    So I had another journey thread on here a little while back where I ranked a fresh site in 14 days (was actually 11 in the end), getting to Google Page 1 for 1k+ search volume terms.

    You can read it here:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...gle-page-1-fresh-site-14-days-100-budget.html

    The project was very successful, cost very little and involved mainly whitehat techniques. Now, I am taking a turn to the dark side and taking on the:

    Here's the game plan:

    - New domain (well, 4 months old, leftover from a previous job)
    - NO original content
    - NO natural backlinks
    - LOTS of spam backlinks
    - LOTS of scraped content
    - LOTS of automated plugins (Wordpress, of course)
    - LOTS OF FUN!


    I'm going scrape, post, blast, and automate the site to see if, in the 2013 post-Penguinanda climate, it's still possible to get ranked on Google.com with an entirely blackhat site.

    I'm going after a bunch of 3-word keyword phrases, all of which have an adsense CPC of around £0.35 (50 cents) and are very lucrative for Amazon Affiliates. Average search volume in the US is 1,300 per month for each keyword. The idea is to rank then monetise with affiliates only.

    Off to upload a Wordpress site...

    Wish me luck! :cool:

    Best of luck. You will get rank but will not stay long time. But if you can choose a profitable keyword with right monetizing way, then you will profit even if you stay on first 3 few days.

    Thanks guys. I'm not expecting the site to stick around for years, but I want to see a) if it's possible, b) how much work it takes and c) how much money can be extracted from this technique!

    Plus, after spending most of my working day on whitehat stuff, it's nice to let off some spammy steam... :firedevil

    Day 1: Site creation and content automation

    Basic tasks completed:

    - Wordpress installed
    - Theme uploaded and customised

    Now onto the fun part: Automated site content.

    I want the site to have a lot of content posts, not just from today. The spam-a-thon method? Automated wordpress plugins!

    Here's a how-to guide:

    1. Install the following wordpress plugins (all free and in the public domain):

    - WP RSS Multi Importer

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-rss-multi-importer/

    - Simple Auto Featured Image
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-auto-featured-image/

    - Automatic Youtube Video Posts
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/automatic-youtube-video-posts/

    2. Find a bunch of niche-relevant RSS feeds. I used this search engine:
    http://ctrlq.org/rss/

    Copy the feeds into the RSS Multi Importer plugin. Make sure it's set up with a relevant category and set to send RSS to Posts.

    Enable the Simple Auto Featured Image plugin and upload a bunch of scraped images in the Media section of Wordpress (you can google and download, or use scrapebox for more automated fun).

    Hit "CLICK TO FETCH FEEDS NOW" in RSS Multi Importer (under the Feeds to Post tab) and hey presto, my site is filled with content dating from 2009 to today. (I used 11 RSS feeds and got 191 posts).

    Now for some diversity... activate the Automatic YouTube Video Posts plugin, enter in some channel IDs or playlist IDs and hit "IMPORT ALL VIDEOS". Now we've got a bunch of posts with relevant images, text and video. Time spent: 30 minutes.

    3. For even more auto-generated fresh content, I installed Tweet Blender

    (http://wordpress.org/plugins/tweet-blender/), authorised it with a new Twitter account (created for this website) and added the widget to the footer. Now, niche-relevant tweets scroll on the site every 30 seconds. Great!

    4. For even more fresh generated content, I added another free plugin that generates sports scores (Yep, the niche is sports-based). This displays on the homepage and site pages and updates every hour.

    5. Finally, I installed WP Social Poster (shared on here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...71299-get-wordpress-social-poster-plugin.html) and synced my site with Twitter, Stumbleupon, Facebook, Google +, Pinterest and Tumblr. This will get automated backlinks and social signals for my site every time an autopost fires itself off. Easy peasy.

    DAY 1 SUMMARY:

    Time spent - 1 hour
    Money Spent - Nada!
    Result = Wordpress automated site with dynamic widgets, automated posts and scrolling content.Auto posting to top social networks for automated backlinks and social signals.


    Tomorrow, time to add scraped content, and start spamming backlinks.

    Nice. I wonder how long your site will stay up with spammed backlinks. I'll be keeping an eye on this.

    By the way, maybe there are some wp plugins or smthng to automatically repin it to pinterest? And then if you would do it in cooking niche it will be profitable even after ban from big G.

    Day 2: Content scraping and image posting

    Today, it's more of the same, but this time I'm after keyword-rich content for landing pages.

    I decided to try and break as many Webmaster Guidelines as possible, so here's my template for adding content pages:

    1. Google keyword
    2. Scrape content from the Top 10 results (keep backlinks etc)
    3. Don't even bother spinning
    4. Add it to a landing page, pimp with photos and embedded YouTube video
    5. Keyword stuff with related terms
    6. Repeat for each keyword page. I'm doing 5 at the moment.

    Another automated content method I used was to generate mass image posts with optimised alt text:

    1. Install the Wordpress plugin Auto Post After Image Upload (http://wordpress.org/plugins/auto-post-after-image-upload/)
    2. Scrape as many niche images as you like. Google them or use scrapebox for extra blackhat points
    3. This is key: use bulk renaming software (this one works for me http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-keyword-rich-website-images.html#post6007426) to name all images with your chosen keyword, folllowed by a number. E.g. KeywordPhrase1.jpg, KeywordPhrase2.jpg etc etc.
    4. Now we need another plugin (for extra lazee-boy points): SEO Friendly Images (http://wordpress.org/plugins/seo-image/). This will automatically add alt tags to all images, saving plenty of time.
    5. Upload as many images as you like and get automated posts, complete with optimised alt tags and file names - coming soon to a Google Image search near you. If you don't like having thousands of messy posts, try a gallery plugin or insert many images into single posts for maximum effect.

    DAY 2 SUMMARY:

    Time spent - 2 hours
    Money Spent - Zilch!
    Result = 5 Keyword rich landing pages, tonnes of automated news, video and image posts. Keyword stuffed to the max.

    RANKING UPDATE: over 100 site pages are indexed on Google, and 10-12 on Yahoo and Bing. No major ranking yet.


    Tomorrow, time to get sneaky with some more twisted methods...

    The site's still churning out auto-content, so now I moved on to spamming my backlinks. Here's what I've made so far:

    - Scrapebox 18k+ comment spam backlinks (homepage url)
    - 1k blackhat social shares from Wordpress plugin + botted accounts. Main sites are Twitter, Facebook and Google+
    - 3k Stats/Whois backlinks, courtesy of NoHandsSEO

    so here's the progress so far:

    DAY 3 SUMMARY:

    Time spent - 3 hours
    Money Spent - Nowt (software, proxies, accounts already owned)
    Result = Generated content, auto social shares, thousands of spammed backlinks, everything pinged (no 2nd tier).

    RANKING UPDATE: Major movements after just 3 days!
    - 115 pages indexed on Google.com
    - Keyword 1 is on Page 2
    - Keyword 2 is result #1, Page1! (I think this one's down to reddit shares...)


    Not expecting the #1 result to stay there for long, but I will keep the thread updated.

    Next trick: spamming google with automated traffic and organic search referrals. Off to install Webmaster tools (grumble) and test out a new bot.
