About Me

Me at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco

My name is Max Thum, I‘m 22 years old and I bought my first online course at the age of 17.

Since then, I've purchased more than 20 online courses on various topics, such as blogging, day trading, design, and web development, all with the goal of making money online.

Unfortunately, most of the online courses I purchased were not worth the money, despite finding numerous positive reviews online. I realized that most of these reviews were either fake or posted by individuals who had never used the course and were solely seeking affiliate commissions.

This has led me to found Knowledge Eager with the mission to publish honest and objective online course reviews.

At first Knowledge Eager was only a passion project, today the website generates a nice income for me. Learn more about how Knowledge Eager makes money.

In 2022, just one year after its founding, Knowledge Eager reached over 375.000 readers.

The quick success of Knowledge Eager has led me to launch other content websites and learn more about SEO. Today I run a boutique SEO agency focused on Parasite SEO called RankCrush.

Morten Storgaard's course and Semrush are excellent starting points if you're looking to launch a successful content website.

While I do plan to go full-time on SEO in the near future, I am currently studying Business Administration at a university in southern Germany.

When I'm not studying for university or working on SEO, I like to travel.

Me skydiving in Queenstown, New Zealand
Me horseback riding on the beach in Costa Rica

The best part? My portfolio of content websites continues to make money while I'm traveling.

Another project of mine is meersburg24.de.

I have made it my mission to find and review the best online business courses.

I follow a rigorous process to rate online courses, which involves evaluating them on 17 different factors.

These factors include price, customer support, community, content quality, and more. The overall rating for each course is then determined by combining the scores across all 17 factors.
