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.
