    I know there are other LinkPushing case studies out there. While I believe all the case studies are great in their own way I feel that each of them miss a little something that the masses are looking for, tackling a semi-difficult keyword on a budget. Hopefully I can fill that void with this one.

    If you dont like this case study you dont have to read it, but if you dont have anything constructive(either negative or positive) to say then go troll the lounge. This is for people that are interested in discovering how powerful LinkPushing can be.

    With that said let me tell you about my case study. The main KW I will be using is on the high end of what I would consider medium competition.

    Search Stats:
    Global Exact Monthly Searches - 3,700
    Local Exact Monthly Searches - 1,800
    Global Broad Monthly Searches - 10,000
    Local Broad Monthly Searches - 5,300

    Payout:
    Broad CPC - $8
    Exact CPC - $17

    Search Phrase Info:
    Keyword Phrase returns 14,200,000 results
    "Keyword Phrase" returns 2,300,000 results
    allintitle:Keyword Phrase returns 1,050,000 results

    Competition Info:
    Google Adsense:
    Exact - .98
    Broad - .78
    Market Samurai:
    [​IMG]

    Plan of action:
    The domain is a ".net" exact match domain. I purchased the domain over the weekend (6/18/11). I am using the 12 LinkPush subscription. The only thing other than LinkPushing that I will do is add the domain to my G Webmaster Tools account. The site will have a generic contact us, about us, and privacy policy page. In addition, I am anal about on-site optimization, so everything that I know of has been done to have the best on-site SEO presence possible. So far I have written 4 articles, I did a Linkpush to each of these articles today. I plan on writing 8 more over the next week. I will do 1 LinkPush to each page with an article (the LP will be done the same day the content is published). I will use the main KW of the page as the first KW for my LinkPush, the closest other KW I can find for the second KW, and the main KW for the site as the 3rd KW. I will use the manual selection option to choose my articles on the LP site and I will choose the closest one I can find to my KW.

    The rank for the site will be updated every 2 days until it ranks in the top 10 pages. After that I will update the rank every day. Please do not PM me about this case study, if you have questions ask them in this thread.

    I will not share the url or keywords with anyone so please dont ask. There are two reasons for this: first I dont want anyone to skew my results; and second I dont want to make it easy for the big G to discover any type of footprint that could be used to unravel LinkPushing. I use LinkPushing on over 100 low competition micro niche sites and have great results, so the longer this works the better for me.

    @easycash - Thanks!

    @johnyd77 - you can use Market Samurai like easy mentioned, or you can log into your adwords account when you use the keyword tool and click on the columns button (top right) and select all columns. The CPC will show up next to the results.

    If you check the box for exact on the left hand side and look for the result with the keyword in [] then the CPC in that row will be the exact cpc

    Thank you.

    Are you saying you had better luck ranking hard terms than easy ones?

    And which part are you referring to being easy?

    I doubt you will ever rank with only link push.

    No offence, but that keyword may be low search volume, but from the data on that screen shot, I would not even consider going after that keyword.

    Be very interesting if you do get the site ranking.

    @dik
    Yea its high competition for my standards too, but I know there are some big timers on here and I didnt want to get bashed for calling (what they consider to be) a mediocre phrase a difficult one.

    @ IamNRE
    Well, maybe I wont. The goal of this project was to TRY to take a difficult phrase and make something of it with a linkpushing plan that anyone can afford. Im hoping the EMD will overcome a lot of the other factors. In addition I have 12 other secondary keyphrases that I am aiming for that are not as difficult. As they make it in the ranks I will put their info up too.

    Thnaks for the comments and opinions though. Save the thread and see if I can pull it off.

    Interested in the results of this. Only been using LP for like 3 months, and only just seeing results for my small sites, but want to know what its like for competitive terms.

    What are the other sites that are ranking high?

    I was in the same boat as you. Prior to this I had low comp (under 300k in MS) micro niche sites on a linkpushing diet. They were doing well. Im hoping to at least learn a little from this case study.

    If your asking what sites are on page 1 of the results here are a couple; VerizonWireless, ATT, and virgin mobile.

    Sorry it has been so long with since I have given an update.

    I have been super busy and there hasnt been much to update you guys on.


    Until now.... I was running a report in my adsense account today to find that this domain had made a couple bucks. After doing a rank report I found that I have position 19 for my primary keyword (stats below), and I have position 5 for a secondary keyword which is also a pretty valuable keyword.



    Keep in mind this is with only 1 Linkpush per page and only 12 pages of content. So far so good.

    Now that this domain is gaining some momentum I will try to update it at the minimum once a week, but definitely when any big changes take place.

    You have got very good results, I only tested 1 linkpush from fiverr to my spammy adsense page and it climbed from 15 to 11 rank :)

    Please clarify, you blasted every page with one linkpush, so the homepage got only 1 linkpush blast, am I right?
    If it's the case in my opinion it should be failry ease to rank on first page by blasting the homepage a little more. Do you plan to do it?

    Thank you for sharing this case study.

    That's pretty nice!

    Just out of curiosity, how much are you getting per click on average?

    Yep, one link push per page. So one on the home page and one on every article page.

    To be honest, I am shocked that only 1 LP/page has achieved these results for these KW's too. I knew I could get it ranked but I figured it would take more than just one.

    CPC is ranging from $1.10 to $3.47 right now.
