    Hi Everyone,

    I have decided to document a journey (My 1st IM Project) that I started about a month ago. I found a niche (Health) that is pretty open with several keywords to target. These keywords all range somewhere between 1,000 - 18,000 monthly searches. My partial EMD site currently has 80 articles on it and I'll be adding some articles weekly. I have written all these articles myself and will be writing the others myself as well.

    Financial Goals: 10$/Day at first, and after this is achieved I will scale it to 50$ a day, and once that is achieved then I will set a new goal.



    Task Goals: Optimize all the pages according to PhpBuilt Authority site guide in order to enter the SERPs at a decent position (Top 150), which I did over the past 2 days, so now I await some SERP results.
    • Each page targets a keyword that is at 1-1.5% density.
    • Keywords that are 3 or more words are kept at a density below 1% (According to Phpbuilt's guide)
    • The pages are interlinked via generic/relevant contextual links
    • Titles includes the keyword in them but isn't only the keyword
    • Keyword isn't in the H tags except for H1.
    • The keywords are assigned to categories that have been noindexed.
    • The Blog/Site name doesn't include the Keyword in it at all (Implemented this change based on phpbuilt's guide as well)


    My next task goal is to begin the back linking for 5 inner pages that target keywords with a minimum 3k monthly searches each. I will do this by building Web 2.0s, Article Directories, Social Bookmarks and then using a fiverr gig for the tier 2s & 3. If anyone has anything else to add about back linking, I would greatly appreciate any advice.
    • To prepare for the Web 2.0s I have written an article and spun it such that the spun articles are all 88% minimum unique, this should make creating web 2.0s easier.

    Guidance: I would greatly appreciate if those who are experienced in such journeys to offer some advice as to how to get into the SERPS at a favorable position without back linking (My main problem at the moment), as well as back linking tips in order to hit first page after getting into the SERPS.

    The majority of the CPCs for the keywords are somewhere between 2-4$ and the advertiser competition varies.

    I expect to be able to achieve the 10$ goal simply because over the next 8 weeks I am in recovery from a jaw surgery (lower jaw advancement) so I have all day to do SEO and build links as well as other tasks that might be required. Additionally, I have a younger brother who will be helping me out in building links and such, so there's basically 2 of us working on this project, which would hopefully speed things up.

    Monetization: Once I begin getting over 100 visitor a day, I will monetize the site through adsense. If BHW members recommend I also add some CPA offers or other monetization methods as well, I'll implement these suggestions.

    If anyone has noticed that I've made some sort of mistake or missed something completely, please let me know

    As previously said, the site is a month old, has 80 articles, is interlinked, I await their entry into the SERPS, & Now it's time to rank..... Shall we begin? :)

    All the best m8. Your target is pretty good. Start slow and then scale up.

    Hey Everyone, thanks for the support and encouragement.

    4 keywords entered the SERPS today after being posted for almost a month. We have decided to pick out 5 keywords and work on each keyword on a daily basis until we rank.

    Each Keyword has its own post
    KW1: 5,400 MS & currently at position 123
    KW2: 4,400 MS & currently at position 186
    KW3: 2,900 MS & currently at position 116
    KW4: 3,600 MS & currently at position N/A
    KW5: 4,400 MS & currently at position N/A

    The main problem we're having right now is how out of 80 articles, only 4 are in the SERPS even though we optimized all the pages several days ago.

    What we did today: We Worked on KW3.
    We built 5 Web2.0s, Posted 38 articles (manually spun) to various platforms such as phpfox & Elgg, & 1 Doc Share

    For the remainder of the day we'll be reading up on on-page optimization in case we missed something.

    The site yesterday got 26 visitors.

    Tomorrow there's no World cup matches, so we should be able to create more back links and be more efficient. One last thing I'd like to as is that I have subscribed to an indexing service and all the Tier 1s created will be put into the indexer.

    check if they are indexed yet

    site: w-w-w.yoursite.dotcom (dam I need more post lol)

    if the 80 articles are not returning in the SERPs they are not indexed yet.

    many ways to get em indexed. GSA link indexer should do trick or you may have to build a round of backlinks to them or it just might take months for them to index if you are not willing to backlink em of course you could pink with pingler but that don't always mean the spiders coming running right away. Proper site structure clean code site map etc helps.

    I have found embeding a youtube video on each post can index em quickly too.

    Link to each one from Google plus account too that should do the trick

    somewhere within that should get you there.

    Good luck

    PS if still not indexing after 4 or 5 days could have duplicate content issues within you site even if its all original content.

    We have checked and all the articles are indexed. As well, we have submitted the sitemap to webmaster tools, but still not in the SERPS for the particular keywords, at least not in the top 300.

    Best of luck. I am also working on an authority adsense site. When it comes to building links, I have realized I would rather have another nice post on my money site than a backlink so I focus all my effort on content and internal structure. Best of luck with your journey.

    Update 2:

    Hey Everyone,

    We were productive today and created many Elgg Posts & Zendesk Posts/Entries for Keyword 5 (4,400 MS, #NA). The keywords haven't moved yet, and no new keywords entered the SERPS yet. We'll keep building backlinks for the next few days. I'm wondering if anyone has an idea as to how many days after indexing a few links until you see SERP movements?

    14 Visitors came to the site today, which is lower than yesterday. We'll keep working at it until we see more results. I definitely would like some feedback from those who are a bit more experienced on what else we could be doing to rank :)

    We decided that on Sunday we will be getting the Tier 2 &3 gigs from Fiverr, as well as we'll spend Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday writing 5 articles each, that way by Tuesday the site has 110 articles on it. Hopefully by then we see some movement in order to motivate us to keep link building.

    seeing that you are putting hard work and time on your project, i have no doubt you will get there.
    One thing, When does a website become an "authority site"?

    Good Luck.

    So the niche we are in, there's not a single site that covers all the subtopics. Our goal is to have all the niche's subtopics in one place. I'm not sure when we can be called an authority site, but I assume once we are ranking for some key terms as well as have covered all the topics related.

    Truth in that b/c I find those will rank on page 2 or 3 from the get-go if the writing is done right.

    I've done this before by using keywords that have no competition.


    I have 1 site that targeted keywords with high CPCs ($5-$20 with high advert comp) but only have 100 monthly searches for each KW.


    I used KW scrapers to harvest really long tails and added those to my articles. Scrapebox's KW harvester works well for this, as does the free keywordshitter.com tool.


    I know it sounds crazy, but with 200 hundred articles on site like that, you can make a lot of money each month -- way more than you'd expect. Mine does.


    For me, it was better to target the low hanging fruit (really low comp KW and high paying CPC) on that site and save the link building for harder to crack niche sites.


    Good luck w/your journey and hitting 10 bucks a day to start!

    Did some backlinking today and the words did move up a few spots.

    One keyword is at 71 while the other is at 60
