    So I have tried various things over the past year or so but nothing has really stuck.

    I have, however, just found a niche where the CPA for affiliates is crazy high and I am pretty good at writing about myself. In the past I outsourced *everything* and just lost money, so for this journey I am trying to do as much of it as I can myself.

    The site is already about 6 weeks old and I have spent that time writing unique articles (750 - 1000 words each) and reviews. It is starting to rank a little bit but the competition is tough. So far I have taken in about $750 but I have spent quite a lot on testing out PPC with no success.

    My next stage is to create a PBN and I am waiting on a few guest posts to be published.

    Today's task is to scrape domains for the PBN. I'll probably start with just 5 or so and take it from there. For this I am using PBNLab. My other task today is fix some on page issues I have (minor ones but it all adds up)

    So I have seen some minor improvements to my rankings lately and a little trickle of traffic and a handful of conversions.

    Recently I tried native ads with no luck, but it was worth a try.

    At the moment I am trying to build a PBN, have one site up now (just waiting for content) and have my eye on 2 domains that are expiring today with great stats.

    I'm hoping my own PBN will boost the site enough to push it up the rankings.

    So far this month I have got affiliate earnings of about $400, but not much of that is profit at the moment.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Another update - won one of the two domain auctions on godaddy, should get it through next week.

    Set up both of the pbn sites for the domains I currently have, just waiting for content.

    All three domains are over TF20 and have really good stats and are niche relevant so I am hoping it helps.

    I think the actual sale price in the end was just £35, but after reg fees and whois privacy it came to about £50. I don't usually go to godaddy as its expensive but this domain was too hard to pass up

    Good luck with the journey.

    Pbnlab is great but I am struggling to find good niche relevant domains with it. I found some with domain hunter gatherer on the auction search and the rest I found with pbnhq

    Kw difficulty is mixed. The main keywords for this niche are really hard but I found some which are easier. I have quite a few sitting around the 30s in serp, so hopefully with my pbn they will get kicked up nearer page one.

    It's not very high but competition is tough. Being a high CPA niche it can be difficult to get conversions (I'm only average a couple a month at the moment), but with the right amount of traffic $5k+ a month should be achievable.

    I just use kwfinder to be honest. A lot of the keywords I'm ranking for weren't even intentional - I think writing good and unique content helps.
