    Okay here we go.

    After having made a profit from selling my danish webshop, i have alot free time and have decided to start a new project.

    See thread
    Code:
    h**p://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/white-hat-seo/119054-webshop-making-100-600-day.h t m l
    First off, i donĀ“t expect anything spectacular from this, it will be my first try to do something like this, and maybe someone have some tips down the road.

    Well like the topic says i will be trying to build a small niche site with adsense and affiliate sales.

    And no, i will not tell you the niche or show you the homepage.

    Well first things first.

    Today i have found my main keyword i will try and go for.
    The keyword consist of 3 words.
    here are some info taken from market samurai.

    Keyword research

    Mact type: exact
    SEOT: 137
    PBR: 82%
    SEOC: 28k
    SEOV: $53

    Mact type: broad
    SEOT:250
    SEOV:$164

    SEO competition.

    Code:
    h**p://img214.imageshack.us/i/78189267.jpg
    And i got the domain with the main keyword in it .net

    Maybe im totaly off already and are doomed to fail, if you think so please tell me.
    But i hope im on the right track sinse i got the domain.

    My plans for the next days will be to:

    Install WP.
    Find a nice theme.
    Find some affiliate product (have some at the moment)
    Get 2 articles to post on the site.
    Get 3 articles to post on ezine.
    Bookmark everything.
    Make a FB fan page. (first time aswell)
    Start building backlinks.

    If anyone of you would like me to keep posting please tell me and i will.
    And if nobody wants to see more i will let it die quick. :)

    Okay, i was hopeing more people would be interested but guess its not after all.
    Well im gonna post a update anyway. :)

    I got most of the things done, installed wordpress and installed socrates theme.
    Posted 3 articles so far on the site.
    Have made some linknets and made one run with sb on them to boost the juice from them.
    Also used a service to get about 2 extra.
    3 days ago i was on page 4, so i more some more linknets and today im on page 2.
    So i am getting there atm, looking forward to see what will happen net.

    In the next days i will be doing 5 manual very high pr backlinks to main site and start to slowly build backlinks to my pages on the main site.

    Well here is an update for the ones that care :p

    After 8 days in the sandbox or google dance, whatever you wanna call it, im now on pos.9 on 1 page for my main keyword.

    So far so good.

    I have done 4 mini nets, 2 made myself other 2 i got from a service.
    Have been boosting these with auto approved blog backlinks.

    Made some direct backlinks to main site and undersites aswell.

    I will keep doing this for about 2-3 weeks more and then start to step it up a notch.


    Here are some more details so u dont need to ask :)

    Made 6 post on the site.
    Made an about page
    Made an privacy policy page
    Used the keyword around 7-10% on the site.
    No anchor text links from the blogs (from from some of the parasite sites in the mininets)

    Also i have made an other site in different niche doing seo much slower that this, and it is still in sandbox.

    I`ll follow your journey as i have myself about 10 made for adsense websites...

    Domain age seems to place an important role when we go for mini niches...
    Got one website with only 1 article, very few backlinks, ranking #2 and on it`s keyword and bringing 150-200$ a month in adsense and the other 9 got quite a lot of optimizations but didnt hit the top 3 spots yet.

    I dont know how important it is tbh.
    I have never had a domain older than a couple of months, so im not in position to to agree or disagree.

    It's nice post on your journal, but why you are not installed clickbumb theme to get more/high CTR result??
    On ClickBumb engine you can create privacy policy page in the last minute, it's very easy to be done, But socrates are good theme.

    Hello.

    Site is at pos.5 now for about 24 hours, will be watching the next few days with big eyes.

    the reason im using socrates is to test it out.

    Hey man, nice looking journal - I've got a project in the works that I'm pretty stoked about too - I was indexed about a week ago at page 9, and within 3 days I jumped to page 6. It's on a KW that gets about 19K exact searches/month and I was able to get the exact KW in the .com so, I am confident with this one. Anyway, I think I might just start a journal because well... I don't know I am not prone to writing things down on paper, but maybe if I am at my computer I will type something in that will help keep me on track. Anyway, best of luck.

    Sounds like a solid project to start up, this journal havent been as good as i hoped, i kinda slacked abit on the updates sinse ppls dont seem to be that interested in this.

    I would highly recommend you to write down stuff on your computer.
    Like what you have done for your site each day or week depending on your time.

    This has helped me to go back and locate some errors and things that seem to be working.

    My 2 cent :)

    Yeah, that is kind of what I am doing - and like I said in my journal thread "if you don't like journals, dont hate, just get out." It's going to be a way to keep my thoughts organized.
