    Hey everyone,


    I am performing a Case Study on a brand new website of mine which was registered around 2 weeks before the date of this post and only publicly mentioned to anyone but myself as of three days ago.


    For my own personal reasons I will not be revealing the URL nor the keywords I am targeting, simply the progress I make.


    Throughout this I will be providing every gig I purchase from SEOClerks, the time frames of when I buy them, when they're delivered and any other information I find relevant.
    This will hopefully act as a bit of a guide to everyone here on BHW of what can be achieved, how much it will cost you and the results you can get.



    Keyword Targeting:
    The keyword I have chosen has 9,900 Global Monthly Searches with Medium competition according to both the Google Keyword Tool and the freeware program, Traffic Travis.



    What I Have Done So Far:
    -Registered The Domain Name
    -Installed XenForo
    -Designed A Simple, Fixed Width Custom Theme
    -Created Some Topics And Had A Few Friends Do The Same
    -Created A Twitter And Set Up An Automatic Feed For New Posts To Be Tweeted. 1 Every 30 Minutes.



    What's Next:
    In 12-24 hours publish an article written about the keyword I am targeting.
    In 2 days from when this is being posted I will begin to purchase gigs on SEOClerks with a budget of $25-50 per week.

    Thanks for the case study.

    I'm interested in seeing how this turns out.

    Its rare to see case studies with specific services or gigs but these are valuable since its an unbiased review of the service.

    90% of your budget will go to a loss. 10% will be ok quality links, its the nature of these types of websites sadly. All the same there are some real gems on these sites 0.0001% it's just searching searching searching testing testing testing will pay off.

    Thank you for the comments so far and I hope you all enjoy this study. I understand some may call this a waste of money but I'm going to enjoy it. :)


    Progress Update:
    The article I commissioned to be written is now live on the website(The article cost me $10 of my first weeks $50).

    I am now waiting for the article be to indexed and then I will be purchasing two gigs to kick things off with my remaining $40 for this week.

    Great thread, I have subscribed and am interested in following the results. Did you purchase the article from seoclerks? How did it turn out and what gig was it?

    I appreciate the interest.

    Yes, I did purchase the article from SEOClerks which was $10 and optimized for SEO.

    This is the gig I purchased:

    No, SEOClerks is not my site. It's the site I have moved to after using Fiverr for my SEO/Website related Gigs and since I found a ton of great gigs and have been ordering them for other websites I thought this would be the perfect time to set up something like this as I had planned to launch a new website for a while now.



    Progress Update:
    Still waiting for the article to be indxed.I have purchased two gigs with my remaining $40 for this week now waiting on their delivery.

    These are the two gigs I have purchased:

    Why are you using that company only?
    Also, do you think xenforo is worth it? I'm starting a new forum soon and I xenforo seems a good alternative to SMF

    Hope that is 9900 exact searches. That medium competition figure Google is showing you is for advertisers bidding on the keywords. It has nothing to do with the sites your are competing against on the first page. At least TT shows low competition too.

    Wish I got a dollar every time I see that written by a newbie.....

    Minimal, so far but I will go into more detail with a proper progress report in 1-2 days about all that.

    I am using SEOClerks because I really enjoy their services and this case study wouldn't make as much sense across multiple.

    Yes, I highly recommend XenForo to anyone starting a forum. It's very powerful and very fast.

    To clarify, yes it is for 9,999 exact searches.

    Progress Update:

    After checking the SERP movement from the two gigs I ordered
    (
    http://www.seoclerks.com/Link-Wheel/1275/Build-Powerful-Linkwheel-and-Bookmarking-Backlink
    http://www.seoclerks.com/senuke-blasts/4162/Get-You-SEnukeX-Safe-3-Way-Attack-Fast-Rangking-Super-Powerfull-LINK-JUICE
    )

    I am now finding the article in Google when searching for the keyword as the 1st result of page 6.


    Now What?
    In 2 days from now I will have my next $25 ready to purchase new gigs
    Once I have confirmed and ordered the gigs I will post an update with what the new gigs are and any other SERP movement that has occurred.

    So you had those two gigs promoting your article and not your money site. Right?

    And how many links does the article contain pointing to your money site?

    I'm really interested in your case study. Hopefully it will help me understand how to get my website to climb the serps.

    Both the gigs I ordered had all links pointing directly to my article on the money site.

    Glad to hear you're interested. :)



    Progress Update:

    When searching today I see I have moved rom #61 down to #52.
    Tonight I will be adding in my $25 for the week and ordering some new gigs.
    I will post here after I have placed the orders and let you know the gigs I have chosen.

    Thank you and I have no doubt I'll get top 10.

    I am using a combination of the following:
    http://www.seoserp.com/web_tools/google_top_1000_serps_checker.asp
    Traffic Traffic Travis
    Manual Google searching via a fresh proxy

    And a few other things just to make sure the results are consistent.



    Progress Update

    The gig budget for this week was $36 and I spent to buy 9 of the following gig:
    http://www.seoclerks.com/Link-Build...get-you-too-the-top-of-Google-AMAZING-PACKAGE

    Essentially the gig is a blog post on a blog with a PR of 1-5. My keyword is placed within a related article on their and then each article is juiced with forum profile links.
