My Exact Match Domain Spam Sites – SEO Experiment

By | December 22, 2019


-Hey there guys, today’s video is all
about the bit of a confessional on my part. My confession is, I am an SEO spammer. Yes, I said it, I spam,
and I create spam websites for SEO purposes. Few years back
I created an additional number of websites in order to test some theories I had around exact match domains. I’m going to talk to you guys
about specifically what I did why my spammy websites
are ranking when they’re full of AdSense ads and what businesses
can do to capitalize on scenario as well coming up right after this. [music] Hey there guys, Darren Taylor
of thebigmarketer.co.uk here and my job is to teach you
all about search engine marketing. If that’s up your street you should
consider subscribing to my channel. Today I’m going to talk to you guys about why I class myself as an SEO spammer and talk to you a bit about
the experiment I did a few years back and that’s led me towards a situation where I make money from AdSense
on some really spammy websites. What did I do? Well, a few years back I created a number of websites
around a very boring topic which is banks sort codes.
I noticed it was a very easy term to rank for for things like Barclays
sort codes or Santander sort codes. Basically any bank sort code. What I did I bought a number
of domains exact match domains for barclayssortcodes.com,
Santandersortcode.com, and things like that. That was really what I did. I put the websites live. Luckily I have the skills
to build websites quite quickly. I build these websites
and these exact match domains optimize the sites on page,
in a normal way, looking at headers content images, all those
kind of things, titles, descriptions. Everything standard on page SEO wise
I optimized on these websites. I just thought to myself
let’s see what happens and indeed we did find out what happened. If you look at the visual
on screen right now you will see from when I launched
a website all the way through until now I grew the organic traffic
for the barclayssortcodes.com website. Not just that I grew it for HSBC.
I grew it for Santander. It just seemed like a very easy
way to generate free traffic and of course,
I loaded the website with AdSense because it took me about half
a day to build these websites and I want to get paid for it. I loaded it with AdSense and to this day I still make revenue off
AdSense from these websites. Why am I telling you this? The reason I’m telling you this is because in reality, why should I rank for those terms. When you think about it
my websites that I created are low quality they’re exact match domains which Google says shouldn’t matter anymore when clearly, to some degree it must do because I’m ranking
for these terms quite successfully. All of these reasons are explained, I guess why I think businesses
are missing a massive trick because there are a number
of businesses out there from a commercial point of view
who would actually benefit from ranking for the terms I’m targeting. Say, for example, you are a transfer company with this international bank transfers,
maybe your Western Union maybe your TransferWise,
maybe there are even products out there in fact I know there are products out there where they sell sort code data
to businesses to verify transactions. Again, that’s another
business that could benefit from ranking for the terms I am. Now, these websites all said and done,
generate thousands of users and thousands of sessions per week. These businesses could definitely
benefit from this, why the hell aren’t they? Well, it all comes down to the fact that a lot of businesses
just miss the opportunity. There are so many low hanging fruit keywords that are out there that potentially
your business could rank for. In my scenario it was
around sort codes, in other areas it might be contact
centers or things like that. There are a number
of different places and businesses that could rely on these
really, really easy to rank for terms to generate revenue for their business. This is a huge missed opportunity. Look at the traffic I’ve generated doing this and how I feel like I’ve outed myself. I’ve left myself open to vulnerability to stop generating revenue
but I don’t care to be honest. I’d rather share the information
with you around what I did and how I did. I hope that it spurs you on to think of areas within your business
where you could potentially rank for keywords that are quite easy
to rank for, that’ll bring you traffic but also bring you relevant traffic. Mid funnel traffic in reality. Nothing that’s going
to get you sales overnight but something that’s going to put your brand in the minds of businesses when it comes to discussing subjects around your niche. The premise of this video is really to make sure that you understand
there are key words out there that you could rank for
very, very quickly within your niche that will bring you traffic
to brand your business. Thank you guys so much

    Hi Darren, very interesting~ I have two questions: 1. could you tell me/us why you have decided to put a dash the way you did? (barclays-sortcodes.co.uk VS barclayssortcodes.co.uk :: is it because of the double SS?) ; 2. would you have the ranking (SERP) position graph since inception? (not shown in the video).
