    Hi,

    I am a beginner on this forum (even if I have registred myself on BHW un 2009) and, I want to share you my journey. I don't have any $$$'s goal, I'll see, because it's my first niche.

    So, I just want to build a french blog on fitness / sports.

    I used @namhq89 KW service to find my french niche (because I'm french :D and do not hesitate to correct my english :) ) and now I have a ton of french KW and a lot could be use for later articles. @namhq89 spent a lot of tome to explain what hé offers (As I said, i'm a réal beginner and I didn't know what to give him for "seed word" :D

    As I run and do cycling 4 times a week, it's not a pain to write about it because I like that.

    My little expérience on BHW was to order some backlinks for a french running blog (it is 4 years old) and I found this "fun".
    This blog is not a real sell blog, I have some affiliates on it but it's just a personnal blog (on wordpress) which I do some report about my running and cycling expérience. There is no specific product (maybe I could to it mater).

    Money site

    Well, when I received my KW, I started to setup a WordPress blog with hosting. I found a domain on expireddomains.net.

    I have began to follow @Holzr and he's a great inspirator for me. :D
    So I read him a lot and did an excel sheet on what he did to follow him more easier. ;)

    Of the middle of March, my money site has 4 articles which have 1k to 2k words. The main page is just a page which have the small résume + photo of each articles (it's a common WordPress présentation).

    Tier 1 (Blog 2.0)

    For my Tier1, I started to build by hand 10 free blogs 2.0 whith somes articles on each blog : a main 400/500 words with a link pointing my money site / about / contact / sometimes 1 more article (maybe I need to add more).

    I just command PYRAMID Pyramid to @ofuture to have some backlink + Lover's blog Lover's blog @lover on the Tier1.

    Future

    Now I spend money to have 2 * 6 BLOGS blogs 2.0 from @seb_ali . This new blogs will link to other articles to my money page.

    Google didn't rank me (my money site is only 3 weeks ago): [​IMG]

    I think i need to have more diversity now and I must have link on my money site homepage.

    Hi,

    I received my 2* 5+1 blogs 2.0 for 2 new KW (on inner page).

    I started to add some unique content (with spinning).

    But Google hasn't started to rank me. It's too long ;)
    The main french blog is 3 weeks ago.

    On Majestic, the domain has 7 TF + 22 CF and my articles are similiar.

    We will see. :)

    Hey there,

    French member here too. You're on the right track dude, keep working at it and the rest will follow.

    Here are my 2 cents advices :

    - Keep on adding fresh content on your main blog. BTW is this a .com or .fr domain or a W*rdpress.com domain ?
    - Start now with social media ! Don't focus on google, it will end on ranking you anyway. There's a ton of traffic to be made on facebook. Add up a page about cycling and get some people to follow you.
    - Think about MONETIZATION ! Quick check on google : there are severals affiliation programs (https://affilae.com/interface-boutique-velo/fr/ https://www.lecyclo.com/programme-affiliation/affiliation.php). You can test some products and write articles like "Which is the best crankset ?"... giving your amateur opinion.

    Last but not least (here is the real gift) : the helmet became mandatory by french law a week ago. This is a sh*tty law, right, but what an opportunity for an internet marketer.

    See you

    Hi Nedie,

    - my domain is a .com (expired domain on cycling)
    - I have started with social media :)
    - I already used this affiliation (amazon, zanox, etc), we'll see

    Thanks about the tips for the "which is the best"!

    And 2nd thanks for the helmet, it's really new :)

    Google have started to rank me:

    What a shame I did not keep up with learning French. I will try to look in on your journey from time to time @jeff69.

    I read it as 'beginner with a French bulldog' lol, no offense, I speak French (10 years of studying and still need to improve) love France and French bulldogs :)

    All the best OP on your journey!
    One of the things I'd suggest don't get crazy over SEO, links etc, get crazy over your blog and content that you produce, the rest will come organically :).

    Hi all,

    SITE 1

    Google have begun to index my french blog and some KW are ranking fine: #11 (for 1.9k search by month) as you can see:

    [​IMG]

    The blog has 6 posts (each has around 1k 1.5k words). I used Amazon and some others affiliation links.
    I only do deep link for affiliation.

    SITE 2

    I started a new french Wordpress blog and I'm writing new content (it's very very long):

    [​IMG]
    I want to soon hit the first page of Google for the site 1 :D

    SITE 1

    I just removed where the result of keywords are nowhere because I split the KW into several projects on SERPLAB (but I keep the main KW to compare).

    The ranking in Google are improving every day (with some dance) as you can see:

    [​IMG]
    On 3 KW, I had a big jump, thanks to @Nikolavrum because I was lucky to receive 2 links as a review copy, and the links has been placed after the 9th of April.

    The metrics are nice and the domains are real sites:
    Domain 1: TF12
    Domain 2 : TF38

    The keywords are really nicely placed. :)
    Also, the communication with OP was very good and fast, it's great!

    I gave 1 KW with 1.6k search on a new inner page. I don't buy some services or link something on this inner page and as you can see :

    [​IMG]

    I have 3 KW:
    - #26 from N/A (main KW I gave to OP)
    - #48 from #241 (LSI KW)
    - #26 from #67 (LSI KW)

    I recommand his service on Guest Post!

    SITE 2

    Google has just begun to index it (only the homepage for now):

    Hi all,

    SITE 1

    It's always the same KW so you can easy compare between each screenshots.

    [​IMG]

    I added more and more content each week (1800 words) but it's hard to write :D

    SITE 2

    It still increasing: #28 from #78 one month ago :)

    [​IMG]

    I don't add any content so the other keyword are N/A because there is no content in front of them. I need to do it!

    Hi,

    SITE 1

    As you can see, it's stabilizing and I'll need some push for some keywords but I'm happy with that for the moment :)
