Throughout the years I have been working on various personal projects, to learn, develop and create something awe-inspiring. At this stage, I must admit that I’m addicted to spawn and optimize websites on a large scale, which of course should outrank any competitor in any search engines by applying 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 and Belgium about travel information for Japan. In the SERPs surrounding any topic of Japan you will definitely encounter my website. It is by far the largest website of my portfolio and receives around 140k organic visitors a month.
In my travels around the world I was lucky enough to visit Colombia in 2014 (and a 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 upcomming travel destination. Colombia.nl was acquired in 2016 and is one of my focus projects. It receives around 40k monthly visitors and is almost the market leader in the Dutch market.
Annoyed by spammy advertisements, I decided to create something that helps people finding ways to block them via Ads-blocker.com. Taking organic traffic as a measure it is one of the largest websites of my portfolio. Having around 2500 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, Vice.com, Emerce.nl and many more leading online platforms.
Traveling around the world sometimes takes you to places that not many visitors have seen before. The San Blas islands is/was such a destination. It’s located in a remote part of Panama and not easy to reach via land. This has kept it out of scope of the mass tourism industry and made sure it kept its dazzling beauty, tranquillity and pristine character. Raoul noticed that 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.
Don’t skip these projects!
