Hi BHW. Glad to be here in 2019! A little background for the sake of this journey: I joined BHW in September, 2017. Before that, I had started to look into making money online via get paid to programs (pay per click sites, survey sites, transcription sites, etc) at around the summer of 2016. I got fed up with peanuts in exchange for my precious time in this life. Having made over 100 € like that, before the summer in 2017, I figured I'd take a risk and start a porn tube site following a guide on another forum. In short, it failed... I worked on it for 5 months until I gave up on it. I had learnt enough to see that it was going nowhere. The most important thing I learned is that one CAN make money over the internet. With my personal background, I thought it was all a scam... However, with this newfound knowledge from a failed attempt, I started my first (and only) Amazon affiliate niche site in 5th of April, 2018. I had signed up for all the IM forums and watched all the gurus I could find by that time. Doug Cunnington and Income School guys along with r/juststart and BHW journey section proved most influential. However, I've been SUPER unavailable and I was able to work on the site only a little bit for this entire year that has passed now... How the affiliate site got started: Instead of a poor quality shared hosting I used for the tube site, for the affiliate site I opted for a VPS from Vultr along with FREE hosting by ServerPilot (they're not free any longer, but my free contract still stands - lucky me!). Though I made the mistake of going with Godaddy for the domain because they offered the best deal at that time... With wordpress being the core platform, I was ready to start the affilliate site. How I chose the topic/keyword: I ordered a keyword package from this forum here, from the diamond guy, I think, the cheapest package (because I didn't have all that much hope for this new journey either). The package provided me with a relatively common seasonal outdoor sports topic with keyword research I had absolutely no use for in all actuality (due to the SEO strategy I went with). What's my SEO strategy then? My SEO strategy, if one can call it that, is all about content & interlinking power. I write about everything related to the main topic I think people would need to be aware of whether they want it or not (in an on-page SEO friendly way of course). I don't care that nobody is actually searching nor caring for most of that stuff, Google does. I'm guessing it's something to do with Medic update and the whole authority thing, but that's just a piece of a crazy theory of mine. The bigger picture is quite simple tbh... And then I write about the thing people with their little attention spans do care about, AND I interlink the crap out of it on top of all things! And hows the affiliate site doing now then? Since I haven't had the chance to work much on the site, it's not doing as great as its potential (I think) is. If I had to judge how "complete" the site is, I'd say it's 8% done. How's that 8% working out for me thus far, you may be wondering... I'm satisfied, all things considered. As of April, 2019: Expenses: 1 domains: approx $32 (March, 2018 - March, 2020) VPS: $70 ($23.85 left of that $70, approx $3.60 per month) Outsourced content: $238 Total: $340 (304 €) Earnings: Amazon Affiliate program: 336.72 € This month, May, 2019, is already over 200 € and is likely going to be around 300 € due to seasonality.
