    Hello BHW. I have been in the internet marketing scene for almost a month now. I discovered IM by accident through a computer forum and it just felt like I discovered a huge unknown jungle!

    One of my biggest discoveries in IM was BHW, warriorforum & Zeekrewards.

    P.s: I prefer BHW over warriorforums. I think WF is just too "whitehat" for me :p

    The purpose of this thread is to stay focus and focus on one method to make $ and not lose track and wander of finding other quick methods to make $ online!
    My goal here is to build a website/s that will generate revenue.
    I'm not very experienced in the IM scene but hopefully I will be of some help to the BHW community. I will try my best to help out wherever I can.
    I am also looking for advice from people who are more experienced in IM as well.

    Enough of the stories about myself, let my journey begin !


    My Game PLAN !

    Traffic: SEO (Main)
    Monetization: AdSense (Main), CPA & Amazon (if my adsense gets banned. I'm still waiting for approval)
    My Arsenal of Tools: Market Samurai, Traffic travis. Gonna load more up soon!


    Day 1 !

    FULL day of INTENSIVE keyword research. I'm not sure how intensive but around 6 hours. I use Market Samurai, Traffic travis, Google Keyword Tool for my keyword research.

    Some keywords I found that I think are quite decent. I dug up around 100 potential keywords with almost the same stats. Here are 3 of those 100s :-

    KW 1
    [​IMG]

    KW 2 (5400 global search, 0.84 CPC)
    [​IMG]


    KW 3 (2400 global search, 2.93 CPC)
    [​IMG]


    I found out some amazing seo methods here on BHW especially from 2 bhw threads that I keep referring back to and I will be implementing those methods to my website.


    Day 2 !

    Going to do more keyword research and hopefully enough time to put up some web 2.0s
    (to be cont.)

    =============================================

    My daily earnings:
    ZR - $5.18
    Website - $0 (still under-going development)

    Good to see you are already making some money off ZeekRewards, and taking action when one of the biggest mistakes in IM is not trying anything. I wish you the best of luck!

    First of all, Good Luck and wish you much success....

    I'm a noob as well and trying to keep up with the threads that have people in similiar situations as me. I have 6MNS + 1 Authority Type site using adsense on all of them. They are new only few days old.

    If you would like to share the threads with good SEO tips, that would be awesome. i'm sure it would help a lot of people that are new and don't know how to search or look at the stickies lol

    Just got back from college and going off to see a doctor soon. My goal today is to :-

    1) More keyword research.

    Yes, only that. I will be finishing my keyword research today and get some domains on Day 3. So far, I got 100+ potential keywords in my bag.

    I will post an update on my kw research at the end of the day. Cheers !

    Sorry for spamming bhw with another 'journey' thread.

    Yes, those are all exact matches from GKT.

    ZR is a company which pays you to advertise for them. Just 1 advertisement and they will pay you daily.

    I think I'm the one needing help here :p But i will post my seo techniques here on this thread. I have no experience with seo and this is coming straight from a 100% newbie.

    Btw, are those 6 mns under the same niche as your authority site?

    Thanks!

    I Understand about the placing advertisements for ZR, But the more ads you submit in a day the more you make? Is it only limited to classified ads? can i use senukex? whats the deal with the 'points'?

    You can only post 1 ads per day. The more ads you post won't make you more $. It will still make the same amount as you would make if you post 1 ad.

    You can post anywhere as long as you just submit the url back to zeekrewards. But I suggest you just post on classified ads, its much easier.

    You don't need senukex. Just copy+paste work. Only 1 min per day is all you need to get those daily earnings.

    In Zeekrewards. More points = More $ from daily earnings.

    Example: You got 100points. You may only earn $1.70 per day.

    But if you got 1000 points. You earn $17.00 per day.

    Hope that cleared any of your doubts.

    Day 2

    Concluded my keyword research and ended up with 300+ keywords. Keywords volumes are from 5000 - 100 exact searches. Searches are not my first priority when doing my research. Since I'm using adsense to monetize my site, I'm using SEOV to prioritize which keywords I want to rank for first.

    I set a min.of $400 SEOV. For those who don't know what's SEOV = Traffic x CPC.

    Besides SEOV, I also choose my keywords using how many BLP and on-page seo my top 10 competitor has. Using market samurai to analyze my top 10 competitors for that keyword. I only got for keywords with 8/10 with green BLP on MS and 8/10 with green on-page seo.

    Eg: If 5 out of 10 of the top 10 have red indicators on their BLP or on-page seo, I'll go to another keyword.

    ==============================================
    Daily earnings :-
    ZR: $5.32
    AdSense: $0


    Day 3
    I'm going to be setting up my domains and writing up contents myself for the websites. The hard part begins...

    Day 4

    1. Wrote 5 more articles for each websites.

    2. Applied CTR themes to all 5 of my websites. No AdSense on them yet. Waiting for Google's approval. I have been thinking whether should I use heatmap, prosense or bluesense theme for my websites.
    Tried them all out but I still think CTR theme is the best out of all the 4.

    3. Did on-page seo for all my 10 posts. I use SEO Pressor for to measure my on-page seo and aim for min 80%.
    I haven't start my off-page seo yet but I plan on using backlinks genie free trial or buildmyrank free trial to start off my off-page seo campaign.

    What I did for my on-page seo is Title, h1,h2,h3 tags, meta tags, keyword density min 1%, input 1 image with alt tag to my target keyword, link my article with another one of my article on the website.
    Anything else I should do for on-page seo? Plugins I use for my on-page seo are all in one seo pack, platinum seo pack and seopressor.

    Edit: Signed up for Build My Rank for 15 days free trial for my off-page seo. To maximise the use of it since I'll be out of town for 2 days.

    Day 5
    I will be out of the country for 2 days, so I won't be updating.


    Daily earnings
    ================================================
    ZR - $3
    AdSense - $0

    ================================================

    Edit: Things to do after I get back from my trip: 1. Categorize my website 2.creating a silo structure as my site layout 3. finalizing small little stuffs on my website.
    After all those is done, I shall begin doing some off-page seo. Right now, my off-page seo is from Build My Rank.

    If I'm free on the day I arrive back from my trip, I`ll write 5 more articles on another keyword I'm targeting on my website.

    I'm really taking things slowly, Day 6 and I haven't being off-page seo! Currently, I have 2 out of 5 websites index. I predict I'm going to get all my sites index later in the morning.

    Heard many sites with CTR theme taking a hit especially with big G's latest algo update. Just my opinion. Good luck!

    I don't really know much about ZeekRewards but it has MLM scheme written all over it. Be careful with them.
