If you are a regular visitor to RichQuickReview, then I’m sure you noticed that I switched themes recently. This this new one is a theme made by Elegant Themes and in this post I want to give them a short review, talk about whether they are useful for online marketing purposes and also discuss an interesting lesson in marketing that you can learn from the Elegant Themes business model.
An interesting and, as far as I know, unannounced change has just taken place with the Google Keyword Research Tool: If you go and check the search volumes for your targeted keywords, you’ll likely find that all of the numbers are far lower now than they were before.
The change affects all search volume numbers. The ones we’re interested in for SEO purposes are generally the exact match volumes, though. In some cases, the drop in search volume is dramatic, with numbers being only fractions of what they were just a few hours or days ago and in other cases the changes are less dramatic. From the quick scan I had through my keywords list, it seemes that all of the search volume numbers dropped by at least 50%.
So, what’s going on, here?
Here’s just a quick video I put together on how you can, in many cases, recognize scammy and useless Internet marketing products by just taking a quick look at the sales-page:
This video is definitely made for newbies, so if you're one of my seasoned readers, there's gonna be no news for you here. Hopefully, the video can help some beginners steer clear of a bad experience and help them not get scammed out of their money...
Andrew Hansen has a very well articulated and detailed post about this topic. He provides some actual quotes from people who create these newbie traps and gives some interesting insight into what goes on "behind the scenes". Highly recommend you check it out: Internet Marketing Scams.
Backlink Battleplan is my first “premium” product. Actually, that’s not a very good way of putting it, because my free stuff tends to be pretty “premium” as well. Backlink Battleplan is the first product I’m actually going to ask you to pay for, then.
Right now, though, it’s not available yet. And to pass the time until it is, I’m going to be giving out some free tips, tools and techniques.
You can sign up here to go get them.
Backlink Battleplan is all about building links and there are two things that really set it apart:

Again, please take the survey above and help me out with this. Also, taking the survey makes you totally awesome and increases your attractiveness to the opposite sex by at least 130%, so there’s something in it for you, too. ;)
Just a quick update: SEOLinkVine has now been closed for new members. It’s still possible to sign up for free and add your own sites to the network and receive free content. However, the link-building portion of SEOLinkVine, the part you have to pay for, is no longer open for new members.
For everyone on the lookout for alternatives to SEOLV, please check out my very extensive blog networks roundup review. There, you will also see why SEOLinkVine is not recommended, compared to some of it’s competing products and services.
That’s all for now. Cheers,
