    Hello, friends, this is my first journey on this forum and my ultimate goal is to be able to reach 10,000 or at least close to that to that through a network of sites that I own. During the past year, I have been learn ing and implementing several strategies form you guys and I really appreciate and thank all the people who are making this forum alive and running smoothly. My main motivation for starting this journey is that I want to scale things up as one of my niche site is already making some money with Amazon.

    Current state of the network of sites

    The network is intended to comprise 5 sites. I already possess 4 domains that are already up and running and the other one need to be found.


    Domain1
    • Niche: food and drink
    • This is my main money site, up and running and making some buck every now and then
    • Over one year old
    • 70 pages and posts (500 to 2000 words each)
    • Homepage: 8000 words
    • Backlinks: 100 referring domains (comments, web 2.0, profile links, Directories, Social networks)
    Domain2
    • Niche = baby products
    • Expired domain with diversify Backlinks profile. Site is one month old
    • 10 pages already up
    • No offsite seo has been perform for this site

    Domain3
    • Niche: multi-niche website
    • Brand new domain,1 week old
    • 1 article published
    • No offsite seo performed at this point

    Domain4
    • Niche: This is also a multi niche website but this will be in French as I am fluent French speaker and would like to explore amazon.fr and see its potential.
    • Site is over one year old and is up and running. It was initially designed for adsense but now will be converted to amazon site
    • 10 pages up
    • 18 referring domains (Comments and profiles links)

    Domain 5

    This need to be found as I continue to refine the niche


    Earning So far

    Currently only Domain 1 has consistently been making some money since last December
    Dec 16: $25.70
    Jan 17: $104.83
    Fev 17: $152.99
    Mar 17: $110.11
    Apri 17:$139.47
    Mai 17: $352.27

    As you can see, this not big, but it pushes me to believe that I can have dreams and make them become true.

    My Current Strenghts and Weaknesses on this Journey

    Strengths

    • I have a pretty good understanding of what it takes to rank a website (through all I have learned on this forum and other sources)
    • I have high ability to produce high quality content both in English and in French
    • I have a passionate desire for success
    • I have argualbly only plan A, which is make this journey successful
    • I have 19 hours each day to work on this project
    Weaknenss
    • Lack of budget to invest in offsite SEO
    • Live in Africa with low internet connection

    From now on I will update verything that I will do on this journey. I will regularly update this journey as something pops up. I am open to all critcisms and suggestions to make this a success. If you would like to ask me about about something, please do not hesiate.

    Nice journey but I would suggest that you focus on the website that is actually producing the most money. Reinvest that money into your main site until you have accumulated enough money to invest into a new site.

    I've seen so many threads were people try to focus on to many sites at ones and eventually run out of money to continue with all the sites.

    Yes you are making good progress and I will follow your journey.

    I am from South Africa so that makes us neighbors.

    I totally agree with you. While I will be working on other sites, priority should be the site that is already making some money. Thanks for your suggestion, we are neighbors!

    Yes, I do have a budget issue but my family does not have much money. We live with an average of $1 a day and offline jobs are really scarce. Do you have any suggestion for ways to move this journey forwards on a budget? Thanks for your comment.

    Update 1

    Hello friends,

    First sorry of all those who have been following my journey because I was offline for nearly a month due to technical and financial problems. Thankfully Amazon sent payment yesterday and I was able to get hold of it.

    As many of you suggested me, I will focus on the main site which is already making some money until I get my financial feet set. In between, I will be bulking them with content and enhancing onpage.
    Although I have not done anything during the month of june, site 1 manages to make a little over $250. I was actually a little anxious that I wouldn't make even 20 bucks.

    June earning

    This year earning so far

    This month plan:

    On Page
    1. Improve internal linking structures
    2. Rewrite existing posts that are lagging behind, add LSI keywords
    Off Page
    1. Consolidate existing web properties (to prevent them from being delete)
    2. Blog comments (niche related & non-niche related)
    3. Social media (Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram)
    4. Find 1 expired domain with good metrics for future creation of my own PBN

    As always I am open to any suggestion and ways I can improve and move forward, so feel free to critic and suggest.
    For a reminder, I live in Africa with limited resources with slow internet connection. In fact, I do most of my work offline before uploading them online. This is mainly because my internet connection is expensive, pay as you go with USB modem. So I go online only to post things or find and download resources locally.

    I use the little money I earn for living or buying services I cannot perform myself or wich are hard to complete

    If anybody has experience working with limited resources like such I would like to here their strategies and tactics.

    I will strive to update thi journey regularly.

    Thanks so much for beind a wonderful community.
