So far in the challenge, we’ve picked a group of keywords, set up a site and added keyword-relevant content, started building backlinks to one specific page on our site on a regular basis and picked a “backup” keyword group that we can use to repeat the whole process on a second site. Next, we’re going to add a little more oomph to our backlink building.
If you’re familiar with some of my stuff, then you’ve probably heard me talk about “link reinforcement”. This is the principle we’re going to start making use of, next. In case you aren’t yet familiar with the concept, here’s a explanation:
Welcome to part 3 of the IM Impact/100K Blueprint Adsense Challenge! So far, we’ve done the keyword research, set up a site and added some content. We’ve also made sure that Google finds our new AdSense site and done some initial link-building.
Now, it’s time to ramp up our link-building efforts and in today’s update, we’ll also start diversifying just a little bit. More details below.
In part one of the AdSense challenge, we picked keywords and created some initial content on a new site. Now, it’s time we get Google to notice us and start promoting the site.
Before I get to the tasks for the second part of the challenge, a quick note on my own progress:
Welcome to part one of what I simply call “the AdSense Challenge”. First, let me give you a little background info on all this:
Recently, a product called the AdSense 100K Blueprint was recommended to me, I took a look at it and it turned out to be a really good guide on how to properly use AdSense to monetize websites. I liked it so much that I invited the creators of the blueprint to do a webinar for my subscribers and thus, I actively promoted their guide.
And of course, I want to use the strategy described in the guide for myself, as well, so I dusted off my unused AdSense account and set out to build a few sites according to the blueprint… and then noticed that somehow, two weeks had passed and I still hadn’t even started building the first site. To remedy this situation, I decided to set a small challenge for myself and invited my subscribers to join in. More than 100 of them liked the idea and joined and so I decided to run with it and expand the challenge.
Update: this site has been rebranded twice. Below is the post announcing my first rebranding to “im impact” – a name that now clearly looks like a bad idea to begin with.
IM Impact is the new name, new brand and new look for my former marketing blog, RichQuickReview. In this post, I explain the reasons for the re-branding an a bit about the history of this site.
