In episode 109 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if the Semantic Mastery team is still using or building Serp Shaker sites.
The exact question was:
Hi Bradley & Team,
Do You still use or Build SERP Shaker sites? And do these seed sites as you refer them stick ?I have been hearing that Serp Shaker sites are getting Deindexed. Could you please direct me in the right way on how to build these sites for longevity. I have been playing around with different Mass website builders like MPC and DR(domination robot).Lead Gadget as you suggest maybe good but it is expensive.I need to start building huge sites and monetise them.if you know about any other platform please let me know.Thanks
Well, at Semantic Mastery, we've used a lot of site builders, including Lead Gadget ATM. It's one way to get more results seen in the search engines without the use of WordPress plugins – it's more of “mass” builder and a way to test what will rank. It really depends on what you want to do and how you want to do it.
If you're going to build these sites, you should consider them a test domain or test site, or a “churn and burn” type of setup, which a lot of people do, while waiting to make your “money site” from a positive result from your build (did it rank?).
There's a lot of ways to monetize these sites, affiliate programs, selling leads you generated or even selling or renting the website to a company in the niche.
