Since @macdonjo3 launched his CTR manipulation service I've been waiting for a real review. Not because I give a fuck or I'm excited about it or anything, I just want to see if it works. Unfortunately the only reviews I've seen are from people I've never heard of or blog posts that Josh himself shares... I don't really totally trust anything he's done or shared or I've seen. I'm not calling Josh untrustworthy or anything, but if I created a service like this I would be bias as fuck also. So what are we going to do Over the next few weeks we're going to see the short term and long term effects of CTR manipulation, we're also going to compare it to traditional link building and "normal" SEO. On top of that we're going to have a control test, a web property that will have nothing done to it so we can confirm that the effects of both of these techniques are the reason for any success that we see. How exactly am I going to do this Building this out with being as fair as possible will not be as simple as you think. Building 3 separate websites with 0 authority is time consuming, slow and there are too many variables. So we're going to be building 3 parasite pages on the same platform. I will focus on the following: Everything will be the same, a 1500-2000 word article on the keyword. Use of partial match/LSI keywords will be used in the content. Headers/titles/meta info will be the same Keyword density will be the same They will contain 3 OBL's to relevant authority sites They will be left to age for 2 weeks before we being the CTR/link building The keyword they all target will be the same I can't see a fairer way to do this. There will be 3 properties built: A control that will have nothing done to it, no links, no CTR. A property for CTR manipulation only A property for link building only The money spent on each strategy will be the same, $47 over a month. This is the lowest SERPClix package I will not be sharing URL's until the experiment is over and if possible I will be tracking analytics (to actually see the clicks provided) to see if Josh does anything stupid and provides extra clicks to make sure his service gets good results. I should only expect 107 clicks according to the SERPClix website. The service I use will be a SEO package, I've not looked for one which matches the budget and requirements yet. How are you measuring results When I have built all the properties I will use SERPBook to share the results live, so you can check in and see the exact results you see whenever you want to see them. I will be editing this post and keeping it up to date over time. What do you think, is this a fair test, what can be improved? What do you think we will see?
