    First off, the original thread I'm basing this off of is xenix9's:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-rank-non-emd-3-4-weeks-proven-3-times-8.html

    I"m following that thread closely, and here's where I am so far.

    I'm trying to rank an Exact Match Domain for a service and city/state for Lead Generation, meaning something like dentistgalvestontexas dot com (but that's not it). It is a dot com.

    1. I have my money site created, main page with ~25 articles/posts
    2. I have ~45 Web 2.0 sites from phpbuilt's list pointing to the money site. My 45 links on these sites are contextual links, 30 to the home page, 15 to the 25 pages of content. I did the 15 links myself and bought two different "manual web 2.0 site creations" fiverr gigs.
    3. I have a small AMR blast (118 links found) pointing to the 45 sites. I just purchased AMR.
    4. I did a Scrapebox blast of 20k to those AMR links. (fiverr)
    5. I did a fiverr UAW blast to my web 2.0 properties.
    6. I will do an xrumer blast to those 20k links, probably 10k; still debating about whether to do an xrumer to the AMR links (fiverr)
    7. I am currently doing an 10k xrumer blast to 195 total AMR links. (fiverr)
    8. I will do probably 500-800 bookmarks to about half of the 45 web 2.0 sites, or perhaps 100 bookmarks to half of my pages. (fiverr)
    That's about all for now. When I started and after my site got indexed, it was ranking 250ish for the primary keyword. I checked earlier this morning and it's under 30.


    Questions?

    One of the mistakes I've made thus far is with the UAW blasts to the Web 2.0 properties. I ordered this thru fiverr and it came with a scrapebox blast. What I didn't realize as the SB blast didn't go to the UAW article links but to the target site! Oops. So I now have 10K links to my site when I really only wanted the 45 web 2.0 properties.

    Big lesson learned: be very careful what you buy on fiverr. Don't assume. I assumed that the links would be going to the UAW blast but it didn't.

    For the primary keyword I am #12 now. The site's been up for about two weeks now. I'm waiting for the first phone call or email from the site.

    Meanwhile I have an Xrumer blast about ready to finish. I've started to use Linklicious to crawl the previous Scrapebox links.

    It's working out nicely.

    I've also scoped out a quality header for the site. I wish I would have done it earlier. I'm ordering it today or tomorrow.

    After this site starts generating some income I plan to put up between 7-10 more in different cities.

    How old is your site before you start with your blasts?

    So only links directly to your moneysite are from your 45 web 2.0 properties and bit of social bookmarking? No direct AMR to your moneysite?

    Do you plan on buying any blog posts or blogrolls?

    It's one of the things I'm regretting. I paid for the UAW blast and it came with a SB blast. Lucky me! What I didn't know was the SB blast was DIRECTLY to the money site. Bad move I believe and cannot be undone easily.

    The money site is less than a month old. 3 weeks perhaps.

    Looks like the Google dance is happening. The main keyword went from #12 yesterday to #28 earlier today.

    The fiverr Xrumer gig to the articles finished up. It ended up being 11K profiles. I ordered 20K Scrapebox comments to hit those 11K profiles. I will also be ordering a few bookmaking gigs that will target the money site and a few pages. I tightened up my text on my home page so that it's pretty obvious the "call to action" on the page, i.e., Call this number.

    The weak spot that I see thus far was the links in the article directories. I do have a few of them (~400 or so) but not many. I do have a lot of variety elsewhere though.

    That's about it for now.

    Sorry everyone, I was down for the count sick for a couple of days.

    While I was away, my Xrumer blast finished up and I've started to send the links through linklicious to be indexed.

    I checked on my main keyword and it's hovering around 30 right now. Puzzled by it but not too much.

    I will be bookmarking a few of my sites over the next few days.

    I started an EMD and havent really put too much attention to it. I follow Xenix's thread for about two weeks and I havent sent links to it in about two weeks and I'm on page 3. So his thread is legitimate.

    Is there a reason you're waiting for the site to get ranked on first page before you know if people are even interested in the service you're providing? Why not test it out first with some adwords? Or have you already done this? Thx.

    Adwords, yeah, I got banned from them a year ago for who really knows what in the end. They said I violated their terms of service but wouldn't give me more details than that. I tried it again a year later, different account, same ban hammer.

    My site took an interesting twist today. Last I checked it was about #15. Now when I checked, it's nowhere to be found! Don't really know what to make of that. One page is ranking higher than the home page at about #250 or so.

    All the linking has been done and the links are being indexed.

    Update: I just checked and after being off the rankings completely for two days, I am back in a #20 for the primary keyword. I've done all the linking I was planning on doing at this point so I guess it's just a waiting game.
