This is for people getting started to not make the same mistakes as me. I've done a lot of reading on BHW and thought I'm ready. I picked my niche, went to google adwords, checked my keyword, it had 2k searches a month, low competition and 1 mil results in google search. I thought it would be great to start with something small and rank it to #1. Wrote some articles around my niche, keyword and a clickbank ad. Bought my hosting and domain. Installed the WP plugins to help me with SEO, security, cache, sharing. Modified my articles to be more SEO friendly, I made logos for each article. Made a twitter account and shared my updates there. Last week I checked my ranking, I was #14 in Google. I checked it yesterday again, I'm not even in the first 20. Conclusion: If you want to get into SEO, you have to know a lot more than what I just said to be successful at it.
