    Hello everyone,

    after reading a lot of threads on this forum for the last couple of days I registered today to also be part of it :)

    I'm pretty new to the "online business world" but i'm learning and invest a lot of time.

    I'd like to start with the goal as this is what motivates me: Make enough money to quit my normal job by end of 2014. (tough goal i know :))

    I've started my journey 2 weeks ago by building up some sites - some niche, some general blogs, some local and some global. I currently have a total of 7 sites which are increasing in UV due to SEO done during the last two weeks. Some pages already have around 50-100 UV per day what is pretty cool as I started them 2 weeks ago..

    I also have 4 Android Applications (very simple applications) where all but 1 aren't really used. One is used by approx. 50 users daily, but the ad network pays very bad for clicks on android apps so i don't think that i'll continue this one...

    After reading through this forum i also planned to do some of the things other do. Not specifically to generate a lot of money but more to learn. I tested the YT method with mixtapes and uploaded 30 videos yesterday. i have a clickbank link attached to the videos and had 200 video views and about 3 cb link clicks no sales.

    That's it for the moment :) i'll keep you posted. Please reply if you have any hints for a beginner (other than reading the forum as i did this).

    Due to the learning process I'd like to create a journal as others on this forum with methods and numbers.
    For this purpose I leave all projects out and only talk about 1 MNS for the moment. I've started creating it and it currently has no SERP and UVs, so I start with a clean MNS.

    What I have done so far:
    * Keyword Research (Not Oursourced)
    * Domain Registration and Hosting.
    * Article Writing (iWriters <-- Had 4 good articles and 1 i had to reject as it was computer written and therefore unusable :))
    * On Site SEO (Not Outsourced. As I'm a newbie, i'm sure i did A LOT of mistakes hehe, but we are all here to learn, right?)

    That's about it. The MNS isn't 100% finished but it's good to go as it already has 10 pages.

    Now it's time to start the fight to g page nr 1 :)
    Different then others, i'm not trying to make money with AdSense on this MNS. I'll try Amazon.

    Update: Just ordered the Basic package from THE BEST ALL-IN-ONE-SEO thread on this forum. My first SEO package ever.. i'm looking forward seeing the result!


    Does anyone have a good SERP Check Tool I could use? I'm still searching but haven't found one so far..

    Stats
    ------
    SERP: -
    Income: 0
    UV: 0
    Expense: 130.-

    Best of luck! Start with one site, don't spread your efforts! You'll snowball this whole bankroll a lot faster this way. That momentum will help you produce more sites more quickly later. Good work so far!

    A small update. The Site currently has 13 articles.

    Additionally i started building up a site where i've bought the domain lately. Currently PR2 and 2 keywords in the top 100. 60k monthly searches. A 4 letter domain :) I requested some articles on iWriter for this site as well.

    Another small update. the main site this topic is about isn't ranked yet as the SEO work ordered hasn't been finished.
    But i have one pretty cool update :) it's 6:30am here and i got up to check my stats for the PR2 site and i saw that i got visits comming from wikipedia so i'm backlinked at the current nr 1 for the keyword - pretty cool :) i'm going to wait for today to see the total stats for one day from wikipedia. During the last 6 hours i had 4 hits.

    One thing I would really suggest is start with one idea and follow it all the way through.
    To many times people give up on what they wanted to do first and go off to do another
    idea. Concentrate all of your money and time on one project at a time.

    Good Luck to your new efforts!

    Update
    --------
    I haven't been updating this thread as there was nothing special to mention. I did exactly what redclover suggested. I'm now focusing on one thing. That's one niche site which is currently ranking between 3-5 on Google US, Google Canada, Google UK, Google India, ...
    I built up the site the last few weeks and have put AdSense on it 3 days ago. I'm currently at 1 click and 1.5$ income :)
    I did some SEO during the last days. The results will be visible in 1-2 weeks i think.
    Hopefully i'll reach position 1 / 2 on google.

    As my primary site is basically finished and i'm waiting to see the result, i started a new project.

    It's more a niche then a micro nice project with the following details:
    90k US Searches, 2kk Global, 4$ CPC

    I registered a domain and i'm currently writing 10 articles about keywords going from 600 to 20k US searches.

    When the articles are finished, i'm going to wait 1 week for google to index those pages. After the pages are indexed, i'll add some VERY SMALL backlinking to all the pages including social...
