Heey bhw and thx to everyone who entered this thread. hey guys i'm a newbie at SEO i just started learning 2 days ago ( well gotta start somewhere ) , and i have a few questions well here's what i've done this far , i found a keyword with 5000 local monthly searches and a cpc of 0.5 ( almost none of the sites that are ranked have the exact keyword im going for ) so i created a free website for the keyword ( i know what ur gonna say but i currently cannot buy a domain name and it's not due to financial reasons more because of the fact that i havn't got a credit card nor a paypal acc ) so even tho it's free it's an exact match free domain , i uploaded word press and installed all in one seo pack and xml sitemaps on it and made a static page with an image and some content , i then tried some backlinking ( i submitted my site to 2 social bookmarking sites , 2 social network sites and 5 wiki site and i'm about to start a blog and write a few articles) okay so far so good i guess but i have a few questions : 1- how do i get my site indexed on google (srry if its a newbie qustion ) ?? 2- can i really rank a free domain site ??? 3-i got my adsence acc approved but should i wait to see if i rank my site first ???
