That's what I'm shooting for instead of a specific money goal. Main Goals: Rank #1 on Google Make Money Have Fun (I'm looking at it as a video game where you have to beat other players to level up. I like competition.) Plan: No tricks. I just plan on getting there by really, really focusing on content and backlinks. I have a plan for each one. I'll give details of how I'm doing each one as I get there. Now even though I don't have a specific money goal, I do have a plan on how I'll monetize of course. I'll get to that later on though. If anyone sees that I'm doing something wrong, feel free to tell me. Thanks for reading! Day 1 was yesterday (12/16/2013) So far I've read guides, done my research, read guides, did more research, did my research on keywords, found a niche, did more research to make sure it was a good one, did research on what people were looking for with this niche, came up with my site idea, and purchased my domain and hosting.
