Hi everyone, I have seen a few of these threads in the past and found them quite motivational. I have decided to start one myself partly to try to help others and gain advice myself but also to keep myself motivated. If I am updating this thread regularly then I will have to make sure I am doing something to post about. A little background - I am currently working as a self employed driving instructor but these last 18 months work has been pretty hard to come by due to increased competition and people having less money to spend. I have dabbled with the internet a little bit over the last few years and picked up bits and pieces of information as I've gone along. I own a couple of ecommerce websites that I set up myself. One makes decent money coming up to Christmas and the other one makes small amounts at certain times of the year. After finding this site a few months back I used a couple of services from here coupled with info that I had read on the forums and have managed to get my Christmas site in top 3 SERPS for my main keywords. I'll be working on this maybe once a month from now on to try and keep it there for the end of this year. I have bought Scrapebox and have a cracked version of SEnuke X. I am still new to these tools so will be trying to learn them as I go along. I also plan to use some fiverr gigs and maybe some more services from BHW to help along the way. I have also got other ideas for different sites and projects. I want to try 4 or 5 different things to see what works and makes decent money. I will be updating this thread with what I have been doing along with any progress I have made and any SERP increases etc. Hopefully I will be able to call on some of you for advice on things too. DAY 1 - 2nd January 2012 Today I am planning to watch some youtube videos to try and learn about wordpress. I have made one site using it a couple of years back but it isn't the best and I want to be more familiar to make better quality sites. I will also try and do a little bit of keyword research for one or two of the projects that I am looking to start.
