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.
