    I have a informational/article based site in the Student Loan & College Grant niche that I started about 2 months ago. I currently have 9 100% unique published articles on the site and I believe 7 or 8 out of those 9 are on the first page of Google so it's doing pretty well. The most recent article I published was just 5 days ago and it's already ranking #5 with 5,400 Exact Local Monthly Searches (USA) with a CPC of $3+ and this is with no links built to it so I think it's safe to assume that creating high quality content is doing the trick. What I find funny though is that currently, the site has been averaging about 65-100 uniques per day and on SEM Rush, it's saying my SE Traffic cost is $119,000 with over 1,200 keywords in Google. This is a site that's only two months old and I'm the first person to register the domain so there's no history prior to me registering this domain. Currently, the site has a PR 0 though I feel it will go up once the update is completely rolled out but am very surprised to see how quick this site is progressing.

    With that said, I think that it's safe to assume that Google might be shifting their focus just a tad away from links and more so on high quality content that they think their users will find useful. As they stated multiple times, they're looking to improve their user experience and so they have! When I started to build this site, I was looking to take my time to build a quality authority site and to take it slow and the patience has proven to be key to one of the paths of building a successful site. I just wanted to share this with everyone as I think the more knowledge and information we all put out there for us all to analyze the better decisions we can all make with our own sites and I hope this post was helpful to you. Thanks for reading and I look forward to any questions or comments you may have! :)

    Announcing your niche and earnings in a public forum is not wise. You may wake up tomorrow morning with 100 new competitors. :) And yes, there are plenty of money hungry people around here that are up to the challenge.

    Thanks for the input and I don't mean to get off topic but I'm just curious. How did you come up with your user name?

    I'm not too worried about it. I have a list of over 800 keywords in this niche to target so I'm not worried about others competing with me. Trust me though I know there's a lot of people that are "Up to the challenge", everybody is wanting to make $!

    Google can't differentiate between high quality content vs low quality spun content ...
    It's been proven 100 times. The only thing that matters is uniqueness.

    If uniqueness matters than how is high quality content not differentiated from low quality spun content?

    No I didn't buy the articles I wrote them myself. It takes some time to write them because of the niche and because there's some research involved. I usually outsource my articles but since I was looking to build an authority site I wanted to write them content myself to ensure the quality was at the standards that I wanted for the site.

    Not directly, although it can tell by various measures (time on site, bounce rate etc) whether your visitors find the content high quality.

    However, in 5 days there's no way they will have worked out that the content is high quality via any means, unless using a manual review.

    Sorry I'm not posting or giving the link to my site out publicly. I don't think that'd be smart :)

    Damn, 5 days and ranking. I added content to my site 4 days ago and assumed it would take 12 days to get to page 1 w/o backlinks for the long-tail keywords I'm indirectly targeting...maybe I'll wake up tomorrow with a nice surprise ;) (but I'm not anticipating it).

    What's the quality of the backlinks that do point to your site? Like do you have links from authority sites or did you build your links manually with BH tools?

    I do have some links from authority sites but I have a lot of links from Web 2.0 sites and I also have a lot of Forum Profile links and Wiki Links. I did build around 20-30 manual PR3+ links to the site which has helped as every article that I've published is ranking pretty quickly so the results have been pretty good. I can't wait for the PR to update! I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of authority this site will be given as it's only a couple of months old so if it does well it will show that the techniques used on this site will work good for other sites.

    Many free services can automatically detect grammatical errors, spelling errors, styling, etc. If such FREE services can do that, can't Google with all its resources check for that to differentiate between high quality articles and crap spun articles? Add to that the ability to detect bounce rate, time on site, etc. And you can get an idea about the simplest principles of how Google can differentiate between low and high quality content.
    Congrats OP, keep posting high quality content and backlinks and you should earn some serious money from that site.

    Thanks I appreciate it. I'll definitely continue to only use high quality unique content as it's been working so far and wouldn't want to jeopardize what the site has achieved so far. I'm a firm believer that quality content and quality links is key to good rankings and I simply follow what I know works.

    Are you using adsense or CPA to monetize your traffic?
