    Hey All,

    I'm always on here checking out what people are doing, but never contribute myself so I thought id try and change that now with sharing my journey.

    So I had a niche price comparison site which was running on auto pilot making around £100 a month, until the hosting company I used had a major power outage causing many customers on VPS to crash and lose their data. This resulted in my site losing everything (Lesson for everyone BACKUP YOUR WEBSITES!). I was so frustrated I just decided to leave the site and focus on my other projects.

    Now a few months after this has happened I've decided to completely restart the site again with a complete new look, so I thought what better way to do this than by sharing with the black hat world community (hopefully this will also encourage me to not leave it on auto pilot again!).

    My site is going to be a niche price comparison website using a my php script that compares affiliate data feeds integrated with a wordpress blog. I will also create a directory in this niche listing local businesses to hopefully generate more income with featured adverts.

    I will probably use some of the services on this forum such as articles and maby a few seo packages so I will also share with you my experiences with the ones I use.

    The first steps will be to:

    Design a logo - In Process
    Setup a splash page with a newsletter sign up form whilst I develop the site - Done
    Install the new databases for the script and setup all the affiliate data feeds - In Process
    Launch website - In Process

    I've already spent some time the last few days on social media and have a twitter (18K), Facebook(3k) and instagram(1k) account so I will start to follow and engage with some people, groups to try and give my website some hype once I launch it.

    Anyone have any questions let me know :)
