    Basically, I failed so many times I though of giving up internet as a whole, I just thought it ain't for me.. But there is one thing that keeps me going.. and it's the mindset of being my own boss, I dont want to make money for someone else.. So I took up some time to research a very popular niche on the English speaking market, and then compared it with the popularity in my country and the competition level. I found out at the market is popular itself about 1 million searches per month on 6 keywords each (The cpc for the keyword is very small so the traffic matters and ctr), I then checked what competition I will be working with and it seems that it can be done with some hard work and dedication.

    If anyone is curious the niche is related to online browser games that is why the demand is so high.

    I will update the journey as much as I can. (I have to take care of school and other things, I dont want to give up my education yet :) :) )

    My budget? Hehe my budget??? hehehe. Its there but its not basically..
    (I get 120$ a month for pocket money, I am 17 years old so gonna try and make it work)

    Ok so let's get started!

    What I've done:

    Researched my keyword. (Picket out the most promising keywords)
    Resarched my competition. (Did some backlink checks, highest ranking competition has a DA of 45. WTF? )
    Bought a country specific domain. 4 letter domain related to the niche (Dont worry they are cheap and not in demand)
    Bought an SSL just in case, I am not going to use it for now.
    Bought a vps for 1 year.
    Bought a script from codecanyon for 22$
    Setup the website with the script installed. (I did some big changes to the design of the script so it doesn't look like another copy.)
    Created a facebook page

    What's next:

    - Translating the whole website into the language I need it in.

    - Uploading 1 game at a time changing the whole description of the game to include at least 3 of the keywords I picked.

    - Creating a blog. Adding at least 6 1k posts each containing the different keyword. Maybe more later on :)

    - Building backlinks and the rest...

    Anything else?

    Well, we will find out on the way, if anyone has any ideas or wants to share anything I would greatly appreciate it.

    Additional Information;

    I am no seo pro, I am quite the opposite so bear with me as I learn how to do anything correctly.

    UPDATE!

    I've been quite busy lately, had some assignments to give back. So I tried to balance school with the project.

    What I've done:

    Uploaded 100 games and re-edited their description to include one or two of the keywords I am trying to rank for.
    Did some additional research on my competition, I used ahrefs to find out what websites are linking to my competition and made a list of all the possible backlinks I will try and gather.
    I created a analytics account and search console account and connected them to my website.

    What's next:

    Uploading the rest of the games, I have about 25 thousand to upload............ geezus.........
    Change the descriptions of the rest of the games.
    Create a seperate blog.
    Start doing some backlinking!
