    Hello guys

    So I started a blog 3 days ago..i had a nice topic in my empty head so I thought..why not?

    It's actually the first time I ever started a blog..i don't have any experience with these things at all. (I'm more like a reader)

    Next I created a fake female account..attracted some followers..wrote some interesting content (articles, videos..) mixed with articles from an Autoblogger which I found here on bhw and "spammed' (if you can call it like that) like 20 times in a day on twitter.

    Result: Approximately 900 pageviews/day (record was today, 1419). I guess that's not bad for a noob? Since the blog is literally 3 days old.

    I added some google adds (was this a good idea?), and signed up for amazone affiliate.

    Now my questions..what are the next important steps..what should I do, and what shouldn't I do?

    Thanks

    900 views? omg..
    I started around 20 blogs like 2 weeks ago at blogger. Completely different topics, no views almost...
    So twitter you say. I'll try that, thanks. How many followers do you have there?
    Hm, monetize your blog with adsense, and scale, scale,scale!! Then get nice domain for your leading niches and keep scaling..
    I'm really jealous at you getting so much views...
    p.s. (Thanked you, only for motivation you gave me) :)
    p.p.s Register at google analythics, google webmaster tools, and goto google adwords keyword tool and traffic estimator, and check what is your niche worth. My all blogs are 0-0.05$ CPe, but one today suddenly became 500$ lol

    You should really have a good idea of what you want your blog to accomplish. Do you want people to click on ads? or buy affiliate products? yada yada. Then you need a niche. Find one you can dominate by doing some keyword research. Also a blogger blog is ok to create backlinks to your own domains but you really want to buy your own site and then install wordpress.

    Another thing that is challenging is finding fresh topics to write about, after a few months it can get really boring writing about the same old thing. Once your making cash you don't mind, but if you do not properly monetize your site you won't make any cash and then you will get discouraged and give up.

    Also adsense does not pay very well. You need millions of hits to make any decent cash.

    Writting. I dont write, i use autoblog samuraj. And adsense. And one of them have amazon.
    I'm trying to find niche, just can not get something to my head, but it's ok. First i need to scrape some money online for domain and host, and then find some nice probably micro-niche keyword and do quality 3-5 page site. I have now wordpress running on free host, i tried some, its so pain in the ass...

    Okay thanks for the reply's

    I had 3,698 pageviews in only 3 days. New record has been set last hour once again:
    2011-02-19 03:00 - Pageviews: 272 (from 03:00 to 04:00 GMT+1)



    I'm trying some adsense things..and amazone affiliate products.

    Yes I write things..to make it look real..but mostly using ABS like you.

    Do they ban people for no reason?

    Hm, i'd like to get cheap host and some domains, but for some reason i have no cash now, and first i need to get some online. That's the only way for now. I have now around 11$ at microworkers.com, i'll get few more bucks from there to paypall, and then we will see.(if you need some stupid click-click work done i want to do it for some paypal as well, i have time).
    Analythics, get the code, then goto Design tab of your blog, then Edit HTML, then search for </head> and paste the code right before the </head>.
    Autoblog samuraj should be great.
    I have at blogger couple of blogs that was really badass spammy, and they got banned after some days, but the rest are just normal "spammy", and its OK. Just post around 5 posts per day, not 100.

    since u are new , just don't use paid domain/hosting yet.. experiment with different type of monetization until u get the hang of it or to start with, monetize with adsense and amazon to find out which convert better...

    You need to read a lot..
    I guess i'm just lucky.

    /blackhat-seo/adsense/67-5-ways-improve-your-adsense-earnings.html

    Did u see this?

    By the way, i'm spamming a lot now on twitter.
    Actually it's not really considered as spamming..because i'm not selling anything or something..just giving information.

    I attached list of my blogs. Maybe somebody wants to spend a minute and help. It will be greatly appreciated. I started exactly month ago, according to Adsense. And having average: 33 views, 0.25% CTR, $1.29 eCPM, 0.04$ per day. All the time stats are: 806 views, 2 clicks, $1.04 profit.
    I'm doing most of the stuff according to my intuition, but it's wrong now. HELP :)
    Kelsen, check tweepi.com
    Kelsen, for submitting sitemap to G webmaster tools, use "atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=5000". It works flawless :) just found that
