    Got it already, thanks in any case!

    Skimmed through this thread, going to re-read everything in detail and start my own blog soon. Thanks so much to everyone (and especially BigRon) to share this much detail! This looks like an awesome community.

    They've put up a video on their Youtube channel. They're selling all their sites.

    Their blog stats are quite disappointing compared to the way they hype them up.

    Also interesting that they aren't selling workprep or their coffee guru site.

    i thought i was click bait at first till i saw the video kinda scary if something is working for you and you are selling it off there must be a reason why they are moving away from blogging

    I'm going off on a random tangent again...

    I've seen people complain about the price of the program at $500.
    But most of these guru programs are $1-2k. You know, the usual $997 or $1,997 programs. They're pretty much all on that scale.
    If signing up to this is what focuses your mind then it's worth it all day long.
    Writing super high quality articles of a longer length is good advice. Going for some lower-hanging fruit for the first 10 is again very good advice. But writing them in an hour is not realistic. No-one is writing quality 1500 word articles in an hour. Even if I'm writing about my own area of expertise (bankruptcy) I'm doing such an article in a day or 2, not an hour.
    Then there's the links. This part of their business gets misunderstood but there is something to say about it.
    They never say links are worthless, rather that your super high quality articles will attract relevant links organically.
    That said, there's firm evidence a few pages earlier right here on this thread that they do not practice what they preach. They have hand-built links on their sites and the ones I have seen aren't even of a high quality.
    The final issue at this point is the utility of Youtube now. They don't have that wrong at all.
    I just get a sense that they don't know where to go next with their business, but the fundamentals of high quality wriiting, gaining organic links from that and using Youtube are good.
    You don't need to spend $500 to learn that but a self-contained program with those fundamentals is not so bad.
    I just don't know where these guys are heading. They are all over the place presently.

    The EAT update really has them going scared I guess i doubt they can continue paying the high number of writers they have in their company when none of them have any EAT on the topic and the blogs are not earning enough for it to make sense to continue hiring the writers i believe they had a writing team company or something like that.
    in the podcast https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podca...-2020-jim-harmer/id1241803091?i=1000461894233 he mentioned that niche sites are no longer the way to go as he say google really serious about EAT. They claim they selling it to start new sites so they are in touch with what new bloggers experiencing who knows time will tell.

    Are they really going to keep in touch with what a new blogger experiences? They've got virtually unlimited cash flow. Years of experience, and are doing this full-time. Not exactly your typical newbie.

    quite a few of their sites were just started in the past 18 months. I call BS on their reason.

    haha your guess is as good as mine xD
    apparently jim was "triggered" to realize that there are gurus in the industry that did not do any new blogs for more than 5 years and they were still selling courses to ppl teaching them how to blog hence he did not 1 to be that kind of "guru" so that their reasoning at the end of the day its their business they can do what ever they want maybe they will add a new course teaching the members how to flip your blog for 6 figures soon haha

    Yeah, they set up and office in Rexburg, ID where they had like 15 computers and desks and we're paying the college students from BYU-I to work for them. I think they sell the writing services for a premium. Not all their writers are writing for the income school blogs. So it could definitely be profitable. Earlier in the thread BigRon said that some people were paying up to $200 for an article. So I imagine there are people willing to pay their writing team.

    To be fair, if you sell a website for 300k , you can pay 20k for a shit ton of articles on andtwo or three sites then drip post them for a couple months and wait. If you did your research right you can get a few thousand a month for each , recoup the cost after and after a year or two sell them for 50-100k each. The rest of the money can sit in index funds and make you 15-30k a year off the growth

    yep they are earning quite a high roi base on that amount best part is they dont have to pay flippa any listing commissions or a cut of 10% of the sale as they are selling to their students or following

    jim is a very smart fellow his not an avg blogger / internet marketer if you hear his backstory he was smart enough to get into law and during his time as a law student he manage to earn 30 to 40 k blogging from this first photography website
