    You probably explained this before, but I didn't manage to find it.

    How do you plan to rank this website? Great content and on-page SEO?

    Also, how hard are these keywords? Monthly searches?

    I have no idea if it will rank to be honest. I have had a few pages were I never got around to building links to them on my current domains and they managed to get to the first page before the domains seem to have been slapped. There are a few zero back link case studies over on /r/juststart.

    Regarding the keywords I honestly think the importance of old school exact match keyword targeting is on its way out. Check the top 10 for the keywords you are targeting and see how many of them have the exact match keyword in their title/meta, I would be surprised if there was over three matches in a niche with legit websites. Stuff like clash of clans game hacks will keep it as theres no real legit domains in that niche but I focus on legit niches these days.

    I initially did do some keyword research for the domain but I ended up using those keywords as post ideas rather than something to target. For example a keyword such as "best blue widgets" would become a guide on stuff about blue widgets with a small 150-300 word section focused on the term "best blue widgets" with that keyword term only used once in either H3 or even just paragraph. For some posts I have tracked this in my SERP tracker and some of the tracked pages are on page two for the keyword already with one being on page one.

    The strategy here is based on casting a wide net and seeing what happens rather than trying to laser target specific pages. My goal with the domain is to be able to earn even $10-$20 RMP from the domain while being able to sleep easy without waking up to see that its fallen off the first page for all of its keywords and traffic being down 30-90%.

    • Listened to audible.
    • Requested some payouts from the merchants of products I link to from my personal blog to put the cash into crypto currency. Some has hit my bank/paypal account already so I direct transferred it over to coinbase ASAP as the market seems to be increasing due to the US senate debate.
    • Typed up more content for my zero back linking domain.
    • Spent some time going over if I want to put the last of my ETH into OmiseGo or Electrify Asia during their ICO. Although I still think that I will put it on to ELEC with the hope of quick growth to then put that into more OMG I think OMG can have a good year from Q2.
    • Went to the gym.

    With the no backlinks site are you targeting a broad niche like "sports", a niche like "tennis" or a specific niche like "tennis shoes"?

    A broad niche like Tennis, there should be room for hundreds if not thousands of posts on it.

    It's surprising how many nights it takes to become an overnight success. Keep it up man.

    • Listened to Audible
    • Typed up more content for my zero back linking domain.
    • Tweaked my SER settings one last time to squeeze as much out of it as possible, I will probably cancel its re-bills over the coming days though.
    • Went to the gym
    • The rest of the payments from my personal domains have cleared so I have put them into Ethereum ready to convert it to ELEC later in the month.
    • So I was in two minds about sharing this channel as they contradict themselves a few times and also have a product to sell. That said they build there websites pretty much the same way I do for my zero back linking domains. They also release some of their domains, I spent a few hours trying to reverse engineer some of there stuff for my on zero back link domain. Their channel is income school - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCy

    Cheers :)

    • My main site is all over the place right now. Traffic is down by around 50% right now.
    • The SER money page has dropped about 110 positions in the SERP.
    • Listened to kindle. Really enjoying Bounce, I would highly recommend it. - https://www.amazon.com/Bounce-Matthew-Syed/dp/B007784OWI
    • Changed some of the ads on my personal blog to try push more traffic to my YouTube channel.
    • Canceled my SER Rebills. I had initially wanted to run it for three month but the initial four weeks of the test should be enough to give an indication if the test had potential over the next few month.
    • Reorganised some of my Trello stuff.
    • Typed up a short zero backlink domain article.
    • I can’t take credit for this as I read an article based on it, the thing is I can’t remember where so can’t link to it :(. It was based on how the Google updates from December 17 and January 18 are on page updates based around your actual content and what you are writing about. For example if we use the default example niche of widgets. You write an article on “ The Best Blue Widgets For Summer” that is 2000 words long. Rather than all 2000 words being about the exact topic its H2/H3s filter off into the best blue widgets for winter or the best blue widgets for widget collectors diluting the core topic of the content. I have started to go over my articles that have been hit and i’m getting mixed results in all honesty. One thing I have noticed is a small 500 word filler article that I just told my writer to make a niche relevant article on is now getting 60 hits a week since mid January where as before it was getting zero. It based on 500 words of content with everything focused on “The Best Widgets For Cooking” for example. I will keep digging over the coming days though.
