    Hello BHW, have been on this forum for a while now and my earnings aren't quite what they should be. I'm currently at a stable 2-3$ a day with MNS and content locking which isn't quite enough :rolleyes:.
    I got about 5-10 Hours a day to spend on IM on a daily basis. My goal is to make a living of IM this time next year.

    These are the sites I currently own and worked on since the first week of January. These sites costed me less than $100 to set up and rank on their current place (all of them). I will try to flip them in about 2 weeks once they all rank on POS 1.

    I'm going to be spending at least 3-4 hours a day on working on this. I will try new methods and expand on them and duplicate if they are bringing in enough earnings.
    I'm in class right now but once I will get home I will start of DAY 1 with a new method and make another post

    Day 1:

    • I have spend some time researching and decided to push out another MNS and try my luck at building a target email list through a squeeze page. I have a couple of keywords with EMD available but I havn't decided which one to pick.
    • I will also try my luck at CPA+Youtube. I've never tried this method before but I will see how this will turn out soon enough.
    • Sent 300 bookmarks to the sites that arent ranking on POS 1 yet.
    • Switched from Leadbolt to Sharecash for Content Locking
    • Got a 14 day VPS trial to run my tools on

    I will make the CPA/Content Locking my main project for the next week since I have the least experience in that field.
    I will also slowly set up my EMD Site for adsense/list with all articles written and SEO done within 2 weeks.


    My Earnings from Yesterday were:

    Content Locking: 1.80$
    Adsense: 2.10$

    Total: 3,90$

    Day 2:

    • I spend some time working on a website, instead of launching a new MNS I decided to revive a old EMD I had laying around. The domain was parked but still got around 1300-2000 UV's a month.
      The site will be for CPA and Price comparison for a product that will be released in 2 months. I will also build a list with this site since the product can only be preordered right now.
    • The CPA will be a email submit, I will also get videos for the new product, put them on youtube and add this CPA offer in the subscription.
    • I made some changes to the content locking site and my earnings from yesterday more than doubled on the site, I will work on the ranking today since i'm only on position 6. I will build 5 WEB 2.0 properties for this and do some wiki backlinks.

    The SEO I recently did on KW1 really helped, the site jumped from pos 4 to POS 2 and Position 3 with a inner page. I already have 10 more visitors today than I had the entire day yesterday, hope this will reflect well on adsense.
    I'm trying to find a keyword that will do well with contentlocking or convert with the email submits. I will also have to apply to some CPA providers but first I will have to buy a new cellphone for this tommorow.

    My Earnings from Yesterday:

    Contentlocking: 5.50$ (Sharecash still)
    Adsense: 2.20$

    Total: 7.70$

    Today i'm VERY unlucky and lucky at the same time. It seems one of my older and outdated wordpress themes got backdoored, a shell script was uploaded and this resulted to the suspension of my entire hosting account. Contacted the support and this will be fixed within a couple of hours.


    The Lucky Part...

    My Earnings together made it to $17,45. I made a Amazon sale which I think is of youtube, 3 conversions on sharecash and 0.40$ on adsense, so I think if it wasn't for my suspension I would have hit $20 for that day!..Crazy
    I'm not sure how long this suspension will last but I will work further on optimizing my price comparison site and my other amazon affiliate site since they are both ranking on position 1 now. Additionally I will set up a foreign .tld to target a local keyword in my country that has very low competition.


    Wish me luck....fucking suspension is pissing me off !:breakpc1:

    Day 3:


    • Registered a new Domain for a Foreign EMD
    • Made one of my mainsites more userfriendly, removed all adsense ads except one and replaced the others with amazon ads. (Its a review site).
      The improvements took my bounce rate from 62% to 25%!:eek:
      Also made a facebook Fanpage for this site

    • I started writing articles for the site I "Revived" from a dead hosting account. The site will be for a new product launch, ranks on pos 1 and i'm really exited about how this one will do
    • Uploaded a few more youtube videos but i'm not seeing much improvements from there I might have to revise this method or abandon it.
    • Since my sites where down for most of the day I did a lot of SEO, havn't seen improvements yet.

    Good news....

    The good news is that I actually made OVER $20 yesterday, but i'm pretty sure this was just a super lucky sale. The sale came from my main review site so I hope that with all the improvements I will get at least one sale a day soon ! (wishfull thinking).
    The site was pretty shitty when the sale happened and as soon I saw that something got sold I spend 2 hours on optimizing that one site, and since I went from 62% Bounce to 25% bounce compared to the previous days i'd say it really paid off.

    Tommorow I will spend a lot of time on setting up my foreign site. It has 3.3K Local searches, little to no competition and should have a very high potentional to make some money through affiliate sales.

    Earnings for Yesterday:

    Amazon: 19,96$ (!!)
    Sharecash: 1.80$
    Adsense: 0.40

    Total: 22.16$ (I wish all days were like this...)

    Day 5:

    Yesterday; Day 4 was a really slow day. The SEO I did to my sites seemed to be taking effect because my more unstable main site is dancing right now. What I did yesterday:

    • Finished the foreign affiliate site, will have to make some articles and insert price comparison scripts this weekend but the site is done 90% and I will start SEO on it in a week.
    • 100-150 Live blog comments to one of my site along to a web 2.0 property, 300 Social bookmarks to each of my sites not ranking on position one.

    Designing the new site took the whole day so thats why I wasn't able to get more work done. This weekend I should finish the site and think about my SEO tactics. My adsense earnings dropped really hard since I removed adsense from one site that mainly has Amazon links now. That site also dropped by a couple of places which I think is the dancing due to my SEO or a slight chance I got caught by the recent Panda update..:eek: I had 16 Hops in total but my Amazon hasn't updated since DAY 3 yet so I have to wait and see if that got me any earnings.

    New Plan:

    Once i'm done with finishing the main content on the 2 sites I have (Product site and Foreign Site) I will give flipping a try. I have a lot of keywords that are ready to be monetized that i'm actually just sitting on. I will try to register a domain, content and a nice design and then will try to sell it on Flippa or here on BHW.

    Apart from that I have a lot of ideas but I still have to find a way to monetize them. I'm counting on my affiliate sites to rank since they potentionally could pull of a couple of sales each week. We'll see what happens next its still a long way to $20 a day!

    Yesterday's earnings:
    Sharecash: 2.68$
    Adsense: 0.60$

    Total: 3.28$
