    Hey. Yet another journey from me… I started a massive site in 2 months journey, and promised that I would hammer the site with PBNs, but since it is growing and is totally whitehat I rather have a site that will for sure make it through all the different updates Google throws at us - as a backup, so that I can invest harder into my smaller sites. That site is making $600 per month with around $4,000 invested. Pretty solid return.

    So instead I will be making a public, real-time journey on ranking a Amazon affiliate site and flipping it for $100K.

    What I have so far:

    I have an Amazon affiliate site that I set up 1 year ago with 25,000 words on it. It is ranking for some smaller terms and is currently making me $180 per month. It currently got 10 PBNs pointed towards it, 10 web 2.0s and a handful of social signals.

    The plan:

    I will buy 20 PBNs per month and point it towards the site. I will not do any other type of links. 100% PBNs. It’s the most cost-effective way to rank a site, the other type of links are just a waste of money in my opinion.

    I asked the guys that I will buy my PBNs from if they would be willing to offer PBNs posts for the readers of this journey, and they were. So here is their exclusive landing page for the readers of this journey (they usually just do referral business): http://thelinkingurl.com/

    To reach a valuation at $100K+ I might need to expand the site. It’s a niched site right now towards one type of product. But I am sure I can reach $4K+ per month solely with the first product. I need to reach at least $5K per month to reach that type of valuation, I will scale the site after I have ranked for the first product.

    My target is to flip the site by January, 2017. That’s 5 months from now.

    The total searches for the terms I am targeting is 50,000+.

    I will be using these anchor percentages; 30% naked, 30% brand, 20% LSI, 10% exact and 10% generic.

    This journey will showcase how easy it really is to rank a site. We tend to think things are complicated because we won’t accept that it is easy to do something. 100% PBNs is something most people would go against. I will prove them wrong.

    It really doesn’t matter when you create the site. I am doing PBNs from month 1 for all my sites, and continue consistently until I hit #1. It is safe even for new sites, so you don’t need to have a aged site, I just haven’t found time to work on this one yet and it’s been sitting there collecting dust for a year now.

    Either way, let’s GO!

    I'm more interested in how you'll use those PBNs. I mean if you have 10-20-30+ articles, where will you send those PBN links to?

    You shouldn't point PBN links you don't control directly at your money site.That will do more harm than good.

    As a guy that has been looking to buy one of his businesses, i can tell that comlanies are looking for at least 12 months of earnings to value sites for greater than 12 months of average income. So for 100k you would need around 5k in average income (or 60k in 12 months) to get more than 12 months of income. The more months you earn, the more you can sell it off for. So maybe you should aim for July-September 2017 to get a lot more than 12 months in earnings.

    Anyway, best of luck!

    As a follower of your methods in the previous journeys, am happy that you are stepping it up. I will also be stepping up my game and following the steps you share here

    How many articles are you looking to publish per month?
