    Hey guys.​

    Almost a year ago, I started my first journey thread to $750 a day (http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/cb-seo-journey-to-750-a-day.796873/). I started peaking around $300-400 a day around Christmas season (http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/cb-seo-journey-to-750-a-day.796873/page-11#post-8544439), but it seems this boost was due to the season. I dropped to around $200 a day and had to take a LOT of time off SEO to focus on IRL stuff (I'm in school) and spent this entire summer doing an internship for my future career.

    But I'm back.

    Looking back on it, $750/a day was entirely too much to set my sites on off the bat (I was moving towards it, but I wasn't really hitting milestones). So now I'm going to do the reverse. I'm going to start off with a reachable milestone of $300 and increase as I meet my goals.

    My earning methods are Clickbank and Amazon. I am also dabbling around with OgAds and Instagram, but have nothing really concrete in this medium yet. It is not, in any way, my focus.

    The Mentality
    I like being busy and having a lot of responsibility. It sharpens my focus and keeps me going. I noticed that when I start making money, I slowly drop off as I get more complacent and the need for money declines. The only way for me to fix this is to materialize the passion out of thin air...so that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to keep expanding my sites for no other reason than, why not?

    This journey thread is part of that. It's another responsibility, one that takes up a decent chunk of time, that I have to maintain and keep up with. Bring it on.


    The Method
    I have a couple of products that make me decent money from Clickbank using Meathead's method plus clever SEO (I don't target the typical product + review) so I'm going to expand my existing sites in this way. I'm all over page 1 on many of them, but not always in spot #1. So the first goal is getting spot #1 wherever/however I can. Second goal is a steady expansion of my sites, which I'm working on thanks to having hired some writers off freelancer. I'll be spending my money there rather than buying services.

    Also, I have a small PBN (30 sites) I've built over the past month or two that is only just now beginning to link to my pages. I'll be using Web 2.0s and then money-site designed PBNs as my tier 1s. My PBN is really in the back of my mind - I pick up like 2-3 domains weekly and then put them on hosting whenever I get to it. I have a few I've registered for 2 months that I haven't even linked out yet. I think this method has been good for building up slowly, but it's time to get going.

    Sites

    CB
    Site #1 - Main CB Products on this site, rank for helpful longtails.
    Site #2 - Passion Project from last year. 1k Daily visitors, gets sales once a week or every two weeks.

    Amazon
    Site #1 - Made using Meathead's Amazon Method, but NOT advertised through it. Ranking decently well - it was an expired domain in the same niche.
    Site #2 - Site from last year that I never SEO'd. Got me 2 sales the other day so I immediately made web 2.0s for it and now need to work on it.
    Site #3 - 10 Articles added for a new niche on Sunday, not ranking at all yet. Very little competition, could be big when I get ranking for it. Working on web 2.0s for it.
    Site #4 - Random Idea I had. Could get big...maybe. Work on it here and there, there's 0 competition.

    Current Weekly Earnings 9/13/16

    Things done in the past 24 hours:

    4 New Articles on CB Site #1.
    Web 2.0s made for Amazon Site #2.

    What I'm doing Today:
    -Optimizing Site #2 since it made me some sales and earned my attention again.
    -Working on Site #4 and Site #1 - house keeping etc.

    Hey you are back! Your last journey was very inspirational to me. Just wanted to let you know that you inspired me to start with clickbank and I am now earning around 100 a day with clickbank. So thank you very much OP. Also I am excited to see you reach your goal. Will be checking in every once in a while to see how you are doing. Good luck!

    Hello OP, could you explain what web 2.0s is? I mean I know web 2.0 sites, so when you said you working web 2.0 on your site do you mean submit your site to other web 2.0 sites?

    OP, congrats on all the success. I followed your journey a year ago and I'll follow your journey now. Hope it goes well and you pass $750 a day.

    I've got a few questions:
    1. How do you select a niche? What makes it worth it and how do you know something is profitable?

    2. What are your monthly expenses like?

    3. Where do you get content?

    4. How much informational content vs money content do you have per money site? The CB site for example.

    Thanks a lot.

    Thanks for the support everyone!

    Glad to have made an impact, I remember your avatar. Are you a SEO guy or a direct traffic guy?


    Things like blogspot.com, wordpress.com, etc.



    1. Now I'm less picky. If it's getting searches (and has reasonable competition), I'm going after it. I have the means now.

    2. No idea, don't really track it. I'm only spending money on writers (and now someone to help me make the web 2.0s).

    3. Writers - freelancer etc.

    4. A healthy mix of both. Probably way more money content than informational.

    Earnings: $112 - $108 CB, $4 Amazon (In class so no screenshot)​

    My earnings have been bouncing between OK and low. I may get a sale or two a few hours later (people are at work, it's the middle of September) but I'm not too worried about it.

    So far today, I've added/scheduled 8 more articles to CB website #1 and started tracking keywords. I'm currently in the process of hiring a VA to take over managing web 2.0s for me, which will be a big help (and a time saver!)

    I have a late class today, so I may not get time to really mess around with sites. If I do, I'll continue shopkeeping on the Amazon sites. Also, I've started looking at my competitors backlinks and stealing what I can. So if I get the time and get the sites set, I'll go do that.

    Subscribed! I'm particularly interested in this one as I got a couple of websites that would benefit from the methods used in your journey :).
    Good luck for your milestones.
