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.
