    Hello everybody!

    Firstly, please pardon my bad English as I'm not a native speaker. I'm also a newbie in the Internet Marketing world, having started only about 5 months back.

    I am starting this thread to keep myself motivated and for accountability reasons.. I also hope this thread will be able to help me to share and also learn more from other experienced members.

    My goal is to get an average of $500 a day earnings with 2 websites. 1 'semi-authority' which is already running and earning me more money, and a new 'authority website'. My target is to reach the $500 a day earning by 31st December 2015.

    To be honest, I've started about 3 websites before.. Which all failed terribly. However that didn't make me quit and I kept on reading, experimenting, reading, experimenting. I can still remember how I spent almost 16-18hours a day from January-April 2015.

    From January-March, I started about 3 websites.. Which all failed as I didn't plan properly, I can't remember exactly but I think I lost about $1000-$1500 on that 3 websites.

    My current semi-authority blog


    However, I got my 'eureka moment' in Mid March and started a new blog (my current semi-authority website). It started to earn money which brings in about $100-$300 a week up to late april.

    Recently for the past 3 weeks, it's been really encouraging. My earnings started to skyrocket and for the past 3 weeks I'm able to earn about $1k a week, with at least $100 earning per day. You can see the picture below..
    Clickbank Earnings report.jpg

    With this website.. My short term goal is to optimize the earnings and make it able to EARN AT LEAST $300 a day. As you can see from the picture above the earnings is not stable and flunctuates between $100 - $300.

    What I Will Do With This Current Blog

    After reading more and more, although I am not a native speaker, I am confident that I know how to do ON-PAGE SEO optimization better and write more engaging articles/reviews. So I will be writing more articles and reviews.

    Some question for experienced members, is it normal for traffic to drop on weekends? And some days, I noticed alot of hops/clicks to my affiliate links.. alot of order form impression, however the conversion is low? Somedays, the hops/clicks are lesser, however my sales/earnings are high.

    Besides writing more articles/reviews, what will you advise me to do so that I can make my earnings stable?

    And with this current blog, I also capture emails by giving a free ebook.. however I must admit that I am not doing so well with the emails leads.. I don't know how to really optimized them to earn more $$$$. I tried to be agressive before by sending broadcast, but many unsubscribe although I get a sale or two. Any recommendations on how to make more money with email list will be deeply appreciated.

    My New Authority Website

    I have also just started a new authority website. I'm doing the best I can to optimized the on-page seo. This website just started about a week ago.

    What I plan to do with it now.. is to write more contents (and also buy some contents but I will edit them to suit my writing style). I plan to have at least 100 HQ articles before I start monetizing them. I aim to get my 100 articles up before July. I will also be capturing emails for this website.
    I will not build backlinks until July, however I will be sending social signals. My goal is to make this website clean and plan the backlinks properly without spamming. Basically I'm giving what google wants, be a valuable part of the internet and provide quality content useful for users.

    I am sure I am doing it better now as my main URL is already indexed and ranked for its keyword within a week of me posting up the homepage with my 2k word article. It's dancing between 70-80 in google. I know this is nothing for most of you, but I am happy as this is the first time I am able to be ranked/indexed by google faster, and WITHOUT any backlinks.

    I have about 6 articles up already, with 3 articles more then 2k words and the other 3 articles with about 1k-1.5k words. I already have another 3 articles ready, however I am not publishing it yet as I have just read about SILO and trying to fully understand it.

    Do you guys have any great reference for silo-ing on wordpress?

    After I've fully understood SILO-ing, I will probably delete the posted articles and repost them again using silo-ing.

    My main goal with this website is to make it a 'super authority' website on a niche within a niche ;) (if you get what I mean, sorry for my bad english) with at least 100 articles before I start to monetize it.

    I am thinking of monetizing it with clickbank again (clickbank is the only thing I know how to work with). Do you guys have any other idea on how I can monetize the website besides clickbank?

    Conclusion
    My short-term goal is to make my current website earn AT LEAST $300 a day, without flunctuations. Long term goal is $500 a day with both websites.
    I will be updating daily or once every 2 days, to keep myself accountable and report what I have done.

    As a newbie, I will really appreciate senior members help and advice. And I really hope to learn a lot from this thread.

    Once again, sorry for my bad english.

    You are earning a very good amount of money for starting out in IM 5 months ago, congratulations!

    If I am not wrong, your traffic should increase on the weekends but I guess it depends on the niche.

    You seem to be a successful person to me because of the success you've had in such a little amount of time. So I know you will achieve your goal.

    Good luck and don't give up.

    Thanks! You should get started, don't worry to make mistake or errors as I believe the best way to learn is by mistakes. I don't believe in luck either.. It's 99% hard work and you will get the 1% luck.

    Thanks! And yes I will never give up! Yes I am confident of myself now, it is a matter of time before i clear $500, I just need to keep going and stay motivated.

    Thanks.. I tried applying for adsense for my current website but it got declined.. Can you really earn alot with adsense? And I don't know if adsense accepts the country I am in...

    You must've had some previous experience with website creation or SEO, right? If not, wow, you are making IMPRESSIVE progress in such a small amount of time. I am sure you will hit $500 a day within a few months at most.

    Best of luck, I will be following! :)

    Thanks! I'm trying to stabilize my earnings now, I'm still trying to optimize my money articles to bring in more $$ and stabilize the earnings.. It's flunctuating between $100-$300 now. I'm still trying to figure out how to stabilize the earnings!

    Thanks :)

    Hey thanks! To be honest, nope I've not had any SEO experience prior to this, like I said I just started. Website building, I don't have much experience too. I just bought premium WP themes, watch the tutorials and play around with them. Trial and error :)

    Well, now I am REALLY jealous LOL

    Keep writing good quality articles focusing on your main keywords and also long tailed keywords that might be related because you can get some good traffic from there too ;)

    Where is your currently traffic coming from?

    Good luck with your journey, will be following!
