    I am starting a new journey.The purpose of this journey is to execute as fast as possible. I do not have a monetary or ranking target. My only target is to take action and see what the results are.

    Why am I doing this?
    I have invested quite a lot in this project.My website is already up and it is getting decent conversions.

    Now that it is time to do some actual SEO I have started to procrastinate because I fear that Google will penalize my site if I go wrong(Never ranked a site on 1st page before.Max page 2 for a low competition keyword.)

    Basically, I am afraid to fail because I have invested quite a lot of money in this project.

    I've become too attached to this website which is stopping me from taking action.

    I am going to go ahead anyway. If it ranks, I bank.If it doesn't, I move on and hopefully learn new things from the failure.

    Gameplan

    I'll be following Berkays Guide - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/818736-method-spoonfed-rank-low-medium-low-comp-keywords-google-page-1-30-45-days.html

    Won't be following it to the tee.Will twist it up according to my website and niche requirements.

    What I have done so far

    Bought an authority domain. (DA 19,TF 14)
    Outsourced the web design. (Landing Page with Content Locker)
    Built Social Profiles (FB, Twitter,Pinterest)
    Bought some social signals
    Made a video for Youtube and ordered some High retention views, likes and subscribers. (Sent a GSA blast to the video)
    Built 2 High PA Tumblr links.

    What Next?

    Week 1
    Will build around 15-20 Web 2.0.

    Although Berkays guide requires me to have PBN in Tier 1 I will be skipping that since I do not have the budget as of now.

    Week 2
    Will use FCS Networker to build Web 2.0 links to Tier 1.
    Will buy a PBN blast from a BST to Tier 1

    Week 3
    GSA Blast to Tier 2

    Week 4
    Evaluate

    It's almost 1 AM. I am now building one more Tumblr. Then I'll be writing down my daily tasks for the next 30 days. And then I'll call it a day.

    Starting tomorrow, the 30-day journey begins.

    Done setting up the Tumblr. Did not take long since I had the content written already.

    Tomorrow I'll be setting up a few Wordpress and Bloggers.

    Night.!!

    That is a good guide you are following, mix a few other link types and you will see good results. Good luck

    Day 1

    So I was supposed to set up Wordpress and some Blogspot today but had a change of plan.

    Realized that I don't have the content/filler content ready for setting up 15-20 Web 2.0

    So I wrote about 5 articles today for the main content where I'll be placing the link.

    For filler content, I scraped about 10 from Kontent Machine and spun them using WordAI(Signed up for the 3 day Trial). So I now have 80% of the content ready.

    Also, scraped a few over-blogs.Managed to get 3 extremely good one (2 PA 35+ and 1 PA 40+)

    Day 2

    Setup the Over blog that I scraped yesterday.

    Placed the seed article.

    I was spinning content like crazy today with WordAI to use on my web 2.0s as fillers. However, it caps its trial period at 20k wordspins which really sucks because I still need content for about 10 more web 2.0. Overall I found it to be a real timesaver.
    I can't invest in it now but gonna buy it in the future definitely.

    Anyway, while I set up the remaining web 2.0 I'm going to buy some social bookmarks and article submissions.
    Also, gonna do some manual blog comments.
    Just adding to the diversity.

    Received report for the social signals which I bought a few days ago.

    Solid plan, I'm interested in how it turns out! Good move going for the page 1 rank, no risk no reward right?

    Whats up people!!

    Updating this journey after a long while. Started it on 2nd Feb and according to the 30 days plan it should have been completed by 3rd March.

    But I am done with everything. All the 3 Tiers according to Berkays Method. Was super busy and did not get the time to update it.

    Here are the ranking updates on various keywords

    Screenshot_2.png

    If you compare with the previous rankings you'll see there have been some major jumps. :)

    I guess I'm all done with it now. All I can do is wait and watch. Hopefully, a few keywords should pop up on page 1 in 2-3 weeks.
    Gonna wait until then and then devise a plan accordingly

    What I've Done so far

    Tier 1 - 10 PBN Links
    10 High PA Web 2.0
    25 Social Bookmarks (I guess I overdid this)
    Social Shares

    Tier 2 (On Web 2.0 and Social Shares) - 100 Web 2.0
    200 PBN's

    Tier 3 (On Tier 2 Web 2.0)- GSA link Blast

    The video I made for this website at the very beginning is ranked #2 - #5 for various keywords.

    These are my earnings from the video

    Screenshot_3.png

    This earning will only go up once the site gets ranked. *fingers crossed*

    I've got a music gig coming up which I have organized in a week and then my exams starting in 2 weeks. So I am glad this finished before time.

    I'll update this in a few days again.

    Hey, will totally be following this even if it doesn't work out fully.

    You should make this a monthly thing, with new sites. It's a really good strategy.

    Also how hard was it to find a niche? I'm totally lost on what kind of niches I can churn/burn with.

    Good luck... I think it will take bit more time but still 100$ when not even 30 days completed is great

    Nice results. You should not stop building links, keep building them slowly.
    Also did you built links to youtube video or it ranked itself?
