Hi there, I started this journey mainly as a motivational aid to keep on track with the goal and also to share and develop ideas in the company of any like-minded people who stumble upon this thread. Bit about me: I'm 20-something, in the UK and have worked professionally in SEO for the last 4 years, mainly in the tourism sector. Everything I did professionally was 100% white hat, manual, and rather boring. Recently, I've been developing bots and systems to add automation to some of the effective manual processes I developed, so you could call me grey-hat or stripey or whatever. Enough waffle, here's the challenge: ***Google Page 1 for high-search-volume keyword in 14 days (or less)*** Why 2 weeks? Well, that's how long I have until I start another project, and I also think it can be done. My entire journey budget is $100 (about £70). This will include domain, hosting, all software or services purchased. I have a few tools of my own I will use, and everything else will be manual or outsourced. I will try to reference all the services I use so others can benefit from an honest review. Given the tight budget, I will be using as many free services and resources as possible, and will post them all here. I will be targeting the UK (or more specifically google.co.uk) for my keyword, but my methods will be global and therefore useful on google.com and other local search engines. I won't share exact keywords or my url until after the journey, but I will share the general niche and everything else. The rough 2-week outline is as follows: Day 1: Outline project and post journey thread (check!). Day 2: Keyword research, domain and hosting purchase. Day 3: Site installation (wordpress) and design. Day 4: Site content creation and upload Day 5: Link Building Tier 1 - High PR social media 1 "The Big Five" + social bookmarks Day 6: On-site social optimisation Day 7: Social blasts Day 8: Go to the beach (if it isn't raining) Day 9: Link building Tier 1: High PR article submission (and article writing) Day 10:Link building Tier 2: Medium PR social media and bookmarks Day 11:Link building Tier 2: Medium PR wiki links Day 12: Link building Tier 3: Low PR blog links Day 13: Method X: special method to be revealed later (when I have figured it out properly lol) Day 14: Keyword report, project analysis and the results! I hope that's a clear enough plan for people to follow. If anyone wants to try another 2-week method alongside me, jump aboard! Today is Day 1, and my work is done already, woo.
