    Firstly, a little about myself. I'm a 15 year old student from Estonia, Ive been dealing with internet marketing for approximately 7 months now. I haven't had much success due to low commitment during my first months and sticking to only one method. I discovered FileIce and was amazed about the average CPA so I sticked with that. I made anywhere from $50-$200 a month with barely any work - just uploading videos daily. I'm extremely fond of internet marketing as I'm from a rather poor family and am trying my best to support my mom with my earnings as she has a pretty crappy job and we're struggling financially.

    Recently I discovered blackhatworld and the site truly is a goldmine, the resources are amazing and the community overall is amazing. A few of the journals here were extremely motivating ( thec00kchris, ilovechucktaylor ) and I've decided to open my own as well.

    A few reasons for opening my journal include in but are not limited to :

    • Improve commitment, I'll take it as a duty to update this thread daily
    • Gain more motivation towards working harder and harder
    • Keep track of my progress
    • Attempt to help others by explaining what I do, might broaden other newbies point of view for methods etc
    I've got a fair bit of basic knowledge regarding SEO, making websites, PPD, keyword research, adsense and video marketing.
    I've also gathered up a little bit of tools that have benefited me and hopefully continue to do so in the future :

    • ScrapeBox
    • Hostwinds Ultimate Webhosting
    • Hostwinds Windows VPS for running tools etc overnight and faster
    • Mass Video Blaster
    • Video Marketing Blaster
    • A little bit of money to expirement with and get resources like youtube accounts etc ( from previous earnings )
    I was getting approximately 1500 UV a day recently on one of my PPD sites and making an average of $10-20 a day with 300ish clicks and 20 or so downloads. But here's the part I realised one of my biggest mistakes so far.

    I'd put all my eggs in one basket, all my traffic came from youtube - old videos made manually, and results of MVB etc.

    Recently the mobile view exploit tools were released and I boosted a few of my older videos that were ranking good - attempting to climb even higher in rankings. Sadly a few days later ( 13th march ) those videos got taken down, along with every single video which had my site in the description, I lost over 400 youtube accounts used on several different private proxies, my own IP and my VPS. That killed my traffic completely hence my earnings crashed as well.

    I sort of lost my motivation due to that, so the next few days I had some serious thinking to do. I decided to not give up as that'll get me nowhere..
    A day later I bought a MNS from from sterday here, got the keyword and all that set up already and am looking forward to giving adsense and SEO a try. Once I get my site I'll get a little more knowledge regarding SEO optimized articles, onsite SEO and how to pick keywords.

    Once that's done, I'll try my best to rank it and test out different SEO plans to see which works the best for me and seems easiest. I have a few older domains for PPD related keywords - after my MNS is cllimbing I'll start working on those as well to keep up my PPD earnings as well as working on the adsense micro niche site and perhaps starting up another one if I manage to rank that one well.

    Another thing I'll be trying untill I get my micro niche site is ready is ClickBank. Going to try promoting a few products via youtube with the help of Video Marketing Blaster and Mass Video Blaster. If that works out, I'll carry on with that.

    I'll do my best to update daily. The first update should come today as I'm planning to do a fair bit of work today regarding the ClickBank idea.


    All the best,
    WhitePassion

    What you've accomplished so far is already really impressive. And your English is really good too, considering you're a non-native speaker.

    Wish you the best of luck and I'll definitely be watching this thread!

    Thanks for the support.
    I don't really have it all planned out yet, I've got to experiment with different things for now as I've always been with just PPD. Adsense seems to be the most stable method but I've noticed that adsense bans are kind of random..One clickbomber and you're done..

    Quick update :

    My English is probably good due to the fact that I've spent A LOT of time on the internet on several different forums, online games and all that. It's one of my favourite things actually, I tend to think a lot in English nowadays, it's starting to become like my main language at home :p

    Well, I haven't done much today. I created video details for a clickbank product, downloaded some videos with MVB and am about to leave them uploading on VPS overnight. Didn't have any free time, had breakdance for 4 hours and then went to celebrate my spring break from school with a few mates. Tomorrow I plan to do a lot, main problem at the moment is waiting for my MNS to be finished so I can start working on articles to publish in the near future and for article submissions.

    Normally with journeys, when i read peoples first post i think "Not this again" but you seem to have the hang of the basics of IM which most people who post these threads don't, plus you have seen a little success.

    PPD = Pay Per Download
    The user has to complete a survey or some type of mobile offer casually before they can download your file, average payments are around $0.60 to $1.50 per download but can be up to $15, atleast with FileIce..

    Day 1

    Today I've done a little research on different clickbank products and uploaded 120+ review videos about a product and put my CB link in the description. I've also re-uploaded a few best performing niches for PPD, already generating a little more traffic again, slowly attempting to get back to where I was before the mass ban. Probably going to upload some more PPD related videos tonight and go to bed, it's getting late here.

    FileIce earnings for the day :

    More info on yesterday :
    I didn't manage to do any extra work yesterday, fell asleep quite early because I wasn't feeling too good. Finished the FileIce day with $6 total. Reached 325 visitors on site that day.

    Day 2

    Haven't been doing too much today as I'm quite sick, was putting together a SEO plan for my soon to be ready MNS. Most likely going to be doing all of the article writing myself and concentrating on article submissions and web 2.0s. Uploaded 75ish videos for one of my hottest niches, hope they get ranked high again. Did another 50 videos for two new niches I thought of, quite small audience but that also means low competition.
    The FileIce day is at $3.85 so far, starting up slowly again. Traffic is at 400 hits today, so a small increase compared to yesterday and the statistics reset in about two hours. Going to take some time to reach what I had before the 13th.
    Still haven't received my last months payment from FileIce, they had their paypal limited and are still struggling with paperwork.. Hope they resolve that soon.

    Tomorrows plans are to not sleep untill 3 pm like I did today and actually get some work done. I'm gonna reupload 30ish videos for each of my niches that I had up before the 13th, first with video marketing blaster titles keywords and descriptions and then with the original details of the ripped videos but my own picked keywords which I picked out using googles keyword tool instead of youtube ( easy way to get ranked on google with a video )
    Oh and an interesting fact : Google webmaster tools says that I have 1825 inbound links from youtube, so that's approx how many vids I have (had). It's probably around 300 now as most were banned.
    Had 4 hops on clickbank, the review videos are starting to get some views slowly :p

    May I ask you, in what way are you uploading all those videos? And measures you are taking not to get banned..? Cheers and wish you luck with the journey.

    @Cyberflax

    I'm using mass video blaster to upload these, if you would've read my first post wholely you would've realised thi smost likely <.<
    As for the measures to not getting banned - I've tested dozens of youtube account providers and have found one who has amazing PVA accounts at a reasonable price.
    I also stick with a decent amount of videos per acc - 4 to 10
