    Hello BHW,

    This is my 2nd journey here. First journey was a complete miss, I worked on a niche that had decent traffic but monetization of that niche was non existing. I tried (adsense, clickbank, cpa). I made some bucks but it wasn't worth the time.

    Anyway I'm opening a new journey, this time I will focus on PPD, CPA niches. The more I look around the more niches I see in this category. 4 years back I made some decent money with PPD and youtube, so I'm starting again.

    Strategy:
    - I already have 3 New sites. Lets call them KONZUM, MERKATOR AND LUCIJANA (I'll use KONZUM Site for well known niche and MERKATOR AND LUCIJANA to test out new niches).
    - Build backlinks, KONZUM soft backlinks, MERKATOR AND LUCIJANA Harder backlinks (I'll take the risk).
    - Youtube (Find niches with less yt flaggers).

    Tools:
    - Camtasia Studio for YT
    - GSA for Backlinks -> Web 2.0 (3 Articles)

    Goal:
    - Steady 30$/day - Main Goal
    - If goal above reached, chase the 100$/daily


    Work Time: 8h-12h daily, Weekend OFF... Wish me luck!

    DAY 1
    -----------------

    I'm exhausted. I finally finished my new site (Lets call it ZUMBU) to test out the niche. I worked almost 20 hours on this project. The site has 5 High Quality landing pages, all custom made + tutorials and FAQs. Really HQ.

    Next two days I will create 20-30+ high quality videos for youtube to promote it. I spent many hours just to make this landing pages, however I still didn't test the waters. I hope it will go phenomenal. Even if I fail I got 2 new niche IDEAS that came to my mind while I was working which I want to test soo badly, but I need to test this one first before I move one.

    Off the project. Just checking the rankings of site KONZUM, Last 7 days I was sending FB, Twitter and G+ signals to the page that I want to rank. Results are promising: Less Dance + Better Rankings. New Rank #9.

    - I will build few more backlinks to it. (Manual Comments with naked link + 1 HQ web 2.0)
    - KONZUM is just a one month old website so I will proceed slowly.

    Added a new article on site MERKATOR (also new). It has around 10k monthly searches with a weak competition, it could easly bring $10-$20 daily If I rank for it. Post is indexed but i'm not in first 300. Guess I overoptimize it. I will fix that and see how it goes. Still waiting to start making backlinks.


    JOB FOR NEXT 2 DAYS - Test the ZUMBU Fully
    ------------------------
    - Upload 20-30 HQ Videos
    - Send some views, if possible.

    - Add 1 Article on KONZUM, + Add articles on new HQ Web 2.0
    - Build more social signals

    Thanks!

    I didn't use any views provider since this will be my first youtube experience after a 4 years break. I don't have money to invest, so I will try with some free views providers for start.

    TIP: Pick your keywords from YT Suggested Searches. I helps a lot.

    BTW. Do you recommend buying views before or after 301? I Need to re-test the game :)

    -I really confused about (Free views Providers) do you mean reviews from new seller ?
    -Please clarify also that one (TIP: Pick your keywords from YT Suggested Searches. I helps a lot.)
    -About YT views i really tested more than 8-10 suppliers most of them unsafe ,
    -TIP: Wait for BigBuddy gig it will go online at 1st of December (he is most trusted supplier ATM ) it's my idea
    -it dose not matter before or after 301 it's just depends on quality of views !

    Regards

    I meant free views from exchange websites, such as addmefast and others.
    Yes, I usually pick tags from YT Suggested searches.
    For Example: If you type your niche in youtube search box you will get top searched things.

    Niche + keyword one
    Niche + keyword two
    Niche + keyword three
    and so on.

    I usually find 20-30 most searched keywords around my niche and use them as tags (keywords) for my own video.

    Thanks for the TIPS, I will surely use the service once it's released.

    DAY 2
    -------
    Today was a very bad day, unproductive.

    This very morning I got some stomach problems and I couldn't sleep at all. I spent one hour just sitting on toilet. I don't want to go into detail with this cuz you might puke on your keyboard :D I felt unable to work today, but I worked anyway.

    What I've done today:

    Site: KONZUM
    - Optimized a landing page on the site "KONZUM" (Poor cr rate). Ranking still dancing around 10#-20#
    - Created a new 7 days campaign for social signals boost.
    - Build few manual backlinks
    - Added new articles to web 2.0

    Site: ZUMBU
    - Recored 4 Tutorials
    - Uploaded to youtube
    - Waiting to boost views.
    // All competitors have 20k views + up to 100-200k. My videos are 10 times better but I have lack of views. Tomorrow I will create 15+ videos and upload them. I don't mind them sitting around, when I get some money I will boost them with views and likes and hopefully start receiving natural views.

    I'm not satisfied with my work today. I hope tomorrow will be a better day.

    Thanks! Yes, I just started with youtube. I'll use youtube for some fast traffic and SEO for longterm traffic. I'm still new in both of the fields. It will take some time until I get some daily routine.

    Subscribed, I like the idea of having a site to fall back on in case your other 2 sites get penalized, just test and test to see what works.

    Thank you all of you for supportive comments, I really appreciate that.

    Yup, youtube can be awesome tool just to test the niche. If the niche works, you can easly find some keywords to make an article about and try to rank it. If the niche has a larger potential you can build the whole site about it.

    If I rank "KONZUM" Site (Inner post) into top 3 spots I will leave it and build a new one. Google is strict nowadays so I don't want to burn the site trying to rank all other pages and keywords.

    The more I think about ranking websites, the more I think it's better idea to build a completely new site around one working niche rather then having multi-niche sites with hundreds of posts.

    Wanna know what I really like about you?

    The fact that what you tried didn't work out and everyone could see that but you come back and try again. THAT my friend is why some people make it while others pack up and go home.

    Well done mate :)

    DAY 3
    This Friday I worked on LB, nothing special. I couldn't write a post, because I worked longer and my friends were waiting for me. So I'm writing it today. That was a 3rd day of my journey.

    So this Friday, I felt a little bit lost. Where and how I want to proceed with my journey? I felt like I somehow lost the grip that I had before. Willpower is still there, but it's much easier when you know what you are supposed to do, right?

    Guys, resting is really helpfull. I enjoyed this weekend pretty much and new ideas came to my mind. Ideas were free flowing, I didn't think about my job.... that's why they are "better" in some ways. A busy mind can sometimes be stupid or too much "in the box" to see a larger picture. (Just observing my experience).

    Im droping "ZUMBU" Completely. I can see clearly now.
    -First of all I spent too much time on that site and on the making of videos.
    -2nd Competition is to high, I thought I could get some views from YT but I was wrong.

    Hey guys even If I spent 20 hours of making that site but not banking a signle dime, I still respect it. Site is awesome and landing pages are good too... to be honest I learn alot about making great landing pages + I made 4 voice over tutorials which I never done before.

    Site "KONZUM" - The Prime

    - Ok, I'm on the first page right now for targeted keyword. This is the keyword where I want 1st spot. I will be happy with top 3 but I will not stop until I get the 1st. If I get a top spot I will bank around 15$+ daily.


    and guess what next? When I rank KONZUM I only need one more site like that to have steady $30/daily :)

    - Site MERKATOR - I don't work on this site.
    So I guess I overoptimized the article with too much of a targeted keywords (Fixed it on DAY 2). Yesterday It finally showed some rank 70-110. Article is still new (3-4 days) on inactive site, so the rankings are fine now. I will build backlinks here and there through the month.

    If you are not ranking in TOP 300 with 0 backlinks prolly you overoptimized the page. I'm talking about low to medium search niches.

    Site LUCIJANAOK, This site has some potential. I uploaded couple of vids earlier. They receieve couple of views per day, since the niche is not popular on youtube and I have something like 4 pages on the site with spinned content. Google sent me a couple of visitors too.

    but, the best part about this niche is that it converts really nicely about $200 RPM. I will use this niche slowly trough my journey.




    My work plan:
    1. Build more links (Slowly), Daily social signals, 10 Videos on YT, 10 Videos on Dailymotion. Goal: 1-3 spot #KONZUM
    Pros of Videos:
    + Videos will bring some traffic.
    + Bring more no follow links.
    I think videos linking to your site could easily be 1 positIve signal towards better ranking.

    2. Start a new wesbite simmilar like KONZUM and rank it. (I will build site with 10+ pages around one working niche).
    3. Upload some vids, add some posts on LUCIJANA while I don't get a greater plan for this niche.
