    Introduction
    - I'm new to SEO, although I wrote "detailed seo techniques". Sorry for that.
    - For me, the word "new" means no practical experience, and it doesn't matter how many books, articles and courses you've read.

    -I've never done a serious SEO before because I think it is too slow ranking a site.
    - And I read terrible SEO journey, in which the OP failed miserably. He did keep up with his journey and update daily. Therefore, PLEASE DO give useful advises. Thanks in advance.

    -Now I decided to commit to SEO once again. After trying many other methods, SEO is long-term and worth the effort.

    Niche selection
    - people are desperate in this niche.
    - the niche is not very narrow tho. I decided to do this niche b/c I've found a few keywords that have high search volume (8k/month) and the competition is easy - medium.

    Keyword Research
    - I focused on finding long tail keywords (LTK), which have high search volume yet little competition. "How to lose weight quickly and naturally" is a LTK. However, it got a lot of competition. "How to cure this or that naturally or that that" is a LTK, however it gets little search volume.

    Keyword research - checking competition
    - There're two home pages (www.yoursite.com/) on the first page. This is bad b/c it means more competition. The good thing is that there are no exact matched nor closely matched keywords in the titles or descriptions. The two sites look spammy with at most 1-3 pages.

    - There are two sites which have the exact matched KW in their titles. However , they got only 20-30 backlinks.
    - There's another site that has KW in title and description on page 3. However it got penalized b/c it has thousands of backlinks to a single inner page... It looks unnatural.


    Site setup
    -WP with Divi
    -All in one SEO tools , just to create a sitemap
    - 3 unique articles manually written
    - used SEO power suite to check my site's on-page optimization score.
    -Since I'm displaying 3 full articles on my home page, I wanna make sure my density is below 4% and close to 3%.
    - Will add more articles but not daily.

    subscribed to Domain Hunter Gatherer
    -I used paid public proxies to scrape. However it's too slow! I'm not sure if I should use my private proxies b/c I heard that google bans them fast.
    -It took hours to get only some expired web 2 domains. I found it hard to find expired web 2 domains that have a lot of backlinks. I think I'll just go with the domains that are oldest with high PR?

    Web 2 accounts creations and IP problems!

    Make sure WebRTC is disabled, or it's meaningless to use proxies. WebRTC works with javascript to provide some browser related functionalities. However, it will reveal your real ip.
    Use Browserleaks 's WebRTC to check if you real ip is exposed. BTW, Chrome's WebRTC prevent plugin isn't working. Firefox's is working!

    ------------------------- - I'm currently at here-------------------------
    NEXT STEPS
    Create web 2 accounts
    Blast with GSA for diversified links

    To Be Continued....

    2nd Update
    I worked only 1-2 hours on this today.

    GSA setup
    Blasted 300 urls with GSA and got only a few verified urls, which are enough.
    Created 3 web 2 pages from expired domains and linked to my money site.

    I don't want to derail your journey here but using public proxies with Domain Hunter Gatherer you will be losing potential Web2.0 accounts. Obviously using private proxies for searching Google could get your IP blocked in Google but they will only be blocked temporarily and you will likely get more results in less time.

    I'll not post further here as this is your thread but if you want any advice about it just let me know either in my thread for DHG, PM or support ticket in the members area.

    Best of luck on your journey, I hope it goes well for you.

    Thanks for the advice. And it's fine here since you're offering good tips.

    I think Google shows only 1,000 listings for a single search. But I haven't figured after how many listings will Google start giving you captchas and block.
