The Best Of Internet Marketing July 2014

This is the 20th post in the series which shares all of my favourite internet marketing posts from the past month.

There is an awful lot of junk to sort through every month so here are the best bits according to me!

The Best Posts Of July 2014

July has delivered us a fresh set of leaked Google ranking documents along with some really great content from all faces of internet marketing!

It seems that the quality bar just keeps on raising throughout, there are lots of great case studies & experiments to learn from as well.

SEO & Link Building

Let’s get started with the big news of the leaked Google search quality documents which you can download in full right now – that should keep you busy for a while!

With that knowledge in hand you could try link building strategies that don’t require content. Although spam still works.

If you are smart about it you can dominate the industry with spam but make sure you get the basics right & avoid negative SEO.

Blogging & Content

Having the ability to spy on all your visitors is worth it’s weight in gold.

I have also taken a look at CoinTent which makes monetizing blog content VERY interesting.

If you are struggling with traffic try these simple strategies combined with this blogs traffic strategy.

It is easy for anyone to start a blog but what if you don’t want to use text based content in your blogging efforts?

You should also be looking at how to repurpose your content & have a media kit ready to go!

Social Media

Apparently we have better social media tools than intelligence agencys but it does seem that social media is the new black hat!

It really is hard to ignore this awesome Social SEO case study though!

Email Marketing

I published my email marketing tutorial for beginners recently which is perfect for these 17 list building strategies.

If you really want to you can get 100,000 emails in just 1 week – just make sure you are brilliant when you send one.

Traffic & Growth

Learn how growth hack a new site while marvelling at PornHub’s strategy (SFW).

Get a sneak peak at how WhatsApp grew rapidly & fine tune your media buys with this banner guide.


One question you should ask yourself right now is are marketing in the year we actually live in?

    I love the resources Matthew.

    I check out quite a few online marketing sites, but your site has driven me into another more “result ($)” driven kind of online marketing, instead of all the technical aspects.

    And i love the monthly earning reports. BTW, im itching to hear more about your MTTB results!

    At first i was hestitant, but since the program is being promoted by some authoritive people in the business, i’m going through the steps now.

    I started checking out John Chow because of you recently, and immediately sparked my interest.

    Cheers Matthew, i’m following your process on foot!

      Glad to hear that :)

      With MTTB I’m on step 15 about to put the final business plan together with my coach!

    Interesting curation of articles for the month of July! Indeed, these are the best of Internet marketing in July 2014. They are still epic contents and would readily help readers get more excited with different aspects of Internet marketing – content, email marketing, social media, traffic, etc.

    The leaked Google Search quality document readily reveals some of the new criteria the search engine has set for increased ranking! I have downloaded the document and would readily use it for online success!

    I upvoted this post in kingged where it was shared for Internet marketers.

    Love the Gary V video! I turn to him and Jon Loomer for my social media marketing. Have a good one.

  13. Roxana

    You could call this premonition, but those 12 shots of Kamikaze last night were probably pre-celebration for mentioning my social seo case study, Matt.

    Thanks a bunch! It’s sure starting to feel like I’m writing for serps, but for actual people.

    Got a load full of motivation to stay sober now and start writing some more case studies. xD

    p.s. Killer video, how come I missed that out?

    Over and out,

        No sympathy for the devil, apparently. How cruel is that?
        I saw there’s some posts I’ve missed this month, too, so better start reading. It’s 1am, reading mode on here!

    Great list of tips.

    As for me I kinda like social media for marketing because it is a big platform for advertising such as creating fan page or promoting your own sites.

    Although nowadays others may say that Facebook or other social media sites are common ground for marketer it is useful always for promoting and advertising in a large group of people and it can also used as tools for linking your own sites as well…


    Keep rockin’,


    I found this post shared on Kingged.com
