    Okay I'm new to adsense, and the whole blogging thing actually. However, I quickly learned the ropes thanks to you guys! Right now, I only have 3 articles, and no backlinks.

    $0.25 a day seems pretty good at the minute!
    However, I didn't make this thread just to brag (really, I have no bragging rights since you guys probably make 1000 as much a day as I do). I will help you guys start off too.

    Budget: $10.00

    Here's what I did:
    1. Bought a Domain name. I bought an exact match .net. I have no idea what keyword research is, but my site's actually ranking pretty well (first page).
    2. Installed wordpress on it.
    3. Done :D

    You might be wondering, "What kind of hosting provider do you use?" Well, I use a free hosting provider called 000webhost. It's free, and you get ample space. Not to mention my site still loads as quickly as any other site. So if you're tight on a budget, I'd recommend using 000webhost
    [Insert Affiliate Link here]
    lol JK. Though they do have an affiliate program ($5.00 per sign up), I genuinely just like them.

    Secondly, here's the wordpress plugins I use. Some aren't free, but I got them from blackhatworld or a simple search.
    -All in One SEO pack (On Page SEO)
    -Amazon Affiliate Link Localizer (All amazon links turn into Affiliate Links)
    -Auto SEO tags (Every time someone visits your site from a search engine, their search query will be added to your tags. HIGHLY EFFECTIVE in my opinion)
    -CBnet Ping Optimizer (Pings your posts properly. I usually get indexed fast because if this)
    -Fast Secure Contact Form (I'm too lazy to make contact forms myself, So I use this Wordpress Plugin)
    -Google Analytics (Nuff Said)
    -Google XML sitemap (So Google can crawl your site better)
    -Link Juice Keeper (all non existant pages redirect to your homepage, So no 404 errors.)
    -Secure Wordpress (Crazy Turks :p)
    -SEO Friendly Images (So the images are SEO friendly I guess? I installed it cause it sounded sweet and had SEO in it.)
    -SEOPressor (On page SEO. I recommend using Easy WP SEO instead, but I also use SEOPressor to make sure Easy WP SEO is accurate.)
    -Wordpress Backup to Dropbox (In case the Crazy Turks Attack :p)
    -WPtouch (Mobile Version of the site)
    -WPZon Builder (Amazon affiliate store. My iche has T-Shirts, so I picked this up too.)
    -Easy WP SEO (Like SEOpressor, but 10 times better. Literally.)

    ^Those are the ones I use.
    I have a few others installed, but those are just for my taste, and have nothing to do with traffic, SEO, etc.

    If you have any other questions, post below. Also, please post some plugins that you use too to help us newbies out :D

    And if the crap wording of this thread didn't get to you and the thread helped you, pleae hit "thanks" :)

    Damn this seemed like a good way to start but sadly my state isn't allowed to become in amazon affiliate cause of tax laws!

    When did you buy the domain and when you found it on page 1?
    seems you are using one of the top keywords with less comp.

    Did you miss a decimal point there? Kidding, we all have to start somewhere.

    I would advise against 000webhost. I used to host a client on there (I picked him up years ago and totally forgot he was on the free host, even though I've switched to a paid host) and when I went to visit his site the other day, it was filled with ads! I don't know why he never mentioned this to me, but I moved his site over to my paid host right away for free. They used to be ad-free, but apparently not so anymore; no one wants ads, imagine what it will do to your conversion rate if you've got big 000webhost ads AND AdSense.

    Stay away from 000webhost, sites really load very slow, and they add some scripts to track your site.

    I used to have some sites there, you know to "save "
    money, but then I runned an Adwords campaing and just was not able.

    But, well for starting I thing is ok (although I would give it not even a try), but the really work is how to make that 0.25 become 25.00 a day, that would be having 100 blogs.....

    Congrats! You're on the right track. You might want to build some links to your site to make sure that it stays on page 1. New sites get a boost in the SERPs then often drop down so build links so your success is not short lived.

    Follow the advice from other members and use a paid host for your sites. It's better in the long run.

    Also, start to scale this and build new sites but don't forget to SEO your older sites as well.

    Remember: you have to spend money to make money.

    I do the same, but try to do some backlinks and that will be much more than $0.25. Try to do some Bookmarkings or anything like that.
    Look also in the free section, here you can fnd some good programs for free that can helps you..

    Umm about backlinking... I have no clue how to do that lol
    Like do I backlink the domain (ex mydomain.com) or the article (ex mydomain.com/article/) or both?

    and any programs you can recommend under $30? cause that's my budget atm, and I'm trying to save up for scrapebox.
