First of all let me point out this is not a paid post. If you read my blog you’ll know I shoot straight from the hip and say it just as I see it. Good and Bad. I’m the first to criticize and the first to praise. Today I have praise for Rob Monster and Epik.
Rob has gotten used to my constant emails getting on him about things I’d like to see with my domains. To make it worse on Rob, I only had two with him. Yet despite my rants and raves, Rob always answers and does his best to make it right or at least give me an answer as to why. Would I like to see improvement? Sure, so would he, but things take time. One thing didn’t take time though, getting my domains to the top of Google.
I did Rob a favor a few weeks ago and he kindly traded the favor for a free development of a domain. I had just purchased bookbag.org for $400 and liked the amount of searches the term was getting. I figured the org actually worked for a school type item and the price seemed fair (what I paid for the domain and the free development) so I chose that as my freebie. That was just a few weeks ago and it’s already on the first page of Google and making a few dollars a week. He’s already gotten on the front page for my domain robotic pets but that was easier because there aren’t a ton of sites for that term. Bookbags has millions and yet there it sits.
I still have issues with Epik but they are all things that can and probably will be worked out and I certainly can’t argue with the results. Once you are on the front page of Google you are opening a big can of whoop ass. Especially on a big online buying term like book bags. Good Job Rob but don’t think this will slow down the “Can you do this/check on this for me” emails.
