    Hi All,

    So after reading allot of Journeys I think I need to start my own. Not really to teach anyone anything but to have some sort of feeling to be held accountable to actually do hard work to get to where I want to be. I am terrible with SEO and basically everything, what I do have is the drive to not give up and keep trying over and over and OVERRRR. Since 1999 when I got my first computer I have been trying to make money online, I actually never succeeded to make money through websites but I did become a graphic designer and made a good living until the market crash in 2008. I lost my job and 2 months after I crashed my motorcycle and to this day I am disabled in my right leg, can't feel it and don't have any motor function in it. After many years in February I finally managed to find a decent job with a decent monthly check but it's not enough to live comfortably and I truly love to work online and for myself rather than 7am-7pm in an office.

    So enough of that let's get to the good stuff...

    At the end of March I purchased two website...

    Website 1 - Pr1 get's close to 150K pageviews a month but the issue is that the RPM is below .50 so I barely make any money.

    Website 2 - Pr1 gets 11K a month RPM is $1-$2 which is much better than website 1.

    Website 3 - No traffic yet

    Here is my plan:

    Website 1:

    Uploaded all posts to Pinterest 1000+ pages
    Uploaded post to Thumblr 50 currently but will add the rest in the next few days.
    I try to add content weekly to this site it's basically adding new images so it's pretty easy.
    I update the facebook page with new content every few days.

    Website 2:
    Uploaded post to Thumblr 199 posts. Each time I publish a new post tumblr get's updated as well.
    Added 45+ new posts to the site
    Purchased some seo packages to get some backlinks
    Purchased articles to target more keywords to get more traffic.

    Website 3: Still no content

    Need to buy articles and target the right people
    The keywords have allot of monthly searches but no competition that I can find
    My hardest thing will be to learn to get proper articles and keywords to get it on the first page.


    I plan on creating 7 more sites to have a total of 10 sites. I am truly a noob and will have to read way more and try to implement as much as I can to get these sites to make me an extra income.

    Currently these sites make $4-$5 day on average
    April 1 - April 21 earnings : 90.61

    I hope you guys will give me your support and wish me luck to get to my goal of $300-$500 a month by this time next year.

    If you see me making mistakes and think I can do something better or just have some feedback please feel free to let me know, I appreciate any help or criticism I get. I will try and update this page as much as I can. I work 12/hr a day so some days I just won't have the energy to post an update but I will try and keep it updated as often as possible.

    You should consider building an email list and marketing some affiliate products to them. Maybe even sprinkle in some affiliate links throughout your content where relevant. It could help with increasing your earnings

    I signed up for jv but I really don't know what I am doing, I need to get permission to advertise they offers and to tell you honestly I wouldn't know where to start but I plan on researching more about it to hopefully get some profit from that as well.

    Thank you for the comment.

    I don't know your niche so and won't ask but some places to check out:

    Amazon Associates: You can recommend literally any product Amazon sells and if someone buys you get a commission

    Clickbank: They offer digital products like ebooks and you can get pretty big commissions and no need to be approved

    Commission Junction: Their offers include products from some of the biggest brands and you can earn a commission

    Offervault: They compile offers from several places. For some of them you get paid just for collecting emails or for getting someone to sign up for a free trial

    Search around for more information about these and more and you'll be sure to find a good fit for whatever your sites are about

    Don't try to do everything at once though. Get comfortable with adsense first if that's your goal

    Your plan look ok but i think you need a software to generate traffic for you.

    Well the adsense earning dropped from 5 on average to less than 1.50. I made sure all my site are mobilefriendly but this new google update must have had a impact on my sites. I uploaded a few new images to website 1 and a newly written 500 word article to website 2. I am still waiting for my articles to start website 3.

    The niche will determine the RPM. chck if you still have x amount of advertisers, and also check to see if people coming to your site are searching for low cpc keyword phrases on Google first. That will effect your cpc overall. Oter than that, keep building up your traffic and you will see results in the long run.
