I have scored a VICTORY with IM

23 replies
Hey guys,

Thanks to Ed and the guys over at 30DC, I have a Wordpress blog, and not only is it indexed, it is on page 1 of Google at spot #11. I have 3 posts, and will hopefully put more on today.

I know it's not big, but, it was a BIG stepping stone for me. I am SO excited!

Jeremy

    Fantastic Jeremy!

    Taking that first step just got you 80% of the way there, now just carry through with your wave of adrenalin and excitement into achieving everything you ever dreamed of (and never, ever give up)

    Cheers, Tim

    Let me ask one question. I am doing the 30 DC, and I am not sure if you are familiar with that or not, but, here is my situation. I was struggling to pick a niche, and I just chose one, but, it turns out that it may not have been the best choice.

    The requirements for the 30DCis to have less than 30,000 competing sites, and there are nearly 50,000. Am I in trouble? Or, can I do something?

    It is a VERY specific micro-niche, and, I don't know in the world I'll monetize it, with the exception of affiliate Amazon links (but, I am just a third of the way in to the 30DC, too.)

    Any thoughts?

      You should be fine. In actuality, the difference between 30,000 and 50,000 isn't all that huge. Most are not really "competition".

      Hi Jeremy,

      With some good backlinks you can easily dominate this niche. I tell people they can be at the top easily with 500,000 or fewer competing sites.

        Dumb question, but, what are backlinks, and how do they work? Also, how do I put them in my blog?

        I think they are links from other sites to mine, but, not sure yet. I welcome instruction, O Wise Ones.

          You are right that backlinks are links from other sites that link to yours. There are some great ways to get good backlinks and you will find many of them right here in this forum. If you need any more information about them, feel free to send me a PM.

            Yes, the 30 DC is a great place for newbies to begin. A very good instructor at the helm Ed Dale and his team. You can't go wrong and it's FREE.

            Angela, I wanted to post this in your WSO thread, but 'cause I'm a newbie, the system wouldn't let me. I want to THANK YOU for your backlinks packet. I sat down with it yesterday and managed to set up backlinks from almost all the sites you listed. As of last night, Google had not even indexed my site yet (it's VERY new). Today I checked, and I'm now ON PAGE 1 for my target keywords!!! (And it's not even a long-tail phrase, just two words, I'm #7 out of almost 3 million search results.) This is just incredible to me - I can hardly believe I'm not dreaming!

            THANK YOU!!!

            - Christine

    Congratulations on that, I remember the first blog I build a long time ago and I was so excited when it made $2 in commissions. You'll soon be onwards and upwards.

    Good luck

      Quick question.....what is 30dc? Is this a 30 day course of some kind? Just wondering if you could elaborate a little more.


      Thanks,

        The 30 Day Challenge is an EXCELLENT course put together by Ed Dale of Australia. He has put together this course with a few others, and it is designed, in 30 days, to help you make your first dollar ( or ten) online.

        The website is www.thirtydaychallege.com.

        It is completely free to do.

      Jeremy,

      I had similar questions as you. Im no SEO expert in fact Im on this forum to learn things about it. Im kinda going in a roundabout fashion - LOL. On the way to fact checking a SEO story, a SEO "expert" who wanted to bill my offline co $60k a year for [insurance agency] - I found out about Blogs, SEO silo'ing, domain naming, article writing, plug ins, hosting, html editors, video marketing, flash file converters, viddler, blog farming, and autoblogging

      Ohh yeah... and I really went on a bender, when I saw Frank Kerns new Mass Control video's - holy sh!t - what a diversion from the original plan

      WOW ... ive learned a buttload o' stuff in 45 days!!!

      Anyhow - congrats on your success. I popped in here to tell you, I dont know all that much, but recently read from guys that profess to, that the sheer number of competeing pages in your keyword/niche isnt always the TRUE competition ... they may not be OPTIMIZED for your keywords. They may be ranking currently, but you have proven in a short time you may be able to compete.

      There's some good threads in here ... use the advanced search feature and search titles for Micro Niche Finder - I found some gems in there.

      Im cautious to tell much more as I dont want to give bad advice. Search it up and ask away - Im sure you 'll get your answers.

      As an example; I have a 3 word long tail keyword, and Im #1 and # 5 for it currently - Google says the following Results 1 - 10 of about 2,390,000. My static landing page is #1, and my Blog has a page @ #5.

      Sadly its not a very often searched keyword. Site went live late Dec 2008 - really wasnt done until Jan 10th. Close to 300 unique visitors. Oh well ...
