Alright. I've been on BHW for about 5 months now. I've tried a few (million!!) methods by now, some money here and there - but nothing has stuck. Dead/Old method. Too much competition. Bla bla. 2 months ago I started reading more about affiliate marketing and got hooked. I had finally learnt enough to understand what the hell a "backlink" was, or "buy an aged domain" and, well, SEO in general. I hadn't even heard about the term SEO before BHW 5 months ago. Fast forward to today. I now know what affiliate marketing is. My goal is to earn $100/day before 2018. Can I make it? Probably not. Will I try? Fuck yeah. I have read so many guides that I almost confused myself more. How to create a PBN network, affiliate guides, backlink guides, 2.0 guides.. I have watched so many hours of YouTube. I have studied man. And now, it's time to do what a lot of people fail at: TAKING ACTION I have a site up for a low competition keyword "keyword review" on kwfinder - 13 in rank. I made this affiliate site because the competition was so low, good for learning and trying stuff out I guess. The products aren't very expensive. Anyway, what I have done so far: Created Amazon affiliate review site with approx 3500 words of content - Check Created around 10 WEB 2.0 pages today, in varying quality - Check Created a post on every 2.0 page - Check, some with publish delay of 1-3 weeks with the article + money site link, and some with a money site link straight in the first post (not going to do that again). But at least a small post on each site to "kick it alive" Bought a $5 Fiverr Backlink gig 10 days ago - Check, it's OK for the price and help diverse my overall links. My strategy: Create affiliate sites (Amazon mostly) targeting low competition "buy" keyword Have MEATY and LONG articles. Content is king(?), 2000 words more than the competition. Create WEB 2.0 links everyday(?) - Amount depending on site and competition. Create a "WEB 2.0 PBN" AKA "poor mans PBN", which is basically free WEB 2.0 hosting with custom domain. (Ex. Tumblr with expired domain) - Yes, I know, not as good as a real PBN, but this is a budget journey. Blast WEB 2.0 links with Fiverr gigs (Fiverr gigs as tier 3? Yes/no?) For a bit more competition KWs, maybe something like this: Fiverr Gig Backlinks > WEB 2.0 > Poor mans PBN > Money site We'll see. Tomorrow I am continuing with creating Super WEB 2.0 pages, this time with better article quality. I think I am gonna focus on 3-5 well made WEB 2.0 pages a day. Also looking into guest posts, all though very hard with this niche.. Some questions: How reliable is Serps.com for site ranking on Google? Tips on good 'buy' keywords? I know "review" and "top 10", "best" etc. And just tips in general would be helpful. I always want to learn more, specially in my newbie state. I also have a second niche site almost finished with a lot more content (because the one competitor has a loooong ass article), but I have not got hosting for this site yet. I have bought a domain however. Will start with this one soon! Higher competition though, so I might need to get some PBNs. I might have another niche site in the same area, so a poor mans PBN could be a good idea for this. Thoughts? I am tired as fuck and I have been awake for a long time, spelling errors and other fails might be somewhere in there. Will update daily as long as there is something to update with. Wish me luck.
