    I've been doing IM for the past 2 years, most of the time just learning, testing and failing. But finally I've gotten to the point where I have things much clearer, A LOT CLEARER.

    I think I've started 2 journeys here but didn't have much success because I didn't have the funds to supply SEO (as they were mostly focused on traffic from SERPS). But now I'm getting a decent income per month by writing Spanish content,something around $350/month which is pretty enough for my investments. That's the factor that's making a difference between this and my other past journeys, because now I got the funds to supply my needs.

    So the plan is this:

    So far now...

    I bought an aged domain from SeoLover, pretty nice domain with clean and powerful backlinks profile.

    I got my first set of keywords (7). And I'm writing the content for my website based on those keywords. They are pretty easy to rank I think, I got them from a service here in BHW (Elite Keywords).

    I have already three posts published on my website, being the first 1000 words, the second 1500 words and the third 2000 words. I've worked pretty well at the On-Page SEO by adding LSI, videos, images and all the things advised on how to do a proper On-Page optimization.

    I bought a 50 links pack from Xtraduty Network for the first post along with some other services used for diluting anchor text and diversifying backlink profile.

    For the second post I bought a pro-package from SeoPez and nothing more, let's see how it goes ;)

    And I've not bought anything for the third post yet.

    My site has a good seo-friendly structure (Wordpress).

    And that's all I've done so far now.

    What I wanna achieve is...

    My keywords have a decent $2+ CPC along with a good amount of local searches (2000-5000+). I really want to earn at least $500/month from this site and reinvest all the revenue to generate more profit on the long run.

    That's basically what I wanna achieve with this project.

    Note: I've not put any adsense ads yet, first I wanna get it somehow on a decent position in SERPS for my desired keywords.

    By the moment my posts are doing the Google dance, the second post for example without any backlink was at a position near to 100 and suddenly it went nowhere. But I really trust this website will be a real success!

    Just wish me luck and support me guys/gals! ;)

    I promise to update this thread whenever something important happens. I'm waking up everyday at 5:00 am, to study, check my website, do some work out and mostly for finishing the orders from my clients from my Spanish writing service.

    That's all I have to say now! Thanks for taking the time to read my thread!

    Think logically as well as strategically. Your niche keyword (main or mains) has to belong to a evergreen niche. Your keywords have 2k-5k monthly searches, assuming that you get 1 position on Google you can expect to receive roughly 38% of all organic landing clicks solely on your top link. That is a general ballpark number, some of my favorite sites report more than 38% (but they include heavy branding campaigns) while others report a little less (28% was the lowest organic search CTR).

    3,500x0.38 (2,000+5,000/2 x 0.38) 1,330 visitors to your website monthly per keyword is what you can expect without any heavy branding or big brands like Amazon or WebMD coming in and steam rolling you over. Not all these visitors click your ads, roughly the average is around 2% for a user focused site. 1,330 will give you roughly 27 clicks on your ads, give or take 3 clicks. 27x$2=$54, $54-$17.28=$36.72 so that's a estimate of about average monthly income per keyword under PRISTINE clicking chances. You don't want all your traffic to click your ads, you want repeat visitors to your blogs. These repeat visitors will do word of mouth (free social advertising) for you if your content is made for their pleasure of reading it.

    Now to get into this further you can increase or decrease your cpc by targeting higher or lower paid keywords based on volume and payout in your niche. Plase keep in mind Google tracks your visitors via a cookie that will monitor their behavior patterns. This in return will show them a ad related to their search behavior interests. I have this happen quite often with people being disillusioned by Adsense Gold only to find out in reality it sucks compared to their dreams. So they turn to pumpig traffic from social media. There is nothing wrong with this method, but 99.99% of the problem is that they don't have content people would naturally like and share (or hate and share anyway).

    I know you invested money on seo, but you need to do it wisely and consistently. That doesn't mean buy services and have them spam your site into a sandbox of doom, that means you need to be smart and know when to SEO or post for traffic. The final part would be branding your site with a advertising campaign, but we won't get into that.

    Kep at it and good luck with your journey as Adsense can be a pain.

    Hi, thanks for your post. My content is very well written not just for the purpose of ranking; I've thought about that. I'm targeting long tail keywords as well within my post with 800-1000 searches a month and a decent CPC ($1-6). I'm targeting an evergreen niche where people are ready to buy, these are keywords with commercial intention.

    I'm moving my pieces with SEO carefully and wisely. Not spam, just a good strategy. Thanks for your wishes!

    I have a fully approved account. The unique thing you must do is to have a website with some decent content and your legal pages on it. I did that and I got approved.

    Update: I received my report from my 50 PBN links. All looks good so far now but it's way too early for a SERP improvement. I'll look closely to that, also I'm building more backlinks on this same post for diversifying anchor text and backlink profile.

    Tomorrow I'm gonna publish another article of 1000+ words, I'm updating my blog every 4-5 days.

    Update: I've promised myself to do the following thing at least 5 times a week (more on that in a moment). I've collected a nice bunch of long tail keywords with very low searches (10-30/month) but with also no competition, so they are easy to rank with on-page optimization. I'm gonna use those keywords to build content for my site daily or at least 5 times a week, they are easy to rank and by themselves they don't deliver a lot of traffic but in a big bunch they can deliver some serious traffic, just do the math.

    This is also a good way to don't make of me a lazy person, so that I have something to do everyday for my site for obligation. It also benefits me because I'll have a constant flow of content and on Google's eyes it's a good thing I guess. Another benefit is that I have more points from where I can administer my interlinking structure.

    Thank you all again for your good wishes!

    Update: After my previous update, I published a new article on my blog using one of those long tail keywords I mentioned. And today I did the same but with a broader keyword with a lot more searches (one of my main keywords). I hope to publish another post tonight.
