Basically I get to send them my keyword(s), url(s) and then get a report each month. You know the ones you see here, the google blaster, the google annihilator, etc.
So to that end, I have purchased 5 similar .com domains. All are the exact same words, they all have a hyphen, the hyphen just moves. Each .com has a hyphen. My goal was to make the domain as similar as possible to eliminate that from tainting my test.
I have also ordered 25 unique articles, 5 for each site, and all 5 sites will be hosted in different ip address hosting accounts so google will view each one as competition for each other.
Right now I am waiting on the articles, so until then, I can choose the services. I have three I am pretty sure about, but could be swayed on two of them, which means we have room for at least 2 if not 4 more based on suggestions here.
At this point due to budget restraints, and to keep all things equal, we will be looking at services which cost less than $100/month and special consideration will be given for those less than $75/ month. Obviously I will be weighing out what I get for the money spent. I am also open to any provider wanting me to include them for a discount of their fee. If you think your service can stand up to the test, by all means, pm me.
I am not trying to hijack the Electron Plumber, or rain on his parade. I am just doing this test so I can find the best service for me, and I thought others would appreciate it.
My goal is to run for six months and give weekly or semiweekly updates. The frequency will be determined by the results. If I am not getting much movement week to week, no since in wasting everyone's time.
Please share your suggestions and or questions if you have any.
