I've decided to make a journey thread, mostly for myself, but I truly hope I will be able to help some others along the way. To start off, my background in IM has up to now been unsuccessful in actually producing results... After having a few failed sites in the past, I've been extremely disappointed, but I will never give up as this is the most exciting and passionate work I've found to date. Through failure I've learned a lot, and I will be posting exactly what I'm doing so that hopefully some of you will be able to learn from my mistakes. As of right now, my plan is to find VERY low competition keywords and make several 'micro niche sites' to rank short-term which revolve around the same niche so that I can use the content I create towards an authority site which will rank long-term. I'll be posting more about what I'm doing when the time comes during my journey (eg. keyword research, link building, monetization etc...) I will be updating this thread pretty frequently and I'm sure that plans will change along the journey, but one thing definitely will not change - my passion and desire to achieve the goal I've set out for myself.
