    Hi all.

    What a great site, but damn is it confusing :confused: there is just so much stuff here i dont really know where to start.

    A little history about me :)

    I have a music production website where i sell video tutorials. The site is pretty new although i have been doing this for some time using other domains.

    I am well known in music production circles online and this is how i get most purchases and, to a certain extent, traffic.

    I rank on the first page of google for keyword phrases like "music production videos/video" which i think is quite good considering the amount of time i have put into the SEO for the site (not enough in my opinion).

    Anyway what i was looking for was an SEO map, something i can use to follow step by step to keep me on track. This i believe is the biggest problem i have, especially when on this site, due to the amount of info here its easy to get sidetracked and never really concetrate on the correct things for the correct amount of time etc.

    I am convinced that if i can get the traffic up to my website and blog i will make much more £££ and be able to move forward with new plans etc.

    So if anyone can point me to a useful SEO day by day guide or planner i would be most grateful.

    Many thanks,

    Mark

    There are a few threads around that have individuals posting up their SEO plans (what they do each day). This is what works for them and is by no means gospel.

    The trick is to start out with someone elses methods and slowly adapt them and add in new information you learn on BHW to create your own method that works well for you.

    thanks for the quick reply.

    I think i need something more detailed, something like:

    Monday - Getting backlinks - use this tool
    Tuesday - Forum posting- use this tool
    Wednesday - Article writing - use this tool
    Thursday - Keyword Research - use these tools
    I hope you get what i mean, i cant find anything liek that here (maybe i am searching for the wrong thing).

    Also is their any software i should be buying to help with things like backlinks? Should i be outsourcing this stuff?

    Sorry for the n00b questions but i really want to get on top of this as £300 a month is nice but i would prefer £3000 lol

    Well, it wouldnt make sense for you to follow a plan that someone else made for themselves.

    You need to make a custom plan that will work for you... Now, lemme give you a plan of action..
    Go to the downloads section and download
    -Link Builders bible
    -Seo footprints
    -Any other link building books you find interesting

    -After you understand what approach you want to take for link building, make a custom plan of action.. Now you need to make this yourselves depending on how much work you can do per day, days you want to take off, tools on your disposal.....etc

    I'll give you an example. This is just a rough thing.. Like I said, you need to make a custom plan for yourself...

    Awesome thanks for the info, i will download the books and read them tonight.

    I actually all ready have 1 website where i have music production video courses so i really only want to be doing stuff that directly targets that, so creating web 2.0 sites etc isnt for me or is there something i am not realising here?


    I only work 3 days a week at the minute so i am capable of working for a whole day writing articles, getting back links etc and a few hours here and there on other days (days off whatever).

    Also i am looking for the most "automated" methods so that in the end i dont have to do hours and hours of work on top of my other work, so i assume tools like "SB Blast" and "scrapebox" will allow me to work like this.

    I think you may be missing the purpose of the web 2.0 properties. You post content (usually spun versions of articles you have written) with contextual links (use you keywords as the anchor text) that point to your music production site. So in your case write an article that is related to music production and put a link back to your site and a link to an internal page of your site. The web 2.0 sites provide quality backlinks to your site and can act as a funnel toward your site if they are well made.

    Then blast the living daylights out of the web 2.0 properties with backlinks from automated methods like scrapebox, AMR, and XRumer.

    well, from your reply, I guess you dont have much idea about link building...

    You really need to read those ebooks..

    Also read "Fat cat blueprint" its available in the downloads section

    -You also need to read up on black hat tools..Go through threads in the black hat seo subforum for info on "scrapebox, Xrumer, Article marketing robot, SE nuke.."

    These are the tools that semi-automate link building tasks..will work amazing if you learn how to use them..

    And google is your friend.. Any doubt, just type away..
    Best of luck!

    There is a great thread on here by a user named Scritty about manually creating web 2.0. It's pretty long now, but definitely worth a read.

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...web2-0-structures-yourself-simple-method.html

    My manual method is to use a website called Targethut.com to find the current best web 2.0 properties that let you build blogs. I then create a yahoo email account for my new persona and snag a small sized profile pic of a real person off of a site like photobucket or similar sites.

    I then use a tool called Roboform which lets me store all the personal information like password, username, location, etc for the persona. I go to the web 2.0 property, click the register link and then use Roboform to populate almost everything except the captcha. I usually just hand type or use Dragon Naturally Speaking software to populate the About Me section of the profile and add my profile pic.

    I make an initial post to the property where I include a picture or a video, but I don't put any links in the post. I save all my url's in excel on a new tab for that persona and then I move on to the next web 2.0 property.

    The initial setup takes about 5 to 10 minutes.

    I come back a few days later and post a spun article with 2 links to my money site: 1 link directly to the top level of the site and 1 link to an internal page. I may also include a link to an authority site like wikipedia or some big well known site, to make it seem less spammy.

    I also try to make a youtube video and embed it in my second or third post, but not all of the web 2.0 properties support that.

    For me, the most time consuming part is spinning an article with The Best Spinner or Spinner Chief after I write it. But if you take the time to spin it well, so that it's readable by real people, you can use it without worry on all of your web 2.0 properties as well as using it for article directory submissions with programs like AMR.

    The web 2.0 properties dont sound difficult at all.

    I will get on it ASAP.

    Any other advice very welcome,

    Home Page:
    1. Insert keywords within the title tag so that search engine robots will know what your page is about. The title tag is located right at the top of your document within the head tags. Inserting a keyword or key phrase will greatly improve your chances of bringing targeted traffic to your site.

    Make sure that the title tag contains text which a human can relate to. The text within the title tag is what shows up in a search result. Treat it like a headline.

    2. Use the same keywords as anchor text to link to the page from different pages on your site. This is especially useful if your site contains many pages. The more keywords that link to a specific page the better.

    3. Make sure that the text within the title tag is also within the body of the page. It is unwise to have keywords in the title tag which are not contained within the body of the page.

    I asume you mean the title tags on my money site? If so this is all ready in place and is probably contributing to my site being on page on google for 2 long tail keyword phrases :)

    thanks for the info though, much appreciated, keep em coming :)
