Hey BHW this will be my first journey A little bit about me, my name is John and I am an Aussie guy who moved to Slovenia over a year ago, I married my wife and the rest is history. Basically I started 'IM' and experimenting with Wordpress and websites in general when I got to Slovenia, you could say that I was literally fresh off the boat when it came to IM, SEO, Social media, KW research and Wordpress. I started doing this because there is little to no work for an English speaker like myself, and I had some time on my hands to jump in with both feet. I learned quite a bit about wordpress over the last year, however I wasn't reading BHW methods until roughly 3 months ago, which i should of started when i started all of this, anyway better late than never. Btw kudos to all you kind people on BHW! you RULE! you have given me motivation to start this Journey. So i have a meme/funny image website I want to start driving traffic too. I am trying to accumulate a user base for users to sign up and to start using the site. The main idea behind the website is to give users the ability to create and post their own images(memes) and comment/like other user posts and follow users. I have done some research on how to get users to use my website, I have come to the final conclusion that users will probably most likely sign up if there is meme, rage comic and sign generators and etc, for users to create their own memes and comics to share with others, however no body likes an empty club when they can just go to the bar, so I will have to nag friends to try and help me out or alternatively hire people to post of my website to make it look like something is happening. I am currently out sourcing freelancers in the development of these image generators, and its taking ages! but they are looking great! God knows how long its going to take. but once they are done it should be all good to go. In the meantime I will be focusing on building up pinterest and tumblr accounts with followers, then when the image generators are completed I will start driving more traffic to my website. While I'm trying to generate traffic I am looking to earn at least $100 a day using adsense as a long term goal I will be aiming for $10 a day for the short term, and then I will try to upscale my progression. Once I have established a steady flow of traffic I am looking to monetize it further with Amazon Affiliates i.e selling meme related merch and etc. My main traffic sources are going to be from pinterest and tumblr Tools 11 private proxies Scrapebox xtumblebot (tumblr) pinblaster (pinterest) Pin Grabber (pinterest) Additional Image Scrapers My website is auto posting to pinterest, blogger, tumblr, reddit, stumble upon, twitter, facebook and etc. All posted images from Pinterest bot and tumble bot are sourced back to my url for clickthroughs to my website Tumblebot accounts: 8 I am currently following users targeting KWs (80 - 100 follows perday) I am posting images I have scraped 10 - 12 times a day, all queued. Im trying to be very careful to avoid getting my accounts banned from tumblr, If I do log into an account via my browser I clear the browser cache and use the same proxy ip as I use in xtumblebot. so far no accounts have been banned. pheww! I roughly customized each theme for each account, adding facebook like buttons for facebook pages i own, as well as adding social post sharing capabilities to each tumblr post and finally adding avatars to each account. Follower count: 2 accounts with 170 followers on each and the rest of the accounts have around 120 followers on each. I have seen some traffic, however I will report tomorrow. Pinterest accounts: 7 I started with one main account, I started it around the time i started this website (3 months ago), it has around 400 members Since using the bot i have accumilated 50 new followers and a fair bit of repins/likes The rest of the accounts have around roughly 15 followers on each, I created them yesterday. Hopefully I can report on some traffic in the next day or so. I am also using KW targeting for posting images and following users Pingrabber and pinblaster has been awesome so far, saves a shit load of time and I can leave it running all day. I am not planning on being too aggressive with these tools as they can get all your accounts banned I was a little aggressive today, I accidentally followed 500 people on each account on pinterest, Whooops!, I have since changed my config hopefully none of my accounts get banned by tomorrow. If you have any questions please message me here. if you have any suggestions or something I have missed please let me know. I am going to be busy as of the next day and a half, I am currently recording an EP for a band in the next city, I will be away from my tools, so following users might have to be stopped for that small period of time. I really should get a windows VPS but i have no money for that at the moment. I also tried remote desktop to my win7 computer however its giving my a "Lang" error, as I changed the language pack when i bought the desk top. Its all good, hopefully my aggressive following is missed by pinterest and I gain from it with in the next 2 days.
