    Hey guys! So I just got laid off from my 9-5 SEO job. Our company downsized the SEO team and I was very unfortunate to be chosen to go. So I guess i'm not doing a good job huh to be laid off :p. So moving on, I don't want to have another SEO job now so I thought of doing PPD on adult niche. You can follow along guys or comment.So here is what I did:

    I. Perform keyword research targeting my local area

    - I found a two-word keyword having 27,000 [exact] searches on my area

    II. Checked the competition on Google

    - Only 404,000 competitors! So much win!
    - the websites on first page are on blogspot domain, 3 are forums

    So I guess I'll declare a number 1 spot this early? LOL

    III. Set Up website and other resources

    - I missed Namecheap's $0.98 domain so I ended up creating a Blogspot blog instead. Why Blogspot not Tumblr? Oh I heard NSFW blogs on Tumblr will not be indexed anymore so I have no other choice. Also, I believed that Blogspot rank faster.

    - So I got twowordkeyword.blogspot.com

    - Downloaded a video template from Btemplates. The template was called Btube. Why? I am going to post adult videos. The template automatically creates a thumbnail from the video. Check that out. I think it's good.

    - I downloaded 9 videos related to my keyword. I uploaded them to the Blogspot blog that I created. Each of them having one unique page. I created another page which is a "round up" page where I wrote a 300 word local language article and linking back to the 9 videos.

    - Optimized each pages: Keyword on Titles, keyword rich URL structure, uploaded at least one relevant photo with alt text, placed 5 related tags, set the post location.

    - The 9 videos which I uploaded on Blogspot were cut in half where the fun starts. If you know what I mean.

    -I created 9 .txt files and put the passwords (eg. password 1 for video 1.txt). Then I uploaded them on cleanfiles. I separated the full length videos in 9 password protect zipped files together with .txt files which I put the download URL for the passwords.

    - Placed a download link below each videos on the Blogspot blog. Oh wait, I uploaded the password protect zipped files on 4shared.

    IV. Claimed the Blogspot blog on GWMT and GAnal
    - I don't know if this is a good move. My purpose is so I can target a specific location on GWMT.


    V. Link Building

    Basically, I did not build any backlinks on the blog for 5 days. At the time of writing of this thread, I have 0 backlinks.

    So today, I am going to start slowly.

    Day 1 (June 7, 2013 my local time) - I did 16 bookmarks on each page + homepage (4 diigo, 4 sqworl, 4 jeteye, 4 delicious). I also dropped one link on a local forum with the keyword. That's good enough for today.




    Day 1 (June 7, 2013 my local time)

    Traffic
    236 views from the Forum
    0 from Google


    Earnings from Cleanfiles
    $0


    Will update this thread everyday for the results.

    No they don't. What I did was upload password.txt on Cleanfiles not the adult videos.

    Best of luck.. That was a good decision on not to join that 9-5 job but you need to work more harder now to establish your own business and invest and save more so that you don't need to go to that job again.

    Watching your journey now.

    Don't worry you got laid off. It's far better to be your own boss anyway. Since you have decent amount of knowledge and experience, you'll know how to get your way through IM. However, people are mistaken thinking it's easier to work at home. When it comes to IM, it requires more of your time, energy, and work so expect to be exhausted a lot of times. :D Best of luck!

    Hey OP,

    In my experience, I think adult on PPD is forbidden/banned.

    Just a thought....

    Also, how much $$$ are you making a day?

    Hi! Uhm I am not uploading any adult videos on the PPD network. I uploaded a text file which has the passwords of the videos because the videos were password protected which I uploaded from other file download sites.

    As to the earnings, it's not good actually because the offers were priced $0.05 - $0.30 . I can't optimized it because of the traffic that I get. So I am trying to escalate the earnings with the number of downloads.

    Good luck with your journey! I would definitely suggest CPA over PPD, more $$$ in your pocket.
