    I like this kind of journey because I'm on this kind of ship, too.

    What is your planning about the content (write it your own or outsourcing)?
    It'd be niche if you could list the tasks that you will outsource.

    I wish you the best of luck with your goal! SUBSCRIBE!

    P.S: I agree that Revealing the niche in the public forum like this will cause more harm and gain more competitor.

    Thanks for the good wishes Vanrithy.
    I curently do not have any plans for outsourcing as i intend to do all the writing and SEO task myself. I don't think the SEO aspect will be much of a hassle becausei will be choosing my battle wisely (thorough keyword research).
    Cheers.

    Hmm,

    Have you tried going hard with reddit? Basically all you have to do is engage the audience with the specific product your promoting, use google hangouts to browse the interest of people, bait them with a freebie that you think they'll get, and your reddit or your google hangout will just pop your site over the edge of the SERP.

    My friend did something like that, and his site went no where to position #1 because he announced a launch date and built up so much hype, google hangouts is an insane way to make your site rank well in "google".

    UPDATE: #2

    What I have accomplished

    1) Keyword Research

    I went ahead and did an intensive keyword research. This took a great deal of my time but it finally paid off as I was successful in spotting a keyword I consider not too competitive to rank for.

    Tools I used in my keyword research:
    • Google Keyword planner and
    • longtail pro

    What I look for while doing keyword research


    1. Minimum local monthly search of 1,000
    2. Longtail competitiveness below 30
    3. Low sites on top 10 spot having?

    1. A minimum of 3 sites having page Authority of 30 or below
    2. A minimum of 3 sites having page links of 50 or below
    Keyword details
    [​IMG]

    Niche: Fashion
    Search Volume Monthly: 1,900

    I am not too bothered with the search volume since I am sure I will be ranking for other related longtail keywords.

    Longtail competitiveness: 26

    Prices of items to monetize with amazon: $10 - +$10,000 (this is an important step because nobody wants to rank for a terms that has nothing worth selling or something that are not highly relatively priced highly. As a rule of thumb, I always go for keywords that have at least +$80 item on amazon to promote)

    2) Purchased a domain name


    After finding my desired keyword, I went ahead and bought a domain name for the keyword. The domain name is not an exact match. But it is related to the keyword niche.

    Progress So far

    Moving ahead:

    I am going to write contents and setup wordpress blog on the domain.

    Now, Off to my next task. Will be back with more updates.
    Don't forget to ask questions where you need further explanation.
    Cheers!

    Good luck to you!

    I saw you around in WhitePassion thread. Is this your 2nd niche site?

    If you have decent content, then this will be your major hurdle on this journey. This is not a task, and you should really lay out the details of what you are going to do. There should be planning, executing, measuring, repeat. A lot of people will drop a few backlinks, wait a week see no results and wonder what happened. A SEO pro will continue to build high value links over time and not stop until the ranking is achieved or seems to be a sunk cost and not worth pursuing further.

    Good luck!

    GL with this journey, but can you elaborate these "articles" that you write?
    You basically create a landing page, write some in-depth review of some amazon product and give affiliate link to it?
    If so all you have to do is write unique reviews and get traffic to those articles?

    This is not my 2nd blog. I have built a couple of blogs but I just wanted to document my blog creating process here as a way of giving back to this great forum. I believe this journal will help newbies to fast track their learning curves to a stable income online.

    Actually this is the part i am hoping i will enjoy most in this journey. Its true that lots of people give up at this stage because it can take much longer time and money than initially expected to rank your chosen keyword(s) on top 10 spots. Watching my niche site climb up in rank gives me so much pleasure.
    Cheers!
