    I've dabbled in Shopify for just over two years now.
    My first store started life as a free + shipping version, which saw some success until my Facebook ad account was banned. I later rebranded it and over the course of 18 months built it up to 5000+ organic visits a month, averaging £4000+ sales and £1800-£1900 profit. At the same time I launched a second strore but didn't do a whole lot with it, that's now going to change and is the topic of this journey.

    To drive traffic to the store I'll be writing 2000+ word articles along the lines of '26 beautiful examples of x'. Half the products linked within the articles are in my store, the other half are affiliate links.

    Done:
    * Create IFTTT network for site blog and another IFTTT network for the product feed.
    * Import products with 500 - 9000 search volume related to my niche.
    * Write a 12 articles related to my products
    * Publish 3 articles
    * Pump up IFTTT network with web 2.0 and high da profiles
    * Pump up web 2.0 with url shortened GSA campaign and Sape
    * Create 10 PBN sites
    * Create small IFTTT network to each PBN
    * Power up PBN IFTTT network with web 2.0 and GSA
    * Schedule related PBN content for 1 year publishing once every 2 weeks
    * Publish PBN post linking back to money site Blog post
    * Link to PBN posts with Web 2.0s

    To Do:
    * Publish more PBN articles linking back to money site articles.
    * Import more products into money site
    * Publish more articles on money site

    Current stats:
    * Domain: 17tf 30cf
    * 45 unique visitors a month
    * 400 keywords ranking in 21 - 50 range, none in top 10

    Tonight I imported around 15 products which has completed one of my collections.
    I also had a play around with turboweb 2.0, it worked for a while bit now keeps crashing on me. Wasted a couple of hours trying to get it to work. If I can get it fixed it looks promising.

    The evening wasn't as productive as I'd hoped.

    No, the content wasn't allowed. In my naivety I changed a few keywords around in the ads which allowed them to pass the initial review, only after spending a few hundred pounds did they get banned and my account suspended.

    What types of keywords got you banned? Or what kind of content was not allowed that they banned you for?

    Some parts I made, like the product feed to Flickr, pinterest etc. The other parts like the pbn ifttt network I paid a guy on fiverr to do it.

    This past week I've completed the following:
    * Created two new collections and populated them with products
    * Published two new blog posts linking to the collections + affiliate links
    * Ordered more PBN articles

    I've also experimented with using RankerX as a PBN manager and for linking to my PBN posts. Some major headaches here, I can't get the damn thing to post content to my PBNs. More experimenting needed.
    I've seen some small rank improvements and traffic has marginally increased to around 60 visitors a month. One sale.
    This coming week I intend to ramp up the content posting efforts, I still have nearly a dozen articles waiting to be posted but I've been spending to much time on my other site.
