    I came across a keyword with virtually NO competition about 1 1/2 weeks ago and after reading lots of threads on SEO here at Black Hat World I decided I would give it a go.

    Now, thanks to all these great threads, im ranking 5th site down on the first page.

    Now if only I could get it looking nice so I could monetize it better. Currently running word press on it. Have about 5 posts, the most recent post being a "guide to getting *keyword*" post. I dont plan on posting anymore, as I want that post to be the first thing people see. (Its in the health niche).

    It has 2 ad sense ads in it, and is pretty much advertising a clickbank product. Also have a CPA offer for a free ipad over in the side bar, so if all else fails maybe they will go for that lol.

    I was thinking that maybe I should write a small ebook and stuff it with affiliate links, then create a squeeze page and have it say "FREE GUIDE TO *keyword*". Then put a content locker right ontop of the page. Does anyone think this is a good idea?

    If so, whats a good converting content locker network? Ive tried CPA Lead/Leadbolt but not in a while... which one has higher conversion rates for you?


    ALSO - Are you allowed to put a content locker *over (not of) ad sense ads?

    Thanks for reading!

    Quick Note: Just make the post you like a "sticky" and you can continue posting with that article "stuck" to the top of your blog...

    Thanks for the tip! Didnt even think about that.

    I searched on google how to sticky a post in wordpress, but all the guides I found showed a little tick box on the edit post screen. I dont seem to have that. (Or im over looking it, which is probably the case)

    I just set the site up last week, no money yet. Not a lot of traffic either, need to setup google analytics so I can see.

    My domain name is *the keyword*.com

    I searched the term via Tor/several proxies just to be sure it wasnt me and all of them showed it as 5th. (6th in UK)

    Let me guess. 1.000.000 isn't ''exact''. Am I right?

    Exact search ("keyword") Im #1. Broad search im number 5. D: Wish I could prove it to you all but I dont want to give my keyword away.

    No one as answered my question about adsense yet though D: Judging by the responses maybe I shouldnt have posted this here lol...

    Go to adwords keyword tool, type your keyword in the box check the left side for Match Type, tick the the [Exact] option. then click search, then youll see the exact searches your keyword have in a month. :)

    Did you honestly think you can "make it" with 2 weeks of SEO on a keyword you don't even know how to monetize?

    At least you gave it a go, but being realistic, it takes time to see results.

    No, I didnt - which is why I was surprised when I *thought* I was ranking.

    On the bright side, I can still use the hosting account and maybe find a REAL keyword this time lol....

    thanks for the replies...
