    Hi BHW Members,

    I have decided to document my journey towards PPC success. Starting from $0.

    My Tools:
    1. PR2 website
    2. 1 - 3 hrs a week (99% autopilot)
    3. Multiple CPC accounts (family members)
    4. Website traffic SEO included
    5. 1 month of patience (testing website traffic)
    6. FREE Traffic from high PR websites (my BH scripts in exchange for high PR traffic)

    So I bought a PR2 directory submission website to get a piece of this PPC hype. Website was 45k Alexa rank with 275000 members. So I patiently wait and watch my PPC account for 1 month.

    Month 1: Per day traffic
    Unique visitors: ~ 500
    Pageviews: 1500
    Clicks ~ 2-5
    April Revenue:~ $6 / month


    Feeling like Jack and his magic beans I decided to rev it up. Im zero at SEO and no experience with IM but some little programming skills. So I
    1) Write a script to make my users more interactive with my website ;)
    2) I had other blackhat scripts that I gave BHW members in exchange for their high PR popup traffic. Saved me $$$ on SEO and traffic.
    My traffic shot up and my Alexa Rank dropped to 35K in few weeks (from 45K). My CPC slowly increased and so did the clicks ;).

    Month 2: Per day traffic
    Unique visitors: ~ 3000
    Pageviews: 4000
    Clicks ~ 120
    May Revenue:~ $280 / month


    Coming Soon: JV for BHW members. Make $200 - $10,000 a month with my METHOD and your TRAFFIC.

    Will add screenshots when I'm back from my holidays.

    This is going pretty well. Any chance to know for:

    - how much you bought your website
    - you had crazy bump off traffic so what seo you did
    - what the scripts do
    - and what the type of site (like review, blog etc)

    Cheers

    - how much you bought your website
    I spent $235 on the website, domain etc from flippa trusted seller. Hosting $6 a month. I buy traffic from fiver to dissolve high CTR for around $20. Monthly
    expenses is around $30 - $50.

    - you had crazy bump off traffic so what seo you did
    I didnt do any SEO. The seller had done SEO before sale and backlinks were around 104,000 links from MOZ authority sites. The traffic bump started when I
    exchanged my Viral Black Hat scripts for traffic. The traffic was popup, iframe redirects etc, from high PR sites.

    - what the scripts do
    No comments :p .I don't want to saturate this method.


    - and what the type of site (like review, blog etc)
    The website is a Directory submission website. Has 50 - 70% Indian traffic and rest USA and EU visitors.

    Update for June:

    So at the beginning of June I noticed a 10-20% drop in clicks per day. So I decide bring in the reinforcements. A micro niche website bought from BHW thread. CPC of between $0.8 to $4.5. Next I buy some traffic from (BHW thread) to test. The traffic was good with a bounce rate of 4%. Now I test the CPC.
    Results:

    South Africa - $4.37
    USA - $1

    While all was going well; I feared the worst "Account Ban"; so I opened another account in the name of my family member and then this happened.

    Month 3: Per day traffic
    Unique visitors: ~ 2500
    Pageviews: 7000
    Clicks ~ 80 / 80
    June Revenue:~ Account 1 - $270 / month | Account 2 - £276 ($434) | Total - $700 ish

    I buy traffic from few BHW sellers and 5rr.

    Well for my method it depends on the amount of traffic and their interaction with the website (Bots dont convert). The niche decides the CPC value of each click.


    Thanks. Stay tuned. I will be doing JV's soon which will open opportunities for BHW members.
