    Hi Guys,

    Here I want to share my story of how I built a Technorati Top 100 Business blog in 12 months.

    The BlackHatWorld community has had a fundamental part in the growth of the blog - so I would like to thank you all for that. Please let me know if there is ever anything I can do for you.

    Anyway the blog has done a bunch of things in just 1 year-

    • 632,452 pageviews
    • 3.6 years spent reading the content
    • Won 5 awards
    • Made a $73,000 profit

    I have written a very very detailed post that takes you through my entire journey & everything I did to get it to where it is today step by step.

    What You Will Learn

    • How I grew the blog from day 1 to where it is now step by step
    • Why I started the blog
    • How I setup the blog
    • How I produced content
    • How I promoted content
    • How you can do the same

    WARNING: This will take you 2-3 hours to read.

    To the mods: Previously when sharing my tutorials I have done everything I can to keep everyone on BHW. I spoke in detail with Wiz about this in PM. However it is just not practical to do that with this post, its 97 pages long with more images than you can shake a stick at. BHW is heavily featured throughout the post though so I'll be sending traffic back from other sources =D Hope thats cool.

    Awesome post bro.

    Have a few questions if you don't mind... This is, essentially, Meatheads method of using Google Alerts/forum posting for traffic? Besides asking for shares from your current visitors, is forum posting all you do?

    Edit: Also, if you come up with a new post on your site, do you change the signatures on your forum posting?

    Congrats mate! I have been following your blog for a long time now and I always knew it was going to do well. It only goes to show that hard work does pay off. It is all about taking action, even if you dont have your own idea, you can always copy one from people you see here sharing theirs...

    NO excuses!
