    Congrats on having the resiliency to build up a bigger and stronger site(after losing your first). Most people get intimidated and move on to knitting. Intimidation is 90% of succeeding in all sorts of selling I've experienced. Cold calling and walking into businesses really prepared me for the random kicks in the teeth that is part of IM.

    Keep up the good work. You've pushed through the hardest part.

    I had (still have) a normal 9-5 job as eletrician. So after ban I deleted everything and started a brand new site. Deleted all old social networks etc. And after this ban I'm very carefully doing everything.

    Slowly, but yes :) It's more slowly because it's season niche. Winter, autumn and spring is completely without searches. Thanks!


    Yes, that's why I started also my second site so I have some backup. Right now I think google don't have any reason to ban me. I have 60 articles, together ~150 000 words, no shitty links have been built, I'm socially very active, I have organic views from social accounts, I'm starting to see some organic backlinks. So I think I'm friends with big moma.

    UPDATE 2017.08.06

    SO my site is getting more popular and I decided that I will not make it as a niche sie but almost as my personal blog because I really like it and I think I will make real life videos about it etc.

    So far my earnings are quite low, last month I earned 300usd, this month already 50$. It's enough to pay for 2 buying guides and one link package.

    I also decided not to buy PBN packages but make guest post outreach and get more natural links.

    In my niche, even 100 monthly keyword have competition with at least 2 authority sites on the first page, so I'm glad I'm at 6th+ place for those keywords. If I will get in 1-3rd place in those 10 keywords I'm trying to rank I will have 2500 monthly searches volume together and I will get ~1000$ per month. Because right now I get ~60 visits daily from google and I'm earning ~15usd daily.

    My plan is to get ~10 000 visits per month till next years august.

    So my stats right now are like this:

    e.jpg

    I have 84 articles, approx 150 000 words together. ~60 articles are just news and not for ranking so I have only 24 articles meant to be ranked.

    Right now I have 85 more articles in my PC so till september I will have 150 articles (hope so).

    Money time:

    Invested together from the beginning of this site:


    Hosting - 100usd
    Domain - 20usd

    Links - 280usd
    Social site stuff - 40usd


    Earned - 600usd so far. It means I already earning. :)

    I'm in the same boat buddy, the 9-5 is killing me at the minute, I'm waiting until I'm earning 50% more than my monthly residual income is right now before I quit!

    Your on a great path so far, it's great to see :D I look forward to hearing you have quit the 9-5 ;)

    Monthly update!

    So this month earnings are going down because of my seasonal niche. But anyway, it's quite good I think. Last month I got 300$. Till december I will have 250 articles (180 written by me) together ~ 600 000 words. I'm building links slowly and mostly manually (disqus links, quora links, comments, etc). I will try to earn 1000$ per month next year, so till then I'm doing everything I can to earn.

    My site stats look's like this. Yellow rows are from semruh, blue from Majestic.

    great thread, truly inspiring

    may i know how do you actually build the backlinks or you dont build them and just relies on social media shares?

    I know that you have outreached for edu link from our previous replies but apart from that, did u do anything for backlinks?

    thanks in advance.
