Hello everyone. I'm quite new to IM and to SEO particularly and this is my first attempt at SEO. After a lot of reading on these forums I decided to choose a niche and create a WP blog for it. My keyword has 15k monthly local searches, and 222k overall search results. What I've done so far is -Get hosting and EMD -Install WP -Write 3 unique 300 word articles niche related -Install various plugins such as All-in-one SEO, Google Analytics etc -Submit my website to various SE After about 12 hours of waiting, my site was indexed in Google. Surprisingly, in one of my keywords I'm ranked #3,#4 and #5 overall. On a side note, if someone could explain why Google shows 222k Matches yet only 3 pages, I'd be very grateful. My question is what should I do next. Should I buy fivver gigs to rank it even better? Also I'd like to know what is the best way to start monetizing it, is it Adsense or Geo-targeted CPA offers? I appreciate your help.
