    Okay, so after asking some noob questions on here, I decided to grab a copy of the following:

    SE Nuke X
    AMR
    SEO Powersuite (Paid Professional)

    After reading these forums I loaded SE NukeX and AMR struggled my way through the wizards, I previously was paying a company £500 per month to advertise 6 keywords for me, although they did this quite successfully for the keywords, I had less than 10 clicks in a 4 month period with them according to Analytic data.

    So 4 days ago, I began using the tools, I wrote 2 articles 600 words including keywords I wanted to be ranked for, I then changed the title tag of my site to include the keywords at the beginning followed by my company name.

    After this, I followed the guides on the forums and after reading so many helpful threads on these tools I let them get to work, after 4 days, I have to say, I am absolutely gobsmacked by the results I am seeing.

    The market is rather popular, the difference is, my keyword includes an area, which receives an approximate 1300 searches per month, so SEO Powersuite 2 days ago told me I wasnt within the top 1000 results for my keyword(s).

    After going to bed I was ranked 289/1000 for one of the keywords, 900+ some being out of the 1000 results for the others.

    Just doing a check now, I can google my keyword and I am on page 3 for my main keyword, ranking just 25th. within the top 100 for all my other keywords.

    This is BETTER than the SEO company managed to achieve for me in 2 months!

    Having read these forums I found that the SEO company I used (Nothing todo with BHW) had gave me completely false information regarding traffic estimations etc.

    I just thought this thread may give some hope to anyone within BHW that are just starting out, if I can pullout these results (hope they last), then there is nothing stopping you guys!!!

    I will be most certainly donating very shortly.

    Many thanks :D

    You should always do your own keyword research...that's the moral here if nothing else. They sold you easy keywords and then ranked for them.

    Also keep in mind that 4 days is not very long to see results for most types of links, including AMR and Web 2.0 stuff. It could be something they did in conjunction with what you're doing.

    I reccomend you also grab Scrapebox, its a one time fee, and you can power up your links with it :)


    Also I can NOT stress this enough - KEYWORD RESEARCH IS VITAL!!!

    What tips would you give me for keyword research? for example, if i want to target leicester gardeners, I would assume that would be an ideal keyword, is that not the case?

    I used googles keyword tool, I thought this was the best way todo it, I downloaded the trial of MS too, however not sure.. one of the tools I wanted to use was IBP but cant find a valid download link in the thread so i guess ill have to wait for that, onsite content isnt something im particularly good at you see, so im relying on backlinks articles etc at the moment, I do appreciate all comments
