Hi! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 4! Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the excellent work!

Ramya Raju Reply

Hi Jai,
I’m Ms. Ramya, a freelance writer/designer from India. I just came accross your website and I’m very impressed by it. Great work! I have a couple websites about webdesign and SEO Training, that I’m currently promoting for myself. I thought we could benefit each other somehow?

If you are interested, I’d be happy to write a very high-quality article about web design, SEO, etc for your site and get a couple permanent links from it? While your website is benefiting from my high-quality article, I’m getting links from your site, making this proposition mutually beneficial.

What do you think about this, please?

Waiting for your response, and please do not hesitate to ask any questions.

Ms. Ramya Raju

Couldn’t agree more Carlos. We have had some wild successes and great failures. SEO is more of an art than science at the moment.

Great job pointing that out and thanks for the guide!

I completely agree with you. SEO is unpredictable and requires constant tweaking. A basic SEO campaign must be folllowed with an industry specific one.

Really nice theme, though it looks that it is like a few years ago in terms of its style. It does not seem to have that nice 2.0 flair. You know what I mean? It is a bit clunky for lack of a better word. But again, it is free .. right? So … so far so good. 🙂

Is there some numbers to tell which methods are most effective?

For example, how effective is the ping service?
It is said if I update my site too frequently, Ping service could block me.

Thanks a lot for the tutorial 😉

I would like to know which is the license in order to translate it to spanish.

If is there aint’n any problem I’ll send the guide traslated to you as well.

The Mad Ape Reply


I read your ebook and found it useful. I had been practicing a lot of the techniques you suggested.

I did add a bunch of the suggested ping sites though. Thanks for that.

May I suggest, as an add-on to this, a plugin from MaxBlogPress.com called Ping Optimizer.

It will prevent pings for edits and pings for future time-stamped posts. These type of pings, when in excess, can get your blog labeled as a spam site.

You can get more info here:

To download it they make you register and view an advertising offer…but it is free in the end.
