    Hey everyone,

    So I've written about 8 articles in the past couple days on my niche - I'm pretty educated for my niche and it happens to be low competition / high traffic.

    I have a few buddies that are into SEO that have 'sort of' helped me, and by that I mean they tell me 'what' to do, just not 'how' to go about it.

    This is what I've done so far:

    - Created a website
    - Written articles
    - Have OK traffic, for only being up for a few days

    So in regards to my SEO venture, I have a few questions:

    1. How many websites should I create? Obviously one website probably won't create enough passive income for me to quit my job.

    2. How many articles should I have per website?

    3. In order for my site to be successful, do I need a niche that I can constantly write about? OR just set up a ton of articles, and leave it?

    4. After my articles are written, I heard that I have to spin them before sending them to places like ezine. How do I go about doing this?

    5. Where is a place where I can find profitable keywords? My buddies use They Keyword Academy, I just wanted some second opinions.

    6. In order to get backlinks, how do I get them? Do I submit my articles to ezine, and they give me them? I'm confused about it.

    I hope some people can help me out - my ultimate goal is to set up a few websites with great niche keywords, that can bring me in some money via adsense and I'd have a steady passive income.

    1. How many websites should I create? Obviously one website probably won't create enough passive income for me to quit my job.

    See how you do with one first then scale it up to around 10-20 and if thats working out good then get more (30-50)

    2. How many articles should I have per website?

    10-15 is good , You could also make an autoblog and get automatic posts for little to no cost per article/post.

    3. In order for my site to be successful, do I need a niche that I can constantly write about? OR just set up a ton of articles, and leave it?

    Not really , As you can find lots of longtail keywords from that main niche and write about those and also rank them :)


    4. After my articles are written, I heard that I have to spin them before sending them to places like ezine. How do I go about doing this?

    You can do it yourself manually with TheBestSpinner and Submit them or you can just go to fiverr and buy an article submission gig from: http://fiverr.com/mikemeth/spin-and...r-1200-article-directories-article-submission

    Either that or you can do it yourself by purchasing AMR (Article Marketing Robot).


    5. Where is a place where I can find profitable keywords? My buddies use They Keyword Academy, I just wanted some second opinions.

    ItchesForNiches , Google keyword Tool , IMeye.org.

    Google is the only free one :)


    6. In order to get backlinks, how do I get them? Do I submit my articles to ezine, and they give me them? I'm confused about it.

    You leave an anchor text with your link inside of the article.

    When its been approved your article will show up with the links :)

    But there are many linkbuilding methods. Just search around BHW and you will find them.


    Good luck !

    Hi jarryd09,
    Do not underestimate the advice ahiddenman has shared with you in his post, it will have taken a lot of work to accumulate.

    Another keyword service on here is keyword kick.

    Definitely keep what you're studying & testing very 'narrow' to begin with. ahiddenman has given you some article specifics, in addition I've had most success with plain and simple quality, have a search round (on ezine & others) for the most successful/popular writers and de-construct their articles and 'bio-boxes' (where the anchor text link usually goes). Other than that think scale & diversity with regard to link building :)

    ahiddenman - wow, thanks for the fantastic advice! I just finished my 10th article on my first website, so I'm going to head over and message that Mike fella on fiver, and get him to spin my articles :)

    Hybrid - totally agree! I guess ahiddenman has / probably still does make some decent dough online ;)

    ezlegion - thanks for the advice! I'll look into the information you posted, I have a lot of work to do but I plan on staying persistent and consistent!

    I just have 3 more questions..

    1) When I submit the articles to this Mike guy on Fiverr, do I need to include my anchor text linking back to my site at the bottom?

    2) At what point can I start putting up Adsense ads on my website?

    3) When I start making other websites with different niches, I can bet that I'll have no knowledge on that specific niche. That's when I'll be hiring freelancers to write high quality articles for me, correct?
