    Hi,
    Welcome to my thread!

    First of all, I'd like to say that english isn't my mother tongue, so you'll probably find some mistakes while reading this.

    My situation:
    I've been trying to make money online for quite a long time, but never had much success. I made a few bucks with Adsense and with Youtube + CPA, but only ~$2/week. After some time, I started to learn SEO, build some sites with Content Lockers and saw that I was able to make cash using this method. I made around $120 in two months. I always failed to build a steady income stream. October 2011, I turned 18 and thought that now the time has come to really get things going.

    Why?:
    One of my biggest problems is my impatientness. In the past, I wasn't able to stick to one method. I stopped before I actually started. What I am trying to say is, that this thread is definitely going to motivate me. In addition, I hope that it also motivates others, if I reach my goal :p.
    Not to forget that I also need the help of the community. I am not a total beginner, but there's still so much I have/want to learn!

    My goal:
    As mentioned in the title, my first goal is $20/day. I have chosen 20 dollars per day, because I think it is definitely realistic. It's not too low and not too high! If I am able to build a steady income stream of $20/day, then it will be easy to scale up.

    My method:
    Content Locking and SEO. Only thing that worked out for me yet.

    Things that I own that will help me on my journey:
    -Scrapebox
    -$30 in PayPal
    -Market Samurai Trial
    -Sescout.com for Rank Tracking
    -Hostgator Baby Account
    -Adscendmedia Account


    Thanks for your attention, I hope you enjoy reading this thread. If you have any questions, feedback or anything else that you want to say, please let me know.

    Have a great Day!

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    DAY 1(01/04/12):
    Niche research! I am going to use Market Samurai & Google Keyword Tool. Hopefully, I am going to find something that interests me and that seems profitable.

    If you can rank for a keyword with good demand and use content locking - that's some of the sweetest autopilot cash ever!

    //UPDATE
    Hey Community :)

    DAY 2(01/05/2012):
    Spent quite a lot of time on keyword research, but now, I've finally found something worth trying. Unfortunately, there's already one competitor using content-lockers. However, the competition ain't that hard and I think, I can rank for this keyword.

    Some information:
    Exact searches per month: 5,400
    SEOC: 1,580,000
    SEOTC: 98,500
    SEOUC: 70,600
    EMD: Nope :(
    Niche: Free stuff
    Competition:
    (can't post images yet, so please follow the link :) and replace [dot] with a dot obviously ;))
    img6.imagebanana[dot]com/img/nfs0ld5x/competition.PNG


    What do you think? Worth a try, right?

    Thanks in advance and have a great day!

    Either do a blackhat duel or a new keyword.

    your plan seems very nice but i doubt the income of moeny at that rate and pace, you know , no one can a claim that to provide the forum postings always at the same rate unless and untill its not a human but a machine. There may be variations in the incoming posts at the forum that will change your money flow. But the work spirit is awesome, get going and earn some good bucks.

    //UPDATE

    I had a conversation with ritesh and funnily we have the same keyword. As I don't want to compete with another BHW-member, I also spent the 3rd day doing keyword research. It was definitely worth it. I found a keyword that is even better :p

    DAY 3(01/06/2012):
    Information about my new keyword:
    Exact searches per month: 9,800
    SEOC: 420,000
    SEOTC: 26,100
    SEOUC: 16,900
    EMD: .ORG/.NET available
    Competition:
    [​IMG]
    I am definitely going to pick this keyword. Competition is easier than the one I wanted to use before. In addition, the keyword also receives more searches!

    Going to bed now, got fever today :(! See you tomorrow!

    Ya competition is looking pretty easy there. Some big sites but they don't have many links or any to the page.

    //UPDATE
    Hi everyone :) Yesterday I had no time at all to work, so the next steps were done today!

    DAY 5(01/08/2012):
    Today, I bought the domain. I've installed Wordpress on my Webspace and created a Contact and Privacy Policy page. I quickly installed a few plugins and configured them. Additionally, I added my site to Google Webmaster Tools and submitted the sitemap, to get it indexed ASAP! The site is nearly ready to start. The next step will be the creation of content. Below you can see a list of plugins I installed.

    Plugins:(explanation)
    -Fast Secure Contact Form(fast contact form creation)
    -Google Analyticator(Traffic Analysis/Statistics)
    -Google XML Sitemaps(self-explanatory)
    -Official Statcounter Plugin(Same as Google Analyticator, but for Statcounter.com! I wanted to try out both, never used statcounter before)
    -Pc Robots.txt(fast robots.txt creation)
    -Platinum SEO Pack(plugin for all the onpage-seo! awesome plugin!)
    -Sexybookmarks(bookmarking)

    The site is basically finished, only the content and the locker are missing. And of course the traffic :rolleyes:

    Hope that it will be indexed tomorrow!

    Happy sunday evening! See you tomorrow!

    DAY 6(01/09/2012):
    Today, I ordered two articles from a seller here on BHW. Costs: $10. The first one is for my site, the second will be spinned and used for WEB2.0 creation.

    Unfortunately, the turnaround time is three to four days. I will use this waiting time as good as I can to have everything prepared when my articles are finished.

    Keeping you updated,
    MadMX

    This is definitely a good method, you can always make money with content locking.

    But when do you expect results? Will it go fast or rather slow?

    GOOD LUCK MATE!
