    No history and lame introduction. This is a simple journey to rank a keyword with my SEO tactics post-panda world.

    Resources accumulated :

    1) SEO VPS ordered (with senuke, xrumer, scrapebox, rank tracker etc.)
    2) 2nd tier spun articles created (over 300 done in 3 hours)
    3) Latest do-follow web 2.0 sites list collected - 57 sites

    Niche Research :

    1) 6600 local monthly searches in google
    2) Medium competition - allintitle (77K) but youtube and about ranking on first page
    3) "weight loss" niche

    Plans :

    1) Develop a static html website (10-15 pages interlinked and all)
    2) On-page SEO - the traditional way
    3) Use same old link-pyramid structures but with only one exception that 1st tier web2.0s will be updated with 2-3 articles and uniquely written
    4) Everything will be done by myself for cost reduction and to see how good i am

    **There is a reason why iam doing static HTML site and it will be revealed later**

    Monetization :

    Make my own product when i get some visits. It will be an ebook sold with paypal - no adsense, clickbank stuff (will gain be explained later why).


    Please do not post "subscribed" and all. If you have subscribed then good but please let this thread have my posts only. I will answer your questions later. :rolleyes:

    Day 1:

    1) bought 3 domains from 3 registrars - one emd (hyphenated), one related domain with keyword in it. Third is niche related but does not have keyword in it.

    2) Bought hosting account with 3 different companies. This way i will have full control on different aspects of SEO.

    You see iam quite not sure about seo hosting and stuff. So i will host each domain on different companies and then link the main emd with other 2.

    One domain is whois protected and other 2 have completely different and fake whois data. Another great plus point since all protected seems suspicious.

    Also since this is going to be a html site i have downloaded a HTML5 template which will be very useful.

    Topics :

    People always give others the keyword to write articles on and hence what you write is an SEO article and not reading articles. I'm doing the opposite - I will write articles myself to increase the user participation.

    I will use scrapebox keyword scraper to scrape some long tail titles related to my main keyword. This way the whole website will have a niche related look to google and will rank faster.

    Link Building :

    As i said that the competition is medium, i have to do just one thing - with the help of various link pyramids i need to get on first page (8-10 position). Because there are two special link building strategies - very powerful - reserved for that place. For me the only challenge is to reach the first page and then the first position will be a piece of cake (kinda opposite but i know what iam doing)

    ---Off to writing articles with research---

    Day 2:

    Website work :

    Only 1 page content posted. Since it's HTML website, the navigation will be worked upon day by day with almost 15 articles. On-page SEO of image and meta tags is done.

    Link building :

    1) URL posted to ping.fm
    2) 20 high PR social bookmarks given to the website
    3) 5 web 2.0 sub-domains created on jimbo, weebly, wix, yola and one secret non-spammed domain.

    The above links have been submitted to 20,000 xrumer profiles although the sub-domains have not been worked upon in any ways - no content at all.

    I have also created a wordpress blog but no links built to prevent banning. I will start adding links after 2-3 posts have been added.

    Also note that these profiles have been ordered from fiverr as i had $5 balance and couldn't encash it. So i decided to give xrumer a go.

    Tomm - more content and working on the web 2.0s begins. Also the other 2 domains will be completely built in 2-3 days time.

    Day 3:

    Iam building xrumer profiles myself since the order will take about 5 days to complete. Iam also writing more articles on the website and then start with slow link building.

    I have also bought 3 more domains and 3 more hosting accounts. It's better to rely on your own domain backlinks rather than just public ones.

    Today's main work :

    Build the other purchased domains and get them indexed without any backlinks (i mean without any backlinks to main emd) and also build the main emd and complete it. So it's just gonna be content-content-content.

    sorry for not updating - was busy updating my software.

    Ok past 3-4 days work :

    1) i have created over 40 contextual links using senuke x through social network, articles and press releases.
    2) I have gathered a list of over 7000 article directories for AMR. I have created and verified accounts.
    3) I have also scraped over 2.5 million forums using hrefer.

    The method is quite simple - I will submit articles using AMR pointing to my web2.0s links. I will then build contextual backlinks using xrumer to AMR and Senuke X links.

    I will keep it very less spammy to make sure some stick and will keep very general posts like waasup, iam new here etc.

    Then iam going to build 20-25 manual web 2.0 properties different from senuke and will use the same above procedure.

    Third important step is to social bookmark my website on pligg sites and scuttle using bookmarking demon. It normally gives me over 1000 posts but will try to go for 1200. Then again similar backlinking with the only exception that there will be no AMR involved here.

    Only bookmarks pointed to by xrumer posts and profiles.

    Website still consists of one-page. I will add 2-3 pages of content tomorrow. Also my one minisite is developed and second is in progress.

    Current rank - NIT 100
