    I have recently abandoned my project to build 100+ MNS sites as I realised managing, building backlinks and adding content for 100 sites will take up too much of my time. Also the profit margins per site are too small, I may get some that bank but others that are crap. Not to mention hearing MNS sites getting smacked all the time.

    So I have now moved over to building a single authority site packed with quality content. This site will also have a developer working on the social integration because this the niche im targeting gets large amounts of traffic from twitter and facebook.

    Before I attempted building this authority site I wanted to fine tune some of my methods and also learn more about building a SAFEish link building strategy.

    In the meantime I created a site to target a very competitive keyword with 30k exact searches a month, just to see if I could. It's in the mobile review niche.

    You ask why am I giving out my Niche and so much information. I am ranking for the UK Google site and have the .co.uk .org .com EMD's so I feel comfortable that even if someone worked it out they couldnt affect my ranking's if they tried!!

    Competition

    Everything I checked the keyword in e.g. traffic travis and market samurai reported it as very difficult. The sites ranking in the Top 10 all have the keyword in the Titles, H1, Description etc etc. The sites ranking in the first page have up to a million backlinks to the domain but none above 1000 to the page. I think this was my main secret to success and should be something that anyone doing keyword research should add to their analysis. I have tried to find information before on how much backlinks to page vs. backlinks to domain affects ranking, but couldn't find anything definitive. That's me sharing a trick I use that works and is not too well known. Enjoy

    This site will be on a .co.uk targeting UK traffic as the rest is mostly from India and AUS. Uk traffic accounts for 20k of the traffic. This site also has potential related and long tails keywords with a combined exact search total of 100k+

    Domain

    I purchased a brand new domain as a lot of people on this forum have said before "don't expect to rank for a competitive keyword for 2 years with a new domain" I thought this was bullshit and this case study proves it.

    Site

    Hosted in the UK utilizing wordpress with a premium theme I purchased. The theme is not of the CTR variety and is the best I have found for review sites.

    The homepage of the domain was redirected to a post which was optimized for the main keyword.

    Content

    All rewritten by me using TBS spinning every possible word until copyscape passes it while maintaining complete readability. I added 15 400 word articles. Only 3 of the articles are targeting keywords and the rest are just there to add value for the visitor.

    Onsite SEO

    All possible tags where optimized for the keyword. Title, H1, keyword density of 5%, Alt image tags, Bolds etc etc. All pages that target a keyword had a link on the page of the main article.

    Offsite SEO Strategy,

    All link building targeted 3 keywords that you could call a brand name long tail.

    I firstly had one of my SEO guys I met on here, Create me a pyramid with 3 tiers of very varied links. I wasnt going to name the provider as i didnt want this to turn into a self promotion thread but keep getting asked.

    You can find him on here Blackmind

    This consisted of:

    1st tier - 6 web 2.0 properties linked to my money site.
    1st tier - 100 + 30 .edu profiles with articles, info e.g. bio, picture and location (Becarefull creating these directly to your money site) I had a pro do it and its been find so far
    2nd tier - 20 profiles to 3 of the web 2.0s then 20 more profiles to the other web 2.0's
    2nd Tier - 20,000 scrape box blast from fiverr pointing to the 6 web 2.0s plus some by my SEO guy
    2nd Tier - Manual blog comments on the posts with the following page rank PR4:- 1 PR3:- 4 PR2:- 6 PR1:- 4


    Results
    The site jumped into the Serps strong ranking 21st for the main keyword. it then moved up to 14 and bounced around the second page.

    I then decided I would build more links to push it to the first page so I bought senukex. If I did this again I would create far less of each type of backlink (Quality over quantity). This is not a senukex how to!!!

    I built the following pyramid.

    1st tier - 50+ web 2.0's, 50+ 2.0 profiles
    1st tier - social bookmarking of 5 pages on money sites. this was to the whole list in senukex with varying success rates
    2nd tier - 300+ forum profiles pointing to 20 of the top PR web 2.0s
    2nd tier - article submission to senukex's list with anything PR1+. that's a few hundred I can't confirm as I don't have it any more
    2nd tier - 20,000 scrapebox blast to the web 2.0s


    This was all done over a 2 month period after all the content was added and indexed by Google.

    Results

    2 weeks after completing the second link building project the site moved onto the first page in 10 and sometimes 9. It sat here for a month without dancing around, so I once again decided to build more links.

    I bought the below services from providers on here:

    1000 Wiki Do follow links
    10 high PR home page links on a private blog network from the provider who did the first run.
    100 Google +1's


    Results

    A couple weeks after purchasing the new backlinks and pinging the shit out of the wikis my site moved up to 7 then back down to 9 then to 8 and finally to position 6 were it sites most days sometimes it drops to 7 also. I am now getting some decent traffic and get about 1300 impressions on average a day. I have also moved onto the first page for the other keywords I was targeting and on page 2 for some that I wasn't.

    I will be creating a blue print for creating an authority site if the one I'm creating separate to this succeeds.

    I hope this helps some of the newer guys.

    Also i only spent $150 dollars getting this site ranked which is a tiny amount of money. Spend wisely and you can get good results.

    For the dubious amongst you.

    Proof

    i try to let the backlinks get indexed naturally but any that give me trouble. e.g the wiki links i used indexkings.

    As far as cost:

    1st link building run - $95 or there about's
    2nd link building run - $5 As I used the 14 day trial of Senukex
    3rd link building run - Cant remember exactly but no more than 50$ in total.

    Nice thread you have started here :)

    Many people are reluctant to target difficult to rank niches but this is a great example that with the right strategy you can rank for them without it taking years.

    Thanks for sharing how you did this.

    Ofcourse i only didnt put it in the thread because this is not a promotion threads its about a strategy.

    The provider is called blackmind not all of hes services are listed here as some he keeps for select clients like the blog network. The package I got I don't think he sells on here its all 3 of he's services rolled into one. just ask him and he will hook you up.

    I have ranked about 4 sites with this guy and can vouch for his services effectiveness. Im not sure if its because i do a lot of business with him but he also tracks my ranks and updates me when theres movement, he seems to get genuine enjoyment out of seeing site rank well that he has worked on.

    Guys ill add the impressions graph from my webmaster tools with a timeline of the seo services added.

    IM and SEO never stops and although im getting decent traffic im having a hard time monetizing it as adsense shows adds unrelated to my site due to the keyword having a word with another meaning Imagen you have a page targeted to the Samsung Galaxy S2 ill bet adsense shows ads related to the word Galaxy.

    If anyone has any ideas that would be great. I have thought about adding a CPA ipad giveaway or something but not too sure yet.

    22k are from the main keyword and 5k from the other 2.

    CTR is very LOW at the moment still 2% which should be higher for 6 but we shall see!!

    A Keyword that has 30 000 searches in Google Keywords Tool brings you in 1300 visits a day?

    I Find that hard to believe.



    I am now starting a project for a keyword that has 250 000 in google keywords tool (local search). I own the .com domain for the keyword so it's going to be easy. If I get 1000 visits a day damn i'll be happy.

    they are just search impressions...... the CTR is around 2%

    This blueprint is about ranking not converting search impressions to visitors.
