Very interesting how your sites are moving on.
There’s one question I was wondering when you are flipping a website, how you were able to receive related social media accounts like pinterest or facebook as well. If anyone’s considering flipping a site, is it necessary to make separate accounts that are related to the site or is there a way to give away a part, like facebook page?
Thanks and good luck with your sites!

The social media profiles/logins were included when I bought the site.

The podcast format with Perrin as co-host works great. I liked when he was asking the questions that your audience might ask. Almost Perrin interviewing Spencer… I think it could work well as a regular format.

It’s also a lot more natural sounding to hear a conversation rather than a monologue.

Spencer Haws

Thanks Alistair


hey spencer i want to ask you about getting links from forum posting is it good ?


Dude , Don’t do that , such links can badly impact your site.
get some high pr links , and 2.0 properties for diversifying you anchor text.

forum links are usually related to spam ,and they can easily trigger Google penalties.


even if the link is contextual and relevent and DA is above 20 ?


Hey Seddek , a few links won’t hurt, just don’t overdo it.
Spammy forum posting (Using softs like seonuke) will hurt your site .Trust me i’ve been there, and i’ve done that.

Spencer Haws

I would mostly avoid. However, if you are truly a member of a couple of forums and provide real value there, then its okay. But spamming dozens of forums is not a good idea at all.


i am not using any automated software and not playing to use one also
can you clarify more when is it a bad thing?
how much is too much ?

Jeffrey Dibble

Hi Seddek,

Don’t even build one link with forum? You will hurt your site. Trust me when i said don’t build a link to it. All my previous sites are down in the drain and that also i build the links on my own.

There is no point building it. Buy a few high pr with naked url text or brand text. You will see some serp movement, dude.

Great podcast Spencer and Perrin. You can count me as a fan of your documentary review. We watched “Make Believe” this weekend with my boys who love magic and they were hooked! My 11 year old has been practicing his card tricks all weekend and it led to a great conversation on goals and the value of hard work.


Spencer Haws

That’s awesome! Magic tricks can be a lot of fun…I have a 10 year old son…I should introduce some “magic” to him.


Can’t we can rank website without Private Blog Netwok? Its cost high when choosing PBN.
