    Like most of us i also suffered some hard beatings from G the last couple of months since my focus always was and will be organic visitors trough G. Basically i lost 3/4 of my online income.

    And since 70% of my income is IM it is a good chunk. Still making $2000 a month but still...

    I decided to stick with the organic searches and not getting into things like social marketing etc.

    Always liked the fact that the traffic i was getting trough the search engines was 100% laser targeted. Meaning, people were searching for the word 'buy' and then my keyword/phrase.

    So no heaps of visitors but 'ready to buy' visitors.

    Another reason is because there are a lot of pages and sites down going the drain lately there will be more room on the first 2 pages of G and more conversions for me in the end.

    Here goes...

    Minimum targets:

    100+ Visitors a day / $50 A day trough affiliate sales like plimus/avangate. Within a month.

    Strategy:

    Got myself a neat 10yr old domain, slightly related to my niche for this project namely software sales.

    Fixed wordpress and a nice fast loading/simple theme wich i changed some gfx on it etc.

    Made a bot that takes spinned text from a .txt file, related to the posts obviously, and then spins it to a nice and readable text. Say written by a foreigner (like me haha).

    Then the bot changes some synonyms to make it extra unique.

    It will log into my wpadmin and creates 100+ drafts with a phrase that i scraped from ubersuggest.org in the title. On a daily base a plugin will automatically post 5 posts.
    This way i will cover a whole range of phrases that will have the word buy in them and a targeted phrase.

    Sure this method isnt new. I just like the fact i can create 100 posts within a hour this way :D

    So on a daily base i am filling the shit up with a few hundred posts. Say aprox 4/5 products that i am targeting.

    I am not planning to do any backlinking on this because 80% of the targeted phrases have 25k and less competition.

    Say if within a month 100 posts are indexed and each page gets 1 visitor a day, it means i would make at least a sale a day since the visitors came there because they used the word buy...

    Needless to say this baby is onsite optimized.

    Will keep a regular update here so it also pushes me to work harder ;)

    Today i dropped a link at dp for indexing since it is still indexed with the old host info. Lets see how fast we can get things rolling...

    Yeah they come out better then what i see most of the times.

    This is still a project ofcourse. But when the results are good enough its obviously a matter of making a arsenal of these sites obviously all in their own niche.

    looks like you have a solid plan and strategy

    i recommend breaking down each goal even further if you can mate

    that helps you achieve daily goals that get you to your overvall goal. makes things a lot easier to track and see results.

    Awww, I thought you were going to do something nice like 301 your penguinized domain to a competitors site. :) That thought has actually been weighing on me quite heavily. If you can't "beat" penguin with some sites, simply spread some penguin love to your competitors. lol

    Good luck with your efforts. My thoughts are that you will be successful as long as you stay away from insane backlinking.

    Careful with that 301'ing... leaves a HUGE bread crumb trail right back to you. Also a law suit playground. What the OP did is a much safer route lol.

    @ Thelinkguy:

    Yeah theres a plan alright, it all kinda depends how the posts will behave as long as i don't touch them with any backlinks etc, only with the internal links.

    Did break it down ofcourse. This week i want the whole thing indexed and also a couple of posts. If all goes well trough the internal structure of the links the others will slowly be indexed too.

    @ Assphuck:
    All my sites are pretty much 1/4 pages, no wp etc... Already had that in mind though. Not to redirect to competitors but just change the /%postname%/ structure so all backlinks would become invalid and the posts will gain in the serps automatically in time.

    Yup, no backlinking here, just gambling on the low competitors on the phrases searched for...

    True. Why gamble. I pretty much dont care for my competitors. I rather have my competitors looking at my work...

    Good luck, seems like a solid plan. Will be keeping an eye on this thread.

    Thanks.

    Yeah well we don't know what G has in store for us in the future...

    Sure cant complain but i had plans to go to thailand this winter for a holiday and maybe stay there next year for 6 months.

    This plan is now down the drain because of a bird who cant fly and a animal with the worst camouflage ever...

    Damn.

    Shit that sucks. I hate making future plans with IM earnings, it's so unpredictable.

    Heres a little update on my new project.

    In the meantime the domain has been indexed properly and aprox 7 posts are indexed.
    So basically things are pretty much on track accept for one thing. The posts don't rank.

    It could be because the indexing is just since yesterday and serps must set properly in a week or so or something else is going on.

    As far i can see there could be 4 things.

    1) Domain is blacklisted previously.

    2) Word count of the posts is aprox 250/300 words so i have to turn up the amount of words to at least 500.

    3) Missing of pictures. I didnt place any pics on the posts so i have to insert at least one.

    4) Duplicate content. Sure i know ├žontent is king' etc but due to the amount of posts it would cost a small fortune and my precious time to get that amount of original articles.

    Believe me when i say the posts are HIGHLY spinned and so i dont really go for this point since just 7 posts are indexed and also for 3 different products.

    I am gonna post 3 posts with 500+ words, pics and a video and give it another week.

    Today and tomorrow i am gonna to revamp the bot to post these kind of posts to blogger since i had quite some succes with sales trough blogger previously.

    No sales trough this project atm.

    Keeping you guys posted!

    Good strategy mate!

    1. What software are you using for Spinning? I was using SPinnerChief...its ok but requires manual verification.
    2. Duplicate content: Any idea..how to get non-duplicate content? Does Google penalize duplicate content?
    3. How about keyword stuffing? That should still be ok in post-penguin time.

    Try going Social. G is banking big-time on it.

    Thanks for the reply sand1000.


    1) I am do the spinning trough the bot itself.

    2) Yeah trough the BST lolz. In my opinion Google does penalize duplicate content. Thats why i am mixing stuff up properly. For instance i also change every dot in the text into a syntax like: . ,.<BR>,.<BR><BR>

    I am not using a whole copied article but a shitload of 'generic' sentences, wich will become a 'article' after spinning.

    3) Keyword density is aprox 2/3%, I also use H2 and H3 tags etc...

    Not doing anything social atm. Just want to get G index the posts properly first and then go from there.
