Hey guys, Compared to the past, I am much better now at SEO and to that I thank Jesus. Just kidding, I thank BHW. I had another journey to make my first authority site but failed miserably. I got my site completely sandboxed and later de-indexed from Guuuuuuglle. Realizing that my SEO skills needed more work, I read around and put my knowledge to the test. Now I am back for my second try. Honestly, I could work in silence but figured it is better to make this journey public because I can : 1. Learn from others 2. Gain Motivation 3. Allow others to learn from my mistakes ( Do not order cheap links ever again. Meaning anything too good to be true.) 3. Faux biches, get money. I have one fashion site that is targeted towards females because it is easier to persuade them to make a purchase in my opinion. While I have been working on the SEO aspects of the site for hands free organic traffic later on, I have also been working on more instant traffic, Pinterest. Before I bore you, allow me to show you what my current stats are. This has been the course of 1 month of which I spent working on the aesthetics of the site. As you can see pinterest has been my highest source of traffic right now. What Have I done!? 1. Post 5 related images related to my article on pinterest at different times. Pro tip: Images posted at pm surprisingly have better interaction. Same for Images posted on Saturday at 8 am in my experience. 2. Done some little web 2.0 Back links here and there. 3. Ordered some press releases. Waiting for it to be delivered. 4. Posted 28 articles with none less than 500 words. Here are my current rankings. I do not plan on quitting and want to go grey hat with long term link building strategies. Hopefully there is much more I can learn here. Will update as much as I can.
