Code name - PROJECTx Lol 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!
