    Disclamer: I am not selling anything so dont ask. The bots and customizations I make, I can tell you the general Idea of everything but not divulge my exact stuff as I dont wanna dox myself or give out years worth of hard work. I will however TEACH you how i did it, but not WHAT i did. I am also listing a lot of products here none of which i am affiliated with and most of which i am moderately proficient in.
    To The Mods - I see like 1/3rd of all people on the forum are banned. Please do INFORM me if i am making a mistake writing anything here. If so i will gladly delete it..please do not ban me as i have no intention of breaking your rules and anything like that, that may happen would likely be by mistake and not intentional. I wanna use this thread to chronicle my journey and get inspiration form people and perhaps inspire other too.

    Introduction:
    I have been an overachiever in academics and an underachiever in real life. But that's about to change with this 150 day challenge starting today and ending on 23rd Sept just 3 weeks shy of Dowali which is around mid Oct '17. I welcome y'all to follow along. I will post here each and every day even if i am not able to meet my goals for that day. This will keep me paced. I have been very creative overall in life but it has been very hard for me to be consistent.

    Alright, so i have made the following few abandoned journey's in the past:
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/rock_shocks-journey-to-1000-per-day-youtube-adsense.890373/
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/r...-instant-articles-audience-network-yt.894921/
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/z...netization-fb-instant-articles-amazon.881580/

    And have not followed up all of them. I made a few 100 bucks here and there but nothing big. So this in thread I am gonna be trying my best to learn from experts here.. give inputs to those who are new and over all let's try to be sick c*nts and not sad c*nts or hard cu*ts as Zyzz would say.. We are all gonna make it. I am sure that if I stick to my plan and work my ass off and manage my time well and consistent I already have the traffic, the skills and everything needed to make it.. All i need to do now is EXECUTE my plans..
    [​IMG]


    My plan is to get these 5 goals accomplished in 150 days:
    1. Start 4 Money making Projects partly in parallel & partly one after the other.
    2. Learn to Code (I already know beginner level).
    3. Go back to Gym and start lifting again. I used to be a shredded sick c*nt before i turned into a hard cunt (zyzz speak) and started to take life too seriously. I have changed back now.. started to live healthy and i wanna be shredded as faakkk again.. lol :D
    4. Earn enough to buy a 1 Cr + (150K USD) convertible and buy nicer clothes and get a makeover. I look like a muscular caveman today..lolz.. But this can happen only after this project is successful as I am broke right now. :p
    5. Save up enough to go on a good vacation in Diwali (It's an Indian festival). I haven't taken one for 5 years as i have been too busy in Uni and am broke af.

    GOAL - 1: MONEY MAKING PROJECTS:

    PROJECT - 1 -
    Authority site(s) :

    There is this micro niche I am good at with 200K or so people worldwide who are interested in this and there is no significant competition in it. I plan on making one authority site and then branching out and making multiple. Why get the top spot and just 18% clicks (according to google #1 in serps gets that much) when i can get it all by totally dominating SERPs by making 10 sites.

    Content:

    - Indepth Articles
    - How to Guides
    - Top 5/10 Reviews on resources
    - Indepth reviews on individual products

    Monetization:
    - Amazon from all 11 associates countries via EasyAzon plugin (dont lose sales get them all)
    - App download affiliates (there are 2 in my niche that give like $0.25-$1 per paid/free download..ironically free one gives me more than paid one..though they are different kinda apps which dont compete so i will market both)
    - Travel/Hotel affiliates (multiple)
    - Instant articles for FB mobile
    - Ezoic/Adsense maybe used if i dont reach a decent amount with the rest of the monetization.. That will be active only on posts/pages which are purely informational (though I may eventually decide never to do Ezoic/Adsense as affiliate commissions probably pay much more than ads ever can or will..)

    Traffic:
    - Initially: FB Pages, FB Groups, OneSignal free notifications (fuck Pushcrew)
    - In a while: When the site is out of the sandbox we will make money via search too. Also, once i have enough money I will start email marketing. I am gonna set up email marketing free accounts on multiple platforms like MailChimp etc free tier just to collect leads for now. Once I have enough money I will get Amazon SES + sendy.co and send mails every week
    - Eventually: YT channel, Pintrest, IG, FB profiles etc when I have enough money for MP and FL
    - Maybe include reddit & quora in the gameplan

    EVENTUAL GOAL: Once the money starts rolling I want to go up to 10 - 50 sites in the niche with content & videos outsourced to achieve complete domination of the field.

    PROJECT - 2 - Multiple Review site(s) :

    - This is in a totally different kinda site.. multi-niche site in a sector which is under-exploited and under-saturated because of bureaucratic issues wherein vast majority of the world cannot participate in certain niches because of legal norms governing inclusion.. thats all i can say as of now.. cant divulge niche/sector in particular. But will divulge overall strategy.

    Content:
    - Top 10/5
    - Reviews of individual products
    - How to guides with affiliate links too

    Monetization:
    - Multiple affiliates including, but not limited to, Amazon
    - No ads.. purely affiliate

    Traffic:
    === Have no ready made traffic for this one.. But this will be the highest yield, so i will have a good amount of traffic coming from this over a longer horizon.. Its a get rich slow scheme ===
    - Initially Google search
    - Eventually YT videos, FB (& perhaps pintrest) via Massplanner, IG via followliker/MP, Twitter via MP
    - Maybe include reddit & quora

    EVENTUAL GOAL:
    Create 50 - 200 sites with much of the work outsourced

    PROJECT - 3 - WAREZ Site(s):

    This is a niche warez site with content being catered to a specific audience. I have the audience I just have to give them the content and figure out the streaming site and warez download hosts and figure out the coding stuff and learn some stuff before i can launch this. This will be the largest profit source, albeit a pure dark black hat one.

    Content:
    - Obviously not mine.. its all kinda stuff...ebooks...jpgs..pdfs... mp4s: Already have it all

    Monetization:
    - Openload
    - Popads, Popcash, Propeller popups (though propeller gives a virus warning so not sure of that shit.. gotta figure it out)
    - Ad-Center

    Traffic:
    Niche specific forums and blogs

    EVENTUAL GOAL:
    Learn the ins and outs of coding and make a bulletproof website with DDOS, hacking protection and all self hosted videos and payment & payout should be via Bitcoin.. once i have learnt everything a to z and know how to hide my tracks i will work on this project. It will start after a while..but when it starts it will give a lot of money for a long long period of time.. I will make 50 or so such websites once i have the initial script for the one site working seemlessly..

    PROJECT - 4 - JOURNEYS:

    Overall, I am gonna be learning a lot of new things here and those things that i do know I am refining them so I am gonna be starting 100% free no money needed authority sites & YT channels for IM, bodybuilding, my academic niches, men's style, travelling etc.

    Basically anything and everything i do, i am gonna plan a bit in advance and turn it into an authority blog where i give out 100% free advise and make money via affiliate like whey protein Optimum Nutrition has an affiliate and so does bodybuilding.com and the other stuff of other niches.
    Since I am already working hard in the gym, I might as well make it into a business.. Like the website next to my profile. Also, this will kinda be bragging rights to have these websites.. and being famous online seems to help in getting more pus*y.. Lol :D

    Content:
    Self made and of course created using personal experiences

    Monetization:
    Affiliates of everything

    Traffic:
    Reddit, Quora, YT (I am good at YT.. botting and stuff), FB Massplanner is awesome and once you get a hang of it.. anyone can be good at FB marketing..

    EVENTUAL GOAL:
    This will likely be just 4-5 websites I make to share the stuff i like do.. i.e. IM, Working out, Travelling, Men's fashion etc.. any money made via affiliate income is just an added bonus.. Since I like to workout and travel and wear nice clothes..even if i make these sites powerful enough that they generate enough money for me to buy Armani and Gucci for everything.. and if it is able to fund my gymming and travelling expenses.. if it merely covers the expenses to do these things.. even then its good enough..
    Also, this can only be made IF i actually achieve good results both in IM (to fund all this) and in the Gym.. so i will have to work and workout my ass off..This forth one will generate the least money but will be the most fulfilling.. Hey who doesnt wanna look good, have ton of money and let everyone know about it ? This one is just gonna be 4-5 websites of bragging rights.

    Timeline and Money making potential of above:
    - I am starting out Project 1 & 2 right now and am drumming up support for project 3
    - I will be monetizing projects 1 & 2 till atleast May end during which I will need to learn to code to a respectable level and also I am broke af so need to have some cash in the bank. I will start project 3 after I have the first payout from Project 1 & 2 in the bank. I hope to atleast get some money from FB Instant articles soon.
    - Then I will start project 3 which has insane potential and will give me a ton of money which can be re-invested into the white hat projects 1 and 2. Project 3 is meant only to be used as a funding source for Project 1 and 2...also I can use the payouts to buy hotels and flight tickets and shop online.. So i am gonna be doing all of that with that money. I am not planning on making it my main business as it is too unstable a business.. warez.


    Earning potential: Site 2 > = Site 3 > Site 1 > Site 4 (as expected the bragging rights one is not really meant to generate money)

    Goal - 2: Learn to Code:

    Learn everything about:
    - HTML
    - CSS

    - JavaScript
    - PHP
    - Linux
    - Apache
    - MySQL
    - Ethical (& otherwise) hacking

    I am starting this on the 10th, because till then I am writing articles for Project 1 and Project 2

    Goal - 3: Start Working Out Again:
    This starts after my first payout from either of the sources of income listed above. I anticipate starting going to the gym May end.

    Goal - 4, Goal - 5 :
    This will ofcourse be do-able after all of this works out well. So the nicer clothes, car and vacation planning will be doable after the 150 day plan comes to fruition. I am pumped as hell and want to invite y'all to come along. I have a wealth of info, just need to execute the ideas. Everyone here please feel free to ask questions. I will answer to each and every one of you. Please pardon me if it takes me a day or so to get back to you as I will be starved for time. But i will respond for sure. Though I have a request, I know BHW can sometimes be a vapid landscape, I request you to bring positivity here.. because that's all i will give to you.. If you bring in the same.. I will be happy to share whatever i know with you.. If not..well bro.. I aint got no time fore no hater.. I am gonna click "Ignore" and ignore messages by you. Plain and simple. Life has been very very hard to me these past few years. I have lagged behind and have disappointed everyone..myself...my family.. my friends.. A lot of people have left my life..probably for good..
    But.........
    This rut in my life ends today.. Today is Day 1 and I will post Daily updates.. from now i.e. April 27 to Sept 23 which is 150 days.. each and every day... no matter what..whether i am down and didnt get shit done or i did get shit done.. I will post here.. to keep a log..
    And to whatever hardships I will face and I know I will face many.. This is gonna be my response:

    Could I ask what you do for geo redirect.. I have a large Middle Eastern and South East Asian audience and I dont wanna lose money.. I need to send them to things like lazada and souq and flipkart for local monetization in those countries..
    What do you do to geo-redirect ?

    I know that there are a lot of plugins but i just wanna make sure i dont start using something that gets me banned as thats the last of what i want..Also genius links have been working terribly recently they were redirecting to amazon using their own affiliate ID..which they call their "fall back" affiliate ID.. which is a shitty excuse for saying they skimmed your traffic. Also its a monthly payment system which i hate.

    There is a guy selling a geo-redirect plugin here on BHW but I am not sure about him or any other provider.. Would appreciate input..

    DAILY GOALS FOR THIS MONTH:
    # Project - 1:


    - Content For Project -1:
    Create 10 articles per day - minimum length per article = 1000 words
    Total articles at month end = 300

    - Traffic For Project 1:
    This already has 2 FB Pages which have a total of 24.7K likes:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    All i gotta do now is manually share these to the groups where i get the traffic from..
    My Goal for the end of the first month of my journey is to reach a total of 50K Likes.. thats like a 1000 or so likes a day off of the back of pure manual labour... I have tested the niche and the traffic is coming this strongly in the past..so i am gonna reach this target anyhow..

    Future: Once I have MassPlanner I will automate this shit and get more likes but I am broke AF and need to do it manually for now. Oh well :/

    - Monetization:
    will be via Amazon and Instant Articles for now

    So at the end I will have decent daily traffic from social sharing and hopefully fucking Google will think i am good enough to be removed from sandbox sooner.. lets see..not betting on it.. but maybe..

    #PROJECT -2

    Content:
    Write 10 articles a day, minimum content = 5K words for 2 articles & minimum = 2.5K words for the remaining 8 articles

    Traffic:
    - Unlike project -1 I dont have traffic source ready made for project 2 so I will need to go to quora and make few accounts with a bit of activity first and then ask questions and then answer and upvote. So basically QUORA SOCK PUPPETRY
    - I will have to be a bit innovative and find funny vids from YT and then upload them on FB and they gotta be niche specific and I gotta then share them out to relevant groups
    --> Note: Much more can be done to drive traffic but for now this will have to suffice as manually doing all this is a pain in the ass and I dont have money for VPS to run bots on.. as time progresses we will up the ante and use automation to get the job done faster and smoother and at ascale and most importantly it will be passive and hands free.

    Monetization:
    MANY Affiliate programs

    PROJECT - 3:
    - Keep drumming up support for the website launch via FB groups and page by giving freebies with watermark to site
    - Get the Coding bit out of the way WELL and research hiring freelancers for coding this
    - Launch of site is on Day 1 of the day I get payout so get ready for it by learning the ropes very well & making the audience ready for the big launch as this is the "Get Rich Quick" scheme unlike Project - 2 which is get rich slow

    PROJECT - 4:
    - Considering to make a weekly blogpost about my progress but that will be only after a payout as i am broke right now and cant get hosting or build an email list.

    3 - Add Project - 1 and 2 domains to cPanel & install WP and install themes and plugins and figure out all the exact backend settings and analytics
    4 - Make templates for all kinda pages I am gonna be making (I like having templates as then it's easy to edit them while writing the article as I dont have to think )

    5 - Make 20 article ideas and kwd research for Project 1 and 2 each
    6 - Start druming up support for Project 3 via FB Group and Page (Still too broke for hosting Project 3 & 4)

    7 - Become an affiliate for all the many MANY websites I need to be a part of to do this.. I would also need to know the rules of each and disclaimers etc that need to be put in place for each of them

    8 - Read a few bookmarked articles to help with the content

    9 - Write and publish 40 articles for both sites put together

    10 - Share 2-3 articles from Project - 1 in a precise targeted fashion via FB Page to groups
    11 - For Project - 2 schedule all stuff on page to be shared out with time & try to find some funny or engaging videos and post them to the group to get more likes..

    12 - Catch up on other personal goals (not related to work)

    Beautifully outlined.
    For GOAL 2 if you don't have much time you can always go for freecodecamp, it's free and open source and you will learn bootstrap as well, which in web design is kind of important. I will be closely following your journey, good luck :)
