Those of you who frequent some of the PBN/SEO related Facebook groups will most likely recognize this name. Yashar is a 16 year old SEO Guru who "specializes in explosive organic search traffic". Yashar has gained a pretty sizeae name for himself, and was even featured on the blogs of a couple of other "Gurus". I was watching one of his interviews [https://m.youtube. com/watch?v=nxEzFlGPcQk] the other day, and the funny thing is, every word out of the kid's mouth is quite obviously bullshit. Even so, everybody in these SEO groups seems to believe his bullshit. Apparently he has financial niche lead gen sites ranked for some big money keywords, and is rolling in the $. Some especially dubious claims made in the interview: -Yashar owns a PBN with over 10,000 domains. -His PBN is hosted 100% free of charge. -Yashar studies until 10pm everynight, and then stays up from 10pm-4am working on IM (he wakes up at 6am). Either this kid has a serious meth habit, or he's lying like crazy. -Yashar once spent $60,000 on a failed IM project (with many other failed $10,000-$20,000 projects). Another thing that's weird, when you go to the previous domain of Yashar's SEO blog [seo. gl], it redirects to Charles Floate's Facebook page. Reasons I'm starting this post: 1. I'm on a 5 hour bus ride. 2. Any excuse to avoid talking to the girl sitting next to me. Discuss.
