    I'll start by saying I didn't get this in an hour. It was something I did and forgot about and checked back 2/3 months later and to my surprise It had money. Since November It's generated $593 just from just the initial hour I spent (Most of the $ was made within 2 months when the site ranked well I think)

    To the majority of you this post will be pointless, but to those starting out you might get lucky like I did.

    I decided to make a Blogger with a share cash link about getting free Instagram followers, I decided to make it as simple as possible to see what would happen on Google.

    As you can see, there's a bit of text, repetitive key words and a video.

    I uploaded the video from my computer to Blogger and then uploaded the same video to YouTube and put the Blogger link in the description and the keyword.

    I thought I'd try an old technique which I didn't think would work, I put a few key words in the footer.

    That's all I did on the site. I then added it to webmaster tools and fetched it as Google, after that I went to pingler and pinged the site.

    Posted the link on G+, Facebook and Twitter and after 2 hours (to my surprise) it was indexed.

    I also made a Tumblr (had no content other than the YT video) and put a link to the site on it.

    Went to Yahoo answers and I answered about 10 questions (I didn't have a level 2 account) and put the link in the answer.

    Here's my referring sites to the blog. Total page views showing on Blogger is 55,000.

    And of course, the earnings.

    I'm not saying this will work for you (depending on what you target) but it's possibly the easiest money I've made online and it's worth a go as it's very minimal effort to do.

    If you manage to get that much traffic, you might want to consider swapping the share cash link to an affiliate link of what ever it is you're advertising. (If only I had realized when it was at it's peak!!)

    That's awesome! Bloggers perform very well in the search engines, although I'm extremely surprised that an old technique like that would work. Regardless, you have done an outstanding job for only putting in that much time and effort! :D

    I couldnt find this blog anywhere, not for "free instagram followers" and different variations of it. Nor could i find it by using keyword + blogger.com
    Strange.

    When you say you answered 10 questions on YA did you just post to random questions, or did you create a question yourself based around your keyword, and then answer yourself?

    I just searched Instagram and answered random questions.



    No, read what Mikie46 said, "keyword + blogger.com."



    I was offering a free tutorial on how to get Instagram followers, I basically put a link to the free instaflow bot when it was around.

    I can see it on the first page using keyword blogger.com and the site is PR2 with no content. I have website in that niche and am going to see how i can apply this to my keywords ranking first page.
