    Ive been at IM for 1-2 months. I have learned keyword research using Long tail pro and google planner. I have learned how to design websites and very basic html and css. As well as basic on page seo. Im at the point where my site and content (imo) looks better than majority of the sites that are ranking for my keywords. However on average I am on page 4 for my keywords and making $0 dollars.

    My site has only been "live" for under 2 weeks so I know its pre-mature. But I want to learn so I can move onto better things.

    This is probably the point where a lot of people get stuck or fail. Either due to improper off page SEO or realizing they did bad keyword research. I have yet to determine which is the case for me and would like to focus my attention at this point on off-page seo.

    However, after looking around a bit this seems to be such a broad topic with so much mixed information its hard to understand what to do next. Is there some kind of guide or basic go too plan for the basic amazon niche site for backlinking? Slap a couple of bumper stickers or hire a slave at fiverr to hand out a few t-shirts type of thing?

    Do the most successful websites hire drones to hammer out backlinks all day? Use black hat type programs when big G isnt looking? Is the object to beat all the competition in number of "juice" backlinks or simply to get big brother G noticing you and hoping your content does the rest?

    Thanks

    Just create and learn about linkbuilding, it is all you need atm.

    After that just improve your technique and learn how to do it better.

    In 2 months you will have learnt a lot, and will get results.

    You have to think outside the box and have determination.

    I think you're trying a little too hard to make money online. Making money online is just like making money anywhere else it's all about selling a product or service and that's something we all do in some form or another. Even when you go to a job interview you're still trying to sell something(yourself to the employer) What I guess I'm trying to say is do whatever feels natural to you and throw stuff on the wall throw high throw low throw straight throw crooked sooner or later you'll hit your target but when you do remember which way you threw last.

    Remember it's not the amount of backlinks that you make but the quality. Highly relevant links seem to work a lot better. Take it easy when your site is new or G won't be very happy. Make everything look natural if you're looking for longevity. Have you looked into social media yet?

    You said it yourself. Site is only 2 weeks old and that is nothing in SEO years. You need to at least wait 2-3 months
    before you can really have a report on what you did and what you need to do.

    Your Journey has JUST begun. (anything under 3 months in business, let alone IM isn't even a blink in the grand scheme of things...)

    What EXACTLY is your goal?
    What are your interests & passions? (can they be integrated into your IM endeavors?)
    Have you studied various forms of monetization? (although clearly traffic and compelling content should be your main focus right now...)

    Stay with it. Continue to LEARN.
    I'm not sure what your exact niche/angle is, however I do know you must keep growing , testing and applying.

    Also expand beyond BH forums if you haven't already.

    The good news is this time next year (or sooner...) you will be on another level if you keep at it

    Your website could be overoptimized.

    Have you read phpbuilt's thread?

    A couple of weeks isn't really long enough to get any feedback from 'the machine'...

    Well my website is a niche amazon review site, difference is most other sites dont also have articles on the matter and there reviews are shorter. I have 3 sites I made and I noticed a pattern in all of them. ONLY the landing pages are indexed on the first 10 pages of google. I can understand maybe because my amazon niche topic homepage keyword is broad and im not even too sure what I was targeting as the goal was only to rank landing pages.

    However, my second site was simply chosen because the home page keyword is 4000 monthly searches and easy. There are blogspot and tumblrs in the top 10 for this keyword. Yet for some reason only the landing page is on page 3 of google and the hompage is no where to be seen.

    The only thing Ive done for the homepage on both sites is sumbitted them to a top 100 ping submitter which I dont even think created any backlinks. So I dont understand why the homepages are no where to be seen even on an easy keyword?

    learn about linkbuilding and leave the site for 1 month atleast to show you something
