    Hi guys,

    Did a little bit of a case study, decided that information is best shared, hope you can learn something from it. The more we document these kinds of things, the better! I have found similar threads invaluable in my quest for google domination. Now its my time to share some information.

    My goal : Rank #1 for popular Dutch tv show.


    About 6 weeks ago, a popular jersey shore style TV show was released in my home-country : Holland . I only discovered after 2 weeks what succes the show had been and to my disbelief the local IM'ers had already registered the .com .net .info .org and .nl domains. The top 10 was dominated by huge media sites with index counts of over 10mil+ Domain ages of 10 years and mixed in with those were my competitors that were all trying to get their share of the cake.

    The funny thing is... all of the IM websites were 100% white hat. Manual commenting on related news sites / social media traffic.

    Now the interesting thing is... I didn't register a domain, I used a subdomain on a site I've had for about 8 months with about 1000 backlinks.
    (everything on the domain is completely unrelated)
    I decided to put my blog on full autopilot, 1 post every 3 hours, all scraped from youtube for the same keyword. Then just whack my site with as many dripfeedblasts backlinks (xrumur service) as possible. I also did about 5 hours of manual commenting on sites that I scraped from scrapebox, most of them were unrelated.
    I only have one adsense account and because my competitors are all IM'ers I was scared of someone 'snitching' me to google and then losing my account.



    At first nothing happened

    Then slowly, traffic started to drip in from wikipedia (i sneaked a link in there) and some of the blogs where I had commented.

    after about 5-7 days, lots of my pages were getting indexed.

    at the start of week 2 I started getting my first organic traffic, mostly for the really long term keywords.

    Then some kind of explosion happened, last thursday, directly after the new episode aired, I was ranking #1 (checked from multiple pc's and ip's ) for only a few hours. I was even ranking higher than the official site on the tv network.

    Now, 2 days later, market samurai has my index count as '0'
    Market Samurai says landing page is indexed, but not ranked in top-1000
    Google webmaster-tools still sees my pages as indexed
    I do not appear in the search results untill page 9 after manual search.
    Still receiving a tiny bit of traffic today, all from the 'main' keyword search.

    This leads me to believe that I am experiencing what some people refer to as the 'Google Dance'. I will continue to build links and tonight I will ping/login to lots of my forum-backlink profiles.

    I also took my blog off autopilot, I heard this can speed up the 'dancing' and I have a huge index count now (300+) I will probably add pages, and focus on getting some very high keyword density pages going. I will keep you guys updated.

    Here are some screenshots of blackhat-madness :

    Dude, I just went through the same thing. It's a killer! I'm not sure why but it was also with a TV site. For the search term "stream xxx" I went from position 4 to 370, and for the term "Watch xxx" I went from 20 to 332" "freestream" 1 to 238".

    Needless to say I was freaking out. Now I'm just pissed. All the links built were manually done, over 4 weeks to get ranking and I'm not de-indexed so it's not the sandbox...I guess it's the Google dance.

    So since Monday I have been article writing, creating forum profiles, etc and I've moved up a bit in each category, but when I look at the other sites that are ahead of me, it just pisses me off.

    The best advice I got, was not to think about it, and don't check everyday - which is easier said then done. Of course I have a bunch of Non-TV related stuff going as well, but it was a significant contributor to my daily take.

    Post and update when you get back to the first page, it will be interesting to see if your methods make it back before mine.....6 days and still counting for me.

    I am literally going through the keywords my site is ranking for in webmaster tools and then creating/modifying my pages to suit those keywords. Also double checking everything in the adwords traffic checker to maximize the amount of high traffic longtails I can get.

    My site also doesn't have any navigation on the top of the screen yet lol... Time to get moving

    This is a great post. For a newcomer such as myself it's great to see first hand what the issues are that even the seasoned pros experience.

    Please keep us updated as to how you progress.
