June Update: I have been getting a lot of inquiries as to the progress of this case study. Unfortunately the industry this case study is related to has run into some problems with regards to the FSA. The company I partnered cannot accept any more leads until the issues are resolved. Therefore I have put this project on hold until I get the green light. In the meantime have focused resources elsewhere and I am looking to test these tools in a different, more stable niche. Apologies.
Just thought I’d drop a quick update. Pretty busy at the moment with projects which is great, but means I have less time to do fun stuff like write this blog.
That said, I am in the process of a putting together a new case study that will look at two sites in the same niche being ranked by different methods.
One is driven by pure GSA Search Engine Ranker links, in a similar manner to my last case study, although in theory I’ve learned a bit more since then and my site lists have grown somewhat.
The second will be using a tier one consisting of RANKwyz web 2.0 blogs which will be powered up by GSA SER links. I am still pretty new to Rankwyz and have been busy building out 3 blog networks in different general topics.
This case study will help me learn to use it further and hopefully see how effective building blog networks in this way is.
These new sites are in a financial lead generation niche, which is again a pretty aggressive field so it will be interesting to see what the results are. They are highly lucrative niches though so worth the work.
Both sites are up and running and I am just finishing off some content. This time I am using more unique material for the filler pages which most of it I am outsourcing to iWriter. (Tip: Pay the extra couple of bucks and use elite writers only. The quality difference is huge and it saves the ball ache of trying to get things rewritten…)
Progress So Far
The GSA Search Engine Ranker site is indexed already and ranks 65th for its top big money keyword. I have targeted quite a few others as well. I have started to drip feed tier one links.
The Rankwyz site is a week behind content wise and has no links built yet – but the Rankwyz blog network is being indexed and maturing in the background, so it balances out for when I do link it all up…once I work out how to do it!
Anyway, I’ll keep you updated.
