    My goals are quite simple, and that is to get to $250 a day. This is just a mark I would like to get to that I am setting for myself, though I will have other mini goals and such along the way for myself personally.

    A little about me ;

    I know I am kind of new to this forum, somewhat new to this category of money making in general. Though I have had past experiences with PPD. I remember two summers ago, my friend had showed me a Facebook method with a viral script and I got my event to 1.5 MILLION invites. It was insane, I remember making $80 / hour doing NOTHING at some times. That all lasted about two weeks, and had around $2,500 dollars from that. Though, at the time I was dumb so I never got that money. Sad story for me, believe me or not. After that, I tried the method again, and even months after I tried it again, and they closed me down again and again. Anyways, now to my goals and how I am going to do this.

    Surprisingly, I am going to be going for adsense to gain my revenue and maybe later on some other monetization techniques rather than PPD, but for now just adsense. I will be creating an authority website. Some may say not to go for such a harder site to rank, but I am going for it either way.

    Starting To-Do List ;

    1. Find a topic I am going to make my website around
    2. Figure out what categories I am going to have containing that topic
    3. Get a domain name (preferably with keywords or unique name)
    4. Get hosting and set up WordPress with clean magazine type theme
    5. Make everything good to go!

    Overall goals for along the way until the end ;

    - Complete entire website setup
    - Complete full onsite SEO
    - Work on offsite SEO effectively
    - Make a total of 50 pages of content
    - Make a total of 100 pages of content
    - Make $10 / day
    - Make $25 / day
    - Make $50 / day
    - Make $100 / day
    - Make $250 / day

    Those are my goals for now, or at least what I can think of right now. Will definitely add more soon if needed.

    These are what I have planned to do right now, and I will update with my progress and any troubles I have ran into through out the process.

    Best of luck for your journey! Play safe with AdSense and you should be good.

    Great to see that you have short-term and long-term goals already sorted out. This will keep you on track.

    Good luck with your journey mate! I would recommend buying an authority site for 150$ and rank that one, but you can build one from scratch! For a niche I would suggest something that will never die, like a celebrity or music artist.

    I will be writing my own content, and will pick something I am actually interested in so I will stay very high quality post wise. Until I start making a good amount from sites, I will be doing this myself.

    Yes I will be starting with Adsense to reach my goal, though if other opportunities for monetizing my website come up, I will consider that as well. I am more worried of getting started right now though I will definitely consider other things throughout this journey.

    AdSense is a good way to start out at IM and learn all the SEO on the road to the top. Then, use these learned skills on better and bigger projects.

    I got my domain awhile ago, but having issues with the name servers from my hosting. Just going to have to wait for now, but I will resolve this ASAP.

    Already got my theme I am going to use ready to go as well.
