because you’re new to SEO, you can afford to ignore Google.
Have you been told that because you’re a new-ish blogger that you should forget about SEO and Google and focus on other, easier things (like Pinterest)?
There’s one little problem with this approach: the whole time you’re focusing on Pinterest, Google is still watching. They’re indexing your blog, judging your content quality, grading your on-page SEO, and paying super-close attention to how readers are interacting with your site.
And if you have SEO issues with your site—maybe your site speed is slow, maybe your theme isn’t mobile-friendly, maybe your content isn't up to par (the most likely culprit)—Google is going to ding you for it and bury you deep in the search results.
4. STOP being afraid to put yourself out there to get links and mentions from other big sites in your niche.
Did you know that the #1 most important factor to ranking in Google isn’t your amazing content but actually the backlinks you’re able to get back to your blog?
If you don’t know how to get high quality links from high authority sites, you’re going to have a heap of trouble ranking in Google.
5. STOP writing content that Google hates.
If your idea of “quality content” is still pumping out 500-word blog posts 3x a week just so you can say to your Facebook blogging friends that you’re “posting consistently”, then you need a new approach to creating epic content that Google loves to rank.
Look, if you’re on this page then you already know ranking and banking in Google to attract a steady flow of traffic, followers, and email subs is the key to growing your blog into the substantial source of income you’ve always known it could be.
The type of income that allows you to ...
But what you might not know is that there's a simple three-step SEO system that has the potential to ...
And it's called ...
The ABCs of SEO
Establish yourself as a true authority in your niche that Google trusts (and ranks) because you've proven yourself to be an expert.
Build links from the biggest websites in your niche so you can increase your domain authority and crush your competitors.
Effortlessly pull together a list of golden keywords and pump out amazing content that shoots to the top of Google.
Over 1,000 bloggers just like you have used my premium training course to finally overcome their SEO paralysis to confidently create the type of amazing content and backlinks that Google loves ...
Look, it's no secret that SEO "gurus" don't exactly have the best reputation in the online marketing world ... and for good reason.
Nowadays, every Neil Patel and Brian Dean wannabe is selling some kind of "bulletproof" system promising you the moon without actually having any SEO experience or results to show for themselves.
The thing is, I've been making money passively with SEO for more than five years now, including my first $5,000 month from Amazon Associates all the way back in December 2014:
Up until today when I'm still cashing $4,000 and $5,000 checks from Mediavine and Amazon month after month on auto-pilot ...
While still working my demanding 9-5 office job and helping to raise my two little adorable kids at home.
At the same time, giving bloggers in all different kinds of niches—from personal finance to printables to homeschooling to Disney to mental health and vegan recipes and everything in between—the confidence and process they need to finally get over the SEO-sized hump that had always been holding their traffic and earnings potential back.
The most easy-to-follow (yet in-depth) SEO training program laser-focused on catapulting your amazing blog posts to the top of Google over and over again.

After this module you'll have all your boxes checked on the three things Google wants to see before letting you pass "Go".
Crafting An Optimal Site Structure &
Do you know the most powerful page on your website?
If you guessed your homepage, you'd be right. The way you set up your homepage can drive some serious SEO "juice" to the rest of your blog, helping it rank ... if you have it set up the right way.
You see, chances are your homepage is the one page on your blog that has the most links pointing to it ... but if you aren't spreading that link juice around to your most important (and profitable) posts, you're leaving some serious rankings, traffic, and earnings on the table.
After this module you'll know the best way to set up your homepage, menu items, and category pages.
How To Do Keyword Research The Right Way
I'll come right out and say it: everything you've been taught about doing keyword research is probably wrong.

After this module, you'll know how to:
Getting Started With Link Building
Backlinks are the most important factor when it comes to ranking in Google, and after this module you'll know exactly why.
You'll learn why reaching out and asking for links is a lot like asking to join someone's Pinterest group board (#notsohard), and you'll come away from this module knowing that it's okay to put yourself out there so long as you're providing value.
More than that, you'll know the five things to look for that make up a "good" link, and the types of links you don't want any part of. (Paid links, anyone?)
How To Swipe Your Competitors'
When you're just starting out building links for the first time, the best approach to take is to see what's working well for other bloggers in your niche, and then swoop in get those same links for yourself.
Because if they can get them, then why can't you?
In this module you'll come away with a giant spreadsheet of link opportunities handed to you on a silver platter, and my go-to process for going through all the data and identifying the best prospects.
How To Build Links &
Relationships With Guest Posting
Guest posting is one of my bread-and-butter link building techniques—it not only allows you to get high-quality, relevant links to your blog, but it gives you the chance to build real, long-term relationships with other bloggers in your niche, which is huge.
In this module, we're covering everything from finding the best guest posting opportunities, to sending the perfect guest post pitch so your prospect has no other choice but to say yes (templates includes, of course), and how to actually write your guest post so you can be sure you'll land your link.
After this module you'll have the confidence and process in place to reach out to other bloggers to get featured on their sites and exposed to their audiences.
How To Create "Linkable Assets"
That Get Links & Shares

The thing is, if you want to get your content featured on the biggest sites in your niche, you have to know the right angle to take and how to pitch it.

How To Master Google's E-A-T Algorithm
If you've read anything about Google algorithm updates recently, you might have heard about something called E-A-T.
It stands for expertise, authority, and trust, and it's a way for Google to assess the quality of your blog and content—and it's becoming one of the most significant factors for ranking in Google.
And if you don't understand what exactly Google's looking for so you can have a game plan to address your E-A-T, you may have a hard time ranking.

I'll be honest, it can sometimes be challenging building relationships and links when the other person on the end of your outreach email has no idea who you are.
Enter: the expert roundup.
An expert roundup is when you ask a bunch of other bloggers to answer the same question about a topic in your niche, and then you publish all of their answers into one massive guide on your blog. It's an amazing way to build blogger relationships ... if you can pull it off.

Questions Savvy Bloggers Ask Themselves
Before Clicking Add to Cart
I designed this course specifically for SEO beginners, while introducing some intermediate-level strategies that you can also apply. The idea is to have the course be “newbie-friendly” but also extremely actionable and easy to digest. If you are new to SEO, then Stupid Simple SEO 2.0 is for you—I take you all the way from structuring your blog so that it’s optimized for SEO, to doing proper keyword research (saving you hours of time), to creating epic content that ranks, and then finally building backlinks.
If your goal as a brand new blogger is to get traffic (and make money), then SEO is one of the best strategies you can implement early on. Unlike Pinterest, it may take a little longer to get the ball rolling and see the snowball effect of traffic, but once Google fully "trusts" your site, it's off to the races.
If there are people searching for things on Google related to your niche, then SEO is for you. I have bloggers in all kinds of different niches—gardening, homeschooling, pet travel, motherhood, faith, personal development, simple living, fashion, Disney, you name it—that have gone through my program and seen success.
Yes ... but you will only need to spend $14. There are a lot of great (but expensive) SEO tools out there today, but I created this course specifically so you don’t have to spend a lot of money on tools. We will be using the 7-day trial of Ahrefs, two times, which costs $14 total. This means you will need to complete all of the lessons that require Ahrefs within a 14-day period (once you start your trials). There is a dedicated lesson in the course that walks you through how to use your Ahrefs trial. As you’ll see from the videos, this will be some of the best $14 you’ve ever spent, due to all of the helpful keyword and backlink data you will be able to generate, and all the time that it will save you.
How does lifetime access sound? Any additions and improvements I make over time—which I have done several times already, including the complete revamp for this 2.0 version—will be included with your purchase.
The course is 100% video, with some "action items" included in the Trello Roadmap. Every single lesson in the course is a video of my computer screen, either going over a PowerPoint lesson where I’m explaining the “what” and “why” of a particular topic, or showing you over-the-shoulder in my web browser exactly how to do something.
The course is self-pacing, so you can go through it as fast (or slow) as you like. There are 55+ videos totaling more than 11 hours of video content. The only videos you need to finish in a set amount of time are the lessons which require Ahrefs, because your two free trials will last for only 14 days. I have created a separate video walking you through your Ahrefs subscription and which lessons you need to complete within that time frame (which starts once you begin your Ahrefs trial).
While there is a lot of content inside the course, you do NOT need to watch every single video before taking action. Every module is designed to be immediately actionable, so if you prefer, you can take it one module at a time—watch all the videos in one module, then implement the strategies, then move on to the next one. This is especially true of the link-building modules—think of them as having a "menu of options" where you can try one link-building technique, and then maybe a month or two later, try another one.
Take 30 days to go through the course, and if getting your questions answered in the Facebook group, following the keyword research module to get your list of golden keyword opportunities, creating your first piece of epic content, and going through your first link building campaign, and you still don't feel like SEO is finally clicking for you ... I insist you email mike @ stupidsimpleseo .co with your keyword research spreadsheets, a link to your published piece of epic content, and copies of your link building outreach emails, and I'll refund your purchase 100%.
Yes, of course. If you make your way through the Standard version and want to upgrade to the other bonus modules, just shoot me and email and I'll get you sorted out straight away.
Do you have questions about the course, and whether it’s right for you? Just shoot me an email at mike @ stupidsimpleseo .co and I’ll be sure to get back to you right away.
How do you know you're ready to take your traffic and income to the next level and finally overcome your SEO fears?
If you find yourself nodding along to any of the following ...
With The ABCs of SEO and Stupid Simple SEO 2.0, you'll be able to establish yourself as an authority in your niche, build high-quality backlinks that increase your domain authority, and develop a content strategy that uncovers hundreds of juicy keyword ideas while giving you the tools to create epic blog posts that Google loves to rank on page 1.
So you can finally get accepted into Mediavine, have your first four-figure month with Amazon, and build the readership and following you deserve.
1,000+ of your newest, closest blogging buddies and I can't wait to meet you inside the Facebook group.
