    I would suggest improving your keyword research to try to make sure that the keywords you are going after would be achievable for someone who is newer to SEO. On top of that I would like to emphasize how important original quality content is to Google. Even more so now post Panda. A lot of people will find they can rank micro niche sites first page for many keywords with zero backlinking, with quality content and good on-page SEO alone.

    Other advice that I would like to offer you is to just keep at it, and keep learning.

    You are kidding, right? The first post is 2 days old, you have no backlinks and your articles are about dreams and stock market (wired niche btw). Change all that and give mother G some time.

    ... I do have to admit that it's kind of a mess (to say the least:D)... What are your plans for that site? What are you trying to achieve? What do you want to rank for and how do you plan on making money with that site?

    Everything I have learnt since bhw and before:

    1.optimise your site (on page Seo), get good structure and layout, valid code, proper use of h1,h2 tags, alt tags etc.

    1.1 read bhw.

    2.do some research - no point chasing after high competition stuff, and no point going for keywords that people just dont search for - build a big list and then track all your SERPS.

    2.2 read bhw.

    3. Build a content plan, you need to be adding high quality content based on your keyword research, and you need lots of it. I don't care what anyone says, this is the hardest part of Seo and the secret to success, and if you can't do it (or can't afford to pay someone else) go home.

    3.1 read bhw

    4. Attack, attack, attack keep going keep motivated and don't stop.

    5. When you get bored of writing content, read bhw, get some ideas and learn some shit.
