After trying to find other ways to monetize my blog, I found that my niche isn't that profitable at all. My best bet was adsense and from reading around, CPA isn't really popular for it and the clickbank products are garbage. I decided to move to a new niche. It's a bit harder but a lot more profitable. I've also found a couple of longtail keywords that should be fairly easy to rank for. This is my plan: -I have a blog with 2 articles on it so far (I'm aiming to have around 100-150 total). -I plan to do minimal to no off-site SEO. -I'll use social media traffic to bring to the site. -My onsite SEO will be perfect just so I have a chance to rank on the SERPs if ever I plan to build backlinks in the future. -I have a YouTube account with 3 videos uploaded so far. I'll rank them on the SERPs. I'm also using U2bViews to get views. -I have GSA SER and I plan on using it to build links (social bookmark, social profile and web 2.0s) on the videos (is this a good idea?) How will I monetize? -I will use Adsense on my blog as well as a popup that captures emails. I'll be sending clickbank offers to those emails. -For YouTube, my videos are "how to's" and in the description, I have an affiliate link to a product that answers the "how to's" as well as a link to my site so I can potentially capture more emails and/or Adsense clicks. -My only worry about YouTube is that my videos are copied but spun (video blaster or whatever it's called) and it has added intros from movie maker. -I also want to do CPA but I keep getting rejected by networks. But I won't worry too much about it because I haven't really read on how to do CPA besides content locking. Here's a flow chart for you people who like picturing things: .................... Adsense ........................^ Social Media -> Blog-> email -> Clickbank .........................^ SERP -> Youtube Video -> Clickbank However, I'm not completely abandoning my old blog. I'll still put an article on it once every few weeks. I won't be doing SEO on it intensely anymore. (My rankings are going down anyways after penguin 2.0). I'll still be posting links to facebook groups and tumblr so that's where my main traffic comes from. I range around 300-600 visitors a day. The site earns me $0.00 - $2.50/day and at the end of the month, I usually get a few days with $5-$10/day. That being said, my total finalized earnings from Adsense within the 2 months (the previous months barely made anything) is $45. It's definitely not a lot and I'm still in a negative in terms of profit. BUT it's a new beginning with a fresh start and I am determined to start banking hard the coming months. My ultimate goal by the end of this year is to be making $150/day. Each update, I'll do a cumulative status of my profit: Earned so far: $~45 If you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to shoot. Also desregard all my previous journey threads since they dealt with my old niche.
