    I have started my journey; I have bitten the bullet, found a long tail keyword, and made it into a website. The website is media based website that is focused on humor, and it is similar to Nine Gag. My eventual plan for the site is that it will be a member generated content website that pays members for the traffic they bring to their post.

    The website is hosted on a WordPress platform, and I have it set up as far as my knowledge reaches. The site is monetized with affiliate ads, though it does need more work on banner variation, and positioning. There is so much more work to do to create the website that I have in my mind and traffic is starting to snowball. I am getting traffic through Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, some organic google searches, and Twitter.

    So now to the nitty gritty, the reason I am posting here is that I have found myself in need of help. Like I said there is quite a bit of work to be done, and though I am willing to do it my time is limited. I work full time and have a wife who is not happy when I spend all my off time working on my computer. I am looking to cut out some of the time by asking for the advice from my fellow members here at BlackHatWorld. If anyone has a good place to start, or some links that would be useful I would appreciate it. Even better if someone wants to talk through skype or pass their knowledge unto me I would be more then grateful.

    Welcome to BHW. It's awesome to hear your already have a site you are working on. Most of us had nothing going on when we first came to BHW, so you're already doing better than many. Banner variation, and positioning can be advanced topics, but there is plenty of information about split testing, ad placements, and more here so you shouldn't have any challenges finding the information you require.

    Good luck, and once again welcome!

    Many of those phrases went straight over my head, guess its time to study. Thanks for the reply
