My special guest for today’s podcast is Shane Dutka who has bought, built, and sold a 7 Figure Blog!

Got his start with eCom and bow ties, pivoted to affiliate and pest control, then scaled to starting a fleet of affiliate sites in various niches (jewelry, painting, baby, coffee, etc). Now SEO Director at one of the largest performance marketing companies in the world.

We have discussed Shane’s journey into buying and selling sites. What he learnt about buying sites? What he looks for when doing due diligence on content sites? And how does he audit a backlink profile through due diligence?

Shane and I have also talked about the amount of content you should publish to scale your blog. How to create a backlink-building strategy and what pages you should build those links for? What should consider when selling your business and how you can prep it for sale?

Lastly, Shane shared important things to look out for when buying sites from a broker.
