    Good Afternoon,

    I started the whole blog thing about a year ago today. Had some ups and downs of course. I decided it was time to take a step back and examine my sites to make sure they are performing at their best. SO I thought I would post and ask for a bit of help.

    For the record I did make many errors and fixed most of them and fixed a few more recently. I spent the last 3 months researching, reading and fixing what I could find wrong. I started this after I noticed my posts were not ranking very well at all.

    I've done a lot of reading on WP optimization as well + revisited my KW strategy (it was a total mess before I learned more about how to use them and how many)

    Here are the points:

    -Wordpress Site
    -Premium WP Theme
    -Paid Hosting
    -Paid Domain
    -Hand written articles and reviews by myself did not our source this (11 total)

    -no tags
    -no sidebar except for social media links
    -no calendar, archives or author page

    -Each article has one focus KW and 3 others (long tails + some normal)
    -Each article links to another of my articles (interlinking)
    -Each article links to outside sources
    -Each article links to social media and vice versa

    -Sitemap updated and submitted to google
    -Some links contain my keyword as anchor text


    Anything I missed? Hopefully Google crawls the site soon and the updates/fixes help.

    Hoping you SEO geniuses can help!

    Thank You!

    PS. Does anyone have recommendations on a SERP tracker? I tried long tail pro, and its ok but would like to explore my options. Looking for something that's got a one time payment.

    I should also mention I have started Tier 1 links on some of my sites, they are all manually made very carefully.

    I am currently using amazon but I am now exploring my options and thinking about using adsense in some blogs and click bank in others so I have a nice mix.

    My adsense is an aged account. I think its over 6 years old. I have been paid by them a few times already through other projects and experiments.

    No longer looking for a keyword tool. I decided to go with long tail pro and scrapebox rank checker since I already had scrapebox.

    mods please delete or close this. It should actually be in the whitehat section. Thank you!

    You already did your homework mate , if your content is unique and original , i would recommend you to use adsense for really good money.

    Good to know thanks! I'm building one blog and will try out adsense on it. If all goes well then I may try a few.

    I just started with adsense on a WP blog... it's doing great. I hope you found the success you were hoping for.
