    Hi everyone, I'm new here.. not new to IM though, am a programmer and have a web dev business. I'm going to try and build up some nice residuals using methods posted on here, and was wondering if I could run my plan past some successful IMers (this obviously uses many methods on here, apologies for not crediting people, none of these ideas are my own)

    My plan is to build a website, based around a medical disease that people get very self conscious about. It's global/local is at 135,000/18,100 respectively per month. I plan on plowing $500/£325 into this site. I will spend nothing on domains, as I have a healthy opensrs account, as well as nothing on hosting as I have a good server setup. I will create a basic site with lots of content on it relating to the medical problem. Probably start with 5-10 pages of good unique content. If anyone has any ideas on boosting natural SEO quickly with BH methods, please let me know. I know I can spin articles, but spin the same articles over and over again on my website... or? Not sure.

    The things I am not sure of, are monetization -- should I use CPA offers, try and build up a list to market affiliate links to, plain ads, what would convert best? I was thinking of on the front page, maybe posting three reviews of top products, with aff links.. or to find a great product, and use CPA offers to give them a link to the "guaranteed cure."

    I'm also not sure on the best way to spend my initial investment. I think that paid traffic won't be as good, not sure about solo ads and how they would interact, especially as I'm not sure on my monetization method (obviously if I do not mention something I'm considering, it does not mean I wouldn't use other methods.) I would like to build my rank to #1 as quickly as possible. Would any experienced forum member be interested in talking to me in private, as I understand my keywords etc would be affect what tools/services I should use. If this works, I will scale it up, and look at other embarrassing medical problems with "guaranteed cures."

    I am extremely driven, and want to be successful from this, as I believe it has some fair potential... but I would really appreciate an expert to let me run through my idea with them, and get some feedback on numbers, competitiveness etc.

    Thank you for reading my post, I look forward to the replies, and would like to add that I am already extremely grateful for all the useful posts here.

    You will be lucky to scratch the service of any medical based niche with only 5-10 pages of unique content on a newish site.

    Although there is a lot of low hanging fruit in the symptoms/cures/treatments area they are pretty difficult to rank in quick time as you'll be up against very respected websites.

    Not impossible but you might have to do a lot more work than you've planned for, especially since Penguin.

    You plan is weak. Since you are new on BHW, I suggest you read threads and information until you have a grasp of what works and what doesn't.

    Well you have come to the right place for this, now you just need to start using the search button to gather the info and start using it.. Everything on and about seo has been written here numerous times, but it will be your job to find, we are not here to spoon feed you..

    And for difficult medical niches you will need a shitload of articles. Hint, find long tail keywords related to your main keyword and start focusing on those first.

    Good luck!

    Try out your plan and learn. Then make a new plan and do it again until you hit a winner :D

    I am also going after high traffic, high competition niches not with seo but by dragging the viewers to my sites on their own terms with free list building techniques. You can start with free mailchimp, free classifieds, animoto videos, free plr articles, etc... Then scale up later with paid services. Monetize with CPA and clickbank throught your free tips as faster, better alternatives to the freebies.

    I have just started myself but things are going well and people are actually sharing emails with friends willingly so I'm getting unsolicited optins :D

    I lost all stomach for focusing on SEO as it has not been stable. Instead, I see seo as icing on the cake when I get it. But what do I know? Not much ;)

    Your plan sounds good but in order to get answers to most of those questions you can just search the forum. Plenty of people have asked before and been directed to previously answered topics! :)

    Hmm thanks for the info guys.

    Are there any seasoned BHers with a great idea but no bankroll? I'm considering doing a 50-50 profit share with someone experienced. Should be no problem once scaled up. I'm looking for someone with vision. Any takers?

    Sorry to bump this thread. I hope I do not break any rules in doing this.

    Since then, I've looked into lots of different methods. I think it's best I change my tack. I'd post in the JV forum but I need 50 posts. Hopefully you guys can take me for an honest guy who wants to slowly earn his trust here though.

    I'm a very experienced programmer, can do lots on servers with lots of advertising agency experience, so I can build very sexy websites and handle anything technical. I also have some capital ready (£300-500, maybe £2k next week), do the conversions yourselves :) If things look juicy I can make a lot of money quickly doing programming, but as I say I want to sit at home all day! :) Please message me if you are an experienced blackhatter, would prefer people working with either dropshipping or affiliate networks, but anyone making real dough that could do with having all technical stuff done for them, please get in touch.

    Thanks!

    5k a month is a nice goal

    maybe start with a smaller goal like 1k then work up

    best of luck though
