    So, I have neglected my famous and often critized non scientific backed case studies.

    Well, here I go again to beef up the stupid shit I post and hopefully crack your day up a bit, what you SHOULD and NOT be doing..

    Ok.

    Setup is like this:

    The last months, I tweaked my 40+ Sites down to 13... I dont have the time anymore to waste brain juice 25 of 5 pages affiliate sites and 2k vistors monthly, that make like 100 $ total a month..

    However, ALL those 13 Sites are INTerlinked in the FOOTER via NAKED urls.
    Yeah, the "famous" site wide footer link wich URL Anchor. Just like http://www.bestproducts.com/

    Though insanely high UR/DR stats in ahrefs, like 2/3 of those sites got the "stuck on page 2" issues. So I thought: what is connecting those 2/3 sites?

    -same IP
    -same Host
    -same owner (ME!)
    -interlinking
    -WEAK backlinks outside the interlinking.
    - all of those points, I would recommend to WATCH OUT FOR. Sadly I made them in the past, believing that WF 7$ "Build great content" crap..


    I dont believe in any sitewide "penalty or stuff" cause 1/3 of those sites really rank nicely, and make me a living poor and amazon richer every month..

    however, some dont rank at all.

    So. plan is to REMOVE all footer links and wait (!) at least 6 weeks and see what will happen.

    I suspect the problematic 2/3 sites might lose some rankings. But WTF if #25 > #35 I will still get not traffic.. or money$ .

    But you never know. I suspect the already "good" sites will not be hit.

    Will I lower my monthly earnings? you bet.

    Will I give a fuck? You bet.

    For each of those sites, I will chose 1 keyword to monitor on a daily bases (although I monitor keywords weekly on all sites).

    So, now it's time for work!
