all know SEO is a long-term game… at least when it comes to Google.
And yes, who doesn’t want to be at the top of Google for some of the most competitive terms? But the reality is, we don’t all have the budget or time.
then, what should you do?
Well, what if I told you there were simple ways to get more organic traffic and, best of all, you don’t have to do one bit of SEO?
what is it? And how can you get more organic traffic?
this story will help explain it…
I first started my journey as an SEO, I got really good at one thing.
Now to be fair, this was back in 2003 when it wasn’t that hard to rank on Google (or any other search engine for that matter).
Stuff some keywords into your page, your meta tags, and build some spammy rich anchor text links and you were good to go.
could literally see results in less than a month.
SEO wasn’t too complicated back then. So much so, that I even started an SEO agency and created a handful of sites.
I was starting to rank my sites at the top of Google but they didn’t make a dollar. Literally, not a single dollar.
In fact, I was actually losing money on them because I had to pay for the domain registration expenses and hosting.
So, one day I decided that I was tired of losing money and I was going to do something about it. I took the keywords that I was ranking for and started to type them into Google to see who was paying for ads for those terms.
I hit up each of those sites and tried to get a hold of the owner or the person in charge of marketing.
I asked them how much they were paying for ads and offered them the same exact traffic for a much lower price. I was able to do this because I already had sites that ranked for those keywords.
In other words, I offered to rent out my website for a monthly fee that was a fraction of what they were paying for paid ads.
Next thing you know I was collecting 5 figures in monthly checks and my “renters” were ecstatic because they were generating sales at a fraction of the costs compared to what they were spending on paid ads.
So, what’s the strategy?
Well, it’s simple. Back in the day, I used to rent out my websites… the whole site.
days I’ve learned how to monetize my own site, so I don’t rent them out.
But you know what, most of the sites that rank on Google are content-based sites. Over 56% of a website’s organic traffic is typically going to their blog or articles.
So why not rent a page on someone else’s site? From there, modify that page a bit to promote your products or services?
know this sounds crazy, but it works. I have one person that just reaches out
to site owners asking if we can rent out a page on their site. We do this for
all industries and verticals… and when I look at how much we are spending
versus how much income we are generating, it’s crazy.
Here are the stats for the last month:
Outreach costs: $3,000
and monetization costs: $1,500
monthly cost: $29,672
guess what my monthly income was?
your cost on this model won’t be as high as mine because you can do your own
outreach, monetize the page you are renting on your own, and you probably don’t
need a lawyer.
And don’t be afraid of how much I am spending in rental fees as you can get away with spending $0 in the first 30 days as I will show you exactly what to do.
Remember, it’s also not what you are spending, it’s about profit and what you are making. If it won’t cost you any money in the first 30 days and you can generate income, your risk is little to none.
are the exact steps you need to follow:
#1: Find the terms you want to rank for
you already know the terms you want to rank for, great, you can skip this step.
If you don’t, I want you to head to Ubersuggest and type in a few of your competitors’ URLs.
over to the top pages report and look at their top pages.
click on “view all” under the estimated visits column to see a list of
keywords that each page ranks for.
I want you to create a list of all of the keywords that contain a high search volume and have a high CPC. Keywords with a high CPC usually mean that they convert well.
with a low CPC usually mean they don’t convert as well.
you are making a list of keywords, you’ll need to make sure that you have a
product or service that is related to each keyword. If you don’t then you won’t
be able to monetize the traffic.
#2: Search for the term
time to do some Google searches.
for all of the pages that rank in the top 10 for the term you ideally want to
waste your time with page 2.
I want you to look for is:
- Someone who isn’t your competitor. Your competition isn’t likely to rent out a page on their site to you.
- A page that isn’t monetized. Not selling a product or service. (If the page has ads, don’t worry.)
- A site owned by a smaller company… a publicly-traded company isn’t likely to do a deal. A venture-funded company isn’t likely to do a deal either (Crunchbase will tell you if they are venture-funded).
#3: Hit up the website
Typically, through their contact page, they should have their email addresses or phone number listed. If they have a contact form, you can get in touch that way as well.
you can’t find their details, you can do a whois
lookup to see if you can find their phone number.
you want to do is get them on the phone. DO NOT MAKE YOUR PITCH OVER EMAIL.
just doesn’t work well over email.
you can’t find their phone number, email them with a message that goes
something like this…
Subject: [their website name]
Hey [insert first name],
Do you have time for a quick call this week?
We’ve been researching your business and we would like to potentially make you an offer.
Let me know what works for you.
[insert your name]
[insert your company]
[insert your phone number]
want to keep the email short as I have found that it tends to generate more
Once you get them on the phone, you can tell them a little bit about yourself. Once you do that, tell them that you noticed they have a page or multiple pages on their website that interest you.
out the URL and tell them how you are interested in giving them money each
month to rent out the page and you wouldn’t change much of it… but you need
some more information before you can make your offer.
At this point, you’ll want to find out how much traffic that page generates and the keywords it ranks for. They should have an idea by just looking at their Google Analytics (you’ll find most of these sites don’t use Google Search Console).
you have that, let them know that you will get in touch with them in the next
few days after you run some numbers.
Go back, try to figure out what each click is worth based on a conservative conversion rate of .5%. In other words, .if 5% of that traffic converted into a customer, what would the traffic be worth to you after all expenses?
want to use a conservative number because you can’t modify the page too
heavily or else you may lose rankings.
you have a rough idea of what the page is worth, get back on the phone with
them and say you want to run tests for 30 days to get a more solid number on
what you can pay them as you want to give them a fair offer.
most people don’t have an issue because they aren’t making money from the page
in the first place.
#4: Monetize the page
you are selling a product, the easiest way to monetize is to add links to the
products you are selling.
example, if you are selling a kitchen appliance like a toaster, you can add
links from the article to your site.
The easiest way to monetize a blog post is to add links to products or services you are selling.
Don’t delete a lot of the content on the page you are modifying… adding isn’t too much of an issue but when you delete content sometimes you will lose rankings.
for a service-based business, linking out to pages on your site where people
can fill out their lead information is great.
Or you can just add lead capturing to the page you are renting out. Kind of like how HubSpot adds lead forms on their site.
I’ve actually found that they convert better than just linking out to your site.
monetizing the page you are renting, keep in mind that you will need disclaimers
to let people know that you are collecting their information for privacy
purposes. You also should disclose you are renting out the page.
Once you are monetizing the page for a bit, you’ll have a rough idea of what it is worth and you can make an offer on what you’ll page.
I recommend doing a 12-month contract in which you can opt-out
with a 30-day notice.
The reason you want a 12-month agreement is that you don’t want to have to keep renegotiating. I also include the 30-day opt-out notice in case they lose their rankings, you can opt-out.
And to clarify on the op-out clause, I have it so only I can opt-out and they are stuck in the agreement for a year.
SEO isn’t the only way you can get more organic traffic.
Being creative, such as renting pages that already rank is an easy solution. Best of all, you can get results instantly and it’s probably cheaper than doing SEO in the long run.
The only issue with this model is that it is really hard to
If I were you, I would do both. I, of course, do SEO on my own site because it provides a big ROI. And, of course, if you can rent out the pages of everyone else who ranks for the terms you want to rank for, it can provide multiple streams of income from SEO.
The beauty of this is model is that you can take up more than one listing on page 1. In theory, you can take up all 10 if you can convince everyone to let you rent their ranking page.
So, what do you think of the idea? Are you going to try it out?

Did you know that you can buy a house on Amazon? And no, I’m not joking. Go ahead, open Amazon in a new tab and search for ‘container house’. Pretty cool, right? Sure, maybe nobody will ever buy it BUT you can profit with an Amazon affiliate site promoting crazy items like that.
Novelty Site Builder it’s a WordPress plugin and a theme combo that lets you build Amazon stores with cool novelty stuff. There’s also a browser extension that allows you to automatically import Amazon products without API.So, How Do You Profit If Nobody Is Buying
The Products You Promote?
Thanks to Amazon’s generous 24 affiliate cooking window, you get paid commission on all purchases people make after they click your link. Not just the products that you promote. That means you can use the funny/unusual products to achieve viral traffic to your site and profit from everything they buy after clicking your link.

As Rohit Sharma led India to a 6-wicket win over South Africa during the Cricket World Cup on June 5, millions of fans hit Reliance Jio’s mobile streaming application to tune in and cheer for Team India.
Bursts of viewers ranging from 100,000 to as many as 5 million users would hit the app at the same time, as India’s manic enthusiasm for the sport propelled a total of 20 million subscribers to stream the live match from their mobile phones via Jio, India’s largest mobile telecom company.
Sudden bandwidth spikes like these can blow through a company’s physical server capacity and cause outages and delays that ruin the experience, and send customers straight to a competitor. Because cloud computing infrastructure is elastic, meaning it can scale up for massive workloads, and back down when demand lets up, upgrading to a cloud infrastructure can help businesses provide reliable service without worrying about their server getting overloaded.
Of course, companies could always add more physical servers, but that takes a lot of time, and it gets expensive, fast, requiring more data center space, staff, and electricity. “We have to handle these kinds of bursts, and give our customers the same great experience, no matter how many CPUs or bandwidth servers we need,” says Gaurav Duggal, Jio’s vice president of technology.
Duggal says Jio ran the live cricket streaming app on bare metal servers on Oracle’s Gen 2 Cloud Infrastructure, and it got faster CPU cycles and better IOPS performance than when it ran similar live sporting events on shared virtual machines from other providers. “Even during those peak load bursts, the number of servers we needed on Oracle was half the number we needed on Amazon,” Duggal says.
Delivering great customer experiences on a massive scale isn’t just a luxury afforded by deep-pocket corporations. Because cloud services are delivered virtually on an “as-needed basis,” companies of all sizes can manage ebbing and flowing workloads, without breaking their backs or their budgets.
Below are examples of two more such companies, which share how they’re providing a better customer experience since upgrading to the cloud.
Car-Sharing Goes Green in Budapest
Car-sharing startup GreenGo offered just 45 electric cars to customers in Budapest when it launched its eco-friendly service in 2016. A year later, the company had expanded its fleet to several hundred Volkswagen e-up! vehicles in the city.
Cofounder and managing director Bálint Michaletzky knew the company needed 300 cars in Budapest to reach its profit targets, but what he didn’t know was how the company was going to operate such a fast-growing mobile business.
“We didn’t have the technology infrastructure to remotely track so many cars, open them, lock them up, send invoices, and receive payments,” he says.
GreenGo started running an instance of Oracle Database on a colocated server, but sharing the server with several other companies led to random CPU allocations that would often leave the startup in the lurch. “We’d have customers hitting our app and requesting cars, but the server simply wouldn’t respond,” especially during peak hours, Michaletzky says.
GreenGo now runs its car-sharing platform on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, starting with a two-server setup. Initially, it had one running two CPUs, and the other with four CPUs. After load checks, however, the company opted to upgrade both servers to four CPUs. “The entire double setup and switchover took us less than a day,” Michaletzky says. “If we were still running in an on-premises environment, this kind of an upgrade would have taken us four weeks or more to order a new server, set it up, and then start the migration all over again.”
The company is expanding into the Czech Republic, where it plans to offer 200 VW e-ups! in Prague by the end of this year. “We’re always optimizing, and may need to upgrade from four CPUs to eight,” Michaletzky says. “Even so, we expect to complete the entire migration in half an hour.”
With one instance running in Frankfurt, and another in London, Michaletzky attributes GreenGo’s nearly perfect service availability to Oracle’s redundant networks and power supplies. When the company was running on-premises, Michaletzky says it had multiple network and power outages, which could last up to seven hours. “Everything is dependent on the server,” Michaletzky says. “If it’s not available, our customers don’t have a service.”
On Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, “if anything happens in Frankfurt, we still have London. This is exactly why we went with Oracle,” he says.
Latency Sinks Customer Service
Adlib’s business involves quickly turning huge volumes of unstructured paper files, emails, or images into organized and searchable data. It does so using a toolkit of optical character recognition, automated data extraction, artificial intelligence, and big data analytics, for what it calls an “intelligent data conversion platform.”
But doing all that requires enormous compute power and storage capacity—capabilities Adlib’s own data center didn’t have.
“One of our customers had to process 40 million documents within a three-month period. It would have been really difficult for us to deploy all of that with physical servers,” says Mike Grainge, Adlib’s vice president of product engineering.
Adlib helps companies in highly regulated sectors, such as oil and gas, pharmaceutical, insurance, and banking, quickly bring new products to market, while meeting strict compliance requirements and deadlines. With its platform, Adlib identifies important information from unstructured data, and then converts it into a format that makes it easy to analyze, through a process that can include running it against machine-learning algorithms to help classify the data. Once the data is converted into a “high-fidelity” asset, Adlib’s customers can then use the document to understand, for example, which product ideas and strategies it should develop to enter new markets. It’s also valuable to quickly identify information that’s needed for audits or regulatory compliance.
After hitting a wall in its on-premises data center, Adlib initially migrated to Google Cloud Platform. But communication latency delays that could hit 6 milliseconds or more between different data center locations caused problems. While that might not sound like much, “this amount of latency drove up costs and the amount of resources we needed to meet specific time-sensitive processing SLAs for our customers,” Grainge says.
Last year, the company switched to Oracle’s Gen 2 Cloud Infrastructure, and the time has dropped to about 1.5 milliseconds. “When you’re talking about millions of customer documents, that significantly reduces the amount of infrastructure we need to meet our customers’ processing requirements,” Grainge says.

Construction is one of the most impactful industries to all of us, affecting homes, roads, schools, businesses, cities, and societies as a whole. For the communications industry, construction has always provided a critical piece of the connectivity infrastructure on which we all rely. And now, communications increasingly underpin much of the transformation disrupting the construction industry, which is becoming a testing ground for digital innovation in communications, networking, cloud, AI, machine learning, robotics, analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT).
The immense pressure to be faster, safer, productive, efficient, and cheaper has transformed construction from purely physical to an amalgamation of physical and non-physical. Inspired by the IoT, the boundaries of construction are changing, as with 3D-print cities, AI/ML digital workflows and analytics, cloud-enabled building information modeling (BIM), wearable sensors, Bluetooth-enabled asset tracking, and WiFi mesh networking—all of which are helping to connect and manage an extraordinary amount of “things,” whether machines, devices, tools, and equipment, as well as the human beings operating and relying on them.
The ability to pull in various forms of data and information, and to communicate it in real time is increasingly important as far-flung project teams seek to be simultaneously informed about what’s happening and to quickly understand and adjust for the impact of change. Graphics, drawings and information models must be synchronized to foster real transparency and trust among all stakeholders. The harmonization of information through photo and video sharing, annotation, and chat has greatly improved communications, collaboration, and performance across key areas of construction, including:
- Asset management (number of machines, their performance metrics, locations)
- Materials (sensors that detect the strength and integrity of concrete, steel, wood)
- People (the number of people, their locations, their training, their safety)
The worksites of tomorrow also require high-performance, highly resilient networks that promise reliability and redundancy. This is especially true for construction projects that have a low tolerance for link failures or capacity issues as with bandwidth-hungry construction applications for desktop virtualization and collaboration.
Because of the rapid pace of IoT in construction and the need for better safety, performance, and efficiency, Oracle Communications’ work in 5G, SD-WAN, signaling and policy, network and border control, and enterprise communications will help bring the construction and engineering world into full view, with unprecedented visibility and control through a connected supply chain that will drive performance, mitigate risk and inspire new levels of collaboration.

These sentiments underly everything we do in the Oracle Volunteering program. Every day, we support employees to design and implement projects to advance education, protect the environment, and strengthen communities.
Today, we celebrate Oracle Volunteers as part of International Volunteer Day (IVD).
Established by the United Nations in 1985, IVD applauds volunteers and their commitment to serving diverse communities and causes. This year, the theme of IVD is “volunteer for an inclusive future,” which highlights volunteerism that promotes equality and inclusion.
What does it look like when volunteerism fosters inclusivity? It looks like Oracle Volunteers marching in the San Francisco Pride Parade. It looks like Oracle Volunteers serving hot meals and helping those in need access clean socks and warm coats in Santa Monica, New York, and Bucharest. It looks like volunteers listening to children read a book for the first time in Kuala Lumpur. It also looks like volunteers helping students in Bangalore envision a brighter future by pursuing a career in technology.
Volunteering also has the power to foster inclusivity amongst peers. The Oracle Volunteering program provides employees with opportunities to create deeper connections with members of their team, colleagues from other parts of the business, and their local community.
In Redwood Shores, new hires bonded with their team in Oracle Legal by packing activity kits for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. These kits bring comfort and provide a creative outlet for children seeking medical care. In London, employees from across the business mounted their bicycles for the Palace to Palace ride raising funds to support job training for vulnerable youth. In Tokyo, Oracle Volunteers roll up their sleeves for a half-day every month to tend flowerbeds that are enjoyed by the greater community.
Around the globe, you’ll find Oracle Volunteers lending a hand to support those in need where they live and work. In 2019, nearly 34,000 employees led and participated in 1,500 projects—an increase of 8,000 volunteers from last year. Today, we celebrate these volunteers and look forward to seeing how the Oracle Volunteering program makes the world an even better and more inclusive place in 2020.
