    First off, I'd like to introduce myself on here. This is my first thread but I've replied to some others throughout the day.

    I've lurked here for a couple of months now and finally wanted to contribute to the community. I've gained a lot of information daily on here, and it's time to give back. I will answer any questions I can from now on.

    With that said, I'm DunderMannen. A 17 year old dropout from Stockholm, Sweden. I have had various entrepreneurial journeys throughout "my days". I've been working sort of full-time online since I was 14, and have made good money since, so I feel I'm able to teach now instead of learn.

    Now to the my little project... I've decided I want to try out building a site with articles. Something I have never done before, but I have about a year of previous SEO experience to my various dropshipping sites.

    I'm going to write all the content myself as the niche is a hobby of mine, and will also be writing it in Swedish since it'll take a lot longer to rank for if I write in English.

    I think I can rank on hundreds of 2-3k searches/mo keywords with only good content and a handful of backlinks. The competition is very low in terms of content, and there is no real giant site that has high DA on the first page.

    How am I going about this?
    - Find a somewhat aged domain
    - Building a wordpress site for it
    - Writing 1 article/day for 2 weeks
    - Building a handful of powerful backlinks
    - Get the bag

    Investment?
    Since I see almost no good competition, my budget for the project is 100€. This will get me hosting, domain and some backlinks. That's about it!

    Using the money I make to rent an office space for me and my homies to hang out in. Wish me luck!

    Update:

    Found a sick domain with a DR20 from ahrefs. Snagged it for 7.88$ and hosting for 2.88$/mo.
    Now I'm all set to start building the site and optimizing the on page stuff.

    Goodluck! I'll be starting my own journey soon. seeing a good plan is always nice to see.
    Do you think it would be worthwhile to eventually have content in both Swedish and English or are you targeting a more regional KW specific to those living in Sweden?

    Actually... now that you say it... Probably both to do both English and Swedish. It's a worldwide niche, so I could basically just translate the articles I write since I'm fluent in both.
    Harder competition worldwide though, but wouldn't hurt to try there as well.

    Good luck to you too!

    Update:
    - Built the entire site, just some small SEO adjustments to be made now.
    - Finished 2 articles (875 & 1738 words)
    - Hooked up google search console & analytics
    - Added affiliate links, still some needing to be added though

    To do:
    - Fix load time of images
    - Continue writing an article / day until I have 10-20 published
    - Climb to the top of Google

    - I'm going to start updating this thread once a week instead from now on.
    - Added 2 more articles, but have yet to see traffic start rolling in
    - Made load time 1s

    I have also decided it won't be possible to make 500€/mo using this blog in Swedish, the search volume is simply too low. To get to this point I'm going to start a second one with amazon affiliate links only. Already found the niche and everything, now I just need to find an expired domain.
