Update for Monday:

Reached 100 today as promised, traffic seems to be picking up but nothing worth reporting. I am happy with the progress so far.. 1/10 down, 900 articles to go to reach the target. Doesn't seem very that far off at this stage. I might do more of these 20 posts in 2 days things, keep checking!

I am also doing my on-page seo techniques special very soon too.

News on the post I bought some social bookmarks for - it's now on the 2nd page. "20th" to be exact. Google seems to have indexed those socials right? =)
I am carry on doing some light manual seo experiments on that post... It can be our little lab rat, and then we can scale it to more posts.

Very interesting journey. I'm in the process of doing something similar, just wrote out the basic outline of the whole project an hour ago. But I will do keen keyword research for each article; I'll only go for potentially profitable keywords.

How is your domain? Is it related to the niche you're going for or is it some random but BRANDABLE domain? And will you be building backlinks to the homepage or to individual posts? How much are you paying your writers for a 700 - 1000 word article?

Good luck and all the best.


Hi Snooze - the domain is brandable, not a kwd related domain.

I'll be making backlinks to both homepage and each post. (more to posts to start with)

Well - I personally have a level of trust between me and my writers. And I read over each post before it going on the main website. I pay from anywhere to 10 to 20 dollars per 1k article.

I too am interested in how this is going. I'll be watching this thread, good luck on the journey man.

Thanks mate =)

I really love the way you introduced your journey OP. Sure it is the way to go to have a steady passive income. Perhaps you should try affiliate links combined with adsense, you could end earning a lot more.

Anyway, I wish you a BIG success with this very interesting journey.

Thank you for your kind words, affiliate links wouldn't work well in my niche unfortunately - but I will be selling ad spots privately as well as with Adsense once I begin getting some heavy traffic.

Do you have an income goal you are trying to meet with this site? I'm curious what a site of this magnitude would be able to bring in.

Still following. Great to see you pushing ahead with the content. You starting to pick up more unique visitors and have you pushed forward with any SEO yet? Also curious to know what you are doing social wise or does this also come later?

I can't see why you would wait to do SEO/link-building. Having been a writer and now an SEO consultant, I honestly think you're missing out on traffic and therefore money at the moment. Would like to hear why...

$100 a day should be pretty realistic around this time next year. The goal is to get it sooner than that, we shall see. :)

Good to know you are still following mate. Visitors flowing in for sure. As for the SEO one of the categories of my site got listed in a pretty hard to get in directory so that is pretty cool.. and I have also self made and self distributed a data visual (something like a infographic) but that didn't work out pretty well. (Need to find some one to distribute it) and the social bookmarks on that one post. That's pretty much all the SEO done!

That's just my personal choice .=) I take a different approach every time and this is the approach I decided to take with this with this website. Look at it this way.. a new site doesn't instantly gain backlinks naturally.. first it ages a little.. grows content-wise and once other sites notice the content they begin linking to it.. all of this comes within time and I am trying to make it as "natural" as possible to google. Not saying this is a smart or the best way to do it, its just an approach.. and as mentioned before I will be doing some light seo... seoing a site with a huge amount of high quality and unique articles allows me to be a little aggressive with backlinking later on as well
