    Hey BHW,

    I want to start a journal here so that I can track what I do every day and look back and see if I'm actually being productive on a daily basis, and to keep motivated toward my $100 a day goal by 10/1/11.

    My main goal right now to achieve the consistent $100 a day is to get my forex related clickbank affiliate site ranking number 1 for 3 different main keywords. Each day before I go to bed I will post a quick message of what productive things I got done for the day, and by productive, I mean things that will help toward the ranking of my site.

    I know that through enough hard work I could achieve #1 rankings within those 5 weeks. My site has been as high as positions 4, 2, and 3 before for the respective keywords, but this was many months ago and the rankings didn't hold for very long. Currently I'm ranked...

    Keyword 1: 11
    Keyword 1: with "s" on the end: 16
    Keyword 2: 4
    Keyword 2: with "s" on the end: 8
    Keyword 3: 9

    And the global monthly searches for each keyword...

    Keyword 1: 90,500
    Keyword 1: with "s" on the end: 40,500
    Keyword 2: 12,100
    Keyword 2: with "s" on the end: 3,600
    Keyword 3: 6,600

    In the past month I've only had $81.45 in Clickbank profit, and 404 search engine visits according to Google Analytics. So as you can see there's currently not a lot going on with this site.

    I started my new linking campaign a few days ago and what I've currently got is about 25 web 2.0 properties each with a unique article and a single link pointing to my home page. I've blasted these 25 sites with a few hundred scrapebox autoapprove links but that's it so far. The past few days were spent "setting up" this link-building campaign, and now it's time to put in some real solid SEO work, so let's see if I'll actually put in the work or whether this'll be yet another "abandoned after a week" thread.

    Thanks for reading!

    -Scott

    Good luck Scott!

    Look forward to seeing a journal where someones already ranking for the related keywords and all they need to do is "bring them in".

    Cuts our waiting time down drastically and helps people understand what works and what doesn't for sites sitting on Page 1/2

    Thanks SuperLinks! Already having a semi-established site should help greatly in this whole process.


    Work Log

    Today I've written 6 articles. 3 of them have been submitted to high pr sites to add to the list of 25 high pr tier 1 sites I'm using to give my site authority.

    I took 1 of the other articles and spun it using Spinner Chief and submitted it to Article Bot linking to 1 of the tier 1 articles.

    I tried to start a campaign on Senuke X but I'm using a crackd version since I'm way too poor to buy any software at the moment and I couldn't get it to work properly. What I think I'm going to do this weekend is go through the list of web 2.0 profiles listed in Senuke and manually go through and create accounts and place a link on each profile. Then I'll add these to my list of tier 1 sites that I'll be using to build authority.

    Scrapebox has been running all night and day through a bunch of autoapprove urls, it's been linking to the tier 1 articles.

    I've ran Xrumer 4 different times linking to 1 tier 1 article each time. 2,500 links from each run. I plan to do this for all tier 1 properties.

    On a more personal note, I'm glad I'm keeping this journal because I can look back and track exactly what work I've done in a single day, and I don't feel like I've utilized the amount of free time I had today. So it's a good reality check to let me know that I need to be more productive tomorrow, especially since I've got to do 8 hours at the day job tomorrow and I'll be having a few beers with my buddies tonight.

    I've had a plan, but tonight I'm going to spend some time coming up with a more solid plan and execute it throughout the next week to try and keep more productive and on track. I spend too much time changing my plans of what to do to build links.

    No sales or ranking changes, I'll start adding a "success log" section to my posts once I start seeing one or the other.

    Thanks mariosocieto!


    Work Log

    After the post last night I ended up going out and having some drinks at my buddies house like I said I would be. I got home late and slept until I had to go into work. I went into the day job and put in 10 hours, then went and helped my Aunt out for about 2 hours on a side job to make a little extra money. I just now got settled into bed about 15 min. ago at 12 am. so no work done today.

    I have to put in 7 hours tomorrow, 5 hours Monday, and 0 hours Tuesday at the day job, so right now I'm coming up with a detailed plan of action for those 3 days.

    I'm hopefully going to be getting a second job so that i can do 50-60 hours a week. The extra money will be going toward SEO services, as I had my best SEO success when I was investing money into different small link-building services and then using my Xrumer to blast at the urls.

    We'll see what happens, but for now I'm going to come up with a plan of action and then go to bed since I've got to get up in a few hours.
