    When I said "From nothing" I literally meant it.

    Interesting enough, I had $0 to my name, no money to buy domain or anything, so I started using what was available to myself, and If you don't believe me, you can check out this thread.

    The only reason I was able to get started was because bluematter, donated so that I could get started, so I can say that the only reason I was able to do what I have done up to this point because of him.. so I own him everything, and I'll be sure to get him that $$ back =P

    Most people don't realize how amazing a lot of people here are, with all the information and help they give out without wanting anything back.

    After bluematter, It took me a little bit to get started on my journey because I had a lot more reading to do and basically that's just me lying, I had paralysis by analysis, after I got started everything was much easier.. so I didn't want to spend time posting here so I've been away for the most part.. so far I have the following:

    [​IMG]

    It's been around 7 months.

    Niche: super sub niche/health related
    Domain: 1 domain
    Posts: 20
    Rankings: http://i.imgur.com/hb5py1U.png

    The rankings have been doing great so far because I started doing SEO for the past two months.
    I got myself a little money so I've been investing in it.

    Details: about 10-15 keywords here that are ranking are buying keywords that I am targeting products from Amazon, that is the only way so far I have found a way to monetize and that was my plan from the beginning, but it's probably not such a great idea for long-term, in case I start seeing serious traffic in the next few months I will do my own product such as an ebook to sell, but that's only if I get good traffic.

    THE BIG STEP TAKEN

    As far as SEO, I've been doing only web 2.0's and contextual links, and that was me ordering from two different users here on BHW.. one for web 2.0, and the other was for GSA blasts..

    So I analyzed that, the money I had spend already on SEO was enough for me to buy a software tool.. and I don't want to have to buy SEO forever, at least the blasts.. so I bought GSA two days ago.. with indexer and captcha solver, plus I already have it running on VPS.

    Since I was already following my own SEO plan, I could remove the middle man and just do it myself, considering I am just powering up my links.

    Anyway, I believe that in a few months if I want to take this to the next level, such as going after those two keywords that are nowhere to be found, that have 100k and the other 200k searches per month I will need PBN or guest posts and then use GSA to power them up.. we shall see..

    NOW, this is a big step and investment.. for someone who had literally no money to their name.

    THE END GOAL IN MIND

    I want to be earning at least $30 per day, in the next three to five months..

    EARNINGS SO FAR: $0

    I have 1 nice and custom looking ad on the right sidebar leading to a clickbank product, a few hops but no sales so far.. I will need to do a custom ad to include it in the bottom of every article, so we'll see how the CTR improves after I do that.

    I am open to suggestions any at given time as well.

    Good luck with your journey! One question: Do you think GSA still works? I read somewhere that they only work with low competition keywords. Do you think the indexer solves your problem?

    All my keywords above that are ranking, even the ones that have 50k and 40k searches per month were powered up with GSA, although they have a bit more competition so it's in the 3rd page but it jumped up from nowhere, so I have no doubt that GSA works, it's just a tool to help you, everything will depend on your strategy and competition, overall your SEO plan.

    Good luck. Looks good, you could probably rank that 50k searches word with just more web 2.0s and some profile links, would rank that before going after the bigger ones

    If you can wade through all the dubious members who have ulterior motives posting their copy and paste methods with their 100% guaranteed affiliate links sprinkled throughout. I don't doubt there's helpful people here but I've lurked a long time and read and read hundreds of BHW threads. There's a lot of members here only to satisfy their own agenda, but that's affiliate marketing. Everyone's trying to make money and so am I.

    I plan on doing that next, I'm getting the hang of GSA for all my tier 1's, already got one batch of links going so that I can scrape a nice list of verified sites.

    I'll be sure to give an update on everything that I have done so far.

    I want to hit page one for all my current keywords, they're all nicely interlinked and has silo, so juice is flowing perfectly throughout the whole site.

    Thanks guys!

    Things are going great with GSA, I'm still learning a lot and how to optimize it to get the most out of it, but so far so good.

    I bought GSA, GSA Indexer, GSA Captcha Breaker, Wicked Article Creator and now I am thinking about buying SCRAPEBOX.. I'm seeing a lot of positive results and my organic visitors are going up, not because of the recent tools but because of the SEO I've been doing overall for the past two months, a lot of keywords hit first page, and are bouncing.

    I haven't gotten any sales yet..

    Either way, as I was saying I might buy scrapebox to scrape targets for GSA.. I think that is a better option so that I can just use GSA for posting and not scraping.. anyone have any suggestions?

    Good luck buddy; I saw that you're targeting health niche and will be using CB - I personally know a LOT of people who started from zero and now are doing this full time...and with your attitude I have no doubts that you will succeed.

    The only linkbuilding you made was from 2.0s as tier and GSA blasts for the lower tiers? Looking forward for updates, mate. Good luck!

    Are you Brazilian, dude? Or is it just a stylistic nickname? I'm asking so, because i am from that country and it's amazing to see a Brazilian fellow taking action, if that's the case haha

    Anyway, next year i'm also gonna begin working on a site, so a successful journey of yours may only boost my motivation. :D

    Good luck and nice earnings!
