It`s my suspicion
that the original poster and bluedogbites are the same person. Both poster`s websites are from Michigan, both new posters, same style of writing, etc.
Based on the link provided the original poster is an affiliate of the e-book she is trying to promote
; thus anyone who purchases the book from the link provided will be helping this poster earn money. That`s perfectly fine by me if the book is a great resource for whomever purchases it.
It should be noted however, that you can actually become an affiliate without ever purchasing or reading the e-book (http://honestriches.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=34&Itemid=31). In my opinion the original poster either didn`t read the book or the book isn`t that good (I have not read the book and do not intend on reading it).
The reason I believe this is because the site she claims has a number 1 ranking based on keywords has only two words in her source document "michigan horse". If you google either one of those two words, separately or together, her site is nowhere to be found.
If you use one of the freely available page rank checkers (http://www.iwebtool.com/pagerank_checker) you`ll see that she has a page ranking of 4.
In comparison, my website, that I created myself, using no special SEO books or tools, is also a page ranking of 4. So it makes me wonder if that`s about average as that`s where I would have guessed my page would have fallen.As many business owners have learned, the point is to do your research before you spend your money based on any product or service, especially if the product is promoted in the fashion that this product has been.
Just in case someone thinks a page ranking of 4 is good, I`ll let everyone know what I did to obtain the same page rank as the original poster. I used the basic KISS (Keep It Simple Silly) principal:
- No ads
- Say what you want to say in as few words as possible
That`s it and it`s free.
