    Hi!
    Short info about me, been hustling as a webdesigner on/off for a few years targeting small business and I can't take it no more. "I want to change that, could you come back and fix that, I want another color there" and so on.

    Anyway. Since a few days I've been setting up a new project, with around 10 articles on a few good keywords. (I think)
    I will try to be pretty straight forward on what I have going on since most of you *for obvious reasons* aren't.

    This is my site so far (-the header)
    Landing page

    Products page

    Program page

    Yes, I'm in the fitness nische and I will try to monetize this journey with clickbank, commission junction aswell as amazon.
    As of today I have little to zero knowledge on how to see my stats on google, is there any free tool similar to semrush?

    Earning so far:
    Clickbank: $ 0
    CJ: $ 0
    Amazon: $ 0

    I'm creating this journey to give myself some extra motivation and a good tool to follow my own history. And please excuse my english, not a native speaker/writer.

    Day two:
    Just ordering more articles, started to include som amazon products and started my first (probably the only) facebook campaign, just to see how people respond to the new website.

    Also started to rank on a few keywords which is good. But none of my main keywords which is worse... :D

    But slow and steady wins the race.

    Day 6:
    After being indexed with a few pages and articles I noticed a change, I could no longer be found on any search engine. I dont know why since I'm fairly new to the game of seo.
    Was a bit frustrated and searched bhw for some info. I came across a thread were I read that by commenting on 8-10 popular yt-videos I would be indexed within 24 hours. ( I also saw that this thread were from 2014) but I was still in a minor rage, so I went with it and placed 8 comments on related youtube videos.

    Still no progress, 36 hours later.

    Anyway...

    Found a good set of KW´s - Buying another 3k words
    CB Hops - 59
    Instagram count 571 (+300)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Late night update, just found out that google penalized a ton of affiliate sites due to lack of content yesturday. May it be becouse of that I lost all my rankings?
    Just cloaked all my links (should have done that first but...) is my site useless now or is it possible to climb up again if I got struck by that wave?

    Day 7:
    Placed an order of 7 new articles from Iwriter.
    Started to build one web 2.0 linkbase (need content)
    Been posting 4 links from 4 different outdated pr1 tumblr blogs
    Been active on reddit, placed 2 informative links to my page.

    Also tried to find any good off-page seo option, which I havent. Really need to gain traffic and convert into sales soon.
    CB Hops: 72 (Missleading, most of the new ones is from me due to the cloaking of the links)
    Instagram count: 643 (+ 72)

    Breakdown of organic vs paid traffic? Definitely worth tracking conversions/hops by source if you have the technical know how.

    Thank you!
    Organic 6%
    Social (paid) 46%
    Direct/refferal 48%

    These numbers looks really bad, but my site is new so it's all expected.
    The sad part is that my experience ends here. I can code, design & on page seo. That´s about it. So either I wait for my kw's to get in place. Or I have to do some serious off page seo research. Haha.

    Slowly starting to rank, still with zero backling due to me being a complete noob -.-

    Day 13:

    Been a few boring days.
    Bought a good seo offpage boost from this forum, (no useless spam links)
    Bought a new article.
    Been doing meatheads method (just a bit). Joined a forum in my niche, placed my url in my signature and posted relevant and uselfull comments.
    Also did the same on reddit and left a link. But I dont know if this will hurt my ranking, so I stopped after a few posts. (don't want to over do it)

    Got like 200 visitors, another 10 CB hops but not much.

    I also found a cool method to place good links to relevant sites without anyone knowing. I'm sure many of you already know. But for you who doesn't, checkout "Hidden link method" ( I cant post links yet)

    Besides that I removed all my cloaked links due all the errors that came with it.

    So here is the stats so far.
    Instagram: 826 (+82)
    CB Hops: 95 (+12)
    Amazon clicks: 66 (+24)
    Sales: 0

    Total in sales: $12.34
