I'm using affiliate programs to achieve my goal. My goal was originally $1M this year but I had nothing to start off with so there was a big delay at the beginning. After some big health problems and drive to improve my life I've decided to get back into IM fulltime. I'm 18 and heading into university for Business Management. I'd like to make money on the side while I'm at university. I've made $xx,xxx before, but this was when I was 13-14 years old so I'm a little bit out of the game. Let's see what I have to start off with. This journey started a few days ago, but I'm only posting now. - Amazon associates accounts in a lot of countries - New authority site I've just made in a not so specific niche (you all know what the item is), with a SSL cert - 5 Articles, 2 posted so far - 10 Tumblr blogs with many external backlinks, none of those useless PA28 ones, which have all their links deleted when you re-register them - 7 PBN domains, some of which I found myself and some from a user here on the forums (one is 301ing at the moment) What is the strategy? At first when the site is new, I'll have next to no authority so I'll need to target easy keywords. This is not that profitable, so I'm targeting a combination of keywords ranging from 2400 to 50 searches per month. - Making sure that keywords are being properly targeted and evenly distributed - Making sure that the website is fully optimized for Google in terms of sitemap, duplicate content, page speed, SSL, no overoptimization - Setting up the site in a way that spreads link juice equally only on pages that matter - Using automated tools to make backlinks to every post for indexing purpose without me even thinking about it, in a non-intrusive way (content syndication, social posts) - Interlinking with exact anchors only - Web 2.0s and PBNs for that very necessary boost (I will be using only my own pbn for all projects unless I'm able to find a provider that is clearly safe and clear of pharma, game hacks, adult and gambling) - Link diversification is unknown for now, I will learn as I go on If Amazon doesn't work out then I will move on to Clickbank or some other things that pay well. Wish me luck.
