The Best Damn Amazon Affiliate WordPress Plugin that Ever Existed

The Best Damn Amazon Affiliate Wordpress Plugin

Hello. My name is Matt. And this is my story about why and how I decided to create and build the best damn Amazon affiliate WordPress plugin that ever existed.

But first things first – I can only take half of the credit. I actually teamed up with a world-class WordPress developer on this project. Partly because I’m not a developer (coder) at all and mostly because I didn’t have tens of thousands of dollars to pay a developer to build this plugin for me. So I partnered up with a bad-ass coder who prefers to remain anonymous. He calls himself Alchemy Coder. We call him AC, for short.

#FUGDPR – I’m Blocking EU Visitors (It’s Just Easier)

Convert GDPR

Disclaimer: Nothing on this page should be considered legal advice. This is just one dumb guy’s best attempt at understanding the complexity of the new GDPR rules and why he is blocking EU visitors to try to comply (or not).

I’ve already wasted FAR too much of my precious time trying to understand this ridiculousness. I’m kind of pissed and I want to know where I can send the bill to reimburse me for this wasted time. Since the European Union (EU) is threatening to fine websites that don’t comply – do you think I should send the bill to them?

Airbnb Passive Income (An Unconventional Method)

airbnb passive income

All too often, we come across content in the passive income sphere (more like a blob but that’s another matter) that is either all filler, or the classic regurgitated 5-minute-fix that you’ve heard too many times for your liking. This story about Airbnb passive income is by no means an article intended to bash proven methods – on the contrary, the composition of this post was undertaken to utilize what has worked in the past, but with a twist for those who either are not comfortable with the current models, or who are finding difficulty getting past the sometimes insurmountable barriers to entry that come along with them. Usually it goes something like this…

#FUGDPR – No Updates to my Privacy Policy

Below is an exact copy & paste of the email that I sent out to all of my subscribers today…

Hi,

Just writing to let you know that I have NOT updated my Privacy Policy.

I think it’s really great that the entire world is bending over to comply with one new European law. What makes it even better – that the millions of small-time bloggers or website owners (myself included) are expected to try to make sense of the complexities of this new law and make our sites compliant – regardless of whether or not we live in the EU. This is just thrilling and fantastic! I love it!!

Long Tail Pro Review

Long Tail Pro Review

Long Tail Pro – once hailed as the undisputed best keyword research tool – has certainly seen it’s ups and downs over the years. Long Tail Pro was originally created by Spencer Haws, from NichePursuits.com, back in 2011. He paid to have the software developed in order to relieve his own frustration with the amount of time it took him to find good keywords. In this Long Tail Pro Review – I’m going to cover every aspect of the tool, from its origin to the latest update and all of the features and everything in between.

Long Tail Pro evolved and went through several changes in its first few years. The most notable being the addition of the Keyword Competitiveness (KC) score – which is a keyword difficulty measurement. This was a revolutionary change that was pioneered by Spencer and Long Tail Pro and, at the time, was the only tool (that I know of) that had this type of feature.

Eventually, Spencer sold his Long Tail Pro business. It’s a fascinating story, really. You can read all about it in full detail on Spencer’s blog (linked below) or listen to the story in Spencer’s own words on Steve Chou’s podcast (also linked below)…
