    Hello, I have made money with CPA and content locking before in the movies niche. Now I want to try to do it in games niche using YT + Blogspot. The number $215 is calculated with realistic data I have had. I took into consideration the more modest scenarios to get this number.

    The goal is more than just the money, the goal is to learn working. Yes, learn. I believe it's a skill like any other. My plan is to create 3 niches every day + 1 hour for my other side project. I have calculated that atm, I can create 3 niches the fastest in 4 hours. That means I plan to work every day for 4+1 hours. I have never worked like that before and I think it's the biggest thing that has held me back from moving on with my life.

    I plan to create 1 blogspot blog, 1 application and 3 videos for every niche. I will plan to promote only 1 of those videos using HR views or not promote them at all. My goal is to get 4 visits per every niche I create per day. I hope it's realistic. I know some blogs will not get any visits at all but I hope some would get more than 4 and that the average would be atleast 4 visits/niche/day.

    I will be using s h a r e c a s h for content locking. I have heard that they are stable, the oldest and respectable network. I chose ppd because I don't want to hassle with choosing the offers and replacing the non-working ones for international traffic. If the EPC is really bad, I will test the traffic with Adworkmedia and make a decision then.

    The end date for this first month goal will be 9th of October.

    I will try to update this thread as often as possible but I assume on some days I might not have time or I am very tired. Working 5h/day is something new to me and I assume it will exhaust me quite a lot in the first month.


    DAY 1

    So, today I did niche searching, found 10 niches. I have no idea if they are good or not but looking at the search results, a lot of first page videos had many thumbs down.. so, people are downloading the stuff. I also did my side project. I am testing how fast I can humanly do it. Took me 45 minutes today. I was not able to create new niches today because hostgator was down the night, they migrated to new nameservers and I freaked out in the morning cause all my sites in other ventures were down and I was loosing money. Spoke with the live support for hour and a half. Fortunately my sites went back to live after that. I did uploade two videos for my niche. Yesterday, I created 3 niches. I will write the stats for them here.

    Niches created: 3
    Total visits today: 4

    The 3 extra visits are from one niche I created day before.

    Hey, good luck with your journey! Btw, is there any specific reason why you will be uploading 3 videos per niche?

    Thank you all for kind words and motivation!

    I am uploading 3 videos because 1 could get deleted, 2 would be good but with 3 I can rank for more keywords. More than 3 is just too time consuming keeping in mind that I don't even know if I get ANY visitors from the videos. I am not doing any niche research, I just take some niches I find and make a blog+videos+fake gen. As they say: throw enough shit against the wall and some will stick :D

    DAY 2

    I am really proud of myself that I managed to keep up with my goals of creating 3 niches + 1 hour for my side project. My first niche was created in 1h 16m today and the third in 1h 4min. I want to test myself with every niche, to get faster and faster. You should see me, I am burning these "alt+tab" keys on my laptop :D

    The most time consuming is creating the blog and video rendering. My computer is almost 5 years old so..

    I managed to do my side project with 36 minutes today, yesterday it was 45, the day before 50. I don't think I could do it any faster though than that, kinda impossible.

    Total niches created: 6
    Total visits today: 26

    [​IMG]

    The CTR is lower than I thought it would be. Only 25% clicks on the offer. Could the appearance of the locker make a difference? Also, for me, the sharecash widget is loading really slow, sometimes like 2-3 seconds even after clicking the button.

    It was quite a boring day. I created 3 more niches and 9 videos + my extra project. I am a bit discouraged as I am not getting that many clicks and it's really boring and tedious creating that many niches in a row (creating them like a machine). I don't know how much time I will have tomorrow but I will try to create 3 more niches and then order new yt accounts and views to some of my videos. The thing is, I need likes at the same time and my addmefast account currently doesn't have any. I have to bot them fast..

    DAY 3

    Total niches created: 9
    Total visits today: 15

    [​IMG]

    Out of the 17 visits 3 are mine.

    Ok, I calculated the number of visits I am getting and the amount of work I am putting in and it did not make me happy at all. The numbers will be at the end of the post. I decided to check how many results are there when typing in my niches keywords. Five out of 9 were very hard to rank (above 30k results in youtube, some had 400k results). Some videos were ranking but on page 4,6,2. Those were the ones which had search results around 1k-20k. So, I think this would be the ballpark for me to test. I will add 5k HR views and 100 likes (maybe social signals also) and see if their rankings improve. I really hope they will cause atm.. I am getting almost no traffic at all.

    I ordered 100 new yt accounts today but I have not received them yet. I will have to buy VPS and set up a addmefast bot there. I have bought one a year ago that is updated but it's pretty shit.. hogs memory like crazy and earns way too little. I had one firefox script that worked well but I have to search where that script is and if it works anymore.

    I am thinking of finding niches with really low competition, like..under 5k search results and see if I can get visits that way. I am happy if I get 10 visits/day from those niches but I am afraid it would be more like 2 visits.. will see.

    I will change my work scedule also. Instead of creating 3 niches per day and getting 1-2 visits/niche/day, I will create 1/day and then spend the rest of the 3 hours or so searching for good niches, boosting the videos etc. I think this way the proccess will be more interesting and profitable.

    DAY 4

    Total niches created: 10
    Total visits to sites today: 12

    [​IMG]

    Out of those 16 visits 3 are mine. 12 visits over 10 niches and 30 videos isn't quite the result I was going for.. even in my most modest plans.

    DAY 5

    Today I continued with my new plan of searching low comp niches and trying to rank them. I actually had two niches already searched before but today I checked if they were lower competition or not. One was and I created all the stuff needed for it. I also bought a VPS and put an imacros bot running there. The bot itself works really well but now it seems that imacros itself crashes (not because of the script). I don't know what to do, sometimes it works fine and then, out of the blue it just freezes and does not even let me to stop it (pressing "stop" button doesn't work). I put a megayoutubeviews bot also working on it. The internet speed is really good (60mbit download) but 1 Gbit of ram is not the best.. Well.. it get's the job done if the imacros would be working well but I can't run a lot of stuff there I guess. Will see how much can I take advantage of it. I also bought new vpn because my old one got expired, it was pretty good (ninja vpn) but I want to try something else also. I ordered 5k HR views to two of my videos and let the addmefast likes run at the same time. Will see how they will rank. I will order HR views for couple of more videos before I go to bed, just need to get enough points in Addmefast.

    My sideproject has been dissapointing and I am not sure if I am going to continue with it, I will have to wait and see if it is worth it or not. I also got my new 100 yt accounts batch so that's good.

    I am a bit down atm because I am getting almost zero traffic but I hope it will change soon when the HR views have done their job.

    Total niches created: 11

    Hey, the whole niche thing is great, but I think you should find one good niche. Invest time and money into it. Rank for the top five positions with five videos. Buy a decent domain name relevant to the niche and make it look professional. Other than that, just stay motivated! Internet Marketing is one of the best jobs, because you choose your own hours!

    The gaming niche is already very saturated, but kudos to you for making a move and choosing a niche to go ahead with.

    Sorry for not updating for 3 days.

    I don't want to choose one niche because if I invest tons of money on the one video then I could be flagged the next day and then I loose everything. I would rather have 5 niches bringing in the same money.

    DAY 6, 7 and 8

    I did not create any new niches these three days. To be honest, I did not do anything work related much at all. I ordered 5k HR views to 6 or so of my videos. They all have proved their rank but it's too little. If the video was on page 4 before then now it's on page 3. It's an improvement but it hasn't brought me any extra traffic per se.

    The views have arrived yesterday so I really do hope the rankings will improve more cause it's a bit ridicculous if my niche has 5k search results, the first page has some videos under a month old and have like under 5k views and my video is not ranking. God I suck at seo. Like.. wtf am I gonna do, start ranking videos that have less than 1k serch results?

    I would really appreciate if someone could help me a bit and give some guidlines on what competition is beatable and what not and how many views usually does the trick etc. I don't want to spend 20$ on a niche that has 5k search results only to find out I can get 5 visits/day from first spot.

    I will create one new niche today and wait for the others to rank.. I hope they do rank.

    Total niches created: 11
    Total visits to sites day 6,7 and 8: 28. That's 9/day.

    [​IMG]

    That is 3 days of stats. I have to change my locker template, 17% CTR is way too low.

    DAY 9 and 10

    Not much has happened. I have searched forums and asked people on how to rank videos. They all give the same answers or a quiet on how they do it. My plan will be to just take one niche and throw massive shit towards it and see how it ranks. It's probably just burning money but I am sick of waiting and seeing nothing happening. 5k HR views with 100 likes does very little to rank videos with 5k search results in YT. I don't know how others do it.

    Total niches created: 11
    Total visits to sites day 9 and 10: 17. That's around 8/day.

    [​IMG]

    My new locker seems to be a "hit" also. From 22% CTR down to 11%. I don't understand, I was sure the new locker is better looking. I will get some more stats and then make a decision about changing it.

    I have been waiting to see any changes in rankings for the past days. I tried also comment spamming to one of my pages, I got 25 visitors from it, about 4 clicked the offers and 0 conversions.


    I am going to search for better niches. The ones that have traffic from good countries and lot's of searches.

    there are some great backlinking services here in BST section, why dont you check them yourself? by the way you can make your goal come true if you have few quality videos. I wish you can make some more money soon.
    Cheers!
