    Hi,
    This is my first thread, but I've been reading BHW for quite some time. I will not go into my personal situation but yes I do want to start making money from my website.

    Background:
    • I have a brand new domain name, made a few posts and performing some on-page SEO (I'm not great at it) - using PHPBUILT's threads (thanks for sharing your amazing knowledge).
    • My keywords are between 4 to 8 words, low competition and targetting people looking for information.
    • Monetizing probably with Amazon and/or Adsense (only after getting substantial traffic).

    Goal:
    • $1 a day income
    • 500 UVs a day (100% organic)

    Status:
    • Made 20 posts in last 2 weeks (linked to GA and Google Webmaster - its showing pages are ranking between 2 and 50)
    • In first two weeks 1-2 UVs arrived from Google (organic) but since last two days zero UVs

    I'm struggling at the moment, not sure whether the site will get more visitors and what to do next. I don't have paid SERP or other options, also I've not yet started back linking from web2.0s.

    Appreciate any advice, suggestions...

    Thanks,
    tokyofriend

    Get started with the web 2.0s. If your keyword is truly low competition then they will give you a nice boost. Comment on some relevant blogs within your niche as well!

    your going to have to manually start building and linking your site.
    now that you have a nice blog with good content and assuming your ONPAGE Seo is on point
    you need to start building links, social signals, 2.0s, blogging etc to gain auth. to your site.
    Do you have adsense or aff links on your posts?

    Thanks Boomba

    Sure will begin manually linking them as suggested. I have embedded aff links (Amazon) as 'no follow' but no adsense code inserted yet. Thanks

    no problem I would start to read through all of the how tos by reputable members on blog building there are so many.
    best thing is that you are taking action and making it work.
    having a good simple mix of ads will work as long as you have great content and keep with it.

    Cool, glad you are taking action to earn few bucks. $1 per day is fair & cool target, but if you could challenge yourself with some what BIG money, you will get it as BIG.

    Alright, you could let your posts indexed. As soon as the article get indexed, you will get to know the changes in organic traffic. And keep posting valuable, fresh & unique articles with relevant images. The articles must be the one shared by your web site viewers. Hope it helps, Good luck with your Journey ! - BB

    Aim a little higher.. Then you will be disappointed if you make only $2 per day nd aim higher.

    There are a ton of things you can do, but most importantly is to be patient. Ranking takes time.

    Thanks for encouraging me to aim higher. I do want to go $10 a day but first I want to achieve $1 a day. I want to really learn the ropes first - I'm looking at it as a proof of concept.

    Quick update

    Further to your suggestions, especially from DigitalCity, I spent a lot of time reading some of the guides on BHW. This helped me to prioritize KWs and identify my competitors. Thanks to LightningBlitz - you have one of the most detailed information on this topic.

    Status:
    I've made a few more posts (1000+ words), its very time consuming to write it but that's the option I have at the moment. Then I proceeded to build a couple Web2.0s links to inner posts.

    Generally how long does it take to see the bump in results? Using only GA it does not show recent two days traffic stats.

    Well, thanks for updating the thread.

    If writing article by your own seems very time consuming, hire a writer to do the job if & only if you have some budget to spend.

    As I told already, you will get to see the bump for sure as soon as the articles get indexed. It may take some time. I wonder Google should work on with tune the crawling speed ;)
