    Hey,

    Friend of mine gave me his PR5 blog, said he's done blogging.

    His ranking is 100% white hat, he never did any SEO even.

    The blog consisted primarily of his favorite books?... and reviews.

    What to do? Do people still buy books[​IMG]?

    The only condition was not to recover his old blog posts/reviews.

    He's going to try to sell the reviews or something, so he needs the exclusive rights.

    This makes it even harder. Will probably lose a bit of ranking.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I know that there's a great deal of buzz around kindle and there are desperate authors out there who need a good review of their book, and they're willing to pay for it.

    From what I've seen when I did my own research, with a blog of this sorts you can market the following:
    - amazon affiliate links to the books
    - reviews (like 10 dollars a pop) on the site and on amazon/kindle (request a copy of the book or make sure you download the book when it's free so that the review looks legitimate)
    - proofreading/editing services (these guys were asking like 30 dollars for 10k words)
    - selling links (on the hush though, as this doesn't go well with big G)
    - Interviews with authors (basically the authors will have to pay a fee to get their interview on your site and a link to their book/site)

    Hope this helps.

    PR5 doesn't say anything.
    How much traffic is he getting?
    You can try to sell some related links.

    You could perhaps rent some links from the homepage.
