    Hey guys,

    Well, Here is my journal which I will update on a regular basis for a niche health website...

    Main motivation for starting a journal is it will motivate me to work on it, to gain insights from fellow members and hopefully some knowledge others can take away from this thread.

    I am not new to SEO and have okay knowledge to know what to target and how to target.

    The niche I have chosen is my profession so I don't have issues with insight on it.

    So here is the history of the site --
    -The site was regd and started a year ago but was lying dormant and was getting 50 visits per day for non targeted words...
    -the site was down for 3 weeks coz my hosting expired and now i have revamped it and decided to make it a money site.

    Keywords:
    I thought it will be ideal to start off with some easy keywords and some moderate keywords first.
    .
    Main site keywords
    Exact global monthly searches ........... Avg. CPC ($)
    keyword 1 ...........6,600 ....................4.57
    keyword 2 ...........590 .......................5.58

    Inner site keywords
    keyword 1 ...........22000 ....................4.16
    keyword 2.......... .6600 .....................4.42
    keyword 3 ..........2400 ......................6.23
    keyword 4 ..........390......................... 4.39

    Here is my strategy for link building

    -AMR blasts
    -Guest posts
    -Scrapebox blasts to guest posts (using auto approve lists available on bhw)
    -Scrapebox blasts to top 30 article directories (using auto approve lists available on bhw)
    -Manual do-follow blog commenting to money site
    -Need more suggestions(I don't have cash to invest right now-so pls suggest non-paid options)

    P.S Any body got some real quality health websites and would accept a guest post from me. Let me know.. I can write real good. Pm me for an example...




    What I have done till now

    wrote the 4 articles for my targeted keywords
    1 AMR blast-(1st got the article published on eza and then did the blast)
    3 guest articles on well established health sites
    SB blast to 1 guest article using an autoapprove list using fast commentator.. not many successful results..


    My current rankings after 2-3 weeks of work
    Main site keywords
    keyword 1 -- 8
    keyword 2 --18

    Inner site keywords
    keyword 1 -
    keyword 2 -
    keyword 3 -
    keyword 4 ---13


    I am not getting any traffic really now.,..Around 10 unique hits per day..
    Well, I know some of these keywords I picked probably would not be worth ranking for coz of misleading adwords traffic data.. But, i'll have to rank to find out if they worthy or worthless..

    Your comments, suggestions and critical analysis welcomed :)

    P.S: Anybody got some real good health websites and will accept a guest post, let me know. I write real good. PM me for an example.

    I havent really done anything on the site for a week. This is to make sure I dont go overboard with the link velocity and I wanted to see the results for the work I have done till now
    Main site keywords
    keyword 1 -- 7
    keyword 2 --19

    Inner site keywords
    keyword 1 -18
    keyword 2 -
    keyword 3 -
    keyword 4 --9

    So. Not a significant improvement except I got one of my keywords on the second page of google which was not existing before..

    So, now my plan is to add some more general articles to the blog, quality blog commenting to the site, AMR blasts to the guest posts..

    Here is my rankings for this week
    Main site keywords

    keyword 1 -- 8
    keyword 2 --19

    Inner site keywords
    keyword 1 -20
    keyword 2 -19
    keyword 3 ---
    keyword 4 --9

    I have submitted a few articles to article directories and did a bit of blog commenting.

    I have decided to concentrate on inner site keywords 1 & 2 which are with exact matches 22k and 6k. I believe it would be better to rank for these and bring in large traffic rather than waste time for non-competitive keywords...

    So, I am going to concentrate on these two keywords for now.. Its encouraging that both of these are on 2nd page of google...

    The traffic has increased slightly to around 30 on weekdays..

    Hey guyz, Sorry for being lazy and not updating you. I haven't really done much on the site except added a few articles,some blog commenting, a couple of ezine submissions. So, no real progress.

    I have built up a few articles(6) which I will be using for various purposes. My biggest nemesis seems to be content creation. I would love to download dragon naturally speaking and use its power but I have P4,XP and 1Gb RAM. So, I don't think my PC can handle it.....

    The traffic has improved as you can see in the image. Current plans include:
    -Building up Web 2.0 sites
    -Blasting the hell out of them with SB and xrumer
    -Some more guest posts(Working on it)
    -Blasting the guest posts with xrumer...

    Almost, all the rankings have taken a beating although there are links being built to the pages. Not gonna draw any conclusion by these... Im gonna continue link building

    Also, I installed Dragon naturally speaking(Speech to text) and trying to get the hang of it. Hopefully, it will help me write articles faster.

    Hey man!

    I love the fact that you keep your head up and trying to rank better everyday.
    I am willing to help you out with one SenukeX blast.

    Hit me up with your URL and 3 keywords.


    Good luck from now!

    Really appreciate the kind gesture.. PM sent...

    So guys, Let's see how my link wheel plan turns out..

    As of now, I have AMR, Scrapebox.. Only thing missing is Xrumer.So, I will have to outsource the xrumer blasts I guess...

    Immediate plan of action is to setup each property and add an article or two to it..I will be doing one property each day
