    Hello guys.
    I have been on BHW forums for quite a while; looking through success-stories & tutorials and so on.
    ------------------------------------------------
    Before I got here I started a Health & healing website (fresh made; unique content).

    I really do not want to spend money on domains and hosting, I want to start free, to get the money (those couple of dollars).

    The reason I'm into this business is to support my family little by little while still in school; instead of gaming I want to earn money (not into thousands but a couple would make me happy).

    ------------------------------------------------


    Well anyways

    So a month or two ago I started this website, I got my adsense account (after being canceled three times) using Docstock! (it works!)

    So I have twenty articles (fresh & unique) by this time and adsense (2-3) on each page.

    I have posted some backlinks on blogs & forums now and while


    I use GoStats website to count UV's: Today 5+- / yestherday 6 UV's (I cannot trust this of cours ... :( )

    I only get $$ on my adsense (6$ atm) becouse a friend of mine clicks from his computers at home.




    The website vww.mindforbodyhealing.co.cc
    (if it doesn't work: wwv.rusilja.byethost15.kom/mindforbodyhealing )

    The main question:

    I have quit too many times on this website.... No visitors, no succes, I don't see any future in it.... It takes time to find pictures on stock sites, adding stuff & adding pages....

    Do you people (experts) see positive outcomes for my website?

    I know I have to believe in myself but if pro-people say it's not "good" then I'd do something else.


    Wouldn't it be easier just to start a wordpress blogging site and add articles??


    I need some guidlines; In my head I'm in the middle of a desert. :confused:

    Thanks for the tips!

    What you told me about the keyword research, isn't new...
    So actually I just have to target a niche like: Remedies to cure cancer and build a whole site just on that, am I right? My site at this moment is all about health & healing; not targeted to any niche.

    Well, is it better just to make a wordpress & add simple theme > start posting articles??

    > promoting with twitter, facebook, youtube, backlinks
    > Adding adsense

    > Getting host & domain
    > Keep content & backlinks going (from niche like themes & like websites?)


    Are there alternative or better ways instead of Adsense?

    I find that targeting one specific niche and a couple related keywords is more productive, effective and rewarding than making a general site about health tips etc then later on once you have all these little niche sites built you can start making a bigger site that encompasses them all. Starting out too broad in a niche will leave you thirsty, hungry and dehydrated in the desert for sure....

    There are tons of ways to monetize your site besides adsense, first thing first though build your site and then the traffic and then worry about monetizing it, its pointless monetizing a site that nobody knows about - I hope that helps....

    Yes, I see :)

    q1: So by actually making a website with related keywords like cancer, treatment & healing I have a bigger chance right?

    q2: Should the website be just 1 page long? Or many pages?

    q3: Html or forum or wordpress? (which one is best & easiest to maintain)
