Hello BHW. Today I want to share my journey to both encourage newcomers and get advice from the community on the path forward. I fell into a major niche by total accident January 1, 2017. An aged domain I was working on as a company began to win traffic in a specific niche, so I added Amazon affiliate to see what would happen. Boom! Day 1 I made my first dollar and I was hooked. Using the primary domain over the last 15 months I have built to US $250 profit per day. But now competition is harder than ever. My niche is totally saturated and I have added on other new niches and other revenue types to compensate. Now my daily profit makeup is: Amazon Affiliate: $35 Ebook Downloads: $30 Dropshipping: $180 Adsense: $5 (lol) Keep in mind this was achieved using the techniques that are well documented in these forums but without my own PBN. The work relies totally on the strength of my primary domain and years of natural and diverse backlinks. Now, time to kick into high gear and achieve $1,000 profit per day. Here are my steps that have already begun to achieve this. Because of the low cost of my current operation, money is not a problem. Simultaneous steps I have already started: 1) Build my own PBN from scratch. I am targeting 1 site per week using methods outlined in this forum. I am buying domains at reasonable prices with parallel niche links (average $250 per domain) and carefully avoiding footprints. This is a long game for me because typical Trust rank is around 25 to start. Domains with bigger stats have gotten really expensive, like $5,000+ per domain expensive. I am building super detailed home pages and then deeper content with ultra lean and fast site structure. Then powering up with new backlinks from properties I do not own. I’m also doing things like modifying .htaccess to stop people from seeing my PBN when it is complete. 2) Achieving top 3 position for my main money niche. This is very very hard. Some real players have moved into my primary money niche and are owning the front page. But I know I can do it. My site is as good as theirs, but needs to be powered with extreme backlinks. I have committed to both building more myself every day and buying big links from trusted providers here and other places. Because I am willing to pay Big to get Big, this is the easiest part of the step. To be honest guys this is where I messed up. I had the niche early on by accident. And I didn’t understand the value of what I had. Therefore I did not invest in the pages, just let them sit and earn affiliate money. I made more pages on my site, but did not get backlinks and do all the things you have to do. Now, big publishers dominate the niche and will be very hard to remove. Once I have achieved better ownership of search, I have bigger plans. 3) My goal is to shift affiliate sales to my owned ecommerce channel that already exists, and develop my own private label brand from China, order 1,000 units, and provide high quality customer service to differentiate from drop shippers. I estimate this alone can earn the $1,000 per day without other sources. But first I have to power up my money pages and be ranked top 3 in google. Conclusion Today my work is paying off. I can say my sites make nearly 6 figures US per year with about one hour per day of work or less. But now, I have to triple or quadruple that number. It’s not going to be easy, but only 15 months ago I was making $1.00 per day, so I know it is possible. Thanks for reading my journey, happy to answer questions for you if I can!
