Making Money Reviews – Batch 87

written by John Chow on June 27, 2007

The Ultimate Online Profit Model

Let’s get another batch of the reviews for linkback promotion out of the way. I have pretty much given up on catching up to the backlog. I’m just going to post a batch of reviews when there is a slot available in the posting schedule and let the backlog pile up. Right now, I’m accepting reviews for batch 93. If you haven’t written a review yet, now would be the time to do it.

Here are the 10 reviews from batch 87

How To Do A Make Money Review

To do a review of this blog and get a free linkback, all you have to do write your review, link to the review rules page and link to this blog’s home page using any of the following anchor text:

  • make money
  • make money at home
  • making money
  • make money from home
  • make money online
  • make money on the internet

Here’s an example of what I want.

John Chow dot Com is a blog that helps you make money. If you review his blog, he’ll link to it and send you a lot of traffic.

You are also free to link to any articles I’ve written as part of the review. The post must be a review of this blog. You can not mix it with any other posts or reviews. And no, you may not combine a review with a 24″ LCD contest entry.

Posting a review will get you a linkback from the 59th most popular blog on the Internet, according to Technorati. The link will send you traffic and improve your search engine and Technorati rankings.

I recommend do a review for linkback and also become top Commentators. Then you will get some traffic from :mrgreen:

Jarle June 27, 2007 at 3:58 pm

I have done a review. I am eagerly waiting for batch 91 :-)

ritchie June 27, 2007 at 3:17 pm

this might indeed be the case :cool:

It appears that google no longer ranks this site well for the keywords in the reviews. When I checked just a couple weeks ago, this site was the #1 result for “make money online” at google. Now it is off the first 5 pages, and I stopped looking. Same for the other terms. Obviously this is still a valid way to drive traffic, but it looks like it is penalized as an SEO tactic. Am I missing something, or is that true?

wow, you’re right, i just checked it as well. john’s off the front page.

ouch! that hurts

A video a day June 27, 2007 at 5:33 pm

i’m sure john will write a post analyzing the situation, stay tuned!

MrGPT June 27, 2007 at 6:08 pm

He’s already made many posts about this.
Read the archives.

Rosinha June 27, 2007 at 5:36 pm

Maybe google labels this kind of links as artificial. :?:

Just my 2 cents

Jeremy Steele June 27, 2007 at 7:55 pm

It’s a bit like a google bomb.

Rosinha June 27, 2007 at 5:20 pm

I haven’t decided yet on doing a review or not. My blog is in Portuguese so… The great traffic John generates here may be completely useless for me.

Well still have some time to think about it… :?:

Beijinho (kiss)

rosinha, i’d strongly recommend you to write john a review. traffic aside, the link love will improve your rank in search engines.

i’ve added john to my blogroll, hopefully he’d give me some link love in return

Rosinha June 27, 2007 at 5:39 pm

I Know what you mean – a good back link has no price.

Still thinking about it… :???:

Beijinho (kiss)

MrGPT June 27, 2007 at 6:11 pm

You’re already getting link love with your uhhh … comments.

Serge Stinckwich June 27, 2007 at 11:01 pm

I post a review in french in this batch. I’ll make a report in a few days about the traffic generated by a non-english blog.

Paul June 27, 2007 at 5:29 pm

Your maybe you’re getting close to a PR7?

MrGPT June 27, 2007 at 6:11 pm

That’d be awesome! He’d definitely have the top rank for the “make money online” keyword then :cool: .

Rodrigo June 27, 2007 at 5:29 pm

No donut for brazilians =/

abruxa June 28, 2007 at 3:50 am

No donuts for Portugues to :roll:

devtrench June 27, 2007 at 7:00 pm

I hope I can get my review in before John stops doing this. I’m going to take his advice and write my review now :) Having a link from a PR6 site would be great for my new blog!

I have just written my first review for John Chow, to me it is a free way to say thank you to John for all the advice I have read from his site.

And if I benefit from a reciprocal link? great!

John, I love your site and appreciate your generosity.
