A little about me and my experience:
I’ve been blogging since 2010. Back then, the main way to drive traffic to your site was SEO. So I learned everything there was to learn. I was a sponge and read hundreds of SEO articles. I was on a mission. I had to make it work. My brick and mortar business depended on it!
And, I succeeded. I wrote lots of laser focused long-tail search articles that were targeted to my ideal and local customer. And lo and behold, I was able generate 5 appointments a week (1/3 of my business).
And, then from there, I kept reading, learning and experimenting. I wasn’t trying to grow my page views (I was not monetizing back then, so I didn’t care). I only blogged once per month and kept growing and growing. I couldn’t help it. It just kept happening. I easily made it to over 100,000 pageviews/month just by posting once per month.
Fast forward, I’m now monetizing my blog, in less than 2 years, I made a full time income (5 figures per month). I have well over 500,000 page views/month with around 60% Organic. (I do very well on Pinterest too!)
By 27 months, I started earning $20,000 per month (in profit).
Over a year ago, I started to coach some bloggers teaching them how to do SEO (these were one on one phone consultations). I just wanted to help them grow their blog (while making a bit of extra money which came in handy) while I was growing my blog. It turned out to be really fun, and I made some new connections and friends.
Well from there, word of mouth spread like wild fire, and I started to get very busy. My students (or clients or new found friends, blog-mates)…not sure what to call them…were thrilled with what they learned and they started to see some strong results. They suggested that I write this ebook. And, so I have.
I’ve coached over 100 bloggers (I’ve lost count) and have had a 3 month waiting list. I never imagined this would happen. They recommended I write an ebook sharing my methods.
So, it turns out it takes a LONG time to write an ebook. It has taken me 3x as long as I thought it would (what else is new?). This ebook is over 160 pages. It is jam packed with information! I believe in delivering a quality product, so I’ve put my heart and soul into it.
I didn't expect to learn anything new, yet Debbie's ebook has blown me away! I've taken a $500 SEO course and have been blogging for years, yet I've never come across anything like this. It's a treasure trove of easy backlinks. This is the best investment I've made this year! - Zoe Wyb
…and more importantly to earn more affiliate income. And, you can too! I’m not going to promise you a get rich quick solution. Slow and steady wins the race. SEO takes time, and it is gradual. Once you have it though, it’s long lasting and fairly passive.
It may not take that much time to do the work (I often just spend 1-3 hours per week on SEO), but it can take a while before the search engines start to pay attention to your site.
If you get started now, it means that you will get closer to your end goal sooner. AND, it will save rework later.
I wanted to make this ebook very focused and solve a real need out there among bloggers: How do you build backlinks to your site?
This is a big question that most bloggers have. They know that building backlinks is super important. BUT, they just don’t know HOW to do it. Or, they don’t know WHERE to do it.
Or, they are just too overwhelmed by the whole prospect of building backlinks. So, they get parallelized and don’t do anything. They think it’s harder and more time consuming than it actually is.
I’m here to tell you that SEO is not that hard. It seems overwhelming, but once you understand how to do it, it’s not hard. It’s logical, and it just becomes a “rinse and repeat” formula.
There are 2 main components needed: On-page optimization and Off-page optimization. They each account for about 50% of the results. Yes, 50%. You need BOTH. (And, I coach people on both during my one on one sessions).
While great content/on-page optimization is key (without it, you are nowhere), you are won’t get very without the other 50%. Why put yourself a disadvantage?
Getting more backlinks will improve your Domain Authority…so that all your articles can perform better – past, present and future.
Backlinking is mentioned in most courses and ebooks. The only problem is that the topic is often glossed over and is never covered in depth.
Hence, the focus of this ebook…how and where to build backlinks.
I will show you how and where, and which types have the biggest impact.
In this ebook, I cover a multitude of techniques – from easy to more challenging. These are white hat techniques. And, these are strategies that work for new and intermediate bloggers as well as advanced bloggers.
You do not need to do all of these techniques to be successful. You can pick and choose which ones are best for you. And, I’m sure you’ll see that majority of strategies in here are fairly easy
Before I took Debbie’s SEO courses, I thought ranking content for Google was about guessing at keywords and crossing your fingers Google liked what you wrote. I didn’t understand it and SEO seemed like another language. As a beginner to SEO, Debbie’s Easy On Page SEO ebook gave me an overview in an easy to understand digestible way that broke things down into actionable steps.
And her backlinks ebook was so EYE OPENING! Debbie helped me realize why backlinks are just as important as keyword research, plus she gives TONS of resources for getting backlinks to your posts regardless of niche.
If you’ve been frustrated with SEO, I highly recommend buying BOTH of Debbie’s SEO ebooks! They definitely go hand in hand and will leave you with a step by step plan to start getting Google traffic.

For all you who don’t know me, I don’t blog about blogging, nor do I blog about making money online. Rather, I have a Home Decor blog. So, you should know that these principles apply to all types of blogs.
I don’t like to sell people stuff. People love to buy, but they hate to be sold to. And, I hate selling, so there you go.
I could start posting all my income reports or my analytics, but like I said, I’m not trying to sell other things or brag. I hope that I will double my income in 2 to 3 years…but that really has nothing to do with this principles in this ebook.
I also want to be straight forward on what I won’t cover in this training:
These are important, and do I teach them one on one, but THIS ebook is focused on the one area that almost no one seems to teach bloggers…HOW TO BUILD BACKLINKS (Quality White hat links).This ebook should help you improve your domain authority and help individual articles rank better.
So, if you would like to learn how to build backlinks to strengthen your rankings, I would love to teach you how I do it. I’ve been blogging since 2010 and I have tons of articles on Page 1 (and many in the top 3 slots). I’d love to help you get there, too.
