    I have read a lot over the past couple days and I am so excited to get started. I won't expect to make a dollar, a thousand dollars, not even a million bucks in the first month or so. But I am mentally prepared! Ready to learn from my mistakes, etc.

    So here I put together all my questions:

    1. What is Tier 2 and Tier 3 links and what are they good for; how to get such links on fiverr?
    2. What are proxies and a VPS needed for?
    3. Where do I source top quality article writers? Can I submit 50-100 quality unique articles in one day or should I spread it over a few months? what is the effect of each?
    4. can you give me 3 examples of niches and 3 examples of microniches?
    5. I am 100% noob. How do I beat competition by other IM/SEOers (like you) who are in this industry for years and decades with the latest Blackhat techniques and secrets?
    6. If I go for Weight Loss Tips, how much investment money am I looking at to get it to the top 10?
    7. What is the ideal monthly investment in SEO (backlinks and articles, anything else?) for medium competition keywords? (in any niche)
    8. How to do a keyword/competitor research? Just use google keyword tool to find the most related keywords to that niche and then type in those keywords in Google search and see which sites rank first?
    9. How do I drive traffic to my site? Do I have to buy traffic or will it come directly from organic search when my site ranks?
    10. How long will it take before my site ranks? (white-hat SEO only)
    11. Aside from the below, what else do I need to do to rank my site and monetize it:
    - evergreen niche
    - brandable/keyword domain
    - hosting
    - cool custom wordpress theme with some nice plugins
    - 50 articles (with links to high commission clickbank products)
    - 10 high PR same-niche backlinks
    - 2-3 display ads on side bar
    - Pinterest pins/Facebook shares/Twitter tweets
    - Traffic

    Last but not least, how do I manage and maintain multiple sites (like 10), any popular software/tools?
    And finally, what are the most important guidelines to follow in order to avoid getting banned/deindexed from Google SERP/Adwords?

    Sorry for digging.

    You're all over the place there. Keep reading a bit more....I don't think anyone is going to spoon feed you the answer to a dozen questions that are either very basic or are of the 'how long is a piece of string' variety.

    As seankearns points out, you have a lot going on here. Someone could literally write pages and pages answering your questions. I will however give you a few pieces of information.

    One thing that will be imperative for your initial success is how you do your keyword research. Using a tool like the Google Keyword tool is a great first step but you should really go beyond that to determine which keyword terms/phrases to go after.

    Here are two methods you should learn more about,

    Quantitative Methods
    Aside from market indicators and relevance of certain keywords to your website, there are also quantitative methods that may shed more light on which keywords are the best for you to be using. Two of the most popular quantitative methods are KEI (Keyword Effectiveness Index) and the R/S or results to searches ratio.
    The Keyword Effectiveness Index measures the demand of a particular keyword phrase against the number of web pages that use it in their copy. Demand for any given keyword is further broken down into a daily amount or in other words, the daily global searches for the keyword.
    The formula is expressed as ((MS/30)) ^ 2/C where MS represents monthly searches and C represents competition. Monthly searches are first divided by 30 or MS/30. That number is then squared or multiplied by itself and then divided by whatever the competition is.
    For example if the monthly global searches for "cell phones" were 30,000 we would divide this number by 30 which would give us 1,000 daily searches. Squaring this number gives us 1,000,000. Say our competition for this phrase is 2 million web pages. 1,000,000/2,000,000 = 0.5 or the KEI ratio for this keyword phrase.
    So what the heck does that tell you?
    KEI Ratios can be interpreted as such,
    < 0.001 = ineffective keyword
    0.001-0.010 = A Good Keyword
    0.010-0.100+ = A Fantastic Keyword
    R/S Ratio
    The results to searches ratio is not as popular as the KEI method however it can still shed light on how competitive a keyword is. For any given keyword phrase you simply take the number of global monthly searches (or local if you are targeting local traffic) and divide it by the number of results returned to you by a search engine for that phrase (searching for non-exact match terms). In general, an R/S ratio of 500 or below with corresponding competition results of a million or less is a good keyword to target. There are however some ambiguities with this method. For example by searching non-exact match phrases, you get tons of results that may not contain the specific phrase but pieces of that phrase. This method (as well as KEI) may also exclude terms that you want to try ranking for anyway because they are a crucial part of your business.
    So that should get you started on one of your questions.

    Try looking around SEOMoz, they have a ton of great info,

    Hope that helps you,

    Extremely helpful information, going to use Excel a lot for making KEI and R/S tables
    But I am just wondering there are so many SEO sharks and whales out there and I am a tiny plankton in this vast IM ocean; they already cover any niche/micro micro/supermicro niche I can think of and they know how to rank it better than me, so what guarantees my success? Is there point to even start learning SEO at age 21 or should I focus on education, job or offline projects?
