IMPORTANT UPDATE:
I went on a roadtrip, I'll be back home end of August, so I probably won't bother writing articles during the 2 or 3 coming weeks! But I'll still be here to publish the update on each site! Spending some good time in the south of France before going back to the grind!

well, that's precisely what I do, too. Except that I don't read anything in my language (Romanian), I read it straight in English, but putting the ideas together to make sense and the content to turn 100% unique is an insane waste of time for me. It literally, and genuinely, takes me at least 4-5 hours when I'm full of energy and motivated, and I'm talking about a 1k words article. I won't even dare try creating a 1.5-2k words long article cause I'd get burnt before I finish putting it together.

I don't know how you manage to do this without becoming stupid (that's what I feel like after creating 2 articles in a row), but props to you for managing. I wish I had your talent :(
Don't drag yourself down like that! It was like this for me aswell in the beginning, you don't have to make it 100% unique, just start by paraphrasing others results in your language! Do it every day, and you'll do it in less than 3 hours, then 2, and it goes on..

I jumped in at your journey rather late, but I am following without a doubt. Glad to see you sticking to this and not giving up. Keep on going!

Thanks buddy! I'm a roadtrip until end of August tho right now, taking a quick break without going back at it!

how do you know if they are User Generated Content?
User generated content is people creating the content on others website (Quora, reddit, forums). If you see those on the first page of the SERP, you probably just found a decent keyword!

Haven't built any backlink :)


Thanks man!


I'm creating <1000 words articles, that helps! Also I'm French, so I read a little about the subject in French, then write it in English!


Thanks man! How many articles have you posted already? :)
I'm in my first month of blogging, so I've already posted 9 articles, have 2 in the draft, and hope to publish 15 by the end of the month. I'll be happy if I reach 12 posts by end of the month.

Mmh it depends, Amazon could be because people are looking for a product, and youtube because they are looking for a video, that's a review keyword, right ?

That's a sweet start man, the goal is not to publish the most articles in a month, the goal is to actually keep going!

just a blogging keyword for Adsense but affiliate potential because the keyword is a product related ive seen on amazon and clickbank but it only got 300 US monthly searches with 3 sites of DA below 30 in the first page

Dude 300 monthly searches is already enough, many people forget this: One page will likely rank for a lot of different keywords, you could even rank for others search terms with even higher volume, don't let the numbers dictate what you're writing on!

UPDATE #32
16/09/21


Another weekly update! Looks like the site is going up, again..

  • So as you can see how the charts below, looks like the site is getting more impressions & more clicks
  • I don't know if it's the result of getting out of the sandbox, an update, or removing Ezoic, or maybe all of them!
  • I haven't shared the chart of the 2nd site now (still sitting at 50 articles), it's getting daily impressions but no big changes since it's in the early phase
  • Like I said below, I'm actually on a road trip throughout France, spending some good times skating around so I can come back full energy and grind like I did with the first site!
  • I checked for some new keywords, I came to the conclusion that you can't cheat a good KW Research, it should be done manually, otherwise, you won't find those hidden gems with the popular tools like Ahref, SEMRush ...


IMPORTANT UPDATE:
I've said it before, but maybe you missed it, I went on a roadtrip, I'll be back home end of August, early September, so I won't bother writing and publishing articles along the way!

Nice stats bro. Do you use Moz da pa while checking keywords manually to get an idea of how the competition is?
Apart from user-generated content do you see any other stuff which decided the difficulty of the keyword?

Not building any backlinks

Nope I don't use any extensions, generally, seeing user-generated content is a pretty good indicator

UPDATE #33
23/09/21


Time flies.. I'm still on a road trip, in south of France, will be back home on next update I believe!

  • Today, we got a spike to 176 clicks & 3150 impressions, I've not seen such number since the 6th of June!
  • Keyword rankings are in the green, getting better & better, there's a clear upside trend that can be seen now
  • The second site is still sitting at 50 articles, making his way, getting some clicks here and there...

so just searching the keywords on google and seeing top results is the process for research for you?
Pretty much, yeah, take a look at this, it's the method I'm using, that way, you're finding some "hidden" gems that could not or hardly be found with ahrefs and SEMrush.

UPDATE #34
29/09/21


What's up folks, so I'm still on a roadtrip, will probably get back to work early September! Site is progressing tho

  • As you can see below, there was a problem on GSC data, it looks like it dropped, but the number of visitors haven't changed, in fact (see note below)
  • Apart from that, the site almost hit the traffic record today, with 195 clicks & 3305 impressions.
  • Site 2 is still progressing, getting 10-30 impressions daily
  • As you can also see below on SERP Robot, articles are continuously climbing the ladder in terms of rankings.
