    I've been around for about 1 year now, I've always tried the "blackhat" way to make money and I always failed (I was also short on money). Until now I've built sites around the money making idea that I've never asked why am I was building the website. The website needs to be reader focused, If the reader doesn't organically enjoys my site I won't get nowhere...

    So I went searching for expired domains in hopes of getting a website idea and suddenly hookgaming.com appears, it had 3 years age and now it has 4. I've been playing games since I was a kid, so it was perfect.

    Today I received a $1,5k investment from my parents. Since I got the money I've been building some contextual links to get the site indexed fast and also 25 articles pending.

    I bought around 10 articles focused in Gaming News so I can feed social networks, and another 15 focused in some keywords.

    I have done absolutely no SEO at all until today, and the site is ranking page 3 for a keyword.

    My SEO strategy:

    Tier 1:

    Buy around 200 High PR Links
    Hire content writers on iWiters to rewrite my articles, spun them and submit them on iWriter links database.
    Blog Posts

    Tier 2:

    Web 2.0 Profiles
    Blog comments
    Social Bookmarks

    Tier 3:

    Web 2.0 Profiles
    Wiki Links
    Social Bookmarks

    Its my first time investing in SEO, so if you have any suggestions I'd be happy to hear them!

    Also, if you can offer me anything I can be open to partnerships. Since this is not the post for that, PM me if you want to discuss details.

    I'll keep updating this post with keyword rank and site traffic.

    Remove your domain URL. It will come back to bite you and has hurt users in the past.

    It's never a good idea to share your site URL here. Also, why would you redirect your .com to a .tk?

    Good SEO strategy. Try to get more anchor text diversity in Tier1 & initially build links slowly.

    I never heard good review about IWriter Blog service. Without backlinks, you are ranking already, if you build some good authority links, you will be on the first page!

    And like others said, you REALLY need to remove your URL from this post. If you no longer can edit it, you might want to require the service of a MOD.

    Good luck and keep us updated.

    Your site looks great so far. It's great to have family like that who are willing to believe in you and help support your dream. Having their 'buy in' will definitely give you a push to know you're on the right path, as well as a sense of accountability to return their investment.

    Dont waffle around for another year... Your time to make this work is now!

    I see you are using adsense to monetize right now. On a heads up, adsnese could suspend you for the copyright in your images. Someone correct me if I am wrong asap. & good luck man. Have fun with it.
