    Not a lot of people know me here since i am not much active in this forum. Let me just give a short intro:

    I am into IM from January 2013. I started with fileice and these were my earnings since then:
    1st month: 68.xx$
    2nd month: 234.xx$ (Switched to AWM)
    3rd month: 160.xx$

    Nothing significant since then. My YT videos were removed and i did not upload any other video. I tried some other methods and in total i have made around $1k+ in about 4 months.


    What is my goal?
    I dont want to set a goal from the starting. Although i need a goal to keep me motivated and focused.
    My goal would be: To try and beat my previous month's earnings by a margin of atleast 10%

    SO my first goal is: Earn 270$ in a month(avg 9$ per day).
    I have an added advantage of the experience i have, which will guide me to right path.

    What i will do now?

    I have been reading about SEO from last 2 months and now my focus is on getting ranked on google. Still consider myself pretty much noob with SEO. Meanwhile i will upload videos to YT to get some money flowing.
    Also, i will only do whitehat SEO for now. My site is very new and i dont want google to penalize my website.

    The networks i would be using are:
    - Adworkmedia
    - Adnooka
    - Fileice


    I will try to update my stats and methods as and when possible. Alright then, lets get started:

    DAY 1:

    - Submitted my site to google, it is indexed. waiting fo my SERP to show up.
    - build 2-3 backlinks for this site today.
    - will upload a video today for a saturated niche, already have a website for it.
    - find a new niche that does not have much competition and make a blog+upload a video.

    Best of luck with your journey.

    Looking at your earnings of 3 months, you were doing great with YT+CPA and i would suggest to continue with it and add SEO into it so that you wont just rely on one traffic source only!

    I uploaded a video on saturated niche.
    Set up another niche. Experimented here- lets see what happens.
    Damn i did not make any backlink for my website. Its indexed but still not ranked. last night it was at 154 the position but now gone again. Think making few backlink will get me a stable SERP. Lets do this today.

    EARNINGS today: 0.90$

    DAY 2:

    - Make backlinks for my website.
    - backlinks for the videos i uploaded yest.
    - upload 2 new videos.

    Can anyone suggest me what type should i start with to make my backlink? i mean i should make a forum post, web2.0, social bookmark, etc. It would be great if someone give me few footprints to search the backlinks

    Sorry for not updating but i am really having a tough time with SEO. Never thought it would be so tough to build backlinks. I have not created any backlink yet which is most frustrating thing for me.
    Writing few articles now to submit at article directories.

    earnings are not good but it will get better.
    yesterday: 2.95$
    today: 1.00$

    UPDATE:

    Earnings are like 1-2$ per day. Nevermind, it happens. My hopes are high.

    I ended up buying scrapebox today and learning it now. Mainly bought it to harvest few quality links for my tier 1.
    Quite sure that there wont be any tier link building required for the kinda niche i am using. Only making like 45-50 quality links will do the trick for me.

    UPDATE:
    Earnings are still 2$ a day. Not going to complain because honestly i have not worked hard enough.

    Good thing is i have bought scrapebox which i will only use to harvest my links. This will speed up my process of backlinking!
    Yersterday night i searched few backlinks and today i will make backlinks on few on them.
    I have also found few good niches. Will try one or two today!

    if you want to earn quick then SEO isn't a way, start uploading more videos and make it rank higher as it will rank quicker than your website!

    for SEO, check your on-page properly, if you work on your on-page then it will start ranking, just building links wont work if on-page isn't properly done!

    It's pretty easy achieve, You may have think of getting own content locking solution, so you can have a much better variety of CPA offers, means higher ePC

    My onpage SEO is good. I have checked it using SEOpressor and SEO by yoast wordpress plugin. Also, my niche is having a shit competition. People with a lot worse site than mine are ranking in 1st page of google. Thing is this is my first time doing SEO so it is taking some time.
    Also, YT videos are not working for me idk why. I currently do not worry for my income. Focusing on ranking my site currently rather than money.

    UPDATE:
    Same old earnings, nothing to show.

    But i have worked quite a bit in past few days.
    - Made 2 web 2.0 profiles : blogger and wordpress. Added 2- 500+ words post in each.
    - Submitted 2 HQ unique articles
    - Made few other backlinks

    There is no SERP yet for any keyword. Its quite discouraging.
    Now i am making backlinks for web 2.0 and articles to give it authority. Need to work hard.

    Are you building backlinks manually? You might want to buy an automated tool that will do it for you or check out the BST for some SEO.

    If you do prefer to stay doing things manually then set a number of backlinks you will build a day, like maybe 5 a day or more. Don't forget to give your Tier 1s some backlinks as well to give em a boost.

    Yes i am building backlinks manually. Yes i will now set a number of backlinks that i will build daily. This would certainly organize my campaign. Thanks.

    I have nothing but scrapebox. Cannot quite afford other tools right now, its for my last tier blast. Though i will try to keep a high PR comment blast only.
