Bank has established operating rules and security procedures for accepting payment orders, including both standard and additional procedures as set forth in Attachment A to this Wire Agreement (collectively, the “Security Procedures”). If Bank receives a Transfer request or instruction (each, a “payment order”) in accordance with the Security Procedures, it will be conclusively deemed authentic, Bank may rely on it and Bank is relieved of any and all liability in connection with the Transfer or Transfers reflected on that Transfer request, whether or not it was authorized. You are responsible for the accuracy of the initial communication of the Transfer request as well as the accuracy of any documentation or callback of the request made by Bank.
You will be given a temporary password that will give you access to Cash Management Services for your Accounts and Loans.  You will be prompted to create a new password at your first logon attempt.   This password can be changed within the cash management system using the administration menu.  We recommend that you change your password regularly and you will be prompted to change your password at least every 90 days or other interval established by Bank in its sole discretion.  Bank will act on instructions received under your password.  For security purposes, it is recommended that you memorize this password and do not write it down.  You are responsible for keeping your password, Account and Loan numbers and other Account and Loan data confidential.
How trustworthy is your website? Are you getting a lot of backlinks from high-quality websites or is your website virtually irrelevant to Google and other search engine robots? Are you distributing your posts across different platforms and are people sharing them on social media? Domain authority is the third element of the ‘holy trinity’ of securing organic traffic.
If prior to the date we provide you a copy of or notice regarding this Access Agreement, you and Bank were parties to a prior version of this Access Agreement, then this Access Agreement will replace such prior agreement after you use any Services or provide any instructions provided for in this Agreement following receipt of a copy of or notice regarding this Access Agreement, which receipt will be deemed to have occurred the earlier of (i) 5 banking days after Bank sends a copy of this Agreement to your email address of record with Bank or posts this Access Agreement online or (ii) the first time at which you utilize the Services after such notice.  Exhibits, schedules and other attachments to the prior version of this Access Agreement (and the previous versions of the Schedule Agreements) with customer-specific information, and customer-specific information incorporated into such previous agreements, will remain in effect until Bank and you agree in writing upon replacement exhibits, schedules and attachments and information, respectively.
incredible post and just what i needed! i’m actually kinda new to blogging (my first year coming around) and so far my expertise has been in copy writing/seo copy writing. however link building has become tedious for me. your talk about influencing influencers makes perfect sense, but i find it difficult for my niche. my blog site is made as “gift ideas” and holiday shoppers complete with social networks. i get shares and such from my target audience, but i find that my “influencers” (i.e etsy, red box, vat19, etc.) don’t allow dofollow links and usually can’t find suitable sources. I guess my trouble is just prospecting in general.
A spin-off for web designers is to offer a landing page creation service. Well-optimized landing pages can be the difference between a successful and a failing business. And, as creating the perfect landing page isn’t easy, this is a service many businesses are prepared to pay for. I know people who are earning 6 figures per year and all they do is create landing pages for businesses. There’s serious money to be made.
If you need to mark more words, make them bold or use other heading tags from H2-H6. Repeating the same words many times, what is called keywords stuffing, will not help you much, it can even heart you if the SE think that the page is spam. No need to repeat words more than few times, Google and other SE are smart enough and will get the idea for what your page is about. Also don’t try to the other thing of limiting your words count, just be natural.

Eliminate bad backlinks. As indicated above, not all links are good for your domain score. That is why you shouldn’t get obsessed about the number of backlinks but instead focus on the quality of those links. To clean up your SEO score, identify and get rid of any bad backlinks pointing to your domain. Yoast has actually created a great guide on how to do just that.


One of the things that can slow-bleed the traffic from your site is the quality (or lack thereof) of the content you publish on your site. Previous Google updates like Panda have already been released specifically to deal with the issue of low-quality content on websites. Long story short: Panda intended to stop sites with bad content from appearing in the search results.


If you do not have sufficient funds in the Account to pay disbursements, fees, or any other amounts due under this EFT Agreement at the time required, or if you refuse to pay, Bank may (a) debit any Account at Bank or the account of any of your affiliates to pay disbursements, fees or charges, or other amounts due, (b) refuse to process originating entries, in which case the liability will become your sole responsibility, (c) refuse to perform further Service, and/or (d) immediately terminate this EFT Agreement. Bank may recover from you any costs including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expert witnesses’ fees Bank may incur in connection with any termination of this EFT Agreement or collection of amounts due hereunder.


My company has been working on a large link building project. We’ve already performed extensive keyword research and link analysis and now we’re considering executing an email outreach campaign. However, all the content we’ve created up until this point is geared more towards our target audience as opposed to the key influencers of our target audience. Do you think it would be worth it to try to build backlinks to our existing content or are we better off creating new content that directly appeals to the influencers of our target audience?
Salvage and resell. Do you love antiques or have a knack for finding valuables at flea markets or yard sales? If you do, it might be time to consider salvaging items for resale – or even scouting out antiques to sell for a profit. While you’ll need to spend quite a bit of time searching for prospects and spend some money buying upfront, you could easily turn a profit if you know what you’re doing.
Creating a jobs board website can be another profitable venture. The ‘jobs’ field can be quite saturated, so it is important to find a niche that is still crying out for a jobs board website. Monetize this type of site by charging businesses to list their jobs on your site. Those searching for jobs could also be charged a fee to access the higher paying job adverts.

Holly told me she started writing content in 2011. At the time, she still worked a full-time job but created content online part-time to supplement her income. Over time, she was able to double and triple her rates until she could quit her full-time job to write. These days, she makes bank as a freelance writer and teaches others to do the same via her online course, Earn More Writing.
In the screenshot below, we searched for information for the keyword “Types of Leather” using Ahrefs Link Explorer. As you can see, the top ranking content mostly consists of blog posts. That means people like to read about different types of leather. In other words, there is a realistic chance of ranking content organically for this keyword, provided you come up with better blog posts than there already are.

Protecting Personal Information. In addition to protecting your Account and Loan information, you should also take precautions to protect your personal identification information, such as your driver’s license, Social Security Number, etc. This information by itself or together with information on your Account or Loan may allow unauthorized access to your Accounts or Loans. It is your responsibility to protect personal information with the same level of care that you protect your Account or Loan information.
This Remote Deposit Capture Agreement (“Remote Deposit Agreement”) governs your use of the Remote Deposit Capture Service (the “Service” in this Remote Deposit Agreement) in association with your Accounts (also referred to collectively as the “Account”). By using the Service, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Remote Deposit Agreement and all exhibits, schedules, appendices, addenda and other attachments hereto, which are part of this Remote Deposit Agreement. In the event of a conflict between the terms of this Remote Deposit Agreement and the terms of the Access Agreement, this Remote Deposit Agreement will control to the extent of such conflict. The terms “we,” “us,” “our,” “River City Bank,” and “Bank” refer to River City Bank. “Customer”, “you” and “your” refer to the party in whose name an Account is maintained, each signer on an Account, and all owners of that Account. The term “Access Agreement” means the Online Cash Management Access Agreement between Bank and you to which this Remote Deposit Agreement is attached.
Another good thing to look at is domain authority and core page authority. If your site has had a few redesigns, moved URLs, or anything like that, it’s important to make sure that the domain authority has carried over. It’s also important to look at the page authorities of your core pages. If these are much lower than when they were before the organic traffic slide, there’s a good chance your redirects weren’t done properly, and the page authority isn’t being carried over through those new domains.
You must pay Bank and Bank may, without prior notice or demand, obtain payment of all fees, charges and other amounts due to Bank for Transfers and for following related instructions, as well as any out-of-pocket costs incurred by Bank in carrying out the instructions given by you pursuant to this Wire Agreement, by debiting any Account, on the day Bank transmits the Transfer request, the date you submit the Transfer instructions to Bank or on such other date as is agreed to by Bank in writing.  You must pay Bank the fees for the Services provided by Bank hereunder according to Bank’s current fee schedule, as it may be amended from time to time.
There are numerous printing companies that will print your designs onto not just T-shirts, but also hoodies, hats, posters, cushions, bags, and phone cases, to name a few items. These businesses also offer fulfillment services. This means that you promote the merchandise on your own site and once you sell a product the printing company will not only print your design but also send the item directly to the buyer. So all you have to do is concentrate on the marketing and selling of your products, and the fulfillment company will take care of the rest.

Brian, great post as always! Question: Do you consider authority sites (industry portals) a form of “influencer marketing?” e.g. guest blogging, etc? In some niches there are not so many individuals who are influencers (outside of journalists) but there are sites that those in the industry respect. I am in the digital video space and for me one site is actually a magazine that is building a very strong digital presence. Thanks, keep up the good work!
The term “organic traffic” is used for referring to the visitors that land on your website as a result of unpaid (“organic”) search results. Organic traffic is the opposite of paid traffic, which defines the visits generated by paid ads. Visitors who are considered organic find your website after using a search engine like Google or Bing, so they are not “referred” by any other website.
Improving organic traffic can sometimes be challenging, but if you apply the correct SEO strategies, the hard work will eventually pay off. Search engine traffic is great because it’s relevant and targeted. For most websites, organic traffic converts much better than traffic from social media or other sources. Another great advantage is that visits from search engines are much more consistent.

Go to local events or Meetup events and connect with bloggers in your industry. An example of an event I run to connect with bloggers and people in the online marketing word is: http://www.meetup.com/Online-Marketing-Sydney/. Make friends first and then try to gain guest posts later. I am not really a fan of websites which are flooded with guest posts one after another; it is the type of thing which Google is just waiting to target.


Great list! I have another to consider that I personally have 35+ years experience providing. Clean up litter outside commercial properties on foot using inexpensive hand tools. It’s almost as easy to do as going for a walk! I started doing this as a side gig in 1981 and soon grew it into a profitable full-time business. I share my experience in my book, Cleanlots.
