Here's my journey on ranking a website from scratch on a supposedly very easy keyword. I have a pretty low goal to attain, that is to earn 10$ a day. Even I only land on the 2-5th spot, that would be a real treat! I chose CPA because from what I gathered, it's one of the more easier ways of earning online. I have a total of 150$ only as an investment so I'll try to make the most out of it. This means doing lots of things manually to try and save cost. Keywords [$19]: Buy HIGH volume CPA keywords with LOW competition by @ZlatanTheGod & @BassTrackerBoats Domain [$0.88]: from NameCheap. Hosting [$1/m]: Serverhosh by @tutughosh Keyword Competition Taken from my review at post number 215 of the thread: Spoiler: more details RAW DATA as a review. Took a 4/100 competition keyword with 12100 Global searches per month with an additional 13/100 competition keyword with 12100 Global searches per month. Around 3900 USA searches a month for both keywords for only 19$. Plugged them in kwfinder and showed a result of 18 & 18 respectively. Plugged them in Ahrefs and only the second keyword was on their database, keyword difficulty of 0. Keysearch has the keywords as 18 & 23. First Keyword: 9 spots - PA 1, top 1 - PA 30 Second Keyword: 4 spots - PA 1, 4 spots - PA 10-20, 2 spots - PA20+ But the best part was it gave me similar ideas for other keywords and was able to extract about 10 additional keywords. 10/10 would bang this service provider. I'd probably setup a journey as well on this forum for this keyword. Busy putting up the site, since this is my first serious try at SEO, I'd wait for @BassTrackerBoats guide on how to SEO the site and the best way to monetize it. SEO Plan My current plan is pretty simple and laid out in the image below. I like to keep things organized and planned. This is my starting plan right now, might tweak the ratios later on as I see the results from the packages that I buy. Might need to double the amount of links but I want to achieve these ratios first before buying more links. Shopping List for Services: Next Tasks Build Parasite Pages (Tapastic, Reddit, etc.) Blast each with at least 10,000 spam links. Replace article on home page with a 2,000+ word original article based on the keyword. Build a 500 word article and manually spin it according to the tutorial by Matthew Woodward.
