    I have decided to rank a site ONLY using social signals and social traffic. No SEO whatsoever. Some people don't believe social signals work but a majority do believe social signals are the way to go now. You can just tell with the huge amount of social signal providers/services EXPLODED in the BST lol
    So let's get started:

    Tools:
    • Web2rule
    • Pinblaster
    • Proxies
    You can find Web2rule and Pinblaster here:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...k-your-sites-web2rule-has-been-unleashed.html
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...software-follow-like-pin-repin-autopilot.html

    The reason why i'm using pinterest traffic is because its simply amazing. I know because i have direct traffic from pinterest before. You can click on this link for proof.
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...urney-directing-100-000-visitors-website.html
    Even though pinterest is filled with women its a great way to make money, find a nice women's niche with great CPC from adsense, nice CTR theme and you're good to go. I'm positive this is going to be a great journey once the traffic and $$$ come in.

    I'm using web2rule because it's a great software, i have used it before and seen all my keywords go up. I definitely want everyone to get to know more of this software and actually take advantage of it!

    What I have done so far:
    • Bought an aged domain related to my niche
    • Bought an authority keyword package
    • Got my sister to help me write articles lmao
    I actually never knew my sister can write. I read an article last night she wrote for me and it was really good probably because she reads books all the time. I'm just lazy/suck at writing and don't read books...lol

    Also, If you are looking for a keyword package and hate doing keyword research like me or just plain lazy; here's the link I bought the keyword package from:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...amazon-keywords-micro-niche-keywords-8-a.html
    This is to answer any questions about where I bought my keywords from.

    The Plan: Use Web2rule to rank the site on Google Use Pinblaster to direct traffic from 2pm-4pm / 8pm-10pm Write articles with the help of my sister
    Monetization Method's:
    • Amazon
    • Adsense

    I will end up updating the thread once my site is index in google, and use serpbook to track my keywords. I'll end up signing up for serpbook once the site get's index, cause I really can't do much if it's not indexed. When i update i'll take a screenshot of my keyword rankings/earnings, picture's are more fun than seeing words. nomsayian. So till then! See you soon BHW members.​

    The experiment sounds great and it could shut up all the people saying social media doesn't affect rankings, but using an aged domain is a flaw in the experiment. Did you check if the domain has backlinks? Did it have any PR in the past?

    Good luck with the test. Made similar experiments more than a month ago but I prefer to say more later, lets just see how your tests will go for now. :)

    could you tell the competition of niche ? I have ranked a few websites for very low competition by just using twitter profiles.

    Good luck ! I am doing this experiment right now. The domain is new, the keywords have MS around 5000. I'll target health niche. Using Web2rule, Pinterest and "add me fast".

    cheers!

    The fact that you direct traffic just between certain time intervals is indeed interesting and well thought out. Will be following closely to see how you do. Good luck OP :)

    Hmmm..You're actually right about this. You know what, i'm going to make a brand new site then. No age domain. This will actually make the experiment more interesting.

    I'll order a new domain on cyber monday. Namecheap has some sweet deals on that day. $1 domains :p Till then Blackhatters.

    UPDATE #1

    -I said screw it till waiting for monday namecheap deals, i needa get this journey going.
    -I ended up buying a brand new spanking domain to make this experiment more exciting for everyone.
    -My sister and I ended up writing 5 articles with the past two days even when thanksgiving was going on too lol. The keyword's i'm focusing on is around 500-1k monthly searches (long tails) for now. I ended up purchasing the big 5 main keyword articles here on BHW a week ago, still haven't received it. No biggie though.
    -Pasted the 5 articles on, on page seo was done as well.
    -Got a nice theme on, installed the necessary plugins needed and all that jazz.
    -Set up facebook, google plus page, twitter, and a youtube channel for web2rule

    What made me super happy is that the new site got indexed in 1-2 hours on google, that's such a huge plus. Now we just have to wait till the content gets indexed, it's probably going to take 1-2 days so we'll just have to see. After when the content get's indexed I will be using serpbook to track the keywords.

    On to web2rule;

    I have put the website google plus, facebook, twitter, and youtube channel in. Dripping youtube subscribers, twitter followers, google plus followers and facebook likes. Dripping a total of 30 subscribers, likes and followers in 10 days. AGAIN I'm slowling dripping them in. After that, i started up the domain campaigns for the 5 articles. It's going to drip social signals in these articles for the next 10 days, it will probably finish early than 10 days so probably a couple of days. Another tip for you guys is that You must connect google plus authorship to your website, It will definitely boost up your keywords.


    Many people actually don't really know how to work web2rule but here are some tips taken off the thread. I'm going to follow these for optimal growth and all that jazz.

    Tip #1

    Our goal for the users is to use all the modules on their sites. Ideally taking a new/existing site and creating for that site-If they have not yet.

    Set up their Youtube channel/pinterest boards/Google authors/FB page/twitter account
    Then Start to....
    Add subscribers to tube channel
    Add followers to Google author
    Add Followers/fans to the Fb page.
    Add Followers to their twitter profile

    At that point..run the

    Traffic Modules from...
    Google
    Direct
    Twitter
    Pintrest
    FB Fan Page

    Then the obvious-
    Run projects/campaigns
    Run the other modules
    FB likes
    Google plus
    Twitter tweets

    What we see in users that are getting the best results are they use all the modules/ most of the modules/ all on a steady drip feed. So I know this was a long winded way to get my point across, we can not make modules optional. It just runs counter to what is actually working best. Google is really getting darn good at seeing if a site looks real and has some social-ie real people traction. That is the entire point of what we do...[​IMG]

    Tip #2


    Month One-on new domain, just run campaigns for month one/ can add few extra modules at low volume to home page.
    During that month, make sure to set up, if you have not, all the fB/twitter/tube channels/pintrest/google author accounts related to that site. I have about 300 w2 users on my skype and the users who do the best I have found use the most amount of modules in moderation.- you really want a FULL spectrum presence for any site now...just do it. Lazy is dead nowadays mostly.

    Month Two, run campaigns same as before, start to pick out few key pages to increase the drip on using the separate modules, ie pick your 1-5 core pages that you want to really rank for.
    Month Two, start getting followers to authors, traffic via pintrest/fb etc, start to build out tube channel , etc..just start growing the sites overall foot print.

    Month Three, pretty much the same as month two, except you can really start to use the other modules more freely as the site has a presence- after this point, I tend to target sub pages a bit more below my core pages that i want better rankings for and just put sites on maintenance type mode.

    add livejournel to your social sites. it helps to index any post too fast. I am already running a website where I use social signals only without any other backlinking method and it is going very well until now. already ranking on som of my keywords. the only point is I use sccop.it and digg as well combining fb, twitter, LJ and pinterest.

    Hey guys, it's finals week/ almost end of the semester so i'm going to be focusing on school more than I.M at the moment. But i'll update what I have been doing now :)

    -I have finally received 5 x 1000 for the main keywords that i need to rank for.
    -I pasted the 5 articles on and did on page seo. There's a bunch of on page seo guides here on BHW, just do a quick search on them. (Articles are still not indexed yet)
    -I set up web2rule for those 5 keywords/articles to rank on google. I'll be keeping a small note/date when i started web2rule for the 5 main keywords.
    -I'm contemplating on purchasing the rest of articles at the moment since my sister is a lazy poop. And want to do makeup reviews instead. Oh well I'll get the last laugh when she starts working at mcdonalds next week. I'm sure she would rather write articles than work at mcdonalds lmao.

    I also started to direct traffic to the site via pinblaster. My pinterest accounts are ghosted at the moment but i'm not sure when they'll be unghost..usually it takes like a week then the insane traffic starts to come in. That's just my experience though!

    I literally just used my tumblr blog (75k followers) to promote the site. The traffic isn't bad at all, got a couple of clicks notbad.jpeg so that makes me wonder if i should use xtumblebot to direct traffic. But we will see!

    I'll update next week after finals have ended. Till then guys! :cool:

    Update #3

    Hey guys, small update

    -I got 16 articles on deck targeting the keywords andres have given me. I need 14 more articles to go to complete the package and finished targeting all the keywords that's in the authority package.
    -Traffic has been 100+ UV a day from pinterest
    -I'm actually starting to get visitors from google. It doesn't say what keyword the person typed in, from google analytics. If someone has a solution to this, please let me know!

    I have made $1.37 so far.

    Can someone give me tips on using serpbook? Do i put in my main site url and put in the keyword? OR Do i put in the content url site and put in the keyword in.
