    I've been lurking around here for a while and also have been trying to make money in IM since probably January. I've decided to make a journal to help me stay focused and to get some feedback and suggestions from fellow blackhatters.

    I currently have a number of projects going on right now. My biggest project is an adult related site. Its in no way a p0rn site, it gives adult related advice. Anyway, I was looking for a good keyword related to this niche when I found one with 40,000 monthly searches. I then went to godaddy and found that the exact match .org was still available. So i registered it.

    I put a wp blog up about 3 days ago. The wp blog had wp-robot getting content, and wp-unique spinning the content. I also use Web Traffic Genius Pro to get some extra promotion from my plug ins. I dont care for how wp-unique spins content so I wrote some pretty good articles, linked to them on the front page. I have a static front page that talks about my niche, tells them to read my "guides" on the side and then tells them for best results to buy my premium guide (which I have yet to write, but I have a clickbank product in place).

    My site was recently indexed and made its debut to the serps at the #11 spot. My ultimate goal is the number 1 spot.

    I currently have about 6 backlinks going to my site and plan to get a lot more through scrapebox. I am also considering getting some web 2.0 sites made that point to my blog and then using scrapebox to get backlinks for those.

    I've also considered getting the basic version of SEnuke and then buying some xrumer blasts to those. Not sure yet though.

    So my goal for the recent future would be to get my adult related blog to move up and also to get my guide written. Ive also been thinking about adding some CPA offers to my site but Im not sure where they would fit in.

    Thats all I've got for now. I'll update this DAILY and eventually let you all know some more about me.

    Today, I blasted about 10,000 blogs from scrapebox to get some backlinks. Hopefully google will pick those up over time and help me in the Serps. I also ran the scrapebox rapid indexer yesterday with the new 70k link file that is out. Coincidently (possibly) my site no longer ranks at 11 for the big keyword, it could just be dancing.

    My site is still indexed and is getting a lot of its content indexed everyday. I hope to see a return in the Serps soon, and hopefully on the front page.

    Today I am finally going to put together my ebook. I will mostly copy and paste from various other ebooks and probably change some words. I'm considering putting the product on clickbank so I can make additional earnings on it as well.

    Also, has anyone promoted CPA's directly through forums. I've been thinking about promoting a certain offer in highly targeted forums. Anyone have any luck with something like that? I tested a little bit and was able to get a few clicks on a link in a different niche.

    Thats all I've got for now.

    I've been following it. Hopefully you reach your goal soon. My goal is to make at least 200 a week so I can quit my job. I work from 3am to 7am at FedEx and I'm getting tired of the hours. Not to mention I go to school right after that. So thats my goal. 200 a week is actually a little less than 32 a day.

    Good Luck.

    Just a quick update on my progress. My site some decent traffic yesterday though an ezine article. I actually copy and pasted straight from an ebook. Worked good. So traffic for my site will come from 3 places.

    1. SEO - this will be the major source of traffic. My main keyword gets 40k searches/month
    2. Youtube - I have a popular subject and I'm sure many people will watch videos on it.
    3. Ezine - I saw yesterday that on its first day my ezine article drove in tons of traffic.

    WIth my good amount of traffic yesterday I didn't see any sales on my aff product. I did see about 50 clicks to the link though. The product sells for about 30 bucks. I'm really not big on the landing page for the product as it seems very fake and spammy. Once I get my ebook written I think sales will come easier.

    Speaking of the ebook. I got about 40 pages done yesterday. Today I haven't done much. I got off work at 7am and before I went to bed I scraped up a list of 10k keywords. Now.. its 8pm and scrapebox is still scraping for movable type blogs. its found 1.8 million already. Hopefully it finishes before I go to work again tonight so that I can post to all these blogs. This should bring in massive backlinks.

    Thats where I am at for now. This one site is a lot of work, but I have a few other small things going on too.

    I have a freelancer posting about 20 threads a day in a forum and 100 responses a day on a very high traffic forum promoting a cpa offer. I just started yesterday and saw 10 clicks.. no leads with the offer. I expect that to pick up some. I am paying my freelancer 5 dollars a day.

    I also am working on a making a few youtube videos to promote some email submit offers.

    So basically 2 little things going on, and 1 big thing that if it succeeds I will be meeting my goal. I just gotta keep working on my SEO.

    Well damn, I guess I'll have to update mine more :)

    Be careful with Scrapeboxing a brand new site, you risk getting sandboxed. I've made a high quality loose linkwheel around my primary site and then scrapeboxed my spokes instead of my main site.

    I'm not too worried about the sandbox, I think its exaggerated. Either way, I don't ping so that google can find my links naturally.

    I did run into an issue today with my main blog. I tried to change the settings so it wouldn't be http://www.mysite.org to just mysite.org. Something went wrong and now my blog is down. I'm hoping to get it fixed soon but I have no idea what went wrong.

    When things get back on track I have some content ready to go. I have about 15 articles ready to be posted to Ezine. I am going to steal some other peoples videos and upload them with my link in the description to all the major video sites. I might outsource that to someone with SEnuke. I am holding off on these things until I get my ebook completely written. Its about half done.

    I am going to promote my product on clickbank so when Im done Ill let anyone who asks have a free copy so they can see what they think.

    Anyone else got some good ideas to get some traffic to my website (once its fixed)? Also, if anyone would look at my website(when its fixed) and let me know if they see any place I could implement some CPA offers send me a pm.

    My intention with this journal is to not bore anyone, or promote myself, but help other black hatters. I will reach my goal and when I do every step of the way will be in this journal.
