Hey everyone, you probably don't know who am because I don't post much, however I've started this thread partly to help get myself more active in the forum and stop me from lurking so much. Anyway, I've been in internet marketing for about a year, but I've never been paid out by a company.The best I've ever made was a few hundred from article writing, okay but still far from where I want to be. At the moment I have 5 websites (all of them are MNS) with 6 - 11 articles on each. To make it easy I'll just refer to the as website 1-5: Website 1 is monetized by Adsense, is a year old and has about 8 uniques a day. Website 2 is monetized through adsense, CB and Amazon Associates. It is 8 months old and has about 20 uniques per day. Website 3 - 5 are all 4 months old, monetized through adsense and get no traffic. My websites get traffic almost exclusively from Google, so that is what I will focus on. My goal is to get up to $100 per day, so my game plan is to make these sites profitable before building new ones. Recently, my major focus has been improving CTR by using different layouts. I'm fairly confident that my sites are well optimized for a high CTR but a will let the data be the judge. I plan on doing this income journal in a similar format to thec00kchris because I really like how he set his up. (Not to mention how much of an inspiration he is). So if you are a reading this Chris, I hope you don't mind me stealing from you! I didn't put a time limit on my goal because I'm going to be working as hard as possible so a time limit won't really matter all that much. First update will be tonight!
