This sort of happened by accident.
I was doing some keyword research for one of my clients and stumbled upon a long tail keyword phrase (5 words) that has 4,000 daily search results and at that time (one week ago) it had less than 3,000 competition.
Anyway, I was able to grab the hyphenated .com domain for that keyword.
Being way too lazy that day (and hangovered as well) I couldn't bother myself to build a website, I went to Blogger opened a blog, made 10 blog posts optimized with the keyword, transfered the domain to that blog and submitted the site map to the search engines.
Then I used a social bookmarking submission automated software (BIG Mike's SocialBot) to get backlinks to all the pages of my blog (every blog post is considered a page and so are the comments for each post).
Take into account that the keyword is completely informative, it doesn't really have commercial value, but I thought what the heck ANYTHING can be monetized. So I went to Clickbank grabbed a related product and spread my affiliate link all over the blog.
Today I just did a Google search for the keyword and I'm in position #1. I logged to my Clickbank account and I already made 7 sales in ONE day.
All this costed me $8 for the domain name, about 2-3 hours worth of work and it will make me passive residual income forever without me having to lift a single finger.
1. Hyphenated domains are crap for SEO.
2. Keywords need to have commercial value (This proves ANYTHING can be monetized).
3. Making fast cash is not possible.
4. Out ranking authority sites is hard (My 1 week old PR0 blog is out ranking PR8 websites for that keyword).
5. Mass instant backlinks don't work.
P.S: Take into account that this can also be done in Wordpress and for better results you can even use the All In One SEO Pack plugin.
