    Current income is from one site. Wrote articles in December 2018, added amazon in March.

    Just one.

    A mixture, I only go for low hanging fruits that my site "should" rank for without backlinks. So it might be an easy keyword or hard but if I think my site should be able to hit page 1 then I'll go after it.

    BHW, Facebook Groups, and Authority Hackers a few years ago. I've only done about 15 blog comments when I just started the site. I haven't done any since and have only focused on easy to rank content.

    Thanks!

    Low volume - Long tails. Minimum SV of 150 per month is the sweet spot. Highest I've gone after is 3500.

    That's just a fraction of what I wanted to say to future me if he slacked off. But I hope it won't come to that.

    Thank you!

    I'll definitely give it my best. Hopefully, enough naysayers come along and force me to get my shit together.

    Thanks! It more than likely will go well, unless we have an SEO apocalypse. I've ridden out most of the recent ones with little to no impact so fingers crossed.

    I felt that way in the beginning until I figured out what worked for my site. Now I just try to replicate what works, the only thing that still catches me is stumbling on more easy keywords and losing focus on creating content for the ones I've found prior.

    HAHA keep slinging shit bro! I'll get it done.

    Exactly! And that's what I hate the most about journeys, but that mostly happens due to lack of success. The good news is I'm only scaling what works so let's hope it continues.

    Hey, thanks! Yes, I have created site number 2 with a full site content map of 75 articles. I still have the root pages ( blog design, about us, start here, categories, terms of service, etc) left to complete. I'll be trying to finish my content map for site 1 while writing and outsourcing 10 articles a month for site 2.

    Completion of the Content Map for site 1 should bring me to at least 3000/ month based on my lowest estimates. And site 2 should be better than site 1 but might require more effort to rank? We'll see.

    Thanks for the support!

    Earnings are from 1 site.

    $10000 per month with Amazon is quite a difficult target. Have you considered flipping your sites?

    Thanks for the support. Results should be good, watch on!

    It isn't difficult. Focus on high ticket products that people need, rank pages and I'll should get there fairly easy.

    I've considered flipping the site but that passive income isn't something I'd give up right now. I'm ok financially so I don't need a lump sum of cash yet. However, if I feel like I've hit the limit or that the site won't last long of course I would flip it. Dunno yet how I feel, we'll see as we go along.

    Thanks man, do stick around to blast me if I don't put in the effort.

    I've only paid for hosting, domain name and probably 5 articles? All in all about $400. Everything else from this site is profit and amazon is only one revenue source. I make a quarter of amazons earnings on commission junction per month.

    The Journey has officially started with the ending of September.

    I was worried that a few items wouldn't ship and the amazon revenue would fall short! Thankfully it didn't otherwise this thread would be a joke lol. Note that I have earnings on other sites so i'm above $1000 but i'm only focusing on ama.

    I don't know what October has in store in terms of revenue but I'll be putting in as much work as I can on a daily basis. Yesterday I completed one article of 2500 words for site number 2. I'll work on finishing the basic pages, creating socials and uploading that 1 article today. And hopefully, write 1 article for site 1 which is earning 1k at present. My overall goal is to write a minimum of 3k words a day and have that post uploaded immediately each day.

    Stats for Site 1:
