Throughout the years I have been working on various personal projects, just to learn, develop myself and create something awe-inspiring. I’m addicted to spawn and optimize websites on a large scale, which of course should outrank any competitor in the common search engines by doing state-of-art SEO. This hobby evolved in a life-project that is currently self-sustaining and growing naturally. Here are some of my most rewarding projects;
My love for Asia resulted in the acquisition of the domain Tokyo.nl in the summer of 2014. The previous owner didn’t do anything with it so I had to start from scratch. No problem. Since the end of 2015 Tokyo.nl became the number one platform in The Netherlands with travel information about Japan & Tokyo. In the SERPs surrounding any topic of Japan you will definitely find my website. It is by far the largest website I have when you’re considering content and receives around 2000 visitors a day.
Annoyed by spammy advertisements, I decided to create something that helps people block them. Taking organic traffic as a measure the website Ads-blocker.com is the largest of my portfolio. Having around 2000 daily visitors isn’t a one time only but more like a daily recurring tidal. Ads-blocker.com has been featured on CrazyEgg.com, Neilpatel.com, Emerce.nl and many more leading online platforms.
In my travels around the world I was lucky enough to visit Colombia in 2014 (couple of times more after that). This exceptionally charming country unfortunately has a violent and turbulent history which left its marks throughout society. Nevertheless, Colombia is definitely one of the most amazing countries I have ever been to. The country itself is beautiful thanks to its richness in nature and biodiversity. Add this to the tranquillo culture of the Colombianos and you get one overwhelming travel destination. Colombia.nl was acquired in 2016 and is one of my focus projects. It receives around 1000 daily visitors and is almost the market leader.
Traveling around the world takes you to places that not many visitors have been before. The San Blas Islands is/was such a destination. The location in Panama is pretty remote, which makes it difficult to reach, gets you going back to basic but also keeps it out of the scope of the mass tourism industry. But hey its dazzling beauty, tranquillity and pristine character make up for every luxury that you’re missing out. Plus there was no normal website about it? I just had to do something about that. SanBlas-Islands.com is currently one of my most successful projects ever, as it has obtained links from Internet Giants such as CNN, National Geographic, HuffingtonPost, Van der Bilt University, Fox News and many more.
Mooji.nl started out as my personal travel blog, where I described all my journeys around the world. It is currently more than only a travel blog, I’m also offering travel advice, tips and much more country specific information on it. Fun to read and I see it as some kind of a diary of my travels.
Don’t skip these projects!
