I've been interested in learning SEO for quite some time. I've read literally hundreds of tutorials, answers, and even journey threads. The only part missing is taking action and applying everything learned. Resources I have gained most knowledge from: Keyword Research & on-site SEO PhpBuilt - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ization-guide-2015-remove-penalties-rank.html BTB - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/white-hat-seo/333317-keyword-research-btb-way.html SEO BTB - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...60-days-60-keywords-my-small-site-method.html LightningBlitz - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/781273-how-rank-quick-guide-newbies.html Hekke - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...792757-hekkes-niche-site-journey-200-day.html TurkishDelight - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...arch-engine-optimization-journey-750-day.html Zobban - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-6k-month-zobbs-amazon-affiliate-journey.html I'm going to create a niche/authority site which is quite broad in nature. I plan to review products & create posts around the product niche that have buyer intent. I don't like the idea of having a one-dimensional website (just a review site for example) as I feel that creating a well-rounded website that provides additional value is more beneficial. Thus, the site will include: Product reviews Information around the sub-niche (with buyer intent) I plan on doing 1 product review with 10-20 blog posts around the product/sub-niche How will I monetize my website? I plan to monetize the website with clickbank. I will eventually test with CPA and CJ. How Will I Be Doing Keyword Research? Longtail Pro + Platinum - Find longtails with competition below 30 What is my SEO strategy?

Genesis Framework + Genesis child theme How will I be tracking my keywords? Serpbook The goal is simple, work my ass off and rank for as many keywords as I can. Check back after 30 days, and if not ranking, work on SEO some more (either more web 2.0s or PBN posts and change around the anchor texts). Ideal Standards: 1 Post a day and 10+ web 2.0's created per day Realistic Standards: 5 Posts Per Week and 50 Web 2.0's created per week. Time to get to work.
