ok. I have been reading and reading for weeks and I just need a game plan to stick by. I have read posts claiming so and so works and I just want some feedback. I started out black hat, a little testing, and all seemed to work ok. Not much money, but not a big deal. Then I really got into keyword research, found a niche that I wanted to try and market a clickbank product. I went whitehat, unique content, no spamming, etc... Easily made #1 on google with 1 keyword and #3 with another. My other "test" site is #1 for another keyword and it was just leeching from an rss feed - no spinning or anything. Anyway, I got the keyword research figured out, which seemed to be my biggest hurdle. I have a nice list I can't wait to utilize. What I actually need help with the most is backlinks, blog farms, and link wheels. I get kind of lost there. Let me give you my goal for my sites. adsense. I want adsense to be my primary source of income from my money sites. Affiliate marketing is not my thing. I want to plant adsense all over the top of the blog and keep all the content down low on the page. the content is simply to get me indexed for the keyword, not for actual human visitors to find information. If they have gone with a long tail search, i think they'll click my adsense links (a theory). Blog Farms & Link Wheels: I PROMISE i have been reading. Exactly what content am i putting on these bl0gger/w0rdpress/squid00 blogs? Am i spinning content from my money page and just giving links to my other blog farm sites+money sites? Is it that simple? And when I'm pinging, am I pinging each blog AND post in the blog? Example - blogger with 5 posts - am I pinging each specific url - the home and post urls? the best way i know to ping a site is ping0matic. Now to the shitty part I'm not getting. Backlinks: I was thinking of basically spamming blogs in hopes of ******** links. Kind of an old trick, but it's all I know. Suggestions on software to help this process would be great. I'm understanding that i needs thousands of backlinks for a site to be successful for the future, but what about the quality of the backlinks? Because the keyword site I currently have at #1 only has 1 backlink. lol. I am completely aware that results take days, weeks, or even months depending on the competition. If I'm going to start buying hundreds of domains for money sites, I want to make sure I can make them as successful as i can. I am not looking for a "hold my hand" experience. Just some helpful advice would be great. There is so much conflicting info on the forums it's hard to keep up. btw, I am all for the "bootcamp" mentioned 3 months ago and I am seriously ready to fork over 20 bucks to get some quality insight on the minds of you blackhat geniuses. You guys are the best of the best. I'm so close I can taste it. I'm willing to learn, I'm just trying to catch up.
