Journeys all over the forum, why not mine then? Here it goes, Started a blog on a semi-popular niche for age group 18-30. I already know that there are many sites for competition, but I am trying to attract audience and traffic using Facebook fan page postings. (No black hat so far) Day 1 - 13 June 2013 : Bought the domain name from Godaddy Changed nameservers in hosting and everything set ready. Installed WP in my hosting, added a good Theme (Not high CTR). Its a regular theme. Added content ( My content cant be unique, its just a copy paste of what the main websites do ) Eg. If there is a classified site selling tv, fridge, we can just copy paste those ads in our blog. Similar way. I cannot create new content for my niche (Not 100% posts, 10% of my posts will be new.) NO EARNINGS | $4 invested for domain (.in domain I did not bother for coupons) (Hosting I already had one so added this as addon domain ) Since content is not new I am not worried about SERP ranking. But it is better to be on Google Ranks. So got my Site indexed in Google . Everything very good so far. Created a new fan page in a Girl fake profile with loads of friends in it already. Will start promoting it to get my fans raised. Will update my journey thread day by day. Questions??? Post here in this thread. Suggestions? Same way post in this thread. I have a question personally, If I want to check my SERP rank for my Keyword, how do i check it ( Not really bothered, but I want to know how) FAQ: (For newbies) WP?? - Wordpress Why only $50?? I am from India. $50 is almost upper middle class income in my country, also if I earn $50, then I can scale and raise it slowly. So first let me touch my $50 :-( When did all these happen in day 1?? Happened from Today (13th June) Morning. BHW did not load for me from evening, so i was not able to create this thread. How site got indexed?? Its easy, Just go to Google Webmaster tools, upload your Sitemap to it. How to get sitemap?? this is also very easy, just go to Wordpress plugins and install Google XML Sitemaps Plugin. It will create it automatically for you. Wish me good luck, so that based on your blessings and wishes I may touch $50 through IM for the first time in my Life.
