    Hey there,

    I have a few journeys here about my YouTube channel but I guess there's not much to post without revealing my channel so that will be on hold for now.

    Last time I did SEO was in 2013 and made $xx,xxx from it on a Blackhat site. (this was at the age of 13-14)

    This time I'll be taking you through my SEO journey in general in terms of my new niche site. It's kind-of a general niche site though so it's not 1 specific product (it would be a "buy camera accessories" site rather than just a "buy tripods" site.

    Current assets:
    My vast knowledge and ego in other subjects
    Scrapebox
    GSA Search Engine Ranker
    GSA Captcha Breaker
    2 PBN domains
    10 expired Tumblr blogs
    3 articles for my website

    Game plan:
    1. Build a Wordpress site
    2. Silo the site & set up all the compensation disclosure, terms of service etc.
    3. Drip feed articles for one month
    4. Begin backlinking process with profile links from almost anywhere I can get (SoundCloud/Reddit, etc.)
    5. Build web 2.0s (guys and gals please help me with this one, I need more than just Tumblrs, I have no idea which others to use)
    6. Build PBNs to it
    7. Rank first page for desired keywords
    8. Repeat until I have tons of sites

    Please remember, I am a newbie, so ANY advice is appreciated. I want to create passive income while I build my YouTube channel as I'd like that to be the main source of income.

    I guess I forgot to include in the main post, the goal is around $x,xxx per month off this site and around a grand off low niche sites

    I see there are still no posts so this must be too boring.

    Haven't had much time today because I have a huge chemistry project, but let's dive into the specifics:

    I guess I'll go in depth
    PBN domain 1: DA 16 PA 29 TF 15 CF 12
    PBN domain 2: DA 12 PA 27 TF 0 CF 21
    PBN domain 3: DA 16 PA 30 TF 13 CF 19 (bought today :D)

    Making new accounts for: (probably going to do this during weekend, actually)
    Wikidot - Reddit - Tumblr - Pinterest - Twitter - Wordpress - Blog.com - Yolasite - Page.tl - Weebly

    I plan on getting backlinks from all those places eventually. I have a few back when I thought I was going to do social media automation but I'm not really in the mood for that as it's too unpredictable (accounts can be banned at any time)

    I scanned my list of existing Tumblrs and I see that they are all PA 1 now, which is sad sad sad. So I'll only be registering ones with big backlink properties in the future (from outside of Tumblr).

    No content written today but my Natasha Nixon article came through and it is exceptional. It was late by a few days but they added an extra 150 words (either they're nice, or it was to make up for it). Enjoyed it, and I think it will be good.

    Also discovered that the domain I registered for my money site has a bunch of backlinks that are there by mistake for 5+ years (misspelling of the domain they wanted to link to), thought that was pretty hilarious. This is 10+ backlinks I'm talking about lol, which is probably why my money site already has a PA of over 20.

    I'll follow your journey. Pretty sure more will do the same when times goes by, don't worry about it.

    And i think it's really interesting when a youngster is doing this.

    Keep it up & good luck!

    Not much work done today as I was writing a chemistry paper, but:

    Bought a public proxy list, permanently, to use for Scrapebox! Cost me $25 from HideMyAss. This is going to help me scrape Web 2.0s and register them later. The goal is to have everything automated. Press a button, boom, come back from school, ready to do stuff on the website.

    Did a lot of research today and started scraping web 2.0s:

    I noticed....

    PA is useless, I should instead look at the backlinks coming from outside-of-Tumblr domains. This means not using the Tumblr CMS or directly linking to the page, with do - follow.

    Edit:
    L O L are you fucking kidding me I was checking out a domain to buy as PBN and by the time I was done checking TF/DA/PA/backlinks/archive someone else bought it. TF 13 CF 21 DA 14 PA 26 with no spam. Domain from 1998 with PR 2.

    Edit2:
    What's up with Japanese fuckers buying domains and spamming the shit out of them??

    EDIT 3:
    Bought one PBN domain today: DA 17 PA 30 TF 7 CF 22 PR 0

    and registered a Tumblr with pretty good metrics, let's just say PA 34.

    PBN count: 4
    Web 2.0 count: 1

    EDIT 4:
    Bought another domain DA 12 PA 25 TF 12 CF 24
    and I will be using a DA 1 PA 1 CF 1 TF 1 domain spammed with 301 redirects as part of my pbn also just to test how it goes

    PBN count: 6
    Web 2.0 count: 1

    EDIT 5:
    I registered a SICK tumblr with over 150 referring domains to it .... muahaha.

    I set up the site on my DigitalOcean droplet, it was so hard to set up. It's currently not working as I don't know how to do it properly, but they should respond to my support ticket. Today was a really good day, found some nice tumblrs and domains.

    Ok so after an exhausting day of trying to get my new site set up the VPS is ready. I put in so much effort and its finally 3am and I'm done. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I'll have an article up after the theme and onpage opyimozation is all done. I am also scraping new things every day.

    My endgoal is to be able to create such a network where I can just press a button and get money in my bank account ...

    Today I didn't do as much as yesterday, because today was my break day where I played Call of Duty Zombies.

    However, what I did do:

    Put in a Compensation Disclosure, Privacy Policy, Contact Form and set them all to noindex.
    Found a banner for my site and uploaded it + photoshopped my logo on top of it.
    Scouted a competitors site, seems like he either has extremely good natural ranking or a hidden PBN.
    Published the first article! :D
    Redirected IP and non-www domains to www


    To-do list for tomorrow and the upcoming days:
    Set meta-description and keywords and tags etc correctly
    Install Google analytics
    Add an "Addthis" plugin or some auto-share bs
    Set up "Page Cache Test (Server Side Caching)"
    Set up Image Expires Tag
    JS and CSS minification
    Turn off Server Signature
    Libwww-perl Access - turn off

    I am using:
    http://seositecheckup.com
    http://gtmetrix.com

    The goal right now is for the site to be fully, 100%, optimized on the internal end, so I can get right to building backlinks without the worry of "what if my onpage isn't good enough"

    Set up Image Expires Tag

    Turn off Server Signature
    Libwww-perl Access - turn off
    Microdata Schema
    SPF field

    I'm really badly trying to get all of this stuff done today, and some of the stuff I'm really having trouble with.

    Trying to get as close to 100% on http://seositecheckup.com and get a page loading speed of 0.5 seconds.

    Edit: just checked and I'm page 8 for a keyword (my 'tags' page lol)

    I'm gonna lay off the onpage optimization for now, the only thing I'm gonna continue doing is adding a CDN and server caching as I want to get my pageload time to 0.5 seconds. It's going to be hard but I can do it.

    EDIT: I finally started using CloudFlare. I'll wait 3 days before testing again as it takes long for DNS to update.


    The next step is to optimize my article for keywords and add in those valuable cloaked Amazon EasyAzon affiliate links.

    EDIT: Updated and added aff links & updated for keywords.


    After that I will also be making profile links, but I don't know how long thatll take as school just gave me a huge workload.


    DONE: Posted on my first web 2.0 today, made 10 link shorteners to those and bought 75,000 backlinks to those on Fiverr.

    Q: Which (free) rank tracker should I use?

    Made some small changes to the site

    MASSIVE TIP:

    Noindex your category and tag pages on wordpress.


    It's SO useful.

    Question:
    Which rank tracker is the best to use?

    Damn Daniel,

    My tag page is ranked on page 3 with no backlinks to it. Even after I noindexed it lol.

    I just want my article to be ranked. Next week is march break for me and I will have tons of time to write content and publish it. I will also be building up my network.

    Current size:
    6 domains
    6 PA30+ expired web 2.0s (all have more than 10 links pointing to them, except for 1 that has one link pointing to it from a DA80+ PA50+ page

    So:

    My website started popping up on the third page for a lot of stuff. This is good. And all with just one mega powerful dofol low link built as well as some profiles. This is how I'm going to be doing it, purely through POWERFUL links, no spam.

    Next step is to post more money articles. Right now I'm just posting 500-word filler articles to make my site bigger

    Posted two more articles but they are like 500 words each.

    My article that I'm trying to rank is 700 words long. Is that too short for a product review? Do I need to lengthen it?

    Love that I just found this! I'm going through the same stage in my site as you are. Though I have to admit, you're doing some awesome SEO work already and I'm kind of slacking a little bit. I'll be following for more motivation!

    Thanks a lot appreciate the kind words. I'm going slowly and surely for this one because my past churn and burn projects haven't worked out well.
