First, wish you all the best for 2013. Don't stop dreaming, set goals, fight for them, take action and never give up.. eventualy all your dreams and goals will be achieved, sooner or later. This year I am going big... I hope this thread help some of you and also give me motivation for my goal. All my traffic comes from search engines, mainly google and youtube. And my goal is to start banking $1000 per week. I realy believe I can do this in 2013, but if things dont work as expected I won't give up and I will continue fighting and working until my goal is achieved. I am here to tell you a little bit of my story, give you some tips that might help you, and also learn with you guys like I have learning for long time - I am not a guru or anything like that but I do know a few things on how to get organic traffic. That being said, suggestions and criticize are always welcome LAME DISCLAIMER: This works for me. I am not, in any way, saying will work for you. However, if you follow my tips, start thinking outside of the box, RESEARCH and finaly TEST and implement the shit out of it then there is a good chance this will work for you too. And to make your job even easier, I will link to a few tools and services that I use on a daily basis. I love this forum period. It's the only forum I visit this days, rarely but I still do it... Its time to give something back to BlackHatWorld. Why do I read this so many times in this forum?.....I realy think I owe a lot to this forum. Not only for the awesome people I met here but also for the things I learned - this forum is a completely brainstorm BY IT SELF...anyone who start reading BHW imediatly start to think about making money, unless you dont like/need money at all. I am going to tell you what was pushing me back on scaling my stuff from xx to 100+ a day. Making money online is not easy... You start making money on twitter, then twitter rises spam filters; same happened with comment rating on youtube; probably same shit happening on instagram, pinterest, etc... This is probably the reason why I love doing SEO so much tho. We all remember the days of ranking sites with ONE link-wheel using senuke right??? We all miss the days of ranking stuff with 1000s blog comments..... However, if that motivates you think about the people that completely lost everything and simple gave up..how many people do you think that stop doing SEO after latest google updates? Think about the huge amount of competition that desapear overnight....how many doors were opened for the ones who keep fighting? Ranking stuff in google is not for the average joe anymore thats for sure. However, I am here to tell you this: SPAMMING STILL WORKS PERIOD. I am kinda sick of misunderstanding info floating around this forum. You don't need xpto content to rank. I am not saying it works all the time and I am not saying it is SAFE. But it is faster and easy for sure to spin some content and spam the shit out of it. What I also know for sure is that I will never follow google TOS - that being said, if you think you are safe from next google updates just because you think you are doing white hat by building quality xpto backlinks, you are wrong. You are SAFER than me thats true but you are NEVER 100% safe from the evil big G. This is my honest advice for the newbies, unless you are doing SEO for a company or something like that, split your eggs and GO BLACK HAT!!!! Back to the topic...I was talking about what was pushing me away on scaling from xx to 100+ a day. These two thing, (1) keyword difficulty and (2) keyword OCI 1) as far as i know, organic traffic is the best you can get online because it is highly targeted source of traffic. You dont need to rank for highly trafiqued keywords. IMO we should always try to rank for the small keywords at first. This was one of my mistakes. I was trying to target high traffiqued keywords (~1k is high for me btw) and normaly high trafiqued keywords are not easy keywords to rank for. There is one tool I use to automate PART of my keyword research - I strongly believe keyword research is crucial step on doing SEO. It is called Ultimate Niche Finder and It basicaly automate google keyword tool. You should also use something else to automate google suggests...when you are searching something in google when you are typing using your keyboard google search box will automately shows you related words - that feature is priceless to find these super easy long tail keywords that sometimes even your competititors are not targeting. Ultimate Niche Finder http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...off-free-lifetime-uniches-com-membership.html I will talk about more of this in Part 2. Lets move on... Instead of writing an article targeting a big keyword, I just write a ~1000 words article targeting 5-6 smaller keywords which sometimes only have 100 monthy searches....And if you do it right you can even target MORE keywords. You only need to write the keyword at least ONE time in your article, and backlinks will do the rest. By the way, another tip I can give you: dont write all the keywords you are targeting many times and instead of looking spammy for your website users and probably also to google tho, you should grab a dictionary and use synonyms in your articles - synonyms of the keywords you are targeting. Plus a few LSI related keywords so it is a solid niche article. I also bold keywords but not only the keywords, I bold full sentenses with my keywords on it. H1, H2, H3 are very important and make your articles look better IMO. Remember this too, TEXT is not the only one type of content you can use in your website - use MANY videos and images in your webpages. Another on-page tip I can give you is that, when you are building backlinks to your webpages, you should update your posts with new comments. Trust me, it does help...google bot comes to your website many times specialy when you are spamming it LOL, if you update your blogposts with new comments, thats positive I guess. And you should sometimes also link to authority sources. If you are worry about your domain PR, you can do it using comments section (no-follow)... But dont link to your competitors websites tho!!! 2) Now talking about OCI, I am not sure what it realy means but I think it is something about commercial value for the keyword. Examples: Where to buy cheap headphones best sexy dolls for sale Also make sure you pick niches that PAY well =) Okay, lets move forward. You need tools period. But you also need your hands for a few things tho. I use many tools but the most important ones are GSA Search Engine Ranker and Scrapebox. For real, this days I only use GSA 24/7 and its the only tool you need to rank your sites. Believe it or not... But you can also use some other stuff such as senukex, sick submitter, ultimate demon, magic submitter, rank whizz (pdf submission) Scrapebox can be very useful for many many things but I mainly use it to scrape new backlink sources. Footprints http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...gine-optimization-footprints-collections.html (thanks gtreeoutsourcing) Scrapebox http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...scraper-auto-blog-commenter-prstorm-mode.html I also use scrapebox to scrape and post comments to blogs related to my niche campaigns. Just be careful on posting to moderated blogs because of akismet - do it wisely. I also use scrapebox to blast my tier 2 links. Becareful here too and dont submit your backlinks (even your tier 2 backlinks) on HIGH OBL PAGES (max. 40 for me...) I like this service from BHW member memme http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...h-google-page-ranking-low-obl-ultra-fast.html Now lets talk a little bit about GSA... I do use GSA directly to link to my domains but I only do it sometimes mainly because GSA if used right (or wrong) way can build 1000s backlinks to your website on a single day - depending in your campaign setup and server. I recommend you to use these famous "buffer/parasite" properties... Create a squidoo lens. Create blogspots and wordpress blogs. Use youtube/vimeo/dailymotion videos. FB pages etc etc... Yes, I do spam my fan pages lol and guess wat? It works xD It is much safer to link spam on high pr properties, comparing to do it in a brand new site. Plus, if you do it right, you actualy RANK these properties. So you are killing 2 birds with one shot nawmsayin^^ I do spam search engines however I believe I do it in a smart way. I always try to avoid footprints and SPAM patterns in my campaigns. Probably the most important is content surrounding your backlinks. But like I said, that does not necessary means you need xpto content. So lets start from there. As far as I know, google is a bot not a human so you dont need native english teacher perfect-grammar wtv content... What you do need this days is UNIQUE and RELEVANT content in your backlinking campaigns. So this is how I deal with content before using it in my backlinking campaigns. I just go to ezine or go articles and grab as many articles as I can related to my niche and if possible keyword related too. Then I pick random sentenses from each one of the articles. Finaly I mix them and create a huge spun article. The last step is running TBS or spinner chief. If you do it right, all your articles in your campaigns will have a big % of uniqueness. They are not readable for sure but who cares......in the end we make money and thats what matters I will run GSA 24/7 without even touch it, all I do once a week or so is changeing my spun article... If you setup 10 of these campaigns a day, how many you are promoting at the end of the month? Just do the math eheh. Some will rank and stick, some will rank and desapear, others wont even rank at all...who cares??? I only care about the ones that rank and stick!! For the first tier on GSA I *MAINLY* use "Articles", "Social Bookmarks" and "Social Networks". For the second tier I personaly avoid videos, documents, trackbacks and directories. Make sure you setup rules in your email account. Forward all emails that go to spam folder into INBOX. This is important and will make your success rate go higher. do follow +80% at least for tier 1 About anchor texts try to use 50% of urls and domain name. The others 50% you can use anchors with keywords but use many long tails, synonyms and short sentenses with your keywords on it. I strongly recommend you to get your hands on Captcha Sniper.. Will save you money OR brain cells (in case ur doing it manualy) http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...niper-your-auto-captcha-solving-software.html During the next couple of weeks I will research quite a lot of niches I want to get into. Basicaly I will organize all my campaigns that I will be promoting till June. Why June? Well I just hope that in June my goal is achieved so I am able to turn off my PC (yes it is ON 24/7!!!) and grab my backpack to go into these holidays that I wish to enjoy for so long longgggg longgggggggggggggg time.... Success is not about the amount of money you can make, but the amount of your self you can sacrifice. Keep tuned for the next threads where I am going to explain more deeply about all the stages of my journey: (Part 2) Jan -> Keyword research, competition analyses, etc (Part 3) Feb -> Setup money sites (landing pages or fake blogs) - logos, content, on page seo, social accounts and monetization methods (Part 4) Mar -> Link building campaigns Feel free to ask questions and post suggestions please. Thanks BlackHatWorld and all the best for 2013!
