Win Free Access! (1)

Win Free Access! (1)

Competition is Now CLOSED!

Sorry, but you missed your chance…


  1. August 7th, 2010 at 6:05 am

    Hi Shane,
    If I was lucky enough to win your competition, I would use it to promote my Hubpages Articles and the niche websites and article directory that I have set up since I started out on my internet adventure in April.
    Why did I start my adventure? Because my Dad passed away this March and both he and my mum (who died three years ago), died of complications with Dementia (Alzheimers and Vascular Dementia) so I wanted to find something to keep my brain busy, busy, busy! Now, I am well and truly hooked on writing and have been trying so hard to learn about SEO, keyword research, site promotion, link building and everything, but there is so much conflicting information out there!
    The information you have given in your introductory videos and free downloads has been absolutely brilliant, straightforward, easy to understand – even for an internet newbie like myself. If I can understand it and utilise it and make money by doing so, ANYONE can!
    Why should I win your competition? Because you have such a fantastic product that I am really excited to share it with other people (which I have already started to do on my hubpages articles and to a few of my email contacts), I want to promote the product first and foremost because of the quality of what I have seen so far – and if I am going to promote it to others, I should be using the whole Backlink Battleplan package myself, not just the amazing free stuff I have already benefited from!
    I wish you HUGE SUCCESS with Backlink Battleplan,

      Hi Alison,

      Thanks for your reply!
      It sounds like you’ve been working hard on your online business and I’ve no doubt it will pay off in a big way for you!

    Hi Shane!

    PART I
    I’m going to promote web 2.0 properties that I create targeting various keywords. These web 2.0 properties in turn promote affiliate offers.

    Why do I deserve to win more than anyone else? Simple, I am the first the one to comment here… anxiously waiting for your email about this contest to come in! :D

    Immediate Action Baby!!

    Plus, I am an ex-army man… what else would be more suitable for me than a product named Backlink BATTLEPLAN. Right, RIGHT?? ;D

    Be More…

      Hey Andy,

      Awesome reply! (although you didn’t quite manage to nab the first spot)
      Army discipline plus Battleplan equals awesome results, I’m sure of that. :)

  3. August 7th, 2010 at 6:08 am

    Hi Shane, firstly I have downloaded all of the content you have posted and I am working my way through it systematically. As a newbie who has just had surgery I been told I will not be able to work for some considerable time (and I was self employed) I want to use the internet to promote a few ideas I have. I have already started with a site called Just 4 The Planet.
    As a qulified golf coach I want to provide a site that is rich with instruction content that is free, but will promote some well researched recommendation for equipment, books etc: I believe anyone can play golf off scratch and would like to help golfers to do it. I have a blue print started but with your keyword tutorial I want to check a few things out.
    I will use your battleplan to ensure my sites a ranked and I follow the correct internet way.
    I am only as deserving as anyone else who trys to win this comp I have certain priciples about this inrternet thing and believe in giving before recieving.
    From what I’ve seen you follow the same priciples, thats why I am following your progress.

    Keep up the good work and many thanks

      Hi Paul!
      Phew, the Golf niche is really tough. But the flipside of that is that there are TONS of people in the niche and once you establish yourself, you can hit it off big time!
      I wish you all the best and the necessary endurance for building a strong presence in the Golfing world!

    Hi Shane,

    I will be 65 one month from today. I have no retirement money set aside anymore as my old wife is divorcing me and taking it all with her.

    So, to have any money I must learn how to build some profitable websites/blogs in a hurry and each site I set up needs to have a wicked number of back links, don’t you think? After all this is my retirement security we’re talking about here.

    As a young boy it was drummed into me to always, always respects your elders. Remember, 65 next month – that alone should tell you what a hell of a great guy I am and why I aught to be #1 or at least #2.

    It has been a pleasure doing business with such a fine young man as you, Shane.

    Respectfully, (unless I don’t win)

      Hey Stephen, very cool reply! Conditional respect is the best kind, don’t you think? (just like conditional love, really…)

      I don’t know about making a buck in a hurry (that’s always a slippery approach), but yes: Building cool websites and backing them up with a strong backlink-network never fails.

  6. August 7th, 2010 at 6:36 am

    Hello Shane,

    I will be brief and tell you exactly why do I want to win this contest.

    Of all the Internet Marketers, inclusive the big ones, I find your free products very professional and I don’t imagine how your premium stuff is.

    So I want to win this contest because i cannot imagine what is your premium product, I really think it will be great. On top of that, I have read about how to create a site, SEO, social media but your Backlink Battleplan is something I haven’t heard or read until now.

    Actually this is the only product on backlinks that I have watched. With this I think that my niche blog and personal blog will get some good ranking. On the other hand, this will get me an advantage on my work.

    I happen to be a vicepresident of a student association (ELSA) on the marketing department. We’re just working on our website, and this program will make good use for sure.

    In the end, let me win, or the bunny get’s it :p

    All the best,

    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 2:08 pm

      Hey Clawdel, nice touch with threatening a bunny, at the end! :D

    Hello Shane I intend to use it to promote my web site a quick back ground in 2007 I was a successful contractor until I had two back to back heart attacks 90 days apart the first year I had a hard time walking more than a block but after time I started to get better I have been in contracting my whole life so I don’t know much else
    I started to study the internet trying to find something else to do but I always drifted back to contracting so I thought since I will never again hang drywall all day I can still work four or five hours a day before I start getting tired so I came up with my handyman service short small jobs than I am capable of doing I have studied my butt off on marketing but as you well know you can quickly go broke doing it I started with keyword research had a good teacher I used Micro Niche Finder notice the name of the web site Google loves it when your key words are in the URL I have the Best Spinner and yes it is with out question the Best I also for some time have used the free ASHelper article submission tool great tool thank you so much it’s as good as many of the paid tools out there but I as most people have always linked straight to my web site not the link strategy you teach my web site is only five months old and already I am starting to get a little business here and there it is hard to compete with the big boys but I am slowly getting there I am not even sure how I got on your mailing list but how ever I did it was a God sent I have learned so much already from your free information Shane whether I win or not I just want to personally thank you for all you have given so far
    I can’t speak for anyone else but I have become so tired of the me me me supposed to be Gurus that beat you to death to sell worn out two year old crap that no longer even works what you have given away is better than what most sell and for that I want to say thank you

    I would very much like to win your contest this is the missing piece of my puzzle and you are right about being steady with your marketing I have been, and it is slowly starting to produce results I am starting to rank for the key words handyman services but to be competitive there are many other key words I need to rank for I know I can be back to work full time if I just stick with it for a year with your help it could be much sooner

    Hi Shane, If I win the Backlink Battleplan I plan to use it to promote my main money site, as well as a brand new custom WordPress blog. The idea is to see how quickly I can get the WordPress blog to rank using your plan vs the 18+ months it has taken my other site to climb the rankings. A kind of living proof the Backlink Battleplan works.

    The reason I deserve to win more than the other guys is that, first, I have already spent three sleepless nights watching your videos, installing various software (it’s been tricky on the Mac), studying the cheatsheets, and implementing your program. I was up until 5am last night, 6am the night before, and 4am the night before that (not to mention the fact that it is 2am now) in an effort to understand every nuance of your videos and free giveaways. No doubt my level of dedication in implementing your Backlink Battleplan is unparalleled (okay, I admit, it’s even a little obsessive!) but by virtue of your producing such ridiculously compelling videos and instructional content, I am now losing untold quantities of sleep. In other words, you kind of “owe me”, Shane. ;-) All kidding aside, I love your videos, your crisp, concise instructions, and I think I would make the best ambassador for your Backlink Battleplan by virtue of my dedication to implementing everything in your program in its entirety no matter how sleep-deprived it causes me to become. ;-) Also, if you pick me I believe the ranking of my new WordPress blog will rival that of my main money site in a fraction of the time previously spent – and it will be entirely thanks to you!! Fingers crossed, Jolenta

    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 2:13 pm

      Great reply! To be fair, I’ve also not gotten too much sleep lately, what with making all these videos and so on. So I think we’re actually even on that front. ;)

      Great to hear that you’re so dedicated. That’s exactly the right attitude!

  9. August 7th, 2010 at 7:08 am

    Hello Shane

    I’ve been following you for quite some time now and I’m impressed with the constant good quality stuff you put out. I’m well established in the wedding speech niche and would like to use your battleplan to increase my sites ranking and dominate the niche.

    All your info is well laid out and easily doable and I’m sure it will make a huge difference in the links and traffic to my site. I never use PLR and have writtten all 31 page of content myself. It is my first site online and I honestly need your professional Battleplan.

    For me it is more about quality than quantity and I intend to build 5 high quality sites and devote all my time and attention to them.

    My next site is going to be a site which promote the concept of “ubuntu” and there will be nothing to buy and it would just be a site about how we can make the world a better place, look after the planet and help and support the eldery, children in need etc. Ubuntu” is an ancient African word, meaning “humanity to others”. Ubuntu also means “I am what I am because of who we all are”. …

    II would be delighted if I win the competition.

    Kind regards

      I think that the long-term approach you’re taking, with the goal of building 5 high-quality sites, is a really great one!

    I would love the opportunity to win the backlink battle plan which I would use to help me improve on my seo techniques, I run a small seo company.

    I deserve to win because I would really make the most out of the opportunity, in fact if you googled “happier than a really very happy thing” I bet my name would come up because that’s how happy I would be :D

    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 2:16 pm

      hey Bertie! I think we’ll have to wait for Google 2.0 before sites get ranked according to emotions. :D

  11. August 7th, 2010 at 7:16 am

    Hello Shane,
    Thanks again for the good stuff you’re giving away for free. I have already subscribed to some internet marketing programs (paid ones!) and the training you have given away up to now is not less than those ones.
    I think the best thing to do with backlink battleplan is to setup highly optimized microsites (from 5 to 10 pages each) with targeting keyword in the URL and promoting one product on each site. Nonetheless, I’d prefer to build a more generic site (lets say and include many products either using subdomains ( or simply building new pages (; I’m not sure what is better of the two options…
    Well, about deserving, I don’t know what to say :-) I don’t deserve much, I guess, possibly other people deserve the prize more than me :-) .
    Thank you again and greetings from Spain
    PS: By the way, I’ve seen the emails come from Winthertur. Do you live there? I learnt German in that city when I lived in Schaffhausen several years ago!

      August 7th, 2010 at 2:17 pm

      Hey Jordi, wow the world is indeed a small place! I grew up in Schaffhausen.

      • August 7th, 2010 at 8:47 pm

        A small world indeed! We were there in 1986 – 1988. Maybe we met sometimes (without knowing) at the Vordergasse, though I assume you were quite young at the time :-)

  12. August 7th, 2010 at 7:27 am

    Hi Shane
    If I was chosen to have access to the back link battle plan I would break through the learning curve that I have found so difficult – especially in the area of traffic.

    The material you have already given freely is so helpful and to have access to the full plan would be really great. I would use it to promote my review and product sites.

    As to why I should get this opportunity – you may be held responsible for not giving an advantage to the aged!!

    I am in my senior years and need to use my time wisely to learn as much as possible in the shortest time so you need to consider this as an extreme warning!!!

    Anyway – thanks for the great content already gained and I look forward to having this special access granted in the near future……’s hoping????
    Kind regards

    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:59 pm

      Hi Bev, thanks for your reply! Wow, you make it sound like you’re about to topple over any instant… way to put the pressure on me to pick you as a winner. :D

    August 7th, 2010 at 7:31 am

    Hi Shane

    It’s been good getting to know what you’re all about through your videos after getting the heads up from Martin Avis about this launch

    I’ve checked out your other stuff too and got value from that too

    On that basis I expect your BB product will be effective and good quality – for that reason I’m having a shot at the prize

    1. I’ll initially be using BB to continue getting my niche product site higher in the rankings – as soon as I have some traction I will set up a product review site in a niche I’ve already researched

    2. I deserve to win the prize because right now I have already implemented some of the strategies you teach – what I am lacking is literally a methodical approach – er – a ‘battleplan’. Right now I’m spending long hours randomly getting backlinks with fingers crossed. In summary I deserve this becasue I am using the resources I’ve already got to the best of my knowledge and ability and ready to get more organised and implement a more sustainable longer term approach – Backlink Battleplan fits with my own goals and I’m ready to run with it now

    If I was to win and BB contributes to my success you will have gained an evangelist – I offer to provide any feedback/help you may need to develop the product further and provide a case study for future launches.

    3. Ok, why me and not others ? all I can say is I’m not jumping from one thing to another – my main goal right now is getting backlinks (I’ve tested my conversion funnel using adwords and my product sells) and organic traffic. I will not lose interest as soon as the next product launch comes around. I will put the time in to apply your strategies and use the tools as directed and keep you in the loop regarding results your systems are helping me get…


    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:58 pm

      Hey Glen, by not jumping from one thing to the next, you’re already on a better path to success than many, many people in IM. Well done on that!

  14. August 7th, 2010 at 7:35 am

    Hi Shane,

    I’d use it to promote every single thing that I do on the internet from now on. What you’ve shown here for free, leaves me in little doubt that what will follow, will be nothing less than awesome.

    All the best with it.



    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:56 pm

      Hey Gary, thanks for your comment! It’s great to get positive feedback like this!

  15. August 7th, 2010 at 7:51 am


    Your videos are so crisp clear and to the point. Your content is superb. I am entirely grateful to have watched them and been given the chance to implement your strategies.

    It is strategy that is the reason I deserve to win a copy of your product, ‘Backlink Battleplan’ (and of course, the other secret prize.).

    You see, I’m no longer able to work a 9-5 job due to a congenital heart condition. It’s been 3 years and have little savings left. In a desperate attempt to learn everything I could about Internet Marketing, I find I have spend much more than I should have and now have a serious financial condition which requires a rapid influx of cash to solve. In a few weeks, Gary Gregory’s ‘My Online Business Strategy’ will launch. I m convinced that the combination of MOBS and Backlink Battleplan is my ticket to earning living once again. In the few hours each day that I am able to function, I will be able to boost my sites to the #1 position in Google and earn enough to survive long enough to help a few more people.

    From what I know already, the KEY is proper keyword research. Finding the right phrase to the niche where people need help is what it’s all about. If I can’t find them, they can’t find me, and I can’t help them. Please help me help them by ensuring I can help myself. Send me Backlink Battleplan on Monday. Thank you Shane, for all you do.

    • Shane

  16. August 7th, 2010 at 8:09 am

    Hi Shane,

    I’ll bet there’s been a rush on hiking boot dot coms in the last few days!

    I have a few questions regarding backlinks, that I know you’ll have the answers to.

    With the free ASH, which I’ve used extensively since you handed it over, some of the directories don’t allow html, they say it will be automatically stripped out. When that happens, you end up with a URL with a keyword after it, but how does that make sense, where does the anchor text come from in that case? Does that still make a backlink to your site?

    Below is an example, it appears in ezine articles with a clickable link and the keywords mercedes benz for sale, but it appears as below in having had the html stripped out.

    When you’re next in the market for a Mercedes Benz, you will not find a better deal than here at

    What is the relevance of the keyword box, does this somehow get tied to the URL? Sometimes they say keywords must be no more than 3 words long, what should you do with the long tail keyword in that case?

    Keep busy.



    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:54 pm

      Hi Gary,

      Don’t worry about those. A backlink without anchor text is still a backlink! You still get some “link juice” from it and it will help you improve your ranking.

      Keywords don’t have to be 3 words long, but it’s a good rule of thumb to select longer keywords (because they tend to be less competitive). I mention this in my keyword research training as well. But you can use as many or as few words for your keywords or anchor texts, as you like.

    Hey Shane,

    Ok, I’m extremely sleepy right now as it’s now 4:04 AM here in the US and I just decided to check my email before I go to bed, so if tehre are any typos or misspellings here please don’t crucify me.

    Plain and simple, I will use the backlink battle plan to promote my first viral ebook that I’m almost finished working on.

    I’m hoping to have it done by the time, or even before you launch your porduct… just a little motivation for me :)

    I wish you much success with your launch.

    Thanks for the videos,

    Paul Facey

    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:51 pm

      Ah, nothing like some all-nighters when you’re working on a project, eh? I hope your ebook will go viral and spread to the far reaches of the internet like a zombie apocalypse!

    August 7th, 2010 at 8:57 am

    Hey Shane!

    Thanks for all the great info and for topping it off with this COOL contest :)

    I do marketing consulting for local businesses, and I can see this tool helping me improve my off-page SEO efforts. I plan on using Backlink Battleplan to help me with a client’s squeeze page that I created 2 months ago. Good news is, the site is on the first page of Google at #8 position, sometimes even #7 for one long-tail keyword. Problem is, the site is only getting about 1 to 2 visitors a day. If I can implement an effective backlink strategy, I can improve the site’s position to increase traffic.

    So why do I deserve to win? Well, because if I win, small businesses like my client will also win because I’ll be able to help them get more business. That in turn will create more jobs. Now those newly employed people will have more money to spend on other businesses, thus causing those businesses to grow. Before you know it, the entire economy of the world will be better just because I won!! Cool huh?

    It all starts with you, Shane. You hold the key to the entire world’s economic recovery. So watcha gonna do??

    I know you’ll make the right decision :)

    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:50 pm

      Hey Kim, you sure know how to put the pressure on someone.

      But thanks for saving the economy for us. I would do it, but I’m too busy right now. ;)

    Hi Shane,
    I just want to thank you for the material you have sent out already. I didn’t leave any comments on the previous days, but I have been following along and enjoying and implementing what you have shared so far.

    I have only been in internet marketing for about a year and have been doing some article marketing and am starting to build some mini niche sites. I would be using the Backlink Battleplan for those things. I would really like to increase my back linking strategies and see if what I have put out there will convert and bring me some success.

    I don’t have a lot of extra time so anything that will help in my overall efforts would be a true blessing.

    As far as why I deserve to win, well, I can’t really say I deserve it but I think that the reason I should win is this….

    I am a mom of six young children and when I even get a chance to touch the computer I really need to be investing my time wisely. I can’t waste 1 minute doing unnecessary tasks and your plan would help with this (I can just tell due to all of the direct teaching you have already given for free!)…..My success is my family’s success and I can tell you that I feel that your Backlink Battleplan would be very much appreciated here!

    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:48 pm

      Hey Joy, wow a mother of six? That must be a handful! More like several handfuls, actually…

      Definitely a smart move to be looking towards automation (and perhaps even outsourcing, at some point?), to help you leverage your time.

  20. Johnny

    August 7th, 2010 at 9:49 am

    Off course there are plenty reasons why you should give the prize to the people who commented before me…I mean Alison has lost her parents. But judging from here profile pic on hubpages, I think that she is mature enough (no offence intended) to deal with the loss and she probably has kids and grandkids of her own. I on the other hand am 29 years old. I lost both my parents two years ago, one month apart from each other. One being sick and one being in a tragic accident. I also experienced my older sister fight a wining battle against cancer. I myself had a benign tumour removed earlier this year. So if you are looking for drama…oh! Boy do I have plenty of that!

    Paul wants to save the planet. Well so do I have a blog about green living and I write about green living on hub pages and Squiddo.

    Madison homes has spent countless hours downloading videos, well so have I , I have watched every video in your series so far and have commented on the first one saying it is the most comprehensive and effective video I have seen. The tip about the Article submitor saves me nearly two hours a day. I used to manually submit to directories myself.

    As for Jordi. Seems like he’s not quite sure why he deserves the plan.

    No offense intended to any of the other commenter’s. Off course we all do deserve this but here’s why I think I deserve it more than the others.

    I was retrenched from my job a year ago. I began writing on hubpages, just few articles a day…and I was doing it of someone else. I did this for a year without remuneration until February this year. I didn’t know much about SEO but I did love to write and the person who I ‘worked for ‘had been pulling the wool over my eyes.

    I quit in May and began researching and reading more about how internet marketing works. In the last three months I have tripled my content and I now have now earned a successive $700 a month income. It’s not a lot but I am learning more every day and it’s a big jump from a 0 income.

    How did I do it? Well I work 7am till 11pm six days a week, sometimes seven days a week. More specifically I have done this in the last two months. I now have four niche blogs, I write on hub pages and squidoo. I learnt basic HTML. I also build my own links, research keywords, build my own sites. I am also a husband and a dad.

    Working 16 hours day six days a week is not the best but I do it because I have to earn a living…and beacue it is all unfamiliar to me I probably spend more wasted time than productive time. I would like to access the Backlink battle plan because I would like to know how to work smarter in addition to working hard.

    Your video is excellent and I have no doubt that they will help me work smarter. I don’t expect a miracle but I am hungry for new knowledge about this internet marketing business. I’ve only been in it for two months now I am sure that there is a lot to learn!

    Irrespective of me winning or not I think your videos are awesome and I will spread the word regardless.

    All The best

    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:46 pm

      Dude, $700 is an excellent start! Many people who’ve been doing this for months (even years!) wish they could make that much…

      Keep up the (admittedly long and hard) work and you’ll see ever greater payoffs as time goes on! And soon enough, you’ll be able to reduce that workload and still keep the cashflow going.

    Hi, If I win backlink battleplan access I’d actually be using it on my mums site,

    And why I should win is because she is in her 50′s now and had decided to change career and pursue her dream of being a counselor and to help people, after studying for 3 years to get her qualifications now she has her own website. I would use backlink battle plan to help move her site up the rankings for counselling searches and hopefully help her grow in her new career choice and give her a fighting chance of driving new business as well as to allow her to help other people who are looking for help in this point of their lives too.

      Great reply, Gareth! It’s awesome that you’re helping you Mum out with her business and I wish both of you all the best on your ventures!

  22. August 7th, 2010 at 10:45 am

    Hi Shane,

    If I would win access to BacklinkBattlePlan, I would promote my niche sites with the techniques you are teaching. I new to internet marketing, so my sites don’t have a lot of traffic yet and your product could help me to increase my rankings and get a lot of traffic to my sites. That would be very cool! And thats also the reson why I deserve this program: I’m new to this game, I want to learn, I want to be better, I want to succeed with the sites i build the last months and I want to quit my normal job and do this all fulltime, so I can help my mother to retire, because she is ill and can’t work anymore.

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:39 pm

      Great cause, Waldemar! Stick with it and you’ll succeed, I have no doubt about that.

  23. August 7th, 2010 at 11:13 am

    Hi Shane.

    I’m going to be using Backlink Battleplan on my niche affiliate sites as well as my main Marketing Blog.

    That said, I have discovered some truly shocking and top secret uses for Backlink Battleplan that even the gurus don’t know about. But hurry, as I can only let you have this information for the next 10 minutes before it’s taken down forever.

    Backlink Battleplan is so much more than a killer product, it can be used for:

    * Making your teeth gleam like freshly fallen snow.

    * Removing those impossible stains on the carpet from your last out of control party.

    * Doubling your IQ in less than 10 minutes.

    * Getting six pack abs without all those troublesome exercises.

    * Learning a new language in less than a day. Bellissimo!

    * Improving your sex life with the bonus six point battleplan.

    * Write a blockbuster novel.

    * Obtain the obligatory red sports car and trophy wife.

    Disclaimer: The above results are representative only and may not reflect your actual results or even reality.

      Oh no, Peter! You let the Guru-secret out!

  24. August 7th, 2010 at 11:32 am

    Hi Shane,

    I really do need the backlink battle plan, I am getting married in Oct 2010 and have promised my fiancee the finest wedding that money can buy, this is money that I should of earned thru internet marketing, so as it stands at the moment, the finest wedding money can buy is going to be in a shed at the bottom of my neighbourgs garden (we don’t have a shed in ours).

    From what you have shown me for free so far is incredible, I dare say the information you have given would be worth quite a bit of money, I have implemented all of what you have told me, I have 50 articles that I have to upload to the article directories, which all point to my blog/website, it takes time but I truly believe that all this will work.

    I am looking forward to the last video and hopefully winning the BIG prize.

    Cheers for now.


    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:37 pm

      Great stuff, Mick!

      I gotta say, though: SEO is a slow process and Backlink Battleplan is not one (read: yet another) product that promises you riches by next week. It will, however, get you reasonably fast results in terms of rankings (no miracles, but fast results).

  25. August 7th, 2010 at 11:38 am

    Hi Shane,

    Well, I would like to access your material to improve rankings on my current niche sites and start making some real money. I’m not new to this and I do know a lot of tricks, but I am always looking for new ideas around backlinking and have enjoyed your videos so far.

    Why do I deserve this more than anyone else? I don’t. But I’d like it anyway.

    But here is my best attempt at a feel-good story. See, we just bought a new house and money is a little tight. I was laid off a few months ago and am trying to replace some of my income online. So far I’ve replaced like 1% or something – wow. Anyway, this new house has an old, ugly kitchen. It’s from the 1980s. Not good 80s like The Police, we are talking Milli Vanilli here. (Of course if you are a closet Milli Vanilli fan I’ve just slit my throat, but I took a chance anyway).

    So with your program I will start digging in and get my site’s ranking and earn enough money to get a decent looking kitchen that doesn’t make me want to go back to big hair (that’s an 80s reference by the way). By awarding me with access to your program, you Shane can help rid the world of one more ugly kitchen. It’s really a win-win for both of us.

    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:31 pm

      Awesome, reply, Carrie! You’ll get rid of that Milli Vanilli kitchen in no time!

  26. August 7th, 2010 at 11:44 am

    I’M GOING TO USE IT TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!! (in my best Pinky and Brain voice) :->
    I used to watch that cartoon all the time. It’s great!

    Ok, so maybe I won’t be able to take over the world. However, by using Backlink Battleplan, my plan is to use it to take over whatever market I decide to attack. I’m currently in a sub-niche of the dating niche. I’m also in the midst of creating a whole bunch of websites designed to drive traffic to sites that sell physical products. I just started these projects a couple months ago. I’m building one site at a time, and then moving on to the next site, building that, and then rinsing and repeating. Then, I’m planning on returning and executing my “Battleplan” for building backlinks and getting each one of the domains that I just built out ranking #1 for up to 3 main keywords.

    If I was lucky enough to get one of the 3 free copies of Backlink Battleplan, it would be perfect timing. I should be done, or very close to being done, building out my sites, and ready to start pushing them up the SERPs for their main keywords. From my keyword research, some of my main keywords should be relatively easy to get to #1 or #2 in Google, while others may need a bit of work and some Backlink Battleplan “Special Sauce”!

    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:29 pm

      Now that is a noble cause!

      Sounds like you have a great plan set up and I’m sure you’ll be successful with it.

  27. August 7th, 2010 at 11:45 am

    Not being in a position to properly promote the simple elegance of what you are providing here, because I am so wrapped up in helping Luz get set-up, all I can say is like I stated before to you.

    For the first time, I had an “Aha! moment where it all became crystal clear and made sense. [Quite frankly, the 'link-wheel 'concept slap wore me out!] The other stuff just sounds too close to getting into the spammy-swamp for my taste.

    I have received more than I paid for. That is rare. I would be quite willing to stick with you and pay for my ride – I know the investment will quickly pay for itself!

    Rock on brother! and thanks for all you do!

    Grateful Al

  28. August 7th, 2010 at 12:53 pm

    Hi Shane

    Nice forest, what would I use the backlink battleplan for? I would use it to get 2 of my sites onto page 1 of Google

    Like some of your other contributors I’ve been watching and acting on this from the start, it’s made a real change from the usual online offering, not full of hype and it’s actionable

    Judging by the click through rates from my blog it’s interesting to quite a few people in the Online community

    Does it do all the things Peter Sundstrom says? hmm, by the way Peter steer away from the Trophy wife or am I just becoming a grumpy so and so, who knows?

    Keep up the good work Shane and don’t forget to send me my “Backlink Battleplan” on Monday Thanks Tony

    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 1:25 pm

      Hey Tony,

      Of course it does everything Peter said. I just didn’t want to let the cat out of the bag (cat and bag only included in “Backlink Battleplan – Feline Edition”).

      Good to hear that you’re already taking action. That’s the number one most important thing that leads to success.

  29. August 7th, 2010 at 2:13 pm

    Hi Shane!!

    I’m so glad you asked! My wife is a talented up and coming writer; I am starting to seriously pursue my passion of painting and together we work with a group of friends who design and build websites for people in similar positions to us. Basically I will be using the skills I learn here to help young talented people get the exposure that can help them go full time on their passions. I have some big dreams resting on skills here.

    Everything so far that you’ve taught me so far in the videos has answered specific to questions I’ve been researching elsewhere; it’s like you can read my mind! Confusing topics like keywords that I’ve been wrestling are all of a sudden clear. It makes me feel very confident. I can only imagine and fantasize that the whole will be as illuminating as content you’ve released so far.

    Art and web design and freelance writing are such competitive areas for SEO that I really need the Backlink Battleplan edge. We have such wide eyed motives with this….no get rich quick ideas or products with inflated values. We’re looking for exposure and we are in it for the long run. Be our patron, Shane!

    Keep up the awesome work

      Hey Edmund, that’s a very cool project you’ve got going, there. No doubt it will be a long-term thing, but it’s an awesome cause and you could end up making a huge, positive impact on many people’s lives! I wish you all the best with this project!

  30. RAY

    August 7th, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    Mr. Shane,
    Wow! I hope you’re not going to use a lie detector test on this comments?

    Well, let say your free videos taught me a lot and I have not paid attention like this since my primary school days. Your ideas are simple, clear cut and they Rock!

    I will not bore you with my invigorating story of life on the internet as defined by google and currently strangled by the search engines; but if you are thinking of picking someone that truly deserves the “BATTLE PLAN” then chose me because after so many pitfalls of false ebooks, software pretenders, search engine plans, failed marriages, run-away girlfriends (because i am not rich yet), I can formerly comfirm that I have been declared broke!

    I have built many, many websites and have seen some adsense clicks and in search of a plan on how to start getting traffic. Boy was I in for a shock when I discovered that the adage “BUILD IT AND THEY WOULD COME” does not apply automatically to any website. Several of my websites recieved one visitor and was i shocked to find with was my ex girlfriend checking to see if i made it big online yet.

    Yes! Your BATTLE PLAN will assist me in finally getting my fingers inside google wallet and hopefully, I will be picking up real money and not the chump change that i currently get. Pick me because i want my girlfriend back as rejection by all is the worst offense.

    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 5:04 pm

      Hey Ray,

      the question is: did you pay attention in primary school? (I sure didn’t.)

      I would never have thought that Backlink Battleplan would mutate into a “get your ex back” product, but so be it. :D

      • August 8th, 2010 at 4:05 am

        Shane, I am just loving all your thoughtful, individual replies, especially the funny ones. This one really takes the cake though!!

  31. August 7th, 2010 at 3:26 pm

    Hi there,

    1) I would use BLBP to promote my one and only site http://www.face-skincare-tips. I’ve done the whole blog/minisites/everything else and have decided to build one large site which I have just regisered as a self-employed business.

    I am a mother of two young sons and they are growing up too fast and would love to be able to afford to take them snowboarding in Austria/Switzerland and to Disney Land in USA before they grow up! This can only be done if/when my website is a success.

    2) This is a hard one! Emm Emm Emm – I deserve this more than anyone else because I’ve been trying to make a success on the Internet since, I’m embarrassed to say, 1998 and I think that its about time somebody give me a break. BUT I’ve never given up and never will even with or without winning this competition!!

    Thank Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 5:07 pm

      Hi Claire,

      Very cool! Great to see someone working on one authority site, rather than mini-sites. Not that minisites don’t work, but it’s just the more common choice.

      Good attitude you’re showing, too! Keep it up! :)

  32. August 7th, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    Well Shane, I’m a bit slow getting to this stage, it’s taken me so long to leopard crawl through the woods to catch you, it was a darned sight easier hiding behind the white sheet!!

    I am also grateful to Martin Avis for putting me on to this, he knows I’m an ex-Army man so reckoned I’d have my bayonet sharpened ready to implement your Battle Plan as soon as it burst from it’s secret vault! Little did he guess just how keen I would become through just this one afternoon of catching up with your material….. it’s very well delivered and simple to follow (AND you respond to queries with even more in depth help!).

    Hardly strange you should say you’re not yet a Guru – I think we guessed by the amount of help you provide – not just a series of partial titbits leading to yet another higher tab product!

    When/If I win a copy of your Battle Plan I’ll hold an Orders Group with myself and determine a priority list of tasks – but included will be (wake up at the back of the room there!!) : –
    1. Monetise and Promote/Link my two Blogs which are getting under way (Major Reviews).
    2. Promote and continue building my three Health/Fitness and Weight Loss sites (which I am using to also follow myself and keep my ancient boddy in trim)
    3. Then develop my longer term passions in Renewable Energy and Recycling with my Earth Crisis Domain – and my commitment to Self Improvement on a Shoestring for those that need it most but have least to spend on achieving any.

    Ok, so the O Group may run over the usual 5 -10 minutes, and may include a few “Battle-Beers” …….. but what the heck – THIS IS A LIFE CHANGER!!!!

    Thanks for the help, this is one old Grandpa that may be able to move into my new status of “Old Age Pensioner” with a spring in his step and a worthy Pension Plan to follow – sock it to me Shane!

    Thanks for the simple yet highly effective videos!

    If I was to win the backlink battleplan I would use it to promote my niche consumer sites as well as the sites of the offline businesses that I have setup. Also I deserve to win more than anyone else as I am striving to make this my new career and having a solid backlink strategy is going to help me establish a good business so I can give up the day job sooner.

  35. August 7th, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    Hi Shane

    Looking god so far! Really looking forward to the roll out. I’ve been following this all week and it’s really grabbed my attention – especially the Apple ‘inspired’ white background. I knew they should have patented that!

    I have one main site promoting a few beauty products that is my main focus at the moment. I am using a few methods of promotion and have just added your great new techniques – I like free methods! I am using a company that is promoting my site using SENuke and SEO Link Vine, I use Free Traffic System – free version ;-) I also have Sick Submitter and Scrapebox. This week I have also produced a video and have been submitting to various video sites, once again to provide a variety of backlinks.

    I do have a few smaller ‘sniper’ type sites that are targeting low competition keywords with CPA network products. I use the above methods to promote these also but not as vigorously.

    I have been looking for additional means of creating backlinks for a while, looking at Xrumer blasts etc and even full time employment for a personal backlink builder. It seems you can actually hire someone full time for some pretty good rates.

    Your Backlink Battle Plan, judging by the great free content you have provide so far, could be the ideal solution. It is SO important to make sure that there is a broad variety of quality backlinks pointing at your sites. That’s why Xrumer doesn’t quite do it for me – too spammy for my tastes!

    Why choose me? Ask my wife…. She’s finally understood the potential of my many hours of IM labour I’ve been putting in! Woohoo! My objective is to help her drop one of her three part-time jobs and have more time at home to look after our two kids. I want to work on a solid plan to produce a long-term business with lasting results and not just a quick buck here and there.

    Well.. pretty standard stuff really, I suppose. Anyway, good luck to all of you who have entered (and a little bit more to me!). Ans best wishes to you Shane for a successful product launch.


    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 5:21 pm

      Hey Lyndon,

      Looks like you’ve been studying backlinking for a while already. You could definitely use the Battleplan system to train an employee/outsourcer and have them build the backlinks for you, if that’s the direction you want to take.

  36. Steve

    August 7th, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    Hi Shane,

    Since I never win anything, I feel like I can be totally frank and say the opposite of what most people who post will say. It really won’t make a difference anyway. First of all, I’m not a newbie and I get tired of all the newbies out there in newbie land who cry the blues of having no money or needing some kind of “system” in order to see success.

    You probably have a good program, but if someone thinks this is the answer to their lack of success online, they’re in for a rude awakening. It takes a few bumps, roadblocks, and wasted dollars spent on the “next great product since sliced bread” in order for someone to finally break through and start seeing success. The reason is because they’ll finally come to the realization that once they stop investing in the latest and greatest, and FOCUS on ONE method of making money, they’ll finally see results. There’s no magic to it. I’m sure this isn’t the politically correct thing to say, but oh well. :)

    Being a newbie isn’t a bad thing. But being a newbie and getting on the guru treadmill is. I went through it also back in 2001/2002. Most newbies do. Just look around. There are always gurus around with their hand out looking to make sure you lose your focus. That’s their job. So if a newbie wins your product and they don’t experience success right away, off they go to buy the next guru product with dollar signs in their eyes. I just hope that if they win your product, they take consistent action with it and avoid distractions. Lack of action (regardless how good a product may be) is the main reason why most people (newbies and veterans alike) make very little money online.

    Anyway…I don’t need your product shane although as mentioned I’m sure it’s a quality product based on the videos I’ve seen. But one thing to keep in mind when deciding who the winners are is that at least by giving your product to 3 people who are full time internet marketers, you can be sure they’ll do something with it. You don’t make a living online full time unless the person has a track record of taking action and keeping their focus. And since they’ll surely apply the strategies that you teach, they’ll see results and therefore provide you a nice testimonial which will help you sell more product. :)

    It would be ashame for three newbies to win and have it sit on a shelf somewhere collecting dust. Just something to think about. I’m sure with what I just said, I won’t win and that’s fine with me. :) But I hope the winners use your product to its fullest potential.

    Take care and good luck with your product launch. Have a good day.



    • Shane

      August 7th, 2010 at 7:28 pm

      Hey Steve, definitely a very “controversial” comment. Actually, it’s just unusual.

      I agree with you on most points. Lack of focus really is a killer in IM. Actually, scratch that. Lack of focus is a killer for any kind of venture, any kind of project and any kind of goal.

      I also hope that everyone who wins and everyone who buys the Backlink Battleplan will really put it to use and follow the strategy for long enough to see real results. And I’ve done my best to make this product as easy as possible to follow and implement. The entire product is designed to make it easy to take action on and to give you as much focus as possible.

      At the end of the day, however, it’s up to the individual and I cannot force anyone to stay the course.

  37. Tom

    August 7th, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    Hi Shane,

    Like every other newbie here, I’ve been blown away by the awesome content and free give-aways that you passed on to us here.

    At the moment, I’m suffering from information overload as there is soooooo…. much information to comprehend that I’ve decided to start all over again.

    My PLAN for internet marketing is firstly to promote traffic to my current business website ( and then try to create new websites to make money outside of my current business.

    Your PDF file on wordpress has given me the info I needed to utilise wordpress to its maximum in creating new websites as landing pages linking to my business and affiliate promotions.

    Article Submitter Helper is just the ideal software I needed to give me the backlinks I need to improve my pageranking on Google.

    The process will involve….creating articles relevant to my products, submit them to the list of directories as well as, as many authority sites as Ryan Diess suggested, get traffic to my landing pages, with links to my business and other products.

    I think I should be chosen as one of the three to win Backline Battleplan because I am a goal orientated person who likes to achieve what I set out to achieve.

    It is not in my character to succeed on someone else’s misfortunes, but I do believe that the rest of them can fight over the other two spots…hehehe

    All the best to everyone, and keep up the great work Shane.

      August 7th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

      Hey Tom, thanks for your reply! You’re not alone with the information overload thing, believe me…

      I like your determination and if you keep with it, there’s no doubt you can make it happen.

    • August 8th, 2010 at 1:08 am

      This is just a quick advise for Tom:
      1. Reduce the number of distracting emails, especially from IM senders (aka gurus) you get everyday to 1-2 most imporatnt for you.
      2. Buy product: Affiliate Organizer to keep track on everything you are doing.
      3. Put most of your time and money to learn and implement traffic generation related methods/skills on one your site. (You just need 1 website to make you successful online.)

      So, traffic, traffic and one more time traffic!

      Good luck,


      • Tom

        August 8th, 2010 at 8:34 am

        Thankyou for the great advice Alexander. “Affiliate Organizer” sounds a good move right now.

  38. August 8th, 2010 at 1:25 am


    As a full time IMers I trully understand the importance of having traffic generation and convertion skills for anybody trying to make a full living online.

    So, based on your pre-lunch campaign and the quality of the free giveaways, I “suspect” that your product is really good quality and will be very useful for everybody – newbie and experienced marketer.
    And what I like the most – it is about traffic generation – the hardest thing to learn and achive in online marketing.

    I wish you all the best and good start with your new promissing product.


    • Shane

      August 8th, 2010 at 5:25 am

      Hi Alexander,

      Yes, traffic-gen seems to be a sticking point for many online marketers. Backlink Battleplan will certainly help in that regard, for anyone who follows through with it.

  39. August 8th, 2010 at 1:51 am

    After month of crazy promise and mabey a thousands of dollars of different promise of glory, I fell very luck that I have found your program. Just of what you have given away is worth more then most of the information I have found. I am building min sites of products and other information products that I believe in. Right now mostly is baby products that I have used or friends have that I know is great stuff. I have been in sales for more then 25 years and now have taken on selling and marketing on line as the next step in my carrier. At one point I did own my own PUB in the WA state that was the 1# Gunnies and Boddingtons seller while all the micor beer crazy was going on, yet I know good things will always win out over flash.
    I feel that the path I am on now with my wife by my side (after trying many things) is is the right one for use. The approach to the min sites we are doing are much like your teaching, I have no need for back hat, I don’t want to trick anyone, just good information and product for those who want it. I fell there is soooo much BS that when something like you have shown me already makes me full l of “spread the word “ energy
    Would I like to win , WELL YES !!!, but what you have given away is so much more valuable then tons of other things I have seen I fell that you have give away a whole program already, and for that I would like to say “Thank you “ ( rely not sucking up or kissing your a#$), and I look forward to see this program and posable adding to my list of products I believe in and promote.
    Best of luck

  40. August 8th, 2010 at 1:57 am

    Hi Shane,

    I have been an internet marketer for sometimes now and frankly I have purchased many SEO products on the market. Unfortunately after using them I I have not been able to find the result which I have expected. Sometimes you can see your keywords on the first page and in a week it can drop massively which is very frustrating after huge amount of effort.

    I deserve to win this contest because as I am in a very competitive niche such as the hotel industry I will be able to test your product intensively and find out if really your product is bringing result. Nowadays there are too many SEO products on the market and everybody claims that their products can bring massive traffic. Unfortunately when you start using them you will be shocked by the result.

    I deserve to win this contest more than anyone because I don’t do internet marketing for my own benefit in order to get massive amount of money. My main focus for doing internet marketing is quiet different to some other people’s point of view. I always wish that one day the business that I have put online succeed so that I can help some charity institutions in some third world countries. There are so many orphans kids without education, without clothes, food and water .I really wants to help some of them if I got the means. Hope one day this dream will realize.

      Yes, seeing a well-ranked page drop off all of a sudden is very frustrating and it can happen sometimes. The issue is usually so-called “link-velocity”. If you keep up a steady pace with your link-building, you usually don’t run into issues like that.

    I would like to start by repeating what everyone else said, your information so far has been amazing – and you are very geneorous for giving so much incredible content away for free – THANK YOU!

    If I were to win Backlink Battleplan, I would use it to build my ranking for I want to get my site ranked, as I believe that the product, Simple Focus Plan can truly help people get there businesses focused, and help them to be successful. The number one problem facing most busineses is that they do not have a plan for their business. By using Backlink Battleplan, I hope to get my information in front of as many eyes as possible. The economy in the US is still struggling, as well as other parts of the world. In Michigan, it is very tough, and I am working hard to do my part to reverse the trend.

    Thank you again for your amazing information, and I look forward to your launch! Good Luck.

    Plan your work. Work your plan.

      Hey Rob,

      Thanks for your comment!

      It’s true that focus is an incredibly important component to success (online or -off) and I wish you much success with your own product!

    Hi Shane,
    I have more sites to promote than I have time to build back links for. The sad part is that I don’t make any money from those sites either…or maybe I should say yet.

    Why I deserve to win…hmm. I think that we get what we deserve in life and I haven’t done anything (except tweeting and this comment) to win your program…meaning that maybe I don’t :-) . However it would be a great bonus as the cash flow is negative in my family right now. We are both unemployed and trying to get enough money from Internet marketing to make a decent living.

    Good Luck with the promotion of Backlinkbattleplan!

      Hey Erik, thanks for your reply!

      Concentrate on one site and one easy keyword. Watch the ranking of your site and take note of how (and when) your link-building affects it. Once you’re on page one and getting some traffic, move to the next site and/or next keyword.

      Believe me: One at a time will get you there MUCH more quickly than if you spread your efforts across a ton of sites.

      Thanks for your comment!

      I will be asking for money at some point, by the way. Just want to make sure that everyone can benefit from this and everyone can get to know me a little bit. before. :)

    Hi, I would use the information to promote a new business that creating to do with importing French champagne into Australia My wife and I are really passionate about the concept as we want to bring more boutique champagne into Australia rather than the high marketed brands. I am blind (use talking computer) and really enjoy customer service and ecommerce. Thanks, Dale.

      Hi Dale!

      Wow, boutique Champagnes! Now there’s a niche!

      You’ll be the Gary Vaynerchuck of Champagnes, down-under, no doubt! :D

    Hi Shane,

    Started out with online marketing using microniche sites earlier this year. Pleased I came accross your videos and appreciate the free stuff, I will be using it over the next few days.

    You have confirmed my recent thinking and that is backlinking is the most important part of getting the top spot in Google. But not only backlinking, but the right backlinking.

    To top it all, it seems to me that Backlink Battleplan will provide a strategic plan along with how to do it, not just what to do.

    I have limited time because I run a offline business which I want to replace with online business, I realise this can provide me and my family with an income forever, provided I work at it of course. I’m not afraid to get my sleeves rolled up and I will use Backlink Battleplan for all of my microniche sites and for any other that requires a backlink strategy.

    May not be the best reason for my winning but like they say,

    You gotta be in it to win it!



    • Shane

      August 8th, 2010 at 9:06 am

      Hello Ray,

      Awesome stuff! Backlinks usually work really well for micro-niche sites, as those often don’t requre that much promotion before they hit page one. Of course, you need to build more of them, to get good traffic volume, but it looks like you’re up for that!

    Hello Shane,

    Genuinely, your material and presentation are some of the best I’ve seen for a long time. You “Tell it as it is” (my approach) and your marketing has to be good because Backlink Battleplan has long been needed.

    Why should I win before others? I have just started a year’s plan to build and promote two small websites per month and your Backlinks Battleplan will surely be well-used. it’s a necessity.

    Stay safe,


    • Shane

      August 8th, 2010 at 9:07 am

      Hey Derek! One year plan? Wow, you plan further ahead than I do! In fact, I think you plan about 364 days further ahead than most of us… and that’s a real asset for your business.

      • Derek

        August 8th, 2010 at 9:11 am

        Hi Shane,

        I was the same as everyone alse until a few days ago. I have to build the sites, I’ve got no choice – I have a mentor :)

        Best regards,


  47. August 8th, 2010 at 11:24 am

    Hi Shane
    Sounds like a great product.
    and I would like it because it might make me look as if I know what I am doing.
    I have been doing all sorts of things for several years now.
    It is only lately that I have stopped believing in magic
    and come to the realization that you have to do some work
    like submit articles and visit blogs and forums leaving comments.
    Best wishes
    Thank you

    • Shane

      August 8th, 2010 at 12:16 pm

      Hi Eamon,
      seems like most marketers are in the business of selling magic, so I can’t blame you.
      Magic buttons, fairy dust and big dreams… those are big commodities in IM.

      Good to see that you’re on the right track, now.

    Hi Shane,

    Great vid’s – nice to see you getting outside – I thought for a while you were imprisoned in that office for Spaming the entire inhabitants of Switzerland with dodgey self help tips… Anyways, if I was fortunate enough to win I hope to help promote a range of DIY videos I’m currently filming.

    I would suggest I win the access because if I dont win I’ll be that angry, you’ll be needing the best ever BATTLEPLAN!


    with MY kindest Wishees,

    Battleplan Man Dan

    Hi Shane,

    first of all, thanks a lot for all the stuff you already put online for free, it has opened a totally new vision about backlinking.
    I have been trying to make money with internet for a few months already, and I managed to make a few bucks. So far I can cover my hosting and my autoresponder almost every month. I have blogs nobody seems to read and websites without traffic.
    I have read tons of internet marketing e-books saying oposite things. I liked your approach so far, simple to understand and clear to implement.
    I would put your system at work right away to boost what I already have but also and mostly to start new sites, doing things the proper way from the very begining.
    I know I deserve to get your program for free.Firstly because I do not have money to spare and I do not think something so valuable to be cheap. I am 53 years old, bald, and with no social security coverage. This alone should be a good reason. English is not my first lenguage so I don’t really know if I can get funny or even gracious, but if most internet marketers were we would know by now.
    Point is , I need to make real money with internet “now” and I have the feeling that your teachings and systems are going to help me to do so.
    And well if I don’t win, I will keep using the free stuff, I shall be very sad but I promise not to commit suicide, I may get drunk of sorrow though.
    Looking forward to use Backlink Battleplan.
    Here is another email you may use to tell me that I won:

      August 8th, 2010 at 12:29 pm

      Hey Gerard,
      Being able to cover some of your costs is a good start! You wouldn’t believe how many IM’ers never see a red cent!

      Also: Thanks for not threatening to kill yourself if you don’t win. It’s a considerable relief.

  50. August 8th, 2010 at 1:30 pm

    Exceptionally easy and good info on backlinks.Of course i would the same to promote my newly set websites and see how the battle plan works. The info obtained thus fas was very easy and exceptionally good information. Have put into action too see the results. Wouldreally would like to win the competetion

  51. August 8th, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    BTW, I have stumbple upon a good joke I want all of you read and just remember do not do the same as in this story to your online business. Enjoy:

    A man walked into a cafe, went to the bar and ordered a beer.

    ‘Certainly, Sir, that’ll be one cent.’

    ‘One Cent?’ the man exclaimed.

    He glanced at the menu and asked: ‘How much for a nice juicy steak and a bottle of wine?’

    ‘A nickel,’ the barman replied.

    ‘A nickel?’ exclaimed the man. ‘Where’s the guy who owns this place?’

    The bartender replied: ‘Upstairs, with my wife.’

    The man asked: ‘What’s he doing upstairs with your wife?’

    The bartender replied: ‘The same thing I’m doing to his business down here.’

  52. August 8th, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    Hi Shane,
    As a newbie in internet marketing, I found the videos easy to understand. It has pointed direction to search engine ranking. I think my online business will start to take off using tis great stuff.

    Many thanks, Shane.

  53. August 8th, 2010 at 2:55 pm

    Hi Shane,
    If I won your program I’d use it to promote my guitar based blog (that will hopefully be monetized with Ebay products soon) and my Amazon childrens bedding retail site. I would also, eventually, use it to promote a make money online site that I jumped the gun on and started building without a product of my own to promote, because I am new to this and didn’t really know what I was doing.
    I think I deserve to win a copy of Backlink Battleplan because I have been unemployed for a year now and I’ve had to try to learn internet marketing by searching our any free info I could. After probably a hundred false starts from listened to the bits of info the “gurus” give you before they ask for a million dollars to give you the rest of the info, (Any amount seems like a million when your unemployed) I think I’ve pieced together a good idea how it works.
    I’ve had info overload for months and I can actually feel my hair turning gray. Not to mention the kids being out of school for the summer and driving me insane. The way I’ve been doing this, it’s like trying to learn brain surgery from a ripped up text book in the middle of a hyper active day care center. I need to win because I really need to make some money with my sites so I can finally buy a much needed beer or 20.
    As far as why the other guys shouldn’t win, there’s already enough wieght loss sites out there. : )

  54. August 8th, 2010 at 5:43 pm

    Great material in here to date. Nice work!

    I don’t deserve to win – I just want to. :)

    In fact, if I win, I would ask that you please give the prize to Elmien van Vuuren. I like what he is going to do with it. It’s something I would prefer to do if I had time (but I don’r).

    Good luck to everyone!

    I would use the backlink battle plan on all of my spam websites to help them rise higher in the search engines so i can dominate the word. The reason I feel that I deserve to win is because us spammers are just a misunderstood bunch who need a chance to prove ourselves that what we are promoting are things you actually need in your life and not just annoying junk that clogs up inbox’s and blog comments. :)

  56. August 8th, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    Hi Shane,

    Well, I’ll give this a shot though the last thing I ever won was a lawn chair 32 years ago at an employee picnic when I was 18. Actually, that was was also the first thing I ever won! Not for lack of trying, though. :)

    I am going to use Backlink Battleplan to launch and propel my stagnant website out to the internet community so I can help more people live high quality, healthy lives. There are so many hurting people out there battling cancer, heart disease, obesity and other killer diseases that are in need of help and education. I want to help as many people as I can.

    Why do I think I should win? Well, I don’t think I am any more deserving than others. But the reasons I would like to win: I am and have been unemployed for 7 months now after having lost my job because I defended the rights of my nursing staff and stood up against a powerful administration. Unfortunately, I lost the battle but at least I kept my self-respect. And maybe losing my job was really a blessing as it led me to working more on my website.

    Besides the unemployment and being a single mom, I have 19 year old twins leaving for college this month and a 13 year old with me here at home. I am frantically trying to get a home-based business so I can be here for my daughter.

    Thanks, Shane, for this opportunity and good luck making your decision!
