    Great video. Very informative. I am pleased to say some of it I already knew but it is good to get to hear someone confirming what you think. I am even more keen to keep building after watching this video.

    Can a whole year be paid upfront?

    • Christian Colon  July 15, 2016 at 2:16 am

      Sorry just realized what a vague question that was. I meant to ask about your hosting packages for PBN’s. I noticed that you have monthly prices but there aren’t any yearly rates. Are any available?

      • Kevin Graham  July 15, 2016 at 3:04 am

        Hi Christian,
        At the moment we only have monthly subscriptions available publicly, however please log a ticket with Support and we can set you up with an annual plan and give you a 5% discount.
        Thanks
        Kevin.

    Thanks for this awesome video!

    Do you have any links outside of PBN links to boost a site that you use?

    Cheers
    Alex

      Just got to the end of the video! Ignore the question!

    Hey Kevin,

    Awesome interview, I really enjoyed it. Do you do anything for trust like social signals or social profiles?
    I think the whole, “just PBNs” is boggling a lot of people’s minds.

    Thanks dude, Cheers!

    • Kevin Graham  July 19, 2016 at 5:39 am

      Hey Ryan,
      Great question. For some of my sites where I have a monthly blog post go live, I have been starting to build social profiles on Facebook and Twitter, with IFTTT set up to post links to my new content.
      Otherwise, for the vast majority of sites including the ones that I’ve sold, I don’t have that set up.
      Cheers, Kevin.

    Great interview with solid info.
    Kevin, I think I heard you mention that you send 20 to 25 PBN links to the money site. Does that mean from 25 different PBN domains or would you count multiple links from individual PBNs?
    Thanks,
    Chris

    • Kevin Graham  July 24, 2016 at 8:07 am

      Hey Chris,
      To confirm, that’s unique PBN domains, not total number of links. Most times I’ll drop a single link in a post but occasionally I’ll drop two links to two different pages on the site.

    Hi Kevin,

    Great interview. I really enjoyed it. I think you mentioned that you use the keyword Best and Reviews. For example “Best shaving razor” and “Shaving Razor Reviews”. You said that each keyword needs to have at least 4000-5000 searches per month? Is that correct? Meaning the keyword Best shaving razor would have to have 4000-5000 searches per month in order for you to target that product? It seems like a ton of searches for a specific keyword. Would you be able to clarify please?
    Thanks,
    Stephen

    • Kevin Graham  July 29, 2016 at 6:39 am

      Ideally, that’s the sort of range that we’d be looking for the site to have on it’s main page – a total search volume of at least around 5000, which can be on it’s own (ideal) or rolled up from a few different keywords (ie the search volume for best and reviews added together – 2900 monthly searches and 1600 monthly searches for a total of 4500).

      However, the keyword research component is the responsibility of my business partner, Richard – so he is the one responsible for finding the keywords and crafting the overall structure of the site.

  • Stephen  July 29, 2016 at 1:25 pm

    That makes sense. Thanks for the response!
    Is there a minimum price for the product that you usually require? For example, would you toothbrushes even if their price is only $5? Or do you only go after high priced products?
    Thanks,
    Stephen

    • Kevin Graham  July 31, 2016 at 5:39 am

      We don’t have a minimum price for a particular page/item, but generally want to make a site that can do $500-$1000 per month at minimum. A $5 toothbrush might only pay you a 42.5 cent commission on its own, but it does help boost up your item sold counts on Amazon, which helps to bump you into higher tiers of their payout structure.

      It also gives you the chance to earn commissions on other stuff they might have previously added to their carts, or some other stuff that Amazon can convince them to buy after they click through.

    great interview! I was wondering for keyword research, since google just updated the keyword planner to be pretty useless by grouping volume for a bunch of keywords together….what are you using for keyword research.

    for example, since the update red car and red cars would both show up with the same volume number because they now group those keywords, when the old way maybe red car had 200 searches, but red cars would show 2000. now its all lumped together, and hard to get an accurate idea of actual searches per keyword. Longtail pulls its numbers from googles database if I am not mistaken….

    • Kevin Graham  August 18, 2016 at 12:32 pm

      From what I’ve read on that change in the Google Keyword Planner, that only applies to accounts that haven’t spent money on AdWords.

  • L  September 24, 2016 at 11:53 pm

    Really enjoyed the interview! Hopefully this isn’t too off topic but for local seo would you do PBNs only as well? I like the idea of only focusing on the biggest bang for your buck and collecting forum and blog comments seems like a waste of time. Thank you!

    • Kevin Graham  September 26, 2016 at 5:22 am

      Hi L,
      I don’t do Local SEO – however this guide from Charles Floate is where I would start if I was offering that service:
      http://charlesfloate.co.uk/free-local-seo
      My view is that I wouldn’t risk a client’s web site by pointing PBN links directly at it. If you wanted to use PBNs, I would build a “rank and rent” style lead gen site for them and point the PBN links at that instead. That way, if the site that you’re pointing the PBN links at gets hit, it’s not as big of a problem as if their main site was hit with a penalty.
      Thanks
      Kevin.

    Great video Kev, I appreciate your take on these Amazon affiliate sites. I’m building something similar right now and came across your video, thanks again!

    • Kevin Graham  January 28, 2017 at 8:51 am

      Appreciate the kind words, Kevin. I’d also suggest checking out Rob Atkinson’s interview here on Lion Zeal as well.
