    Hey guys,

    I have been reading up on IM since 2012, tried my hand at SEO in the past but gave up as I had better results with YouTube projects I had running at the same time. That method is now dead so I am going to try a new SEO based project.

    I have an old project running with around 20 pages ranking in the top 100 for their keywords so I plan to use this site to test any new methods and use any income from it to roll into the new project.

    What I Have Available from past projects

    GSA SER
    GSA CB
    GSA Indexer
    Scrapebox
    Market Samurai
    Mass Video Blaster Pro
    Follow Liker Twitter (New purchase working on a different project but I have it available if required.)
    5 x High quality relevant span articles
    Hostgator hosting (on going from other projects)

    What I have Purchased for this project so far

    $5 SERPBook
    $47 Looplines GSA SER self updating target list
    $37 Kontent Machine (One month subscription, stacking content spins in dropbox for once it runs out)
    $11 eMail accounts for GSA SER
    $26 Custom spun article for main keyword in project
    $10 Domain
    $29 VPS
    $25 30 semi private proxies
    $16 Indexing service

    $206.50 current spend from budget.

    Plan

    Set up a money site and use a tiered back linking strategy to try to rank it. Initially I plan to try to rank low competition keywords to try and gain experience before moving onto anything major. My tiered link building plan is as follows but maybe tweaked over time...

    Money Site <- High PR Blog Comments
    /\
    High quality Web 2.0s <- High PR Blog Comments + Strict filtered non contextual GSA links
    /\
    Contextual GSA SER <- Filtered non contextual GSA links
    /\
    Contextual GSA SER <- Non contextual GSA links

    Everything linking to the high quality web 2.0s and below will initially receive 10 contextual and 10 non contextual submissions per day per URL, the contextual and strict non contextual direct to the Web 2.0s will be sent to my indexer for drip feed and the rest left to do their own thing.

    Whats I have done so far

    Chosen a niche, chosen my initial keywords (absence based keyword), purchased a domain and added wordpress, added basic posts such as privacy policy, added two high quality self made articles, added one of the articles to SERPBook for rank tracking, its not showing up yet but I don't think its indexed yet.

    Feel free to tag along and ask questions/offer advice if you like.

    Today I have mainly researched different link building strategies and how to do keyword research.

    I have found three low competition seed keywords for three articles that I have decided to try to rank. Each one will have a slightly different version of the tier link building strategy applied to it to see what one works best. Each keyword is around about the same difficulty so i am hoping this will be a good test to move forward from.

    I plan to order three custom spun articles later, one for each keyword. I am also waiting for replies to Web 2.0 management threads from the BST before I make a decision on who to use but I think I have narrowed it down to two different vendors.

    No update yesterday as I was away traveling with work, I saved a lot of threads to pocket and have spent the time reading up on strategies.

    I think I will set up three experiments to see how they do.

    Currently they are looking like a regular ranking experiment, ranking a site with web 2.0s as buffers and a churn and burn experiment.

    I haven't had much time today but I have spent a fair amount of my free time researching churn and burn techniques and ways to outsource them.

    I have ordered an article for my site to experiment this technique.

    I have also approached a few BST vendors with plans for this churn and burn idea, although I haven't started yet Tommy and Lover have both been very helpful. I had a service bought and paid for with Lover but he messaged me to tell me that his service was not recommended with the site I selected as it is more suited for churn and burn helping me protect one of my ranking sites.

    I have learned some basic coding skills and also messed around with different absence layouts on different templates and I think I am settled on the one I want to use now. I just need to wait for my Article to be created and then I am ready to go!

    White Hat Project

    One of the 20 keywords I am tracking from this project jumped to page one today :) I have ordered a $75 package for it to see how it does and I think I will just leave this project over the next month or so to see if anything happens.

    Web 2.0 Buffer Project

    I think the guy from BST who I have ordered my span articles from has abandoned the thread :( I will give him a day or so to get in touch then I will get PayPal to refund my money and shit list him. I spoke to the BST OP providing my Web 2.0s and he said they should be ready today so I am looking forward to seeing the quality of this project.

    Churn and Burn project

    I have two experiments I am wanting to conduct within my Churn and Burn project. The first will be 100% outsourced and the other will have the majority of the backlinks built by my VPS and GSA SER, I have an experiment running right now to go over night to discover how many contextual links I can spit out of GSA SER in 24 hours with my current set up before I decide if this side of the project will go ahead. I also ordered a second article for a second set of keywords almost exactly evenly matched to the first one so if either experiment works I am able to gauge what one is a better method....I hope its the outsources one as it is an easier option.

    White Hat

    I haven't done anything on this project, I have noticed the keyword that I am experimenting on bouncing between 8 and 9 on Google.com.

    Web 2.0

    I have received my set of Web 2.0s today, I haven't had time to check them all out yet but they all look good to me :D. Still no news from the guy who does my spun articles. I think I will give him until tomorrow then request a refund and shit list him.

    Churn and Burn

    My two articles should arrive by 2nd December. My current GSA SER rig has managed to build 3500 verified contextual links with around 2500 submitted remaining waiting to be verified, not bad so I am wiping the project and starting a harder test for it.

    Not much to report, I haven't had much free time this weekend unfortunately :( I am hoping to receive three articles by Tuesday and get some Churn and Burn projects off the ground though :)

    you could open up a BST with all those tools and make some extra side-cash?

    No a bad idea tbh, I might do that in the future :)

    I randomly received an email from peerfly telling me of the new offers they have for December, I logged in and noticed I have $20 in the account from a small YouTube video I set up about 6 weeks ago and totally forgot about it. Last night I saw that BigBuddies YouTube view service is back so I might try doing something with that again. The exact method I used to use won't work anymore but I will see if I can think of a twist.
