    Hey guys,

    I read alot about SEO and earning money online in general in here.

    I chose SEO because it is very easy for me to achieve success since im skilled at that.

    I am actually sharing this method with a friend of mine because i am now good at SEO, coding etc.. and he is very well informed about the niche we chosen. (we did a bit brainstorming in skype).

    We are both German and so we chose a german niche with very low competition and like 30k searches per month.

    So he will write reviews about all of the products (I know he is talented for that because he was always better in school than me^^) and i am doing the affiliate part.

    Our products arent that expensive but as a start they are just fine ( between 20 and 50 Euros).

    Right now i am trying to build a Wordpress blog with siloing, Thanks to This Thread: (I can't post the link :/ It's from Jaksana03 called "[GET] Wordpress Silo Sites Using Free Plugins")
    So yeah, hope that we will succeed somehow and make some cash :)

    Well.. if anyone cares I finished the siloing task, purchasing the domain is in progress and the blog is setup mostly in general.

    Any suggestions for Plugins?
    For now i use: Wordpress SEO by YOAST and The Plugins From the Silo Sites Thread.

    Good luck on your journey mate :) It would be easy to rank for German language because I don't think there would be much competition, so imo we'll see you earning faster than usual. :) Keep us updated and don't stop in the middle of your journey.

    Actually your post made me continue writing here!

    So yesterday i decided to buy a paid webspace from the hoster i bought the domain from. I guess better spend a bit money so it is more professional and will therefor hopefully bring more money.

    I underestimated the writing skills of my friend, he is so fucking talented!

    The website is built up like this: Menu(chair, table,couch) as an example.
    Under chair menu , there is a submenu with some chairs of amazon with good reviews.

    He already wrote 2 Articles, today he will write more , tomorrow he is unfortunately in holidays but he promised me to write more articles there.

    I am actually searching for a nice free amazon plugin / product review plugin and trying to build a nice "things you could like too:" menu at the bottom.

    The Site is almost ready, the content is missing.

    I actually researched the keyword in the keyword planner again and found out that "best furnitures" is not being searched by 30k...it's searched 60k!! a month!!
    Actually there is one thing that confuses me: if i search for ideas in the google keyword planer it shows up 60k and if i click the option "view search volume" it just shows like 100 views per month..
    Which one is telling the truth?

    If it is the 100 one, it's not too bad since my pages will rank high too ( researched every keyword menu item and chose the most profitable one like top 5 chairs etc)

    I see the huge potential since most of the products vary between 80 and 200 euros.
    Yesterday i was way to drunk, and today i will be again since there are partys going on, but after this weekend i have 2 full weeks to concentrate fully on this project!

    Update:
    so my friend is mostly finished with his writing stuff, but he is very slowly i noticed..
    I created another niche site which has a lot less competition than this one and i hired 20 Articles for 200 Euro by some Woman in a facebook group.
    She already wrote articles for websites before, luckily me :)
    Her Articles will be ready in 1 Week. My friend should do the job earlier.

    If the articles are ready i'm trying to do guest blogging, creating forum accounts with the link of the website in the signature and probabbly creating some crappy youtube videos just to get a bit more traffic.
    I saw that there is some competition for the first niche, but i should make it in to the top5. For the other niche #1 shouldn't be a problem since there are some niche sites with medium SEO in my opinion and NO backlinks. So being better at SEO and creating backlinks to my page should be no problem at all.

    For the first niche i actually made a "misstake" i chose brown-shelvesdotcom instead of a brandable name like mybrownshelvedotcom
    On the second niche i wont to the misstake again, i like using the "my" word in the url since i can also use it to create german websites like mylaptopdotde

    Well yeah, here i am for days waiting on articles... I guess i write them better for myself in Future.

    Update:
    So today i am downloading both wordpress sites from a free webspace and move them to a paid hosting which is really cheap in my opinion.
    I paid 10 Euro for 2 Domains/ Year!! and hosting is about 4 Euros / Month
    So in total im paying 60 Euros for 2 Niche Websites!!
    I found out that Wordpress isn't using that much webspace than i thought, so i decided to pre-built another niche site^^(maybe more in future)
    Still waiting for the articles, but i'm already getting some today and in a few days i will have most of them :)
    Unfortunately i have to do some work for school(gosh i hate it!! it's sooo annoying and dumb)
    I will do at least as possible to have an acceptable grade and more time to build those websites!

    Small update for today again. Found out that it's way hard to find seo competition analysis videos / pages WITHOUT using tools you have to buy.
    I'm using linux, so most of the "awesome tools" won't work.
    But i guess that i know most of the tricks for on page seo and competition analysis to jump into this field :)
    I registered another domain in a niche with 1,6k searches per month. I will just create a simple comparison table to products and hope that the customers will buy something
    (just some sort of a test project to see wheter the users are really that..."uninformed" lol)
    I can't access the domain for now but i should within a few hours. Maybe some Euros are getting in with that crappy page, i thought it's worth a try.


    Question:How much do you guys earn per month with how many hours of work?

    This morning i woke up excited, hopefully my site is indexed #1 was my dream, big surprise it wasn't...
    The Site was indexed to google but has got no PA/DA so i noticed that something was wrong.
    I searched a bit and saw that the sitemap was the problem. I generated a new one and submitted my site to google webmaster tools and also the sitemap of my page.
    Actually i never saw anyone using this tool or recommending it, but i guess everyone assumes that everyone knows this knowledge.
    I also changed the description a bit to be not too spammy..
    Well, let's see how it goes :)

    I noticed the commissions are very small for EU countries, special in Germany. How you deal with this?

    Duhh.. Work was like an addiction the last few hours :D
    I SEO optimized EVERYTHING and added a bit more content to the site as well as i registered for google alerts and submitted the sitemap to google.
    I found a big affiliate Network also for Germany, so i might get into that since they offer many Services from Well known products in my country :)
