We all know that in April NeilPatel had taken $100,000 Challenge for his newly launched blog.Every month he updates  his quicksprout blog with the nutrition blog growth/reduction.

I thought to spy his NutritionBlog to bring all of you an exclusive case study on ”How Neil is Growing His Nutrition Blog.”

I tried to study ‘NutritionSecrets’ Blog deeply so that I could bring the best results.However, I don’t challenge anyone that my case study is completely right.

Neil Impact on NutritionSecrets Blog

I know Neil Already shared that he isn’t going to use his name to complete 100k$ challenge.He is n’t using his bio or pic on the nutrition blog.But, He already said that he got some mail saying ”He is cheating By using His Name”

Yes, Neil is right he is n’t using his name.But, what about his fan following? He is an authority in Internet marketing & we can’t deny this FACT & believe me, it has a huge impact on NutritionSecrets blog.

Here is a typical example :p which tell us influence of Neil on Nutritonsecret Blog

Interlinking to the project articles for extra exposure to NutritionSecrets

I’ve attached a picture which tells that Neil is using QuickSprout to get extra visitor & exposure.I’m not against it, just sharing the true FACTS


Impact of QuickSprout- Referal Traffic

Neil mentioned the referral traffic that NutritionSecrets in getting.This also tells how much impact Neil has because of Quicksprout on Nutrionsecret.


Link Building Strategy

Links building is an important process to rank in a short span of time.But according  to Neil ”LinkBuilding is n’t the future of SEO”  & he officially published an article on it.


So, does it means Neil is n’t building the links for Nutrition Blog? It’s a new blog in nutrition niche so we know link building process is little tough.So, let’s check how many backlinks Nutrition secret have.


So far, Nutrition blog has got  400 Backlinks which is decent numbers for a 4-5 months old blog & you can see Link Influence score is 59% which is damn good.It also shows that backlinks are from quality sources.

To confirm how quality links he is building, I did a research & then I found this on Google which made me go Crazy!!


Neil made a link from Wikipedia, which made a huge impact on Nutrition blog.Plus this is n’t even a relevant link according to SEO terms.

Conclusion-Link building is as important as making articles.Even though he an article published saying ‘Link-Building is n’t future of SEO’  but still he & his client building links, which is STRANGE.

Engagement Tactics

NutritionSecret is developing super-quality articles, no doubt.Each article contains 2000+ words.The Quality of pictures is extreme.According to him, It is Mike who always write articles. Is it true? No, It is not 😛 But he managed to hide it.


Even if you go through comments you will see people are praising here Neil’s work 🙂 which show this post was actually written by him.

So, only this or something more Neil is doing without making any buzz?

Unfortunately yes :p In the above pic you can see he tweeted NutritionSecrets new post, by this way he is promoting his NutritionSecret.


Conclusion– So the conclusion is only that Neil existence has a great impact on NutritionSecrets.He is doing a great job, no doubt.But, After spying on his blog I came to know that it is not what he always say about NutritionSecrets.But I have no problem with it 🙂
