Hey BHW, Since discovering this forum, I've decided to try to begin my own experiment to learn more about SEO to improve my skill set for m 9-5 and also to have fun and make money on the side. Anyways, I bought a keyword from @ZlatanTheGod ($40) that has seemingly low competition and like 77k/month in traffic (gaming niche, mobile traffic), along with 2 domains from @Nargil ($55 premium and $15 regular domain) that are sorta gaming niche related (I was going to repurpose). (I read @warriorsam53 's Ranking under $100 journey experiment and that's where I got most of my initial ideas https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/case-study-ranking-a-cpa-website-with-only-100.919276/) My goal is to rank top 3 for this keyword. I probably won't monetize right away but will add in Adsense or a CPA (although I am new to this and don't know the best route to take for monetizing yet) So here's my strategy (laid out in steps so you can critique by referring to step #) 1. Set up hosting for both sites from different accounts to minimize footprints 2. Set up multiple web 2.0's to act as filters (I will write 3-4 articles for each, may take a while but already spent a lot on the domains and keyword) 3. Buy a third domain with keywords in domain name, with separate hosting (this will be money site) 4. Money site will include a download for the keyword, with a 1500-2000 word article about the game. Everything will be on the home page. I will add on Terms and About Us page as well, and possibly one other page with something similar to keyword. 5. Link premium domain to money site (41 ref domains / 11 TF / 23 CF) 6. Deciding on either blasting GSA links to web 2.0 as filter, then to 2nd purchased domain (10 ref domains / 0 TF / 14 CF) OR Buy some SAPE links. 7. Point domain from Step 6 to web 2.0 (filter), then to money site 8. Use URL shorteners and for domain from Step 6 and get links from GSA I realize I spent a lot of money on this but I feel alright, as it was all a learning experience. I also realize I may have missed some major steps and have taken unnecessary ones, so please critique my strategy and if you have any advice for me. Thanks! I think I will make this a journey, although I feel weird calling it a journey thread since I am such a newb and am going to be making a bunch of mistakes.
