    I've just started a new site and plan to leave notes here of what I've done and my rankings.

    I've been out of the seo game for a while now so will be more than glad to take advise of you all as I progress through this.

    Site was launched on January 15th, and I am ranked for emd keywords in yahoo and yahoo already(ranked 3rd) but that's not the keyword I'm targeting, it was just the closest domain name to the keyword I could find.

    Today (January 18th) I have manually submitted to around 30 social bookmarking sites ie Reddit, delicious and have got a bundle of 100 +1's coming to it over the next few days.

    My next plan is to create some blogs pointing to it

    This is a great idea. I always recommend keeping a journal of your progress in any endeavor. Its good to learn from the past and it can benefit others as well. Rock it.

    A journal will help you keep on track and will pressure
    you to keep updating and overall can help you reach your
    goal.

    I always think keeping a log is nice because you can look
    back and see where you came from and where you are
    headed which plenty of times feels great.

    Good luck

    The site now has 180 +1s kindly provided by a forum member. I've also spent a bit of time answering some yahoo questions. I did this more for the traffic it can provide than for serp purposes, but will it help with rankings?

    I've also done a couple of bookmarks to it and posted on Reddit.

    I'm going to use senuke this afternoon to create some web2.0 accounts, but will then manually post to the sites myself. How many outbound links should I create on these and should they be to my money site or a mix of money site and other web2.0s?

    No rankings increase today but I won't expect to see any for a week or so anyway. My main competitors have literally no back links, just a couple of forum posts where people are enquiring about the product

    I've got 5 tier 1 properties, a yt video, 20 social bookmarks and some Reddit posts pointing to my site now.

    At first I ranked very high on Bing and yahoo but have dropped rankings. I was non existent on google but have got some solid increases in rankings there. Most of my traffic though has come from Reddit believe it or not.

    What would be good for my next steps? Should I create more tier 1 properties or should I blast the hell out of them with scrape box or senuke?
