    After i read many journeys i decided to post my new work here. I m creating a product review site which i will try to monetize with adsense or amazon. Or both.

    Keyword is 3 words and it have like 1000 searches only. CPC is 2$
    But i m also trying to rank for 2 other keywords that are related to main keyword. So my total search goes up to 2000 searches. Also in future if this goes will i will be ranking for big keywords, but only if whole project will be successful.

    I m looking to make some money, i m not talking about thousands of dollars per day. I look to return what i invested and make some profit.

    I will not link build. I will not do any strategic link building, my goal is to have natural link spread. This is not microniche website, but a journey to authority site. My domain is EMD. So far i have set up everything and today i released my website to search engines. I m still not crawled and no results are made for my site. I use traffic travis and TT say keyword i m fighting for is relatively easy competition.

    PLANS:
    I will reinvest all earned money, will buy new articles. If this project will not make some decent money i will put it on sale and try to sale it, just to return money and start with new project.

    So my investment:
    Bought 10 articles and paid: 60$
    Domain and hosting: 20$
    Logo: 10$
    Total: 90$
    ------------

    OK, here is my update:
    Got all articles indexed. But my rankings is zero.

    Do you think i should add more articles and how much often? There are not many things to write in this niche.

    I would have actually suggested for you to do a scheduled posting on the articles because that way it would be drip fed and you would have time to write more articles and put them in the queue while the ones scheduled are being posted out there.

    BTW:
    I m inside 100 searches but google put my contact page on 98 place. How come , naked page is place so high and my content pages not.

    Added 2 new articles and spend another 10$.
    So my investment:
    Bought 12 articles and paid: 70$
    Domain and hosting: 20$
    Logo: 10$
    Total: 100$

    My rankings are not high, so far i m at 80th place but with innerpage. my rootpage is not yet ranked high for specific words.

    EDIT:
    just did a new search and it looks like yahoo and bing put me on page 2. MY rootpage is listed on page 2.

    Sometimes when one of my sites is still young it takes awhile for the pages to get ranked (or even indexed).

    When this happens they'll start out with super far out bad rankings, then disappear for a bit, and come back stronger than ever.

    Great journey so far and I look forward to hearing more. Best of luck!
