Thanks for the thanks silent viewers!
Day 2 part 1 update:
TASK: keyword research
i am choosing 11 keywords for my site, and will create a page for each once the site is up and running.
i use 3 free tools for keyword research:
keyword shitter, created by blakamia on here
and google adwords keyword tool
The steps are as follows:
check google trends for hot topics - pick one that interests me
insert term into keywordshitter and make note of results
check results in adwords tool for search volume and competition.
The key with the adsense tool is to look for "exact" matches (the term is in square brackets) and check the country you will be optimising for.
I am using google trends to find current topics that will increase the likelihood of fast ranking and a high number of searches for the 2 week period. Also, trending topics are more likely to attract genuine social media interest, lessening the need for social boosts.
Thinking ahead about monetisation, I want the site to be making money with adsense after 2 weeks, so the keywords must not be too current, otherwise the site will die out in a few weeks/months.
After the keyword research, I will buy a url and hosting and report back with the results. Off to work...
vey very good topic man
How do you build High link? Do you have any ebook that can recommend? Thank you
Thanks a lot! hope it proves useful.
I use several methods when building up High PR links, and will discuss them in detail when I get to that stage of the project. Part of my method is manual, and part automated. You basically need to identify the High PR sites first, then set about building a links from them.
I don't read many e-books and haven't found any that prove useful. I don't really use books in general as I often find techniques become dated very quickly. Hope this helps.
Good luck .. following this thread
I'll be keeping up with this one! Lofty goal!
I appreciate how thorough you have been and aspire to continue to be. I'm sure it will help out a lot of people.
Obviously you don't want to give away your niche or keywords, but just to give us a bit better of an idea as to what the competition and search volume is like, could you possibly throw a general number our way? How low is 'low competition' and how high is 'high search volume?'
i will be always watching your journey.. and of course, will implement your techniques to my site. Thanks for great work.
Best of luck mate. I gotta say just from seeing you taking the time to go in depth in what you are doing shows that you are someone who follows through on what they do. Honestly that's more than half the battle right there. I have no doubt that you will reach your goal eventually.
Very detailed I will be following this thread.
Thanks, hope you get some ideas along the way.
Good question, thanks for reminding me!
Ok, so I have 11 keywords, the highest volume is 54,000 local searches, the lowest is 1,100. The global figures are higher (about double I think, but I did not write them down). Competition-wise, google discerns all the keywords as "Low" competition, but after searching myself I think they are medium; lots of medium PR blogs to compete with. I could have picked easier terms, but these will prove very lucrative with adsense if I succeed, so that's my motivation!
No problem, thanks for the comment. Hope you will also share your results on here!
Thank you! I spent a lot of time on seo strategising in the past and have written quite a few help docs so I'm glad that shows.
Starting work on Day 3 tasks now...will report back soon.
Subscribed! Also interested in what your exact search volume is like for your main keywords.
*edit* nevermind, see your answer to this above my post. 54,000 exact search volume? That's going to be tough.
This looks like a good journey - well planned, if not a bit of a tight schedule.
good luck, and I'm subscribed.
by the way, do you have 1 primary keyword or are you just trying to get any one of those 11 to page 1?
are you going to post the analysis of the keywords?
how much content are you getting written? Are you using HQ content/image rich? Or just standard stuff?
is it a new or aged domain?
have you got plan for anchor text density of your backlinks?
Good luck. Will be watching
Yeah... I only started with making websites yesterday and I have a quick question however nooby it must sound.
Right, you find the keywords... where do you stick em?
I can't imagine how many facepalms are going on right now
Really interesting post, I will be following as very interested to see how it pans out.
Will you be doing all the link building manually?
Sounds like quite a tough challenge.
Nice, subscribed, really usefull.
FYI, I want to clear something up for you, in google keyword tool if Google says it is "low" comp, that means low ADVERTISER comp, not low seo comp.
So what that means for you since you are doing a made for ad sense site is that there are just a few advertisers bidding on these keywords meaning you might want to consider a different monetization method.
I think the keywords you want have the opposite features, high advertiser comp (so niche relevant ads show up on the site) but medium to low SEO comp (so its easy to rank on page 1).....
