    Hello everyone, I've decided to start a journey consisting of making a webmaster blog - then ranking it - then making money off it selling ads, and other methods.

    I've been struggling for money since a pretty long time, and since all the work I've done until now does not make me much revenue at all, I've decided to take another path and see if I can succeed with it.

    I understand that this method will take months ATLEAST for me to be successful, but at the end, it's going to be paid off pretty well, if I can do well!




    • Basically, I'm going to make a Wordpress blog, with a decent domain name, and a decent premium theme.
    • First, I'm going to go through the process of finding a domain to see which one suits the best.
    • Second, I'm going to go through the process of finding a premium theme to see which one suits my blog the best.
    • Thirdly, I'm going to go through the process of finding the best WP plugins to see which ones suit my blog the best.
    • And then, I'll just update you with what I'm doing and giving reports of how I'm doing with it.

    Please note: This is a completely whitehat journey and will not involve ANY blackhat methods. AT ALL. (or maybe just a little bit)




    Cheers everyone and have a good day!

    PS: My goal? 1000$/month.

    Okay, still stuck with the domain idea.

    Have an idea anyone? Shoot me a PM! :p

    Otherwise I'll just update you all with what I'll go with as soon as my brain stops smoking and finds something. :p

    Are you looking to start an authority site? If so there is someone on the marketplace that does keyword research. I bought from him and I got some good ideas.

    goodlluck mate. But I feel that , you have to reconsider your niche as you say that you are not succesful in any methods. The one you have selected is highly competetive.

    Indeed, but in this one, I will keep failing and keep failing until I do not fail anymore. :)

    DAY 1: Purchasing the domain and getting the content

    I've decided to go with -snip- as it seemed like the ideal domain. Been busting my brains off to think of it. :)

    Second, I've used the old Wayback trick to get myself some epic quality articles related to the webmaster and SEO niche, without any costs at all. Feels good to be back in the free side of the world once again. Got myself 10k words worth of content for my blog already! And those are unspun articles which are 100% unique!

    Thirdly, I've purchased the PLACE theme from themeforest.

    What I'm plannign to do here is install the website ASAP and install all the necessary plugins and then start posting the content right away. :)

    Cheers everyone!

    How do you plan on ranking your blog on Google? Are you going to just build Tier 1 back links since you're only doing whitehat seo?

    Hello, I plan on ranking on Google from various kinds of tier 1 quality backlinks, such as social signals, and directory listings. I don't know really, I'll see once I do everything. :)

    Using an old Wayback method. :)

    BASICALLY:

    What I'm planning to do for my blog in terms of SEO is completely Whitehat (or as I said, a little little bit of Blackhat. ;p).
    This method consists of the good old hard way of doing SEO, such as:

    _Only tier 1 links (maybe a little bit of tri-tiering :p)
    _Twitter tweets, Facebo
    ok shares, Google +1's, and everything social media related, to get me some good free social signals
    _Promotion on different promotion forums
    _Buying ad space in niche related sites
    _Guest posting
    _Guest blog commenting

    And so on. I will update you each time I've done something. :)
