Our Services

Web Design

We highly recommended using Wordpress for your website. However, we can also make a traditional CSS, HTML website for you too. (We've been doing web design since 2000.) Wordpress is very interactive, it makes its own pages, and you can change the look with just a few clicks. Wordpress is the very definition of Web 2.0.

Article Writing

Article writing is a very important part of your marketing strategy- whether you do it yourself, or we do it for you. It will help you become recognized as an expert in your field. And it helps you get your link out there- all over the place. Our published writers will help you achieve internet success.

SEO Services

SEO (search engine optimization) is our forte'. This is what separates the people on page ten, from the people on page one. We cover all the bases, and make sure you get noticed- for the keywords you want to be known for. We cover both; on-page SEO, and off-page SEO.


If you expect to have an internet business, you simply must market it. We can help you get the word out through social networks, article writing, link building and search engines. The more links to your website, the higher you go. It's that simple.

Logo Design & Branding

Most businesses know the importance of a logo. But when we talk about your brand, we are talking about a lot more than that. Your brand is who you are, what you stand for, what you do. Let us help you make your statement.

Consulting Service

All of these service we do add up to one thing- consulting. Nobody knows everything, but when people learn from each other, they get better. Typically, we learn something from each client. Let us learn from you, then share what we've learned from others.

About Us

40Dollars.com is owned and operated by Ken Skaggs, who oversees all of its day-to-day operations. Ken is a published writer (over 200 articles in print, and 400 articles on the web), a veteran web designer, and web-marketing professional. He still calls himself a student of the internet, because the internet is constantly evolving. His expertise has helped dozens of web-businesses reach new heights.

Google Page-Rank is Key

There are a lot of factors that will determine your online success. The gage that most web marketers go by is Google Page Rank (PR). Getting other websites to link to your site (backlinks) is the best way to gain page-rank. But not just any site. You must get backlinks from a quality site, one that has decent PR and DA (domain authority). We can get those quality backlinks for you. Equally important is the number of outbound links (OBL) on the page. When we place your link onto a website, we make sure they don't have too many outbound links. (All the OBL's on a page share that link juice.)

Free Evaluation

Let us take a look at your site- find out what you are doing right, and what mistakes you are making. Sometimes a little advice is all you need. Sometimes a whole new approach is needed. We won't try to sell you something you don't need- that you can count on. There is no cost for this evaluation.

Our Approach

Each website represents an individual, and everybody is different. We want you to be yourself, and showcase your talents. What one website does well, the next one knows nothing about- and visa-versa. Sometimes the smallest thing is the most important. That's why we treat everything we do as if it were the most important thing.

Writing Styles

Writing style is important. It says who you are, and exactly what you are talking about. All members of our team are from Chicago, and as Chicagoans, we write very directly. We don't believe in beating around the bush, and we believe in getting to your point quickly. There's no time to waste in this life, so whatever the subject, we write concisely, directly, and informatively.

Our Areas of Expertise

When we get an article idea, and present it to a webmaster, it helps to know what you are talking about. Our specialty subjects are; humor, cars, trucks, driving, trucking, business development, web-marketing, web design, SEO, city living, country living, people, places, safety, and education. Of course, we never shy away from a challenge, so we don't mind tackling new subjects. Just give us a try.

On-Page SEO and Off-Page SEO

  • You can write your own articles, and find websites to post them. This way, you can share your expertise and at the same time get a backlink to your website.
  • You can post other people's articles on your site, to get fresh content. Google loves fresh content. Add something new as often as you can to help your page-rank grow.
  • When you do something on your site to help search engines find you, that's on-page SEO.
  • When you do something on another website, to get a backlink, or to help out someone with your knowledge, that's off-page SEO.
  • Both on-page SEO and off-page SEO are equally important.
