    Hi guys.

    Firstly, let me introduce myself. My name is Ben and I live in the UK. I have a girlfriend but no kids (no kids = more time :D )

    I have been having trouble in my day job for the past year or 2 so I have decided to put my foot down and take control of my online income and finally quit my job.

    I have spent the past year reading threads on this site and I have put a few thinks into action and I am currently making upto £100 per month through cpa content locking. This is mostly coming from one site which is sitting at number 2 spot on google (sometimes number 1) but half of my traffic comes from youtube.

    A few months ago I decided that I would also include adsense on my main site. The clicks that I am getting are usually only around £0.05 - 0.20 per click put I guess its better that nothing :p

    After doing this, I decided to go down the adsense route so I downloaded the xfactor and fat cat courses and made 5 micro niche sites. All these sites are targeting keywords with 1500-3000 searches per month and are sitting on bottom of first page and top of second page of google.

    I am only making an avg of £5-6 per month with these sites so im going to leave them for a while till they age and blast the hell out of them :cool:

    SO HERE IS MY NEW PLAN

    I have the next 2 weeks of work and I am going to make a new site containing alot of different niches (kind of like a wiki type site).

    I have done a good few hours research and upto now I have found 42 keywords with a small amount of competition that seems to be ranking with little to no backlinks (The domain has 1000s put the pages dont have any or very few)

    All keywords have exact searches of 800-9000 per month and more than half of them have 3+ adsense advertisers with 0.50+ per click. Some of them with £3 clicks!!!

    I only get paid on the 10th so I cant buy my domain until then so I am going to spend the next 2 days writing content, trying to find a good looking wordpress adsense template (ANY IDEAS?) and trying to come up with a good domain/site name (which will contain half of my main keyword that most of the articles are based around)

    Once all my articles are up, I will start my backlinking :cool:

    TOOLS THAT I WILL BE USING

    Scrapebox
    Sick Submitter
    SEnuke X
    The best spinner


    I will be updating this journal every week or when ever something exciting happens :)

    If anyone has any advice and tips then please let me know

    Wish me luck...

    Ben

    Good Luck!

    My suggestion is to add VenomSEO to you software arsenal instead of SeNuke X if you haven´t purchased it already.

    VSEO is not webbrowser based but uses sockets, i.e. it is much faster compared to SeNuke. Its a platform based software that can be trained. Forum platforms, article platforms, blog commenting platforms, bookmarking platforms, etc.

    VSEO breaks captchas and the devs are members here and the support is just outstanding.

    Also, you really can not compare prices. SENuke is only a one time fee if you drop $2000 for it.

    When you compare the monthly subscription Venom is much cheaper.
    SENuke: $147
    Venom: $ 49

    You can find the salesthread by searching for "venomseo"

    I don't see any reason to wait.

    Make a backlink strategy and start right away to get their rankings up!

    Good luck with all your projects.

    I am using a cracked version that is only costing me $40 per month plus I get a few other tools aswel

    The sites are only about 2 months old so I didnt want them sandboxed (but then again im not really making any money from them so I may do it :p)

    since I have the best spinner, do you guys thing I should spin some articles for my site instead of writing them. I have spent the past 2 hours trying to write them myself and I have only done 1 and a half!!

    I wouldnt quit your job just yet if you are having to wait to be paid to buy a domain name.

    Rather do what you can in these 2 weeks you have off and continue putting in the time when you are not at work knowing one day you will be able to quit without having to worry about bills food etc.

    UPDATE

    I have borrowed some money so I can get my new domain name :D

    Only problem is I cant find I decent name to go with (I have tried abot 20 different names but they are all taken)

    I am only after a .com domain and dont want hyphens in it either. I want it to be sort of a brand so when im a multi zillionare people will be like

    "There Ben from blahblahblah dot com!!!"

    Instead of

    "Theres that guy from that website that I cant remember coz its got aload of dashes in it and doesnt even have the dot com to it... he a good looking guy though" :p

    If I find one I like the sound of then may get the the .net domain for it.

    But enough blabbering......

    ON WITH THE SHOW

    UPDATE

    1.5 Weeks into my time off and I have only got half as much done than I wanted to. This was down to a few things: decorating the house, internet being an arse and my new domain decided to only propergate with my host after 3 days!! (usualy does it within 1 day)

    So heres what I have done:


    • Wrote 3 x 400-500 word articles and published them
    • Setup all plugins and theme (ctr theme)
    • Got my site and pages indexed (apart from 1 article which does not seem to want to show in google)
    • Ran a small backlinking job to one of my articles using senuke
    • Used Rankbuilder profile creator on my homepage (forum profile backlinks)
    • Ran a huge scrapebox AA list to my backlinks created by senuke
    I have setup my ads on my site but disabled them for now. I dont want ads not there just yet as I want to see some traffic first (dont ask me why, its just something I want to do)

    Up to now, my 2 indexed articles are ranking at #125 and #172 for my main keywords

    The one ranking at #125 only has 6 live backlinks up to now and the other article does not have any yet.

    So upto now, I have made.........NOTHING

    Im only back in work on monday so in that time im going to run senuke x a few times whilst writting a few more articles.

    Wish me luck :p
