    Hi guys,

    I decided to try IM and after reading some of the journeys and threads here, I started to build a Micro Niche Site yesterday. I plan to rank it and monetize it via Clickbank and adsense. I have about 3 hours per day to work on this, but I work pretty slow, cause I'm not too fast at writing content.

    My first goal: to reach $10 per day in 3 months or less.

    What I did yesterday and today:
    - Picked a micro niche related to health with around 30K exact searches/mo in the US with low competition.
    - I got the exact match com domain and used one of my hosting accounts.
    - I installed wordpress and plugins following @hekke guide.
    - I wrote a general article on the home page (fixed page).
    - I wrote an article targeting one of the long tails.

    What I plan to do next:
    - Write an article for each long tail (around 10-15 in total).
    - Do off-page SEO (I will need help here, because I only did on-page seo before).
    - When I start getting visits, I want to add an optin box or relevant lander links to get leads and redirect them to CB offers.
    - Also will add adsense, because the CB offers are limited.
    - I will continue off-page seo to keep ranking until I reach 1st page.

    Wish me luck!

    Thanks! Website is .com, I was a bit surprised it was available, so I checked if it was banned by google before registering it. All good.

    Thanks! It's a guide to install wp and a few helpful plugins in under 10 minutes. If you search hekke, I think you can find a link to his blog in his signature, that's where I found it.

    A few more things I did today:
    - I tried to get the site indexed in google, because I read earlier about a guy on the forum who had trouble getting it indexed for 1 month. So I added a long list of ping links in wp dashboard, then I did a small content update to trigger the pings.
    - I also added the site to webmaster tools, but to my surprise, after the validation, I see a message "your website contains malware". I thought it was impossible cause it's a fresh install of the latest wp version with a few plugins with latest updates and 2 articles, but no links, no ads. I asked to review my site status, cause it's clean. I'm supposed to wait 72 hours, but in the meantime one of the pages got indexed in google. And ofc, none of the 2 pages with content got indexed first, it had to be the contact page :/

    Good news! GWT reviewed my site and removed the malware flag. There is no indication of anything spammy in the past on Waybackmachine, so still don't know why they marked it in the first place.

    I checked google.com and another page got indexed, showing on page 6 if I search after the longtail I used for the article. I'm pretty happy about it.

    What I did today so far:
    - Added security plugin for wp.
    - Added another article a few moments ago.
    - Added few more images to articles and added caption/title/alt/description to each image.

    Now I'm thinking of getting a web 2.0 and create a backlink to my homepage. I don't think I can find an expired web 2.0 because the niche is too micro, so I'll create a fresh one.

    I'll keep adding 1 article per day and will interlink them. It's still very early to think about adding adsense, but I'm considering adding an optin-box or link to lander soon, to have it ready for the first visitors.

    UPDATE:
    - I created a new tumblr, added a short post and linked to my homepage.
    - Added 1 answer to question on Yahoo Answers with source to my homepage.

    - Added 1 more article earlier today. So now I have 3 blog articles + 1 homepage article.
    - Added links to interconnect the articles.

    I don't have visitors yet, but I got my first spam email through the contact form, if that counts :D

    I was very busy this week so did nothing, but tomorrow I will be able to squeeze some hours and create some more content.

    What's new:
    - Still ranking on Google page 6 for one of the longtails but it moved several positions up on the page. Expecting to reach page 5 next week.
    - No longer 0 visitors. I started to get 1 visitor per day.
