First off... Please negativity isn't allowed in this thread LOL I already have enough things to worry about. Alright now here is my story... I just graduated from my Bachelors so now I have a lot of spare time and I will invest it in IM and working out. My last journal wasn't a complete fail I mean I did get to make 2-3 bucks a day fairly consistent but that was the Youtube game and I am ready to explore other forms of IM. The reason I am going another route instead of video marketing is mainly because Youtube proved too unstable for me, when I got videos doing good they got taken down or they stopped getting views for whatever reason. The scary thing about Youtube is that your whole marketing efforts can come crashing down in a matter of seconds, not saying other IM marketing is any less risky... I mean I just read Monopolly's journal and I can see that with the Penguin google update his sites plummeted too -btw sorry for bro, you will get back in no time- but anyways this time around I am gonna try Facebook marketing using Fanpages. I did my studying, how to do SEO to Fanpages etc. honestly I don't know if any of that stuff I learned is relevant after the recent google change but I am gonna give it a shot anyways. So please refrain yourself of posting negative stuff here as I already have my fair share of doubts. So I started two niche Facebook pages properly tagged and everything I filled them up with content, pictures etc.. Both pages kw's are just under 50k one is medium competition and the other is low competition, I monetized one with Clickbank and the other with CPA. I hired off fiverr someone to do a linkwheel for each, press release and some high pr backlinking. I guess I am waiting now for those fiverr gigs to come through they are all in process, and then I guess I'll have to wait for them to make any effect on my pages as far as google ranking goes. I hope to get to the number one spot but I don't know how many gigs I will need, I don't want to over do it I heard a lot of sites got affected by over optimizing or backlinking. And I am new to this so I will just see how that goes and take it from there. That being said I will update as soon as I see any progress or changes, Ive heard it takes about 2 weeks for SEO optimizing to take effect. See you guys!
