    This serves a dual purpose.

    1.) This is to help me stay motivated and maybe get some pointers.

    2.) To provide any useful information (if any) to whomever might be reading it.

    First step.

    Create practice site for SEO. Done! Site is basically empty in terms of content. 2 posts and maybe 9 pages of static content i.e. privacy policy, about etc...

    Site has 100% keyword density for domain name / target keywords. Site is listed on first page from my computer (IP address) on Google SERPs. Heard of personalized search with Google. Not signed in to Google account brings up my website on first page. Same with being signed out of my account. Did some checks today using family members scattered around the state / country to see if they get my website on their SERPs as well. According to them they see it on their first page SERPS as well. Could use a proxy but as of right now I'm not wanting to bother finding a Google passed proxy to use.

    Site appeared on first page of Google SERPs the same night after submitting the site along with XML site map. Site is still sitting there after a few weeks of no new content being added.

    Just checked Bing, Yahoo. Nothing. Ran SEO Power Suites Rank Checker (Free Version). Nothing anywhere on Bing or Yahoo.

    Currently working on post type content to fill up site as well as static pages for additional featured information.

    Additional notes regarding the website: All content 100% original written by me. No articles on website yet that truly targets the keywords used in the domain name. No real off site SEO work done yet. Site had 143 unique visits on day of launch. Most likely through Twitter as I did some MINIMAL tweeting about it for a couple weeks before the launch. Site has flat lined pretty much since then in terms of visitors as expected. Main keywords are of low competition. No plans to monetize site as of yet as this is mainly SEO practice and to write about something that interests me. You know, get practiced at writing articles. :D Site is a Wordpress site that was set to block search engines up until the unveiling / launch....whatever.

    Goals by end of month: Fill up site with original content and get the whole site caught up with on site SEO. Will update thread at the end of the month.

    End goal of it all: On average $50 bucks a day through a website or group of websites using affiliate links by end of year. ALL I HAVE IS TIME ON MY HANDS. I could work on this 12 hours a day now if I wanted. Very blessed with this opportunity and I hope I don't mess it up.

    Possible useful info: Google SEEMS to give some weight to keywords used in domain name. I read here and there people wondering if Google does. Thought I would share my findings.

    God Bless,

    MoonWatcher

    Mate, Google DOES give first priority to keywords used in domain name. It surely DOES, No Doubt.

    hehe No, I use HostGator and the site I have set up now isn't really meant to be a money site. Just a practice site. I'll be starting two websites that will be used (hopefully) to make money once I have my current site filled up with content and have finished all onsite SEO.

    Zilch. The site I have up right now isn't really meant to be a money making site. The next two sites I do will be meant for making money.

    If I stay on schedule I'll have 3 months to reach my goal by the end of the year.
