You all knew him.
For a number of years, his blogs netted him well over $25k per month solely based on Adsense .
His 'make money online for beginners' blog was his flagship blog. I estimated he made over $70K a year with just that one blog from Adsense alone.
I loved reading it but one thing always puzzled me. Why did this Grizz talk about how to game Google and get search traffic. He really did !
In fact, I specifically remember a Post where he scraped content from another Blog and used it as his own material to test and prove that you could outrank original material if you had a higher PR and more back links. Which incidentally he had in the tens of thousands!
It befuddled me. Search is still great but it is contrary to what was Grizzly's mantra
( which was stay away from social traffic because it was a bunch of useless tire kickers, ONLY stick to Search Traffic as it was King)
He made fun of Darren Rowse and ridiculed him on a continuous basis, saying his posts were useless and that he would never sustain any real success.
Well, I guess Darren is having the last laugh. ( as gizzly's blog(s) got annihilated by Google and others a while back)
Ahh, those were the good ole days of slapping up Adsense and seeing the bucks roll in.
Long live the Grizz as he climbs back in his cave for a long, long hibernation !
It is funny how the Internet can seemingly change in the blink of of an eye.
We miss you ole buddy.
