Hi Everyone! I thought I would create a thread based on my success so far, although small, and maybe use this as an example to show others that taking action is the key to any success. From there, you can go on and tweak away. I have been online for a couple of years now, and unfortunately in the past, put all my eggs in one basket. I had a successful hair loss blog promoting Provillus through Market Health. Sales were growing each month and was doing great. Traffic increasing each month and was ranked #1 in Google for high search term keyword. I was on the verge of creating my second site when Market Health decided to start shaving all of my sales. I sent numerous complaint emails and in the end just gave up. From there, I decided to start an Offline SEO business, which is now doing pretty well, but is really not what I want to be doing. I outsource most of the work, and get decent results, but I do not want to be glued to a desk answering phones all day and dealing with people who want everything for nothing. I would prefer to have freedom when I want and have multiple streams of income. So I though I would start back into the SEO world with a few niche sites. I have now built 6 sites, all Clickbank products, which are all based on high search term keywords, with medium to high competition. I have not worked too hard on them yet, but I am definitely now motivated after seeing some early potential with them. Each website is built as an authority site. It does not review the products, but instead has "Expert" style articles, leaving the reader missing something. A few text links and product banners, but the theme of the sites is true authority. I use WordPress for each site, with a high quality custom theme. Usually something from themeforest or elegant themes. I don't mind spending 3 days customising a theme to look good, as I want my sites to be of high quality. The sites I have are as follows: (Please note, numbers are not exact to prevent reverse engineering of my sites and products) Site 1: Keyword Global: 40,500 Alexa: 19,400,000 Hops: 302 Sales: 3 Earnings: $94 Site 2: Keyword Global: 673,000 Alexa: 13,000,000 Hops: N/A Sales: 2 Earnings: $60 Site 3: Keyword Global: 49,500 Alexa: 05,700,000 Hops: 257 Sales: 2 Earnings: $91 Site 4: Keyword Global: 246,000 Alexa: 29,000,000 Hops: 53 Sales: 1 Earnings: $45 Site 5: Keyword Global: 1,830,000 Alexa: 15,000,000 Hops: 256 Sales: 0 Earnings: $0 Site 6: Keyword Global: 49,500 Alexa: 26,000,000 Hops: 80 Sales: 0 Earnings: $0 As you can see above, Alexa rankings are very poor, but as these sites are only 1 - 1.5 months old, with very minimal content and no backlinking, I think that at least 5 of the above sites all have potential. Please note, I am not just targeting the keywords listed above. I have compiled a very large list of LSI keywords for each with much smaller search volume. Once these are ranked for, I will move onto the larger keywords. Also, although these keywords have high search terms, they are not the hardest of competition. I have been able to rank keywords similar on first page both for my hair loss site and for various customers. When doing keyword research, in my opinion, don't just choose a keyword because Google Keyword tool says it has low competition. I do not look at number of competing sites either. The only thing I look at is the quality of the first page results. Is the keyword string together? Are the sites of authority? If so are they a threat? Does the Search Engine site descriptions have a good click through call to action? Are the sites listed actually targeting the key phrase? If you can get past these steps, you have found a golden keyword. I now have a list of another 12 domains/keywords which I own, all of which I will be creating authority sites on. I am happy to show my plan of action and plugin I use if people are interested. I can create a separate post for that? It is nothing new, just well organised and simple. Just takes time to implement. I hope that I can get some feedback from some of the "Big Boys" on this site, as I am really wanting to hit the $500+ per day mark as soon as possible. I am not wanting to do anything BH, or use any automated tools, other than basic Web2.0 tools and am looking at doing more simple high authority manual back linking. So any suggestions from top SEO guys would be great. I would like my back linking to look natural in eyes of G. Anyway, I better get back to work. Thanks for reading and looking forward to your feedback.
