    First of all, thank you all for this forum! :)

    With my 10 years of programming experience, and lots of failed projects (due to missing SEO/SEM and conversion) I'm really psyched about the information I'm getting from this forum.

    Before I go strictly grey / black hat, I decided to whip up another one of my ideas. I would really appreciate some feedback, and whether or not you think I got a shot at earning money with this.

    Project outline
    • A world war 2 site, which lists movies and games in recommended viewing order.
    • Ajax application which allows the user to select a progress per movie/game, in order to check it off as "detail, buy, or seen"
    • Highly optimized SEO (at least to my knowledge) with optimized keywords. Keywords reused for site names, title, even images and their description.
    • Social-Bookmarking buttons.
    • Revenue via AdSense on product detail page.
    • Revenue via Amazon by cloaked white hat "buy" link for each product.
    Success so far:
    • Project developed within 3 days with my own database format.
    • Reusable code to spawn similiar sites with different design/content, to expand my network.
    • Google crawled all of my pages within 12 hrs (site:domain) (still PR0 though).
    • Unknown amount of backlinks (been only online for 12 hrs, really), but some success with Backlinking Tool 2 which was posted on this forum.
    Next steps: (feedback?)
    • Fix the cookie code for the checklist application, as I want my visitors to return.
    • Trailers on YT which have my site as credit at the end.
    • Perhaps, start a blog farm with about 10-20 sites.
    • Perhaps, even CS the site, but I want to wait until I get some natural traffic to balance the CTR on Amazon.
    Site can be reviewed at:
    Any feedback to my SEO, my technique and approaches would be really helpful. I've been doing sites (for others) for so long, I really need to cash in soon. I know it's not going to happen over night, and I need to continue building up my network, but I really need a break by seeing a first paycheck. :(

    Should I do get some revenue going, or should you have any questions about methods used, I'm more than willing to respond (albeit being somewhat technical at times). :)
