    Hi friends, I'm pretty new to this website, I've been researching & reading up about black hat ways of promoting and increasing money. I've read other peoples journey with blackhat and their $ journey to 10$ a day or more. Personally while it appears that way works great, I want to try a white hat approach.

    I'm 20 years old, I've been working at a veterinary hospital for the past 1 year. I've missed just a few days in that one year due to sickness. I've made my boss thousands of dollars and even helped create a project that makes him 5000$ a month. Just recently I resigned (due to my boss not appreciating me) & to follow my dream/vision/passion of being my own boss & working from home. I live in paradise right now(Hawaii), so I want my work atomsphere to be paradise too and not always be making someone else thousands of dollars when I'm only making 8.25$.

    My tools in this journey:
    Making Youtube Videos Daily (1-2 days a video)
    Blog Posting on my Wordpress Website (2-3 articles a day)
    Answering People on Yahoo & back linking to my website
    Craigslist & Backlinking to my website.
    Comission Junction(affiliate marketer)​


    I'll be posting my views from my wordpress website daily and my income from ads. Right now I already have my website setup so I'm just looking for more tips & ways to increase blog traffic white hat style. I average about 30-50 views a day on my blog.

    I'm giving myself a 3 month deadline to be making 10$ a day. I know that's very obtainable but I want to set a realistic goal.

    A famous quote reads;

    Code:
    Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
    I believe consistency is the key to success so we'll see...
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 10

    Careful with backlinking from google if you have adsense on your sites

    Well, you got some link diversity which is good. I don't know what niche you are in or what your blog is about but I can def. recommend building relevant links.

    Do some link prospecting to find relevant blogs, forums and other communities that you can participate in. It's a good way to get exposure for your blog, build links and get some referral traffic.

    Good luck!

    Day 1 (3-15-2012)

    Website Views:84 Views
    I actually made a little more income today with the help of tweaking some features on my ads. I emailed 24 people, some were corporations, others were people with similar niche blogs trying to pitch my website & build links with them. Thanks to the link from iwantl00t. I uploaded a youtube video, am trying to connect with people on youtube as well to increase my views. Overall today was pretty good.I went to a backlink site and calculated how many I have. As of current I have 13 backlinks.​

    Day 2 (3-16-2012)
    Website Views: 65 views

    Heard back from 1 person that I emailed yesterday, he wanted to guest blog on my website. For some reason my theme doesn't allow it though so I'll have to have him email me his draft and post it for him. He wanted to setup a backlink between us though which would be good. Still at 13 backlinks.

    Well I didnt do too much IM today unfortunately. One of the reasons my website views is down probably because I didnt blog post today. I did brainstorm an upcoming project I have with my partner. Going to be making daily videos on youtube about my niche and showing to others. Should be good, since I'm a youtube partner the income from ads should continue to grow. I didn't make as much from ads as I did yesterday, about 50 cents less. Still though from switching some options I've tripled in clicks but lost about 25% in pageviews. I guess thats normal. Still a big increase in revenue from ads so far though (2 days in).

    Tomorrow is the first official video of my new series I have, I'm going to post some more on my blog & try to reach out to community and let them know more about my website.​

    Good luck. I'd make sure to post some directory links to boost your domain authority. It will help your blog post get picked up faster by many search engines not just google. My traffic on a site I run a similar strategy is 70% google search and like 25% organic from other engines.

    What exactly do you mean by this? Find directory sites & post my domain link to them? Or post links within my own blog?

    Day 3 (3-17-2012)

    Website Views: 132 views

    Things I did today:
    Submitted my blog to 10 blog directories
    wrote 3 articles to article sharing site w/ my affiliate link
    did 1 blog post on my website
    commented on 75 youtube channels to visit my youtube channel in return(for more views)
    changed my affiliate store to be on my homepage so that may increase change of affiliate sales.


    Earnings: Well My earnings were the same as yesterday, so thats not bad but I'd like it to increase. Guess I need to put more youtube videos out. I put one out yesterday but none yet today. Tomorrow starts official series of one video a day.

    I feel like today was pretty productive, no major sales & i'm still less than 2$ a day but I'm doing my best! Hopefully it will improve. I just need to keep getting traffic and sending people to visit my blog!

    Tomorrow: I plan on submitting my blog to another 20+ blog directories. It times time though cause I have to register with each website. Make a YT video, hopefully another blog post & another article or two posted & shared with the article sharing site.

    I am actually impressed with what you are doing. Most blog marketing tactics take a few weeks to see some actual daily revenue so I am shocked that have achieved a little bit under the 2$ mark daily. Within 3 days of course!

    Day 4 (3-18-2012)

    Website Views: 131 views

    Things I did today:
    uploaded 2 videos to youtube
    (one video is a product in my niche w/ affiliate link)
    did 3 blog post on my website
    commented on 75 youtube channels to visit my youtube channel in return(for more views)
    answered 40 questions on yahoo regarding my niche



    Earnings: I earned roughly 0.50$ cents more today than yesterday. Also I have about 10 more clicks on ads today than yesterday which is good.

    2$ a day is nice but I cant really seem to increase that more for some reason. Right now I'm relying on affiliate sales or ad clicks to bring revenue. Hopefully I'll get some good conversion eventually from the viewers. I like how I had one less view on my website today lol :)

    I wrote 3 articles yesterday & submitted them to an article sharing site with my affiliate link on the niche. However I got no views so maybe that's a waste of time because I invested like 45 minutes writing those 3 articles and didnt get any results. I'll continue to find plans & ideas that work :)

    Continuing to Do my Best....

    Day 5 (3-19-2012)

    Website Views: 66 views

    Things I did today:
    *Currently Editing A Youtube Video to upload
    * No Blog Posts on website



    Didn't do much today sadly, I went and spent time with my girlfriend & let my you tube get views and hope for adsense revenue which turned out I got more today than any day so far.

    Earnings: Increased my earnings by 0.50$ cents from yesterday, my clicks on ads increased by 7 since yesterday which is good so hopefully that will continue. More clicks= more money!

    Going to submit another 6-9 articles tonight to the article database with my affiliate link on the product. I haven't seen any turn around or sales from it yet but its still early in the game so we'll see.

    Dude this is awesome! I admire your determination and your desire to start a new life style. Couple things I had questions about, is your blog about your niche that you talk about, are they the same thing? If so does it have keyword traffic? And are you doing SEO techniques to rank for that traffic?

    Because the combination of ranking for google traffic and having direct traffic due to quality content is unbeatable.

    With that being said you will have $2 dollar days(that's really good for how new you are to it) but if you persist it will become worth it.
