    Hello, I'm a frequent blackhatworld browser but never poster. My main forums of browsing are the journey forum and money making forum where I like to get new ideas and keep myself motivated.

    About my objective:

    I have set a date of February 2017 to leave my job and pursue my dream of travelling without the scrimping.


    How I plan on achieving this:

    While on paper my dream may seem simple, but it will require a regular income of what I am aiming for is £5000 / Month. With my main objective is to earn the most of the payment through adsense and the rest with click bank products, membership and amazon dropshipping.


    What I have done so far:

    My current efforts have lead me to pick a very evergreen niche, with high competition but with high CPC. I think in the UK the average monthly search for the keyword is around 29,000 with an average CPC of £4.

    The domain I have purchased was unfortunately a .IM domain name, however the reason I purchased it was because it is keyword.com and for example if I was targeting bicycles with would be bicycle.im so it looks pretty authoritative.

    I have wrote two articles, 1 containing around 800 words and the other around 300 words. On each article I have uploaded around 3 images with related long tail save names and different alt text and linked out to 3 authoritative websites on each. I have also used <strong></strong> on a few phrases which would hopefully bring some long tails in.


    My initial strategy

    The strategy I am following is very unorthodox to what I would normally do, I first wrote up around 40 keywords relating to my niche and put them through a tool called Keyword Researcher which searched through Yahoo/Bing, Google, Amazon and Youtube and collected related keywords. Then I put them into Google Keyword Researcher and downloaded the ideas and put the latest list through the software and google again. I then downloaded around 40,000 keywords placed them in excel, deleted all keywords that received no traffic and any that was less than 4 different words. I then sorted them to display keywords that only received 10 searches a month.

    I will now be selecting these searches and checking how hard they are too rank, and most of them that I have checked have maybe 1 or 2 websites with slightly related content.

    So each article I will produce for the next 100, will only be receiving 10 searches a month. My reasoning for doing this that before I start doing manual linking campaigns I want natural organic traffic that I will be watching in google analytic and once a page starts getting a fair few visits then I will create a few link backs to it.

    For the back linking profile I will be mainly submitting to reedit, writing on related forums, Q&A site replies and twitter and facebook sharing.

    I will be currently updating the website with 1-3 posts a day depending on time constraints but I can average a 800 word post in around 50 minutes.

    The types of posts I will also be creating will mainly be articles but will also do some product reviews which at a later date I will link into a store on my website where I will dropship from amazon with, using their prime 2 day delivery.


    Why am I posting a journey?

    The main reason for me posting a journey is to keep myself motivated so that I can look back hopefully and see progression, and if any methods that I follow work to let others use them. I will try to update this journey once every 2-3 days and will reply as best as I can.

    Current updates
    Updated the Wordpress theme to make the content easier to read and for better viewing on smaller devices.

    Posted 2 more articles, around 880 words each
    Created a twitter account, followed 140 users and had 30 follow backs. Sent 3 tweets - 1 with a image and 2 with niche related videos.

    No reports of any traffic, will not expect any until I nearer the 70 post mark.

    next goal for 22/03/15
    My next goals are:
    Post 7 more articles with minimum 800 words.
    Review 2 items
    Follow another 400 twitter accounts and tweet 30 times

    i have thought about not sharing any of my content on social media on any platform until I have reached a minimum of 1000 twitter followers and Facebook Page Followers, my reasoning behind this is to allow every post a chance at gaining more retweets and shares, otherwise If I'm sharing them when I have hardly no followers , I won't be getting any sharing or sharing momentum going.

    Changes to the current targets for 22/03/15
    After reading about the importance of internal links, I am currently creating quality inner posts that will link to the existing pages with a relevant long tail anchor that relates to the keyword that that particular page is aiming to rank for.

    An example for this is:

    Main Post - This will be about how good red cars are

    then i will create more posts around the premise of "why red cars are better for lazy people" then i would link back to the main post with a phrase such as "only red cars are good enough". And so on.

    I have checked the rank of the first post I created and it is sitting at 77 in Google. I will create 4 inner site back links to this page and report back if there is any serps movement.

    So for the goals they will change to:
    Create 2 new keyword targeting posts, and create 24 posts for inner linking (4 to each of my current pages).
    Continue with twitter, so follow another 300 users and tweet 30 times.
    I will also create one main review for a product, and then look at creating 5-7 other posts for inner site linking to that review, maybe only do the planning for this

    I would also like to thank everyone for their support in following my journey.

    Tweeting 30 times a day? People will get annoyed by seeing too many tweets, and they'll unfollow you. Just tweet 5 to 7 times a day.
