    This is less of a journey and more of a test for my own purpose. Not expecting to learn much from it. Also it won't be an aggressive churn and burn effort.

    So far this is what i have done:

    Got a keyword from this thread: Buy HIGH volume CPA keywords with LOW competition in the gaming niche. Niche removed I have no knowledge in this niche.

    Keyword difficulty on KWFinder
    [​IMG]

    If i remember correctly the difficulty score on keyword revealer was 3

    Paid for exact match domain - 3 word domain.

    Set up the site on http://www.nosupportlinuxhosting.com/ $1 a month hosting.

    Theme used: https://wordpress.org/themes/sparkling/ This theme is free and super simple to set up, it also has a call to action button feature which sits at the top of the page under the menu.

    Added Contact, FAQ, and About pages because google likes this.

    Created a page with a thousand word article and set it as the homepage. I use the term 'created' loosely, its actually just a spun piece of crap - using free spinning websites. I would have written a quality article but i have no knowledge or interest in this niche. Hence the reason im doing this test. Spinner used http://bestfreespinner.com/index.php

    Reason for using spun content: Most people won't bother to go past the call to action button to read a long article.

    I have no other pages - only the ones noted above.

    Signed up with https://ogads.com/ and created a content locker. Im linking direct to the content locker offers from the call to action button, after the offer is completed the user will be redirected to another site where the rom download exists.

    Whats next?

    I'll start of by getting some social signals from this thread: Real Social Signals

    Then i'll use GSA and use some of the settings that give you a higher quality link at a slower drip rate.

    • Tinyurl
    • Ow.ly
    • Bit.ly
    • Recommend others if you know any
    I'll create 10 shortened links then i'll create shorteners for those shorteners until i have 30 or so. These will be used for GSA.

    I was going to get myself a bunch of web2.0's but i cant be bothered, although i may do that still at a later date..

    Current keyword ranking: 38th The domain is a few weeks old with zero link building done so far

    I have a really easy keyword like those as well, how did you get a relevant article even if spun?

    I basically went and found a review of the game on gamespot.com and spun it - then added my keyword a bunch of times in random places.

    Of course it would be much better to use a quality article.

    10/10 commitment


    Just kidding. I'd probably do the same but I have a site in the gaming niche so I'll be taking advantage of the link juice it already has for a 22k MS KW, it's not what I wished to do with this site (Having a content locker on the fucking main page) but it will have to do, after all what matters is what provides the most money at the end of the month.

    I wonder if content lockers do affect rankings or if it's simply better to direct them to a link locker.

    I agree with this. Most of the games aren't available in the store anymore. So they are looking for a (free) download. So they still can play retro game. You can force them to do a survey, before they unlock the files. I do the same in another niche (not game related) and got a 7% CVR.

    I'd never recommend nosupportlinuxhosting for a quality site with lots of traffic, but for something like this they are perfect. Not seen any down time so far, been using them for a couple months for a few sites

    Damn son.

    GJ BTB =)



    Just noticed that most people do exactly the same for my niches, what spinner did you use to make sure it's 100% unique? I'm gonna try something similar as you.

    Not sure about my backlinking strategy but I'll probably social signals as well, however since I'm gonna be having them on an already long term established site I want to make sure that I don't do any aggressive backlinking. I wonder how long it'll take me to hit top 3

    I just used http://bestfreespinner.com/index.php

    Apart from being lazy the main reason i used spun content is that most people wont be bothered to scroll past the call to action button to read a long article, they want what they came for and the button is how they are getting it if that makes sense

    I know that's exactly why I'll be using it as well, only thing that bothered me was having problems with google due to duplicate content thats why I was looking for a decent spinner haha.

    Will probably go with a web2.0 strategy or something similar instead of your 301 since the 301 strategy is a bit spammy for the long term

    Ok slight change in plan.

    Social signals purchased from Here - lowest package
    BTB has kindly chipped in by dripping in some quality links
    The GSA plan has changed slightly in the way that no longer am i going to use pure spam links (so i won't be using the guy i linked to in main post. Can't edit it now) but instead use GSA for higher quality links fed at a lower rate. Still using shortened URL's

    If you don't want to use the hosting i mentioned in the main post then try https://www.hastehosting.com/

    Its relatively new but its cheap and has great support, the owner is a member here @HudsonWebServices
