Fancy intro goes here. A little bit about me quick. My name is Conor. I am 20 years old currently. I live in South Africa. I never finished school because it was my dream to work and live alone. Which I did for about 6 months. Hated it. Manual labour for days. I hated it, so I quit. I moved in with family, and started doing odd jobs, making websites for people and learning SEO slowly. Recently, in mid January, I decided to stick Adsense on my blog (I love writing, and write about almost anything that comes to mind) I researched all the methods I could find on BHW to make money. Finally, I decided to stop procrastinating, and actually do something. After making less than a Rand on my blog with Adsense in January, I looked on Google Trends for some inspiration. I found a local trending topic with almost no competition and a good number of monthly searches (Over 9000). Long story short, I wrote an article for this keyword, got first result in Google and I am currently making R100 a day on average from this one article. My traffic is around 300 unique visitors on average per day. I've recently made my first R1000 in Adsense earnings. It's not much I know, but my plan is to carry on doing what I'm doing, double my earnings next month and the same the next month, till I can move in to that beach house I've always wanted! In case this is tl;dr, I've made a nice little list, to get you on to the path of internet riches. Research a keyword with low competition/lots of searches Write an article and monetize it Profit. I can't make it simpler. I've heard people say it's difficult to earn with Adsense. All I can say is stay motivated and you will succeed!
