    Hello friends,

    Its has been only a month since i joined this awesome forum. My introduction threads gave me so much critics that i thought people are very rude here in this forum. But after several days when i learned a thing or two doubts started to come in my mind (this is my worst part i always got so much doubt in everything i learn but it is what keeps me going) and i started posting threads upon threads to solve my issue and i won't believe that people give very good suggestions and opinions even there own perspective to each of my threads. I pm'ed several senior members of this forum like BTB , Tayax ,etc.. and they replied so politely and and so genuinely to each of my questions. Then i understood that no one going to spoonfeed anyone here(on a side note i don't want to be spoonfed). Thank-you BHW i started loving this forum and members here. A big thank you

    Lets begin my journey

    After going through 100+ threads in the forum looking for a method which makes $$$$ overnight . I found nothing seriously and even if this type of method exist you need some $$$$ to invest , As i have stated in my welcome thread that I dont have much money and every word was true.
    The thing which attracted me strongly was Micro Niche Sites, As these sites not require huge investment , They just need a good targeted keyword to lure visitors , I learned how to look for keywords thats matter and how to prepare a solid strategy to get a good output.. BTB thread named Rank and Bank became a good thread to learn so much thing. It was solid gold even more precious then that.
    So I had chosen to work on a single MNS site first and if it get any success like 5$ a day , I will make small investment and open 20 sites to give me 100$ a day (But 1st a PlayStation 4). May be I loose to make even a single penny but i will learn something , And learning by experience is a great tool to learn.
    In my opinion the member named John franky has a very good sales thread in the marketplace if i get any success i will buy sites from him as they are cheap and looks great than any other I have seen so far(1 month) [plz dont tell i am promoting him because i am not, just sharing my view].

    Things done so far:

    I am ready , but where to start ... Ah right Keyword research
    Choosing a niche was very difficult part for me (As i know nothing other than computers), I was having not a single idea and was not in a mood to loose on my first IM thing.
    After spending a good time in keyword research finally i got something worth a risk, I choosed health niche to make the website.
    statistics of the main keyword , let the keyword be x
    :rolleyes:
    CPC : 4.57 $
    Volume : 14,000 monthly searches
    Competition : Medium
    other than that keyword i also has few more supportive keyword
    (I want to share my website and niche but seen people not sharing it so in doubt again
    :confused: )

    Bought WordPress hosting from BlueHost and got a domain free.
    EMD domain registered.
    Installed following plugins:::
    Yoast SEO -- For on-page SEO
    Auto-post thumbnail --automatic generation of images
    Jetpack -- for analytics
    No self ping -- to stop self ping
    Push Press -- for a bit faster indexing
    Seo friendly Images -- For image level SEO
    Wp-Smush it -- Image compression
    Wp-super cache -- For fast caching

    Set up the themes , Chose the favicon from flaticon
    Prepared my homepage content of around 760+ words and ready to publish it.

    Earning:

    The earning source will be Adsense and a single clickbank product

    My Best friend Doubts ??

    So as i am on my way to journey few doubts started crawling my head:
    1) How will I increase my CTR ?
    2) Learned that Content is King. Thought of a experiment for not making any backlinks for few days and keep tracking my rank.
    3) Google started to allow adsense account after 6 months . (Can't wait that long and people selling adsense account here are on monthly basis actually they are renting)

    I will keep updated this thread on my every single move. Can't wait for a playstation 4 anymore... I just need it so badly
    And 1 more thing i need more badly is your goodluck , precious advice and suggestions

    Thank you

    Kids these days.

    OP, you don't need a PS4. That is a want. That is a luxury item that isn't going to improve your lot in life one iota. You don't need it for survival. Its sole purpose is to entertain you. That is all.

    You need to breathe. You need to eat. You need to sleep. You need clothes to wear. You don't need a gaming console. You want one.

    See the difference?

    That aside, it's good that you're starting a journey. I hope that while you're building your business, you learn that this is, in fact a business. You will need to invest and reinvest until you get to a point where you can take money for what you want and it won't interfere with what you need to keep running your business.

    Don't share your niche and where did you see that people are renting adsense account on monthly basis?

    I recommend not buying ps4 until you make like 2k a month minimum.
    Why? Because I can tell you how addicting some video games are. Seriously. It takes away a lot of time you can spend making money.
    Dont buy a ps4. Spend your time working and in the future you can buy a ferrari in real life, not in GTA 5.

    Anyways I wish you good luck and don't give up!

    TODAY I MADE 2 MORE ARTICLES OF 600+ WORDS , But didn't posted it

    GOT 2 MORE DOUBTS:
    How will i get good royalty free images , what happen if i just take the images and add in my website...Will i go behind bars ?

    Today I SAW a girl in fiver giving 44 clicks to any adsense site and written in her gig that it is Adsense Safe. Is it ok to buy it with some other paid traffic source so they doesnot look unethical.

    Back when I was first starting out, I had a goal in mind of buying my now-wife an engagement ring based just off of online income. It was wonderful to have a goal, but once the profit actually started rolling in and my ideas were coming to fruition, I realized that there was far more opportunity that what I had limited myself to initially.

    OP, what alwaysinivisible is saying is right. The finance side of me says to either reinvest your earnings back into your growing business or build up an emergency fund and savings. Then, when I saw a few posts down that you are 26 years old, you need to grow up and grow up fast. Separate your needs from wants.

    If you're struggling to earn money to buy a gaming system, you may need to reflect further on what your wants are versus your needs. If you are going to spend on electronics, spend on ones that will improve your ability to scale your ideas and concepts. A new laptop, better hosting, more domains, that kind of thing. A PS4 is only going to inhibit your earning potential.

    Ask yourself what it is you really want, and think ahead to the future.

    You can google royalty free images. A ton of places will pop up. Use those.

    Also, don't buy clicks for anything off of fiverr ever. Most of that stuff is junk traffic and bots. You can and will get banned from Adsense for doing stuff like that.

    My advice will be to create larger than 600 word articles. Try 1000-2000+ words to capture more longtail traffic. Also you need to be consistent. For royalty free images you have Google Images > Search Tools > Rights or or something, you can filter exactly what type of license they are. PS4 can't be your goal, also don't look for shady shortcuts like getting "safe" clicks.

    Do you think that if the seller of such kind of stuff would sell it for $5 from which he actually gets just $4. Wouldn't he just send "safe" clicks to his own projects? Just because someone is claiming it is "safe" it won't make them safe. Don't be naive. Buy a PS4 only when you got 10X of the money and I am sure you'll be bored soon by it.

    Google has been loving some of the 2,500-word monsters I've thrown down on a few of my sites. Vouch.

    Set much higher goals OP - looking to purchase a PS4 is only short-term.

    In the world of IM, you've got to think long-term with almost everything you're doing.

    Today after all the hard work I made my website public with 3 posts this far, Added google analytics ,
    submitted my website to google and others with entire web.
    Also submitted my website to imt submitter.
    even got some viewers but i think the stats are wrong (thats why installed google analytics) , may be they were bots of different search engines
    stats.png

    Got few more doubts , that what is the use of cannonical tag , should i use It.
    I added my link to the wikipedia page related to my website in the reference list , but now when i visited there , saw that my link was removed.
    :confused:
    Also found a person selling non-hosted adsense account for 25$. I will surely buy it after seeing some good traffic in my site
    Lets see what will happen tommorow

    Let the guy have his PS4. Everything starts with baby steps.

    I first started having 500 dollar in sales in mind. Now, that I have reached that step I want more and more.

    Maybe when the OP reaches his goal for the PS4 he may or may not buy it. But let him have it. He'll get bigger and better goals by the time he tastes success.
