Hi. I registered here a few years ago when I was doing CPA, but never really used the site. Then I started lurking a little while back but my site got hit hard blacklisted by the big G for buying links from here and I had a decent amount of money saved up, so I stopped doing IM for a bit. Now I'm back and figure I'll start a journey thread. Anyway, my plan is to create a WordPress blog and monetize it with Amazon. I'm unfortunately adsense banned because of a dickhead in highschool who convinced all his friends to click on my ads, and I haven't been able to get Google to reconsider even though it's been 6 years, so I guess I won't be monetizing with that. If anyone knows how to get unbanned from adsense, let me know. I've already found a niche which I believe is currently growing and I believe will continue to grow. I grabbed an extremely SEO friendly and relevant domain name and I've found a few LTKW's with high search volume and low competition which I can easily target with my website. Some of the kw's have YouTube and Blogspot posts on the frontpage, so I'm hoping I can get on there relatively quickly. I have my blog set up with a professional theme and I've created my social media accounts and linked them to the website. I've also created a professional custom logo for the website to make sure it's somewhat unique. I'll be updating the blog a minimum of twice a week with content I've written. I'll also be creating 1 handwritten Web 2.0 backlink a day. I'll update this thread whenever something interesting happens. So basically at milestones for views, earnings, rankings, etc. Here's how I compare to the top 10 sites for my main KW according to canirank.com since people like images. Today is the first day that the site has been live. Mine is the first one. Next 2 are the top competitors which I input manually. The rest are the top results on google. Looking forward to seeing how this goes. Cheers.
