    Hello everyone.

    After alot of response in my thread about the webshop i made from scracht,
    made some decent money with and later sold for 145.000 danish krones (26.000 usd)

    I this thread i will try layout what and how i did it, and some basics i followed.

    First was the product, it took me about 4 days to find the right one.
    When i was looking for a product to sell via a webshop, i had some basic rules.

    1. it had to be small and dont have alot of weight,
    this meant low shipping cost for me and my clients.
    2. it had to be a consumable project. (a product that can be sold over and over to the same client)
    3. It had to be something most people uses. (This will make it easy to target traffic, and most important more people to buy)

    After i found some products that went under these rules and started looking for buying related keywords.
    (Cheap xxxxxx, product names, whatever you think people write in google when they want to buy something)

    Used all of them in adwords to get traffic from day 1.

    I found one that was decent, well... it was pretty low, but the product i found people would only search for if they needed it.
    Then i bought a domain with the keyword in it and got a very poor cms webshop with frames with it.
    This was very hard to make seo friendly, so instead i found a nice template and edited with about 8 pages of content.
    All the pages had a link to the webshop.

    When all this was ready i started to do SEO.

    First thing i did, and today i would say it was wrong but i made 2 linkwheels.
    The content on them was very bad, and it all could have been so much better.

    Also i did 5 random forum backlinks every day for about 9 weeks.
    After that i upped it to 5-10 random links every day.
    At the same time i used some of the money i had earned to buy ppc on danish advertising sites (like a portal for finding the cheapest product)
    and sinse i was the cheapest it helped me alot.

    Soon after i started to get more link juice, so i made 1 edu, 3 high pr sites (starting on a list i made from pr3 and up, so the lowest pr sies would be done first)
    and also 6 random links every day.

    My site started to climb on every keyword i had, and the visitors followed with it.
    Alot of people have pm'ed me and asked how many sales i got per visitor.

    Just before i sold my site i had a rate of 1:18 so alittle higher than when i started.

    Then the best thing happened my competitor sent me a email about him wanting to talk about a price for my site.
    We agreed and that was my happy ending.

    I hope this post helps some people, as it is not a "see me, im making money thread"

    If you have any questions you can ask them here, but please do not pm me asking about the niche.
