So as of late I've started to step away from the normal CPA/adsense approach and started to directly work with a few companies. I've had a few failures but today I want to brag about my site that is less then 20 days old. This site just made me my first sale today, relativity speaking only required minimal effort and under $50. Mind you I have a few tools at my disposal but they are not really needed. Pictures of webstats and commission. Keywords Most of them are longtail and I got an EMD. You can see that after filtering all of the harder keywords all of the longtails really add up. SEO I ran GSA for 5 days, it has a 5 day free trial and is totally worth it. If you can't make money with something like that in 5 days you don't need to buy it. I'm getting a huge amount of type in traffic as you will see in the picture above. This was obtained by using this exact guide; http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/359445-easy-100-day-perfect-noobs.html Don't be lazy, it works. Ordered a few fiver gigs http://fiverr.com/crorkservice/add-your-site-to-700-social-bookmarks http://fiverr.com/talentshout/write-and-submit-press-release http://fiverr.com/salmanaslam/submit-your-website-to-250-seo-friendly-high-pr-web-directories And ran one small scrapebox blast that hit less then 1k sites, but they are all micro niche targeted so the ones that get approved are worth their weight in gold. Website and Ad placement My website is running Wordpress along with a nice clean theme. I have 4 pages of really good targeted writing that is helpful to the end reader, will add more over time. As for the ad placement I have one skyscraper banner on the right side and the rest are all text links. Anyways, hope this helps someone. This forum has taught me so much so it's nice to give back.
