    A little bit about me
    I am 21 years old and i live in Australia. I joined Blackhatworld in High School as i was always fascinated about making money online. Bought a few niche sites for fun but never earned anything as i wasn't a patient person. In 2013, i started a Bachelor Course in Information Technology at Uni and now im graduating this year. But i was never interested in working as i felt that making passive income is the only way to go in life, not working my ass off for someone else. So here i am back at BHW ready to put my 1000% effort into making a living online.

    Dreams and Goals?
    Obviously to make money right? Personally, i think any passive income that i would be able to live on is perfect as the most important thing in life is HAPPINESS. There are thousands of Rich people who make millions but aren't satisfied and are always unhappy with their personal life, while i see so many Poor people around the world living life as if they just won the lottery. But of course, more money is good money right? I do wish to make more that $10,000 a month as i've always loved travelling and love giving out to people especially in poor countries.

    Milestone 1: $100/Month
    Milestone 2: $250/Month
    Milestone 3: $1000/Month
    Milestone 4: $2500/Month
    Milestone 5: $10,000/Month

    Knowledge and Skills
    I believe SEO is the important thing in getting traffic, unless im wrong? I wouldn't consider myself as a SEO Noob, but a Novice. I have yet to still learn everything but i do understand the basics of SEO such as backlinks, social bookmarking and PBNs. Would really love to learn so much more about SEO so i can work on projects myself instead of paying others to do this.

    Budget
    Currently have around $500

    What i Currently have?
    I currently have 3 Websites, with 1 Site being a ccTLD as i'm trying to put my SEO skills into learning. All these websites was only started two weeks ago and have no rankings within the top 50 or 100. There is no traffic on them. I have low understanding of DA, PA and Trust Flow but have bought a expired domain name with the following
    PA: 9 DA: 51 Trust Flow: 5 Citation : 22 (Can someone tell me if this was good?). I don't even know if this was good or not but i decided to grab the domain and try to rank it in the niche.

    Site 1 : News Website
    PA 0 DA 0

    Site 2: Medical
    PA 9 DA 51 TF 5 CF 22

    Site 3: Medical (same keyword as Site 2)
    PA 0 DA 0
    ccTLD

    Monetization?
    My Websites are all earning from Adsense. Will consider Amazon Affiliates in the future

    That's Everything i've got to talk about in my First Post, Will be trying to update regularly on my Journey. I may be asking questions on this thread so please help me with this Journey :) .I just wanted to leave a quote here for everyone here.

    Macro Patience Micro Speed

    Hey. It sounds like you're ready to take action.

    I would suggest you to divide your goal into smaller, but reachable milestones. For example:

    1. 50$/Month
    2.100$/Month
    3.500$/Month
    4.1000$/Month
    5.5000$/Month

    This will help you to be motivated, because it can be hard to focus on your goal if you don't see any results for some time.
    Below each step you can write step by step actions that you'll take to crush your milestones.

    Good luck :)

    Those milestones seem reachable. You'll need to step your game up with each one though - what gets you to one milestone most likely won't get you to the next one. Good luck :)

    Can you tell which social bookmarking sites you will use?

    Currently still living with my parents, so that is still fine. Because im an Amateur in SEO. Currently i built 1 site suing a expired domain. I am not sure if using an expired domain with an established PA and DA is still able to rank easier than a fresh domain? Can anyone tell me please?

    I have used Fiverr to outsource my Social Bookmarks, have used one with around 200 bookmarks. Can Social Bookmarks be of low quality? Should Fiverr be used for social bookmarking?

    Moz stats are notoriously unreliable and easy to manipulate with crappy links. Domains with good backlink profiles are almost always easier to rank than new domains with no backlinks at all.

    I cannot vouch for fiverr as I wouldn't trust the expertise of someone charging so little for their services and certainly would not buy domains from there, I prefer to find them myself.

    I can tell you from experience that using expired sites is faster to rank. I did that with my 4k a month journey and then recently, i bought an expiring domain for the registration fees + godaddy renewal charges. Published 3 articles and all of them are on 3 position. But you have to check what the domain was used for before, how many drops, the links pointing to it. etc.
    Another tip. If the domain is ranking on top 10 to 30 for some KWs, then I know the site was not hit.

    How long did it take for you to reach the top 3 positions? How many drops? Do you mean by the number of backlinks that are getting dropped everyday? How big of an impact will that affect the rankings?

    Bought a SEO package from the BHW marketplace to try rank site 3. Will be another few weeks till i start seeing some results. In the meantime, i've been working on a clothing brand and will set up the website soon.
