    Hey guys. This is my first time posting my journey thread. The reason why I want to post this thread is because I want to keep myself motivated. However I won't be able to update it quite frequently due to the fact that my school break ends on this coming Monday. Sigh. Back to making school assignments, doing revision and so on and so forth. And I'm also working part time 3 times a week in order to have my own source of income and to support my "make money online journey". I'm 23 years old btw and seriously work sucks. It really does. :banghead:

    Well I have tried to create niche sites about 2 years ago but have had no success. Then after the first attempt, I stopped. Well I've made money online before (only 30 bucks:() by writing paid reviews for pay per post and that was through my personal blog where I rant about my boring life. Then I stopped because writing blog posts about my life was just as boring as it gets. Probably my life is boring haha. Fast forward to 2013 I was searching in google on how to make money online again and somehow managed to find bhw. Thank god. Was a "warrior back" then but have totally abandoned that forum. Got stuck on buying their wso's. :noidea:

    Anyway I will try my best this time round and try to focus on one method until I find success. Even if it's one sale I would be happy enough! I'm still learning though and I know there's a lot to learn. I feel motivated seeing and reading the bhw members here making money online and I would like a taste of it too. Ok enough of me ranting. Here's my plan!

    1. Market & Keyword Research
    2. Evaluate Top 10 Google Results for Competitiveness (Competition analysis for main keyword)
    3. Keyword Research for Secondary keywords
    4. Evaluate Top 10 Google Results for Competitiveness (Competition analysis for secondary keywords)
    5. Purchase Domain and hosting
    6. Setup Hosting and Install WordPress
    7. Install necessary plugins, themes, on page SEO optimization for Wordpress
    8. Create content for the main keyword and secondary keywords (Outsource)
    9. Get indexed
    10. Create backlinks, off-page SEO (Outsource)

    If you have persistence and patience you will reach your goals. Don't put money into any guides or anything until you know more. People start online expecting to make thousands right away, but that's not at all how it works, unless you get lucky. Put an hour or 2 a day into reading posts/ free guides on these forums and start testing the ones you can afford to test. Build on your results and come up with your own method. The most successful online are those who think outside the box and test things until they have their own working method.

    Message me on skype, I would be glad to help you out with getting the basics going :)

    Update 1:

    Done with the keyword research. Found a potential keyword through long tail pro platinum. Here's what I got:

    1st Keyword: best "keyword"
    Keyword competitiveness: 28 (Traffic travis - easy)
    Local search volume: 1600
    CPC: $1.68
    Advertiser competition: High
    Pages with exact match keyword: 1
    Root domains: 0
    Pages below PA 30:
    Pages below 30 juice links: 9
    Pages below 30 page links: 7
    Pages below site age of 1 year or less: 1
    Other notes: 3 niche sites ranking in the 2, 5 and 7 position and 1 Q&A site, 1 youtube video

    2nd Keyword: "keyword" reviews
    Keyword competitiveness: 30 (Traffic travis - medium difficulty)
    Local search volume: 1900
    CPC: $2.45
    Advertiser competition: High
    Pages with exact match keyword: 4
    Root domains: 3
    Pages below PA 30: 4
    Pages below 30 juice links: 9
    Pages below 30 page links: 7
    Pages below site age of 1 year or less: 1
    Other notes: 1 niche site in the 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] position, 1 youtube video, 1 review site

    So basically the "keyword" is the same. Only that one has the word "best" in it and the other has "reviews" in it. Now I'm in a dilemma on choosing the domain name based on this keyword. I wanted to choose the keyword which has "review" in it because there is this one niche site (amazon affiliate site) which is ranking on the 2nd position in the 1st google for the exact keyword "keyword reviews" with a page authority of 21, 11 page links of 0 juice page links. This site is only 7 months old. And this same site also ranks in the 5th position of the 1st page of google for the keyword "best keyword".

    So I'm in a dilemma of choosing either one of them to use for my domain name. Or can I just use them both like "bestkeywordreviews" for my domain? Thoughts and advice will be helpful. :D

    Hey thanks for the words of encouragement. Nah i'm not going to buy guides anymore. Basically i'm reading a lot of posts here in bhw and i've been following spencers from nichepursuits and have been studying his case studies for niche sites lately. So i decided to follow his methods and see how it goes. Sure thing will add you on skype buddy!

    I'm basically following the methods and guides from niche pursuits. Saw his niche site case study and decided to give it a go! Nah i won't be using any seo tools. Planning to outsource my off page to a couple of services in the bst. I'm using long tail platinum and traffic travis (free) for keyword research though. Those are the only tools I have.

    Stick with it even if you have a few sites that don't work out .. Amazon may not be the sexy program to join but it works.

    Good luck,subscribed.

    I was actually going to ask you if you were following Spencers advice after reading your plan and keyword research, then you confirmed it :)

    Update 2:

    Bought a domain and hosting. Spent literally 2 hours choosing the domain name. Finally got fed up with it and decided to go with the keyword that has the word "best" in it due to it having lesser competition. Changed the dns to the hostgator and now waiting for the 24 - 48 hours propagation to be completed.

    In the meantime i will focus on content creation for my main keyword and will search for writers here in the bst. Will also do my keyword research for my secondary articles.

    Will update you guys soon! *School starts tomorrow* :(

    Update 3:

    Just finished writing the article guidelines for my main and secondary keywords. As of now i have 5 keywords to create the articles for my site. 2 main keywords I'm targeting will be 1800 - 2000 words long and the other 3 secondary keywords will be 500 word articles. Am going to outsource the articles and setup up my Wordpress blog tomorrow.

    Any content service provider to recommend in the bst here guys?
