    Decided to buy alot of the best fiverr SEO services by rating and some at random. I usually have good results with fiverr ( had bad experiences with article writing gigs)

    This is my site stats.

    EMD.org

    Exact local Search Volume: 1,300 CPC: $1.82
    serpiq:55

    Competition is med-hard for the first page and the site is a week old with 15 pages of unique content

    current ranking for keyword N/A

    money spent: $50

    tried to post links to the gigs but wasn't allowed to.

    Any questions?

    Yeah i'll follow this one . . . lets see what you get. Question what is your monetization of this site?
    at 1.3k search volume. . . (i hope you don't say adsense)

    Cool. I have not decided yet, why would adsense be a bad option? I plan on targeting a higher searched kw after this.

    If there is 1.3k searches a month. . and your page has lets say a 1% adsense ctr. Lets say you rank #1 and get 1k visits. At this point you get 10 clicks on adsense a month. Probably equal to around $3. It will take you around 2 years to get your money back even.

    domain (2 yr) = $20
    hosting = let say you use free hosting
    SEO = $50
    total = $70

    earnings $3*24 = $72 (yah . . you made $2)

    My point is . .if your targeting a 1.3k search term, it best be something like 'buy 2lb gold bars online' . . or something in the range of a sale = good money.

    I guess if your term gets a much higher google adsense rate ($1.50 click or something) . . but still, its just a lot of work for very little cash. That's my point.

    At least tell us what type of services you ordered, I'm sure you can rank with Fiverr, but it depends on what you are buying. If it works share at least some of your resources.

    Yea, it would be good if you could list what you've ordered so far... I know you can't post links but maybe a quick description of each and post links at the end of the test... something like: 1. 10 web 2.0 w/ SB Blast... or something like that.

    Here's my calculations FWI

    1300 searches a month - no1 position gets on average 40% CTR which is 520 visitors a month. Adsense ctr is quoted quite often at around 1%, even if it's 2% your looking at 10 clicks a month. $18.00 a month.

    However if the cpc is $1.82 for the advertiser you'll be lucky to get half that per click thru. More like $9 a month. 8 months to get your money back once you get to number one spot. But this is all pure speculation, there are so many variables that you'll never know until you try.

    I have sites that get hardly any traffic and make good money, others that get tons of traffic and make bugger all.

    IME, You can rank for ANY KW with enough fiverr gigs, I don't even know how some people can be questioning this. At the very least, you can order 5 linkvana posts for $5, doing this 10 times alone will probably rank you for this kw. I'd also go with web 2 pyramids and a blast to some of the links you already might have. I'd go with one gig per day for 10 days, this should be enough.

    Everyone calculating is assuming he only has one keyword that will gain searches. He should grab quite a few with his longtails also.

    since you cannot post the links what gigs what you ordered,then at least make yourlink building strategy and what week or day have you ordered
