CCarter Weekly #12 - How Will It End?
« about: 3 years ago »

How will this end?

I was really excited to launched SERPWoo, shit was bananas. For the first time in a long time SEOs were going to have a complete advantage over SEO Bloggers, SEO journalists, and most importantly Matt Cutts. The army was being built up quickly, the SW army swelled to over 200 the first week and at the moment hitting the 3 week anniversary two days ago, we're already at 600+. Problem is as you recall once Matt Cutts got a wind of SERPWoo he decided to announce his 'leave from Google' - we know he was scared, you saw the internal memos...

Now here is the dilemma, the army has no real adversary. Cutts was defeated in one week with just a small earth trembling under his feet, he decided to run away home to his wife with his tail between his legs.

So why not take on the SEO Bloggers, well it doesn't take an army to defeat SEO Bloggers, all you have to do is show them the data. Problem is they aren't even used to looking at real data since their minds are impervious to facts, hence why they blog. SEO journalist aren't even really here for fact checking either - they need pageviews, so they'll go with the wind of whatever circlejerk news story comes out as I showed you in Weekly #6 - Behind Enemy lines. There is no point in attempting to battle people that don't use facts nor truth in their arguments - it's all for pageviews for those guys.

So what do you do when you have a growing army with no one worthy to fight? Answer - we keep sharpening our swords while making bank, cause in the end that is why we are in this business isn't it? I could live without visiting WarriorForum, SearchEngine-Landfill, and the CirclejerkRoundtable ever again. I'll probably sleep better at night in fact. There will be some soldiers that will have some skirmishes here and there, whitehat SEOs state fiction, our soldiers show fact - the fight will be quick and painless - they might even convert some of the MozClowns into new recruits.

But SERPWoo doesn't matter, it's a tool in a toolkit. At BHU we've been battling Rand Fishkin and embarrassing him long before SW (Weekly #4 - WhiteHats / Small Businesses Massacre. What we built here is a community of hustlers and hungry individuals. We are here cause we know there is something off about the SEO world and as you saw in the latest SEO rhetoric about this fake sandbox nonsense, there is simply a lack of not only creativity, but actual thoughts and facts.

The next movement, next step has to include an end goal personally for all of us, and as a whole as a community. What we need is to be the breeding ground for new ideas, thoughts, and ways of seeing data and most importantly making money. SERPWoo is an example of one tool that allows you to see data differently - but it's only limited to the SERPs and taking over SEO. There are whole other realms of the internet which we can conquer one by one with the talent pool that accumulates here and thrives.

The question is how do we go forward, move an industry forward while making smart money for the long term. As a community we need to think about this, but also in your own individual efforts - how do you get to your next level of life, make the dollars you want and need and become a giant in your own realm.

I don't have the individual answers for you personally but I can give you some guidelines. Time management and being goal oriented. Having your own set in life and knowing what you want out of it is more important than anything. Knowing where you want to be financially, emotionally, and physically in one year, 2 years, 5, 10, and 20 years out is one of the most important things you can do to better your own life. When you start thinking in goals, those petty dramas on forums, Facebook, and IRL with family, friends, pseudo-friends, and enemies will not really matter after the next moment.



Someone asked after last week's Weekly why do I do and write what I write when the majority aren't even worthy. I was on the road and could only get in a quick reply on my mobile and simply wrote back, "for the 1%". The 1% are the ones that will grind nights, weekends, and lose sleep to get to their goals. They will rise above others while the 99% party each weekend, get into trouble, and settle for mediocrity in life.

I already know I don't have a lot of time left, I already feel the darkness descending towards me. One day I just won't be - and that's that. But what will go on are the lessons taught and learned, but most importantly executed. This one dude Puppetmaster is constantly showcasing new case studies and testing out different methods and generating those dollars that are crucial. He's not wasting time going back and forth in nonsense Reddit battle or playing tit-for-tat on twitter. You know what really separates the 99% from the 1% - it's not a financial line, it's a mental one. Look around you and notice all the real outliers that you know in your life, if you put them in a group of everyone you know, the cream of the cream always equate to 1% of the total people you know. Why is that? Cause they know what they want and know if they do the hard work and sacrifice now, they'll be able to become a god in their own chosen realm.

You can curse me, you can cheer after this post, but none of that will matter after the next moment. If you simply go back to doing the nonsense that the 99% do, you will continue settling for mediocrity. There is nothing wrong with being mediocre - just too boring for me. Posting in trolling threads for the next 2-3 years isn't really going to get you to where you want to be, unless your goals for the next X amount of years is to spend it trolling the internet, you might want to consider how much time you are truly wasting in Skype chats, trolling forums, and commenting on the latest global disaster going on. There will always be plenty of bad shit in the world going on, but like yin and yang there will be good - but does any of that matter right now at this moment if you aren't in a financial position you want to be? Maybe you want to change the world for the better - you can't do it from the bottom, no one listens to the people at the bottom, you can only do it from the top.

So as we continue to grow as a community, lets make sure we are growing in the correct path of making this place a bedrock of creativity, great ideas, and relationships which you can then leverage to get to your own personal goals in life. And if you have no goals, well then you are just a boat drifting in the ocean going where ever the wind takes you.

There is something to be said about selfishness. Mostly it's always looked down upon with disgust - but realistically if you aren't selfish with your time, life and resources people around you will drain it. If you aren't selfish with your education, you won't learn the necessary skills you'll need to succeed. If you aren't selfish with your time, you'll be constantly drawn into endless petty dramas which do nothing but drain your own energy and resources. If you aren't selfish with your finances any beggar on the street can ask for $1 and you'll soon find yourself right next to them begging. If you aren't selfish with your health, you'll soon find your body deteriorating. If you aren't selfish with your food, you'll starve. Imagine having to make sure everyone else in the world eats before you do, how long will you stand for that? You work, everyone else eats - at some point you'll wonder why is it that YOU are the one that has to sacrifice for others when no one is sacrificing for you. When you are down and out in your late 60s working at the local grocery store as a bag-boy, no one will be there to help you out cause you were busy being selfless with your time, resources, finances, and therefore your whole life.

Learn the power of "NO" and be selfish with your resources until you get to a level where you can help others - IF you want to. You can't help broke people if you are one of them. You have a choice, get focused, and become selfish with your time and get to your goals or blow like a leaf in the wind. The choice is yours...

So how is it going to end for you? I know how it's going to end for me...

Thanks for the mention.

I want to interject that my stance is that I don't think it's as important to write for the 1% - we run in our own circles and spread our knowledge behind closed doors (or in PMs). Imagine us as the Church of Internet Marketers. If we're just running around spouting rhetoric at each other, we're just preaching to the choir. And preaching to the choir doesn't increase the member county and your tithe pool - you need to do missionary work.

That's why I feel like my case studies, honestly, aren't there for the 1%. The ballers (and you know who you are) don't learn much from them - it's just validating our shared knowledge. If we were honestly only writing to each other, we'd be on Skype right now. The case studies serve the purpose of trying to inspire the 99% into taking action and stop dicking around. There's plenty of room at the top and it's more fun to share it with others.

And that's the same reason that I think your weekly blog series is in the free section and is shared across white hat social groups. Because if you were really just talking to the 1%, this would be in the paid section. And that brings me to the thought that I should cross post some case studies to a public section, for more exposure.

Ccarter, just keep doing what you're doing. It's working.

Ccarter, just keep doing what you're doing. It's working.

Using your analogy, doing these weeklys in the public section is for the masses but I'm referring to the 1% that will take action after hearing the thought of the day. That 1% is who the message is for, the lurkers that need to know there is a voice of reason behind why we exist and why we are here. Most won't be able to read between the lines yet, they still need more scars and battle wounds till they start to see the errors of their ways.

Excellent post - this answers my question  that I was going to ask you Carter and that is how you stay motivated. 

Good question, and it depends on what action you are referring to when I need motivation. If it is some marketing campaign I usually have to believe or truly understand that the end user will benefit. The best motivation is the testimonials back for products/services stating it helped them achieve their goal, or get the job done. It's difficult to explain but there are times when people state something you said changed their life, or helped them generated $X,XXX amount of new dollars daily and are ecstatic cause of it. I crack a smile cause they're better off now then they were days, weeks, months, or years ago. But to be honest with you, I'm not really in it to help people make money - it's connecting with people that have brains and I can therefore bounce ideas and have creative discussions with them on my projects or theirs. Money is just the afterglow of a job well done, where people are willing to pay you for bringing a concept or new idea to life.

One person might show me something that will lead to a new idea or thought or way of looking at things we have never thought of before. That one idea or thought might help another person that's completely stuck in a project that sees no way out. Imagine bringing a new thought/idea into a void and watching it flourish - that's why I do whatever it is I'm doing here, there, everywhere...

It's pretty exciting brainstorming some new concept, then having someone with a brain execute it perfectly and come back and state "yeah, that's shit worked and it's making us tons of bank...". Pulling ideas out of the omniverse, executing them, then watching them flourish, there really isn't a better feeling in my opinion.

So what motivates me? knowledge.

I know people who are succeful but feel guilty for their money, you just put into words better than I ever could what I've been trying to convey to them to change their way of thinking. This is going up on my wall:

"There will always be plenty of bad shit in the world going on, but like yin and yang there will be good - but does any of that matter right now at this moment if you aren't in a financial position you want to be? Maybe you want to change the world for the better - you can't do it from the bottom, no one listens to the people at the bottom, you can only do it from the top."

Quote from: CCarter

This really resonated with me. It made me feel the way I felt when I first read The Fountainhead.


Great Weekly. Thanks CCarter.

Is a motto that in the SEO World, you should live by.


Most "SEO Bloggers" (myself included) make money from their blogs (or potentially there, if it's a company/org like the Rusty Brick Jew-Hungry Scwartz empire..) where as people like Carter do not. It's not really much of a surprise that Carter did these weekly's leading up to the launch of SERPWoo, and that he freakin' loves mentioning it in these.. but they still offer info.


Carter, I've said it before and I'll say it again.. SEO Bloggers is very all encompassing, I've put out Tutorials/Posts on my blog that you, yourself has linked to - Along with a bunch of other Bloggers (ViperChill, SERPDerp, Agent etc..) - I'd actually be quite interested in a list of blogs, or even more specifically posts from bloggers that you actually like, rather than hearing how you hate us so much. ^.^

The perfect answer:



Notice the perfect mirror adjustment at the end by the driver... Refocus on your goals and never focus on the endless foolishness people will attempt to throw at you.

Another amazing thread, keep up Carter :)

What makes me laugh is your marketing style especially when you talk about Matt Cutts, cause he didn't revealing his quit idea because of your tracking platform, which is a coincidence with your release of SERPWoo  :P

But still I recommend your service with a full 10/10 rate, five stars or what ever you like to rate it.

Great Post +1  ;)

I do believe its the mentality. Rarely, do I run into someone that has the mentality to become the 1%, most people are meandering in mediocrity. Settling for mediocrity is so easy, but have to strive for excellence. The 80-20 rule.
Anyways, this just popped up on my fb feed that has some good relevance.  http://www.tickld.com/x/i-knew-kobe-bryant-was-dedicated-but-this

I wouldn't lie bro, you have some blog posts that I wouldn't forgot, and I agree that CCarter use his threads to market for his new service, but still he shared some great informations and some warnings about what happening in this field, also you have one mistake is, you didn't explain alot in your first reply, mostly I didn't like the offensive image which explain anti religious view which is away off of this topic.


CCarter like to do a 10/90 percent trick, explaining and giving information 90% of his topic, 10% of marketing phrases, like I mention on my first reply on this thread, related to Matt Cutts revealing of his willing to quit the position of the head of google's web spam, CCarter link that to his services which is pure marketing :)


Whatsoever, I respect CCarter for his effort and time also his knowledge.

^^ The individual is still confused on the subject matter of the original post or simply wants to continue focusing on "SEO Bloggers" in an attempt to return the focus back towards himself later on in the conversation. The subject is on NOT focusing on shit that does not matter when going towards your goals. This is a perfect rendition of how people will continue coming at you with side dramas and things which are off-topic which are designed to spin you around or  simply detour you from your goals



They may not even realize what they are doing when doing it, but as long as you focus on your own goals as people keep throwing things at you left and right, you'll win and join the 1%.

Be an asshole with your time, energy, and most importantly your mind. When people throw things at you, or throw you of balance for a moment, redirect your focus on your goals and then when out of the clearing re-adjust your mirrors and continue on.

At a certain point you'll become a fixated point in space, like a rolling stone that keeps moving forward, and eventually people will simply stop trying to throw you off since it doesn't work.

...I didn't like the offensive image which explain anti religious view which is away off of this topic...

You do know this is the Internet right?  I'm in no way defending whatever GodofSEO is saying but really... Internet...

I know dude don't bubble my quotes and start a religious or atheist war here.

I notice a point we know it's the internet which is free speech and opinion expression, still he is out of the context of this thread by putting that, It is my opinion like it or not is up to you!


Me also I didn't defend him, the way he said his opinion is offensive and I don't tolerate that as anyone will do.

CCarter is the leader of this forum like it or not, he did his best to inform people that what they do is wrong and they should not waste there time, following some propaganda and here say blogs, so for GODofSEO, make sure to drop your information here with your own way like CCarter did, moderation and also the admin wouldn't remove your thread if it was based on 90% information, also you can do you own way of advertising for your website here or brand or what so ever.

You don't need to attack CCarter to prove you're the person who do SEO blog posts and CCarter joke on us, I know how he do his thread and how he arrange them, some threads are pure information and head up warnings, some are advertising threads but to the point that you wouldn't even remember CCarter did any advertising on them cause he gives a bunch of information that hook you to that thread and give you more than taking from you.

CCarter create his own thread for his SERPWoo services, and advertise it as he would like without disturbing you each time on each thread like some mods on other forums do if I'm specific BHW as an example.

I don't mind to explain your problem with this thread without showing of you ego, if you were in BHW you would be banned with just mentioning a mods name without even aiming to do an argue with him.

Duo to respect for both of you, I will say stop this GODofSEO and hope you find a way to accept CCarter as an old friend who you know more than me, make sure to hold on your friendship cause all we need is good people around us like you and CCarter.

Hope I didn't create any kind of conflict between both of you, I hope you both be friends as always you were.

  :'( :(

Honestly, this thread just keeps delivering... (Does anyone reading this see the irony of posting drama in a thread literally talking about not wasting time with shit that doesn't matter?)

It's all about your goals, any and every time you are awake ask yourself if what you are focusing on at the very moment is going to help you get to your goal, preferably directly, if not then indirectly. I'm not in the entertainment business, drama doesn't make me money, and it probably won't make you a dollar either. Whatever happens here is not going to matter in the next moment.



Focus on your goals even when the world around you is exploding with the latest craze. Look at this thread as an example, a whole lot of back and forth going on about absolutely nothing. And me not giving a god damn shit, just keep refocusing on the goal of the thread - subject "not focus on shit that doesn't matter". The thread just keeps delivering drama, and I keep re-focusing my message to the original idea, my original goal. That's what it's about.

Just remember the above race car gif I keep posting. Is something that doesn't make you money taking attention away? If so, then re-focus and adjust your mirrors once you clear it. When you hear the latest gossip or rumor, keep playing that gif image in your mind. Notice the one race car driver threw "you" off balance a little, but if you look closely, there is another guy completely screwed up (green/blue car), that's now focused on looking backwards - facing the wrong direction. When drama comes, who do you want to be? The guy going forward or the guy looking back or the guy off in the grass? Do what I'm doing with the same gif but in real life - don't waste time with the drama, it'll be there in 5 weeks from now or 5 years from now. The opportunities you have right now in front of you most likely won't though.

Get to the money... Nothing else matters.

The problem with bloggers is they seems to lose quality overtime!

Blah Blah Blah SEO, Blah Blah Blah Matt Cutts, Blah Blah Blah Links..


I wasn't being an asshole or w/e.. I said your post is good and that my opinions or questions had already been answered.


I was simply trying to ask what sites/blogs/posts etc.. you like/have liked, rather than the ones you hate so we can go out and learn even more..

Yes I see the irony, people are getting bitch hurt about religion, being called an SEO blogger and tit for tat point scoring, when all the should be doing is watching the gif or doing some work. So Im gonna unsubscribe from this thread and crack on with some work, I have no money right now and I want a lot of it  >:(

what i'm taking away from this thread...

The 1% are the ones that will grind nights, weekends, and lose sleep to get to their goals. They will rise above others while the 99% party each weekend, get into trouble, and settle for mediocrity in life.


Maybe you want to change the world for the better - you can't do it from the bottom, no one listens to the people at the bottom, you can only do it from the top.


don't waste time with the drama, it'll be there in 5 weeks from now or 5 years from now. The opportunities you have right now in front of you most likely won't though.

Reading between the lines on this and last weeks post…

We’ve talked about SEO bloggers saying “those that can’t SEO, blog about SEO”. We’ve talked about the hive mind of SEO's and we’ve talked about the sheeples following the SEO gurus, hanging on their every word like its Gospel. We’ve talked about the issues we have within this industry and how these issues have come about. We’ve even talked about case studies and tests that support our hive minds… ‘cause that’s what people do when they’re convinced of something… find evidence to justify their point of view!

The real problem within this industry though is not how people think or act… it goes one level deeper… it’s about the type of people who are attracted to this industry!
First we have the kids… as young as 14yrs, joining forums such as BHU and launching BSTs in order to make a little money on the side. This I commend and support whole heartedly! Youngsters showing ingenuity and an entrepreneurial spirit should be encouraged and supported. Unfortunately, most lack the maturity or experience to really challenge the norm and move this industry forwards.   

Then we have the high school dropouts… 90% of which have very little to offer to this industry and are only looking for the next get rich quick overnight scheme. There will be some examples of high school dropouts who have gone on to be extremely successful, but those examples are few and far between.

After that we have the educated fools… the college/university grads that are just better than everyone else at absolutely everything. They often take the whitehat route, paying lip service to the Google propaganda machine and brown nosing up to self-proclaimed SEO gurus and bloggers like little lost puppy dogs.... before eventually becoming SEO bloggers themselves!

The worst of the lot are the SEO Gurus… scam artists offering to teach people how to make money online – I’ll show you how a made $250,000 online this month, all you have to do is sign up for my 3 part Magic Pill SEO Course. It’s normally $12,000 but if you sign up right now, you can get if for just $4,000… It’s limited to only 6 spots and the last one sold out within 3 micro-seconds… so get in now or you’ll miss out!!

Let’s be absolutely honest about one thing right now - the barrier to entry into this industry is extremely low. All you need is a laptop and an internet connection and boom… you can now become an SEO!! And therein lays our biggest problem.

Think about it objectively… you can’t go online, read a couple of posts about design and architecture and start offering your services as an architect the following day… or as an electrician, a doctor, a lawyer or an accountant!! These are real professions, where people train for years, learn their craft, and prove their competency before they can begin working in their chosen fields. SEO is not yet a profession… for some people it’s a job but for most it’s a way to get rich quick with limited skill and resources!

the barrier to entry into this industry is extremely low

Minimal Effort Maximum Reward! That’s the mantra that the 99% live by. There’s very few who have the imagination, creativity, knowledge and skills to truly innovate and make a difference. There’s even fewer that have the resources and motivation to invest in themselves before popping up on forums and scrapping for their next meal ticket!

Reading this back before clicking "Post"... maybe its a little harsh! But i'm a minority on this board - i've got nothing to sell so i can be honest!!

No bro you said some good things right to be mentioned, but sounds like this thread will go into a waste of time, hope we will see only useful replies, time to close this useless empty chat.

Everyone made his point, now everyone need to concentrate on his work and money streams !
