    I've been lurking this forum since early last year. Mainly just reading the latest posts that seemed interesting but never really analyzing any of the information. After launching an online shop with items I was buying wholesale, I was making some side cash but nothing note-worthy.

    I made an account on this forum and started to really read through different case studies and SEO in general. Both white hat and black hat, on-page and off page.

    I have a certification in Web Development from a technical school in my area but that didn't cut close to what I learned from this forum and it's members.

    The past couple of months I decided to dive into Amazon Associates and launched another online shop, this time linking to Amazon products. No need to invest in buying wholesale.

    As of right now I haven't put any PBN sites into effect, only Web 2.0s and other manual backlinks for diversity. I purchased GSA and have been putting it into action in various projects I'm testing.

    And that's really the biggest thing in making money from SEO, testing. That's really the only way to learn how sites rank and find out your own method that works for you.

    Because trust me, no one is going to share their entire strategy to making thousands of dollars a month. Why would they? You're competition.

    I know $155 isn't much in a month. But knowing that I can make that number go up each month without having to answer to a boss is what really keeps me going.

    Just wanted to thank everyone who's active in the community for sharing their own tips and tricks.

    This forum is just gold gotta say. You used SEO as your only traffic source? If so, that's quite impressive to me (I know it might not be impressive to anyone else but newbie like me it really is :D). Did you use any other sources of traffic?

    You mentioned that wholesale business. By that do you mean buying physical products and shipping them to customers? Sorry, I'm not native english speaker I get so confused with terms wholesale, dropsipping etc. :D Translating those words didn't help at all.. :D

    Yes most of my traffic comes from Google. I also run an Instagram account with more than 11k followers, but that is mostly to help build trust. People are more likely to purchase something if they feel that they can trust your website.

    And yes wholesale means buying physical products in bulk and shipping them out to customers.

    Buying direct from China is so easy nowadays that anyone can buy wholesale. You just need to find the right product and market.

    As for dropshipping, that's selling a product to a customer without actually having to buy it. So I can sell you a speaker for $60 and go to Amazon and buy one for $20, using your shipping information so that you receive that product.

    Okay, so I got it kinda right. I'm currently doing only automated blogs but I'm more interest in "real" business models like wholesale and arbitrage businesses so just wanted to get this clear :D

    Anyway, good luck to you!
