Hi everyone, After some time spent there, I decided to open a journey thread for several reasons : - Sharing what I do and hope others will take action too - Discuss about methods I use and listen to every suggestions I can get - Keep motivated - Improve my english Before I start explaining what I'm actualy doing, more about me : Living in western Europe, 25 years. I quit my job 2 months ago after 2 years there. I was working on a start-up building a Cloud Software, as an business engineer, but wasn't happy with the job. During this time, and years before when I was still at school, I used to earn some ? using various methods. About my skills, I learned a lot about SEO there, but I still have A LOT to learn by taking more action. I can play with Photoshop, HTML and CSS + Wordpress. I don't know much about PHP and any other languages. After that, let's say I know a few about a lot of others things. Here are some, just in case it could help some of you : - Gold Selling : MMORPG, sold all my gold for 1000$ back then. Probably 2006. - Youtube + Adsense : Basicaly, I was uploading each week teasers of animes like Naruto and soccer goals, redirecting to 2 simple website with fake players and adsense there. I was getting something between 10?-60? some days. I stopped doing that cause at the time, it was really time consuming, and I was taking risk getting my adsense account banned. - Facebook + CPA : The most profitable methods I used, I think that was like 4 years ago with all the FBML stuff. I had some 500k+ fans on my country, and I was one of the first to use this method. I had a solid and easy 100-200?/days, with a record of 1300?/day. But I was stupid at that time and had all my pages on the same account. Ended losing all pages one day, and more and more people were doing that, Facebook made lot of changes. Well, method didn't die but wasn't that easy and profitable, and I had hard time setting up a new pages with 300k+ friends. - Fake dating site : Well, at first it was more a test, but I was using macros to PM some horny guys on chatroom, promoting a dating site I had created. Guys were sending an SMS to subscribe and message the fake girls I had created, and then they were then redirected to an "Update" Page. Which obviously was there all time. Made something like 800? and stopped as it wasn't right. Well, paid my holydays that summer. I then stopped everything because of my job, but I was still reading BHW on a daily basis. Now, 1st May 2013 I already have some things I'm working on in order to get my stable 100?/day until the end of this year. I'm pretty sure this can be done if I put some hard work there. My current websites : Website #1 - 1300 Local EM Searches - CPC 0.88? - EMD with country TLD. I have around 15 pages, targeting different keywords of this niche. I write everything myself. Main keyword : #1 Adsense + Amazon Website #2 - 880 Local EM Searches - CPC 0.72? - EMD .net Main keyword : #1 (Well I was #3 and just checked right now on SerpBook I'm #1 today. Yeah ) It's just a 3 pages website with Adsense there + a banner to a related clickbank product. I'm getting some hops from clickbank but no sales so far. But people are not buying much e-book from there in my country I guess. Website #3 - 750 Local EM Searches - CPC 0.82? - EMD .com EMD Keyword : #2 Targeted Keyword : #240 - I used to rank for this one before, but I had to switch domain and rebuilt the website and I'm getting hard times ranking this one now. It's 3600 EM Local Searches and 0.80CPC. Most of others targeted keywords are ranking between #9 and #20. Like website #1, I have 10 pages + of well written content. Adsense + Amazon there. Website #4 - 5400 Local EM Searches - CPC 0.78? - EMD with country TLD. Made this one some days ago. 4 pages of well written content. No adsense yet. It's indexed and ranked #10 the first day, but now it's nowhere. 0 backlinking done for now. It will be back soon on the rankings I think with only internal SEO. Website #5 - 5400 Local EM Searches - CPC 0.89? - EMD with country TLD. New one too. Just one article around 1k words. I don't plan to put adsense or amazon on this one. I just want to rank page 1 and then sell it to a company or sell ad spaces. This one is a bit different from the others as it's more something like "City+Plumber" for example. And I think I can easily rank this one well. Nowhere on the SERPs for now. Internal SEO : I try to optimise all my internal SEO by myself with what I learned there. I write all the content. I don't know shit about any of the niches I'm working one, but it's easy to do. When I have a keyword, I search it on Google, open many tabs, read articles about the keyword, and just write something of about 500-600 words. All pages are optimized for keywords with Yoast SEO Plugin on WP. I use images from Google images. I try to get pictures from others countries. I need to learn a bit more about internal linking. But right now I try to always link my internal pages when I use another keyword in the article. External SEO : I write several articles and created 2.0 blogs on Tumblr, Wordpress, Yola etc.. You can easily find list with PR on BHW, it has been shared multiple times. I add pictures and videos in each article, and 1 or 2 backlinks to my money site + 1 backlink to Wikipedia or another authority site. I create Twitter and Facebook page, sometime Pinterest or others too. I still need to do it for some sites right now. I create video and post it to Youtube, Dailymotion, Vimeo too. I need to put more work on my SEO, working on my T2 or T3 now. I'll probably buy Licorn or GSA soon, I need to know which one suits me the best and how it will really help me. For 2 websites, I also have a big spinned article I manualy write. I start with a 600 words article, re-write each sentence 4 times, and then spin each word several times. This is taking long time to write, but then I can use it a lot. No automaticaly spun article there as there is no good one in my language. Others things running : Website Creation I'm opening a business too in order to sell websites and some others services in my local area. Website is finished and running. Currently page 3 in the SERP for the first city targeted. As I didn't even finished the paper work yet, I don't have any customer from now. Still, I made 3 demo websites for now so my portfolio isn't empty. I'll probably make some site for friends at start, probably for free or a few ?. I'm using WP templates for all the sites. Easy to use and modify, and a lot of choices. I made some visit cards and flyers too on Photoshop, look neat ! Order a gig on Fiverr in order to have a presentation video, look great too. Posted in on Youtube, it's ranking page 3 in the SERP. I will rank this one page 1 for sure with some work. About that, I posted a 500 words article in the description, and I think recently long description can help a lot in YT Ranking. Maybe I'm wrong. Tumblr I have 2 tumblr blogs running. I used 2 tools, one to scrape images, another one to queue posts. I have around 1600 followers in each. First one I plan on using it for promotion to a future website that a friend is developing. A niche social website. Will take some time before it's finished. Second one will be monetized with affiliate offers later. It's really 0 work, taking me like 5 minutes every 2 days. Fiverr resselling I started to create a website in order to resell some Fiverr gigs and BHW services in my country. Still a lot to do about this one, and create a plan in order to get customers. Youtube + CPA Well, that's something I would like to put some work into also. Already tried quickly, but I wasn't doing it the right way and lost account. I need to come with a plan too there, and I'll probably look for quality instead of quantity. Well. That was a long post. I'll try to often update the post and keep you updated with what I do. As you can see I'm not talking about earnings yet, as they are very low. If you have any question feel free to ask. Also, if you guys have some advices, feel free too !
