    UPDATE

    I added a total of 10 PBN link this month. To be honest, the month started off VERY well and I was on pace for a 52% increase in revenue at some point this month. However, for the past week or so, I had several zombie days which killed the good start I had this month. I also had two days where my site was down (on the 11th and 12th) due to hosting issues.

    I'm starting to see the effect of those PBN links. To be honest, I've been focused on two other projects in the past couple of months and I didn't put as much effort as I should have on this journey/site. The good news is one of my other project is doing VERY well, and once I secure #1 for all my keywords for good, I will switch my focus back to this journey. What I find interesting here is a soon as I hit #5 (The last two keywords are targeting a different page) I capture the featured card and when I move back to #6-8, there's simply no featured cards for these keywords which lead me to believe that once my keywords get into the top 5 and stop dancing, I'll have secured that featured card for good. I just recently sent 4 PBN links and I'm hoping that will be enough. For the record, it's a $175-$300 product price keyword and pays 8% commissions. I am targeting three version (best, cheap and good) and they're all ranking well.

    The third site I am working on is most likely that one site that will make me close my BSTs and enjoy life (if I ever rank it). I got a couple of high volumes money keywords on page 3 that I'm also working on. Here are my current SERP rankings

    P.S : This is the last time I will talk about another site besides the one I used for this journey. I just wanted to explain why I haven't worked that much on this journey lately.

    Thanks! I'm still light years away from my 10k/month goal but I know I'll get there one day. It's just going to take a little bit more time than I first thought it would.

    Excellent journey. I've just read all 21 pages lol some great information in there, your pbn's are they relevant to the niche? like if you check on wayback machine
    do you built them back to how they were and add a relevant post/page that links back to your money site?

    Also, do you use a comparison table? if so which one do you use in wordpress?

    my conversion rate is so low 2.3% 400 clicks last month on Amazon and I only made $9, meh

    Also interested in this.

    On top of that, wanted to ask how much content do you typically have in each PBN website? Do you pick domains that used to be foreign language (or have foreign-language backlinks) but were otherwise really clean and legit?

    No they're not relevant to the niche. It's almost impossible to find niche related PBNs. If you do, you're extremely lucky. When you pay on average $500 per domain, you check, double check and re-check everything; Domain history, backlink profile, previous owners etc..

    I build relevancy by creating a brand new site around my niche.

    Yes, I do use a comparison table for each and every top 5/10. I use Tablepress.

    2.3% is extremely low. The only reason I'm under 5% is because the domain I picked for this journey had (and still have) around 200 direct hits per day from mostly Japan and Australia and they read/click on my CTA's. Obviously, no sales occur. My other sites are converting between 8-12%. I'd look into your CTA and products you've chosen to recommend to explain your low conversion %.

    Only a couple of articles. Articles are between 600-1500 words. I stay away from foreign/previously used domains.

    Rankings:

    Big news today. I switched to a more modern theme today and I spent the whole day updating the site. I just "fetched" the site and waiting to see how it affect my rankings. I'm hoping it will help both my conversion rate and overall ranks.

    UPDATE

    So far is a decent month. I had the chance to work a little on the site. I added a couple more PBN links and 5 articles. Haven't seen much movement yet but I suppose it'll come soon enough.

    Thanks. Forgot to ask how much of the links are to the homepage, and how much to the inner pages, not exact count of course, in % so so.

    My home page already had over 90k links from 1.5k RD pointing to it so building more links to it is pointless. With my other sites, it's usually 40% home page and 60% inner pages.
