Hello everyone, I'm Landon! I just wanted to take a few moments to write a quick little post about my recent success.

I first want to define success from my POV. Success to me isn't necessarily monetary. Sometimes I set a goal for my self and when said goal is attained then I've achieved success.

This is only partial success for me, I feel like it's a great start though. Recently I started my first niche site. I just joined these forums not too long ago and I had no clue about anything related to SEO....honestly I didn't know what that meant. I started off by learning everything I could, buying WSO's, and learning about terms and what they mean.

So I decided on my niche and when I decided I didn't realize (because I didn't research properly) that my niche was going to be super difficult to rank in...this is due to the fact that it's dominated by big companies.

Well today I was checking for my main keywords in Google and I've found that I'm ranked #28 out of 24.2 million! I started trying to rank on the 28th of March 2012.

Anyways, I wanted to say thank you for this great place! I never could've done it without all the knowledge contained here! Now all that's left to do is rinse and repeat and watch the $$ flow in (hopefully).

Thank you all so much again

P.S.
If any new warriors have any specific questions I'll try to point you in the right direction! Just don't give up if you don't see immediate results!

      Hi Jim,

      Sorry for the delayed reply! I've been super busy working on other great opportunities!

      1. I found an EMD (Exact Match Domain)

      2. I wrote a bit of quality content. More exact I found quality content on the internet and I spun it really well. Went over it, corrected any mistakes.

      3. I went and SEO optimized the content. I use All In One SEO (a wordpress plugin).

      4. I did some backlinking. Manual backlinking is great! Start with about 10 per day. You can also buy some fiverr gigs for backlinking services if you need major links.

      For me, I needed major backlinking because I was going up against HUGE companies. I also bought an indexing gig on fiverr. I'd say that I spent around $30 total + the cost of hosting and domain registration.

    This is a very good illustration of success. And it encourages us to focus on the long term, lasting results, and not necessarily doing it for money.

    A truly inspiring story. It's really good to know that you are able to look back the things you have been in the past even though you are now in the midst of success. Lesson: Always put your feet on the ground.

        Congratulations Landon!

        Your post reminded me of "The Little Engine That Could".

        The big companies being the big engined trains and you being the little engine. Getting your site to rank 28th means you're almost at the top of the mountain. Continue with your "I think I can, I think I can" and you'll be at the top in no time!

        Keep up that momentum.

        Terra

    It's possible I could create a short course. I've watched a few courses and they've given quite good information.
