    Good evening, first of all I want to apologize myself as I'm from Spain and English it's not my main language, so I need you to be understanding.

    Second thing, I just want to say I've been here for a long time, even with an old account which I have lost, so I've created a new one which is precisely this.

    Now to the point:

    - I've started a method. After reading a lot, I prefered the one from here:
    easy 100 day perfect noobs

    and particularly the updated version of it (using buzzbundle and so).

    I've chosen this method because I'm a computer enginer and i'ts pretty easy for me to move along whit it. I basically can create whatever I need by myself.

    Now said that, this method gives you the ability to reinterpret it as you wish, basically. So I've done this:

    - Use my normal host which I use for self things and self website, and create a subdomain.
    - Installed a WP via Softaculous cause it's damn easy, and preparate it a little.
    - Bought a domain, waited for DNS propagation and once functional, assigned it to new Wordpress.
    - Configured EVERYHING on this wordpress, from plugins, to seo, to ... EVERYTHING.
    - Create accounts on analitycs, adsense (which I've been aproved with just 2 posts on my new blog... ;D), adwords, webmaster tools, related all of em between them (this part it's damn long and tedious boy!) and even a Youtube account to use as a box to upload videos which I will use on my blog, and monetize it too, and being partner too.
    - I've created twitter and facebook accounts and started to add people on Facebook. But I've got only 32 people, as I've been blocked 2 times on FB already, first by 2 days, now for 4 days... :|
    - Created a stupid video and uploaded on youtube for my first post on the blog.
    - Dedicated time to find good themes, in fact, I've finally used twenty fifteen and adapted it as I really needed, much more confortable for me. And using Jetpack and all o this it's damn easy to move without even touch code.
    - Assigned analytics, adsens and all the stuff on the blog, so right now it's monetized too.

    But having said all of this, I've a lot of problems to make it grow!

    I think I'm doing it right! But if I stop to post one single day, it fucking goes down!

    Things to know about my experiment, which is not exaclty what the tutorial blog said:

    - Spanish blog. Lot of keywords.
    - Non particular niche, I've prefered to use it like a blog wich talks about everything. More like a social stuff blog (from s**t things, to interesting things).
    - Using this method, I try to wirecast various classic niches (pregnancy, wealth, fitness, gadgets & technology...) and see how people responds to it.
    - Using this method, I try to wirecast various classic niches (pregnancy, wealth, fitness, gadgets & technology...) and see how people responds to it.
    - Letting Adsense work on every part of the blog, it adapts on home to most powerful post, and on every single post, it goes for specific post content. Thats ok!
    - I've created a Mailchimp account and associated to the blog to. No one subscribed yet.
    - I've created a Clickbank account and created a super powerful post about 1500 words about pregnancy, particularly of a problema that has been solved thanks to one of the most classic books about pregnancy on clickbank. Various people came to it, read it, but no one boughts.

    So basically, about 5 weeks running, and not even a penny (euro) made, but becomes hard as hell to stay over the blog all fucking day! Not clickbank, not adsense.

    I need some advices, where can I follow on?
    What do I do exaclty? I dont like the idea of addmefast o youlikehits...
    But what about buying a bit of traffic on twitter or here? Will it be useful?

    How do I really monetize this engendrous!?

    Help, please... ^^

    Arigatou!!!

    Sounds like you are focusing too many niches. The audience will never be targeted, so conversions will be close to none.I would focus on one niche that you enjoy writing about.

    your doing it wrong the main problem is that you are not targeting anything.
    example you can't sell pregnancy or gadgets + technology to older people,
    your audience might have clicked into your post just to see what is it about but will lose interest immediately after reading the first couple lines (with Google analytic you can see how much time they spent on a particular page)
    but the key here is to target a specific niche and promote it to the targeted audience
    example maybe travel or health to old people or technology / gaming to younger people
    this is really the basics of all marketing
    you must provide some sort of value to the audience in order for them to convert into $

    I guess you're correct...
    I've started this way to see how people respond to various niches, and see which one is particularly more profitable. I guess I got "the niche", but I'm pretty sure it has a lot of competition... and so it's easy to positionate, it's hard to "be different", and more if we take in account that most of CB products are bull***t... :S (my apologizes...)

    Adsense ads, are horrendous! They are ugly and no one could ever click on em! I won't! NEVER!
    Is there a way to make'em beautiful? I mean, could Google ban me if I inject some "CSS" or find a diferent way to display them, but using the links as it is? Could it even being possible?

    1) you don't need to see how people respond to various niche, you need to pick a niche and feed ur content to people that is interested in your niche. you gotta look for those audience other wise ur conversion rate will be close to 0. joining the niche group on fb or other social media might help.

    2) nope and even if you were able to change anything it will be a major violation to their TOS, but you can block out certain ads that you think is ugly from displaying on ur site if I remember correctly

    F**K! I've got my simple FB account banned man... I was using it to prospect my blog entrances. Not many friends, just 40-50, but they liked what I was giving'em.
    Now FB asks me to verify photos on people, and I know basically no one! :S

    What the hell can I do? I've tried about 5 times, and now they locked me by time on verification process. Saying locked on timezone... :S

    Did you send out friend requests? Always let people add you not the other way around.
    I made that mistake myself once.

    Yes, fu***ing a lot of 'em. Thanks god, I had no many acceptations and controlling received emails and other account I've on FB, I had managed the way to finally recognize every photo FB asked me. Now I'm online again.
    But man, it's hard to grow your account! How the hell it's suposed to work the concept of having a big account if you cant send friend invitations on a bulk? It's damn hard!

    What an answer! Thank a lot man! This is the kind of material that one could need when is starting in this world. I read a lot, but I finally prefered to act, instead of stay calm...
    Alright so, I'm gonna start with the "people, add me" thing, and see what happens... ;)


    I'll inform you all!


    Best wishes!
