    ---- THREAD CLOSED 11/14/2015 ----
    So hi guys!
    I've been here for long and I was in a slump.
    I'll be starting from scratch.
    Lets cut to the chase.

    Day 1.
    Keyword Research (2500 monthly search $2+ CPC High Competition Health Niche)
    Bought domain (already have hosting)
    Installed Wordpress
    Installed Thesis Theme

    Cost:
    Domain $11.66

    Profit: $0

    I will be writing my own articles for the mean time. And that would start asap.

    Hmm. Perhaps this is my chance. Following along!

    Any reason for choosing high comp?

    How are you to monetize your website? Adsense? After how many articles will you submit application for monetization?

    Great! :)
    Update:

    Done writing my first article. I will be monetizing using adsense. I already have an adsense account ready.
    High comp pays high. I'll be adding lots of articles. Maybe write one or two articles a week so that it will get pumped up.
    Ill also have to read some threads here about backlinking them.

    Update for Day 3:

    posted 5 articles,
    also got a free blog post from qsera (i had to write my own article. this is 1 pr 2 backlink)
    just found out the site was indexed.

    I changed my theme from Thesis to Genesis. Thesis was hard to learn and I dont know how to use it. Well Genesis is simple but not that customizable. I'll stick to this one for some time.

    According to Moz On-Page Grader: I got an A.

    This is my competition:

    Right now, I haven't monetized yet.
    If anyone would be willing to donate some link push, that would be awesome!

    Doing something similar at the moment, will surely keep a close eye on this thread. On another note, I see you chose a keyword that has many aged domains as competitors. How much of a role do you think domain age plays in SEO ?

    I don't really know. I just chose it because it had lots of greens :p

    Honestly, I don't know where to start. If anyone knows where I should be starting, please tell me.

    Update:

    I've posted a total of 17 articles.
    No backlinking done yet

    You're going to receive a pleasant start-up income with the work ethic you've displayed. You've done your research and took the plunge so my hat's off to you.
    Excited to see your stat updates in the future, have you added a traffic-tracking plugin? Never know if people are already viewing it.
    Writing articles can be fun but it's definitely got to be topics you enjoy, at least for me haha. If you require a Backlinking guide take a look at my personal favorites;

    Soon when your site has grown, perhaps think about adding Affiliate links to relevant products, Adsense alone can be shaky.
