This is a thread to detail my current website project. A bit about me, A bit about me, Unlike a lot of people here who start journey threads, I've actually had some success with internet marketing in the past. Back when you couldn't move for content-locked websites (about 2010-2011 I think) I made a bit of money with content lockers. Not sure how much exactly without looking but my historic earnings on one network are over ten thousand dollars, to give you an idea. Here's the catch... I was young and dumb and really lucked my way into making money by uploading videos with a link to a content-locked page. It didn't take much smarts. But a Youtube was set-up back then in such a way that you could rinse and repeat (or automate it as I did) and you couldn't really fail. Being young and dumb as I was, I really took the situation for granted and would lounge around all day. Anyway, Google really changed things around at some point. They kept brandishing the ban hammer. We played more than a few rounds of whack-a-mole. And after a while I was spent. They got too smart and my accounts and videos (and earnings by extension) slowly dried up. It's a couple years later and I come back a couple years smarter and more driven. I've worked in an office. Had good experiences but really not for me. I realise now what I had and what I could have again (and more of) if I play my cards right. I've always kept a close eye on the world of internet and affiliate marketing (but made excuses and was too worn out at the time to maintain any projects) and now I'm ready to have one last hurrah. My immediate goal is to make $500 a week. I don't necessarily need to make that much to continue down this path but that's the marker for now. So, I'll bring you up to speed on the project while being vague. I've created a website in a high competition niche. Affiliates and affiliate networks in the industry generally work on an on-going rev share basis although some CPA models are available. The website will feature product reviews as well as how-to and informative pages/posts, ie. "which x lets you do y" type pieces In the past week I created the website, wrote 20 plus pages (about 25,000 words without counting) and optimised it as best I know how The website is a uk one and will target primarily British users on mobile devices. This may change in future Most of the website has been indexed by Google So far I've made the grand sum of zero and have had about 1 genuine visitor. I plan to add one to three pages to the website each day I'll regularly post my activities in this thread to hold myself accountable and provide running updates on rankings, earnings and so on.
