    I have been trying making money online since mid-2010. I started writing through hubpages. At that time and still, don't know how to write properly. Later I moved to blogger platform and started a gaming blog. It was going strong until this happened[​IMG]


    I made about $230 from that blog ( adsense) before it collapsed.I Refused to give up and started another blog on blogger. It's now getting some traffic
    [​IMG]

    and made some sales (affiliate for the first time). And I believe blogger will again get throttled down when I achieve a similar result as before. It doesn't have much flexibility. Moreover, It's been under the radar I guess. Since I don't have time to wait for that happen again, I'm moving away from blogger and decide to start my WordPress powered site and share strategy on my new niche.

    What inspired me?
    Guides by hekkup, meathead,davids355

    My goal is simple

    Start an Amazon affiliate niche site and make some passive income to building something...

    My limitations
    1. Limited fund
    2. Non-native English & noob writer if you already read my other thread
    3. New to wordpress and so much to learn
    4. and many other

    Pros:
    Hardworking
    Science(Physics) and Technical knowledge
    Interested in digging data

    Plans

    Phase 1
    1. I already picked a new niche. It's highly competitive, and so far about 18 sites are competing for it. Why I still choose it? I think I like that niche and going to write the best way I can and interested to learn it. I'm going to prepare 35 articles/ review/buying guides (with affiliate links) to be exact before 2017.

    10 × 1000 word content
    10 × 2000 word content
    10 × 3000-word content
    5 × 1000 word content

    Phase 2
    When I hit 35, I'm going to start promoting content through WEB 2.0 and Backlinking.
    I'll observe any natural links are coming. If it's not, I'm going to do SEO myself through Web 2.0 links and content outreach and blog, forum commenting.
    Phase 3
    I may flip or build another site if it's make any passive income.

    Progress so far

    1. Registered a domain name and bought WP hosting for one year from Bigrock.
    2. I followed checkup's guide creating niche site in 10 minutes and prepared contact us, about us and affiliate disclosure.
    3. Using the schema theme i found here in BHW
    4. Published 1 article

    Wish me luck hehe

    1 more 500 word content today. It took me approx 2 hr to research about that topic. Now total of 4 articles.
    I do have a question.
    I'm using tablepress to create tables. If i want to use same table again and again in the same post with change in information, do i have to export and import tables everytime? Or there is any better alternative to create tables fast?

    Still looking info on tables. didn't added any content today. my posts got indexed but not the way i wanted it to be. posts are indexed under categories. i wanted it to be like http:// site name/ post. SO i installed yoast seo and configured it watching a youtube tutorial and submitted sitemap to google. Also added 2 web 2.0 links from one of my blogspot blog. I think it made site to get indexed fast.I need to add more content later.

    You should focus on traffic generation instead of writing months worth of content..

    Create your site with a few pages that will bring you the most money.. Then start driving traffic asap.

    Yeah but 4 article is too low. That's why i set it 35. From my experience it'll take approx 8 months to get start to see traffic from search engines. My top priority is to finish articles as fast as possible before 2017 and start promoting it later.

    Also the niche i picked is evergreen. Attractive to kids, ladies, men

    The ratio i believe is
    50% men
    30% ladies
    20% kids
    I'm more inclined to target ladies because naturally they got more buying power and buys something if they like it without thinking twice

    And products ranging from $50 - $2500
