    So after years of just lurking and soaking up information I am finally getting started on making money. My goal is $1000 a month from adsense to start off with. I have started off reading "The Law of success in 16 lessons" by Napoleon Hill I am just half way through this book and I am trying to sort out my mindset and have a list of about 10 more books I need to read.
    Basically my first website is set up my homepage has just over 1000 words, and so far has 6 posts, my website is currently just over a month old. In this thread I will try to update as much as I can however I am a uni student so I will try to update daily. This isnt going to be another one of them threads which is abandoned half way through, I will make sure I make money with this site and make sure I will achieve my goal!

    Abit about the website;
    I found a gem of a keyword with EMD however I rushed into this and bought the EMD domain when I could have bought an expired domain with good metrics (Noob mistake) The keyword shows a score of in 23 longtailpro, the stats of the keywords is a cpc of $10.11 and monthly US searches of 5400. I have also found various other keywords to rank for.
    My pages have all been indexed in google and no seo work has been carried out so far and I am getting about 1/2 visitors a day. All the seo work will be outsourced and it will start soon. I believe I will be ranking on the first page within a month or 2.

    Currently I have no budget set in place for this website and below is the exact amount I have spent on it so far;
    monthly costs;
    Hosting £12
    Misc £44
    One off costs;
    Domain £14.29
    content, themes, programs £127
    account £35

    I will be ordering 10 articles at lengths of 650 words costing £47

    So in total so far I have spent about £340. This money cannot be seen as a bill but rather money that has been invested in myself.

    Once I have got these 10 articles they will be added to my website at a rate of once a week or maybe twice

    Will be updating soon! Lets go get this money!

    Good journy and good luck.
    You said that competition on long tail pro is 23. can you share your competitors analysis report. you dont need to show your competitors domains. just tell me the top 10 competitors DA,PA, PAGE LINKS, MOZ RANKS, PAGE RANK AND AGE OF DOMAIN. Again i'm saying that you dont need to show competitors domain. just details enough. if you hesitate to show here just PM enough.

    Quick update-

    working on trying to get on page to be almost perfect
    pbn links are added but not indexed
    created social media pages (fb, Twitter) so far

    However the problem I am having is hard time of indexing pages and my posts could anyone suggest how to get over this obstical? I have always updated my sitemap

    also how do I improve site speed? I am working on compressing media so far

    Traffic is still the same hardly getting any, again not expecting any traffic at all

    Waiting to get my articles then will be posting these at 2 a week

    Quickest method I use is to post the link on social media. Doing this generally gets some of the pages indexed within a few hours. It does depend on your content though and it can take a few weeks. More backlinks = more chance of being indexed quicker.

    Another update for you guys I told you I won't give up! still waiting for my articles to be delivered should be a few days now. I am working nights so I need to catch up on sleep lols. Today I bought social signals for my site (will be dripfed) and this should boost ranking hopefully. Still getting hardly any traffic, I have got 5 pbn links set up but not had any effects on ranking. Woo-rank rated my site at around 55ish and still have a lot more optimisation left to do yet. Adsense ads are up and running but haven't checked earnings as it will be nothing as the site is hardly getting any traffic at the moment.

    Will update once more work has been carried out

    peace!
