Hi Guys, I spent the last few days reading through LBrown's simple, yet really cool tutorial (you can view it in full here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...of-free-search-engine-optimization-newbs.html) and chatting back and forth with her about a few related things. I've always wanted to post up a journal/journey/case study but have always been really erratic in my projects so it never would have made for good, point-by-point reading. I was really impressed by this tutorial though and I thought I'd use the approach on one of my brand, spanking new sites (indexed, but not ranked yet) to see if this approach can actually work for newbies. Naturally I won't be giving away any vitals like the URL of my sites, the keywords I'm trying to rank for an so on but I will give you a snapshot below so you can follow along if you'd like and track my hard work and my site's progress using LBrown's wisdom. I hope at the very least the site sees some 'post-Panda/Penguin/Dinosaur/Hootie and the Blowfish update' ranking improvements so newbies to the IM game don't give up the dream prematurely. Cheers, guys!
