I am a complete newbie with IM, though I have been building websites professionally for 15 years, and I understand the principles. I'm just getting started with a couple of side projects, and the one I think has the most potential is a MNS with an EMD. The keyword gets 9900 searches/mth and 4400 locals/mth with low competition. So, I got the domain for $5, built a nice looking site around it in WP with all the fun plugins (SEO, etc). It is a funny photo site. Anyway, got some content in there, got facebook and twitter going, got some adsense on there, and I've got a few backlinks. So, I've got it things started, but I don't know where to go from here. I think the site is indexed, but I'm not ranked, yet. Since it is a photo site, there's not a lot of text for keyword placement. What should I do? Add some text to each post, add keywords to meta, or what? Should I invest in adwords for a little while (I got a $100 coupon), just to get some traffic going? What about hiring out some web 2.0 articles, would it be worth it? Maybe just getting some fiverr folks to post my images on forums and reddit? try and go youtube for some traffic? What works best for a EMD photo site? Even though I'm not ranked, I am getting a little bit of traffic. The site is a week old, and I'm averaging about 3 uv a day. I have had a few clicks on adwords, I think I'm up to maybe $2. Some of this is from facebook, some from google. The whole goal of this is to set up a bit of passive income through ads, and then probably sell the site to try out some of the ideas I've seen on this forum. I don't need much to live on, but it would be nice to work up to $500/mth, and then I can stop working so hard as a web master. Any advice is greatly appreciated. I have been reading a lot on this forum, and I've learned a lot. I' just wanted to put some of it into action!
