I'm new to SEO, but not new to the concepts and fundamentals. I did alot of research. Watched alot of videos for SEO. I've built a few pages long small website to target a niche and I've been trying to rank it but I've been seeming to fail everytime. I made this website 5 days ago and I still havn't seen any notable progress. I'll tell you everything I've done so far. The website is good looking, better than others I'd say. The only problem is I can't get it off the ground. I kno`w that I've monetized my website with Clickbank's products pretty neat but the problem is that I don't have any visitors. It's not even in the first 10 pages of google bing or etc. My main keyword which is a single word reaches search volume for 110,000 a month, with not much competition. i couldn't see anyone in the first page of google even having the keywords name in their url's at first. the rest of the subdomains I've created within the website target smaller niche's within my niche like 'how to do (niche name)' and is (niche name) real'. I havn't progressed in any of them. I came to realize that I had to build links so I started using a tumblr account I made a 2 years ago. It has 300 followers and counting and keep posting funny pictures with my websites link on it cloaked with an anchor text of my keyword and it does get reblogged and liked (around 2-3 reblogs and 4-5 likes per picture). Yesterday I also started posting on niche related forums. I basically went to 4 different forums and participated, and naturally interacted with the fellow members after putting my websites link in my signature. I also thanked alot of people and added a few as friends so there would be more 'juice' in my accounts linking back at my website (read about this somewhere). I've made sitemaps for google and bing and uploaded both of them. I used google webmaster and analytics to keep track of what's happening. My domain and all my sub domains have been indexed by google, I checked. But when I use a tool like google page rank checker it doesn't show any of my domain or sub domain other than one. I'm actually really confused at what I'm doing wrong and thinking about dropping the plan. I've tried SEO even two years before and also 2 and a half years before but I always failed in ranking my self. Any help would be appreciated.
