    This is going to be my first journal.
    I have a HUGE procrastination problem.
    As you can see I was a part of this forum for a VERY LONG TIME, and didn't make any money online.
    This journal should pressure me to do this.

    Quick rundown

    Monthly Searches: 27,100
    Exact Monthly Searches: 4,400
    Competition: High
    Google Pages: 442,000,000
    Exact Google Pages Titles: 877,000

    Current Position: #39

    Domain: EMD.ORG

    $ Per Click? Not gonna lie, I clicked it a few times, and saw some other clicks from direct clicking (asked some friends), and it goes for around $0.25 - $0.50 a click, made like $3, so won't try any more "click-jacking" to get banned.

    What is my SEO plan? :( Don't have one...

    I'll probably write a new article every 3 days (800 words, good keyword density)
    And will try to post my links on blogs that relate to my site.

    I don't mind buying some software (but NOT services).
    Just not sure what.

    Not sure what else to do...

    Updates will happen on THIS post only, unless its something ground breaking where I will make a new post.

    This will be my FIRST site where I will be ranking it...

    Let's DO THIS! :)

    Good luck dude.....Bit of an seo plan would be a start though !

    Never tried ranking a .org but not sure why you are picking a high comp word with only 4000 monthlys...is there some method to this ?

    Home Page:
    The competition you menthioned is only Adwords competition. Correct me me if I'm wrong.
    You can pm me with keyword and I can check it in Market Samurai and tell you whether it is low/mid/high competition.

    Tell us more about :

    1. how many pages you site have
    2. how old domain is
    3. is there unique content?
    4. is theme optimalized for adsense/

    I would suggest spend a few h and make a decent plan how you are goind to get #1. You will be bored after 1-2 months if you will write only 1 article daily. You need more links day by day. I would suggest starting with writing 5 articles. Spun them and create 100 2.0 with images + videos.

    Choose more than 1 keyword. I would suggest 3-5 keywords and target also your inner pages. You can think only about 1 keyword. Not after all the updates.

    pm if you want some help or have A FEW questions - hope I can help.

    Good luck and work hard!

    Dufffers5000,

    I wish I knew :/

    A $0.35 keywords is fairly good, my ideal would be to rank it to #1, keep it at #1 and start ranking some other keywords that will start to pop up...

    Get to number 1 and you'll get around 70-100 UV a day with 4400 exact searches. I have a site ranking with similiar stats.

    Of course, make sure your title and meta description is SE friendly, and screams "Click me!"

    Good luck.

    JimmyWong,

    What is your CTR? With 100 people on my site, CTR about 5%? Thats about $2/day

    ... Anyway you see it scaling up? Or $2/day is where it all ends?

    cheers!

    Hey man,

    Mine's an ecommerce site so it's difficult to compare, but the conversion rate is between 4 - 10%

    Can't scale up as its an EMD on a specific product, but I did notice other search terms leading to the site that I hadn't thought of, and acted accordingly of course.

    Hey! Thanks!

    xenoxen, imo, gave good advice.
    But I have no clue how to create 100 articles, or 100 web 2.0s lol.
    Im not doing it manually.

    This is why my seo plan is so weak.

    You can rank #1 with an EMD with no tools and services, quite easily. It's all about the site.
