Hey guys. First I must thank bluematter for this amazing post and motivation.
I have been a web developer tor 14 years and totally ignored the money that can be made with IM, and I'm getting a little tired or code and thinking about partly retire from it and generate some income with IM.
I started following this thread yesterday and so far I'm only on page 6. But I have a few questions that I would like to get clarified before going further.
I found a 3 words keyword that gives me 22.000 searched, high competition, $12 bid, google first page mostly new domains, PR 0 and n/a.
Got a domain like my-key-word with .net and one of the words has 300.000 searches, high comp, $14 and some first pagers have PR below 4 but domains are mostly old.
Is this a good choice??
According to this word topic, I can make blog posts according to locations which I guess would help me to rank better. But I guess I'll need around 800 blog posts. Is this too much??
Also, I never used wordpress, despite knowing it and understanding it, I have my own developed CMS that I can adapt to anything and write any module/plugin in a short time. It has some features for SEO like friendly urls and keywords per page. I was thinking about using it instead of learning and get at the same level of comfort with wordpress. So, my question is, What are the advantages of using wordpress?
Last question, Since I have to produce many blog posts, one per location, is there any problem to get ranked if I duplicate some posts and change only the location name in the titles and in the content??
Thanks for everything guys.
I have red the whole thread... OH my god it took me about 4 hours So from now I should start my own journey...
Thank you for so nice thread...
First of all, thank you for a nice thread. It is very helpfull for many people! Thumbs up.
Although, i have a question. How hard is it to outrank sites like Walmart, Amazon and eBay? I do not live in the United States, so I don't really have a feeling about outranking that kind of pages. Because I find a lot of keywords, where the top rankings are Amazon or Walmart sites. Do you have any experience with that?
Hello, my site is in the first page on yahoo but not getting traffic, any reason why it happens?
actually, i am in the same situation as you, even long tail keyword has high competiton but my CPC still too low than ad planner showed, around $0.16, really dont know why this happen.
Thank you very much. I have just started my own blog. But I will need a few clarification on the link building part, somethings are not clear. I will PM you if you don't mind Sam.
I'll have to say that when i started reading this thread i had ZERO knowledge of even building a blog much less techniques of SEO, back linking, niche KW research, marketing, advertising, timing, tools of the trade.. etc. By the time i finished, i'm AMAZED at how much i learned about the grueling process of IM! Thank you very much Bluematter for making this available for all to see in such a detailed fashion and for those that took the time out to create readable PDF's and Q&A's for all to quickly and easily reference. I have a great deal more to learn and resources to amass before I'd consider taking on a task such as this. With that being said, about that KW thingy... I'M KIDDING!! Best of luck to all who took action. I hope everyone hits their mark or at least has a better understanding of how to accomplish their goals.
On a side note, I'm wondering how the new penguin update affected everyone. I saw a few ppl state they really took a drastic hit in traffic and rank but OP made no mention of declining numbers on his quest to $100. I'd love to see this thread continue on as I've also learned a great deal from those who took the journey along side OP and posted their trials and tribulations. Kudos to the n00bs who picked it up quickly and jumped in, for, you have more moxie than I.
This is a great community and i look forward to discovering all the resources this awesome site has to offer.
Looks like this thread is dead??!!
Apart from feedback from my post, would like to know the results people are getting...
This seems like a great guide to look into, I attempted to use the google keyword too, however, it appears its been changed to something different? Is there an update to this inside the guide, that I am missing? I've tried to find something, but I can't seem to.
Use "search thread">"advanced search">"search posts by user=bluematter", you'll find the important posts here with it.
if you read the op's thread you will see that he did say:
Desert this thread half way through
he already got what he wanted from this thread
i.e. all of your thanks
I have a question, and added your skype. Do you still provide help through skype or is this "project" closed and you don't offer any help anymore? I'm a total noob and i'm still at the very first step of your journey that i try to follow, but i'm already stuck , i'd like to ask you about the choice of my niche if it makes any sense.
Does this SEO strategy he uses still works to get to place one?
Because absolutly no social signals are in play.
I've been implementing this and here are my results/progress so far. I picked a niche (related to immigration information).
I did the research and made 22 original high quality articles. I used the heat map word press theme. Same plugins as OP. I'm using drop down menus and made a silo structure in the site. Looks alright.
This part is hard. 18 of my 22 pages have been indexed.
- I've made 6-8 high pr web 2.0's (squidoo, tumblr etc)
- I've written 3-4 articles on high PR article sites (ezinearticles erc)
- All of my content was unique, I made sure to send one link to my site and another to a authority site to make it look natural
- All of it was done with different user accounts to avoid google suspicion
- I bookmarked my site on 10-15 social book marking sites
It's been around 3-4 months since my site went live. And so far only 50 impressions. This is not working at all. I mean AT ALL. I have no clicks at all what so ever. I followed everything he did.... I dont get it. I've put in atleast 200 hours in this. can anyone point out what the problem is? I'm sure im not the only one.
What do you mean results people are getting? This is basic internet marketing information not a get rich quick scheme.
If guyz haven't been around here, BM have very important stuff to deal with now. MattCut has targeted him personally
Anyway, like any journey in the forum, when the goal is achieved.. It's the end . He put a goal, showed how to do it step by step, answered questions and finally achieved it ! !
Yeah, BM could be in serious trouble or offered TONS of money to spill the beans. I'm thinking the later
Since KHer0 didn't mention his current thread, i will. GO FOLLOW HIS JOURNEY!
