    Hey there - I know I know, by now you're thinking "Oh look, it's THIS thread again"

    Yes this is another cliche thread about another newbie on his journey to trying to make money via IM. I really do hope you do not mind me creating this thread, I am just wanting to share my experience with you as this is my first ever attempt at this form of IM (or any form of IM for that matter lol).

    What I am creating :
    Micro-Niche website.
    8,100 Local searches
    40,500 Global search
    Approx CPC : £3

    It's not an EDM but there are not any EDM's ranking for the keyword I have targeted, the competition is very low and it will be fairly simple to get to the rank #1 of google with basic on-page and off-page SEO.

    My plan :
    To work on this website everyday and fill it with relevant content that is SEO friendly and to monetize the forum using Google adsense and possibly selling products related to the niche. I plan is to get it to rank #1 in google for 3 different keywords relating to the niche. Once that is done I just intend to see exactly how much money it makes per month. Once this website is successfully there, I shall then proceed to create more micro-niche websites which again make the rank #1 in google.

    There is no point me setting big ambitious goals of getting $1,000 per month until I first complete the smaller goals and work my way up.

    My Goals (in no particular order) :
    - Setup my hosting and my domains. - Completed
    - Write an SEO friendly article on my website.
    - Create a few different sections of my website such as "news" - "products" etc relating to my niche.
    - Get Google adsense setup on the website.
    - Install word press to my website. - Completed

    The reason why I set very basic and reasonable goals is because once I achieve them I can constantly aim higher. I will update my goals in future posts since I am unable to edit this thread after so long.

    Any help, advice, tips or good luck is appreciated.
    Also, if you see anything negative about my plans or goals, then do give criticism as long as it is constructive.

    Thank you.

    Advice: Use WordPress and don't just post 1 article. Post an article at least every week.

    Best of luck.

    Ah yeah that is what I was meant to put as my goal to install word press on to my website.

    Thank you will update that to my list of goals.
    When all of those goals have been completed, I will write up a list of new goals!

    One step at a time.

    Updated the goals that I have completed and also changed the keyword I am going to target to a much more competitive one.

    My first keyword only had around 10k max search per month.
    This new keyword has around 48k max search per month.

    I decided I would rather try to rank for the bigger key word which is much more rewarding, so I will be willing to put in extra effort to make sure I can get to the top of google for it.

    Thank you very much, I will take a look into them as soon as possible. I just transferred the GoDaddy domains name servers for hostgator, just need to wait up to 48 hours now to start properly working on my website.
