    I started a thread back in July to reach my goal of steady ?100/day and reached it after 3 months.
    Even tho I reached ?100+ on one day pretty early it was far from being steady.

    Introduction:
    I'm from a 'developed' european country (thats why I calculate in ? instead of $) but moved to the Philippines since my GF is half-filipino and I don't like the weather and Politics in Europe. I had a hard time from June to August this year because my GF was going back to Europe for that time with our Babygirl and I had to take care of our other two kids, do the complete household and try to work inbetween.
    I even hired a maid to have more time left for work - but unfortunatly she stole some stuff and money and has never been seen again.

    When my GF came back I had more time to focus on my online business and scaled everything up a little and finally I can say that I reached my previous goal. We also have a new maid since this month and are very pleased to have her.

    What I do and what I don't:
    I'm actually not using any BH-methods but I like the community and sometimes it gives ideas - thats why I'm here! If a good BH-Method pops into my mind - I will surely go for it ;) But actually I'm doing good the white/gray way...

    I was thinking about scaling it up with pinterest, tumblr and other social networks - but I was only just looking for a short time into it and dont really get it yet. So I stay with facebook right now where I have a bunch of older pages that feed my Blogs with Traffic.

    Actual Projects and Traffic Sources:
    • Funblog #1
      Strictly for a small niche of Fun only. CTR with actual design not very good so not sending visitors on this one right now (sleepmode)
    • Funblog #2
      Funpics in General CTR and CPC ok - Feeding with Traffic daily
    • Newsblog
      New Project CTR and CPC ok - Feeding with Traffic daily
    • Fanpage Projects
      Several Themed Fanpages on Facebook (from 150 - 26,000 Fans)
      Not using these as a Trafficsource yet - building up an audience first
    • Fanpages as Trafficsource
      Fanpages with ~400,000 Fans all in all as Trafficsource for my Blogs
      These are mostly old Fanpages (started 2010,2011) which have been spammed in the past. Reach on some is pretty low - but its still enough to feed my Blogs.

    Future Projects and plans

    • JrVIP
      Wanted to purchase it but I dont have a creditcard on my Paypal so I couldnt
    • Buy Traffic from Fanpages
      I'm going to get a creditcard from an old friend of mine who invests into different projects (now in mine)
      As soon as its connected to my Paypal I'm going to buy the JrVIP and start a thread in the marketplace to buy Traffic from Fanpages.
    • Facebook PVAs
      As soon as I have the JrVIP I will also open another Thread where I offer Facebook-PVAs
    • Sponsorproject
      This is the longterm plan. I hired a coder and we are working on what needs to be done actually
      May be done in 3+ months

    ===============================================

    Earnings in the past months (in Euro/only Adsense):
    Month Total Per Day
    June (18 days) 90 5
    July 860 28
    August 1540 50
    September 2100 70
    Oktober (8 days) 950 119
    Not 100% exact to not give ideas to Big G - even tho I'm doing whitehat - but you never know...

    ===============================================

    I'm not going to update this thread daily but every once in a while when I have the time or there is a major change.

    Dude! It's awesome that you reached your goal in the past. that $100 a day should give you some money left ove, after expenses have been paid, to use as seed money.

    So you're set on investments.

    And because you're making that much, means you KNOW what to do! Good luck man. You'll get it soon, i know you will!

    Is your traffic coming only from Facebook???
    If YES, you should diversify your traffic as much as possible.
    AdSense is banning most of the sites that are getting their traffic only from Facebook.
    I was one of them that was banned like this, and I was not even doing gray hat only white hat and still they banned me.
    Try to rank your websites for some keywords that will bring you some organic traffic from Google, like this you will be on the safe part.
    Congratz on achiving your goals, and good luck with your new ones.
    Cheers

    Thanks :)


    Thanks :)
    I was a big player before on different niches - IM since ~2001 but sometimes I just get the "burnout syndrome" or dont like to work on a actual project and start a new one...
    This time I have a bigger plan and need lots of different blogs for it so as soon as the profit is big enough I will start to outsource making updates and start new blogs over and over.

    Thanks :)

    Thanks :)

    I'm with adsense for a LONG time already - I hope this isnt starting to be a problem right now - I made money with adsense and FB-traffic before (2010 and 2011) and never had a problem with them...
    I never focused on getting traffic from SE but had websites that got up to 40k SE-traffic just out of nowhere...

    Maybe I will buy some service on BHW to get more incoming links in a while...

    Oh there are a few more - I think the problem is that most of these guys tend to set a goal which they wish for but are not able to reach - or it takes a LONG time to do so...
    There is nothing wrong in setting high goals as long as you know you are capable of doing this in a not too long timeframe - I prefer to go step by step because its giving you the 'boost' of reaching a goal more often :)

    Thanks :)

    UPDATE!

    To make it easier to get to the important updates, I'm going to mark them in big neon green letters now. I'm reading a lot of Journeys inbetween and its always a pain in the a$$ to scroll to all comments just to find the real updates ;)

    Projects
    I pretty much like my new newsblog.
    The Theme is nice and clean and exactly what I was looking for. The more content I add the more pageviews it generates (obviously). Actually 7-10 pageviews per unique user 7+ minutes on site and bouncerate of ~10% only.
    Still working on the requirements for my Sponsorproject

    Social Interaction
    I get more shares/likes for FB on this new blog
    Since I have some content doubled from my other blog and reposted it (less clicks and reach of course) I can tell its because of the design. I even got some (very few) Tweets which I didnt get on the other blog at all.

    Monetization
    I added only two 468x60 adsensebanners on the new blog but the income is pretty good with ~€10/1000 unique visits (remember its only untargeted worldwide FB Traffic with only few US).

    Earnings
    Average for October (1-10): €126
    Thats it for now

    Congrats on your achievement and wish you all the best for scaling up. Also, please try to diversify your income and don't depend only on Adsense (good to see your plan to start offering services).
