    Whilst i let offline ventures earn me autopilot income I would like to welcome you all to watch me do SEO on a new blog of mine. The Niche is Free Online RPG game. It is for a game i used to play a lot since 2003. The game is called: Revelation: Lands of Kaldana. I just started putting it together this morning, it took me about 2 hours to get everything set up the way i wanted. A good half an hour was spent finding the template, perfect and worth the wait though.

    I will NOT be monetizing it in anyway and am doing it for free for the owner of the game and its small community.

    I have submitted the site to these blog directories:

    blogtopsites
    blogtoplist
    topblogging
    blogcatalog
    LSBlogs
    Blogdigger
    MyNewBlog
    TopBlogArea
    DigNow
    TopBlogRateDir
    Blogs.com
    Blogifer
    Skinny
    Bloggernow
    BlogsOnTop

    I have done some onpage seo which comprises of a meta heading and a small 6 phrase meta keyword list:

    Code:
        <meta name="description" content="Revelation: Lands of Kaldana. A 100% free downloadable MUD. The internets best kept secret.">
        <meta name="keywords" content="free online games, free games, free pc download games, free internet games, free online multiplayer games, free online rpg games">
    I will be submitting a few articles when I get the time and I will be updating my progress word for word here. These articles will be submitted to a select few high pr article directories and bookmark directories. You can visit the site at:
    Code:
    www.revelationgame.blogspot.com

    Which article directories do you intend to post to? and do you send a unique article to each one or spin a unique?

    Good luck!

    Im still waiting for google analytics to update. The global traffic feed that comes with the template shows some nice early activity though:
    Code:
    http://live.feedjit.com/live/revelationgame.blogspot.com/
    . Ive done 8 Social Bookmarking Submissions with 6 keyword tags that i used in my blog meta tag. Sometimes i need to use less keywords depending on what each social bookmarking site allows of course.

    These are the kind of people boosey says he would like weeded out. Posting things like that should get warnings, it is detrimental to this community, any community in fact.

    Whoever posted that is a fool. Blogspot domains hold incredible authority, even though they're subdomains. Anyone who has a clue about SEO wouldn't have made a post like that. Look forward to seeing you strategies wakkaoko, and thank you for sharing.

    Blogifer and Digg Submissions show up. The blog isn't indexed yet though. I still have a lot more work to do. I would like to get the games community to get involved as well.

    Edit: I submitted to 16 social bookmarking directories.
