John Thomas Jordan is a 17 year old Internet marketer who claims to have been in the game since the age of 14. He created his blog, JTJNet.com back in February to talk about internet marketing and his life. After seven months of blogging, his RSS stands at a very sad two readers. Therefore, Jordan decided to try for the John Chow effect by ordering up this ReviewMe review.
Who Is John Jordan?
Despite being only 17 years old, Jordon seems to have a colorful life. He started his first business at age 11 and by the time he was 13, he was making $1,000 a month. By his 14th birthday he got into some kind of trouble with law. He didn’t go into much detail about that other than say he was handcuffed, beaten with a night stick and taken to jail. He received deferred adjudication and 6 months probation. All because he stayed out past curfew, according to Jordon.
During the 6 months, Jordan stayed inside the house and got hooked on a game called Red Alert 2. That was how he got into Internet marketing.
I loved the game so much I created a website for it and saw what other people were doing and put Google Ads on it. The website made some money around 1.00 a day I was like Man! this is easy. I can just make tons of websites and make alot of the big bucks. So I started building alot of websites and making a lot more money.
I ran into alot of smart people at webmaster forums and picked up alot of ideas and built more ideas off of those. I then started creating business plans, learning PPC advertisement and affiliate marketing exstensively. I learned basic seo and built off of that to dominate with my big money making websites in the SERPS. Met some big Software and Script Marketers started learning the rules and must do’s to those.
The Blog of John Jordan
After reading through all of John Jordon’s blog entries, I can understand why he only has two RSS readers. Jordon is an on again, off again blogger. The first post was back in February 25. All it said was, “Well this is my first post WooHoo! Nothing to it.” The second post didn’t show up until March 14th and that was an “inspired” post.
Jordan did managed to make ten posts in March but the following month he made only two. This was followed by one post each in May and June, then three posts in July. For this month, Jordan didn’t write anything until August 12.
It’s great that Jordan ordered this review to generate some buzz for this blog, but if this on again, off again blogging continues, it won’t matter how big of John Chow Effect he receives. His blog will be back to two readers.
Many of the blog posts have formatting errors. There are line breaks where there shouldn’t be line breaks. This makes the blog very hard to read. It is also difficult to follow what Jordan is trying to say in many of the posts because he can’t seem to compose a sentence properly. Read Google Adwords Tips Part 1 and Part 2 to see what I mean.
I have a few credibility issues that bugs me about John Jordan. He claims to know SEO but the blog doesn’t even have SEO friendly URLs. He claims to have many big moneymaking sites but he never made a single post about any of them. He claims he use the domain JTJNet.com because that is the name of his corporation. However, I was unable to find J.T.J. Networks, Inc. registered in the state of Texas. While I am not fully verse in US incorporation laws, I believe one has to be at least 18 before they can be a director of a incorporated company.
Then there is this post about using credit cards to buy websites. I am not sure when Jordan form his corporation but the general rule of thumb is a corp must have two years of earning record in order to qualify for a credit card. Failing that, a credit card can be issue to a corp using the director’s credit history. In this case, the director isn’t 18 yet, so he can’t apply for a credit card. The other issue I had with the post is Jordan made no mention of transferring the credit card debt to a lower interest line of credit after the purchase of the sites. Maybe Jordan is too young to know what a corporate LOC is.
Hopefully, Jordan can address some of these issues in a future blog post. I am certainly willing to give someone the benefit of the doubt but the John Jordan blog leaves me with more questions than answers.
