The Long Awaited LFE RecapWednesday, July 7, 2010 14:14
Whew.. things have been really interesting since I last posted about my horrible month in April. Revenue down, projects failing, IRS problems that nonsense seemed endless. Finally matters are getting resolved and overall things are almost back to normal. Which means I should be able to start posting again. I have 5 topics I plan on posting about but first I wanted to do the LFE recap that everyone wants.
If any of you missed out on whats going on so far here is the short and simple. I bought Link Farm Evolution and challenged my self to pay off the cost of the program within the 30 day trial. I started a new site and went to town. The site ended up making $750 or so before CJ shut me down for having a brand name in the domain. They then reversed all the sales I had for the program and banned me from using it again. I ended up having to go though 3 domain names and finally got back in the program with their in house program.
I then posted how my 30 day challenge failed since I ended up losing all the money I had made. Since I had gone though 3 domains and 301′s and a big mess I could not say how well my linking plan had worked. I still can’t comment on the links as a whole since I don’t even have the blog names I made a few months back. What I do have is a brand new domain that’s got two other domains 301′ed to it and a big mess of links.
So here is where I stand today. First page for my targeted keyword (8), generic domain with no keyword in it, and a page rank of 2. Truthfully I am pretty shocked. The linking for this project turned into a big rats nest of dead links, 301′s, and web2.0 pages.
My plan was to build several 2.0 pages (articles, squdoo, hubpages, etc) and then build LFE blogs that linked to them. They in turn would link to my site laundering the links a little so it was not so oblivious. I managed to get the squidoo and hubpage up and I had LFE make me 500 blogs (380 worked). I then had these 380 blogs post about my topics and had one of the 2.0 pages in its blogroll. I also had a few of the blogs just have my main site in the blogroll so they had one of three possible links. I also had LFE pligg each of the blogs I made, I think it was 20 times per blog post.
This is when I ran into my problems with CJ and ended up kinda scrapping the project because it took more than the 30 days to get the new domains up and to get accepted into the private offer. I didn’t see any use to continue with the site if I was going to get denied for the affiliate program. Things halted and I moved on.
It wasn’t until you guys started to ask me about my recap that I took the time to see if “time” had played a major factor or not. Like all SEO projects it did. The site isn’t ranking in the cash as well as I would like but since I joined the private offer I have made $215 in earnings from my site. This is all SEO traffic because I have long since moved on to other projects. So if you want to turn my 30 day challenge into say a 6 month challenge then its been a great success. With a bit more work I could continue to work on this site and easily increase its income and want to know how I am doing to do it? LFE.
I have actually repurchased LFE since my challenge and I hope that it will help me with this site and a few new sites that I am going to be working on. LFE takes a LOT of work to get running properly. Its got a huge learning curve and its going to take you months to make your own lists to get it working at 100% like it should. But I think its worth it, I own the program and I have several sites ranking that can back up my claims. You can never have to many links or to many tools to help you make them. Check it out at LinkFarmEvolution.com give it 30days and see if you can get better results than I did.
