    Hi Guys,

    I am starting this journey just to keep track of my work and progress.


    2 years back I was earning $700 monthly from my website and job and I didn't have any expense but that website had shut down and currently, i am working in a company as an SEO and my current salary is $300, I am into IM since 3 years. Currently living on rent so i need to pay $100 monthly for that too and with all other expenses, i am not able to save any amount from salary to invest on IM.

    Basically, i want to say is currently i don't have funds to invest in my project, therefore, i will go with the root of free SEO as of now.

    This journey is not only about the 1 website, it is not only about the website, here i will update all the ups and down of my career and what i do to improve my life.

    As you may have already understood that I am not native and my English is not good so my first step is to buy a good book (Wren and Martin, recommended by my senior) on grammar. My plan is to read 10 pages every day so within 1.5 months I will complete this book.

    As for website i already have 6 months old Amazon site which is ranking on many long tail keywords and bringing some traffic and sales, so as of now only this site will be the main focus.

    Below is the screenshot of Analytics and Amazon Current Earning.

    As you can see traffic is 60-80 every day but CTR and conversion is not that good, that may be because I don't have any table on any of my article.

    Stuff Needs to do,

    Add tables in every article.
    Publish Articles on web 2.0 and other article submission sites.
    Read 10 Pages of Wren and Martin every day.

    My Target is i want to purchase an Apartment and it will cost me $50K, Let's see when i will be able to achieve that, i know it's not easy and it will not happen overnight, but it is definitely possible.

    Note: it's a long journey and I will not update it daily or weekly, but I will update when I will have something to share with you.

    Update

    The month has ended and below is the SS of Amazon and Analytics.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This week i added Tables to all the posts and published some Web 2.0. Ordered books and they arrived just now.

    I am hoping to see some increase in CTR and sales this month because of the Tables. Although the start of May is quite good as I got 17 ordered yesterday, Someone bought 17 items with my affiliate links so the start of the month is good, let's see how it will perform in later days.

    My writer has left the work so now either i have to write myself or look for any other affordable writer which is very difficult, i am thinking to go with the first option, but its very difficult with my terrible english :( lets see how the things will go, it's time to start reading books again after nearly 12 years.

    Hi, I see that you have another thread where you target $1000/month, what happened there? Is this the same site? Don't worry about your English, it looks very good and you can write your own article to keep the costs down. It's annoying but hey it's worth it... if u dont want to invest.

    Do you live in india? Your salary is very little so hope you succeed! Will follow you man :) best wishes

    Thanks, yes i am living in India. I let that thread die because i just created that and did not focussed on but this one is completely different, here i will not only share my website stuff but also all other work i am doing to improve my current situation, so on later days i can see my progress.

    My english is weak, that is why my current focus is on improving my english.

    i know that if i cant buy expensive guest post/PBN then other thing that can help me to rank is quality and low competition keywords. Fortunately i already have some low competition keywords but purchasing a quality article can be expensive.

    I personally feel that the level of research we can do for our site to write quality article, most of the writers will not do that as they are only writing for payment and word count, whereas we will write to rank it on the first page and user experience.

    If you dont know the language then you are completely depandent on the writer even for the small paragraph change. As many time product get discontinue on Amazon and you require to replace it with other product but without knowledge of language you always need to ask writer for that, It seems pitty thing while writing/reading but in reality a small product change can take 1-5 days if you are completly dependant on writer.

    This is why i want first correct my basics and then i will focus on quality articles.

    You have decent English brother. I am also from India. Just write and re read your article 3-4 times and you will be able to remove all the grammar mistakes you would make. Also please share some seo tips as well. How you ranked your website and/ or how you are going to rank it? Following your journey.

    Quite an inaccurate tip, I must admit. If he does not know the basics of English grammar and punctuation, he can re-read his article 100 times, and the article would still suck because he does not know what is right or what is wrong.

    The best you can do is hire a native English editor that is just starting out in this business. They will probably be looking for any job to start out, and since this is editing, you will be paying a lot less money for that than for a writer who will write content from scratch.

    I used to have an editor that charged around $2 per 1000 words, and she was awesome.

    Sir thanks for your suggestion, I really appreciate it but its very difficult to find such person and once he/she will refuse to work then I will be again on the scratch to find another person. I don't want to be dependent my entire life on someone else. For example, if i am outsourcing the SEO work to someone else and i don't know anything about seo then i am completely dependent on the service provider without knowing that he is doing the right job or wrong but if i know SEO then i can analyze that this SEO provider is suitable for my business or not. Same as with the article if i know nothing about the grammar then i am completely dependent on the writer, not knowing that he is providing good quality content or not.

    IM is not my part time work and i am not doing it for 1,2 years. I will be in IM for as long as it exists, so it will be better to understand the language first at the starting and don't be dependent on other people.

    My writer left the work few days back and i am looking it as an opportunity as now i don't have any other option than studying myself. I am not in hurry to learn this language, i am ready to give as much time and investment it requires, therefore i am not doing any SEO or any other work currently and only focusing on learning the language. Although its difficult to study when you are into a full-time job and have left study years ago but i will give my 100%. let's see how the things will go in the future.

    It's getting difficult to wait so i decided to start writing my first article myself. Fortunately, i am good in keyword research and was able to rank many keywords without any backlinks earlier, today i found a keyword which appears to be low competition and the article which is ranking on the first page is just 800 words with DA:10. I will try my best to make this article as good as possible with best possible research.

    I will tell you the complete performance of this keyword too, like when i will publish this article, where it is ranking and how it is changing overtime. I am not going to build a single backlink for this article and i want to see how it will perform without any backlink.

    Published two articles yesterday but it was not written by me, I bought it from someone else.

    studying while working is very difficult and I can't concentrate. My mind keeps on thinking about the website and what I should do to improve its traffic and SEO. That is why I have decided to only focus on study and I will not do a single thing for my website now onwards.

    For beginners I recommend them to start with Freelancer. I know there are some top seo/online marketing gurus that are hiring people to get their work done. If you hired by one of these then you will learn a lot from them and save some money to invest in your future projects.

    Best of luck

    While reading vocabulary, I realize that lot of word's pronunciation is different than the spelling. for example "know" is pronounce as "no" but spelling is "know", and many other long/difficult words are like that. If I am pronouncing them correct than I am making the spelling error, and if I pronounce them wrong than I can write correctly as it will not require me to remember the spelling (for most of them).

    Doing both the stuff correctly will require remembering the spelling of each word and it will slow down the learning process. second, i will be stuck with pronunciation and spelling.

    I have decided to go with the second option, 'Pronounce wrong and write it correctly'. With this option, I won't be stuck in spelling or pronunciation. it will become easy to read, write and understand the meaning of the words.

    One more thing i realize that if you are entirely working on a single stuff then your mind is also completely focussed on that. As i have stopped working for my site and only studying, so my mind also think about the stuff related to the study, which is helping me to remember the stuff more easily. i have set a daily target, now i am clear that how many chapters I will read every day so I can clearly focus on achieving that target each day.

    If you are only reading then, your life/study becomes boring and with the time it becomes difficult to stick with your routine. To overcome to this i have decided after achieving the daily target, i will do what i actually like to do. I will read travel stories. It makes me happy to read travel story of other common people and i generally do that from a long time.

    In simple, now my daily routine is, come to the office, read chapters and complete daily target, then read travel stories for the rest of the day.

    Simple, Learning and Interesting Life :)

    Update:

    I Wrote and Published my First Article yesterday.

    I am Still learning grammar and It has improved a bit. Now I can understand words better than before. My vocabulary has also improved and I learned minimum 100 new words last month.

    Last Month was better for Earning too, I earned $60 from amazon affiliate, it is almost double than my previous month.

    Plan :

    I will try to write minimum one article every day and keep learning grammar & vocabulary.
