    I currently have two "news" websites. I am basically writing articles/news and promoting them through various websites, ex. digg. The on-page seo should be decent as well.

    Website Red Stats:
    Pageviews: 403
    Clicks: 1
    CTR: 0.25%

    Website Blue Stats:
    Pageviews: 2,127
    Clicks: 4
    CTR: 0.19%

    Everything related to the adsense websites will be whitehat. I want to be using them as long-term so I've concluded blackhat would be pointless, at least for an inexperienced user like me.
    I'm using a free blogger template ( I will "upgrade" to wordpress once the earnings justify it ) and while it's good, it seems that for some reason it doesn't display ads on smartphones, I haven't checked tablets. I will either fix that if I can, or find another template. I'm expecting an increase in CTR from this.

    Things to do tomorrow (it's getting late tonight):



    • Write at least 3 articles - one has to be minimum 500 words.
    • Fix the smartphone ads issue.
    • Read the "How I Built A Top 100 Blog In 12 Months & How You Can Do It Too! (THANKS BHW)" pinned thread ( can't post links yet )
    • Report back at the end of the day

    The reason I'm posting this journey is perhaps selfish. I'm having issues with procrastination and motivation so I think letting other people know and receiving feedback will greatly improve my chances of achieving my goals. Hopefully I will be in a position that I can help other newbie internet marketers sooner than later.

    That's all for now, I'll report back tomorrow.

    P.S Feel free to post any suggestions for improvements in my journey thread.

    good luck with this journey. I have issues with procrastination, but I find when I get started I really get going :) it just takes ages to start.

    can you put your earnings on here too for us?

    Whitehat and Adsense go hand in hand bro.

    From my experience the real difference between banking from Adsense earning pennies is consistency. Work every day, even if it's just one hour. Dedication and handling your websites as a business will make all the difference in the world.

    The best of luck.
