    1. I did start with 20$ - domain and hosting. It took quite long time, a year or so. I started to write articles like 1 article per 2 days so after a month I had 15 articles or something like that. But I did have an indexed website and only then posts. Homepage did not have any words, it was magazine style. Back then I wrote articles ~1000 words long. Right now they are all rewritten to 5-10k.

    2. I did invest first 50$ after 5-6 months, then next 70$ after 2 more months and then money was rolling. Then I went traveling for 6 months, then I did not spend any money on site, but when I came back, then I started to spend like 300$ per month and things started to move. Right now total income is approx 4k$. Mostly from this summer.

    3. I'm using Amazon only as for niche sites there is no point in using ads, like Adsense. I have amazon native ads at the sidebar, as they convert very well.

    Hey, can you elaborate more on the native ads? Where do you place them in the sidebar and how many impressions/clicks/sales you get?
    Also, do you use full-width posts or you show the sidebar on all posts?

    Thank you :)

    Hey! Sorry for late reply.

    I did put them in the sidebar, so if a guy is reading an article about toasters, he will see 4 toaster products in the sidebar. I'm getting 45% of income from those ads, so from 1000$ per month, 450-500 is from the native ads.

    I'm using full width only for 2 blog posts, cuz there are many tables, and they are quite wide. Otherwise, I'm using the sidebar on all posts and at the sidebar, I have only those ads and that sidebar is sticky also.

    UPDATE!

    Another XXXX$ income month, so far so good. 900-1000$ approx from Amazon and 600$ from guest posts, approx also.

    Also, I have ~30 - 40 new posts per month and today I realized that guest posts have made me lazy. Last 120 articles are from guest posts lol and none of those 120 articles are written by me :( But it's free real estate lol, why should I write or pay someone to write for me if I can just give one useless dofoll0w link to someone and he will write for me.

    DA 41, PA 43
    TF 30 CF 44
    DR 44


    Traffic 600-900per day (still recovering from last rank drop.)

    Still reading a lot and implementing new things on the blogs. Also started another 5 blogs as I'm also building my private network (not PBN) and I want to become authority site owner. Huge plans and slowly going for my dream - 100 000$ per month.

    Thank you for the reply.

    How much do you charge per guest post currently?

    Sorry if you already answered this but I don't remember and I read your whole journey.

    It depends on the link. If it's niche related not some amazon spam site, then I'm going as low as 35$ per post if the requester wants. For spammy sites I ask 70-100. But for that price no one pays except some good ol friends from UK who are my partners.

    If Amazon US,then they banned you if not any sales within 6 month. Next registration if you want do that must with new phone number as previous one in their database. Just curious,who make some real money from Amazon (as affiliate of course) I did try too,still I do that,so far nothing,just spent a lot. IM looks like a money trap for many, who don't know how to start and where.

    Update!

    Still at 1000$ per month threshold. Guest post requests rolling in every minute, but mostly they want free stuff. Right now I'm thinking about selling the site in September, so I can have money for my next big project. Next journey will be from 1k to 100k per month!

    Here are some stats.
