ok, thats a journey to follow and learn
Good Luck OP, Great Motivational Journey
Thanks very interesting journey, I follow it, and soon take action. May I ask if you spend and $$ on marketing your sites? For example bing, facebook marketing? Or pure SEO traffic, and no paid promotion?
I'm familiar with creating wordpress and ecommerce store, the only problem is getting visitors.. thats why I ask.
Looks really good.
Well its my own product (lets say it's a .pdf) that I created once, then now selling over and over again. So I would say so yeah.
I thought about it, but then decided not to.
Second time this movie is referenced in this thread, I should've called this journey "limitless"
Straight SEO, except I just bought some banner ads 10 min ago. I did some niche blog comments, YT comments and so on as well though in the beginning.
Update on site #1
I'm at position #6, #8 & #10 for my keywords, I think I've dropped a bit. It's probably because I added a cart on my header yesterday, everytime I update the page the site does a Google dance. Should be fine soon though, I'm not worried. Site #2 is what I want to rank higher with anyway.
Also bought some T2 links today. That might kick it up a little bit.
Update on site #2
Ranking position #14, #13 & #33 for same keywords as site #1. Should get to top 3 at least after SEO is done for this site (it just started).
I've made some research into paid (banner) ads. I cut it down to two sites to advertise on. One is currently running! It's a banner ad that is on impression basis. I added $5 to see where that takes me. This will probably work well for site #3 too.
Update on site #3
I've written content, then some more content, then sorted out layout for the three subpages. The site already looks better than my competitors, and I have more content than them too. Could probably rank it already.
The 3 subpages are almost done - Layout and about 70% off the content written/finished. Followed Yoast SEO for the ol' double green. Banners, meta titles/descriptions done. Home page needs a wee bit more content too.
Found some great keywords to target with my subpages. One has 17 KWF comp, shit competitors, 5k searches. The others a bit harder, but definitely doable.
Tomorrows to-do list:
Finish homepage, subpages and possibly start product/service pages.
Finish standard pages like About, Contact, TOS pages etc.
Maybe get more banner ads for site #2, do more research
Congratulations mate very nice success. For payment you could use Payplug they are very reputable, cheap, and simple to use. And since it's a card processor you won't have charge backs as with PayPal (less easy for customers if they pay by card)
I have some questions for you, thanks for your help.
1 . Are all your silo pages and subpages linked to the product page?
2 . what theme are your using? do you think an HTML site is fine for this?
Congratulations! All the best on your journey!
I have one question as you are using paypal as main payment method. How you will gonna fight with paypal refund cases?
As I understand your nishe for teamplates and bots, so you will gonna get some bad costomers. I know from my personal
experience that 90% of cases for digital goods purchased wins customers. I had like this problems before.
He's right you should find a way to protect yourself from clients like these
If I was in your place I would ask a lawyer to strategize
You can't risk negative reviews on the internet but people are a bitch behind keyboards
Fantastic....wish you well.
Just started my e-commerce website also. What were the things or resources you used to fully understand SEO? I need your guidance my master
If your selling a digital book have you thought of selling it on amazon as well?
Great sharing . Good luck to your journey bro
Actually, I've never had a chargeback on PayPal, but I had several (constantly) when using Stripe card gateway. And that was with standard products, not digital. I will not use Stripe again unless I want to lose several hundred a week again on scam orders. Stripe charges extra $25 per chargeback too which will bankrupt you, fuck that stupid shit and Stripe can suck my ass.
We'll see what I'll do. You know any good fraud/scam protection?
Thanks for the tip about Payplug, will have a look today!
1. Yep, to different products/services/whatever I'm selling.
2. I use different WP themes I found here: https://www.blackhatworld.com/forums/templates-themes.111/
Lawyer? Nah too expensive, it's alright.
Since it's a digital 'product', I'm not losing anything on chargebacks because I didn't pay anything for the product or shipping in the first place. Let's say I'm selling a .pdf, I don't lose anything on just emailing my customer the .pdf. Sure, they will own the .pdf + get their money back but whatever. With physical products/dropshipping you need to buy the product and ship to them, that's worse if they do chargebacks. That's why I had to sell my Shopify store.

Btw I'm FAR from being a master.
Definitely, and on eBay! Upload a YouTube video for it too with the keywords you'd target.
Let's pretend you're selling a eBook about giving birth in water (wtf) because the keyword "how to give birth in water ebook" has a few thousand searches and no competition. I would make my own website with my own eBook and rank it, as well as upload it on Amazon, eBay and other parasites to hope they'd rank on page #1 alongside with my own site.
Not sure if that made any sense, I just woke up.
I only worked 4 hours today. I've built 3 websites (probably 25-30k words) in a row and I haven't had time off for over 2 months with 16-24h days, yada yada yada. So today I feel like I need a few hours off.
(Alltought if I know myself I will probably be working on my website in an hour or two)
I still got some stuff done anyway.
Site #1 Update
Not much to say, had 2 orders. I won't update earnings etc unless I hit my goal of $200+ days, which will probably be a while.
Site #2 Update
The $5 banner ad ended up with 10 clicks. I had one sale, but I never tracked it (sigh) so I have no idea if it was from Google or banner ad. Will definitely try this again with different creatives, tracking and a bigger budget to see if there's some good ROI here.
This site is doing the Google dance a bit since SEO is in progress so daily order amount is very random.
Site #3 Update
Finished some stuff:
2 sub/category/inner pages done
Contact/support page done
About page done
Terms & conditions done
Footer menu done
Minimum 300 words/page, I followed Yoast on relevant pages
One subpage left to finish. And then a general 'swipe' of the whole website to make sure I haven't missed anything.
Will probably add more content as the days pass, but all in all the structure, layout, keywords and content is all in order.
I think this site might be finished earlier than I thought, however I forgot about creating all the social profiles so I will do that tomorrow. I will get social signals as soon as I'm done with the site, then start backlinks.
For anyone who's been following: You can do digital stuff with CPA locks too, not just paid products/services/whatever. Site #1 makes about $200/month from CPA locks. Sure, lower earnings than selling digital stuff, but there's a shit ton of niches and sites to make.
Some niches to get the ball rolling
Android/iOS app templates
Scripts for browsers or whatever else
Video software templates
Photoshop templates (all Adobe programs really)
Anti-virus (probably hard comp)
Bots (hundreds of niches within this niche)
Example keywords to rank
free photoshop wedding card templates
download sony vegas intro template
free discord bot
google chrome Twitter script
download best video software 2018
Bla bla bla. There's always some low competition long tail keywords in most niches if you mix and match different variants like "buy, get, 2018, best, free, download" etc. These niches works well with the "YT+CPA" method as well. There are heaps of unsaturated niches out there for CPA locks.
will follow it.
Site #1 has some noooice ranks now.
#2, #6, #6, #8, #10
#13, #13, #14, #16, #33

Hi love reading your posts!
I don't think this has been answered yet but how do you keep people from stealing your content if you even try people from doing that? PDFs imo are pretty easy to steal. You said somewhere you had a method or so for preventing this?
Glad to see things like this, make me feel like a looser if im not following
Just one question. Do people really ‘buy’ products when they do the search with the keywords “free” and “download” ?
(I’m currently brainstorming for niches and keywords. This is one question concerning in my mind)
Separate names with a comma.
