    Looks more like a journey than any kind of case study.

    Okay latest update (work completed today).

    Hosted site (cheap dollar hosting) and installed WP, then changed theme to Pinboard (Pinterest style theme). Added a short About Me page with profile picture and added a Contact page. Installed 404 redirection plugin to capture link juice from old pages.

    Next I wanted to fill the site out a bit more with scraped content before adding the actual "money" posts. So I used Get ArticlesLite to scrape niche articles then chose 5 relevant articles and spun at 3rd word level using BestFreeSpinner. Checked 100% uniqueness using smallseotools plagiarism checker. Articles were quite readable.

    Posted 5 posts to site. Included image for each post (with keyword alt tag). Added a relevant YouTube video to the first post. Installed Google Video Sitemap plugin and pinged Google (to try to get site indexed faster) - post with video indexed in under 2 hours!
    Added Pinterest Pin It Button plug in to allow easy repin of images.

    Next step is to choose 10 product target keywords and start to write "money" posts.

    Following. I tried using Pinterest to generate traffic some time back but failed miserably (very few clicks and 0 conversions even though I was offering demographic-appropriate products).

    Hope you do better than me :)
