    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!

    Looks pretty solid! You'll probably want to dilute the anchors and drip feed more social signals - I'll be keeping up on this journey. Good job man
