    Hey guys,

    Long time lurker here and I'm about to embark on my first ever IM journey.

    I've decided to take the Amazon Affiliate route since it seems the most straightforward and once I experience success with that I will branch out into other areas of IM.

    I've already chosen my niche, it's in the "Home" category on Amazon and I'm planning to target mostly female buyers who tend to spend more money online and are more likely to purchase the products in my niche.

    Rather than pick a single product or micro-niche my goal is to create an authority site about a wide range of home products.

    I have found a few keywords I will target with 5k word posts over the next few days. The keyword search volumes for the US are as follows:
    "best keyword keyword" = 4400
    "best keyword keyword" = 9900
    "best keyword keyword" = 5400

    For each of these 3 keywords there are additional keywords and long-tail keywords that add up to more than 15k searches each.

    Other than "best" type of keywords I will also target review keywords and informational keywords to look better in search engines.

    So far I have hosting and a domain and I plan on writing a 5k word article tonight to get the ball rolling.

    My goal is $300 per day or around $10,000 per month.

    Well, let's see what I can do!

    Good luck with your site. I know this for sure, if you write 4k+ words, you will be ranking in the top 20 to 50 within 3 months, and with a little more links, then you will get the first page. Assuming your niche is a little easy to rank.

    Day 1 Update

    Hey guys, quick update for today.

    I added 4k words of content for "best keyword keyword" and made it as a wordpress page.
    I then wrote a 1k review about one of the products "keyword review" and added it as a post.
    Both are interlinked and indexed on Google.

    I haven't added any Amazon affiliate links yet. Is it a good idea to add them right away or should I wait until the articles have ranked?

    Tomorrow I plan to add another 5k words of content or so and once I get to 50k words of content I will begin to build links.

    when you say 4k words you mean 1 article 4k or all the articles are 4k words?

    I wrote 1 pillar article with 4k words and a subsequent review article with 1k words. Total of 5k words between 2 different articles.

    Good luck with your journey.

    I also have this question :
    "I haven't added any Amazon affiliate links yet. Is it a good idea to add them right away or should I wait until the articles have ranked?"

    Day 2 Update

    I added 6k words of content to the website today. All reviews regarding the products from the pillar article I wrote yesterday. All of them were immediately indexed by Google using the Submit URL tool.

    One of the keywords, "product review" is already ranked at number 27. All of the others are between 90 and 110 but the main keyword hasn't ranked yet.

    No traffic to report yet, only me checking the site on different web browsers.

    I'm going to go comment on a few blogs now using the "linkfinder" website search engine.

    Still wondering whether or not to add affiliate links right away or wait. It seems there are two different schools of thought in that regard but I'm hoping to hear from some BHW experts on that matter.

    How do I get 6k words in one day? I dictate them using Dragon Dictate for Mac (pirated). I have a USB mic and I lay in bed with a related tab opened just regurgitating the content into my own words. Seriously...I spent the day laying in bed dictating..how cool is that?

    I can dictate about 3k words per hour and then it takes me about 1 hour to edit them and probably an additional 15 minutes per post to format, add images and do all the relevant SEO.

    OK so I tripped the moderation system so I'll try a new rewrite.

    Day 3 Update

    Added 3k words of content. Hope to add at least 6k tomorrow. WP dashboard is showing visitors from search and I set up Analytics as well.

    I'm also going to add the affiliate links to all my posts tomorrow. Hekke said he starts with them and he's someone I'm taking inspiration from and I trust his guidance so I will do the same.

    Day 4 Update

    Hey guys, I added 4k words of content today. Only in reviews. Tomorrow I will add another pillar article.

    I was doing some KW research and I came across a competitor who is ranking #1 for 5 different buyer kws related to my niche. His site only has 11 backlinks, none of which are any good, so I'm going to improve on his content and steal his rankings.

    WP dashboard is showing 3 visits from search today so far. I'm going to go through and add the affiliate links right now and see how that goes.
