    Hi All



    Part 1 - Autoblogs
    I started reading about IM last year in november i think. Back then i had many ideas, and i fell into the Autoblog hole, i made many websites and started spamming them with scrapebox, they did move up in serps and some gained a little traffic, but it was painfully slow and boring. I let them run still to this day and i must admit some have made 1-2$ here and there, but that simply didnt do.

    Part 2 - 100% Unique Content Site
    So in December i had this idea to make a Movie Review site with 100% unique articles i had written by a team. I quickly noticed a big difference in SERPS and how much easier they were to rank with, but due to the niche of it, and my monetizing methods, i didnt succed in making much money. Maybe 2-3$ a day if i was lucky. I got up to about ~200 Visits a day when i started to think elsewhere.

    Part 3 - Scrapebox And Fiverr
    Since i was bored of my old projects, and just had scrapebox idle, i thought why not put it to use. I signed up with Fiverr, Made 3 Gigs all giving 1000 Domain PR1+ Comments. I quickly got some orders which i finished ASAP with good feedback, and by then the snowball started rolling. The more feedback i got the more orders came in aswell, and soon i was up to 7-8 Orders a day. I made around 600$ in that first month.
    But but... i got very bored of it, I have a RL job aswell, and comming home to spam blogs with comments just really didnt feel like my thing, and i did not see potential of big earnings unless i had 50+ Orders a day, which to be honest, is a shitload of work hehe. So, i closed all my gigs and thought in different lanes. I did earn some quick money thou to cover my Hostings and expenses for some months.



    Part 4 - The Movie Site

    Ok now it was April this year, and i was tired of all the semi-failed projects. Sure i made a few $ here and there, but it just didnt feel like my thing, and without the passion, things gets boring and work slows down.

    Thats when i read about running a movie site from KR. I think i read the 40-50 Pages of that KR sales thread before i was sold. I wrote down every single question people had who didnt make money with it. After those 30-40 Pages i quickly noticed a pattern. Which was:

    "How do i get traffic??"

    I dont know a thing about SEO, i learned a bit, but im not as experienced as most IM´ers. So i started acting.

    I ordered the site, got it set up quickly and started my Keyword research, i took some 200.000 Searches a month and some 10-20.000 Searches a month. 20 Keywords all similar in total.

    Now here´s the magic part. I went to a freelance site, found me a SEO Company and made a deal with them. They should SEO my site for these 20 Keywords. They Promised me 75% of my keywords in Top 10 of Google.com within 3 months for 450$. If they couldnt make it, they would continue for free without charge until they did. I think this was a great deal so they started their work.

    The first 2 months were slow, no traffic, no conversions and that was obviously because my keywords were in 100+ in google. Suddenly i had a big boost 1 month ago, i started getting decent traffic, several conversions and the traffic increased everyday.


    The Succes
    May have been the most exciting month for me, watching that traffic increase from 50 to 2000 Visits a day, Income going from 0$ a day to 50$ a day is just an incredible feeling. It cant be explained really. Its just awesome. Now i have the SEO Company work full time to keep increasing Serps for 150$ a Month, WHICH, i make in 3 Days :D Yum Yum


    Anyway here some Stats Screenshots:

    Traffic:

    [​IMG]


    Income Stats:

    [​IMG]





    Monetizing is done by Leadbolt Content Locker only.
    I know this income aint stable, and hopefully next month i can come back and say i made it to 100$/Day. Only Time will tell.

    Thanks to Zen, Biosclan, Leadbolt, My Seo Team for making this possible :D

    This was my little story, i hope it wasnt to bad to read, as i got a lot of motivation from others, so thought id try give some motivation aswell.

    Good Luck Everyone.

    Thanks for the story! Really liked that you shared your failures with us, as well as exactly what you did. Very motivational - congrats! :)

    Any idea what your SEO guys are doing? Is it all off site link building/article marketing? Or do they do your onsite too?

    Great story man, and thanks for sharing. Could you clarify something for you that I don't understand: was your income based on product sales or CPA income?

    Thanks for the great post. A lot of stuff here on BHW is questionable and it's difficult to find people not selling something reporting some success and then sharing it.

    Congrats on your work paying off!

    How much do you believe that your hourly salary was, when you made a gig on Fiverr? How much time did you spend to finish a gig order?

    I used Leadbolt Content Lock. It locks the website so the visitors have to fill out an offer before they can continue.

    nick5014:
    From what i can see, they do a lot of Social Bookmarking and Directory Submissions. Oh and Article submissions aswell. They have put content on my site, aswell as changing tags and footer etc. So both Onsite and Offsite

    masterhan:
    I can not tell you the specific company im using, but i found them on freelancer.com. There are many more alike, you just gotta find one you think is most capable of doing the job.

    Chrisss:
    A job took about 20 Minutes to do. So 600$ / 4$ = 150 * 20 = 3000 Minutes of work, so thats about 50 hours in a month i used to earn that amount. So the answer is 12$ an hour.

    Just dont pay outside of freelancer.com. They got a perfect working Payment system, Tell them you will only put up a Milestone, and you will release the milestone when certain goals are achieved.
