    So I built a niche site around a year ago and have hesitated to start a journey thread knowing I may not commit because of not having enough time due to work etc (not a real excuse I know), but I have decided I will go all in.

    I'm sick of making just enough to blow my money on drink and smokes, as I'm 21 still living at home, I plan on doing some more productive things I guess :).

    So what I've done so far (in spare time over the last year lol):

    Niche & Keywords:

    I found a nice low comp niche with a few main keywords between 1k-3k lms, also many 50-200ms LSI kws for specific products with high buyer intent that I already rank around 20 for plenty of.
    There are a few other niche sites on the front page for the main keywords, but they're nothing special... also I plan on targeting first the LSI keywords I'm already ranking well for (which aren't targeted so much by my competitors).

    Content:

    Home page which targets the big KWs has 1500 word article written by me, includes comparison tables, images, videos etc.
    Other than that I have 6 other "buyer" type articles I wrote for individual product reviews (these are the ones already ranking) they are all around 500 words.
    And lastly I have 8 purely informative filler articles with no aff links.

    Backlinks:

    Until now in my free time I've been building links occasionally on a variety of sites for the purpose of diversity.
    Recently been building some web 2s, and so far 1 expired web2.
    Ranks for LSI keywords have been slowly but steadily increasing since the web 2s.

    Next steps:

    -Going to use more expired web 2.0s, and then evaluate how things are doing and look at PBNs.
    First I want to rank top for the 200ish monthly search keywords to start getting some traffic in from the low hanging fruit (as there's none presently).

    -I've gathered my competitors backlinks and will be manually copying them or doing similar.

    -I'm going to create some more review articles for products related/complementary to my main product.

    End goal:

    As soon as it has decent stable sales over a few months I would like to flip it, and focus on doing it again but better :)

    ps sorry if my english is crap, it's late and I'm tired :oops:

    little update:

    since I last updated I've been basically just gradually replicating some competitors links, I've seen some very small rank increases but mostly stagnant at the moment.

    Today I'm gonna order a handful (5 or so I think) more expired web2.0s from @Nargil , and have them built with @nichexposure 's web 2.0 service (used both services once and I absolutely recommend them).

    Then I'm thinking of using this service https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/k...da-10-trust-flow-review-copies-inside.609095/ (kevins pbn) to boost the web 2.0s.

    I will drip the links to my site into the web2s over the next week or so.

    I guess I'm saving the big guns (pbns to money site) to last, but that will be my next step after this I guess.

    What do you think of my plan :)

    Since I last updated, I've been pretty busy offline and life bs. But I have more web 2.0s pointing to money site now, they actually put my site on the map for some keywords I didn't think I would touch until I used PBN.

    To do: Gonna wait for a week or so? Keywords are dancing after last web2.0s I sent, so I I will wait a little to see where they land. Then I'm gonna order some PBN from the marketplace, also in the meantime still got some expired weebly I'm gonna drip in.

    anyway tldr; site is now top 100 for some of the 1-3k kws, and dancing from teens to 20s for the smaller ones :)

    ps, sorry if english is bad, 3am here and I'm barely concious

    PBN is doing its job well :). That's the bigger keywords on that graph (x,xxx) and some have only appeared since pbns.

    Still seeing daily dancing and a general upward trend. Does anyone have advice on when/whether to wait before sending more links Should I wait for the dance to halt first?

    also added 2 more articles, 1 related product review, 1 filler type artcile.

    Your progress is extremely encouraging! Keep doing more of what you are doing :)

    Do you target your main keyword on your homepage? Did you do the keyword research yourself or use a service on here?

    Thanks for the encouragement.
    The homepage targets the main x,xxx MS keywords, and sub-pages target specific smaller keywords. I researched the keywords my self

    First ever amazon earnings:

    I'm a proper IM'r now :cool:. Kidding. But it's good to see even a tiny amount of what's to come.

    Rankings are still steadily rising, and appearing for some other kws I hadn't thought of, so I'm happy. Will be hitting with more PBN links soon hopefully
