    Hi all,

    Let me introduce you, I've read for about three months on this forum and decided about two months ago to start my own website. Why? Because I think you learn best by just doing it and see where it is going.
    Another great thing is I have an assignment for school so when the site is great, i get some visitors, the grade for school is even higher.

    I'm not English but from Europe, so when the grammar isn't right, please don't blame me. When you don't understand it just say it and I will try to explain it better.

    The site:
    At the moment I have a website in a broad niche where I have some interest in. The site contains 100+ articles now from 400 - 1400 words and is made with Wordpress. The articles is a mix from self written and outsourced to speed up the process somehow. The articles are all unique.

    I bought a few linkbuilding services over the time, but it didn't seem to work quite well and my rankings are not great. Have some organic visitors (3-5 a day) but need to increase that as you will understand.

    How to monetize:

    When the traffic increases the first thing is Adsense. When i get a lot more traffic (500 - 1000 visitors a day) I go for affiliate marketing, but they require such traffic stream and at the moment i'm nothing near that.

    I will update this thread when I have the time for it, it depends on school unfortunately.

    Why ?15,- a day? I know since this is my first real site that 30-40 a day or more is not possible because i make too many beginner mistakes. But when i can get a site which earns 5/10/15 euro a day, i really think it would be great besides a fulltime job.

    First thing to do:
    -Make a Facebook page and publish 3 articles a day on it.
    -Waiting how the site increases?
    -Read a lot on the forum for more information

    Site stats:
    Traffic: 3-5 organic, some direct from China and so on. (guess they don't have value)
    PA Homepage: 18
    DA: 11
    TF: 7
    CF: 26
    Ahrefs: Domain rank: 31
    Backlinks: 313
    Referring domains: 105

    Url age: 0,2 (2 months)

    Why wait apply for adsence now!
    Also open social accounts on other social platforms where you can drive traffic like twitter, pinterest, stumbleupon, etc. If you have money to buy a bot do it, otherwise it will be harder but not impossible to grow your social accounts.

    Do less reading more doing, you write so why you don't build quality web 2.0 and pay for T2 and T3.
    Good luck OP don't give up and eventually you will get there.

    Just applied to Adsense :) so that's a waiting game now.

    What's the average time before articles will rank by Google's nature?

    rank on Google depends on competition of keyword that you are targeting...

    Will be following your journey as I'm in exactly the same boat. Just getting started and while my targets for the short term are low (it's a learning process) I'm hoping to do well, just like you. Good luck to both of us!

    Hope we will both do great! Do you have a journey thread?


    Small update
    At the moment busy with social media. Maybe they bring traffic or bring some earnings. Maybe backlinks eventually?
    Do rankings have something to do with your activity on social media or not?
