    Hey Guys,

    I'm currently making €7-€10 a day though adsense on site #1 that I have that brings in 70,000 visitors a month. I'm looking to increase this up to €50 a day by the end of march 2017.
    I'm going to build a few sites that will be amazon geared that will bring in the other €50 a day.

    I have already purchased the domains earlier in the year but did nothing with them due to not having the time but now its christmas and holiday season I have a ton of time to write some content for it.

    I dont have any money at the moment and am quite in debt due to college fees, so I will be using anything I currently have and investing a ton of time.

    My Plan
    Diversify site #1 with Amazon review posts.
    Develop Site #2 with mainly amazon review posts that target a certain product.

    Site #1 - Adsense
    Already has an established audience of 70,000 visitors
    Has a quite Low CPC and low CTR due to most being mobile visitors
    Need to write more product related posts as other posts just give info the people are looking for.

    Site #2 - Amazon
    Using Keywords purchased from Ste.Fishkin's cash grab keywords a few months ago
    Write 2 Pillar articles
    Keyword Has 4400+ Monthly searches + subniches.
    Has a KW difficulty of 25-30 in LTP.
    Product is mainly $400+


    If you guys have any suggestions or want to know anything along the way, please go ahead and ask! :)

    See you soon with some figures!

    The first adsense site is purely based on keyword research, found a few keywords using keyword tool for monthly searches and seoquake to analyze competition. The niche is an area I've knowledge in from experience.
    Wrote 10-15 articles based on the keywords then used Social shares to promote on Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter and they seemed to rank really well.
    Backlinks have built up organically from other blogs who reference the articles.
    Ranking between 1-3 for all articles on the site. Havent wrote any articles since july but traffic is still coming in. :)

    Planning to use the same approach for the amazon site (Site 2)

    Great journey, going to be following along. A few questions. The first site you mention, does it only have 15 posts? Also, do you concentrate on .com domains only? If so, what country are you targeting for Amazon. USA? Or do you use Geo-targeted links. Cheers and Happy Xmas to you and all on BHW. :)

    Quick Update:

    Site 1 - Adsense
    Added 3 More Posts
    Repositioned Ads on page within post using WP-Insert. - This has doubled my Adsense income so far due to higher visibility on mobile.
    Reached $17-20 a day since repositioning of Ads
    Traffic has increased 500+ visitors per day more than average totalling 3,000 visits per day probably due to christmas holidays.


    Site 2 - Amazon
    Wrote 5 new articles 1000-2500 words each
    Have a total of 7 articles ready to be posted on the site.
    Customised theme so the site is looking good
    Planning to start scheduling posts when I have 10 articles written.
    Created social media accounts on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and IG for the site.

    I'm looking into creating a silo structure for the amazon site. I've read some threads but I'm still a bit confused by it. If you guys have any reccomendations for siloing posts or courses, i'd appreciate it!

    Thanks guys appreciate the support!

    The first site had 15 posts, mainly targeted to long tail keywords. I've about 23 posts on the site at the moment, just waiting for the 8 new articles to rank.Yep I concentrate on .com domains only at the moment , I might try .net in the future.
    As for the amazon site, I have targeted US in terms of keyword research but I am using geo-targeted links using EasyAzon :)

    Thanks for the questions, Hope you had a great christmas!

    Quick Update:
    Site 1 - Adsense
    December Earnings: $250
    Added 3 new articles (2 Topic, 1 Amazon Article)

    Also added Amazon Ads - Getting 10-15 clicks per day in the past two days
    No purchases yet, but in time! Its january, so I expect it to be slow.

    Site 2 - Amazon
    Started posting articles 1 every 2 days.
    Waiting for posts to rank for their keywords
    Will use social likes and shares to try and influence ranking
    Going to use Quora to write posts and refer to the site to build links.

    Going to write 2-3 articles per day for Site 2 and 1 Per day for Site 1 just to add keywords and build authority.

    Update #4
    Adsense Site
    - Still making €10 a day
    - Post from last month are starting to rank on first two pages
    - Have 5 posts ready to schedule.


    Amazon Site
    Purchased Thrive Content builder
    Re-structured most the posts (product reviews) using thrive. Looks so pretty ^^
    Made $1.19 this month so far from random products. Its nothing but its the start of something!
    30 posts currently posted on the site

    - Posts are starting to rank in 30- 50's range.
    - Bought social media signals to push rankings up a bit. ($10 from BHW)
    - Trying to reach out to blogs to do guest posts & build links

    I'm currently working on a SEO Strategy. I've literally no clue when it comes to SEO anymore so if you guys have any suggestions or links to useful threads please go ahead!
    My budget is pretty tiny, like under $100 due to college/living so I'm going to do most of this stuff by hand

    I'm thinking:
    - Yahoo Answers/Quora
    - Pinterest
    - YouTube Videos for each post
    - Guest Posting
    + More Social Signals (AddMeFast)
