    ---- THREAD CLOSED 10/30/2015 ----
    Hello everyone,


    I'm Ush (F) and Team of KeywordSpot. I've been doing Content Marketing Strategist and IM for a 2 years and most of it has been pure "whitehat" + "Brand Development".

    You know guys that I'm lover of content blogging sites that hundred of content, visual strategy and I've built hundreds of commercial blogging sites for clients over the years and see some client success (They get some lead generation and branded too). So, I decided to the first time to try for "Making Money" through a niche website (From Affiliate Partners).

    I've got nothing new going on, content marketing strategy and newly added to try BassTrackerBoats SEO case study.

    My goal is to achieve some branded niche blog and make some extra dollars. Hope I'll learn something (Positive or Negative) new strategies about branding, ranking, and converting.

    I'm going to spend some time to write content myself (Daily 2-4*500 words) and spend some money from my pocket. And then, I'll share with you every day, including traffic stats and ranking and monetization stats.

    I'm lover of Instagram. So, my niche targeted to Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter audience. So, first thing is to decide very low, low and medium keywords and do something a little bit different content flow, promote.

    Okie, Aug 1st, 2015 is launch day and I'll come up with a keywords using my method of grabbing keywords, promotion ideas and tools (What I am using?)

    This is the first of a series that I will post each and every my process. I will also break down the sources so that I can keep track of how each one is doing. I'd love to respond to any questions or comments and welcome your suggestions.

    Thanks!
    Ush, CMS - KeywordSpot

    What I have done so far:

    Day 1: 8/1/2015
    Picked a Niche
    Divided it down into sub categories - News, reviews and guides etc.

    Always, I like branded new and fresh domain. That's why easily monitor backlinks and track domain metrics.
    Registered Domain & Set up wordpress with theme design.
    Optimized the wordpress installation, plugins and social media profiles (Instagram, facebook, Twitter and Tumblr).

    Day 2: 8/2/2015
    Currently low competition keyword research going. After finishing that list and share with you saved the results (Searches, Competitions) etc..

    Really... ! Without any restriction. I ll create this authority site. You must see my journey updates.


    Thanks for your wish! Really I'm happy to share with you guys. And then, Please support and encourage me.
    Actually, I bought branded domain name (.net) from Godaddy

    Day 3: 8/3/2015

    Domain Name Update:

    I chose domain already branded .com domain name. So, I decide to buy .net and easy to convert from visitors.

    Hosting Update:
    In my private server limited bandwidth only. So, I decide to buy new hosting from Bluehost (Business Pro).
    Why I buy BlueHost Business Pro?
    Actually, I think to publish more than 100 articles and also planned extra social media promotion. So, I'll get bunches of traffic. That's why I am choosing Unlimited Bandwidth with dedicated IP and SSL.

    Theme Update:
    I already bought Magazine Theme from Themeforest. So, No expenses about theme purchase.

    Keyword Update:
    For my blog site, I created 7 sub categories. Each category has 80+ keywords with low competition (20-50 ranking difficulty) and 100+ keywords with Trending keyword queries.

    Each keyword has 500 words content with more subtitles and 1-2 times only keyword stuff in content. Right now, I am completed 1 category, keyword research (More than 84+ keywords with low competition and 180+ Trending Keywords).

    Expenses:
    Hosting: $174.5

    Time Spent: 180 Mins (120 Mins Keyword Research, 60 Mins Content Writing)

    Total Expenses till date: $178.5
    Total Words Count Published: 4000 Words

    Don't forget places like Reddit & invest into a press release to announce the launch of your website once you've got a good foundation.

    Thanks for your suggestion about Reddit. I don't think about Press Release.. Maybe, I will try...!
    Actually, I was thinking to contribute High Authority Site and some guest posts to get some strong foundation.
