I must admit I've always been more of a lurker than a contributor on forums but I hope with Black Hat World that's about to change. With reference to huge sums of money regularly being thrown around this place then you might snigger at my quest to make just $35 / day. Essentially though that's all I need right now but don't worry. If I manage to achieve my goal then I will scale and scale! Background Info I'm obsessed with internet marketing right now to the point it's pretty much taking over my life. It's undoubtedly a needs must at the moment because I have no other income. For the record I live out in Thailand where the cost of living doesn't command a ridiculous wage. I originally came out here to teach English but quickly realised that the monetary reward for the effort was never going to give me the lifestyle I wanted. I don't really remember how it happened but I fell onto some Affilorama webinars and my interest in affiliate marketing sparked. I've then been absorbing every piece of information I can lay my hands on and ended up subscribing to Wealthy Affiliate for a bit which I think it actually a great resource for beginners. For me though off the back of weeks of endless research I didn't think there was enough new with it to maintain a subscription. In the last week or so I checked out ViperChill's product Backlinks XXX. It was the first time I had really learnt properly about tiered link building and it all made a lot of sense. I guess after viewing that I've slowly began to be drawn away from the fluffy white clouds of Wealthy Affiliate style marketing to the dark side. I've been running a few sites for a while now since I started in this game a couple of months back and am slowly padding them out with content. Juggling numerous projects, trying to do the SEO, writing and researching is incredibly hard though. Sometimes I feel like I'm just smashing my head repeatedly on a brick wall. Sites I already run a travel blog I enjoy adding to from time to time. It's been generally well received but the difficulty is finding new content for it whilst I remain stationary in one spot. I see it as a slow burner. If I keep adding to it every week or so for a few years then I will have amassed enough content on it that I can perhaps start making some decent money from it. There's a gambling site that I'm hoping to build in to some kind of authority for Clickbank products in the niche. It's resulted in about $100 of sales for me over a few months and ranks Page 2 for most keywords I'm targeting. There's one I find myself on page 2 for at the moment which is a biggie and I'm currently building out link tiers to try and target it. I have a web development / seo blog which I kind of update with new things I discover. I originally designed it to promote Wealthy Affiliate but I think I need to be a bit more cutting edge with it. I've set up a site for health and fitness stuff with which my main intention was going after some Amazon commissions with. It's currently pretty dormant as I can't bring myself to write endless reviews. Mini Project I want to get on board with the success I see people have with Youtube. One of my videos for my other site ranks really well on Google search without any link building and just a push of a few thousands views. I commissioned a great little video that's now up online and targeting the dating game with a domain that refers to a Clickbank product. Now I've realised I've no real idea how I should go about ranking it. The keyword is busy but not super competitive. It's definitely possible to get some action on it I'm sure. So as you can see I'm suffering a bit from information overload the moment. Hopefully this post will help me prioritise and be more focussed. If you're still with me then thanks for reading and I would warmly welcome any encouragement and suggestions!
