    Hello BHW,

    A little introduction about me first: I'm into IM world for last 2 years. Learned many things, spent a lot of time online and also earned many times.

    My past efforts: Initially I was into file sharing (movies, songs etc) via file hosts from which i used to earn very little income but that was my first income online and i do not regret. Then i went into adult niche sharing xxx images on forums and torrent sites and earning some better income around $30 per day used to be the best i remember. Then i left that too because of studies and was offline from IM for few months and then when i returned back i didn't want to do xxx or file sharing stuff ( its unethical right? definitely yes it gives you money but you cant sleep with relaxed mind at night dont know when those DMCAs are going to turn ugly and u may end up in law suits for few $ daily. I remember it would be in news that thepiratebay has been raided again and i'l start sweating. Reason: i had acount too with lot of copyrighted material shared). No i cant live with that fear.

    I wanted something which gives good $ and satisfaction too. I started offering services in freelancer where gradually i made some friends one of whom lent me his account as he was in other projects now. From that account , i used to offer social media services on freelancer which gave much better income of which half was given by me to the account owner as royalty.

    I was doing it for last 1 year for now and things were running very good. A big thanks to BHW!! Yes i joined BHW looking for a decent social media supplier and found the best guy here "Harry". He provides his services in BST here in social media, his site is socialsignals.com . I tried few others but Harry's services were too good that for the first time i started having repeat sales on freelancer. Yes customers were returning. Honestly I was banking good now even after giving 50% of profits. Account owner's eyes popped too unfortunately that now earnings are higher so he kicked me out now. Anyways i was expecting it sooner or later.

    But i made some contacts of my own from freelancer and have some clients in skype now but orders are too less. So i need some other earning model now.

    Thats my past, so now i am not a complete starter as i do have some of my past earnings to invest. I earned around $2.5k from Social media business in last 1 year as i had limited time due to my college as well. I have kept around $500 for this journey. I can go upto $1000 but not so fast and without surety il make it back with good return. Its my hard earned money.

    I read many things and i have finally decided to go with blogging i.e. Micro Niche Sites and monetizing them. Reason I have worked on wordpress and setting up sites and hosting a lot in past (at time of xxx methods) so i know how to setup things.

    Why I am creating thread here?

    I found my best SMM supplier Harry here, and I am pretty sure I will find many more who can help me and i can help them in this journey of mine.

    My goal: $1000 a month.

    Good luck to us all!

    Here's the work I have already done:

    Read a lot of blogs about niche sites projects and sites of IM experts (they claim to be so). Spent around 10 days learning all that already.

    Right Now i am doing keyword research.

    My goal is initially working on 2 sites and see whether the strategy works or not.

    So far i have already purchased one domain and hosting (godaddy) with exact EMD.

    Main Keyword has 1500 local search in USA with $7 CPC.

    Now working on finding the second niche I'l be making site on.

    Tools I am using: Long tail PRO (trail version)

    Market samurai (trial version)

    Google keyword planner

    Those who have experience, please advise if i have selected a manageable keyword or not:

    from market samurai:

    [​IMG]

    its a health related niche.

    As you can see almost noen of the sites have optimised their webpage for this long keyword (its 5 phrase keyword)

    The first one looks like some big site to me which will be hard to beat. second and third is wikihow and ehow 4th is youtube. according to my readings, these sites are pretty easy to outrank as these are ranking just because of root domain authority.

    Rest of sites are either small blogs or some authority sites but as you can see none of them is actually targeting this keyword (none of them have done on page SEO at all for this keyword). All of them have very less baclinks to page. so I consider this as low competition keyword. Please advise if i am right if i think that.

    I can research, I can write, I can work hard. Only thing troubles me is SEO. Because its the first time I am doing it..

    That was quite a nice read. I just wanted to say never give up and keep the ball rolling even with school stuff going on.

    okay bond, On your request I have read it all.

    My wishes are always with you mate. No need to PM me to wish you luck here separately.

    Now I see why your orders have reduced so much. Wish you all the best to this new project!!

    And yes if you will need social signals for SEO purposes for your sites, you know where to come :)

    Regarding your keyword question: Others will surely help. I am also not good in that stuff.

    Harry

    Thanks a lot.

    P.S.: I will be helping other starters like me a lot and expect a lot of help from experienced guys too. Please!!

    UPDATE: 2 Articles were posted on site 1 around 3 days back since then no work on it. For main keyword got the 110th ranking today.

    Will write more articles upto 10 maybe and then start working on SEO on the site.

    Presently busy in keyword research for my 2nd site. Thinking to buy long tail pro Its $97. But it saves lot of time really. I liked it very much. Any suggestions if its worth it?

    Will be buying serpbook subscription in few days.

    Purchased hostgator yearly hosting last night using their christmas sale offer.

    I need help: Can you guys recommend a good theme for micro niche sites. Is it fine to use same theme for all sites?

    I recommend Genesis theme. But it's not free

    And my suggestion is go for Amazon affiliate site, not Adsense site

    UPDATE: Couldn't work for last 2 days. Still working on keyword research for site 2.

    SITE 1 : Only 2 articles and few video pages so far. No other work done at all. Zero SEO.

    Ranking update> For main keyword: Google: 36 , yahoo : 11, bing: 19.

    Will wait few more days and then add more content to site 1 and thereafter will start link building manually.

    Purchased a premium WP theme too. Didn't want to go with nulled versions as there was risk of hidden affiliate codes or redirects.

    UPDATE:

    SITE 1: Now ranking for total of 3 keywords in top 100 not just 1.

    For main keyword new ranking:
    google bing and yahoo
    29 19 7

    So far i have not made a single backlink or anything off page seo. Just 3 quality articles i wrote myself. So i think content is more important. Ofcourse il add more content soon and when it reaches close to page 1 i will start doing backlinking too to push it to top 3.

    SITE 2: Finally decided to go with 1 niche i found. Its not a micro niche tbh. It has big search volume 100,000 for a 2 words phrase monthly but i expect some good traffic from lots of other secondary long tail words as main keyword has big competition. Also i can write a lot more articles on it as there is so much to write.

    wrote the home page article today. Site got indexed immediately after submitting to webmaster tools. Won't be doing any blackhat SEO on it as i plan to develop this more into authority site if it works.

    Purchased serpbook its good for tracking rankings.

    thanks for replying but i think u misread my query. I am not searching for free images but want to know if using duplicate images (already existing in google images) will lead to duplicate content penalty?
