My Unbiased Screw95 Course Review
Owner: Jay Wessman
Is Screw95 a scam?
I bought this product a couple of months ago to see if it can teach me something new. After a couple of hours I learned new things about internet marketing that I did not know at that time. This product originally comes from the website LazyAssStoner.com which is the property of Jay Wessman.
At first when I looked through the course, I thought that what the heck does this stoner guy know about internet marketing and can he really teach me something new about SEO and backlinks. Screw95 is as legit as it can come, so let me show you what you will find inside his course without giving away too much.
What will you find inside Screw95?
Here I will show you more about what you will find inside this product.
Module 1) Choosing a niche
In this module I completely agree with what he is teaching. This is the most important step to take when building out your website and if you screw up this part, you will not succeed. He has a couple of very important points
There were about 2 small problems that was lacking. The first one was the keyword research part because he used Google keyword tool. There are other tools that are so much better especially if you want to get information about your competition.
The second small setback was that he teaches to use the keywords in the domain. a Couple of years ago Google ranked websites very well when they had the keyword included in the domain, but now they do not rank that well anymore. Other than that, I think it was great.
Module 2) Setting up a site
There was absolutely nothing wrong with what he taught here and everything was as straightforward as you can get. In this course you will be taught stuff such as registering a domain, get hosting, setting up WordPress etc.
He teaches this module perfectly and this part is very important because this is where a lot of people will get stuck. I will never forget the time when I first started with the initial setup because it was a nightmare.
Module 3) Choosing products
The type of websites he creates is your typical e-commerce sites. They do not contain a lot of content and are mainly focused around products. It is proven over and over again that the longer your article is the better it will rank in Google.
Module 4) Dominating Search
Here he explains very clearly what SEO is and also the most important aspects of it such as on-page and off-page SEO. He really teaches the on page part very well and makes it so easy to understand. On page SEO is the stuff you do on your website that will influence your rankings in the serps.
The backlink part was also not too bad except for the fact that it is a bit outdated. Google became very strict about backlinks and it is not that easy anymore to rank. There are 3 rules that you should follow when trying to get backlinks.
- Make sure that you get good quality backlinks.
- Relevant backlinks are getting more important each day.
- Do NOT try to manipulate Google’s algorithm because you will get burned (Some grey hat tricks might still work today, but who knows when Google will unleash another major algorithm).
This is where the Jay breaks the third rule of backlinks. Inside Screw95 Jay will teach you how to manually get backlinks from forums and other types of blogging sites for your website and though it might work for now, but once Google unleashes another algorithm update, you might get that so called Google slap.
I would not refer to the backlinking techniques that are being taught here. This falls into the grey hat link building and you will never be safe with this approach.
Module 4) Dominating Social
This is by far the best part of the whole course and I was glued to my computer screen when watching this part. I also got a couple of very cool ideas for my website when going through this part.
This is what I wanted to see because here Jay will teach you how to leverage social media to get traffic and backlinks. One very potent way to get backlinks is to share your article on social media in order to get people to read it. Here and there you will find a webmaster that will link to your article and you get a backlink.
Another thing that also makes social media very powerful is social signals such as likes, pluses, tweets and shares. The more shares you have, the better you can rank. This will all be taught inside module 4 which is the icing on the cake.
What more will you get?
All this will be followed by more videos where you will be taught how to scale your business by building more websites and how to outsource most of your work.
This is very important and must be done once you have successfully created your very first profitable websites. This information can in very handy when the time is right.
There will also be a couple of case studies that you can model after and a private forum. The forum does not look very busy at all, but it can be a good way to get some help.
I am so happy that I bought this course before it closed down and Jay does not accept any more signups. But the world does not end there because Jay is now working on Screw95 version 2 which will be the updated version of the original product.
I cannot wait to get my hands on the second addition because I know that it will be kick ass. Even though the backlink building part of his course is a bit outdated, I will not knock this program down just for that because the SEO industry is changing at a fast rate and it his really hard to keep up.
Maybe in the second addition he will be giving some more up to date training on how to successfully build backlinks that will hold on the long term.
What To do now
Unfortunately Screw is not open right now for any new signups, but that is not a problem because I know of a great place which is also my number 1 recommendation that will teach you most of the stuff that you need to know in order to make a living online.
This is also the place where I got started and is one of my top recommendations.
