    Before I get started in this journey, I just want to say that this journey isn't like all the other journeys. I am younger than most of the people here and am still receiving education in high school.

    I got interested in IM when I stumbled across this website when I was looking for a way to boost my YouTube views when I was 14 making Minecraft videos.

    I now have around 4 niche sites but am only working on one full time and also am doing porn reupload via CrakRevenue but that isn't what is going to be this journey. (Bad Grammar here)

    In this journey, I will be trying to reach $10 a day. This is my goal for now until I reach it consistently for months and get my first paycheck.

    ------------------------------------

    What kind of Niche?

    This niche is in the gaming niche but a targeted one. Around 4k views with low competition is good in my eyes and I have around 11 SEO optimized posts on it.

    Plans on Monetization?

    I am planning to use Adsense for monetization and CPA offers for premium downloads on this niche.

    Plans on Advertising?

    I have recently bought a pack of 12 $75 Adwords vouchers that I plan to use for initial targeted traffic. Please correct me if I shouldn't do this.

    ---------------------------

    Please correct me in any of these plans I have! I am only 15 and need much guidance! I have around $50 from affiliate money a few days ago so I can spend a few bucks here and there if it is really necessarily. I am planning to not use backlinks but to build up a Social Media Fan Base.

    p.s. I am planning to post 2 articles daily until I have reach 20 posts then down to 1 article daily. (Please Correct me if something is wrong!)

    I am still debating on whether to making this website a micro niche website or an authority website. I am 15 so I still have to fit in my education/homework!

    well, that is going to be hard if you dont know what are you doing
    I believe those vouchers can only be used if you spend $25 from your VCC .
    not like old days when we used to use Vouchers to activate accounts.

    P.S why not using Instagram with FL to gain targeted followers
    that i believe would convert better

    Good Lucky with your Journey.

    AdWord vouchers need a payment always. Even when they had those $100 vouchers still u had to activate the account spending $5 + a credit card.

    Try Social media traffic . :)

    First, you are in high school, you have homework. Do homework first always! Not for grades or for "learning important stuff that will help you when you're older", but to gain that sense of responsibility an older person have. The sooner you start being responsible, the better. It will overcame the other main sense humans tend to develop, procrastination. Not to mention the good grades you'll get, and the opportunities that will come in time.

    Second, you said you will write 2 articles/day until you reach 20 posts, and after that cut down to 1. Wrong. This is an early sign that you tend to relax too soon, try to eliminate this side of yours. Also, good, rich content is nothing but beneficial for your site in long term.

    Third, play an imagining game. Picture yourself in a year from now. Pretend that you are one year older, with a one year old website, imagine how far you got, just because you stayed on track and kept posting and nurturing your project. That should be a damn nice dream.

    Fourth, i wish i was your age when jumping onto this train.

    I don't see why people keep saying their age in journeys, like someone gives a shit. I'm younger than you.

    Alright! First update on this journey.
    Made a few more posts and have 18 posts on the website so far.
    Started a week ago (7 days) and I have 59 organic searches and I have no clue how but 1,200 page visits overall. Bounce rate is 0.68% according to Google Analytics.

    First of all, I want to say that I have not used any programs to index my website or submit my website to forums, crappy backlinks etc and I have done everything White Hat up till now if optimizing articles for SEO doesn't count.

    Starting to rank more on the keyword I want to rank for and have earned $2 so far from 2 ad clicks.

    I'm going to start more trickle of money in the next 2 weeks and hopefully more traffic.

    What should I do next? Writing articles is a must but should I work on tumblr or social media?

    Always it is good to work on social media where you can get more views.

    Having trouble writing articles right now... Since this is a more targeted niche, its very hard to expand and think of new articles. Any tips at this point?
