    What is up BHW?

    I'm building 7 new sites for a client of mine. I'll be using Blackhat SEO to get these sites where they belong, the top of the SERPs. I'll be updating this thread a lot. Not even to teach, just to see what you guys have to say about certain things I do :) I'll go into everything I do with quite a bit of detail so if you don't like reading, don't follow this. If you do, subscribe to the thread and I'll keep it updated.

    Thursday, August 25th, 0:00 - Let's get started!

    It's 0:00 and I'm setting up my domains. Changing nameservers and installing wordpress. Every one of these sites will be a wordpress blog with 1 article on it. This means that I only have 1 article to market. Not a lot of content, but it's clear. I'm going to spend some time on installing plugins and tweaking themes. I've told my writer that I need 7 articles and I have sent him the 105$ he needed for it. (He's expensive but very good) One or two articles will be done in a few hours so I need to get the sites online by then. More later!

    Thursday, August 25th, 1:17 - Site one done!

    It's 1:17 and my first site is done design wise. I just got my first article in and I'm posting it now. It's the only article that will go up on the site and it's amazing for SEO, so I'm happy. I need to install analytics on this and then run SEnuke X's indexing tool. I'm not gonna start with SEO until all my sites are online because I want to do them all at the same time. I've now been called 'bro' by another writer which only makes me more happy I hired my guy. It's late so I'm only going to setup one more site tonight, and I'll do the rest tomorrow. Going to find myself some office space in the morning so after that I'll have to setup the 5 other sites. Great.

    Thursday, August 25th, 1:44 - Site two done!

    It's 1:44 and my second site is done design wise. It's much easier to setup another site in the same niche, I just copy my first site and upload that to my FTP. My article is going to take another hour to have created so I have some time to maybe even setup my third site. Actually no, I'll move my other domains to my host first, and then do the rest tomorrow. My new SEO client-to be just came on MSN and he wants to talk about payment details, which I'm always up for. So I'm done for the night.

    Thursday, August 25th, 3:00 - Question answering before I go to bed

    [Q]What do you mean when you say you'll only post 1 article?
    [A]I mean that I'll really only make one page. Only the front page of my site will have content that's actually worth something. I'm considering making an autoblog on a special page but I'm not so sure about that yet. Thoughts?

    [Q]What kind of plugins are you using?
    [A]So far, only AIO SEO. I added a facebook like button, and a twitter button to my sidebar using HTML though.

    [Q]How long are your articles and what kind of keyword density are you going for?
    [A]~500 words, and 4%

    [Q]If you have one page sites don't you think it will have low page weight in search engines?
    [A]Yes, but that one page will be very strong. I only need my site to rank for one site because they're made to help my client. I'll be linking through to my client, or I'll be 301ing my sites to him. I'm not sure about that yet.

    [Q](Not actually a Q yet but it'll come) How will you monetize the site?
    [A]I won't, my client is paying me to build these sites so I can get their site up in the rankings. I was able to snatch the domains early so that helped (my full keywords are in the domain). Maybe I'll flip the domains later when my niche explodes (I'm in a niche that won't go big for a month or two)


    Thursday, August 25th, 10:35 - Getting ready to get to work again!

    I just got back from checking out office space and I'm ready to get back to work. Someone in the replies gave me advice on a couple nice plugins that I'm going to be checking out today. I might also buy and install an auto-SEO plugin. I've never tried them so I might as well do it today. After all that I'm setting up my 5 other sites. A couple of those are in another niche so that'll take a little longer. I've got enough Coke Cherry though, so I'll be fine.


    Thursday, August 25th, 12:51 - Cheap Office Space!

    I just called a company that handles office space in my area and they've got 45 square meters available with electricity for 200 euros a month. That's insanely cheap so I'm going to check that out this afternoon. I'm being too slow on my sites imo, so I'm focussing on those now. Shit's going well though, getting visitors already from my client's site. This is going to be a breeze!
    Oh, and I'm thinking of doing youtube videos, but I'll see about that.

    7 articles for $105? You're crazy bro.

    I can get you 7 high quality articles for $35. I am not talking about just any quality work - I am talking about quality that will match and/or beat the quality of your current writer you paid. If you ever need article writing services, you can give me a PM.

    I've been working with this writer for the past 3 years and he's the best one I've ever used. I'm not going to switch ;)

    It's all good. You would of saved $70 for 7 articles but If you are that man that likes to over spend his money on services and believes you get what you pay for, good for you. Just trying to save a fellow BHW member some $$$ in the long run.

    I'm sure the OP knows what he's doing, no need to patronise and shamelessly promote your services.

    I've subscribed to this post and wish meaculpa the best of luck!

    I do not do any writing services nor am I promoting one. I am just letting the OP know that there are better solutions but If he wants to stick with what he is paying for, that is fine.

    Sometimes you gotta pay to play, if the writer is solid and the niche makes sense financially than the articles are worth every penny.

    Look forward to seeing your results.

    Updated now, getting the hang of building WP sites again. I bet that I'll be sick of WP in a couple days again, but who cares. So far, so good! Also, @ the guy telling me I could save 70$. 105 - 70 = 35$, not 25$. You could've saved me 80$.

    I disagree about that being too much for articles. If they are good then it is worth it IMO. Many disagree with the bounce rate, etc.. having anything to do with rankings but looking at the details in analytics I would absolutely say it makes a difference. Even if it didn't then the longer they stay on your site the more likely they are to click on ad, if they can't comprehend the first 2 sentences then they are just going to leave quickly.

    hello man wish you good luck and i will follow along just got a few questions on your mission.

    When you mean one article for a site? do you include privacy policy, about us etc? or just on post or page with the content on it?

    What kind of plugins are you using?

    How long is your articles and what kind of keyword density
    are you going for?

    If you have one page sites don't you think it will have low page weight in search engines?

    thanks i hope you make this thread long
