    Hello,

    I decided that I will start a 0$ PPC project with a budget of 0$. I have read quite a lot of threads on this forum and I especially enjoyed the 15k/month thread and the video.

    Anyway I realise I might not make much, anything at all. However, I trully wish to learn a thing or two about SEO/Keywords/PPC/Advertising and I think this will give me the best opportunity to do so first hand.

    I have outlined a generalised plan that I will be following for a while, and I will be posting progress reports every week in the hope that more experienced members can give me feedback, direction and inspiration.

    My General Plan as of 07/02:

    Start up several free blog sites on Health and Electronics niches.

    I will be setting up 2 Blogs on Wordpress and 2 Blogs on Blogspot, I will be posting genuinly rewritten Electronics/Healthcare content.

    I will set up an Adsense account and point it to one of the blogs (CAN I USE the ADSENSE accounts to put up multiple adverts on Multiple websites?). I will then set up the advert on top of the blog, and add small - sized adverts half way through the articles.
    I will post at least 1 Article everyday to boost my rating/traffic (not entirely sure how this part works or how much content to post)

    ---------------------------

    So there you go, on a simple 0$ budget, I hope I can, In a week or two start making 1-10$ a day. If you have any feedback on these strategies, I would love to hear them.

    What I would like to know:
    I saw a few people talk briefly about Keyword Farming, and Mining. Also mentions of Keyword Research. I would trully appreciate if someone pointed me to the direction of a more in deth guide that describes the process involved researching and mining keywords.

    I would also appreciate any other hints or tricks to boost my Blog traffic, or SEO methids that I hadnt covered.

    In return, I will provide weekly status reports and link exhange.

    Hello, I have just finished setting up a Weight-Loss blogger:
    http://alexander0884.blogspot.com/



    I am also thinking about setting up a blogger on QUIT smoking.


    Any advice out there, am I doing the right thing with my weight loss blogger? I have also applied to Google Adsense with that blogger, I do not know if I will get approved or not, but I hope I will.

    Look in the PPC and SEO Forums as well as member downloads for ppc guide for dummies and how to SEO type things. The blog needs pictures, to be brighter.. I'd probably choose white background with blue text. Also you need to name it something with your keywords like weightlosstipsandtricks.blogsp0t.com. It should be doable tho.. just keep testing and you'll get it.. action is always better than inaction especially when its free.

    Thanks,

    Meanwhile is there anything I can do to try and boost traffic/any advice? Should I manually submit this blog to google? I looked around but I cant find any step by step instructions that dont involve all these abbreviations and shortcuts that I dont know about.

    yes you can.

    For traffic and indexing I find a bit of social bookmarking goes a long way. Especially the main ones like digg.

    I found it took more like a month to start earning money, but that was on my own hosting so a bit different.

    Also I'd change the top and bottom ads to the big square ones, they may look uglier but you get a whole lot more clicks.
