    Who is RTG96?

    First off, Let me go ahead and give everyone a introduction to who I am. I have been into Internet Marketing since 2011, my first journey was eBay, and I did VERY well my first 2-3 months with eBay and always let eBay run as a side business. My 2nd big venture was SEO and Adsense, I was killing it around 2012 and 13, until a network of my sites got hacked... Gained from that experience and moved on. Fast forward today, I focus on legit, Whitehat, long-term businesses. It really gets on my nerves seeing everyone treat Internet Marketing like it is a Get rich quick scheme. I usually take a loss before I start banking, and learned that taking a loss at first can be a good or great thing for long-term business. Reminds me of Wal-Mart's business model, they took a huge loss at first to shut down the smaller Mom & Pap business, evil and today it is Illegal.


    Why am I doing this?

    I do ALOT of case studies (Buying Psychology, "Would you buy a service from a College/High School dropout?, SEO ranking sites, etc...), and decided to go ahead and make this one for BHW. I have had a few people ask me if I think Social Media links will still count for 2016, I want to see if I can rank Top 30 with JUST social media links and really good on-site SEO. This is Just a case study, hopefully we can learn a bit from it.


    Lets get down to Business

    I own a large network of very good domains, Today I will be choosing 2 domains:


    Domain 1: .com, 6 months old, No Page rank or authority.

    Domain 2: .org, 2 Days old, No page rank or authority.


    Both Domains include Keywords (Not EMD but close!)



    Both sites will be ranked with a equal amount of Social Media Links.

    Both sites will start with 25 On-site comments including the Keywords.

    Both sites will be given 700 Word articles written by me with a KW density of 1-2%.

    For the 2nd week I will add another 25 relevant comments to the blog post. The sites will have only 1 blog post! By comments I mean I will use a WP plugin that comments on-site, not backlinks!



    About the Keywords I will be choosing:


    I will first focus on the High competition main KW's


    2 Keywords, 1 High competition, 1 Low Competition.

    Low competition keywords will be a product review keyword. (Specific product that is not too popular)



    Site #1 Main KW Details and Competition:

    Site #2 Main KW Details and Competition:

    Screen Shot 2015-12-27 at 5.33.31 PM.png


    Let's Start:

    12/27/15


    1. I will go ahead and write 700 Word articles for each site and use a WP comment plugin to go ahead and post 25 real looking comments on the blog page, comments will include main KW.

    2. I will head over to Canva.com and make some grahics for the sites, they will look like real, authrority sites. Everything from images to content will be 100% Unique!


    Site #1 Rank for Main KW: Nowhere

    Site #2 Rank for Main KW: Nowhere

    Post up any questions or thoughts.

    Should be interesting to see the results on this. I've almost always seen improvements with social signals, despite others saying it makes no difference in terms of SEO.
    Best of luck with the journey :)

    Sure, its Jared255's Hype Generator. The reason why I didn't include that is a bunch of members here would scream "THIS IS A THREAD MADE TO PROMOTE JAREDS HYPE GENERATOR!!!!" and blah blah blah. Thanks for subscribing :) Hopefully we can learn something from this.

    Sounds interesting, just don't rush.
    Everything will rank :) just you need a bit time.
    Competition is not that great, you can rank easily.

    I have recently read few case studies where IMs are able to rank just based on social media links. Highly anticipate it'd be a success. Good luck.

    Interesting case study. From where are you buying the social signals?

    Interesting to see what (if any) effect the social signals will have. However I wish you would have put the bar a bit higher, maybe go for top15 or something. If these keywords are truly low-comp you should hit page 2-4 upon indexing if your on-page is spot on...

    I gotta say I do agree with that, I think the relevant comments will also give me a little boost, we will have to wait and see :)

    I know social signals help indirectly. Links help directly. You have one keyword which is competitive. It will be interesting to see if social signals help to rank competitive keyword. Wish you all the best.
