    What's up guys, just a quick introduction on what it is that this thread is about, my goals and how I plan to achieve these goals.

    My name is CashCrateAddict or short its CCA and welcome to my journey. To be very honest, I was really against creating this journey thread. I feel journey threads take away from the time you have to work & they also lead to many unwanted PMs, 90% of those PMs being from people who wont take action or people who have a thousand and one questions. Also feel they can hurt your money making methods especially if you dish out too much info. The reason why I did create this thread though is because while it does take time to update an online journal every day, knowing that you have to update it daily and knowing in order to update it, you have to actually put in some work, it makes sense for me to have this thread to help push myself to stop putting off this one project and to actually watch it turn into something crazy. This thread is kind of my way to hold myself accountable. This thread in my opinion is going to help me put in some work. Hopefully this thread will of help to some of you. If I could help a couple of you guys along to way of this journey, I have succeeded lol.

    What: Create an "Authority" Site in the CPA/Content Locking Lane

    Goal: $500/day. ($15,000/month)

    Deadline: December 1st (I'd like to avg $15k with this site in December).

    My plan is to add fresh new content to the site daily, optimize the site to make it most efficient and effective, and bring traffic to the site. Basically get traffic --> Convert Traffic --> Make $$$. As for HOW I plan on getting traffic, I'm mostly going to target SEO but this is an "authority" site. Social Media traffic has to be flowing and well as sources other than Google. Might fuck around and create an email list.

    This is honestly my first project that I'm caring a lot about. Most of my previous stuff were 1 page lps that made me cash then got discarded. In order to reach my goal, this cant be like that. THis site has to be taken care of and I plan to haing this site alive for more than a couple months. Basically this site is online infrastructure and I need to treat it well as I turn it into a $15k/month money funnel.


    I will be monetizing this site thru content locking. I use CPAGrip as my content locking network
    I will update this thread on how I got about getting traffic to the site
    Stats will be updated daily. Will post about site stats and earning stats
    My daily activities in regards to this site will be posted daily
    I will answer most questions posted ITT. If you have questions or comments, shoot!

    $15k/month sounds like a lot and I think it is a lot, but I know if I could stop being lazy and put forth 2-3 hours a day at least to this project, I'll reach this goal quite easily. Mark my words. If I put forth 2-3 hours a day, I will make $15k/month from this site. Had to write it again because I still cant explain to myself how/why im being a lazy bitch :)

    Anyways thanks for reading, will have an update for you guys later tonight.

    I'm not doubting that you can make 15k a month doing this, but I think 2-3 hours a day will not bring you remotely close to what you expect to get by December.

    Unless you happen to become viral of course...

    Day 1 Update 1 - 4/27/16:

    Website is on a branded domain name.

    Today I put a nice theme on the site as well as created my own logo. Logo isnt anything fancy, created it in like 2 minutes but yeah, the site has a logo and has an identity. I also gave the site a social media presence as I created Facebook & Twitter accounts for the site. I have included social buttons to the site how I saw fit. Will work on increasing my twitter followers artificially. I'll try to add valuable Facebook likes by running a Facebook ad campaign. I think its easier to get likes on facebook + I plan to have a very active facebook page for this site. Twitter is mainly for show and I wont be (or I dont think I'll be) using twitter often for this site.

    I will add some fake facebook posts to the facebook page before I go to sleep. I'll add some fake facebook posts daily in order to make the page look good + lively for when real people do get to the site.

    Other than that, I have been working on making the site look nice and professional. Added some plug ins, added proper categories, added a contact, faq,about us,and a couple of other support pages related to my niche.

    Spent the last 2 hours working, will try to spend the next couple of hours working on the site. Will probably add 2-3 new posts. I wont post all 2-3 tonight, will schedule them to be posted 1 per day.

    Im currently at the stage of just creating the site and making it look like a correct website. I'm reading tons of articles about "authority sites" and I'm learning a lot right now. SEO isn't going to be started until I have 10 or so posts up and for the next few days I will just focus on creating a good site.

    BTW, I'm aiming at 1000-1300 words per article. Thats usually the sweet spot for me when it comes to SEO + Converting the user (according to tests btw)

    I have done keyword research as well and have a list of keywords I want to target. Right now each post I create will target 3-4 keywords, each post will be going after 50k-300k monthly searches.

    Been lazy after coming home from class (college student) and didnt start doing anything until about 9 pm EST. In a working mood and plan to put a lot of work in before going to sleep.

    No traffic/clicks/earnings to report.

    Update for Days 2 & 3 (4/28-4/29)

    I havent been doing much work on this site due to my obligations to other other sites and their SEO. But for the 28th & 29th (yesterday) I did add 2 new articles to the site as well as upload 2 new youtube videos (1 for each niche). I hope the youtube videos will bring traffic while I wait for SEO traffic to start flowing in.

    For the YT videos I created by own videos and made them HQ. I also did voice over. I use to have experience with YT and I'm just now getting back into it now in 2016. Im still research how to rank YT videos in YT and I'm still learning the ins and outs but either way I'm going to be uploaded unique videos to YT for each of my niches and hopefully I get some good traffic. As we all know, YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine. By not using YT in some ways, we're missing out on a whole lot of potential traffic.

    Today I plan to add a couple more posts to the site and I plan on working on some YouTube videos for these niches as well. I'm gonna continue to research into YouTube and soon I will start adding views + likes + comments to my videos to see if that help to get the rankings up.

    Also after I write these next couple of articles and add them to the site, I want to start doing some SEO for the site. To start off I'm going to create 10 web 2.0 links for each post on the site. Will not use any money keywords for these web 2.0s, only branded anchors for now.

    So far I've made $0 but thats to be expected. Once I get some YouTube videos up and running I expect traffic to start coming in and ultimately money to start coming in. I do expect to make most of my money with SEO though and I do expect the majority of my $500/day goal to come from SEO. YouTube is just extra revenue.

    Thanks for reading.
