===================================

Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo,

As you've probably already seen in Bena/ PlasticElephant's thread, an exceedingly clean time was had in Tignes - we basically got wall to wall sunshine for 4 days, then a big dump for the last 2 days. Gotta x-post these two photos from G's thread:





Got home and managed to sidestep the classic welcome home session - seems like stars are worried I'd been grinding party instead of psych:



I guess when you're running cl33n you're running cl22n.

Been sessioning piano super hard since getting home, will probably put something up on youtube over the next few days, will drop the link here if so.

Back into the swing of grinding, feels like there's a few more regs trying to war for the lobby in the last few days, games have been great and I've been running pretty well, will be trying to get as much volume as possible in before next ski trip in 10 days time.

Also been grinding content (in my sick merch) for bitbcash, finally finished the series I've been making on HU BB srp vs IP - 18 sections in all Gonna move on to SRP OOP as PFR next, kinda slow progress, but progress nonetheless.

That's about it for now, GL out there

Yooooooooo! Good to hear from you Rihards, how are you sir? Been dabling in the pokers at all??

Piano is tantalisingly close, been grinding the same tune for weeks and it's alllllllmost flawless, will have to record something before the next trip and draw a line under it. Actually wonder if my neighbours are tilted by the one song all day approach I've been taking

====================================

Honestly, I've had worse weeks playing poker. Listening to Made in the Manor on repeat got a man hype I guess....

Folding is overrated.



Actually apologised in chat for this one:

=================================



Gave up trying to get the perfect recording after maybe like 8 attempts. The pressure is on when I'm recording, tough to perform! Recorded the audio through the piano itself, cut the audio out of the phone recording and matched up the two (was actually kinda hard to get it spot on).

edit: Was apparently recorded on a potato for first 20s, this new/old phone is weird about the camera for some reason

I'd rather not . The only reason I never sitout is because I don't know how to work the lobby like most of the regs out there, they do some sit in and out 3h shenanigans and I always ended up losing the table.

Tbh not a bad approach, the lobby politics side of things is super lame. Glad to see a new warrior in town though!

===============================

Time to book the month! Didn't go quite so good after returning from skiing, but w/e, still a very clean month.





So yeah it appears my redline appears to continue going the wrong way. Idk though, I keep simming these spots where I make marginal calldowns and not hating what I see

Almost apologised for this one though - he genuinely instant called. Ace of spades naughty card to have for this one lmao #notallowed



Slightly annoying that the month would've been 23k ish had I not chucked in some 1k, had some welcome back problems at that particular stake. On the plus side though been enjoying some HU this month, I swear the lobby changes have turned a few guys battler so I'll probably keep going on that front this month, maybe throw in some more zoom too. I didn't really set a volume goal for this month, but I got in a very steady routine which I'll be looking to keep up as much as possible this month.

Finally sorted my finances, maxed out the old ISA on some ultra low charge fidelity funds and set up a direct debit for £1,666/month. I told myself the 1k shot was 20BI when I started, so gonna stay true to that unless I feel like it's stressing me out and I want to drop it.

Outside of poker, had some thoroughly bad news this month - my Jiu Jitsu gym is closing down! The landlord has given them 6 weeks to pack up and **** off, gutting as I love the people, the timetable, everything about the place is just pretty great. I guess I'll actually have to join a golf club to fill my days, either that or there's a good hot yoga place not too far away. Will also up the climbing freq a bit.... maaaaaaaybe will finally get back around to the gym aswel, we'll see how it pans out.

I fly to Mexico on April 15th, going to head down to London on the 12th and hopefully do some fun things there before heading out. Will be there till 6th May, coming home as I've a stagger the weekend of May 10th up in Aviemore.

One last thing, I've been doing a bit of the old writing recently, read up on some basic SEO stuff and it seems you get to the top of the rankings by answering the questions your customers are asking. Googled around a few poker related questions, paying special attention to the 'people also ask' boxes and decided to write an article series about solvers. Done 4 (of a planned 6) articles in the past 4 days, probably pretty basic for most of the regular posters ITT, but imma post it up for all you lurkers out there! https://bitbcash.com/category/articles/

That's it for now, onwards and upwards in April let's go get it!

GL out there,

Re: D7's 2018 PGC: back at it

Doing blogs are definitely a good way to improve your SEO, I have no idea how much research you've done for it but if you're doing this as a business then spending even $1-$2k on someone to help with the finer point of SEO can be well worth it. Or even using someone relatively cheaply off a site like fiverr. Certainly identifying key words is a must (the reason answering questions is good is because peopel ask the same stuff/end up creating the key words).

Not sure how many Keywords there are going to be for poker related stuff but how you set your headings, word count on homepage (should be min 250) etc, all make a big difference. The likelihood is most of your competition will be doing it themselves too, even a small improvement over them will show big results. You'll be surprised how lethargic your competition can be. I managed to get our website ranking above almost all other dental sites in our area within 6 months, these are businesses easy turning over $100k+ a month but don't bother with doing proper SEO.

I have no idea how much through traffic u get and your competition is way less localised than ours but yeah, budgeting for good SEO can be a no brainer (depending on circumstance). SEO is a huge black hole full of dark arts, it's actually quite interesting.

Also, wp solid month.
