I had a few questions about planning for my new blog. What I've done: I've just setup my blog, and I'm going to be writing in web design and internet marketing. I'm using nibbleblog (very lightweight blog cms). I've written 6 HQ articles at 500-700 words a piece. Posted the 6 articles over 7 days. "Fetched as Google" and setup my sitemap with Google Webmasters. Installed Google Analytics Setup Serpbook with article titles What I plan to do: Continue to publish one article per day (hand written, unique, 500-600 words). Monitor Serpbook Questions: If I'm trying to be as whitehat as possible, am I choosing the right course of action? How long should I expect to wait to start seeing traffic on low competition keywords? Should I perform further SEO other than using the correct markup (h1,h2,meta data, alt tags)? Thank you very much for any help!
