    Hello everyone,

    First off, I never made a "Journey" thread before, mostly because I did not think it would help me, however after some thought, I figure I may as well make one in order for me to keep track of what I have done.

    ATM I make from $1 to $2 a day form ads on my websites, I plan to make that into $200 or more.

    What I have:
    3 domains:
    1 of them is about 2 months old, and is making 100% of the profit.
    2nd one is about 20 days old, not making anything yet, (not sure if it will)
    3rd one is 1 day old, and it is meant to be a copy of the first one. (I plan to have the second site to mirror the first one. do the same topics, so hopefully I can have 2 sites on the first page on each keyword)

    ATM my sites get a total of 400 views per day. First site has about 100 pages, second site has 8, third site has 0.

    My plan:
    1) Get the first site to about 200 pages, at the same time get the third site to the same amount of pages.
    2) Get my second site to about 20 pages, and start some SEO on it.
    (Hopefully by doing this my earnings will go up to about $5 a day)
    3) Start SEO on the first two websites, make them rank in top 3 spots on google
    (I will do one page per day using the money I get from ads, and buy fiverr gigs - only 50 or so keywords need SEO - hopefully bring up to $20 a day)
    4) Get another domain in the same niche, this time about something else
    (I figure if I focus all my efforts into the same niche, then I can link my sites together. [not create a link wheel, but link the similar ones together] I will make this one a general website about the niche and have my other 3 sites link to it)
    5) I plan on building the website and doing to a point where I can make about $100 per day.
    6) I will create another copy of the last site I made and repeat step 4 and 5.

    Hopefully, if all goes well, in two months I will be buying the new domain, and in about a year I will be making $200 a day on auto pilot.

    I will update this thread at least once a week until then.

    On my first, and 3rd site, each page is a new keyword (they are basically the same but different versions) all the keywords have 100-5000 searches a month
    On the second site they are again all different keywords but different versions of them.

    The forth site will be all very different keywords, ranging from 500-10000 searches a month.

    ATM I am only using Adsense.

    UPDATE
    Yesterday the earnings reached $1.13
    I added 3 more posts to my third site, still waiting on it to be indexed by google.
    I did a small SEO blast to a keyword on my second site to see if it will help my SERP

    UPDATE
    Last two days my earnings have been pitiful...
    I have gotten more views and clicks then ever before, but the clicks were worthless (each from 2-10c)
    I set up another site today, its a free blog platform run off wordpress where anyone can get a sub-domain. (YEEBE.COM)
    Hopefully my earnings go up a bit...

    Today I made 1.39, my CTR is 0.35% which i think is very low. Not sure how i can improve it.
    YEEBE now has 10 registered members, they are sblogs, but still 10 members.

    UPDATE
    Yesterday I made about $1.50 between two of my sites. I was hoping it would be more by now, but my CTR is really low :(

    I think I will be working more on my copy of my first site now, see if I can bring it up to the same level of traffic.

    UPDATE

    Last week or so my earnings have been relatively the same $1.50 to $2.50 a day. I have enough articles scheduled to be posted onto my site for then next two months.

    I am now trying to find a new niche to hop on.

    I have not updated in a while.

    ATM my main site is now getting about 600-1.2k visits a day, (seems to jump around a lot) but I am steadily getting from $6-$8 a day from ads. and I have gotten my CPC up from .3% to about 2-3%
    My bounce rate has gone down from 90% to about 20%.

    Total spent so far was about $300 to make the site, I have 130 posts on it, and they cover about 200 keywords.

    This week I am going to be buying another 100 articles for it, and these will make it cover another 150-200 keywords.

    (ATM I am posting one article per day, I may change this to 2 per day to help speed up growth)

    I bought 5 fiver gigs to my most popular posts, they brought me from about 4th position to 2nd or 3rd. (this did not really help my traffic much, but it did increase my page authority which is never a bad thing)

    hopefully within a month I will be making a good $20 a day off the site. Then I will just need to make 10 more sites with the same income to reach my goal :)
    $200*365 = 73k - my retirement (until the big G fucks all of us over ;) )
