    Hello BHW!

    I am starting this journey thread to keep up with motivation, track my daily contributions, share the process and hopefully inspire someone to start a big project. My project is actually 2 smaller ones. This journey can become extremely profitable if I am able to rank one or both of the websites. Money = more motivation, but I hope to learn more about seo from this journey to. My first language is not english,and therefor the websites are in another language. There are a few pro's and con's whit not targeting english speaking users.

    Pros :
    • Lower competition
    • Easier to rank
    • I speak and write this language better than English
    Cons:
    • Smaller search volume


    It's time to stop wasting time and get things done. After writing between 1-7 articles a day for two weeks, it's nice to be over halfway to 100 articles. I feel productive and it's a great feeling.


    1. Finance authority website
    This is the website I will focus the most on. The website focus on a small niche, but very profitable. I started it about a month ago, but wasn't really serious about it unntil 14 days ago. All the different keywords from my keyword research add up to aprox. 100.000 monthly searches. The most competitive keyword alone get about 10.000 MS. The site will be monetized through finance affiliate offers, when it starts ranking.
    The interesting part and one of the reasons I choose this niche, is that a lot of the websites ranking in top 10 have EMD + very few links. With an authority site, I should have no trouble outranking getting to top 10 for many of the less competitive MS. The only problem is there is another authority site with a huge budget that dominate many of the keywords I am after. They have the cash to buy links from many major newspapers in our country.
    My domain name is an exact match for one of the most competitive keywords, but with an exotic tld not my country's own tld. ( I could have choosen that, but than I had to create a branded domain name instead.)

    What's Done:
    Keyword Research.
    Analyzed many of the competitors in top 10 rankings.
    Created the website with 3 pages + about page.
    Wrote pillar articles for those 3 pages.
    Written 55 articles, posted 9 of them.
    Changed the theme 5 times before.
    Made one slideshow youtube video.
    Set up google webmaster tools + analytics.
    Created social profiles google+, twittter and FB.

    The plan here is to write between 1-5+ articles a day until I have 100 articles in total.

    To do list:

    Post the remaining 46 articles to the site.
    Create 2 more pages with pillar articles.
    Write another 45 articles.
    Post links to offers (When the site starts ranking.)
    Set up autoposting to facebook and twitter.
    Create some nice looking tables.
    Spend some time optimizing the design.
    Create 20 web 2.0 properties.

    Since this is a long term project I will not build to many links in the beginning and see how this site can rank on its own.

    Goal for this website:
    100 articles written before dec. 10
    100 articles posted/scheduled before dec. 15.

    100 weekly visitors
    1000 weekly visitors

    100 written articles
    100 posted articles

    100$ profit
    1000$ profit
    5000$ profit
    7500$ profit

    If this site has not made any money unntil february 1, I will literally blast the shit out of the site and try to profit short term, churn and burn style. After I reach 100 articles, the site will be on autopilot for 2-3 months, and I can focus more on the linkbuilding part. I believe it's possible to reach 100 written articles before dec. 10.


    Project 2 - Forex niche website
    When I first found blackhatworld I was promoting a forex/online stockbroker website. I was drawn to that industry by the huge commissions they offer for new paying customers. I was able to convert a few of them, but then they basically told me I could not continue to bring them that type of traffic.

    I am interested in the subject so it's will be interesting to write articles and learn more about the subject.

    The keyword research process was rather disappointing, but I know google keyword tool often shows lower MS in my language. As I have seen a lot of phrases in webmaster tools, that shows 0 on the keyword tool. I choos CPA and not revenue share option, because of the huge CPA payout. But I might change this later.

    I have nice methods to drive traffic to this site, once I am done with the landing pages I will begin sending traffic.

    Whats done:
    Keyword research
    Set up the website with about us + contact page.
    Posted 2 articles.
    Set up webmaster tools and analytics.

    To do list:
    Write 4 more reviews.
    Create 2-3 landing pages.
    Create 3 pages with pillar articles.
    Write 20 articles.
    Monetize the site after 20 articles, or if it start ranking.
    Start building web 2.0 properties.
    Start building links.

    Goals:
    1 New non-paying trader
    5 New non-paying traders
    10 New non-paying traders
    20 New non-paying traders

    1 New real trader
    3 New real traders
    5 New real traders
    10 New real traders


    I do not focus as much on this project as on project number 1. I will still keep track of the process.

    I have 3 domains for PBN, 1 really good and 2 okay. I will try to build out these in the near future, to use them with these two sites and some other projects I have going.

    If you have any question or reccomendations feel free to post.
    I would also appreciate any input from people creating authority sites in languages other than english.

    One last word on this journey. The offers that I will put on my site in project 1 pays anywhere from 30$-120$ so I don't need a lot of targeted traffic to make a steady income.
    For project 2 the cpa payouts range from 200-500$, but it's harder to convert for this website I think.

    HOLY SHIT! Thank God for the restore autosaved content, right now that's the only reason why this thread exists.


    11.20
    What I have done today is changed the theme of project 1 to a nicer looking theme. Written to articles for project one, and posted them. I will not spend much more time optimizing the design, as my focus is on getting to 100 articles. I will post articles when I have time, but I have written all my articles in google docs, so it takes time to add pictures, interlink and post them. I have laso set up googl


    Project 1:
    Articles written today 2
    Remaining 45

    Project 2 :

    I have been busy with other projects and holiday season, but have been writing a bunch of articles over the last few days. As failure is not an option, I keep reminding myself I simply can't allow my self to fail on my goal to earn big bucks from IM.

    Again this journey is meant to keep me focused, motivated and to break a large sized project into smaller chunks of work.

    Lost a little bit of motivation since the beggining of this project, but made money from two other projects because of Black Friday. And in my eyes there nothing more rewarding than to see a project finally pays off $$$ :)

    Update on project 1:
    Written 30 more articles.
    Remaining 10


    In other words I need to write 1.25 articles a day to reach 100 by dec 10 :)

    Today I set up the SNAP autoposter and connected it with facebook. Also finished another 10 articles over the last couple of days. Focus in the near future will be to add pictures, format to the articles, then post & schedule. The content of this website will be on autopilot anywhere from 2-6 months + depending on the frequency of posting.
    Will take a little break from writing content to this website now. But soon I have to start to write again to build web 2.0's.


    Project 1:
    Wrote 10 more articles
    Remaining: 0

    12.5.2014
    Reached first goal of writing 100 articles.

    Time to update this journey
    I am a little bit behind on my schedule, with the goal of 100 articles post/scheduled.
    Over the last days I have moved the content from Google Docs to wordpress. This was a PITA because the formatting changed a lot. It took forever to edit and add in pictures with relevant names, alt text and descriptions. I thought the hard work was done after writing 100 articles, I was so wrong. I have reach another milestone, my site now has 50 blogpost, 30 posted and 20 scheduled. Will try to get the other 50 articles scheduled over the next 7 days. Anyways will never again use google docs for content writing, will just write in wordpress and finish up the articles on the spot.

    Other interesting thing to mention, I am waiting for my dedicated server setup. I now have GSA, Scrapebox, CB. I know it will be a steep learning curve, but I have started reading about it, and have some free time around christmas break. I will utilize these tools to build web 2.0 properties, to rank both sites mentioned in this project.
    (And to further build my little empire to make more money.)

    Site:mywebsite search shows 27 pages indexed. These are only the pages, blogpost and author archive (which I think I have disallowed).
    Some of the keywords are showing up in webmaster tools in the 40-90 range.

    Project two is starting to see some traffic already. This is not the exact traffic I am looking for, more like information keywords rather than buying keywords, but it's always nice to see websites climb in the serp. I have started the process of monetizing this website, and the policies on the offers are really strict, they have denied my site two times, but at least given me good feedback on what needs to change.


    Project 1:
    30 articles posted
    20 scheduled over the next 5 days.
    Remaining post to be scheduled: 50

    Project 2:
    Posted one more pillar article
    Posted two general "news" articles.
