    Hey everyone, after reading these forums pretty intricately for a while now, i decided to create my first campaign. I have been reading that its much better to do than to read all of the time so i went and "did". My KW has 4,400 monthly searches and my domain is an EDM. I am trying to follow the thread by JamesH and also update the methods a little bit. And please feel free if i'm doing everything wrong or if im going down the right path. Thanks!

    Day 1

    Registered domain ($1.87 with GoDaddy) and hosting (2.99?/month with 1and1)
    set up wordpress with plugins that are noted by JamesH
    set up a clickbank account and put it on wordpress

    Day 2

    Wrote first article (208 words)
    created twitter account (currently 20ish followers/following 170)

    Day 3

    Wrote second article (200+ words)
    submit RSS feed to around 80 sites for back links

    Day 4

    • wrote 3rd article (200 words)
    • anyone know of a spinner thats free or has a free trial? i'm planning on buying thebestspinner but want to try it out first

    Right now i'm on the 5th page of Google and hopefully can go up in SERPS in the near future...
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 3

    I cannot PM you back because I've yet to hit 15 posts. But the best way (for me) is to get WP from wordpress*org and download the file, unzip it, and upload to your host. Then install it (super easy) and find a nice theme after that.

    For a free spinner download spinnerchief.

    Its completely free and has an excellent array of tools.

    It might take an hour or 2 to get your head around fully, but its a great piece of software for the price :D

    General opinion seems to be not to auto post blog comments linking to your money site. Also, search for "google farmer update" and have a read.

    3. will write new article tomorrow
    **edit** after dancing around on google, they put me on the 2nd page! w00t. hopefully i can get first page by next week after a lot of work to do
