    Back in November I began a website specializing in a very broad niche. I had a ton of trouble getting it off the ground because I was new, I was paranoid over every little thing, and eventually stopped updating the thread, although I did continue to work on the site. I'm happy to report that that website is now making between $100-$500 with Amazon. I feel like I can continue to grow out this site, but I want to diversify a bit more.

    I have since built 3 more sites using this exact method which I outline here. This is some very complicated on page SEO and backlinking, so refer to this if you don't understand parts of my journey http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...hod-making-500-day-through-amazon-newbie.html
    None of these sites has made me ton of money yet, with most of the keywords showing up on pages 4-10. I have simply built out the category pages on each site, and pointed FCS networkers web 2.0's and social signals at them, with GSA doing the tiered links. I'll probably come back to them in the future and drop some PBN links and write some reviews and such, but for now I'll just let them age a bit.

    This new journey is going to be on a freshly built site. I will just say that the niche has to do with personal hygiene. This new site I'm going to be employing everything that I have learned for my previous site, plus I'm going to be incorporating pinterest and adsense into the equation, so I've got some learning to do as well. I've spent the past week or so learning Pinterest, so hopefully my site doesn't get blacklisted. If you have ANY advice on pinterest, please share as I am still learning the ropes. As for adsense, well, I don't know simple things like how to divide up my earnings from different sites and such, so yeah, lots to learn

    I'll make this short and sweet, and very task oriented.

    SITE TASKS
    Purchase domain, set up plugins, create website(Complete)
    Set up adsense 1 dynamic block on the top and bottom of each page(Complete)
    Write Home Page(Complete)
    Write Category Pages(Completed 12 category pages)
    Create Comparison Charts for Category Pages(Complete)
    Purchase logo on fiverr(Complete)
    Create header graphics for category pages and homepage(Complete)
    Write 5 Reviews for each category
    Write Additional pages targeting keywords

    Pinterest TASKS

    Create 50 Accounts, Write an About Me, Upload profile Pictures(Complete)
    Set up Pinblaster, 5 account per proxy(Complete)
    Per account/per day: Follow 100 people. Like 20 Pins. Comment on 5 pins. Repin 30 pins. Pin 100 pins
    Once a week: Unfollow people who aren't following me

    SEO TASKS
    5 relevant blog comments a day for 30 days using http://dropmylink.com/ (Day 1)
    Create 500 Web 2.0's and 250 Social signal sites(Complete)
    Spin Articles and post initial content to web 2.0's
    Spin Articles with links to site. Dripped over 5 months
    Purchase more expired domains
    Point PBN links to my website, one per week over 5 months(Start after 30 days)


    So as you can see, I have a time table, 5 months to finish the site. I've completed the initial tasks. I like the idea of incorporating pinterest, because it provides a lot of social signals to my website, not to mention a ton of traffic, so there are several benefits. I expect all of my initial traffic to come from Pinterest. It is something that can be automated, however I'm still learning about how to do pinblaster and set up everything so that I am not banned. Again, any advice would be greatly appreciated on pinterest.

    I want to finish getting all of the automated stuff out of the way, before I continue on the manual tasks of writing more content. Tonight I'm finishing up creating my pinterest accounts, and then I will begin working on my Web 2.0's. The goal is to have everything completed with the exception of manual blog commenting and writing by the end of this week!

    Good luck to ya. I got here by way of your previous $500/day thread, which was very detailed. Too bad I'm in a completely different field of expertise and could only follow the concepts, not the implementation. I always keep my eyes open, just like yourself, to diversify. If I could add any value to your journey, I'll be sure to chime in.

    Nice. Will be following this. I'd be interested to know if Pinterest acts up on you with those proxies and automation.

    Disappointed to say, I'm behind schedule! I've got a date tonight and wasn't able create all of my pinterest accounts! Also had some maintenance to do on the other sites, is what it is. Once I begin to make some $$ I'll be adding that those updates to this thread as well.


    Yes, all of my sites now use that theme

    Thank you! yeah, the web 2.0's aren't unique, although you can choose to make them unique by adding the header like I outlined in that other thread :) I use FCSnetworker

    I'm also interested to see, but it seems like everybody else in the journeys threads are using it this way. Worst case scenario, my url is blocked and I can't use pinterest.

    My advice would be to build your own. Other than that, no. I'm sadly lacking in this area, I have 8 sites in my PBN which I've bought through brokers and from godaddy auctions. Very hard to make work when you are just starting out.
