    Well lets try this again.

    I had a journey thread before and they both kinda failed. Well not kinda, they did fail. I did make some money , and the plan was to re invest it into learning more and building some more sites etc but life took a huge dump on my jeep and i ended back at square one. I did buy follow liker and had just enough left over to buy JR VIP, instant money button is broken right now or im just too noob to use properly, not bothered tho, its good to give back. Karma is a biatch , so keep it on your good side.

    My target this time is $100 a day, from adsense . 1 blog maybe more who knows

    How i chose my niche
    Well i was actually looking for some information myself and found a really pathetic site ranking at #2 for the kw i was looking for. I checked in adwords and the cpc is $3.83 with around 1k searches. The post was also not really optimized for that kw either. I started to poke around that particular site and found that its ranking for about 2k terms with really indifferent generalized content, all around 1000 searches and cpc between $1.75 and $5.

    Time for some math
    2k posts @ 1k searches each = 2 million monthly searches
    say he gets 20% of traffic = 400k ( site is generally ranked in the top 5 for the cpl hundred posts)
    400k @ 1% ctr = 4k clicks
    4k clicks @ say $0.75 = $3k or $100 / day
    ok ! so really optimistic and i can imagine some of you laughing your backsides off as you read! My math is probably backward too.

    My plan is to make a huge massive blog! Im going to go after (what i think, cos lets be honest i have no idea what I'm doing haha) really low comp keywords. Im going to aim for between 700 -2k words per article, and kw density of no more then 3%. Why ? well i analyzed the sites ranking for the first couple keywords i found and that was about what they had. My thinking is just be better then the rest.

    For site content i copy paste from 5-10 sites, fudge the best bits together and then re write. So original IDK, i wanna say yes but idk. I want to add 2 articles per day, 1 news article just rewritten and one fudged and rewritten.

    How i plan to rank
    Well this is the hard part. I 'm really confused and a bit advice wouldn't go amiss.

    So far i have built the site, its a simple structure (blog style). I have live 10 posts ( close to 20k words). My on site seo is good i think. Like a lot of people I'm using Yoast plugin and all posts are green.

    For backlinking I'm going to build web20 blogs. Im only using ones that allow me to schedule posts. I'm using 100% hand written content ( by me , what a ball ache.) no spinning at all. Each post is going to be between 500 and 1k words. I am planning to build 5 for each kw in the beginning. 3-4 will be 5-6 posts long and 1-2 will be 10 posts long. Posts are scheduled randomly see the pic:

    Its a butt ton of work, probably over kill i know. So far i have built 11 and just have other tabs to keep track of each KW etc. However none of my links are showing up in WMT ? the tumblr blog infact has only 1 post showing up? if i search site:blahblah.tumblr.com , the other sites are completely indexed but the links still do not show up ? any ideas?

    ok so my other tactic is to use add me fast for social signals, ( google plus, FB twitter) i send a bunch at the beginning (15-50) then 1-5 per day after that. This is a ball ache also hahaha. For each post i also create a board on pinterest using the KW.

    This is where I'm at in the serps:

    Yes absolutely no place hahahah, but its only been a couple weeks and no links showing up yet. Not monitizing yet , but plan to when a post hits page 1. Real close on 1 post been hovering around page two for about a week.


    So what next do i do some article directories? with sentence spun stuff or well this is my only idea so far tbh. Welcome yours.

    Good luck on your journey. Keep your head high, three is the magic number. Let me get something straight real quick though.. you are rewriting content for your moneysite; but your backlinks are hand written?

    TY its all kinda rewritten. What im doing is collating the top 5-10 pages for a particular keyword the re writing. Not sure if its the smartest idea ever as it takes forever.

    Well content up for the last couple days , no moves in serp.

    I have one keyword that is stuck at pos 15 now for 1 week, ill fire a article dir at it and see if it moves. Have a 1200 word article already written so ill spend time paragraph and sentence spinning today. Then i guess ill drip feed it out over the next month.

    Will also build a web20 today, wrote the content yesterday so shouldn't take long. Just have to see how i get on spinning the other article.

    16 web 2.0's built -- 4 more and im done with that nonsense, for a while.
    No more content added to my main site, will for sure add 1 new article today . I just wanted to get my 1st tier complete and done with , its so time consuming and frankly boring. Make sure I'm on the right path.

    each one is between 5 and 15 articles long , 500 -1200 words unique unspun content scheduled out. Links drop over the next couple weeks / months. 8 have posted already. Using a mix of expired/deleted/ dropped and new bloggers, tumblrs, weebly and wordpress sites. Im aiming for ones with high PR or DA when looking for them.

    I have thought about using other blogging platforms, but I'm going to hazard a guess that 90% of legit free blogs use these platforms. So not really worried about a footprint.

    Next... ? not a clue tbh,

    Find competitors links and try to copy ?
    Maybe some blog comments to my 1st tier?

    1st keyword into top 10!!!!

    Will add Adsense now and keep going !

    Traffic is picking up a little 50-100 hits a day now, hopefully a couple more keywords will break into the top 10. Current average is about mid third page.

    Do what I do and use dragon naturally speaking, saves me a ton of time and ends up being very accurate.

    It's nice to see that you've gotten some results.

    Now scale it up and bring your keywords up in the SERPs!
    Wishing you the best of luck!
