    Earnings (1/10/2013 -- Day 13)

    So today I added 3 banners to my primary website, linking to some e-mail submit CPA offers.
    Hopefully I'll start seeing some clicks and conversions out of my 300 daily visits, since Infolinks is still generating a few cents daily.. hardly satisfying.

    I also added 3 new articles and videos. I'm not as busy anymore, so I will start consistently adding more to the site and promoting it.

    Another Note: Today my site got indexed in a 'new' way -- to be more clear, Google shows my main site and then 6 subpages/categories of my site, kinda
    like all of the major authority sites which are displayed in SERPS. I don't know if this means anything, but I just noticed it. I have 30 URLs indexed.

    CPA + Content Locking: $2.17
    Infolinks: $0.20

    Total Today: $2.37
    NET Total: $94.13

    Earnings (1/12/2013 -- Day 15)

    Added a few more articles/videos. The site is almost at 400 UVs daily, and growing :)
    I'm thinking maybe I should try out AdSense on the site - I've seen some websites lately in my niche that currently have adsense active, so I'm still debating.

    Infolinks $0.22

    Earnings (1/13/2013 -- Day 16)

    I decided I'm going to wait for my AdSense payment to go through (Jan 31st) and then add it to my site. I'm doing this just as a safety precaution, I don't really trust AdSense all that much...
    Anyways, the CPA banners I put up are getting clicks, but since the offer is US only and my traffic is only about 50% US, it isn't going too good. I have to come up with some other methods to monetize this site passively, squeeze everything out of it that I can!

    +rep added for taking action and motivating others not to give up if things gets nasty,learn from your mistakes and adopt. One thing I am really curious and maybe I got it all wrong,why do you choose different keywords niches ? Why not just take health niche and work your way up ? Build a solid followers base in one niche and collect emails,if tumbler or any other social network bans your accounts,you have a potential client base you can email once a month or so.

    What did you use to automate your tasks ?

    Thank you stevenukas.

    Well, I don't choose different niches, just different keywords within a niche. For example if my primary 'broad' niche is 'alien game', I would target the keyword 'download alien game' and then possibly 'alien game free download', etc. My website is then an authority site for the keyword 'game', and I can move on to 'cat game', and so on so forth. That was just an example. Its a way to get my content more exposed and drive more traffic to my site. It's been working for me, so I keep on doing it this way.

    So far this entire journey thread (following the Tumblr ban, I stopped with Tumblr for now) has been this one 'authority-ish' site I've been building around my broad niche and the passive income it's been bringing in from Content Locking/CPA and the pennies from Infolinks. I'm taking it slow and steady, so I'll start expanding soon :)

    Collecting emails and building a list is a great idea; I'll have to look into implementing that sometime soon. It could even potentially bring in some extra revenue from mailing about products related to my niche, etc. Great idea!

    For automating Tumblr I used a piece of software I wrote in my spare time - you can find more information as well as a screenshot I posted on the original post.

    Best Regards,
    -Metra

    Earnings (1/14/2013 -- Day 17)

    Alright I've really gotta step it up and start scaling. Gonna go for those visitors, add some more options for monetizing my site, then go at some niches I have in mind.
    Today's earnings really weren't that great, but this has been 'normal' for me on Mondays.

    I asked about Tumblr because it worked great for a link building until it got published on open forums,since then it all went to trash.

    One more thing I wanna try is to use social traffic and convert that into email list and turn that into buyers list. Just I am not good at automating things :) and manual stuff is not what I would wanna do

    Today was a better day :) Hopefully it keeps up like this; I'm still trying to decide whether or not to use AdSense.. kinda risky.
    I might be setting up another site soon. Stay tuned.

    nice job!
    could you tell how to get such more followers? I also create 10 tumblr blogs, but just get 2-10 daily.
    and thank you for your post.

    Alright my EPC has increased a bit which is good. I might be making a site for an Amazon Affiliates method I'll be testing. Will keep you posted on that.

    EPC (Earnings Per Click) is just an average of how much you're earning per click on your offer etc.

    Total Earnings / Total Clicks = EPC
