    Watch out for this article cluster ordering problem (includes simple fixes)

    I've ordered clusters, which are multiple articles within the same topic, only to end up with this big problem.  It was my fault. I'm glad I spotted it.  I figured out a fix and now it's not a problem.  It's a widespread issue so watch out for it.

    There is no RIGHT way to go about blogging and publishing niche sites

    There is no RIGHT way to go about blogging and publishing niche sites

    Every day I'm faced with decisions.  I've learned over the years, often there is no right way to go about things.  The important thing to do is to make the decision and do something.  You can always go back and fix stuff.   I also delve into bird's eye view SEO logic, home pages and content production.

    How I update/improve older content (2 methods)

    Learn about my two methods for improving content.  There's the "Quick n' Dirty" Hands Off method and the "Full Workup - Swingin' for the Fences" method.

    Show Notes:

    1. Quick n’ dirty “hands off” method
    Identify new sections/subheadings and sub-topics to add
    Outsource the write-ups
    Add as chunks to existing.
    Listicles: New list or add to list. Keep old list at bottom.
    2. The full workup - swingin’ for the fences
    Better intro - answer the main question right away (I’ve been doing this in a roundabout way for years)
    Rewrite clumsy writing
    Dog beds are… Dog beds should… Dog beds…New/better images
    Full keyword analysis and injection
    Insert more long tails in content and as sectionsUpdate any dates in the content/titles
    Convert to Gutenberg and add more styling
    Improve any Conversion Rate Optimization opportunities
    Consider removing sidebar
    Content enhancer opportunities:
    Facts/data/statistics (don’t forget tables and charts)Quotes - get quotes from industry experts in videos or articles (reference the links)jokesAnecdotes/stories/examplesFAQ section (don’t forget schema markup)
    Improve interlinking
    Improve referencing
    Pagespeed analysis:  If low page speed scores - remove embeds, compress images, remove scripts (quizzes, maps, videos, etc.)

We love Jon!

Not only does he write the best newsletter out there, but now we get to hear more from him in voice.

Thanks for all the great information and strategy, Jon. Keep up the great work!

Real, Raw

Jon is a straight shooter, pure action taker.

He talks the talk (in the podcast) but also walks the talk. He’s literally doing the things he’s talking about, in his own business.

I subscribe to a lot of big and small podcasts out there. This is the best. I look forward to his new episodes more than the other marketing/business podcasts out there because there is no fluff and no bs, just straight actionable advice that you can implement today.

If you want music, intros and outros and all the fancy Podcast things, you’ll have to look elsewhere.

He is humble, yet is killing it in the online content publishing space and he’s teaching everyone listening how to do the same.

I think that if you give him a chance you’ll soon realize that you’re saving yourself a ton of energy, money and effort just by listening to and implementing his advice.

Give his podcast a listen and I think you’ll be happy you did. It could literally change your life.

Just what I was looking for.

I estimate that over the last 8 years I’ve consumed about 4,500 hours of podcast on the subject of online business- how to, etc. I wish I would have started here. Short, concise, specific to 1 business model (generally), and full of value, info, and actionable steps. Very addicting! Great work!
