Baby Girl Clothes Case Study – One Month Review

In my last post I previewed my new baby girl clothes case study as it related to my InfoBarrel Experiment challenge. My challenge was to start treating InfoBarrel like a place where you can make substantial money rather than just a place to generate backlinks. Over the past couple months I have experienced quite an increase in revenue from InfoBarrel and recommend this site to anyone looking to build residual income. You can join InfoBarrel here if you have yet to do so (aff).

To quickly summarize I decided to publicly start posting on this topic and show just how I take a keyword and turn it into a marketing campaign and build it into a substantial cash flow in a relatively short amount of time on the heels of significant leg work.

Baby Girl Clothes - Articles Published

I have posted in the last month 5 money making articles on the topic over on InfoBarrel, 1 money making article on the topic on HubPages, and one money making article on the topic at Snipsly for a total of 7 money articles. The Snipsly article and HubPage articles are two of four “main” supporting articles to my ultimate goal 1000+ word IB article: Baby Girl Clothes and each backlink the main IB article with a relevant anchored dofollow backlink.

My main Baby Girl Clothes article on IB has the main long tail keywords which I’m targeting “cute baby girl clothes”, “trendy baby girl clothes”, and “unique baby girl clothes”. My Hub targets “newborn baby girl clothes” and my Snipsly targets “designer baby girl clothes”.

My four other IB articles which support the main IB article target related keywords all with small but significant money making potential: “cheap unisex baby clothes”, “baby onesies for girls”, “unique baby clothes for girls”, and “funny baby clothes for boys”.

In addition to my Hub and Snipsly articles I have two more “main” supporting articles. I posted a baby girl clothes article on ArticleBlast and a Baby Girl Clothes article on a relevant clothing & fashion blog. Each of my four main supporting articles have between 7-15 backlinks a piece and my four IB supporting articles each have between 3-7 backlinks a piece and my main IB article has a whopping 41 backlinks pointing at it – each from a different location and over half coming from guest posting.

For those that missed how I guest post so easily, check out my previous post on Guest Posting with PostRunner.

First Month Earnings

So that’s a lot of writing and to be honest I haven’t done much to this project in the last 10 days or so – I’m mostly letting everything stew to see how the SERPs react and one month in I can say I’ve already made approximately $7.22 from my seven money making articles combined and that’s with not even adding my Adsense code to Snipsly before a few days ago. It will be fun to see how September earnings for these seven articles fare.

First Month Rankings

My HubPage article is sitting in the #1 spot for its main keyword and in #9 for “cheap baby girl clothes”, Snipsly is sitting in #12 for its keyword. My four supporting IB articles are ranking #13, #10, #100+, and #9 for their keywords. My main IB article’s long-tail keywords are ranking #13, #12, and #28 and my main keyword “baby girl clothes” on IB is ranking #80. This rank has been VERY inconsistent over the course of this first month as it has fluctuated almost daily quite significantly. It has been as high as the teens and as low as the upper 100s… it will be interesting to see this article start seeing consistent rankings week after week.

Potential Residual Income

As I identified on the IB forums I feel this main IB article alone could potentially bring in many hundreds of dollars… possibly as much as $500 a month on its own if it’s in the number one spot. The others could add up to another one or two hundred combined on a monthly basis as well.  Obviously I have a ways to go but this is progress and my earnings are already happening and they will only grow bigger in the coming months.

Going Forward - The Loose Plan

In September I plan on beefing up my supporting IB articles and identifying a fifth & sixth major supporting article on another clothing blog to help improve the rank of my baby girl clothes article. I will also continue to increase the backlink profile of the main IB article and by the end of September I’m sure I’ll see good improvement.

Again – if you haven’t joined Infobarrel make sure you do because the site can offer you a lot of benefit if you put in the work. Make sure to index your IB article feed too – it helps, and never discount the value of proper keyword research and anchored dofollow backlinks. Good luck to you all in your projects and feel free to leave you comments below.

Guest Post With PostRunner At The Keyword Academy

As I promised over on the IB Community forums earlier today I said I would write up a bit of info regarding PostRunner a blog guest posting service made available to members of The Keyword Academy (aff).

I am a member at The Keyword Academy and have been so since March and love it. As I've told others the membership is worth it for the PostRunenr service alone in my opinion however the membership also offers plenty of additional perks especially for the people who are new to internet marketing and content/blog creation.

What Is PostRunner?

PostRunner is a guestposting service that is one of many benefits of being a member of The Keyword Academy. There are a number of benefits like coaching for beginners, and niche selection/keyword tools, videos on how to setup a moneymaking blog/content site, tracking tools to keep organized with your backlinking, and plenty of very experienced members who make a lot of money running blogs and content sites that can answer your questions. These are not the same people you'll find in A-list blogging membership sites; these are mareters rather than bloggers for the most part.

Each of these benefits are amazing on their own right but the bread and butter of The Keyword Academy membership in my opinion is the PostRunner service.

PostRunner is about 1000+ different wordpress blogs owned and maintained by the members of the Keyword Academy - as far as I can tell there are a few thousand Keyword Academy members and rouhgly 1000 blogs hooked into the PostRunner system. I personally have one blog in the system and am contemplating adding a second, other members have none in the system, and other members have multiples. Each blog is owned by the members (like me) and each blog is hosted on seperate hosting accounts - some are monetized and others are not (mine is not monetized).

What Are The PostRunner Rules?

The rule for members is that anyone can post a guest post to any blog in the system and the site owner has the discretion of approving or declining the submission based on the quality of the post and their own persoanl discretion. There are post quality requirements on the system level to guest post as well as post length requirements and maximum link requirements.

The system rules require 100 percent unique content of high quality. No spun or auto-generated content is allowed nor are blog owners allowed to change the link text or add nofollow attributes to the links that guest posters include in their submissions. The guest posting system is designed to be as usefull to the blog owners as it is for the guest bloggers. And because the owners of these blogs use the system for their guest blogging all the sites are high quality and cared for and quality on all posts is generally high.

Most guestposts get accepted on the first attempt. I've posted more than 300 guest posts through the system and I've never had a guest post denied by a blog owner more than once. Keep the quality up and everybody wins. Post Runner really top notch and it makes creating backlink diversity a breeze.

The Keyword Academy (aff) is as white hat as one could possibly be - if anyone is suspected of breaking the rules with their posts or with their blogs they are cut off from the system and since each site is essentially owned and maintained by a different owner on a different hosting plan this doesn't get into trouble as a big blog network in the eyes of the Search Engines. Following Google's rules is critical and the system values these rules more than anything with their passion for quality sites and quality content.

Right now you can only use PostRunner if you are a member of TKA and it is a recurring monthly fee of $33. It is well worth it in my book. First month membership fee is $1 and you can cancel at any time. You can even use postrunner in your first month to try it out and see if it is valuable for you.

If you want to give it a shot I'd love to hear your opinion of the program - My referal link is on my blog in the upper right hand corner of each page or you can click the links to The Keyword Academy in this post.

Currently I use PostRunner to send backlinks to my moneymaking articles over on IB and it's making a hige difference. I've been enjoying my time at IB and am pleased to help out fellow InfoBarrel members.

Also of Note
Many of the people that use Postrunner (outside of the newbies) are big time moneymakers online - many of them are making many thousands of dollars a month posting keyword focused articles to blogs and sites like HubPages and InfoBarrel using the sites on Postrunner to build backlinks and authority to their personal blogs and content articles. This method works and is the reason why so many big time money-makers are mebers. Many are making 2000-5000 a month and PostRunenr is amjor part of their process.

If you want to give PostRunenr a try I'd love to refer you in. Remember the first month is $1 and every month after that is $33 payable by PayPal subscription.

RSS Feed Indexing – Does It Help?

A while ago when I discussed the idea of making sure that your article directory posts get indexed I said that getting your profile pages indexed from these sites would help. After all if your profile page is indexed and crawled by G often enough the links to all the individual articles will be followed as well.

At the time I also mentioned MyBlogLog as a potentially great way to make sure all your blog posts get indexed. I haven’t set up an account for this blog but I have for my main longevity blog. In any event MyBlogLog will take the feed and show the most recent five posts on your profile page linking to each post and giving an excerpt of the posts. This should help in initial indexing however only the first five posts are displayed. Once it drops off the page however you lose the link so that got me think – what other ways were there to do similar things with the feed except maybe I could display more than five posts.


I setup an account here just today and entered my author RSS feeds for my main article marketing accounts and presto, I now have a page over on Feedage that displays my feed of last posts for that site. Each post is truncated and links directly back to the source. Now whenever I post something It will be in the author profile which hopefully should be indexed as well as my Feedage page, which also should be indexed and followed, and if I ever get around to setting up my feeds on MyBlogLog they too will be indexed and followed.

That should be pretty good for getting new posts indexed, especially those pesky article directory posts which I need to be indexed for the backlinks. What do you think of this, huh? Think it could work for you?

Here you can see my creation for my main IB, Hub, GA, EZ accounts with a few more to follow. Ad hopefully this will help with my new Infobarrel Experiment as well as getting me ranking better for baby clothes as I discussed in my last post.
