Lately there are plenty of people that posting here at BHW that they are giving up because they failed making money and they are broke. That's why I'm intending to show everybody that's having a rough time that its possible to do SEO and outrank and outsmart, even big corporations that spends millions of dollars every year on their marketing (SEO, PPC, Banners) with nothing but knowledge found here at BHW and little money. I'm going to keep the money I'm gonna spend to an absolute minimum to show how far you can reach being "broke" for all newbies and that it's all about brains and not money. Tools I'll be using to begin with: - Cheapest VPS I'm gonna find - HMA VPN (You can find free scraped list of HMA Proxies daily) - GSA - Captcha Sniper - Platform Link Reader (Free) - Scrapebox - Gscraper Free Version - 5 Private Proxies - Social Adr Lazy Free Major difference from other Case Studies will be that I'm going to try to explain step-by-step exactly how I do it and where I drop the links, instead of saying: "I built 10 Web 2.0 blogs with well-written unique content" The website / kw's Both website and kw are german, the reason for that is simple. None of my English speaking clients have time to fool around as they are paying money monthly for results. This is an old friend of mine that will pay me when he hits #3 on both his kw and he's not in a rush. The niche is in fashion / beauty industry and all big players with local sub-domains ranking in SERP. Example: www.brandname.com/de or www.germany.brandname.com etc One company has billion dollar yearly revenue, 2nd has 100's million dollars, while the rest has couple of 10 millions. KW1: Current position: #7 Exact Local Searches: 10 000 CPC: 1.22$ #1 - Only company that exist only in Germany. Marketing strategy is link bait (promotions, coupons, competitions) and buying ads on niche related blogs and high pr authority websites. #2 Innerpage of Amazon clone (Freaking skyrocket from #20 to #2 in less than 2 weeks) #3 Same stragety as #1, but have been around for 10 years and have tons of links from some high pr websites money can't even buy. #4 Strategy is High PR Networks #5 & 6 Same as #1 and #3 (Link Bait) #8 Affiliate blog using own high pr networks #9 Billion dollar revenue company. Until just recently they didn't pay attention to SEO. KW2: Current position: #89 Exact Local Searches: 6 600 CPC: 1.26$ #1, #2 & #3 are same sites as #1, #5 & #6 at KW1 Until last 2 Pandas same big sites used to occupy KW2 too, but they got knocked off first page and are struggling to get back. Onpage is good with titles, h1, meta and kw density around 2% - 5% Unique well written articles, but only 300 words on Frontpage with two pictures (kw1) and 400 words on the page that needs to be rank for #kw2. First thing is to do is to add more content to site get some social buzz.
