    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.

    Sorry, I'm really excited. It was a bit of a self masturbation thread... it was a lot of work
    It just got PR6 in the last update also, so I knew it was going to keep rising with some effort!

    That's probably only getting you a few hundred visitors a day though?

    Thanks mate :)
    #1 is likely impossible, I would be a very happy camper if we made it to the top 5
    This is my retirement site... I hope :D
    I'm so stressed out and exhausted from this week though, I don't even want to get into it!

    Try 5000 from that keyword alone, we have a CTR of ~6% (excellent title) on that word.
    But that site also owns several 90k exact keywords also (it was already doing mid 4 figs/day). It's in the top 5 on those keywords and has 3-4 #1s on other buy centric 10-15k/mth words.
    I wish I could be more excited, but this whole stealth paypal $8k in an acct thing is giving me ulcers.
    Hopefully soon when the dust settles I can be more a part of the community on here again!

    250,000/30= 8,333 searches per day. #1 probably gets about 40% = 3,333
    #10 probably gets around 3-5% (oh just seen your 6%). But that's 500, not 5000?

    Check out some of my recent posts, I have tried lately to add some stuff to BHW.
    Again, I've been busy
    It's 3:30am here and I woke up at 8am to phone calls and crises.

    True, I haven't looked at the raw data yet.
    We're getting over 30,000 impressions/day and ~5000 clicks in just webmaster tools as of 2 days ago... it'll be even more today.
    You're right though dammit... must sleep

    Anyway I'm going completely nuts, as our offshore processing is still not set up and integrated (probably won't be tomorrow either ugh!), we're funneling money through a VISA only acct + lots of 3rd party processing/aggregated solutions.

    I don't know yet, tomorrow is going to be insane.
    We did almost 5 figures just today in revenue (80% margin)

    The $6MM/yr is based upon rudimentary data of customers and facebook likes to conversions ratio in this niche. (top site has a minimum of $10MM in revenue annually... and this is a low guesstimate)
