Hi BHW, my name is Firdaus Sabain and I from Malaysia, I has been reading alot of Amazon Affilliate and Adsense Journey on BHW forum and decided to building my own authority site with very limited budget ($200). I hoping to reach my $200 (Montly) goal after 6 month building the site. By posting this journey, I hope I can track the progress and not lose hope (lose hope is my biggest enemy)...... After a month building the site and researching the competitor, I know that I in very COMPETITIVE NICHE. But it does not make me want to give up, Instead I will be targeting low competition long tail keywords that related to my site topic. My plan is to adding 2 Viral Intend Article (Adsense) and 1 Buying Intend Article (Affilliate Amazon) every week until I have about 30 article on the site and continue added the article every weeks, then I will start to do OFFPAGE SEO. So far I already has 10 article in my site. I really hoping that this journey will be jackpot for me since I has building alot of site and most of them is failure. And sorry if my english is bad. HAHA So far I've: 1. Buy new brand domain name and namecheap hosting 2. Found a talented writer, I using Hekke Guide 3. Set up Wordpress/Themes/Plugin - Flexmag Wordpress Theme - Insert Headers and Footers - Table of Content Plus - W3 Total Cache - Yoastseo - Sumome - Akismet 4. Submit my site to high quality directories - R-TT Directory - So Much - Directory World - All The Websites 5. Set up social profile for facebook and pinterest. (Facebook : 600 Likes Pinterest : 400 Follower) 6. Automate my social posting using postcron. Tools That IM Going to Using: Buzzsumo Pexels (Free Stock Photos) LongTail Pro (Keyword Research) Semrush Trial (Keyword Research + Competitor Research) MOZ OSE (Page Authority & Backlink Competitor Checker) Postcron (Automate Social Posting) Monetization With: Adsense so far ($0) Amazon so far ($0) Total : $0 Expense: Hosting & Domain Yearly ($19.73) Content ($25) Total : - $44.73 What To Do Next: 1. Adding more content. 2. Blogger outreach. 2. Finding more long tail keyword with low competition using semrush and longtailpro. 3.
