    Hi everybody.

    I am very excited to start this journey. I've just recently started to get in the online marketing world.
    So after reading a lot on the forums here and other places, I have taken action.
    I will be focusing on micro niche sites, and try to see if I can get the site to be number one on Google.

    So without further ado, lets get started!

    Day 1:
    I signed up for a free trial of Market Samurai, watched some videos about how to find the nugget keywords. After a few hours I came across something that really looked interesting. After some more investigation I knew that I've found my keyword.
    So I went to look for a domain, and lucky I was able to get the .net TLD of my keyword. Yeah!

    A few facts about my keyword:

    • A physical product
    • Marketed for women
    • Has 2400 monthly exact global, and 1600 local (US) searches
    • No scary competition in top 10

    My plan for the site, is not to make a big fancy blog with a sh*tload of content. But I will try to focus on having a fairly small amount of content, of high quality.
    I want to keep the expenses down for this. But I am also not afraid of investing some money in it. So I will be buying my content, and some of the SEO work as well.
    You must spend money to make money.

    I really look forward to tomorrow, where I will set up the site, and order some content!

    Day 2:

    So today I've set up the site using WordPress and a suitable theme for adsense.
    I did make a few tweaks to it, to have the colors, and font i wanted. I also installed proper pluings, analytics etc.
    So it is good to go!


    I used most of my time today on browsing Fiverr for some decent writers. And I think I found someone who can deliver my content. They have very good feedback, from alot of customers, so it can't be all bad.
    Never the less, I placed an order for some articles with them. I have set up some criteria for the articles, so I hopefully don't have to do alot of editing once I get them back.
    Now I can only wait for them to deliver the content. I hope it won't be to long, however I gladly wait for quality work.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Hey awesome thread OP. I would suggest looking at some of the content writers in BST as well, some may better to use than fiverr. Regardless, keep up the thread, I'll be monitoring it.

    Day 3:

    Today happened something i did not expect. I received some of the first articles from my writer, in under 24 hours. I was really surprised to get the first delivery already. The quality is good, so I am glad :)
    I ran through the content, and changed the formatting so it looks a bit better.

    After that I inserted the articles into WordPress, as a draft. I want to publish all of my initial content at the same time. I also found some nice pictures to match my keywords, and changed the name of them accordingly to my keyword. I don't know if this helps me in any way, but a visitor or two extra a month from a image search is fine for me :)

    All in all not a lot happened today, so I will leave it for now. I hope to get the remaining content back tomorrow :cool:

    Day 4:
    Things are going fast! Today I received the rest of my ordered content. I think it is amazing that you can get such quality work for $5, and then so fast :)
    So I've put in the last content, and formatted it to look pretty, along with some related pictures. I have to say, that the site looks pretty darn good.
    I also added some adsense ads along with some Amazon affiliate links to products related to my niche, and submitted my site to the big G.
    Now I just need to get some traffic to get things rolling :)

    My plan now, is not to start backlinking like a crazy monkey. I would like to have a more natural flow in it. So my plan is, to submit my articles to different social bookmarking sites over the next few days. And once my site starts to index, I will order a SEO service from seoclerks. Accordingly to my research, seoclerks is where you get most for your money, compared to Fiverr.
    I hope to have the most of my keywords indexed within a week.

    So quite a lot of things happened today, and things are going in the right direction.

    Can't wait to tomorrow :)

    looks like its going good but don't just buy from seoclerks to get the most links possible, you have to be smart with your backlinking. Also I find in easy niches lots of good quality content is all you need to rank.

    cool.dude123 - thanks for the insight. I won't regularly be posting new content. I have a few pages of high quality content.
    Also I won't just be getting a bunch of backlinks, but see if I can get higher quality links. It might cost a bit more, but I'll consider these initial costs as investments.

    All feedback, and insights are much appreciated!

    Day 5:
    Let the games begin! From the looks of it, Google has received my sitemap, and have indexed my site. From my daily SERP report, I have actually already been ranked on the fifth page for one of my longtail keywords. Nothing fancy so far, but this are going in the right direction.
    I have been adding my site to different social bookmarking sites, and will continue to do so over the next few days. I hope that doing this will let all of my keywords to start ranking within the top 100.
    So far it is not a thrilling journal, but hopefully that will come.

    From my analytics page, I can see that I've already had some hits for some of the social bookmarking. So I must be doing something right.

    I hope to wake up tomorrow and see a few more keywords ranked :D
