    I just wanted to say a big thanks to all of you guys and girls at BHW. I have been trying to start earning money from sites since June last year, and every time I run out of ideas or motivation I come back here and leave again full of energy and new ideas.

    Last June I started a local classifieds site which died a death as the Domain name wasn't related and I didn't market it enough. It was my first time, go easy on me.

    So since the beginning of this month I started two other amazon affiliate/adsense sites which I think I have good key words and the relevant domains. I have set them up on wordpress with a nice theme and have have tried to attempt to generate traffic using some of the advice on this site.

    1. I pin links to the articles on Pinterest
    2. Post links on relevant articles on Reddit.
    3. I have a Blogger setup and refer to sepefic articles, hopefully generating back links.
    4. I have a Wix site setup doing the same.
    5. I have started a twitter page, in which I have 100 followers and occasionally post links to articles there.
    6. I use the Google search for relevant/recent mentions of my keyword on Facebook and other sites and try to respond to them with links to articles.
    7. I have a gallery video on Youtube and have linked the video on my site

    So I have had a grand total of 120 visits to my site in about 2 weeks, and made about 2p through Adsense.

    I am obviously using Analytics and I can see that the source of my traffic is as follow -

    82% direct
    15% from Reddit

    The remaining couple of percent is from Facebook and Yahoo.

    I currently spend a couple of hours a day working on increasing traffic.

    Does anybody have any other advice or do I just need to increase my hours posting links everywhere?

    Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
