    Hello BHW, love this forum.

    I would like to officially introduce myself to the community. (Don't think I ever did) I've been a member for quite some time but haven't really been active in convos until recently. A little about me:

    I'm not quite a noob because I have made my first $ online creating one successful micro niche site with amazon. I haven't had much success in replicating its results with another site yet though. I didn't quite understand how to do proper KW research when I set those sites up so that's probably why. The traffic is pretty low on the one successful site, but it does convert well. (At max I may be able to double or tripple its traffic)

    I now have a better grasp of how to go about doing things and a few more tools to assist. I currently have MS, a handful of free tools to do statical tracking and rank/backlink tracking, 3 hosting servers (2 for sure have a unique ip), amazon aff account, and adsense account. Unfortunately right now I don't have any type of budget to grow/expand. A lot of time though!

    My skills: Graphic design, web design, video editing, photography, and video. Content writing is my weakest skill and one of the main things preventing me from creating more sites.

    My goals: Short-term is to create an income of $100/day from IM.
    What I'm doing now to achieve it:

    1. I want to rank the keywords for my successful site to the top. So far I have around 30 keywords in top 10. More than half are in top 5 but most at position 3-5. For one I know I need more articles. I started out making sites with a friend, he wrote the content and I did the tech and designs. For over 1 year that site was just a one post site, my partner got hammered with "life" and was unable to contribute what I needed. My content writing sucks, and the niche the site is in was 100% outside of any of my areas of expertise. I recently found 2 new writers but I can't afford to pay them so the content is coming slow.
    Any suggestions for boosting rankings? Backlinks (legit ones :p) aren't really a big option for this site because the niche is pretty small and is fairly new.

    2. I recently have been playing with adsense and loving what I've been seeing so far. I placed it on my successful site to see what it would do witch is nothing impressive at all. I did get excited when I placed it on a site I bought from a member a few months back off this forum. It had a keyword researched, couple articles, pics, and minor SEO done already. I hadn't done much to the site since I got it because I started setting up an offline business and that took up my time and resources. The traffic for the site I bought is very low, but the adsense conversion is beautiful! It currently doesn't have any keywords in the top 40! I'm probably getting less than 1% of its traffic potential. It's bringing close to $1/day so if I get this site ranked better it may be the key to my short-term goal itself. :D

    3. Learn how to rank local talent! I have a business that specializes in multimedia services. I meet a lot of talent like models, musicians, comedians, etc. Anybody have any suggestions or methods for building them an audience through online marketing?

    Well, thanks for reading my post. Look forward to being more active on the forum.
    Cheers
