    BACKGROUND
    I am not new to the IM world. I have been doing SEO & Web Design since the early years, and today I work full-time in a web agency located in Italy. We manage several websites, from informational websites to ecommerce stores. I am into the web marketing arena most of the time, fighting everyday with PPC advertising, ranking placements, on-page optimization, off-site campaigns, and so on. My sites are 90% in italian language.

    In my freetime I like to build websites on my own.
    I had in the past some affiliate website (selling other people's products) and I still have many of them. I am a Level 2 seller on Fiverr, selling SEO services, scrapebox and some other stuff.

    OKAY, stop with the teasing :)

    THE JOURNEY
    I recently landed to a couple of thread here on BHW, noticing that one of the most used techniques to make money today is the MNS + Adsense combination. Several seasoned webmasters are actually doing in-depth keyword research, finding "low hanging fruit": the typical keywords targeted have 1,000 (or a bit more) local searches on Google, with an EMD available to registration (Exact Match Domain), and a CPC of $1 or more, giving an eventual website with targeted-content the chance to rank in a relatively easy mood.

    After looking a bit more, I have found many other threads, with the following "common patterns" on sales pages:

    - 1000+ Exact Local Monthly Searches Keyword
    - $1+ CPC
    - Exact Match Domain available to registration (.COM .NET .ORG)
    - N x 500 SEO optimized Unique Articles (with a good % of keyword density)
    - Professional Website installation, with on-page SEO, plugins, and a High-CTR theme (wordpress is the most used platform)
    ... more or less, these are the offers.

    I decided to jump aboard on this wagon, because I had some luck in the past with EMD's & Adsense, and I still think there is a good potential there.

    My goal is to reach $1000/month of profit.
    I don't know where I will reach that... and if I will reach that :p
    I guess many websites would be necessary to reach that mark, and consequently there will be costs involded: purchasing of domains, hosting services, link building services, content creation, in addition to the initial purchase(s).

    My intent is to post EXACTLY what I am doing day after day (hey I am not promising you 1 post per day, but I will try to keep the thread updated with my progresses). I will post the thread(s) where I purchase services, and also my strategies, my changes, everything I am going to do.

    Your opinion is more than welcome, of course: comments on my strategy, ideas, tips, suggestions, good services to see, criticism, everything you feel that is useful for this journey, is strongly appreciated and very welcomed.

    Thanks for reading this thread, and thanks for following me on this endeavour.

    All the best, Nic :)

    Suscribed. It's interesting to know what kind of offpage SEO your going to do on those sites. And to know if they are going to be treated equally.

    I'll be following!

    Couple questions;

    1. If you're willing to drop all that money on two sites ($218) then why don't you mock the outcome of those sites you bought and hire a cheap VA and do it yourself and get tons of websites built for that price. Also, get a VPS and have that VA also do the SEO for you. I recommend Ultimate Demon and of course, Scrapebox.

    2. What's with the reseller hostgator accounts? Are you putting each domain on a separate host? Look into SEO hosting and allocate about 5 websites per ip address.
