    Hello Guys,

    I have been lurking on this forum for a long time now and wanted to share my success which I am currently having all thanks to things I have learned on here.

    Background:
    I started my "Game Hack" website back in August 2016 with pretty low expectations. To start I went after three niches and wrote 2,000 word articles on each along with a video tutorial on my website. These niches are pretty high competition, think along the lines of "PSN Code Generator." I did not want to waste countless hours doing niche research so I just went after the biggest niches that I knew were profitable.

    August - October 2016
    Mainly used youtube to drive traffic. I used aged youtube accounts and the set+forget method and it worked out pretty well. It took 1-2 months for my youtube videos to rank, but once they have been on the first page ever since. I did not really boost videos, only tried ytmonster on a few and I am not sure if it made a difference.

    Also did VERY MINIMAL SEO, just found a few blogs related to my niche, and made meaningful comments on them while trying to sneak a backlink to my site.

    Site started making about $250/month here

    November - December 2016
    Did not do much due to exams but upload a few youtube videos. Naturally my site starting ranking in google and videos in youtube.

    Started making 1k/month here.

    January 2017
    Somehow, the SEO I had done in the past just started to kick in and my site is ranking on page one for some fairly competitive terms. I want to start focusing more on my SEO efforts and making new niches to expand my income.

    Current Earnings:

    Earnings to date:

    Plan to reach $300/day
    1. Find some low competition niches
    2. Write/Buy 2000-2500 word articles for each
    3. Create a video with tutorial on how to complete offer
    4. Publish articles on website
    5. Post videos to youtube
    6. Buy some SEO packages to rank
    7. Rinse/repeat

    Tips to those just starting out
    I know a lot of people on this forum are just starting out and are struggling to make money online, so here are some tips that I wish someone would have told me when I started.
    1. Don't overthink everything - I used to read on these forums for hours everyday about how to find low competition niches, do seo, rank on youtube. But, The only time I started having success was when I said "fuck it" and went after the most competitive niches I know and learned from there.
    2. TAKE ACTION - Most important, you will learn along the way don't spend too much time reading but spend time doing.
    3. Don't be afraid of competition - If there is competition, there is money to be made
    4. BE PATIENT!!! - Probably the most important one, it takes MONTHS to rank a website and you need to take it slow. Blasting your site with links because it isnt ranking in one month will only harm you.

    This is one of my unique twists which is why I believe that my site starting ranking in the SERPs as well with only 2-3 backlinks.
    What I did was in the video, I would tell the user to google "my site" + "niche" to find the article.
    What this does is improve your brand CTR in google which seems to have a positive effect on rankings and make your site look like an authority.

    I think you were one of the lucky winners in the latest G algo shift. Congrats op. If I were you, I wouldn't spend a penny on seo packages. Keep doing what you are doing, but do a lot more of it. The worst thing you can do is go crazy buying links and f'ing yourself up.

    My two pennies.
