    A few notes on the template:

    1) Where it says "keyword phrase" you usually want to use your exact keyword phrase. Of course, sometimes it won't fit properly into the wording of the sentence so you may have to modify it so that it sounds right. As long as you have your exact keyword phrase in the article title, first sentence and final sentence.

    2) I've given four potential article titles. Obviously you choose only one of them.

    3) This template has 330 words as is. Once you fill in the blanks you should have a 400 - 600 word article.

    4) A thank you if you found to this to be useful.

    Jr. VP reply template:

    Do a ________ (fucking, god damn) search you ________ (idiot, moron). The information is here if you just _________ (look, do a search, pull your thumb out of your ass.).

    I don't get why you'd mock this guy, I think he tried to give an honest contribution...

    not very constructive, when someone's trying to help others...why don't you post something constructive to add on to this?

    1-9 for your Keyword goodluck
    Even if you are using DNS you can print it out and read it off, just filling in the blanks, will keep your thoughts in order.

    Good post.

    It's because some people are inherently assholes and they have forgotten their roots.Like back when they where some dumbfuck noob that didn't know their ass from a hole in the ground.
    But now that they know everyfucking thing...They can just post a snide and sarcastic remark instead of making a useful post to a thread that was started with all intentions of trying to help other new people out!
    But I must admit!...was pretty damn funny....Sorry!

    It is kind of funny how people quickly poke fun at other peoples genuine interest to share. I honestly thought that there might be someone in this forum that could find this very interesting and useful.

    If I were to share some of my secretes as to how am I able to get a site indexed in less than 12 hours of purchasing a domain, I am sure he would be the first person begging for that information.

    Or, if I was to share how I am able to have my blog post show up in Google in less than 11 minutes of posting it, he would probably worship the ground I walk on.

    The truth of the matter is, I never knock anything that some has taken the time to share. Not everything on this forum is for me. Some things work, some things don't. I just find the things that will work and keep it moving. I do understand the need to bring another human being down. We are ALL on the same team. We are all looking for that piece of information that might give us the edge to make some money online.

    The idiot that made the comment had nothing better to say. I am sure he was just trying to increase his post count. I really do not care. I came here to learn, share and hopefully network with some really cool people.

    It is a good share mate--will help those that need a jog of their mind to get it going and writing. And that looked like it took some time to write up too.

    Jesus...did anyone notice that I THANKED Starlogic for his post? I grabbed the template and used it today. How many of you chipped a tooth off of your patella when you did that knee jerk reaction?

    The post explained to anyone who is devoid of a sense of humor:

    It was satire.

    I like the mad-libs approach; new take on an old problem. It actually gave me an idea for a simple yet completely helpful spinning program that uses a csv file to make bay-loads of content on a boat-load of topics. I never thought to create something so generic that I could plug it in any niche, (forhead slap).

    Thanks,

    JD

    You could actually automate the process in MS Word using a macro that did an find and replace on certain fill-in-the-blank key words. Or create an MS Word doc using forms and save it as a template that you can use over and over. Hmmm. Got me thinking too, now.

    Just gave you thanks for this starlogic - especially since it'll help me easily find the post again. It's pretty useful and some of those bullets - like "common misconception about {keyword}" could be used to create a whole article. Good mind jogger.
