Niche Website Building
- Ranking #1 – Traffic & Earnings Report – NSC Update #3 – This is a really interesting update from Josh a.k.a my opponent in the niche site challenge we’re running. He’s ahead of me so I need to work harder to beat him.
- Podcast 26: How Doug Cunnington Made Over $6,000 in 1 Month from his Small Niche Site – Spencer did a great job interviewing Doug – a project management professional in Atlanta. He’s new to this game but is killing it with over $6,000 from just one niche site in December 2013.
- Using Social Media to Grow a Niche Site: Case Study Update! – Another great post from Spencer. He’s experimenting with buying sites and driving traffic through social media. Really interesting!

SEO and Link Building

- Hacking Facebook Ads – Relevant Likes/Clicks with a Low Cost Read – FB advertising is really a good way to drive lots of targeted traffic right now if done right. I really like this post.
- How to Steal Your Competitor’s Facebook Fans – This is (maybe) a coincidence as Neil Patel also published one article on the same topic that day. Both articles are really good!

Joining the DC Crew in Sai Gon!
I just arrived in Sai Gon (or Ho Chi Minh city) yesterday to attend February Junto – a monthly event for all the DCers around the world to get together and chat about their business goals, life goals, travel goals, all or none of the above over drinks, snacks, etc.
I had a really great time hanging out with cool people with tons of energy. Some pics:
I’ll be staying here for around 4 weeks, so ping me via email or Facebook if you’re in Sai Gon. I’m happy to meet up! I’m not sure if many Cloud Living readers are in Sai Gon though.
