    Yeah lying paedophiles don't tend to be liked. If you call a blog that ranks for jack shit, good, one that is full of rehashed Woodward droppings, then I have some magic beans you may be interested in.

    His blog has been manually penalized by Google multiple times so that explains the no ranking part. His recent conference stuff was pretty good though.

    I know why he gets a lot of hate here but if you are willing to look past that, his new stuff is actually good.

    If they don`t have a sales thread with Avengers, Mickey Mouse, Ninja, Aliens, Galaxies and another kind of animals and beast ... in my heart, they are not guru`s. :D

    Really? Semrush says it has never ranked for anything. Penalty or no penalty.

    So he rambles some shite off he has heard around the internet, but ranks for jack shit. Pretty impressive if I must say so myself. I suppose all the ballers feel the need to video men wanking to try and extort money out of them. Yeah yeah yeah. What a guru. Broke ass little kid who doesn't even know when he's lying and when he's not.

    I'd probably not take SEO advice from someone who has had multiple manually penalties by Google.

    His SEO blog was penalized not other websites. Quite a few SEOs have been penalized when they publicly revealed their websites. Google isn't fond of SEOs.

    That's because his blog was personally nuked by Matt Cutts. I totally understand where you're coming from, though.

    As for me, I just like to learn stuff from where ever I can - Charles Floate or Rand Fishkin; doesn't matter really.

    I don't know the guy and don't read his stuff; I do know he had some legal issues related to child porn or some such thing so it is not a personal deal by any means but if a SEO has his own SEO blog penalized several times he is missing something.

    Once I can see... several times is a pattern and if he is doing something to hurt his own sites than I doubt I would be comfortable trusting his advice. If you, as a professional SEO, cannot figure out the issues as to why your own site gets penalized, how can I in my right mind trust that you'll offer the kind of advice that would keep my sites safe.

    Since Neil Patel bought ubersuggest and fuck it up, I hate him.

    Btw. most of popular "SEO gurus" are just talking shit. That's their job.
    They are talkers, I hate talkers.

    Come on mate. That is quite simply diarrhea dribbled from Charlie's lips. He really isn't as big and important as he would like to think. He's just a laughed upon clown who is caught out on his shit talk time and time again. The kid has serious mental issues (megalomania) as found in his court case. He is a fantasist and nothing more.

    I have been following him for some time. His blog was penalized because he was outing a lot of blackhat stuff on his blog openly which prompted Matt Cutts to personally deindex his blog from the SERPs.

    I understand where you are coming from but I do find his advice helpful and one of his affiliate sites actually had decent rankings (I personally checked it).

    The people that are truly good at SEO, especially blackhat are busy making money that way. The people you see as gurus are just "fake it till you make it" kind of people. Most of them at least.
