    I actually learned this from a few friends in the past but ever since then, I've been testing this out like a mad scientist with my own twists, and results are beyond the roof! This method is one of the dozens I still use to this day to rank my churn/burn sites. I have a huge success rate so things are looking good and this has been working for me since March. I assure you most people who've read this won't take action and that's the #1 reason why you're not going to get far. Give this a go and just try it out. It will require time, and plenty of it but what motivates me is seeing the cash waiting for me inside my account. Well worth it.

    I usually go after some pretty hard keywords and it usually works well. If you've read the title of this thread and now asking yourself if you really can rank "anything" - yes, you can! However, harder keywords are going to require much more work (read below for more information) so with the right dedication, yes, it's possible to rank anything. This is most appropriate with a churn/burn site procedure although it may still work well for your main money sites if you tried. It's all about trying and not just dreaming up these things.

    1) Buying your domain, getting things ready.

    Go get yourself a domain. Usually, from experience, "brand" name domains work good so you might be better of getting something like that. Don't mention any of your keywords in it (trust me). Get some basic, reliable hosting and throw on Wordpress.

    So far, nothing complicated. If you're already reading this and moaning then either;


    • This isn't the right thing for you.
    • You aren't going to get far in IM if you can't be bothered to do a few steps.
    • Go try something else which you'll enjoy.

    Far too many people miss out on golden opportunities due to no confidence and lack of trust in themselves. Don't be one of them. When I say throw a wordpress page onto the site, don't make it a boring white page with 3 widgets on it. Get a decent responsive theme. You don't have to purchase one, unless you really want to. This forum has literally hundreds of free responsive themes so just go take a look and pick one you like.

    Click here to go the themes download page.

    You don't have to pick something fancy but pick something that will do the job. If you can't find a decent theme at the above link, then just use Google. It's not hard. You could even probably search for nice themes inside the wordpress dashboard.

    Now add your usual sales text / images / landing pages or whatever. Turn this into a site you want to get ranked for some big keywords.

    Take a look at my thread for copywriting tips.


    This isn't AS important but still something you should take care of. Your website's speed. Depending on your host, your speed shouldn't be too slow. I use Hostgator and it works just fine.


    • Remove all unnecessary plugins completely.
    • Remove unneeded images taking up space.
    • Install WP Total Cache.

    You can search around online for other tips to improve your speed too. Just don't make your site too slow and you'll be fine for this. Check your speed test and make sure it doesn't take 10 minutes for your home page to load.

    2) Pick the right keywords.

    Right, you've got the site set up and it's looking good. Now go find some profitable keywords, and try and get some challenging ones.

    I'm not going to divulge into detail about picking the right keywords. There are several other posts specifically for that.

    I'd recommend 3 good keywords to begin with but you can choose more / less, its up to you.

    Check this out here.

    3. Sorting out your on page SEO.

    This is probably something I spend a lot of my time on, trying to make perfect.

    To me, your on page SEO is just as vital as your off page SEO. You can't do one without the other being perfect.

    This is essential. Get a free wordpress plugin and just sort out your on page settings. It doesn't have to be 100% perfect but at least make it decent. Il be targeting 3 keywords just for the sake of this tutorial. Each keyword will have it's own unique page and this is what we will be ranking! Make sure that you set your permalink to be /%postname% and make sure each page's URL is just your domain.com/keyword. This is pretty important for this to work to the best of its ability.

    In each pages title tag, use the keyword you've chosen. Make sure to also use this keyword in the alt tag of your image/images and also possibly in any anchors of links to an external source - possibly an authority link / source.

    Remember, 1 keyword = 1 page. No more, no less. You will see why below.

    Each page should have around 750-1000 words of content and if you're promoting something like CPA (which in my opinion would be the best form of monetization), end it with a call to action link to the offer you built the site around. In this situation, it'd be helpful if the articles were unique and properly optimised for SEO. I personally wrote the articles myself and believe it or not, it wasn't hard. Of course, you may want to outsource this if you're lazy.

    I typically find it interesting to start researching the topic I will write the article about. This allows me to write more fluently and comfortable later on. Find an offer which you know something about rather than something which you've never heard of.

    4. Main structuring.

    I was going to a diagram in Paint but it was easier for me to illustrate this the old fashioned way...

    [​IMG]

    The above situation is for 3 keywords | 3 pages. This will vary for you.

    Create a page for each keyword. For 3 keywords, you're going to have 3 pages. Each page should have a corresponding category of blog posts and these should be dripped out across 3 or so weeks. Each post should link back at least once back to the related page. I know this sounds confusing but read it again two more times and you'll soon start to get it.

    If you're wondering how to add blog posts inside a wordpress page, check this out here. If that doesn't work, search around, and you will find a solution. It's not hard, just requires some work and dedication, which most people don't seem to have. These blog posts can be spun - they're only there for the link juice - but again, if you have the time to write actual unique blog posts or even outsource and buy some, then that's good for you!

    To just summarise till now.. each keyword should have its own page. Each page should have a corresponding category of blog posts and these should be carefully dripped out across 3 weeks roughly. Don't over do it but don't under do it! And make sure each post links back to the main page.

    Now for the interlinking. Randomly interlink the posts within a specific category. This spreads the link juice amongst the different pages and this ultimately helps get your site ranked very high in a short space of time. Time for an example. If you a page with 20 posts, then you would want to interlink those 20 posts between each other FOR THAT PARTICULAR page. Do not interlink the posts with the posts from other pages!

    From time to time, link externally too. You could link to sites like Youtube or Wikipedia or you can try something new and link out to sites like Pinterest and Google news. Just link out to something with authority and trust. This in turn, will give you some authority too over time.

    If you decide to spin your blog posts, then feel free to do this via any spinning tool on the market. That's up to you but make sure it's unique. We don't want no duplicated articles here. Alternatively, write the blog posts yourself and although this isn't really going to make a tremendous difference, it would still be a good thing to do if you had the time or the money to outsource it.

    As well as external linking, add in images and make sure to name the alt tags with your keyword! Feel free to add in videos too. Again, you can head over to fiverr and purchase a few videos or you can make some yourself in windows movie maker. It really isn't hard, it just takes time, that's all! In the end, you should have a site with a certain amount of posts divided into how ever many categories you chose.

    For example, if I wanted to go with 5 keywords, then I might end up with a site with 50 posts with 10 posts in each "category/page". Make sure you drip the content and not just add 10 articles in the single day. Make sure you properly interlink it inside and within the same category and most of all, make sure you reference to other authority sites too so that it gives you the authority. Doing this alone got me ranking very high for some keywords but obviously take in mind that bigger, harder keywords will require more posts, pages, etc.

    Most importantly, to be safe from over optimisation penalties, I did a few thousand bookmarks, wikis and social signals to dozens of longtails, generic anchors and a few URLs. This just helps keeps you balance and to avoid raising any red flags in regards to excessive use on specific anchors.

    5. Other link building.

    What I then do is go ahead and create a mini web 2.0 blog network. This basically consists of around 10 to 15 web 2.0 sites. Weebly, Tumblr, etc... you get the drill.

    Create a web 2.0 for each page on your main site. Again, follow the same principles here. Add in content, images, videos, links to external authority sites and most importantly, a link to the respective page on your main site. (Don't forget that!).

    So now you have what I like to call buffer sites. You should have around 10 buffer sites all pointing towards different pages on your main site. These buffer web 2.0s should be as natural as possible, so try to include images, videos appropriately in the right places and again, make sure your content is unique!

    Now go build links. Seriously, just do whatever you want. These are buffer links. They aren't going direct to the money site of yours. Just go crazy. Turn mental. Build whatever type of link you get your hands across.


    • Social posts.
    • Social bookmarks.
    • Wikis
    • Social Signals
    • Article Submissions
    • PAD Submissions
    • Doc submissions
    • Video submissions
    • Blog commenting
    • Q and A links
    • Social Media links
    • Web 2.0s
    • EDU links
    • etc.

    You get the idea. Just build whatever types of links you can find. Quantity is more important here compared to quality. Just add them into GSA and run it 24/7.

    But don't go off blasting porn links. Be smart.

    Sometimes, and this does happen, your buffer site may start ranking for some of your main terms so just in case such a situation may happen, it might be a good idea to add a CTA link to your offer on the buffer page. Should your buffer page rank well, you'd still be making money from it without having the person to be taken to your main site. Get me?

    Go out and make a few social media accounts for your site. Twitter, Facebook and Youtube seem to work the best but Pinterest, Tumblr etc would also work.

    Purchase a few fake likes, views, followers if you can or just get it via those exchange sites. Start posting, tweeting or commenting on relevant stuff you find online. This just helps keep things natural. If you were to rank page 1, and start receiving that traffic, it would be a good idea to have social media accounts which are also popular. It gives the impression that nothing here is out of the ordinary.

    At one point, you will start ranking for your main site. Give it time. If it doesn't happen, add more posts, target more keywords so add more pages, etc. Do more links to your buffer sites. Add more buffer sites. And so on. We're building the foundation for your money site with these buffer sites. Once your money site is ranking decently, it's time to take it to the next level.

    6. Main link building.

    Now that your main site has already got a solid foundation from the links it received from the buffer sites, you can start building links directly at the money site. Don't go firing away your main keywords. Again, play it smart. Instead of quantity, we need to go for quality! Limit your OBL and cap your minimum PR. You want good links pointing directly at your main site.

    Go after long tails, related keywords, etc. Don't focus at all with your main anchors. Leave that job to your posts / buffer sites.

    Also remember that whilst you're doing the link building, make sure you're also adding in more posts each day and make sure you're dripping them out! You will notice that the site will increase in ranks and you should start seeing traffic.

    This is almost a bullet proof method for me. Out of the times I've tried it, it's always seemed to work and I don't see why it would ever not work. Just follow my advice, add your own creative twists if you can and most of all, DON'T GIVE UP HALF WAY. That's not going to help. I know this is long and probably only 5% of you will actually go ahead and do this but this method works - so please take the time to try it out. The more you do this for your sites, the more easy it becomes and in the end you could probably give the whole task to an experienced and knowledgeable V/A who could be creating similar churn/burn sites for you daily, making you good money.

    As time goes on, start becoming more aggressive with your link building. Start buying proper quality links. Be more aggressive and get some serious black hat links. After all, if you're going to do something like this, you simply cannot "not" buy black hat links.

    Shit.. this is the end.

    This is one of the methods I use to rank for many hard keywords. I have a few sites at the moment ranking super strong despite some google updates and I believe they will continue to do so. If you put the work required for this, you will easily make some good money with the rankings you achieve. And the good thing is that you can teach this to your VA once you become fully flexible and comfortable with it. Have a go at this for 2-3 money sites and once they all start ranking and getting you some money, start thinking about other ways of making the creation of these sites and the handling of them easier, and faster for you.

    To sum up, regular dripped content + interlinking + quality link building + social presence + authority outlinking + smart buffer sites + slow but aggressive direct linking = ranking for some $$ keywords!

    I hope you found this useful and even if I helped one of you out there today I would have reached my target. This did take me a shit load of time to write but if I can motivate one of you to try this and make money then Id be satisfied.

    You say you do this for your "churn and burn" sites so how long does this method last before Google says no more?

    Very similar to what I do. Pumper sites are a necessity nowadays, you can throw so many anchored links at them without it really harming them. People are also a little too afraid to go atleast greyhat with links to their moneysite, if you don't have some seriously powerful links straight to your money site, you're not ranking for the really hard keywords. Period.

    Great guide!

    Thanks, rep added. Question: You have your main pages with the post excerpts on them. How many post excerpts do you show on the bottom of your page? All posts you add to that same category, or do you limit them like just the latest 3 posts? Was thinking of doing something similar with my new sites. Having main pages, and then short posts to continue to keep adding content. (I was just going to have a link to a blog like page) I like the idea of having them at the bottom of the pages. Thanks again,

    Jenny
