    Been a member for 4 years or so, it's about time I start making moves.i currently only make $10 a day if I'm lucky, but I think it's time to put all that I learned to practice.

    The plan is to completely dominate a niche that I have in mind within 5 months time. My methods of monetization will be CPA and google Adsense on one blog. This is a low competition keyword but I believe if I rank number one on it, I'll rake in $50 easy.

    I personally believe strong, unique, organized content with relevant quality links are the way to go for this project. I will keep you guys updated. The goal is to complete this project by July. Will be starting the website now.

    Day 1

    I've bought the domain just now, a fresh domain just to make sure I have a fresh start. I installed wordpress with the following plugins:

    WP Super Cache, WP SEO, SEO Image, SEO Comment, Smart Links Pro, Human txt, and Google XML sitemaps.

    I use those plugins for just about every blog I make, it's worked for me thus far. I am currently working on generating content, opposed to backlinks, that is how I always start it out. I have a 15 hour bus ride home from college today, so I plan to begin writing the articles for this blog. Each article will be more than 500 words, and they are unique and relevant to the niche I am trying to dominate. After I hit 20 articles total and I am indexed, I plan to begin link building.

    Day 2

    I submitted my website to Bing and Google Webmaster tools.

    I have my first 600+ word article already written and optimized, and I have two more articles on the way, just as much content and relevance. I am already receiving a bit of traffic to my website, but I am not sure from where or what. I have not started making any backlinks and it is a new domain. Probably some random stuff from Google.

    Today, I think I will write an article for around five long-tail keywords that I have in mind, just to flesh out the site and show Google this is a quality blog. These articles are all 600+ words, interlinked (assuming the articles being interlinked are relevant), with outbound links to relevant authority websites.

    Day 3

    Got indexed much faster than I would have expected. I have written 6 articles now, all over 500 words each stuffed with keywords and the works.

    Since I have been indexed already, I now plan to actually start backlinking. I am looking through the services forum for any services that may benefit my website.

    I have not begun monetizing my website yet, but as far as SEO goes, on-site SEO is looking as great as it'll get, and now I aim to work on getting quality backlinks while still creating more quality articles. This is a slow journey, but things should start picking up and becoming impressive once the backlinking process begins.

    Good Luck! $200 per day is a huge number but with hard and intelligent work everything is possible.

    You mean http://yoast.com/wordpress/ ?
    There are many plugins there. Are you talking about an AIO package?
