Well guys my journey is already a month in, but I had to post it because it's becoming more and more interesting. Essentially, the overall goal of my affiliate journey is to make a revenue of $1000/month in 6 different affiliate programs for a total of $6,000/month passive income. I have put the different affiliate programs on 6 unique landing pages that are spread evenly across two domains that I purchased new. I'm going use SEO to get traffic to the site and make my sales. The method I'm using to rank is a PBN network of approximately 30 sites. I'm going to link to each website with all 30 links and 10 for each landing page. Each landing page has a different anchor text profile, because I'm also trying to find out what is the best way to rank an affiliate site with a PBN. The only thing I can disclose about the affiliate programs is that they are all in the health/fitness niche. Here are the anchor text profiles that I've gone with, Website 1: Landing Page 1 1/10 Exact Match Anchor Social Signals First Link is Exact Match Landing Page 2 10/10 Exact Match Anchors Social Signals Landing Page 3 5/10 Exact Match Anchors Exact Match Anchor Every Other Backlink No Social Signals Website 2: Landing Page 4 5/10 Exact Match Anchors First 5 Backlinks are Exact Match Anchor Text Social Signals Landing Page 5 10/10 Exact Match Anchor Text No Social Landing Page 6 1/10 Exact Match Anchor Text No Social Last Link is Exact Match Anchor Text (sorry about the format, couldn't figure out a better way like a noob) The most important thing to keep in mind is that the 10 PBN links going to each landing page across the two different sites are drip feeding over a 10 week period. The PBN is comprised of highly powerful,relevant health/fitness websites. The two main things I'm looking for is if I will be quickly penalized for over optimizing and the power of social signals on the site. I started the journey on September 7th, I'm going to give updates for the landing pages when they are in the top 100, 50, 10, 5 for their respective keywords that I'm ranking them for. The health/fitness niches I'm ranking for have from 10,000 to over 100,000 searches a month. So far I have hit the six pages with social signals (if they have them) and 4 backlinks. Here are the results. Landing Page 1 Top 100 Landing Page 2 Top 50 Landing Page 3 Top 50 Landing Page 4 Top 100 Landing Page 5 Not Ranking Landing Page 6 Not Ranking It hasn't been long enough to make very serious concrete conclusions, but social signals are looking crazy powerful. I have not turned them into money sites yet or signed up for the affiliate programs I plan to sell, because I'm waiting to rank on the first page before I go ahead with that. By the end of the 10 week period I should be on the first page for all 6. If I'm not then I will surely be going with some much more aggressive SEO techniques. Please let me know if I left out any important information, because I know I did. I would love any suggestions or questions since this is one of my first journeys. Let's get this money!
