Name: Project Fast Income by James Bradley
Final Rating: 2 out of 10 stars (Red Flag)
I’m not here to sell you to Project Fast Income so what I write here is an unbiased opinion. However, in regards to it being a scam or not, I will advise against using it because many of it’s approaches to making money online in my experience will only lead to failure. In this post, I will explain exactly why this is likely to happen.
Project Fast Income in a nutshell:
It’s a WordPress plugin (broken down into 7 plugins) whose purpose is to create content, get backlinks to your site and help it rank high on Google for your targeted keywords with ease while you do pretty much minimal work. But if this confuses you, allow me to explain it in a more simple way…
The simple explanation:
Basically this day n age, if you are to succeed online, you need a website (preferably WordPress) that contains a lot of high quality content. Overtime, content is what gets ranked in Google and if you rank high enough for many popular search terms known as keywords, you can get a lot of visitors to your site and monetize it through this process.
What Project Fast Income aims to do, at least in theory is to automate the process of content creation so you don’t have to do it. Usually people have to write up a lot of their own content and wait quite a bit (weeks-months) before their site ranks high enough on Google to get any results.
Project Fast Income tries to take a shortcut by creating automatic content so you don’t have to worry about it in addition to doing other things such as sending backlinks to your site, all with the purpose to give Google the impression that your site is rich in content and is good enough in quality to be ranked high.
5 Reasons I Don’t Recommend Project Fast Income:
1. I have seen many programs use a similar approach to their systems as Project Fast Income and in every instance, I advised against it because the long term results would likely lead to failure. But what exactly are these methods? Well…
2. It “creates” content for you. This is code word for copying other people’s content and using it as you own, aka plagiarism. Project Fast Income claims it’ll create unique content for you so you don’t have to worry about it doing it, but the truth is that in order for a tool like this to create content, it needs to get it from somewhere and this is where the problem lies.
Imagine for a second writing your own article, putting it online and then having someone use that article as their own. Would you like that?
I doubt it, but that’s exactly what these sorts of programs do. They search the internet for content related to what you’re trying to write about and basically copy it over.
3. It “spins” content. If you though copying other people’s content was bad, it gets even worse when it gets spun. Spun means the content’s wording is changed around to give Google as well as readers the impression that it’s unique content.
Never mind the plagiarism argument, but when content is spun, I personally have never seen it make sense. Grammatical errors are made, the whole context of the article doesn’t really make sense and it become much harder to read. Anykind of spun content is in my experience LOW quality content. This leads me into the next reason…
4. Google does NOT like this kind of stuff. Content spinning, content “creation”, backlinking (I’ll get to that in a moment) are all things that basically revolve around trying to get fast results in Google and other search engines via “tricking” them into thinking you have a high quality website delivering mass amounts of good content.
Google has become (and continues to do so) very good at spotting websites which do this. Once they catch them, the site is either de-indexed from the search engine (disappears) or it’s ranking is lowered to such an extent that no one will ever be able to find it. Think of it as banishment basically and in online business, such an event is not just catastrophic, it is basically the end of the business.
One thing that is often seen by these programs is the initial results they give, but as time goes on, you risk Google spotting you and knowing what you did. Once they do, a Google slap or blacklist is pretty much guaranteed.
5. Backlinking. I honestly should have put this down as #4 but that’s alright. Backlinking is another thing Google is not a fan of because like the other methods I mentioned above, it is all done with the intent to trick the system and get faster results. Google does not like to be fooled so it’s another reason to avoid this program altogether.
I could get into details on why backlinking is bad, but here’s a full explanation if you’re interested. Long story short, this and the other things I mentioned are all part of an approach to marketing known as black hat, aka what I like to refer to as “Avoid”.
- Although hyped the salespage does explain how the product works so there’s no guesswork.
- It can have initial results.
- Uses black hat marketing methods: Copies content, spins content and uses backlinks.
- Odds of the site being slapped or blacklisted by Google are very high.
- Lots of hype and promises which are highly unlikely to happen.
Final Rating: Project Fast Income
Red Flag (Avoid)
2 out of 10 stars. I don’t recommend it. If you want to learn real ways to succeed online, here is my #1 recommendation.
My Final Thoughts:
The program itself is not revolutionary as you hear on the sales page. There has been and will be others like it.
To name a few that I’ve already reviewed: SEO Zen & Kontent Machine 3 are prime examples of programs that are like Project Fast Income. And just like with that program, I have rated all of these other places similarly (red flag and avoid) all because they attempt to trick the system.
My experience in online business has taught me to never mess with the system because they are the gatekeepers. If you try and trick them, you will fail. I do not recommend Project Fast Income.
If you have a personal review of this program, I’d like to hear about it!
