Been an interesting journey to follow. Seems like it's paying off. Keep up the good work!
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.
how did you keep making moola after this ban, are you just using all social?
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.
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:
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).
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.
This is awesome buddy, so glad to see your Journey is going well. Earning $300 last month is a fantastic achievement and given you've made $50 this month so far your set to make even greater returns this month!
Keep us updated!! I look forward to seeing how you do the end of this month and beyond
Thanks mate I know that everybody have big plans etc, but my plan is to earn ~5-10k till next christmas. 2018. Right now I'm working hard so I can quit my 9-5 job which is so fuckin annoying.
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 I look forward to hearing you have quit the 9-5
Good to hear man! Hope you will reach your goal ASAP!
Will write here
nice journey, seems to work really well. And also great to see that you are motivated even with a full time job on the side, I have similar goals, main goal is to be able to quit my 9-5 in the future that would be awesome

As my niche is sesonal, this year earnings looks like this
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.
You mentioned you work as electrician. Well I'm finishing up school in that region (Techinician of Electroengineering school something like that I dont know how to translate it). Why do you hate it? Where are you from actually?
Can you skype me(PM me your skype or reply here)
I'm from Latvia. I loved the job but it's underpaid job
You can contact owners of local businesses that you're going to visit and offer them to be thier affiliate.
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.
Yes, of course, I have bought Fighter links from here, also Kratos (best one in the market). But not much, mostly i'm guest post outreaching..
