    Good i thought it would be interesting to post my journey here on my way to make a 500 a month with a dutch iPad Blog and the tricks im adding into. Ofcourse i would love to hear some ideas and ofcourse i will share my ideas here in this topic on the things im planning to do.

    The website is a dutch blog, for those who want to link PM me, which i putted online on 23 september.

    Right now the satistics are as followed:

    9.499 visits
    29.565 pageviews
    5.886 uniqe visits

    The revenue model is simple, i have listed my site into BuySellAds, i have a affiliate account for the itunes links and some more ideas are scheduled to earn more.

    hey,

    good luck, may I ask how much you're willing to spend per month on advertising or other things besides domain and hosting costs?

    That'll be pretty cool to follow and see how you're doing.

    I'm just wondering how you got that much traffic so far? SEO?

    Nice website design. Is it custom made? On what CMS? Edit: I just noticed it is a WP site. But I cant find the theme used. Could you share? Maybe through PM?
    Edit2: It looks like a custom theme named ipad-sense. Is it indeed custom or just renamed?

    I will be following you for more :D

    The theme is based on a theme from Theme Junkie called FreshLife, you can view it here: http://www.theme-junkie.com/themes/freshlife/


    Today was a bussy day, i ordered a 20k backlink package at my friend iXrumer he advertises on this forum also under services. Best xRumer service out there he helped me before with many websites and did a great job getting me in the top 10. The keyword i ordered was only 'ipad'. This costs me 80 dollars.

    I also started implementing iTunes affiliate links, i get 4 precent out of each sale people make via the iTunes button. I found out that if i post a article with a 'paid app' and tell how good it is, i get alot of sales. I only posted 79 cents app thusfar and maybe 2 or 3 that cost more.

    This has been on my site for like 4 days now and i made 2,15 euros with the iTunes links. Now this is a great oppertunity for me to 'play into'. So i've just made some 'special' articles listing apps. The newest one is about Comic Readers and it has some apps in it costing 4 euros. So i'm hoping to make some sales on that.

    I also made 22,50 dollars selling ads on BuySellAds.com. This website features a great ammount of advertisers that look for great places to promotie thier apps. My BuySellAds profile can be viewed here: hxxp://buysellads.com/buy/detail/38186

    Marketing wise i have been playing around a bit with scrapebox sending mostly trackbacks and comments to other blogs. I also let a guy named Sate Solutions fix me profiles on websites having PR9 and stuff. So we will see how this will work out.

    For now i keep getting steady and im working on a few great ideas i will tell more about in the upcoming days!

    We're working on a few things now, our main thing is a iPad Wallpaper database. And we're going to offer packs of iPAd-wallpapers for 79 cents. Then they get a whole pack with like 1000 wallpapers for thier iPad, if they pay 79 cents with PayPal, ClickandBuy, bankwire transfer etc. =)
