I am implementing a little twist to this by restricting myself to ONLY using fiverr.com for link building. I'll make updates to this thread as much as possible throughout the 90 days or until I hit #1.
My target keyword for #1 ranking is: make money with google
Challenge: Within 90 Days, I will rank #1 for the term "make money with google" using only fiverr.com for link building.
URL: I'll be creating a new post on my personal blog so you can see from scratch how I do this.
(update! new page created Make Money With Google - Important Steps!
Competition: There is currently 47,600,000 competing pages on google for the broad results of "make money with google".
Notes: I am shooting for the BROAD keyword and a #1 ranking. I understand that this is a long shot to hit within 90 days - Especially starting from scratch and using a website that is only a couple months old. However, I intend to stick with this until I hit my goal, regardless if I go past the 90 day mark.
Why I chose this keyword? This is exactly the type of person I want reading my personal blog - someone who is looking for ways to make money with google/adsense. My goal is to capture this traffic onto my list and eventually sell them high end coaching products.
I'll be doing quite a bit of experimenting too. I am going to test a lot of different types of link building providers at fiverr and will share my results so you can also utilize the best providers.
If you have any questions, let me know!
Update 1 - February 25, 2011
I hired a writer at fiverr to create the content article for my new post.
Here is the gig I used...
http:// www. fiverr .com/users/kapsco1/gigs/write-two-400-plus-word-latent-semantic-indexing-articles-which-are-100-percent-unique (NOT recommended)
I requested 1 article to be written instead of 2 x 400 word articles as described in the gig. I believe google will prefer the longer content.
Here is what I gave the provider as instructions:
Please write one 800+ word article based on this keyword - "make money with google"
Additional keywords to work into content if possible...
[how to make money]
[make money online]
[how to make money fast]
[ways to make money]
Here is an example article:

Update 2 - February 28, 2011
1) I created the post on my blog that I will be working to rank...
make money with google
I intended to use an article from the fiver gig in update 1 (above)... but it was not good at all, I had to re-write 90% of it and even delete a big chunk of it just to get it to make sense.
I am going to NOT recommend this provider for blog content. The reviews were very high so I was shocked at the poor quality of the article.
2) I ordered 50 social bookmarks and also 2 articles to be written and submitted to ezinearticles.
Here's the gigs:
krh83: I will submit your website to atleast 50 social bookmarking site for $5 at Fiverr.com
(I know this is the same provider I did NOT recommend above, but this is strictly for link juice, so content quality is not as important)
These two gigs should help get my post on the map with google
Update 3 - March 3, 2011
(My new page has been indexed though, so that is progress!
If I type in "make money with google important" then my site is listed in the results.)
The bookmarking gig above was done quickly and I believe resulted in my new page getting indexed right away.
The ezinearticles gig from above was finished and articles are good quality but I do not believe ezinearticles has picked up the articles. This is the second time I have ordered an article plus ezinearticles submission and have only received the articles and no proof that ezinearticles has picked it up and it's live. Will be sending a follow up message to this provider... if they are platinum account, it should be live very quickly, no?!
Now that the new post is indexed, I also ordered two article marketing gigs to start building a steady flow of backlinks... Here are the new gigs ordered:
octars: I will submit your article to my UAW unique article wizard and article cartel accounts for $5 at Fiverr.com (UAW Submission)
Fiverr (AMR Submission)
Update 4 - March 4, 2011
I've been checking the top 500 results using scroogle.org and I am no where in site.
My on page seo is right on. My links are steadily building. Just need more time. Plus, I am thinking I need to mix in some social media links - i.e. twitter. Going to create an account and connect to my site.
I ordered two more gigs from fiverr...
codeseo: I will provide 10,000 live backlinks for $5 at Fiverr.com
Update 5 - March 22, 2011
Ranking without quotes: N/A
Ranking with quotes: #25 (scroogle.org)
I have a bit of an update: I am no where on the board yet for my primary term without quotes but my term WITH "quotes" around it, I am #25 when I check scroogle.org
This is a good sign. I think my links just need time to stick and be found by google.
From my experience, it can take 2 to 3 months for google to reward you for your efforts. So I am just being patient and working on using a variety of linking methods... articles, social bookmarking, profile links, blog comments and very soon I will add video links to the mix.
If you have any recommended fiverr providers, let me know!
Update 6 - March 23, 2011
Ranking: 26!!!! (I am finally on the board
I few days ago I ordered a twitter gig, not for traffic but just for google's robot's sake.
I have other sites that are linked to twitter accounts and they get CRAZY robot hits.
I thought it couldn't hurt and what do you know... I am finally showing up for my term.
Coincidence? I don't think so. I had built plenty of links right off the bat - then I let google know that my site is a "hot" topic by having it mentioned on twitter. The search engines go crazy over twitter and I used it to my advantage!
Feels good to finally be "in the race".
Now let's see how long it will take me to move onto page 2.
Update 7 - April 24, 2011
Ranking: 19!!!! Hit page two for the first time finally.
Been a bit lazy on this challenge and only ordered 1 new gig in the last month...
Bounced around a lot after this order but have now just appeared on page two for the first time.
Just remember everyone that their is no "magic" gig that will boost you.
I think it's simply a matter of variety and consistency. Plus great on page seo of course!
