How it started? I was curious how hard it could be to make a website. One friend suggested me to try WordPress and told about affiliate marketing. So I slowly started to read and learn. I registered a domain in April 2015 but the website is up only since May 2016. I spent this year writing content for web page. Have to mention that I still work full time, so I work with this project only few hours a day, sometimes few hours a week. A bit about niche My web page is in narrow household appliances niche. I am using two affiliate marketing networks and promoting physical products. What have I done so far? I have a lot of comparison pages, 50+ posts in a blog, and few buying guides. I am still writing everything myself. Statistics: Earnings so far: $69.61 commissions from 2 sales. Conversion 0.26% Visitors: Google Top 100 keywords: Around 150 including 30 in top 50. No one in top 10. What I am doing now? I have zero experience with backlinks. That is what I am learning right now. I have a few but nothing much. Parallelly I continue to write new blog posts and product reviews. Goals: I want to get few keywords on the first page in google. Earn $1000 in next 6 months.
