    Hello there,

    I got a big journey thread here (Journey to have $250.000 in about 4 year). But now, i'll create a smaller journey, you guys can learn a little from.
    I'm from Denmark, and running some sites there, and got a okay amount of income from that. But i think it's time for moving to the UK, and create my first adsense site there.

    Since i'm not from the UK or another english speaking country, i can't write the content by my self. Therefore i'll outsource it to different people. I'm planning to use around $500 on the site.

    I'll start with hiring a freelancer, and let him write the articles about the important keywords. - The freelancer i found is not just, a cheap one, but a fulltime journalist, there earn a litle extra a month, by writing articles.

    For earning the money


    What is my plan for the first week?



    • [*=center]I already own the domain (Bought about 3 month ago) - I also got hosting to it, so i'll not need to buy that.
      [*=center]Setup Wordpress, with a cool theme, and the plugins of my choice.
      [*=center]Do the last keyword research, and spent the first $100 on getting the important articles written
      [*=center]Find a cheaper writer, there can write the articles about the less important keywords, for a lower price.
      [*=center]Plan week two, and just being awesome.


    This was it for now, i'll update this thread every now and then - My goal with the site is it, will be making profit.

    You method is solid. The one issue that I see, is when people buy an article other than their native tongue they can easily be fooled, into thinking it's a well written article. This would be the case for me also, if I tried to buy Spanish or Chinese articles.

    Maybe get a mentor or someone that will review the articles. Even just the first paragraph, to know if the article is well written (opposed to written well).

    Ask around, make some new friends. Network. Just a suggestion.

    May I ask if you have a money target for this journey, or just hoping for pure profit?

    I wish you the best of luck btw, i'm doing a journey very similar to yours myself :)

    I know that - But i have had English in the school since i was 8 years old, and i am 12 now - But since it's not my first languge, i'll rather have a person to write it. - I can proof read it by my self, and the writer i found is one, i've worked with before, on another project.

    Since this is my first english project, i'm just doing it for learning the english market. So my goal is just, to have a little profit - If i get it to earn maybe $50/day, then i'll just be happy, and invest the money from there, to new sites. :)

    ​UPDATE
    I found another writer, he is a friend of mine, and he is about to start a writing service, so i wanted to help him. Got the first articles from him, and the quality is amazing! (Paying him $3.25/100 words) i know, i can get it a lot cheaper, but for the articles to the primary keywords, i'll buy some quality. (Bought about 3100 words from him)

    My plan is, to hire a cheaper one, to write smaller blog posts 250-400 words, i can use to create a kind of Silo effect, and get a good internal linkbuilding.

    I've thinked about just hiring a VA, working xx amount of hours a week for me, with writing articles, backlinking, and etc.

    UPDATE - 6. Feb


    Just got all the articles from the writer, and they're a amazing! Hit me up, if you want to use him, to your project! He is taking a little bit more pr. article, but the quality is better.

    I am now adding the content to the site, and i am doing some basic onpage seo.
