So, I've been on this forum for a while, just never really posting. Mainly reading, and checking out new things and what not. I stumbled upon this part of the site not too long ago. And figured I might start my own journey, after reading all of the ones already posted. I'm trying to make a living online. I honestly can't see myself having a real job. I'm focusing on clickbank right now. I made 2 sales in total, and had the account for either half a year, or more. Yeah i know that sucks. But I recently got into SEO, and figured I'd try it out. I found some good keywords, and made a nice site, with good on page SEO, and etc. Posted some articles too, with the keywords also. (The keywords all have about 20,000 - 1,500,000 monthly searches. Only one has that 1.5M search mark though. They're all low comp. too.) So I figured it wouldn't be too hard or costly to rank them. I'm only 16, turning 17. Going into my senior year in highschool. I just want some money coming in, so I can take care of things, and what not. Anyway, enough about me. On with my journey. My site right now, gets about 10 views, every other day. In between its nothing. Not a single view. Most of the views i do get are from google's image search. So yea, not much there :c Day 1 Bought some 3 gigs on fiver. 800 social bookmarks for one of my articles I'm trying to rank. And the other was "10k+ links including powerful gov and edu". That one allowed me to use 3 links, and 12 keywords for each link. So it wasn't that bad of a deal. The last gig I bought was for some articles. Nothing big. Total Invested: $15 Day 5 (In between Day 1 and 5 I just posted another article on my site, and my 800 social bookmarks were delivered) The gig for the 10k+ links was just delivered. So that means I have more backlinks, so that should push my ranking up higher after a few more days, hopefully landing me on the 1st page for the keyword im ranking for. It's still not showing up anywhere on google yet when I search my keyword, guess I just gotta keep waiting. Total Invested: $15 I don't know what else to put right now, so I'll update this as more things tend to pop up.
