    Hi everybody :)
    A little introduction about myself. I?m a French guy who is 19 years old. Last year I graduated from high school but with one year late because I had some personal issues where I made the dumb decision not to work during this year and obviously, I failed to pass? This period has passed and now, I?m more ready than ever to succeed.

    You might wonder why I said 5 years. Well, simply because I plan to finish my study in 5 years from now. If I succeed to earn a decent and stable earning through internet, I might consider going for a part time job (we never know?) and complete it with the money I earn from internet.

    Well anyway, I?ve never been a very talkative person, so I will explain what methods I?ve already tried and their results.

    Youtube + PPD = more or less 100 ?
    Facebook + Clickbank = 20 ? (I still have 2 pages, one is 2.5k likes and this other is 5.5k likes)

    What I want to try:

    Create some micro niche sites first and then create some authority sites, and this is what I?ll talk about in my journey.
    My problem is choosing the right keyword, so I'll probably start my MNS with the help of a freelancer, and once I have more experience, I'll do it all by myself.

    Note: During this journey, I?ll give more importance to my studies than to the internet marketing so maybe I won?t be able to post daily update.

    My English is not the best so feel free to correct my grammar, I would appreciate it ;)

    Your English is pretty good so do not worry about it. Some advice I would recommend is starting with your authority site first and
    go ahead and buy your name so all of it has time to age. Good luck Etanor :)

    I agree, nothing wrong with your English. Just make sure you target the correct keywords before putting all the effort in. Good luck.

    Why would you recommend me to start with an authority site? Maybe I should get some experience with MNS before, to understand how ranking and choosing the keyword really works before putting all my efforts in the authority site and realize I won't earn anything from it?
    Thank you :)

    Thanks :)

    I think what he is saying is that age really helps with authority, so if you want to make an authority site, you need to do a little leg work on finding a decent niche and some good keywords that go along with it, buy the domain, maybe put an article or two up on it, then let it sit and age. When you get to the point where you want to let it sit and age that is when you go get some MNS's up and going. Once you go back to the authority site, the age will help it out then and you won't have to wait for the "aging" process at that point.

    Your English is fine dude! Man, I can tell you a lot of interesting niches to work are products or things you or your family need or use everyday. start looking around and make a list. Go to the store and look around too. Go to Amazon and see what they have under their categories. Think about the many types of services in your area. There are millions of niches that are low competition. I find new ones constantly everyday that I don't have time to work. Just put the effort in and organize the process with a system. You will narrow it down and make the right choice. :)

    Oh yeah I understand now :p
    I'll register a new domain as soon as I have found a good niche for an authority site :)

    This is what I did today and I guess it worked :p (see at the bottom of the post)

    This is what I'm doing :)




    Ok so a quick update for today. I've finally found a niche. It's about something we use everyday, the competition looks pretty low :

    With "" : 38,000 results
    Allintitle : 2,800 results

    1rst competitor : 10 backlinks, 50 pages indexed
    2nd competitor : Youtube video, 2 backlinks
    3rd competitor : 1 backlink, 50 pages indexed
    4th competitor : An authority site
    5th competitor : 125 backlinks, 140 page indexed


    I bought the EMD.org because the .com was not available.
    I'll start tomorrow to post some articles.

    Let me know if you think it's going to be easy for me, someone who never did any link build, to rank it.

    Cool, now don't start link building at all for some time. Just set up social profiles and create content. Start your links with authority first. Keep us updated!

    Once your content is indexed and your social profiles are setup and you have been actively building them for a few days, then start getting links.

    Thanks :)

    2nd day :


    I created the site using wordpress (but I can't find a good theme so I'll work on it tomorrow too. If you know some pretty free themes, let me know :p). I added a static home page + a contact-us page and another page containing an article with more than 800 words + images :).
    I also created a google+ account, and that's it for today.
    I lost a lot of time trying to find my old adsense account so I hope the google's support will be useful...

    3rd day :

    I added a new article with 600 words and I switched the theme to the original one but I changed the colors. I also applied for amazon's affiliate program :). Three of my pages are now indexed by google which I think is great.

    I won't do anything else because I have a lot of homework to do...



    If you have any question, ask me :)

    4th and 5th day :

    I finally got my adsense account back...
    I think my website is now finished, I won't change a lot of things, I just have to wait for it to be totally indexed by google and then I'll start doing some quality backlinks :)

    6th day :

    All my pages are indexed so I can start building backlinks even though I'm not an expert on this subject :p but I'll do my best :). I won't do anything more today because I'm very busy IRL :/

    7th day :

    Built few backlinks on high PR site, but I'm not sure if I'm doing it the right way. If an experienced person could give me some tips, that would be great. If you PM me, I could tell you exactly what I did, so, you will be able to tell me if what I did was good or not.

    There won't be any updates for the next 3 days because I won't be at home (I'll try to answer to my PM with my phone...), so i'll let things going :) maybe I'll have a surprise ahah :p
