Like many of us, I too was once sucked into all of the ebooks and courses out there. It wasn't until recently that I actually decided to get the wheel rolling on a real project. I grabbed a nice kw that's very competitive but I should be able to rank for. Site was registered 4/2011 and is a couple weeks away from being 30 days old. My goal was to just reach Google page #1, but since I've already come so close to that I upgraded my goal to top 3 positions I've been bouncing all around riding the Google roller coaster as it tosses my site up and down the pages... This post is just to share my progress, get some feedback and maybe some tips from others. Up until now I believe I've been pretty whitehat with all my methods. Haven't explored bh methods but also don't want to risk sandboxing. So far so good being wh STATS KW Searches: (global/local/match) 150,000/20,000/broad 100,000/10,000/exact 115,000/15,800/phrase KW Pages: 10,000,000 (broad) 10,000,000 (exact) 800,000 (phrase) Domain Registered:4/25/2011 Google Rankings: 4/30 - page 17 5/2 - page 20 5/3 - page 17 5/5 - page 16 5/8 - page 17 5/09 - page 15 5/10 - page 17 5/11 - page 2 I'm pretty excited. Dunno why I flew up 15 pages to page 2 but I'll take it. Hopefully will dance around some more and land on page 1! Cheers!
