    Alright so i had created a previous thread about trying to rank html site - long story short someone from fiverr blasted 10,000 links to my site instead of the web 20s and it got fukkd up.

    So this will be something i achieve as a member of BHW (I dunno but this is something everyone should have)

    Plan :

    1) Create a wordpress site with nice theme and navigation - Twenty eleven with custom sidebars done
    2) Add posts or articles every day - Bought 50 articles from freelancer.com (quite nice outsourcing)
    3) Reach atleast $5000 per month (which will make my total $10K)

    Niche competition - Medium (little difficult but iam not trying to go for ranking a particular keyword)

    The whole income generation is based on either making it a membership site or selling a one-time based product (an ebook + videos + a software). Later i will either flip it or keep it if i want to scale it up. But first concentrate on traffic and solving the problem and not generating income.

    The website will have over 400-500 posts but they will be general topics around my niche. People who visit the site will see the main topics on the sidebar menu and then i will be selling from there. Will probably do a clickbank release after i see how it performs in PPC and general traffic and read the reviews from the users.

    Anyway since i want to keep this updated almost daily or 4-5 times a week, i would appreciate if no one else posts anything like subd and all. Nothing rude but a journal with my entries only should prove very helpful.


    Day 1 :
    1) Entering 10 posts and linking them through SEO Smart Links
    2) Get posts indexed through seesmic ping
    3) Build the main topics myself as i can cover them as the reader wants - The rest posts are for SE rankings and exposure + authority by interlinking

    Thanks for the cheers :)

    Here are more details :

    1) Added 27 posts to the site and realized that date could give me problems as 4-5 posts everyday can be a suspicious.
    2) Download wp-date remover and activated it - problem fixed
    3) Submitted my rest 23 topics to freelancer and will post these in 3-4 days time
    4) Working with smart seo links to enable interlinking among site

    I won't be doing anything heavy (in terms of link-building right now). Very slowly i will get these posts indexed and will track my traffic. Whatever posts get traffic will get links first - few web 20s and social bookmarks.

    Good luck seems like a solid plan especially by monetizing it with your own product. Don't forget to use other traffic sources especially since SEO this days is unpredictable.

    Yeah i won't be focusing on SEO only. Main sources are google organic (as much possible without links - have done it before), youtube channel and then whatever revenue i get, invest it in FB ads and Adwords to scale it up.

    I have always been the type of building a brand and not niche site. A brand will get you more focus and targeted leads + more exposure. So I never focus on EMDs (atleast not long tail ones). Plus since my niche can have a workout routine, I can get it a de-facto status amongst the people affected by the problem.


    Ok so today :

    1) Bought SEO ALRP - changed the settings and theme link colors to give it more appeal
    2) Basic menu and general settings changed.
    3) All 28 posts have been interlinked the way i want.

    I will also record my expenses to note my ROI :

    1) Hosting + domain - $126 yearly
    2) SEO ALRP - $5
    3) 50 articles - $85

    My main plan is go make a sale before i think about links and scaling up. So let's see if i can make a sale on only interlinking and hand-written niche-related articles.

    hmm.. good start.. will keep coming here for any updates..

    even i believe in going with brand focused goal not niche.. also, according to current G algo updates don't want to put my feet in google train anymore.. if they want to give me traffic they will.. if NO then i am already targeting other sources for traffic which are under my control.

    I know. It's very hard to build a credible business and concentrate on only single source. SEO is good but maybe for service sellers, for website makers i guess diversification is important.

    Alright day end details :

    1) Logo done - $5
    2) Product images and banner created - $10
    3) Bought some training videos - $5

    All shopping done from fiverr itself. The videos will be re-branded using my logo and then i will start with my own multi-sales page articles and the product itself. Let's see when i receive the rest articles and upload them. I will interlink those as well and order another 50 articles on more focused topics of my niche.

    For me interlinking is as important as anything. The whole reason for wikipedia authority is the same thing - massive interlinking which means whole lot of posts. Iam thinking about 200-300 before i see good traffic.

    Hopefully should see some traffic (like 20-50 daily) from november beginning. If it happens all my wait will be worth it and then i will add more articles and videos to my site.

    ok here are few details of what has been done :

    1) logo added to main site
    2) youtube channel created and 6 videos added. I will add rest 46 by this week
    3) All 50 articles uploaded and interlinked
    4) Product image still not delivered - so waiting to create the graphics for that

    I have not setup analytics till now but since my youtube was created on a different email i will setup analytics on that account.

    Still have't started the main 11 articles which will be read by people with the problem. I guess other things are keeping me from it but NVM. Time to write another batch of 50 titles for freelancer.com

    Note : I never give anyone keyword and ask them to write articles on them. I write 50 titles and ask them to write articles on these title. This way i have enough unique content and they don't end up writing same content.

    Now i will have over 100 articles on site - all interlinked and ready to be indexed. Next will be product creation and then my first ppc campaign with free adwords coupon.

    I will start with link-building maybe december first week so that there is no red flag and ofcourse to multiple pages at once.

    Regards,

    Hello, purchased all. It's difficult to create exercise videos without learning proper techniques.

    Thanks and here are updates :

    1) Site is still undergoing minor changes and caches have been build.
    2) I have bought 5 new domains and have setup them on hosting.
    3) Will keep adding content on these sites from freelancer.com only - Remember iam building a brand so atleast 4-5 sites should talk about it. Also since content writing is cheap, i can easily add content on these blogs.
    4) The way i add blogs is quite complex - I hire guys at fiverr to research blog titles for me and then give them to freelancers to write articles. This way i save time and focus on building sites.
    5) I have over 75 titles while another batch of 100 are in creation. So i can easily add over 30-35 sites on each website.

    I have added my banner and buy now button on main site. Once i get time i will hire a freelancer to write 1000 word posts on 15-20 topics which i will give him. These will go in the ebook itself (with other content that i have written and diagrams etc. etc.)

    Then we will go with squidoo lenses, ezine submissions and youtube videos (specifically to target review and other brand related keywords) and then off to PPC marketing.

    alright not much to say right now :

    1) another freelance project for 75 articles posted
    2) My 100 titles project is about to be finished in a day or 2
    3) Google has indexed 12 posts out of 50 by itself through interlinking i suppose. Let's see what i can do to increase that number.
    4) I will start with GSA on all the posts (a link or 2 daily). Since there will be over 150+ posts i might build 200-300 links daily but only high quality and low obl in the beginning. - This i will do because each post is unique and about the related problems. If i could put them all on first page (for title keywords only) i could see decent traffic coming in.

    Not to mention i have lifetime senuke and UD too. Will run both after 2-3 months though.

    Will post updates later.
