About Me: This is going to be my little adventure to a secondary income with IM. I am 24, living in Texas and currently inbetween jobs. Was doing IT management for my dads company but ready to move on to something bigger and better. Currently looking for a new job, and have some interviews coming up, but in the mean time I wanted to broaden my IM knowledge and create another source on income. Although IM is not new to me, the concept of doing it WH is definitely new. Everything I've done so far has been BH or pretty much BH, which means that it has always been burn and churn. I'm ready to make some consistent income for once. The Projects: So while I am in the job market, I will have a few projects. Here they are - "Authority" Site - IG account - Related to the site - Pinterest Account - Related to the site Goals: 1) My main goal is to get the authority site up to at least $100/day, and then create some more 2) Ultimate goal is to get the coveted 1Mil Followers, but first goal is 1k. Baby steps! 3) Goal is to get 20k-30k followers, but first goal is again 1k. Process So Far: 1) Authority Site setup the site about 2 months ago currently have 112 articles, all targeting different keywords ranging from high-very low competition began backlinking a week or so ago 2) IG: starting that today Followers: 0 Will be doing this manually, no bots 3) Pinterest I had started this in December 2014 Followers: 72 Update Today: 1) My website was having issues ranking, 3 of the articles ranked for a few days but today they have fallen off. I was curious why the others were not ranking, and 3/4 of the articles were not even indexing. Read a thread today about onpage seo, and it recommended taking off "recent posts/comments" so I removed those. Then realized my sitemap had errors when checking with GWT, so fixed that, resubmitted them. Now waiting to see if that helps. GWT showed all my articles and pages so hopes are high D: 2) Creating that today 3) Setup my pinterest with PinterestBot, going to scrape, pin, repin, follow, like, etc. I won't be updating much in this thread besides followers probably. Rebuttal: So everything is going somewhat smoothly, now that I fixed some website issues, I think I may make my updates in a specific color so they are easier for me (and others) to find later on. Keep your fingers crossed, I'm going to be interviewing with a company hopefully this week or early next week!
