Writing Your Marketing Article (500+ words)
This article should be of high quality with the right combination of keywords. This will give your article a good chance to rank higher on its own. I always select three keywords and I do ensure that the article looks natural after combining those three keywords. You can type in your main keyword in Google search and you will find few more suggestions in the search list; you can select two more keywords from that list. You can also make use of Rank Tracker by SEO PowerSuite to filter your keywords. Do ensure to have your main keyword on the first and last paragraph of your article. So your marketing article will be of very high quality with the combination of your main keyword, related keyword and your links.
Writing Your Filler Articles (300+ words)
These filler articles can be anything; not necessary to include your keywords on these articles. If your main marketing article is about “SEO Profiler” or “Market Samurai” then your filler article can be anything related to SEO. It is not necessary to have high quality content in here rather you can make use of any online tools to generate these content.
Writing Author Page (150+ words)
This page is generally about the fake author you will create to set up these Web 2.0 sites. Write a brief description about the author; as I said before make this page looks real and natural. Do have your contact information in this page… Email along with your Social Account ID so people can contact you directly.

This section will get displayed under each article that you post. So write a short bio about yourself; do keep it straight and simple.

- Run a VPN software and mask your IP Address
- Now log into WordPress.com and register your URL
Note: It is not necessary to your exact keyword as URL as it will look like a spam. So select an URL which is related to your main keyword (Example: Market Samurai -> seotools.wordpress.com, seolinkbuilding.wordpress.com etc)
- Select your Blog Title and Description – Add your keyword under description section if possible but it is not mandatory
- Select the right theme and customize your blog as you need. Do connect your social pages to it
- Now log into your account and fill in your profile information completely (Your URL: http://domainname.wordpress.com/wp-admin/). Look at the image for your reference.
- Create “About Author” page and paste the 150+ words article about the author and Publish it
- Publish your first article which would be a filler article of 300+ words. Don’t have any link in your filler articles
- Now schedule your marketing article which contains a backlink of your site to publish the other day. Publishing article needs to be done the right way; never publish all your articles at once. Rather publish one article every day or two. To add more authority to this article; add a link towards a high authority site (E.g. WordPress, Wikipedia, FaceBook etc).
- Do the same for your filler articles now and publish it randomly every day or every alternate day
- Add as many relevant pictures & videos to each article as you can. One at the top and one in the middle; also add the video at the end of each article. This is just to make your site more natural rather than for just SEO purpose
