I bought a new domain back in January. I felt that the niche I was targeting was unsaturated so I expected a quick ranking and some quick success earnings wise. Well I was not receiving any hits from the search engines until this past week and its almost the end of March! Most of my tactics were blackhat including Scrapebox. I'm currently ranked on page 2 for the niche I was trying to conquer. Hopefully my site will continue to rise. I almost gave up on this site but I'm happy to finally see my hard work paying off. I spent the past 2 months finding backlinks on wordpress blogs, .edu and .gov. Blackhat tricks CAN get you ranked and I learned that it can take some time (11 weeks for me).
