    Hey guys,

    I'm a University Student from Canada who just turned 21 and is looking to make 100$ per day steadily while continuing to train for football and finish school.

    Last summer I got fucked over by 3 different jobs that I worked, so I while I was working shitty overnight shifts and training I decided that I was going to write about something I was passionate about which is sports and to turn a profit from it down the road.

    I was debating whether or not to include this information, but I figure if you guys take the time and effort to do this you can steal my idea haha. My niche is Sports Top 10. I began by creating an Instagram Page, Twitter Page, Facebook Page, Pinterest Page, Tumblr Page. I have done lists from Top 10 White Players to Best Players 2015.

    So far I have found great success with my IG Page with 20k followers (I purchased FollowLiker 1 month ago and i'm now getting 200-400 followers per day). The beauty of what I do with my page and site and why so many are interest is because I hold weekly voting. After a top 10 list is completed I give all of my followers a chance to visit my website to thumbs up or down whichever players I include in the poll for that top 10 list. 75% OF MY FOLLOWERS ON IG ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 16!!! IF I CAN'T CONVINCE THEM INTO INSTALLING AND OR BUYING SHIT I DON'T DESERVE THEIR MONEY.

    My others follow with Twitter 7k Followers, Tumblr 6k followers, Pinterest 1.5k followers. The reason these pages are so successful is because I photoshop individual pictures for each player on the list with their stats and ranking.

    My Site get's 70% mobile traffic and a week ago my website suddenly stopped working for mobile devices. I am in the proccess of changing the theme, and i'm optimistic that investing 50$ into a good theme will improve my site tremendously compared to my free responsive theme I was using. That being said, my site averages 400 different users and 1500 page views per day(I split each post into 5 pages)

    I have been making 1-5$ per day with google adsense, but my with the recent purchase of the plugin Mobile Ad Injector i'm looking forward to the potential of CPA and other offers I can make with Top and Bottom Banners as well as pop up ads.

    Sorry for the rambling, but...

    THE PLAN

    For Website

    1) Purchase a suitable RESPONSIVE THEME
    2) Join suitable ad networks to offer on the ad injector plugin for mobile devices to make money
    3) Go back to each page that don't rank well and re-do the keyword analyzing and on-page seo
    3) Create Web 2.0's that help my pages rank better

    For Social Network
    1) Stay consistent with posting
    2) Find efficient and safe way to automate posting
    3) Look into investing in FollowLiker for Twitter/Tumblr/Pinterest
    4) Look into investing in PVA accounts and Proxies if looking to take to the next level

    THE GOAL

    1) 10$ per day for 7 days straight (ETA - 1 month)
    2) 25$ per day for 7 days straight (ETA - 4 months)
    3) 50$ per day for 7 days straight (ETA - 7 months)
    4) 100$ per day for 7 days straight (ETA - 1 year)

    The ETA's may be a little bit of a reach but I figure if I reach for the stars if I fall I'll land on a cloud haha.

    I'd love to hear questions advice or anything from you guys. The ETA may alter depending what other sources of revenue I can create with this niche. I will post any time there is an update.

    Time to knock some fucking heads, Rilese signing out.

    I decided I was going to invest 58$ into the theme Gameday by MVP Themes. 2 things caught my eye for this theme which was it's scoreboard widget and theia post slider. Now my site will be able to display live scores and display my content in a slideshow view like the site BleacherReport.com

    I feel like my site looks a lot better than before, and I can already see the difference in bounce rate with it jumping from 44% to 20%. I believe that I should be able to maintain a bounce rate of 20%

    My only problem now is offers through Ad Networks. I don't think Google Adsense is the answer, and I have attempted to join a few Ad Networks. I am with OGMobi and CPAGrip but am still a noob at anything outside of Adsense. I think my best bet is to rotate 3 different ads for both the bottom banner and top banner and see which of them convert best and then I can go from there.

    Wish me luck

    It looks like you have a pretty solid plan in place. Some ad networks to consider are Yardbarker and Media Strike. I've built some pretty successful sports sites and I've always used one of those two networks. Both can get you some pretty good exposure if you get featured so that's a bonus too.

    I looked into Yardbarker mostly and it looks like something i'm interested in.

    Today I experienced another setback because my site just did the same glitch on the Smart Phone that displays my site weirdly...
    If I can't think of anything else I may just re-build my site on a new domain. The one i'm using currently is a new domain I created this summer, so investing 100$ into an old sports domain might be a smart call anyways.

    I'm going to contact HostGator and see what assistance they can give because it is obviously not a problem with the theme.

    I SOLVED THE PROBLEM... I decided for once in this process to use my brain, so my idea was to deactivate each plugin one by one and see if one of them was affecting the display of my site.

    The problem was my W3 Cache plugin. I deactivated and deleted the app and it seems my problem is complete. This was a wake up call for me though and I will now look into backing up my site.

    Now that this problem has been solved I need to get back on track. All of the long tail keywords I attempt to rank for are low competition so I figure if I do some decent SEO then I should not have a problem ranking top 3 for something that gets searched 700 times a month if I do some minor backlinking.

    For my Web 2.0's I have made a post on wordpress and on hubpages. I will continue to try to post one or two web 2.0's per week to help me rank better for keywords.

    I have also seemed to take a little hit in the rankings because I took a break from posting on twitter, tumblr and pinterest. I need to stay true to my plan and post consistently to be able to get to my goal of 5k+ traffic per day which I believe can be obtainable within the next 2-3 months.

    I still have not figured out the Mobile Ad Injector and which offers to give, but that was due to my setback from the site. I hope to single out at least 6 different CPA offers that I can include as mobile ads for my site that I can test.

    So I have pretty much decided that I am completely done with Google AdSense. Even with me not having my offers ready via my Mobile Ad Injector, I would rather not even run AdSense at all because the daily revenue is garbage.

    Today I have 2.5k page views with only 0.11$ in earnings from AdSense.

    This is a wake up call for me again and if it weren't for all my bullshit schoolwork I have to cram out before the weekend I would show a sense of urgency setting up CPA offers.

    That being said, i'm disabling Google AdSense for good on my site. I would rather it work miliseconds faster than earning a laughable dime per day from decent traffic.
