Being a newbie to this game still I wanna see if I am on track. I managed to get to 1st page in a few weeks with low traffic/comp keywords- 170 exact but it's taking me a while with 1k+ ones. 3 I am working on are around 1k and another is 8k. So of course this is going to depend on how many exact so could you guys give me averages of how long it take you to hit page one starting from scratch and give exact search details. Also if you are kind enough to give a brief outline of the main things which get you to number one that would be great. What I'm finding is the web2.0 and amr blasts are ok as a first rocket jump but after they aren't that useful after that since they are just 'one shot deals' in that you do not get extra points for doing those again. So recently I have just been blasting like crazy these original links with SB but still that isn't making huge changes. SB blasting does definitely seem to show steady movement which I was skeptical of at first but not enough to get near front page and I run out of lists before I get close. So I wonder how else do you do it? I am looking into xrumer services next. The good thing about both of these which I like is that you can do these indefinitely to an extent, so long as you can find lists which you haven't used yet. I had run out of AA lists for SB which I'd bought which is why I have this week been working on finding my own. So I'm interested in timelines mainly to see if I am on track. Obv. I'm gonna be slower since I am still getting over learning curves for each program and don't have money invested in the business like others would but it would be good to hear other's stories to know what to shoot for. Also info on your process would be a bonus.
