    Hello everyone!

    I am Jonathan from the Philippines. I made this journey thread, just like others, to give my mind an inspiration to work more. Anyways I am very unlucky when ranking an amazon site (targeting keywords). I spent almost $400 per site (wasted - I have 5) and they are only sticking to page 2 or 3 and honestly I am very very tired of it. So I decided to make a niche authority sites.

    I am a big fan of both Arganrecords and Hekke journeys! Both of them are awesome. Well I'm gonna use what I learned from them.

    Honestly I am struggling to make money right now but I am using a method that earns me a good money so that I can pay my bills every month and which I am gonna use for the authority sites. Last month I earned $600+ but I doubt this month because the offer expired. Anyways I will strive hard to earn money every month :)

    Plan:
    1. I will target keywords with atleast 50 searches a month (Semrush), I will not target a keyword having 1000+ searches.
    2. Use only keywords having commercial intent like buy, cheap, affordable, best etc..
    3. Build backlinks every month using branded keywords or naked urls only - guest post, web 2.0, social media to add authority to the sites.
    4. Make articles as many as I can.

    I already found 2 niches, the product prices are $100+. I already ordered articles from a writer that I hired - only 500+ words per article.

    Wish me luck!

    Good luck with your journey.

    You said you wasted money ranking 5 amazon site to page 2 and 3? Do you think it is waste? If you can rank a site to page 2, then you can rank it to page 1 with time.

    Yes, but I am so tired of spending money. I would still try to rank them but not now. I'll focus on my new websites first.

    UPDATE 1

    Yesterday I bought 2 branded domain names.
    Already designed my website including social media buttons.
    Made facebook pages and twitter accounts for it.


    Will order 2x1000 words homepage post today.
    I'm still waiting for the articles from the writer that I hired.

    I am target very low monthly searches keywords, so I guess 500 words article is enough. Got very limited budget too. Thanks anyways! If I have good budget I will make it 1000 words per article.

    Thanks bro!

    UPDATE #2

    I received my first 50 articles from a BS writer. The articles are spun (I am so stupid for paying him) but luckily I found one in the freelancer website and he is really good! Anyways I'll edit those 50 articles though they are going to be short like 350 to 400+ words instead of 500+ words. Well lesson learned.

    Already posted 1000 words of homepage article from 1 of my website. Posted 5 articles (ones that I edit) too with very low searches a month. I'll post 5 articles per website everyday until all of the articles are posted.

    I'll search for a macro niche site too. That's all for now!

    Have a great day everyone!

    Be careful when hiring writers. I am a writer myself and I did a little test through Upwork and Freelance to see what is my competition offering. I posted a job and out of 56 applicants, 32 offered spun or grammatically incorrect content. They, however, have plenty of positive reviews which I am not sure how they gained with such writing.

    I would also be willing to see the method that is making you $600+ a month. I am in need of quality information as always and I am more than willing to learn something new.
