    Hello to everyone once again. I haven't been active on the forum at all but I've been reading damn near every day. Today I'm proposing my journey to earn $50 a day through passive income.

    Before I continue, I just want to mention two things.

    1) I am in this for the long run. No shortcuts, no get rich quick schemes. This is all going to come down to very hard work daily.

    2) This journey began about a week ago officially but I'm creating this thread for advice, motivating others, and motivating myself. My inspiration for starting came from Dayloco's thread "Dayloco's Journey To $40 Per Day Passive Income".

    Let's begin.

    I bought a domain about two weeks ago from Namecheap along with a hosting package. Since those two weeks I have been able to construct a fully desktop/mobile optimized website with WordPress. I bought a premium theme called MH-Magazine about a year ago and managed to recover those files and apply them to this site.

    So far the site is very well SEO optimized. I use the Yoast SEO plugin for WordPress which tells me both the friendliness of the SEO and the readability. Every article I have written so far have gotten the green light in both of those categories. I have already written 6 1000+ words articles, each full of images, interlinking, and linking my products (Amazon affiliate).

    Moving on to my niche. My niche contains only high end products, nothing below $500. The keywords that I will be using have a nice search to saturation value (About 50k searches and only 5mil results up on Google).

    That is about everything done already, here are my plans.

    - 1 article written per day. Takes me about two hours to write, find images, and get links all done.
    - 30 minutes of building backlinks per day after writing said article.

    Although the list is small, make no mistake that a 1000 word article per day is a tedious process. Wish me luck whoever cares or even better yet, advice on how to do this better.

    Till the next update everyone!

    Sounds good I really hope you make it.
    Was wondering what do you usually in 30 minutes of backlinking

    Good luck on your journey! I would recommend using kwfinder. It will tell you how easy or difficult a keyword will be to rank based on multiple factors. It's been super helpful to me.

    Just be careful rushing straight into off page seo stuff:

    "30 minutes of building backlinks per day after writing said article."

    I'd let the site settle naturally before doing off page.

    How long should someone wait for a new site before doing off page seo? Also do the same rules apply to domains owned for years?

    Varies from peoples own perspective I'd say.
    I tend to sprinkle social signals before doing any off page stuff.

    I then have a particular seo service I go to for new sites after a 2 or 3 week period, but I'm still adding content etc.

    Good luck with your journey. What strategy are you following to build backlinks in 30 minutes? The most I can do is to share on social media, comment on CommentLuv enabled blogs and few forum links. Although, I still let my article get indexed before rushing to off-page SEO.

    Knocked out my 7th 1200 word article and spent roughly 30 minutes building backlinks. I'll answer questions and make reiterations now.

    I actually use Dragon Naturally Speaking to help me write my articles. Pirated a version and it saves me a bunch of time when "writing" now. Highly recommend checking it out.

    I opened a couple of social media profiles and all I do basically is self promote/make those profiles look natural. So what I'll do is write an article > link it on a bunch of accounts (Tumblr is my favorite, if you fall into a reblog chain, that is backlink heaven) > use those accounts like a normal person (So things like commenting, liking, etc... basically building the profiles).

    Thanks for the suggestion. So far I've been sticking to Google's Keyword Planner because they have no restrictions and I would assume they have the most accurate numbers, but I'll check it out!

    I plan on getting indexed THROUGH off-page SEO actually. At the moment nothing big, not buying any packages or anything that can screw me over later. Just really whitehat tactics and social media signals. Tumblr backlink building mostly due to how reblogs spread like wildfire.
