Yup, I did it folks. After 5 months of battling, struggling with banks, google, paypal (early stages). My site just struck gold. Just hit the #10 spot... the site was #22 last week for this keyword (250,000 exact/mth, buy centric keyword in a huge hyper competitive niche) What pushed me over the edge? This week I did all high PR blogposts + backlinked the hell out of them with web 2.0 pyramids and tons of high end bookmarks (2k high PR blogposts, around 7k web 2.0s linking to the blogposts + tiers of xrumer blasts and SB linking to tier 2 and 3) Bookmarks were all automated to the web 2.0s and the blogposts... Only about 15 bookmarking sites are worth it, I only post on d0follow ones that google actually indexes (reddit, etc... there's only 15) previously to get to #22 I had launched around 8 campaigns and pushed out about 25k web 2.0s to the site over the course of 2 months (with millions of Xrumer profiles etc). Well, I would toast to myself, but I actually have a whole lot of crap to do as we are on the verge of being cut off from $8k in a limited paypal acct :chicken_w Hope the ranking stays or gets better, though I am on the verge of a complete breakdown due to the stress levels of accepting this much money safely.
