Hello guys.
This is my main journey and the most important that will [hopefully] give me the financial freedom I'm looking for.
A little history:
So, from the age of 15, I made money by uploading online movies on different websites in my country. I was just emailing people and telling them I want to be their uploader. I made probably 12k $ in a year and then one video hosting service which was my main profit, closed.
From that moment on, I tried a lot of other methods on the internet, but failed.In January this year, I came to this forum to find out gold information about everything. Link building, SEO, social, and most answers to all of my questions. I now know why I failed so many times: didn't pay attention to keyword research, on-page SEO, backlinks strategy & more.

This journey is about my Movie Site. (I'm currently having 7 but I'm going to rely on this thread to the biggest one with few mentions to the other ones when they rank or something big changes to them).

What kind of website do I have?

I have an automated movie site: every NEW movie/episode is posted without me having to do anything. All I did from the beginning and I will do from now on is getting constant traffic. The domain was bought this spring so my website is a new one. :)

What is my traffic by now?

I have constantly 2,5k-3k visitors per day and growing easily each day. 70% of them are Tier1.

How do I promote my website?

I'm using social media to promote the website - having a few twists on every one of them, but I'm relying just on one mostly. I'm also doing parasites and give them some Blast to rank them - I'm failing at this for now, but I will keep improving myself until I will rank some long-tail on the first page, because I really believe parasites work great for movie sites.
Besides social media, I'm creating/researching for good backlinks every day to rank up my website.

How much I invested by now ?

DOMAIN: 65$
Shout out on social media: 20$
Social media accounts: $150
Proxies: 10$ per month.

How do I make money ?

I'm actually not monetizing this website yet - because as you see, I don't have the traffic I need to monetize. I'm planning to monetize when I will reach maybe 10k visitors constantly per day with maybe Push Notifications, 1 Pop-up + CPA Buttons. I'm not sure yet. :)

What are the next plans for increasing traffic on my website?

Actually, more parasites, more backlinks, more shoutouts maybe, and I will consider PBN's and/or expired domains.

What is my first GOAL?

My first goal is actually reaching 5k$ per month. This will help me a LOT to scale this easily. :)
I hope one day soon I'm going to be able to go back to my home country - I have lot of plans to do with these money, lot of things to invest into, this will only be my first step in IM.

I'm going to update this thread 2-3 times a week with analytics, improvements I do on my website, and maybe the other ones.

Thank you and good luck everyone in reaching your dreams!
Consistency is the key!!!

It seems that you already have the knowledge and plan on sight to make it.
Will follow your evolution and hope you make your dream come true.

With uploading movies, 1k $ per month for 1 year. In rest, 0$. Maybe a few bucks with AdSense with one project I abandoned on the gaming niche. I have a good domain there too, but I realized that niche really requires good backlinks or a good youtube channel to grow, so I put it on stand-by. I can sell the domain for 3k$ but I don't want to, because I really believe that the project will be a success in time. For now, I'm just focusing on the movie site, and I recommend to everyone to focus on only one THING because if you focus on many and spread yourself over lots of methods in IM, you fail. Why? Because you have to give interest 100% to one thing in order to make it work and get some experience.

If I'm looking back in 2020, yes I totally have some knowledge now. I gain it by questioning people in this niche, reading all journeys, but I also come with some twists. Even if my traffic can't be considered high, I think I did a great job for the first 2 months of my website.
Thank you so much.

You should use pdf parasites to get more visitors. They're ranking better than everything else.
Hello. But also kind of hard to register on those websites - I really can't figure out - I'm thinking you have to be a student at that university for example. I also looked to buy accounts on them, failed. That's why I'm still working in understanding these parasites. :)
Thank you!

There is a diverse set of use cases. Some of these sites have signup option, some are hacked, some have bugs, and some others are student/teacher accounts. Most of these pdfs don't last long. So, these are treated like churn & burn accounts when a new movie releases.

You should try YouTube comments method. I know for sure that it's working as many others in the niche followed it successfully. I still find these comments ranking on some trailers.

You’re totally right about parasites. Never thaught of them being hacked, haha.
I also tried youtube comments, I don’t know if works or not because I have to write the domain like “ d . o . m . a . i .n . x y z “ in order to avoid comment deletion.
I also tried with some shorts I see they don’t remove but I currently have 0 visits per link even if I boosted them with SMM. I don’t say it doesn’t work, I have some comments which actually got 10+ likes because I add some value to them and maybe they really search for my domain on google.

Gonna try this again but in BEAST MODE these days and gonna update you with the results. :)
