    First of all let me give you some background: I'm currently finishing up my first year on college studying computer science. I have my last exam later this week (if I don't fail any) and my classes are only restarting mid-September.

    This gives me approximately 3 months to get $50/day almost passive income.

    Why $50/day? I'm currently living with my parents and I probably won't move out until I finish college (when I'm 22). $50/day is approximately what I would be earning if I stay in Portugal after my studies are over, so if I manage to reach that goal I can pretty much be years ahead of all my college mates and still have a backup plan if IM fails.

    How am I planning to achieve this? Well, I've had a couple successful micro niches back in the day, so I plan to apply my knowledge and build 3 to 5 large websites (or authorities, if you prefer) that bring me earnings from search engine traffic.

    How will I monetize my traffic? For starters I will use Adsense. It's a set and forget monetizing way and it's pretty good if you do your keyword research Adsense oriented. Later down the road, when I'm getting sufficient traffic, I will start building my email lists and contacting big Adwords advertisers to buy ads.

    How will I rank my sites? Using BHW services only, with a couple Fiverr gigs if needed. I'm not affiliated with any services providers so you'll get to know what works for me and what doesn't. Keep in mind that I will often link to services but that's for readers convenience only. You will get 100% honest reviews and I'm not earning anything for promoting anyone.

    How often will this thread be updated? I'll try to give you guys daily updates but I'm well aware that sometimes there won't be much to report or I won't have enough time. Worst case scenario, you'll get one weekly update with the earnings and SERP changes.


    So let's get started. As of now, I have only 1 website ready (which I will refer to as Site #1). It's a website on a large finance niche that I've built myself.

    Site #1 stats:
    Currently not ranked in top 100 for any keyword (I'm tracking keywords with SERPBook just for the record).
    6 live articles (my articles are all 500+ words).
    1 article being added every other day.

    Site #1 keywords:
    Keyword #1: Easy competition - 1900 Exact Matches - Not ranked
    Keyword #2: Easy competition - 2900 Exact Matches - Not ranked
    Keyword #3: Medium competition - 1300 Exact Matches - Not ranked
    Keyword #4: Medium competition - 8100 Exact Matches - Not ranked

    Site #1 SEO:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/seo-link-building/556503-huge-serp-gains-affordable-manual-submission-quality-content-pure-white-hat-free-copy.html Grand ($27.99) ordered and delivered 2 days ago targeting Keyword #4. Still no effect whatsoever on rankings, will wait for a week or so.
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/seo-link-building/534417-aurarank-white-hat-search-engine-optimization-manual-high-google-page-ranking-niche-links-huge-link-diversity.html Light ($87.30) ordered 1 week ago, still waiting for delivery. Targeting Keyword #3.
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/seo-link-building/490916-best-link-pyramid-service-3-tiers-6-platforms-5975-unique-backlinks-only-5-a.html Basic link pyramid ($10) ordered and delivered today targeting keyword keyword #1. No effect on rankings yet, thought it's a cheap service so I'm not expecting much.

    Other Sites:
    Ordered 2 Micro packages from Napster. Still waiting on delivery.

    I think that you should just focus on one website at a time. Find the niche that most interest you and go with that one. You'd be surprised how much money you can earn from just one website, I'm still trying to create another site to surpass my main website income.

    I'm only focusing on the ordered websites once this one is earning at least $5/day, or else I'll run out of funds quickly without any ROI. In fact I was hoping that the delivered services alone were enough to at least get me ranked in the 10 first pages, but it seems like they didn't have any effect.. Or does it usually take more than a couple days to start the Google dance?

    I remember that back in the day I would get some sort of dance not more than 24h after any given service, but that may have changed. I still need to learn how to handle today's Google..

    Good luck mate, I'm in a similar situation.
    I should finish school in 2 years, studying computer science too.
    My goal is anywhere between $50 - $100 and once I make it there I keep scaling.

    Currently using working on some Amazon and Some Media.net monetized sites.

    Gonna sub to this, please keep us updated as much as possible, Cheers!

    :cheers:

    The the utmost respect, 50$ a day can be achieved without purchasing any software in 2 months. Social media is where it is at. I am not talking garbage lol/gag sites either. Keep doing your method and hope for 150$ a day. 50$ a day is a piece of piss.

    I want to set realistic goals that are easily achievable so I can maintain the productivity. As I said $50/day is what new graduates get on my country, and they're like at least 4 years older than me, so if I can get this income while still graduating then I'm more then golden :)

    However I will obviously strive for higher and greater earnings...

    Thanks mate, good luck!

    Thanks :D

    This journey is interesting to me because I've been contemplating trying my hand at Adsense lately. Will be watching your journey to learn what I can! Best of luck to you man.

    Well since this is in fact a journey I will tell you what I did to get my Adsense approved in a matter of 24h without any black hat tricks or anything..


    • First of all, Site #1 has a brandable domain, it's not an EMD.
    • It had 5x 500 words LSI extremely well written articles ordered here through BHW.
    • It had a gorgeous logo from an experienced designer (it was cheap, but it's pretty good).
    • It had a 200+ words about us page, a contact us and privacy policy page.
    • All regular WP plugins (AIO SEO, Sitemap, etc.)
    • A good theme (not that CTR shit or anything like that, just a gorgeous user optimized theme).

    This was enough to get my Adsense approved in 24h time span.

    Unfortunately the site is not ranked for anything yet which is starting to worry me a bit.. I was expecting at least to get in the top 100 with these 2 services. Lets see how it goes..

    Update

    So today I've posted a new article (total 8 articles) and scheduled a new one for tomorrow.
    As far as ranking goes everything stays the same (it's starting to bug me...).
    As for the earnings, obviously nothing (no rankings = no money).

    Let's see how this goes in the next week, I'll keep adding quality content and hoping the services take effect any time soon.

    Update

    Today I posted a new article (total 10 articles, all 500+ words).
    I've also created a Google+ Page, a Facebook Page and a Twitter Profile for the website and bought 1k fans for the Facebook page and 3k followers for the Twitter account. I've set everything with the website logo.

    I've installed a Wordpress plugin that will auto-post the articles on the Facebook Page and on the Twitter profile. Unfortunately I couldn't find any that auto-posted on Google+ so I'll do that manually for the time being.

    On the rankings part, still nothing, zero... I invested too much to be investing again if I can't see any results. AuraRank is yet to be delivered so maybe that will save my ROI, we'll see :)

    I'm buying all my domains at Name.com just because I like them, you can use Godaddy or any other company really.
