    I am so pleased. Today on my lunch break I googled one of my domains and was #1! The site gets 14,800 exact US searches per month and according to google Insight, the interest is only going up!

    I have to thank Phpbuilts list of web 2.0, and one of his posts on how to rank a niche site. I started building web 2.0's using his list, and since then have refined my own list to ones that are do-follow only, high PR and easy to post new blog posts on.

    My full process has been posted here several times. Basic link pyramid. Build lots of good web 2.0's to your site, blast the hell out of those using whatever you can. Scrapebox, AMR (I use AMR ALOT!!). I also scrapebox my AMR articles. I have under my sleeve over 200 auto approve directories in my AMR database right now am keeping them VERY busy. I also will do AMR blasts to my money site occasionally.

    My site is not an EMD. It is the keyword and an extra letter.com. The site is also ranking #1-3 for some related keywords/pages. Monetization is coming along. I use Amazon as I love to see the extra sales from the cookie on their computer. People buy some weird stuff!

    Before being #1 today, the site was around #6. I did some new posting on my web 2.0's yesterday, AMR'd each post and blasted them all with SB. This influx of links may have been what threw me up to #1 today. It may be a dance, but it has been over 6 hours at #1 so maybe it will stick and be my lucky day! :D

    I am a full time carpenter. I bust my ass all day, and get maybe 1-2 hours a night (with many interruptions) to work on IM. If you have more time than me, you can get your site(s) to number 1 no problem. You just have to stay focused, and make clear goals for yourself. It is posted on here day after day, that if you do not formulate a plan and stay focused on that plan, you will never achieve what you want. I now have three sites that are #1 for their main keyword, and a handful others I am working on. Now that I am getting the ranking process down, I am scaling and creating more sites.

    Anyways this post is partly bragging as I am thrilled about this new spot on Google, but also let it be some inspiration for anyone trying hard to rank a site.

    Great job on your site! I will have to use that strategy on my site when i get going with it. I am focusing on the web 2.0 sites at the moment getting them setup in the search engines and then going to create my money site shortly after. Kudos for the #1 spot

    Great work! Now just scale it up but don't sacrifice quality.

    Btw, I use the same strategy and it seems to work well with my medium comp keywords too.

    Do you create new web 2.0 each time or do you continue adding new posts to pre-existing web 2.0s as phpbuilt recommends?

    Of course it is #1. Not #11, #1! Yeah sure 14,000 may seem very low to some of you, but like I said, SEO and IM is a part time hobby for me, and I am only getting started!

    I already have Amazon on the site, it will probably earn me 200ish this month as it was near the bottom of page 1. Now that it's #1 I hope to see a large increase in revenue.

    crazedspyker - I actually saved Phpbuilt's post onto my desktop and read it last night, the one where he recommends you add new posts. So last night, for the very first time, I added a second post to several of my web 2.0's. But instead of linking them to a new post on my money site, I linked them to already existing posts because as of yet I have only focused building links for the homepage. So last night I did new posts on maybe 10-15 web 2.0's, linked them to already posted articles on my money site, blasted each one with AMR (200 links each), then blasted all the articles with a 15k AA scrapebox list.

    I believe this was the cause for the #1 rank. I did that last night, and the scrapebox ran overnight, so if it was in fact this linking that did it, it only took Google a few hours. I should also mention I add all my links into Lindexed and put it to drip the links over 2-3 days.

    great post. Have you gotten a feel for which web 2.0s that allow your spun content and which ones will delete you for "spam"
