    I'm kind of new here, lurked for almost 6 months, had a few adsense sites and then recently I was looking at one of ebay monthly reports, detailing what best sells on ebay so I started a site on one of the top topics and I'm going to start a journey about ranking it to the top.

    Keyword

    Keyword Competition GMS LMS
    Keyword 1 High 1,000 58
    Keyword 2 High 368,000 27,1000
    Keyword 3 High 550,000 40,5000
    Keyword 4 High 74,000 8,100
    Keyword 5 High 301,000 40,5000

    Maybe I have bitten of more than I can chew, but I'm giving my self 6 months from this and I'm getting money from some clients I do web design for.

    Website
    I built the website, by hand using HTML because I don't like CMS and I don't trust the CEO that comes with it (Some of the wordpress templates I have used have multiple H1 Tags)

    So here is the site I have built so far, removed the keywwords from the site, I have got none of the articles written yet so that's why I'm just using filler text.

    Monetization
    When I get to the top for at least one keyword I will add Adsense as well as a custom coded Ebay Affiliate API, which will list relevant high selling products in the categories. I have no clue how much money this website will generate and no real way of judging as I have never used the Ebay Affiliate Network. If the website Is showing significant earnings I may flip it or keep it. I will also integrate Mailchimp into the website so that I can have a shot at email marketing as well, I will be using Mail Chimp for this and a custom popup on the hope page enticing users to enter there first name and email address.

    Updated
    I'll try and keep this thread updated weekly, I'll try get articles made for next week I need about 20 of them and I'll keep the thread update on how I'm going to rank the website via SEO (I'll post scanned drawings of charts and drawings of linking strategy).

    Update 1
    So far the websites getting built, need to sort out so that all of the links are built and make sure that the website is optimized for speed, the site is sitting at 89/100 on Pingdom, ill try and get it loading faster by Minifying the CSS.

    Done some keyword research for websites that are optimized and yeah, there isn't much competition. Well websites that have proper onsite SEO. So if they are lacking on that then I reckon I can step in and take some of the traffic :)

    You will save your self a lot of time if you go with a real CMS like wordpress for example. Also you can follow some nice guides around here on the forum on how to optimize your on-page seo for wordpress. It might take some hours if you are new to this.

    I don't think I would save my self any time with a CMS, all the pages are built and if I need a cms for blog I can just link that to the site, no plugins just simple H1,H2,title,alt tags that sort of stuff. Keeping it simple.

    Update2
    Site is now fully built and I have written my first blog post and completed the content on the first page of my site, both the page and blog post have images with they keywords in the 'alt' text, which is about 4-7 words long, im trying to use long tail keywords for the alt text. Ill build a page every day until the site is built and then a blog post every week, I'm expecting 6 months to rank the site. Once all the pages are done, ill scan some link building diagrams and show you my strategy.

    With the blog now fully up and running and I signed up for Google Alerts, now if you don't know what google alerts is is basically a tool that notifies you when a news report gets posted with a certain keyword. So I get updates on all the news reports on my keywords, so I use that to base my blog posts on.

    In the weekend I'm going to get a 1k article written for one of the pages on my site, that way I don't have to spend days researching the topic and I reckon it will be good that my page content isn't all the same length.
