    Hi guys. I started off learning SEO from Becker's Youtube videos (which seems to be mostly bullshit), and moved on to reading content from Charles Floate, BHW topics, and other people's blogs.

    I built a money site that generated about $1370, and I put in about $700 probably to get the rankings to the second page. Most of the traffic so far has just come from posting on people's articles and promoting it a bit on various forums, so I anticipate the revenue can grow a ton if I hit the 1st page.

    I'm looking for expert's tips on how I can crack the 1st page.

    Things I've done so far:
    -Around 15 Tumblrs
    -Around 20 PBNs (few are good, some are decent, some are really bad). I started using Scrapebox after the first week to find my own PBNs. My Ahrefs trial ran out two weeks ago and I haven't built any PBNs for a while.
    -Setup a twitter (Just renamed an old twitter account)
    -Setup a FB 0 likes :'(
    -Talked a bit on some forums, not many but here and there. Linked back to site, probably got some of the revenue from this.
    -A few blog comments, but they're harder to find now. Got some profit from this method I think.
    -Made a Google account, and setup a Google+ Profile for the account (not sure if this is the proper way to create a G+ page though)
    -Am using GSA, very noob at the software atm. Set it up to build 5 links to money site per day. And some more links pointing at my PBNs and 2.0s.
    -Hired a guy to make a 'review' video, uploaded live streaming to YouTube, and put 90 Likes and 3k views on it. Linked back to money site. Building links to it with GSA.
    -Made a chrome extension with link to my site, from a guide on this forum. Haven't built any links to the chrome extension yet.
    -Tried to use SAPE but had a hard time getting the CC verified. Is SAPE worth it?

    Also, just realized I can write PBN articles and post them to Reddit and get a decent number of upvotes (my friend had about 8 fake reddit accounts, and I'm making look natural and commenting with from VPNs). I tried this with decent traffic results, but will it help boost rankings of PBNs?

    Started a small adwords campaign, about $10/day 3 days ago so traffic went up a little bit since then. Really want to rank on 1st page of Google.

    Just add more pbn links, I'd add atleast 1 of each of the top 10 or so web 2.0 site aswell but personally don't like using web 2.0s much. I like using white hat (ish) blog comments a lot aswell, probably don't do much for seo but possibly good to add relevency and they pass me a lot of traffic considering the small amount of time they take me.

    I wouldn't use GSA on a site that you are banking of... maybe for tier 2 links but that's it

    My tip: Give time to time
    Make sure you are not rushing this. Google might take a bit of time to give you a good position. Also try to don't over spend money. The first time i did this I got like 300 dollars in the first month with the difference i spend 1 dollar on the domain and hosting

    That's pretty awesome, did you use 2.0s to rank? :O

    I'm not sure what quality of 2.0s I should be buying. I bought some good ones with decent backlinks I checked myself on Ahrefs, and some worse ones from places like Fiverr/SEOClerks (the ones with some metrics but pretty horrible backlinks)

    Should my tier 2's point to the articles directly on my PBNs or just the home page, also?

    My advice buy 4-5 PBNs every month and drip feed them 1 PBN every week. If you are in medium-high competition this almost always ranks. Don't buy cheap PBN services either make your own (recommended as you are banking from money site) or buy PBN from legit members with low OBL. If you just have to use GSA use them as tier 2-3 links for your PBN. Spread out the anchor tags, buy some web 2.0 creation services and spam LSI keywords, brand kws to diversify your anchor tags. Build No-follow links from good quality blog comments to diversify no-follow:do-follow ratio. That's it and most of all have patience.

    You may already know some of this, but this article is a good start. The goal is not to spam, but to instead focus on building a highly powerful, trusted website that Google sees as a brand, not just another spam site trying to manipulate its beautiful search engine. :)

    Algo? Let's play with you.
    Send some social signals to your PBN/Web2.0 posts, you will be amazed.

    Quick update. Banked $11k now. Traffic is probably not from mainly seo, but rather comments and forum posts.

    I'm hovering between rank 10-13 for two terms and rank 19 for one term so seo isn't bringing much traffic yet, meaning there's a lot of potential.

    Having a hard time finding PBNs to get that are quality. Maybe you guys could recommend a good place to buy PBNs that aren't garbage.

    I got some decent PBNs that I scraped myself but rather buy them if possible. I built probably 40 tumblr and one wordpress.com web 2.0

    Wow. 11k is a lot of money in such a short time. I will be following this thread to see how you can scale that up even more.
