    Welcome

    I have successfully built a decent income with the wholesale/dropshipping business strategy
    and normally focus my efforts on promoting my tangible items with various outlets like eBay.

    Now it is time to put on my gloves and jump into the SEO industry. I am no expert when it comes
    to SEO and in fact I am not competent at all. My goal is to learn all the basics to SEO and get hands
    on experience in this field which I think is critical no matter what you are trying to promote.

    My Goal
    Learn all SEO industry phonics.

    Promote products and ecommerce successfully

    Investment Capital
    $0

    Targeted Goal
    Knowledge
    (not worried about banking just yet :) )

    My Plan So Far

    I have created a blogspot blog and I am going to write high quality English articles
    with low to medium competition keywords. Then I will see how well I naturally rank.
    Later on I will make link building a part of my portfolio.

    Tools I will Use
    My hands, Brain and eventually Serpbook

    I will do my best to update daily with statistics and what I am doing.

    What I have down thus far?

    Day 2
    I signed up to Blogger and wrote one article which contains 500 words and 5 unique
    low competition keywords. Note that the keywords have a low search volume of about
    3000 searches per month.

    I am practicing writing Articles with 3% keyword density which seems to be easier
    said than done because I am ending up with .5% keyword density and I do not see
    how to possibly raise it just yet without making the article choppy.

    I am using Microsoft Office for typing out my articles.
    And I am using the following website to check my keyword density

    http://www.live-keyword-analysis.com/

    Wish me luck guys and any advice, criticism or opinion that is constructive is greatly appreciated.
    You may ask why I chose blogger?
    Simple! Its free and a good way to start.

    I also just manually submitted my URL for Google to crawl it.

    Thank you for reading this and clicking on my Journey!

    51 Page views so far! But I imagine it is all robots crawling the site from directories.

    Thanks a lot Kinlee for stopping by my Journey thread! Means a lot since your Journey is one of the
    best I have ever read. :)

    Hey Condadon, Thanks for your support. Yup! Eventually I will probably need some link building
    tools for sure. But the way I feel now is that I need to know what I am doing before I start buying
    tools and automating it. LOL I do not want to automate a disaster :p

    Good luck! Remember that a large part of SEO is content. Pushing links to a site with nothing to rank would be bad.

    Thanks WoozyBluff for looking at my Journey! Yup! I am going to concentrate only on on-site SEO and rank
    naturally to get started. :)

    Thanks bro! I want to see what I can do without spending MadStacks. After I get my head around
    this thing we call SEO I will probably invest in some tools.

    Again I am grateful for the responses from you all!

    Day 3
    Well I am back guys with my third update on my blogger blog and SEO Journey.
    So far I have added my second 500 word article with 5 keywords that are the same
    as before and the keyword density now is averaging 2% :D

    Much better than the pitiful .5% keyword density I was facing before with my last
    article. So I am getting a feel for writing articles and naturally knowing how to write
    in my keywords for the right density without editing to much.

    I noticed that every time I add a new article my views increase by 50+ very
    quickly. 98% of my traffic is coming from the United States but strangely enough
    the rest of my traffic is coming from S. Korea.

    All is well and I will update you guys again soon!

    Thanks for your continued support!

    Hey Veyron! Thanks a lot man I appreciate the kind words and expert advice you have tossed at me at times. :)


    Great! Hope it helps you out :)

    Thanks a lot man! I appreciate the support.

    Really appreciate the kind words mate! Hope you gain something from reading it.

    I appreciate it Erickishere! :)

    Thanks bro! I will try to have it updated for you daily.

    Are you targeting 5 different keywords for each article and each keyword has 2% keyword density or is 2% the average of all the keywords? I don't have any experience in SEO either but I think I read that it's better to target one keyword/keyword phrase per article.

    Goodluck on your journey. Subscribed
