Now that my main website is doing quite okay, I'd like to experiment a little bit.

My first side journey is asking the question: is it actually possible to turn a positive ROI with a 'done for you' service? So with that thought in mind, I've jumped into the marketplace and started looking. I've found one service that I liked and figured might be good for this little experiment.

The one I purchased is an 'AdSense Vaccine' website. I won't link the BST but the naming should be enough to find it. I've also asked the seller if they are fine with me doing a public journey out of this or not and they said yes so here we go!

Few words about the service offering:
  • Ready-made niche website, with logo, premium theme etc etc
  • Every page required for Adsense
  • 100 HQ articles.
    • According to them, it's 4-500 words from HQ writes, but not fluent ones. TBH expected, but as long as the content is ok I don't care too much
  • Everything is done for me from domain name selection to keyword research. At the end of the order, I'll get a site with 100 HQ articles in one adsense niche
  • No claim was made for actual Adsense Approval in the BST
    • Interestingly enough the whole sales thread is focused on you getting an adsense niche website yet the actual question of adsense approval is not adressed at all. For me, this means that there is no guaranteed adsense approval.
  • Cost $200 for Pfizer (1 site) package
  • I went with the service because the samples looked nice and multiple members provided screenshots from Adsense that they were approved

Where we are right now?
I've placed my order and I'll soon get my domain name proposal.

What's my plan after getting the website?
First, off the bat, I'll do a proper review of the website. I'll inspect the quality, the SEO value, and see if it ranks or not.
--> Additionally, I'm planning to continue adding articles based on my own KW research to the website.
--> I might do some linkbuilding down the line as wel

The goal for the journey: break even as soon as possible. I'm mainly interested to see how quickly this website can make the money that I've spent on it.


The current TAT of the service is around 30 days due to high demand so I'll keep you updated on the steps.

The basic question which always come to mind is: If that works so well, why are they selling these sites rather than exploiting them themselves?

Good luck with it!

I wanted to buy one of these type of websites in the past, but always went for manual creation instead, so I'm really curious to see how this goes and how fast you can break even.

Right, so I've actually ordered this weekend and I just got my domain name recommendation. I've registered it already, now waiting for SSL installation then I'll install WP and give the credentials to the seller.

First surprise: I really like the domain name. I totally didn't expect this, but they've managed to find a two word domain that's 100% clean. If you showed me the domain and asked me what I think I would have said it's 100% registered.

That is another $35 to the expense. (domain + shared hosting 1years)

At first, I had the intention to ask for the KW list for the articles and curate it myself but changes my mind. I'll use the service as it is intended with minimal user input so I can get the full experience.

The basic question which always come to mind is: If that works so well, why are they selling these sites rather than exploiting them themselves?

Will be interesting to see. I think most done-for-you services do require the buyer to work on the site after getting it to make good bucks.

Initially yes. I am very bad when it comes to social media.

The costs of maintaining and growing the sites could be high.

Because creating a website and posting content on it is only 10% of the work. The rest of the 90% is driving traffic to it, which is where most people fail. Having no visitors to your website is like writing and publishing a book that no one reads.

This will be slow journey as per me. Now it takes time to grow a blog.

All right, today I got my site back. I've written a proper review on their thread so I'll keep it short here. Overall it's a nice looking site with mid-quality articles. I'm satisfied with the service for the affordable price.

So far no pages are in google index. For now I've added it to search console. I'll await indexing and will see how it ranks naturally. In the meantime, I've started researching expired articles. I want some more content and I'll probably use a selection of expired content for now. After that I'll do some proper KW research and go after low-hanging fruits. I'll update later once I see something happen in regards to indexing.

You can make it, but u need to keep updating content and adding better backlinks for the keywords within the website.

Only way
