    Hi,
    I'm not a newbie in SEO but never had a chance to scale enough the projects. Now i'm going to post here a weekly updates about building, promoting and selling the projects.

    Here is what I wil do right now. I've found a good niche in data storage that i want to write content for. I'll write the articles, collect subscribers and promote content using UltimateDemon and GSA.

    My main goals are:
    - understand what SEO techniques work now
    - find the ways to get into Google top fast
    - sell the project on flippa
    - scale the business model to 1k/month, than to $3k/month and till...

    Hope it will be interesting for someone to see how i grow.

    Thanks!

    Ok lets start. I've beed reading different blogs and forum posts about site rankings. I have a my own product and have a niche already.

    So looks like i have to choose the form builder niche for my challange.

    It's very competitive niche that has huge players but I need to sell my project so i'd better work hard and get what I want to achieve.

    I'll do several site promotion tests:
    Test 1. Create 7-6 pages EMD site with my niche keyword fill it with content and promote using Ultimate Demon + GSA. Main Tiers will be created using UD and additional tiers using GSA.
    Test 2. Create 7-6 pages EMD site and make quality backlinks only using manual submission for Tier 1.

    For the Test 1 i'll do everything generated automatically.
    For the Test 2 i'll make less links and write all content manually.

    Both sites will promote my product and link directly to it.

    P.S.: Just failed to sell my project for $35k. Client refused the deal because I left in the project web directory ots of trash unused code and didn't clear it before the sale! My advice to everyone who sells their projects. Clear the project folders before you make the escrow deal and give acces to the project code!

    It's a nice one. Flipping websites always have been a decent $$. It also works even better then CPA if you know what are you doing. Some members here at BHW already made 6 figures flipping websites.

    Thanks!
    Today i've written a new content for my product website found found old articles that were written by local content righters.

    Just looked through Semrush the keyword I want to rank first. It has 880 exact match searches and 2.95 price per click....

    The sites in top search results that i want to rank have lots of backlinks (used href to analyze):
    1. 115 000
    2. [FONT=Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif] 998 000
    [/FONT]3. 14 351 000
    4. 455 942
    5. 7 to the web page and to the domain is 500 000 000
    6. 700 to the web page and to the domain is 400 000
    .....

    There is no content or blog pages only product pages.
    Looks like it will not be easy to get the high rankings....

    I'll try to get in Google top using niche sites and if it doesn't work, I try to get in the google top using wordpress blog or Tumblr blog. Because they will look like 5 and 6 positions.

    Maybe someone who has experience can advice me what strategy to choose?

    Sorry for a long delay.
    I've finally started to get some results. I spammed google with backlinks using gsa and generated content. Now my two blogs on 3-20 positions in google for my keywords.

    What i'm doing right now.
    I used GSA to spam my WP blog. Now i'll update the content on the blog to see. Because right now it has autogenerated content.
