My 24,000 Word SEO Secrets Book – Now Completely Free in a Monster Copy Paste

Warning – this is a ridiculously long blog post. 24,840 words in fact. You might want to try installing this. If you like this post, please pass it onto a friend or share it with a tweet.

I wrote and published “101 SEO Secrets – Accelerate Your Online Marketing” way back in 2012 and sold a few hundred copies. Since then its been buried to the bottom of the Amazon store by hundreds of other SEO books, never to surface again. Instead of keeping all that work locked up in paper, I decided to share it with you all for lots of nice links, tweets and referral traffic.

That said, two years is a loooong time in the SEO field, so not all of it is still relevant. I’ll be tweaking this blog post over the coming months to bring it up to scratch. But still, you can’t say no to a free 24,000+ word book!

I’ve been a casual runner for the past 5 years, bouncing along in a trusty pair of Nike Air Pegasus. Like most runners, I’ve never ‘learnt’ how to run properly and as a result developed lazy form and technique, and have been injured. A lot. Firmly touching wood and not trying to tempt fate (I’ve been reluctant to even write about this) I’ve now been running, injury free, for 1 year. This post tells you how I’m doing it.

Using a distraction-free experiment to deal with iPhone overload

Props to this post for the inspiration.

On the standard morning commute I’m sure many can relate to, the train pulls up and I settle into the regular ride to work. As soon as the train gets moving, I  instinctively reach for the iPhone nestled in my front pocket. I unlock the screen and start the content consumption journey, a trip which can last anywhere from 5 to 45minutes. Continue reading
