Just a quick Success Story I figured I'd share with you all.
So about 3 months ago I was doing keyword research and I found a keyword getting around 800 exact local monthly searches.
It was definitely a BUYERS keyword so I figured I'd do some further research.
I first went to Godaddy and found that the EXACT domain .com was available for this keyword (really lucked out on this)
Next, I checked Google and found that basically NO other sites were using the keyword in their domain, and rarely in their descriptions or even completely in the title.
So I bought the domain, set up a Wordpress TwentyTen theme and followed Kelly's advice in the Jumpstart guide to the T.
Next I posted around 8 PLR articles over the next several weeks.
I also did PURELY MANUAL blog comment backlinks on blogger and other blogs that I found that had at least a PR2 in my niche (probably about 20 of these backlinks total)
I also made sure to have a category widget and a tag cloud widget, took the dates off of all of my posts, pinged all pages on my blog and submitted the articles to a handful of social media sites.
I also made an RSS of my blog on Feedburner and submitted it various RSS directories.
2 months later... #2 on Google.
I'm now getting traffic primarily for my keyword but also a major amount from a keyword I never even thought about beforehand.
6000k highly targeted buyer visits a month. Total time = probably less than 20 hours. Total money = $0.
Hope that inspires some of you to go out and get it done!
Nice mate! Keep Rocking and keep sharing your views here.
