About me:
1680220925911.png
Build and manage websites in many industries, Do SEO for clients white hat. Black hat on a few of my websites but mainly white hat.
AI game is very new to me, but having some Insane ROIs, all the posts I make recover their creation cost in days.
I want to take advantage of this before the rug pull.
My big regret is not starting sooner, I think it is very possible for a skilled black hat to scale AI blogs to a whole years income
in a few months even if the website is lost they can make their money.
I do not plan to do any such insane scaling (however my current scaling will seem insane to some)
If I can make these blogs in a way that they are helpful enough to remain on the web for a long time and not just burn, then
I am happy.

I like to discuss things; please feel free to share interesting things here or with me AI or not so that I do not forget about this Thread.
I have a bad habit of making progress threads in things (not this website but in general life) and then I stop updating them regardless of
if I am still continuing it just because ive forgotten or feel no one is interested, so feel free to ask for updates if I've gone silent, so
this doesn't turn into one of those interesting threads you find but don't have actual progress posted after the first post lol.

Possible FAQ:

How?
Openai API turbo

Images in posts?
only 20%, most no

AI detectable content?
100% Ai
Early winners that are human edited are generally 0% AI
This only makes up less than 200 posts currently

How much posts?
Site 1:
1680220605342.png
Site 2:
1680220639489.png
Site 3-5:
1680220695037.png

Keyword Research?
Ahrefs, Ubersuggest + others but they are more for checking other peopled traffic cus I'm nosey

Do you cluster?
1680221056034.png

No, because I love spending money to make hundreds of duplicate content posts and I hate money.

Jokes aside, yes
I use lowfruits mainly

Are you scared of AI?
1680221238230.png


Terrified, but if you dont adapt then you get left behind. If these websites ever get close to how much my main website
makes, I dont know how to feel about that as you can trust when I say I have not read even 1% of all the articles I have
posted so far.

Why are you doing this?
1680221433490.png

I live life with a mindset that I want to make money now so I dont need to work later.
I am not about the "grind" I want to end the grind. If I see something I think is
easy enough to operate for myself I will try to make the money out of it while maintaining
my floor level morals, but obviously in business many people do things they are not proud of.
I cant see the future of these busness models but I can see what it is like now, and the same way
I think someone who started last year is 100 x better off than me is how someone starting next year
will feel looking at a post like this (assuming this model is viable for at least a year more).

It's impressive that you're able to generate so much income with just one website.
How do you decide which niches to target for your additional websites? Are you planning on sticking with low/mid/high-quality articles across all sites, or will you focus on certain types of content for each niche?
I Just Started my blogging Journey few weeks ago , I am looking for some advice and tips I'd appreciate any guidance or suggestions. Thank you !

"It's impressive that you're able to generate so much income with just one website."

I just wanna comment for anyone out there who wanted to get into this white hat, I do not think it is hard to make this much income from one site, I have made many websites and this one is actually what I consider
one of my weakest ones.
Before last month when I decided to use it as an AI case study it was just a normal white hat site with less than 200 human-written post. That being said I let the site die because I had better sites earning more, it wasn't that the site
was a failure, it was me who left it alone.
It has a lifetime earning of 1680236678308.png
from my human articles, this is with no back link building etc. If you do the math (not counting my expenses as id need to go look them up and im lazy, but no way I had spent more than 1k on this site making it)

Then I earned $112 per article I wrote just by sitting down and doing reasearch and writing good content. I hope that inspires someone to fix their life like I had to fix mine.
Sure it was spread over 3 years but you need to have an open mind to make money publishing.

I am just putting this out there because white hat sites are my bread and butter and I want anyone who read this to know they can still make money and live good
even if they are pumping the net full of AI. In my honest opinion it isnt that hard to generate a single grand a month from just ads.

For those who didnt read my old thread and want to know how much of human content is is affecting the earnings, just know this red box is the earnings of all my human articles in the last month

That means only 87% of the $942.22 is purely from AI generated content, which is still a lot but im sure some people might find it interesting to know.

1680237139207.png

Those same articles that only earned $122.88, at the hieght of the website before I stopped paying attention to it for years, earned 1680237439921.png

in a single month. That was comepletely withou AI, so you can see the huge earning potential individual articles can be, its the difference between the 150 earning 1 k in a month, vs an AI site with 16k post earning $900 in a month.

Ideally I will be able to work my skills to get the site to blast past its old all time high.

TLDR: If you are reading this and want to start a website to make money, you can do it !!!, just trust in yourself and write great content, pick the right niche etc. It is not as hard as it looks.



How do you decide which niches to target for your additional websites?


I go by what I feel like making, because if I don't feel like it then I end up abandoning the site and not working on it like what happened with site 1 years ago.

There is also other factors like I will check out the competition to make sure can actually rank, because if even the long tails are packed with giant sites then it is

useless for me if I'm not willing to build backlinks, and I only ever build backlinks for lead gen type sites, high ticket sites, or things that just in general

can earn the money back (vehicles etc).

I am not gonna go make a hiking site when every single search has some giant hiking site that has maps of every hiking trail and every mountain ranking when I

full well know I cant earn my money back easily for the amount of money id spends trying to beat them.

I like hiking but I don't like it so much that id drop thousands to try and rank mountain trail keywords (this is not to say it is impossible to rank them, it is just you need to
be honest with yourself about what you care about.

For my next 3 sites I'm gonna just go with what I feel like, and I'm feeling like going into pets next.

The advice id give others (which I don't follow myself but think it is a good rule of thumb)

Get a list of 5 niches (so you are dead set on one, as it is hard to know if it will be profitable)

Go to websites for selling sites, and look for sites in that niche

check their earnings or request their earnings and traffic

just like that you get a better idea of profitability

Are you planning on sticking with low/mid/high-quality articles across all sites, or will you focus on certain types of content for each niche?


I plan to produce as much as I can for at least mid to high-quality. The only reason I have a lot of low-quality articles is that when I started on Site 1 I didnt fully know what I was doing so many generations arent the best
as far as content, but currently, most things I generate are decent to read even though many articles might not get to the point quickly or might read like a robot wrote it a little.

Ideally, all my sites should be able to have content produced the same way as I'm not looking to go make an image-heavy site or something that an AI cant write for.


"I Just Started my blogging Journey few weeks ago , I am looking for some advice and tips I'd appreciate any guidance or suggestions. Thank you !"


My biggest advice is dont give up, google sandbox kills off many bloggers before they even get going, it will be months before you can earn from ads if you arent doing black hat a lot.

But knowing you wont earn much is what makes it easier to go past those months.


My biggest blogging failure still earned me 16 k because I never sold the website and took my time to learn SEO.


I didn't know 20% of what I know now back then and still wrote articles good enough for 16k.

I wish you luck !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Good luck on your new journey!

Would you explain how to get AdSense and Ezoic to approve the new site?

BTW, your new avatar is cool :)
 
Good luck with your projects! I am doing similiar thing with a new 2 week old site. What plug in for content are you using? Is it auto generated or copy paste?
Currently not using a public plugin, using something in-house because I can better control prompts to work with keywords (that it generates itself so I don't need to add related keywords for every single title).
It is not really something I can share but I assure you the plugins on the market can get you near similar quality. If you learn to use gpt in google sheets you can also automate some of the annoying parts.

I am not doing any generations as impressive as @Sartre

There are parts I need to copy and paste and parts that are fully auto. I still do all the keyword selection (for the main title) as I don't like spending money to generate articles that target nothing.

Ideally, you would want to be able to have LSIs in the articles but these points are where my abilities would fall off.

If you personally have a favorite plugin I'm sure people would appreciate it if you share the name.

I wish you luck on your site, if you ever make a journey on it please message me as id like to follow.
 
You are already doing nice, Good luck for your goals.
Thanks a lot, if things go my way I think I might be able to make 2k next month, many articles need time to age
Good luck on your new journey!

Thank you Thank you.

I talked about this a bit in the previous thread but the basics is:

  • Create website and all non-post pages (privacy policy, contact, about me, writers pages if any, any EEAT the niche requires)
  • Fix the website up to look presentable and legitimate as if you look spammy you are less likely to get accepted
  • Use AI to make 30 posts, and hand edit and update them to look like high-quality human-written posts.
  • Do not spam the site with AI articles until you get accepted, but you may create a backlog in drafts to be ready for after acceptance
  • Submit sitemap to GSC and make sure you are indexed


Do all these things and you can ensure acceptance like me
I have friends who post thousands and get denied because it is easy to see site looks more like spam than normal.
It takes a while but it is much better than constantly being denied.

With my AI finance site, Ezoic approves in 3 days, and AdSense approves in 2 weeks.
You can get Ezoic to approve first but they wont serve ads until Adsense approves you as well, so AdSense is the most
important since every time they deny you it is weeks of waiting.

If you get one and start posting without getting the other then you run the risk of being denied.
 
You are giving me new vigour and inspiration mate.
My new site almost looks like it was orphaned by big G (not even getting impressions on GSC even after 25+ articles).
But I'm still pushing out content daily (atleast 2-3 AI assisted heavily audited articles a day with almost perfect keyword research).
Hoping to shine sooner like you.

I am happy to make you feel that way, I wish you the best. I think it is valuable because it was the people who inspired me when I was small that got me to where I am, even if they don't know it.

I have heard many people complaining about this issue recently, I have had new sites in the past have that happen, to the point even the home page is gone. It usually resolves itself but I am not 100%
sure how it is right now since I've seen a few posts talking about it.
If your blog benefits from social media a lot, and you feel uncertain you can always work on social media as it is an asset you keep even if your blog is having issues.

Thanks a lot mate.
Yeah I too hope the issue resolves itself. Either way I will be keeping this blog as part of my portfolio even if it fails (although I'm earnestly hoping it doesn't).
 
I'm gonna follow your journey! Very interesting. I'm just starting myself with ai blogging and wanting to use affiliate and ads for income.
Maybe you did mention it but how old is your first website?
