    Great journey. So I'm guessing you plan to use Reddit to get initial traffic and back links then try to rank for travel and credit card related keywords so you can make even more money from cpc.
    Cool idea


    Also, try to limit your responses to one message because your last three consecutive posts just seem kinda like your post count farming

    It took me a little longer than I expected, but here is the first update:

    I've created a really good post for 5k words, which should rank well with many longtail keywords. Cleaned up everything, started FB, Pinterest board and wrote a few more smaller articles. The first post on a not so active subreddit gave me around 370 users who generated 501 pageviews. 10 of them subscribed to newsletter and 2 of them posted comments. The stats are here: I CAN"T ADD THEM YET, BECAUSE OF THE NEW ACCOUNT. IF ANYONE CAN POST IT, PLS, LET ME KNOW, and I'd sent you a link to a screenshot =(


    To be sincere, I am not impressed by this at all, but at least I got my first active link from reddit, which is not bad. However, I'd try to use a different tactic the next time. Instead of sending traffic to my particular article, I'd rather write a well-crafted post to one of the biggest subreddits, and insert the link to my site in the end. Some of you may think that it is a suicide, however, I've done that before and it works like a charm (if the post is good enough). Plus, I'd create a Youtube channel and would crosspost my Youtube videos + send reddit traffic to them.

    I have a few Youtube channels, and it is soooo easy to promote them with reddit if you can target good keywords with low competition. After initial boost from reddit, they start ranking in Youtube pretty well, generating more ad revenue + traffic to website. Right now, I'd focus on creating a few more long articles and test what works better for me.

    Once again, 501 pageviews is not good at all, but they came from 1 post on 1 not very active subreddit. And when I have more content, I can organically post to at least 10-15 different subreddits a day and generate 10-10000 times more traffic. We shall see how it goes.

    Are you hyperlinking your links to text? This increase ctr by a massive amount for me.

    Digital Ocean is not shitty at all. That's actually hillarious that someone on blackhatworld thinking that DO is shitty hosting.

    That's my plan, exactly! Sorry about that, I am just not accustomed to the posting yet =)

    That's what I am gonna try in the next post (if I understood your question correctly). Should work good with a good surrounding story.

    I tried Reddit before and got lots of visits to my site. How many karma points are needed so that the link will be do follow?
    Goodluck on your journey!

    You probably already know this and I have no idea if it will help, but reddit has an rss feed. If I remember right you just do a search and add .rss at the end of the search url. Like I said don't know if this will help, but there it is.

    Link to the original thread?

    Reddit's the 5th-ish largest site in the world. 10k USD per month is small potatoes.

    PM me if you'd like. Can probably post that for you.

    Best of Luck bro!
    This is something new and good to see that you are already experienced and making money.
    so there is no doubt that this journey will end like others do...
