    ok, I'v decided to start a journey here. I have a serious problem with my mind. It has become a bit of a loose cannon!
    I tend to throw everything away on stupid stuff all the time, problem is I can't stop. You could call it extremely impulsive non controllable behavior.
    So I hope that creating a thread here will give me the discipline to keep focused.
    I have a stable income at the moment from temporary job, but that will only last for a few months.

    Main Objectives:
    • New blog to reach 10,000 page views a day
    • $7K in savings
    • Increase in knowledge

    I know this could turn into a failure, but for me it's all a good learning curve. The idea is not to invest too much and keep saving on the side. I have studied and dabbled in SEO & web dev & design many years ago but things have changed, much forgotten and I need to refresh myself in some areas.
    Current Balance: $70

    Blog 1
    - Main keyword has 80,000 monthly searches
    - google cpc is very low ( I know not ideal )
    - I hope to explore cpa options

    Savings
    - currently $0 as I have $70 but that will be gone in the next few days on food/fuel/rent
    - Current monthly income of $1400
    - Current monthly expenditure of $1400 ( This will need to change!)

    Skills - I want to improve & become proficient in the following
    - php
    - mysql
    - css3/html5
    - adsense
    - SEO
    - Content writing ( My English is not perfect )
    - TEFL ( If I move abroad one day I wish to have a backup survival plan! )
    - Building good contacts
    - BH techniques
    - WH techniques

    I have not set a time limit, that would be too much pressure for me. Any encouragement to help me keep focused is welcome. Any jokers, please find another thread to make jokes. :D

    what will you sell, or what niche are you in for that targeted traffic?

    10.000 views a day? buyers/impressions/clicks?

    your need a really healthy bank balance to reach that traffic margin and the blog/website must be very interesting.

    I think firstly do a course on keyword research and YouTube then click bank and the traffic sources .

    good luck can be done if you no how or get the right traffic from.

    Not planning on selling anything. I have other affiliate websites for that.
    For this project the blog will be in the entertainment niche...
    I have already spent a few hours researching keywords, and had some ideas for other words which fetch a higher cpc, but lower searches. I would have liked to use them also but for sake of time & money, I just want to concentrate on 1 blog for the moment.
    Another reason behind choosing this niche and keyword is I already have some free services that people like and I have highly active social media pages around the niche with really targeted fans.

    I mean 10,000 pageviews per day. That is my first target. So for example 5000 unique visitors assuming each person views 2 pages.

    so what the stats so far?


    you can earn millions, if you use social media websites for traffic.

    and they say the best is ((pinterest)) for traffic

    so maybe you need to setup a 2 tear system so the main money earner don't get banned.

    No stats yet on this blog.
    The website has just been published, and barely listed by google today for the first time.

    I would like to explore pintrest and tumblr more! at the moment I only use fb.
    I just have a few thousand fans but they are all real and targeted.
    But I can't rely on facebook because the reach is patethic so I will def check out pintrest
    My target for this journey is to get the regular traffic, but the 7k saving will come from other sources.
    Tbh I never expect to earn millions, my challenge is to get good rankings & traffic and then explore monetizing options.
    As I mentioned the cpc is very low for this kw

    Free SM traffic is fine if you actually have "TRAFFIC RESOURCES" if not, use a paid ad (if you can afford it) and know how to use it effectively! Practice! Don't worry, I am going thru a few loose cannon mental expressions now but keep clam and focus on your goals! I hope you make it! God Bless!

    Yes, I will try to expand my social media network. I am working on something right now for that to really try to increase the social presence .. and will know if it will work how I need soon. Facebook suspended my ads account so i won't be quick to pay them any money.

    I will pay somebody $2 in btc each week if that person can send me 2 pm on friday and saturday to remind me to keep focused and keep expenses at a low! not much but someone might apreciate

    How did you get your Facebook Ad account suspended? I keep hearing about this and it's kinda disturbing to hear that over and over again...

    I don't really know exactly. Their procedure was all a bit strange.
    Might have been becuase I promoted several leapviral posts with paid ads, or else a login from different location
