Hi all, i have been lurking on this website for years and i have had many tips and red some wonderful info here. About me: 29 years old software engineering student. Java and C# competent as well as basic html and php. I have made many websites in the past but always for private clients (barbers, driving schools, restaurants etc). Currently focused on my education and some other projects. But in my spare time i like to experiment. Adsense: In 2010 i discovered keyword research and competition research. I bought an EMD .com website on my 10k monthly searches absolutely no-comp keyword and wrote an 400 word article. Later i added rss autoposter for a subcategory to fill other content (which has never ranked but whatever). Back then i had no idea about what Adsense CPC was. So my KW for that site appeared to have super low CPC, LOL! Got #1 Google within 4 months of nearly no SEO, just some manual blog commenting. Now this blog exists on autopilot bringing me 30-35$ monthly for about 3 years now. Current (fun) project: I know SEO has changed a lot since 2011 and i haven't been looking into it ever-since. I decided to make a microniche site (wordpress) on a subject i know a lot about, niche is a specific pet. Just want to see if this can get from the ground without too much effort, i have got patience. Domain name stats: Brand new, semi-EMD (only last letter differs) Keywords stats: Keyword #1 (main):5500 monthly searches USA,30/100 difficulty on kwfinder,easy on Keyword Inspector Keyword #2: 5300 monthly searches USA, 23/100 difficulty on kwfinder, easy on Keyword Inspector Keyword #3: 4400 monthly searches USA, 31/100 difficulty on kwfinder, easy on Keyword Inspector Keyword #4: 5300 monthly searches USA, 23/100 difficulty on kwfinder, easy on Keyword Inspector Keyword #5: 880 monthly searches USA, 34/100 difficulty on kwfinder, easy on Keyword Inspector Keyword #6: 1200 monthly searches USA, 35/100 difficulty on kwfinder, easy on Keyword Inspector Keyword #7: 1900 monthly searches USA, 39/100 difficulty on kwfinder, normal on Keyword Inspector Now only 2/7 of my keywords have cpc above 1$.. rest is pennies and i am fine with that as long as it ranks. You can have 1 website bringing 100$ a day at some point. Or 50 bringing 2$ a day, right? What have i done sofar on it? Onsite: Installed wordpress + yoast and all other plugins Wrote (myself) all articles and main page and posted them Made about us, privacy etc NO adsense blocks yet, want to rank first Offsite: Submitted to google index Submitted to webmaster tools + sitemap Bought 2 fairly good DA+PA guest posts (already delivered) Current stats: 65% of my pages are indexed. Main KW rank is 59 on google now. To do: Find some cheap form of SEO to help with ranking that wouldn't need a year of Adsense profits to cover itself and which won't penalize my website. But i have to yet look into that. Any tips or ideas are welcome..
