    When I first got into IM, I always ended up quitting on what seemed to be going great. I will not get into details as this is not the important thing here.

    I am here to keep motivated and take the first step. My aim is not as high as those who say they want to make $1000 dollars a day but at least I have a goal.

    My goal is to rank my first mini authority site and make as much as I can from it. I have read A LOT of eBooks as to how to go about it but never got into doing it. So from today, I will actually start doing it.

    What have I already done?
    -I purchased a mini authority site from one the services here on BHW and got it delivered. It is in a niche I will not mention here due to unwanted competition. ( I will advise newbies to do this because it gives you a scope as to what to look for when doing keyword research, the theme that you should aim for etc.)

    - 7 keywords are already ranking in the 3rd and 4th pages without ANY SEO so I know this should be easy enough to rank.

    http://www.google.com/ N/A N/A N/A 29 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A 39 28 N/A 28 N/A 45 42 N/A 36 N/A
    - I have placed ad sense codes around the site for monetizing.

    - Purchased some spots on a private blog network for $60. Should be done delivering today.

    = No changes in ranks yet. I am waiting for about 2 weeks to see if the SEO service I ordered will make a difference.

    http://www.google.com/ N/A N/A N/A 29 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A 39 28 N/A 28 N/A 45 42 N/A 36 N/A

    What will I do now?

    -Do my own keyword research and buy 5 articles. ( I will use Ultimate Niche Finder).
    -Ordered the $35 Tiered link buildng service from these guys. Lets wait for 2 days and see how it will go. If things go well, I invest more money into the service.

    I'd build a solid diversified tier 1 first of all. Best of luck, looks like you're definitely on track!

    Yeah. I was about to order social signals but then realized it is better to just get some good tier 1 links first. Thanks for the suggestion.

    UPDATE

    The private blog network I ordered got complete. I still haven't heard anything from the tier link building service I ordered.

    http://www.google.com/ N/A N/A N/A 29 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A 38 28 N/A 30 N/A 46 43 N/A 37 N/A
    As you can see some keywords went down. I am hoping this is some kind of game google is playing.

    Have fun with the journey, hope you make a success and gain some further knowledge from your own findings. Screw all the ebooks about SEO, just test on your own and come up with your method.

    UPDATE:

    So I am happy because all most of the keywords are showed up and should be dang easy to rank. They showed up straight on page 3-4 on google and I don't know if the tiered back linking I ordered is responsible for this.

    Anyway here is a snap shot.

    Screenshot 2013-10-27 10.33.25.jpg

    Can't wait till 4 weeks to see how they link building will affect my rankings.

    - Ordered 3 articles and have not heard anything till now. Will wait for 3 more days.

    UPDATE:

    Nothing new happened. The articles are not delivered yet and so I decided to kill time by putting images in my posts. The rankings are still the same and I don't know if the tiered linking service I ordered is even in progress.

    UPDATE:
    -The articles are delivered and I am honestly disappointed. I had to edit a lot of things to get the article correct. Since I can't put this on my blog, I will just send it to ezine articles to get some back links so that my money is not a complete waste.

    -I will start ordering elite articles from Iwriter like twice a week since it is totally worth it and I can approve and disapprove articles I don't like/like. The quality is much better there.

    - I also wanted to say I got 1 click in ad sense which was totally unexpected. It is 0.01. HAHAHAHHA I guess because it is from a third world country.

    - So while my tiered link building is running during the month, I will buy about $60 worth of articles and each will be 700+ words. I worked overtime to get that money so it must be worth it. All of those articles will be split into posting once a week to my blog.

    - For these articles I do not really care about easy competition keywords. So I will just grab any good search and cpc keywords since my other low competition keywords will bring in the traffic.

    UPDATE:

    I haven't given up on the site. It is just that nothing new happened. I ordered an SEO service and waiting till the end of the month for it to be complete before I start doing anything. Don't wanna do too many backlinks to the site. Will post update when something new happens.

    MNS are tough. It is hard to buy good quality links and not blow the budget. DIY works if you have them time. Building a MNS to test the niche works best for me and I don't feel so bad spending for a few good links to see if I am on the right track. Then you can build out the good sites and either drop the non to under performing ones or let them set and try to earn back your investment. One good hit can pay for a lot of MNS.
