Colin McDougall Bio

Colin McDougall is a former student of James Martell (who has released the popular Affiliate Marketer’s Handbook and actively teaches affiliate marketing strategies). Colin is an expert in search engine optimization and has built a six-figure affiliate marketing business. With his experience, he began teaching his strategies to help other affiliate marketers build a successful business.

Colin McDougall Detailed Overview

Colin is known for his success in the credit card offer market which is one of the most competitive markets on the Internet, consistently having his site rank in the top 10 rankings for many competitive keywords. But after having his websites thrown off the top Google rankings, Colin had to take a step back and figure out a different SEO strategy. A few months later, he coined the term VEO – Visitor Enhanced Optimization.

The whole philosophy of VEO is to present your website to help your visitor experience and to build your rankings naturally over time. Colin argues that the days of building tons of massive backlinks and pages filled with over-stuffed keyword text are gone. The best way to get consistent traffic from the search engines is to grow organically and keep your visitors happy.

As many people know, top search engine results could mean thousands of dollars to marketers, which is why many are driven to do whatever they can to stay ahead of the search engine algorithms and use all the tools they can find to win with SEO. Over the years there’s been text link markets, link farms, reciprocal linking, PLR content, spun content and other strategies to help boost rankings in an unnatural manner.

Colin also supports quality content over spun and poorly outsourced content that is so prevalent in the search engine results. If you write good content that offer value to your visitors, your visitors will reward you buy subscribing to your newsletter, clicking on your recommendations, and actually listening to what you have to say.

Colin McDougall Reputation

Overall, I agree with Colin’s advice on focusing on the visitor and building your site naturally. His philosophy has never been important as Google has penalized webmasters with the duplicate content penalty and webmasters that were actively buying text links from brokers. Who knows what they’ll come out with next to punish webmasters that offer little or no value to search engine users?

The one thing that I think everybody should know is that while the VEO philosophy is something to keep aware of, you will still need to actively build links, content, and optimize your site. The point is to start building 10-20 quality pages a month rather than 100 spam pages a week, start out with a few backlinks rather than send 100-200 once you launch a site. He is not advocating that you stop any kind of SEO strategy to get more exposure in the search engines.

Right Ideals for Writing

I really commend his point of view on writing content and promoting your site and/or business. It seems that now-a-days so many people are so caught up on simply writing in accordance with SEO language and the like, that they lose focus of the actual point of the writing in the first place. They are more worried about getting their stuff to pop up in search results, but they fail to realize that much of what they are putting out there isn't something that anyone will actually want to read and thus follow their site or buy their products. With Colin's method and VEO, he puts the viewers and readers back to the forefront of the marketer's mind and teaches that with good, quality writing and content put out there, the people, following, and money will come.

That being said, I don't think one should throw all the SEO concepts completely out the window, but your writing shouldn't come off looking more like spam if you expect people to read your thoughts and actual believe what you have to say and respect you. The fact that Colin has been able to achieve so much while being 'black listed' by Google, does speak a lot to his knowledge and dedication. I like his principles and feel he is genuine with everything he promotes. He writes very honestly and frank and makes it easy to understand and implement his methods.

Colin Shares His Knowledge

It seems to me, Colin shares his knowledge, which is great for the Internet community. There are those that don't share good information, for whatever reason.

His new search engine optimization method, adds relevant and organic content to any website, as opposed to some unscrupulous way of optimization.

He continues to grow, and share what he learns, not just about making more money for himself.
