Unfortunately it’s just an hour and a half wasted. This 96 minute video is nothing more than a rehash of link building, Meta tags, domain age and other incredibly rehashed topics.    I watched this video with the checklist above and could find zero action items that would actually help me improve my ranking.

Of course the first thing that happens is that Munchweb tries to sell you on Traffic Magnet.

If you’ve got 8.40 to throw away, you’d be better off buying two expensive coffees at Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts and use the caffeine buzz to push you to implement some of the techniques you already are familiar with. There are no secrets delivered by the Signal Pigeon.   Stay away from Munchweb… It’s all pigeon poop.

12/30 Update – I can’t get off the mailing list of these guys. Chris Munch’s barrage keeps coming even though I’ve unsubscribed several times.    Really annoying way of doing business.. Avoid anything with Chris Munch’s name on it.
