    Whaddup y'all?!


    I have been on BHW for a while now (even on an older account which I forgot about), but this is my first journey post because I feel like I am kind of stuck and want to move forward.

    I got decent experience with (Internet) Marketing but I am not your all time SEO guru.


    THE GAME PLAN

    In february I bought 4 micro niche sites from 'luhasr' here on BHW. Shoutout!
    So the game plan is to rank these sites to #1 in Google!
    Website Niche
    1 Health
    2 Jobs
    3 Furniture
    4 Photography


    This is what I started with. I will list all the services/resources I use in this very thread.


    Where you at now?

    So you are probably thinking: "You have these sites since february, hasn't your lazy ass done anything the last few months?"
    I went travelling doing some other random shit, but it is time to turn this franchise around. Let's make some $$$!

    So a week or two before I bought some services on BHW. For the organizations' sake I will put the progress per site in a table.

    Website # of Articles Services bought Rank
    1 4 http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/seo-link-building/466462-bookmark-hero-social-bookmarks-reseller-price-2-3-free-drip-feed.html (300 package) http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/seo-link-building/648043-cheapest-blog-posting-service-unbeatable-price-up-750-posts-starting-15-a.html ($15 package) -
    2 - - -
    3 3 - 139
    4 3 - -
    *Website 2 is temporarily down. Will fix this asap!
    *All articles are ~500 words




    So what's next?

    Honestly I am not really clear on what do to next. So I used my 'SEO block' to study a lot of cases and read a lot of blogs. I must say I have found some information to work with. I guess I'll just slowly start the trial and error phase, testing out different methods to build backlinks and trying out different services.
    The reason I am doing this testing is because I want to build a blueprint for niche sites like these and start banging them out in bulk.

    I will keep updating this thread every time I learn, create or find something useful. I know how valuable some journeys CAN be, so I'm just giving my 2 cents.

    Let's make some money guys! Peace!

    Good luck with your journey mate. :) Perhaps you should also try the method jamesvick used to rank his sites using only tier 1 links. Found the link to his thread only for you lol -
    Code:
    [URL]http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/664838-you-still-playing-tier-1-tier-2-like-kids-read.html[/URL]
    And maybe you can keep sharing your ranking results with us. :)

    Thanks for the kind words!

    @abhi007, Indeed! Didn't know about him before. But then again, there are many 'go-to-guys' in this game.

    Good luck dude, stick with it. I have had months where I didn't get as much done as I wanted due to my full-time job so don't beat yourself up over it. Now's the time to make some serious $$$$. I look forward to seeing your progress.

    One love y'all!

    Website no.4 just went up to #112
    However website no. 3 went down to #155

    Today I'm getting a report on tier 2 backlinks made to my blogposts which are directed to my money site (website 1)
    I will update you guys with the result!

    At least now I got 2 sites top 200! :D

    Update #1



    Website # of Articles Services bought Rank MS
    1 4 http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/seo-link-building/466462-bookmark-hero-social-bookmarks-reseller-price-2-3-free-drip-feed.html (300 package) http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/seo-link-building/648043-cheapest-blog-posting-service-unbeatable-price-up-750-posts-starting-15-a.html ($15 package) - 1000
    2 - - - 1300
    3 3 - 155 1300
    4 3 - 112 3600
    I added the monthly searches to the table.
    So as you can see, website no. 2 is still offline. Haven't had the time/energy/motivation to get it up and running. Will do so ASAP.
    I think it is also time for a new article on my highest ranking site a.k.a no. 4. For sure can't hurt.
    Nothing yet from the tier 2 backlinks. Will update as soon as I get the reports.

    As you guys all can see now, these sites are regarding micro niches. Like I said before, I'm trying to create a blueprint for bulk creation of these sites.

    I just want to see if the sites keep this rank before buying more services, just to keep it organized and see what effects the different services have.

    However my first site (health niche) is not picking up any ranks yet after buying those two services. I would've thought they would do at least something due to the nature of the competition.
    Anybody has any words on this? Do I have to wait more? Did I fuck up my anchors? I really don't know. I'm just gonna let it sit for a while and see what happens. I would love to hear some opinions/experiences with services like these.

    However for site no. 4 I'm planning to buy some blog posts very soon!


    Hope you all are having a good day and thanks for the kind words!
