Boosting Twitter Shares

A fresh idea from Aladdin of Growth Hacking (

Thing is: few people (1 to 5 %) from your audience of readers will actually share your content.

If you invest a lot of time in making sure your content gets read by 1,000 people, you’ll get 10 to 50 shares maximum. Most probably just about 10.

So what can you do? -> Find the kinds of people who ACTUALLY share content and get them to share yours.

Aladdin’s method:

As you see, sharers are very rare – only 1 person per every 15-25.

Here comes a trick.
In order to boost shares by 15-25 times, you need to promote your content to people who belong to this rare group.

1. Write down links to content similar to yours.
2. Go to and search them one by one.
3. Switch to the “Live” tab.
4. Here they are – people who love to share your type of content.
5. Hit reply near each tweet and make everybody happy 😉

ranking idea

But the CRUCIAL step here is – SEO competitive analysis(page/domain authority, the # of backlinks, etc).
It’s next-to-impossible with a low budget to rank #1 on Google for highly competitive keywords.

Michael Karp found low competitive keywords and in 9 monthsgot multiple #1 rankings and 178,000 search engine visits.

Here’re the instructions on doing competitive analysis:
1. Go to Google KeywordPlanner and KeywordTool to find suitable in-demand keywords.
2. Install MozBar and SEOquake Chrome extensions.
3. Google each of your keywords.
4. When you see low page/domain authority, low # of backlinks on the first 5 results on Google – you are golden– this is your winning keyword that makes sense to focus on.

Recently, I released a case study where a person achieved #2 rank on Google for a keyword “Content Upgrade“. If you look at the results page through the lens of the SEO Chrome extensions, you will see why – because of the low competition.

I was LIVE on Youtube Yesterday with Squirrly 2016

I was LIVE yesterday on Youtube doing a Live Webinar for Squirrly 2016. I’ve streamed some of the best ways to use it to become an SEO Superstar.

I’ve highlighted the differences between this plugin and the classics. Also, there are mentions of many details that you might miss while using the software, so hopefully this live stream will shed more light on how to get great at WordPress SEO.

It’s been super fun to do this and I’m happy that people were there ’til the end of it.

A new Live Session will happen next week, so in case you have questions, just make sure you’ll attend:

Tell Stories Through Content

Tell Stories through Content – Owners create useful information that tells the story of the people they serve. It’s not about them. It’s about how they represent the specific people they hope to work with.

Be Relentless In Your Own Way

6048 miles an impressive feat. And while I don’t want to diminish his accomplishment, somehow committing an hour and a half a day to a goal sounds reasonable.

Of course, the show led with a story about a man who walked 6048 miles; the entirety of New York City. That’s a lot more compelling than, “man walks about an hour and a half every day and then writes a book about it.”

But that’s essentially what happened.
