    So I've decided I've had enough with SEO. The constant Google algorithm changes, the having to write long, perfectly optimised articles with underlines and italics and H1, the backlinking and the comments...

    Frak it.

    Frak it all I say!

    So I'm venturing into social media for the first time with the aims of monetising some CPA leads. I've never had any luck with CPA and I'm hoping I can change that this time around. I'm approved with multiple networks.

    What I've done so far is this. I've set up a general domain with individual pages that have a CPA offer. All of them are email submits.

    What I've done is I've locked the actual CPA offer with a like lock. Users must first press the 'Like' button in order to get access to the special offer (The CPA offer)

    The general idea behind it is that I advertise on Twitter using TweetAdder, thus getting somewhat targeted leads, and then hopefully go viral on Facebook. So far, I have 4 accounts going in TweetAdder. I'll add about 5 accounts a day. These accounts are all following people, and thus getting follows in return, tweeting from RSS feeds related to their niche as well as sending out periodic tweets with links to the CPA offers. Essentially what I'm doing with those advertising links is basically asking people to RT the tweet in hopes of a tweet with a link to my CPA offer getting retweeted a lot.

    I've found this to be rather effective. Instead of just hoping someone retweets it, ask them.

    At the moment I have 65 followers across the 4 accounts. I've played with TweetAdder a fair bit before and have gotten plenty of accounts up to 500-1000 followers fairly quickly, so this isn't hard to do.

    I'm going to see if I can save up for TweetAttacks with money I earn from CPA, rather than dig into other earnings that are going towards other projects. I want this to be a completely self sustaining and separate project of mine, as if I was starting from scratch.

    So, follow, subscribe, hate, love, whatever. Hopefully as I learn, you can learn too.

    If you have any suggestions, questions, comments, please feel free to chime in.

    Alrighty, second day now.

    I have 104 followers across the 4 accounts now. I'm abount to start and create 4 more accounts and get those tweeting and following people. One of my accounts is racking up followers really quickly.

    I've noticed something though. Statpress is showing that people are visiting the pages, but the CPA networks stat system is showing that there have been no clicks.

    So my guess is that no one is clicking like. Anyone have any ideas on how I can improve this?

    I think I'm going to see if I can quickly hack together something that acts in the exact same way as the Like Lock, but instead of a like button being displayed, a simple image with "CLICK HERE" will be, and that acts as the like button, secretly liking the page in the background.

    SEO sucks if you're doing all the work yourself. You should try out outsourcing, or using software to speed up the processes; and get the quality work without wasting your time. And just spend some time on BHW and you get access to dozens of SEO's who post their findings about the algorithm changes.

    Good luck in the new venture though, just figured you may want to go back to SEO with this approach in mind.

    Right, I think my URL has been banned on Twitter. Is that even possible? Everytime I tweet with my URL in it my account gets suspended, but when I tweet normally with other links, it's fine...

    Bit of a bummer because I just lost 3 accounts and a good 200 followers.

    Huh. Social engineering for social networking sites.

    Ask for their phone numbers, and ask them to forward the gmail phone verification code, too.
