    What is this thread going to be about?

    Well, it will be a complete case study about getting ranking #1 on google, based on ALL of my projects that I am currently working on.
    So I hope this will be a great place for newbies to learn. I will not hide anything I'm doing - I will give you 100% insight in my actions. Ofcourse without revealing my niches. So if you are just starting out, this is a great thread to read, also if you already are a IM or SEO veteran, we - the newbies - might need your help, because I'm also planning to ask some in this thread.

    How much time do you want to put into this?

    I will work from 4 to 8 hours a day.

    Who are you?

    I will start with a little introduction, as I think not many of you know me. My name is Bart, my online alias is PinkyX. At the moment I'm studying marketing at one of the top business schools in Europe (almost completed the 2nd semester bachelor degree).

    Whats your background in IM/SEO?

    Well, I've created my first website about 12 years ago. My first earning website (with adsense) was created 4 years ago. It was earning about 1-2$ on average day, with 200 UV a day.
    Then I've deleted (YES!) the site and completely forget about IM for 2 years.

    2 years ago, I've joined a site called wealthy affiliates, learned about onsite SEO, article writing etc. I've made around 200$ and lost interest in IM after summer holidays ended again!

    Last summer holidays, I had a FB JV with my friend, which made us around 500$ in 2 weeks, but after that I had some personal stuff going on and just didn't had time to continue.

    About 12 weeks ago I have joined this forum, since then I've been reading, reading, reading and reading everything I could.

    Ok, so as you know a little about me, now I will go straight to the good part.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    What are your resources, what are your projects?

    First of all, I've got 600$ (at this moment I am waiting for this money because I've transfered it from one bank account to another, because for the second acc I've got a credit card I might use to do the payments).

    I'm planning to buy some tools, and I would like to ask you guys which tools you think I should buy for this case study (I would like some veteran member here to give me a little advice). Remember that my budget is limited and I also need a VPS and proxies.
    MY BUDGET:
    I can put a one time 600$ into this + 50$ monthly.
    Should I buy some services? Which tools? Should I outsource some articles (my english is very good at C1 level - although its my 3rd language).

    MY CURRENT PROJECTS AND MONETIZATION PLAN:
    (I will update you with info about my keyword research after Traffic travis will start working again).

    ------Site #1------------
    This website is around a mmo game.
    Age: 2 months
    Nr. of articles: 2
    CMS used: wordpress
    EMD: Yes, for one of 2 main keywords, but it contains the 1st keyword also.
    MONETIZATION PLAN: I want to monetize it with CPA offers or content locker.

    ------Site #2------------
    This website is around a online game.
    Age: 1 months
    Nr. of articles: 1
    CMS used: wordpress
    EMD: Hyphened domain for one of 2 main keywords, but it contains the 1st keyword also.
    MONETIZATION PLAN: I want to monetize it with CPA offers or content locker.

    ------Site #3------------
    This website is around high profitable niche for adsense.
    Age: 1 day
    Nr. of articles: 1
    CMS used: wordpress
    EMD: For the main keyword yes (although it has got very high competition).
    MONETIZATION PLAN: Adsense, CPA.

    Whats the plan?

    Im going to add 6 articles a day to the site #3, and 2 articles per day for sites #1 and #2 (all written by myself) until I will get the tools to do SEO magic.


    PS:
    here is a little template for my daily updates, hope you guys dont mind me posting it here, if you have some suggestions for the daily updates please let me know.

    Content lockers don't really work that well with search engine traffic. Judging by the way you write I suspect you're Dutch. Good luck.

    Well I'd just like to say, I don't think you need to worry about outsourcing articles to a native English speaker, I'm blown away that it's your 3rd language!

    First of all good luck and have patience cause its gonna take a while for you to get to the top because you`re domains are new. You`re gonna be an underdog but keep at it.... you`ll get there. Second of all tools... well considering you`re budget, i advise you not to go all out on tools you`re better off buying services. You could buy lets say scrapebox and TBS(if you plan on doing some spinning) but that about its. 3rd of all use some cracked softwares like SEO POWER SUITE or (*cough* senukex *cough*) so you can use your budget on other things and they`re really good trust me i use them on a daily basis. Last thoughts.... Subscribed to this thread it will be an interesting read. Cheers !
