    BACKGROUND

    I have been in Internet Marketing world for a long time, ranked for some great keywords in the past for various websites and made a good load of money, however, had to leave IM & SEO world in 2015 due to personal commitments and just got back into it in June, 2019 and BOOM everything has changed in last few years. The basics are the same i.e Rankings = Content + Backlinks only the meaning of content and backlinks have changed a lot.

    Earlier, I used to procrastinate a lot and jumped from one shiny object to another, couldn't help it too many shiny objects around. But now its time to dig in my heels and grind my way to success following one method, which is going to be Amazon Affiliate Niche Sites.

    But First
    CURRENT EARNINGS

    February 2020

    amazon-feb.png

    January was better at $245

    These earnings are from 2 affiliate sites.

    MY TARGET

    Target 1: $1000pm by June
    Target 2: $10000pm by December

    I know Target2 is too far off, but I am sure as I will sharpen my knife along the way, it can be achieved.

    Why $10000?
    In my country, If I sell my sites at earning of $10K, I can live off that money comfortably for many years to come.

    PROCESS

    Process is nothing path breaking, all of us know it from reading various journey threads here. Low Competition Buying Keywords + Backlinks.

    I will be launching multiple sites after every few weeks and concentrate on that site only for that duration. Once content is done and site is ranking initially will hit it with bought links from this forum and other sources.

    The reason for launching multiple sites is the current state of Google, nowadays can't expect a site to rank from the word go. So need to launch multiple sites, don't want to wait for 6 months for a site to rank. After 6 months or so would have around 3-4 sites.

    My existing sites are having decent authority, but for new sites I will be finding out expired domains, so the domains have some initial bite.

    I have honed down the keyword finding process and can find keywords quite easily.

    The most time taking work is execution, i.e. finding good writers, posting the content properly and creating a good structure takes a lot of time.

    I am creating this thread to keep me responsible to try and achieve the targets. I will update the thread at major updates in the journey and a monthly update.

    So wish me luck that I keep up the motivation.

    Thx all for the motivation, really need that

    India

    Thx

    The sites were gathering dust for a long time, earning around $10 pm before I started dusting them up in June. However, it was a topsy turvey ride, I was not aware of the current SEO processes so one site got hit in September update and then again in November update, but is now back to 80% traffic. In short, it took me June to January to get to that level as I was out of touch and figuring out lots of stuff. If somebody knows how SEO is working nowadays, it should be faster

    UPDATE

    Currently, have 4 affiliate sites, lets name them MS1-4 (MS is short for MoneySite).

    MS1 & 2 are earning most of the revenue.
    MS3 is ranking on second page for most keywords.
    MS4 has just got 1 KW in page 1, this site looks promising, need to order more content.

    Just started with MS5 with initial content. Wait after initial content to look at initial rankings and judge how much work will be required.

    Earnings

    Screenshot 2020-03-08 at 5.08.43 PM.png
    Earnings are a bit low, but have lots of items pending shipping, so should increase in a couple of days. Need to pull my socks to make the needle moving on earnings.

    Backlinking
    I bought 20 PBN Homepage links this month till now for $260, will buy 10 more. Giving, 5 links to each domain.

    Content
    Ordered a ton of content for MS2, should occupy my writer for most of this month.

    There are various criteria which I look into, need to create a different guide for this. But if you ask me to choose one criteria, then PBNs which rank in top 100 for its PBN posts is the best one. Lets take an example:

    PBN 1 - High Metrics - (say have around 10 posts with link to different sites) - No of KWs ranking - 2 (Ahrefs Report)
    PBN 2 - Medium Metrics - (also have around 10 posts) - No of KWs ranking - 15 (Ahrefs)

    Then PBN 2 is better than PBN 1 IMHO even though its metrics are lower, because Google is giving it love and that's all matters. I ask my PBN providers to choose PBNs based on this criteria.

    Its a big topic, also needs it own guide, but if you are looking for one method that you can take action and find tons of keywords today, find a site which is lower that authority to your site and put it in any SEO tool like Ahrefs, Semrush etc. and you will find some good keywords.

    Hmm... First, the monthly searches numbers in any tool including keyword planner is junk. It can only give an idea. I have seen large fluctuations with actual data. When I am targeting searches, I first look at the price of the product, for e.g. if the product is $500 I will target the KW even if the tool shows 0 searches, because people are looking for its review whether tools show it or not and even one sale a month would make me $25 (if its at 5% commission). As the price goes down the number of searches I require increase. For a $10 product I will target only if no of searches is 1000 or more and it super easy. Use this formula to know potential revenue generation if you get to No1 spot in Google for a search.

    Monthly Searches x .40 (approx clicks at no 1) x .50 (click thru to Amazon) X .08 (conversion to sale) x 10 (price of product) x .05 (Commision Rate)

    At 1000 MS and $10 product the page will make $8 per month max, which is good if all the above ratios hold true. There are other things to consider like in Amazon you may get benefit of other products sold together etc. but overall its a good thumb rule formula.

    if you use ahrefs, you can see how many keyword rank on google right? But i think its hard for expired domain to rank 1-10 position on google SERP, right?

    Anda for PBN, do you buy it from domain auction like godady, dynadot, etc ?
