    Hello everyone, I will start my first real site (my own domain, paid hosting, real and original content) in 2 weeks or so.
    Could you give a newbie some tips? What hosting site should I use ? I`m planning to use hostgator as I currently have less than $50. I want to buy the domain which is arround 15 bucks max and pay for 2 months of hosting, after that, if need be I will pay the fee every month from my pocket till I get some profit.
    I`m planning to make a site with many articles and stories, news and so on. I plan to promote it by using facebook( a facebook like this to continue script is something that I`m thinking about), twitter, linkedin, pinterest, bubblews, hubpages, and whatever other free way I can use to promote it.
    My way of thinking is that, if I write good quality articles and I work hard they will come. I`m not hunting a particular keyword and I`ll have articles from every domain I can think of. Also, I`m planning to apply to adsense after I get around 50 articles posted.
    One thing I want to ask, If I put 2 ads on my page, If I get 1000 visitors, how much will I get from medium paying countries?
    This is my plan and my idea, can you give me any advices on the journey that I`m going on? Thank you and have a good day, cheers ^_^

    How much you'll make with Adsense if you have 1000 visitors from medium paying countries? What are those "medium paying countries"? And why not target U.S. visitors instead?

    Anyways, it would depend a lot on the traffic, but with a site like the one you just described, getting around $5 for 1000 visitors would be pretty good.

    I suggest BlueHost, you also might want to learn on-page SEO and manual web 2.0 link building, build one in a day after few weeks of the site's creation, just my tips - don't take me as a Professional in Internet Marketing.
    As for the pay, it really depends on the niche mostly.
    You will get around 2% ctr, which is 20 clicks/day, if your site's CPC for niche is around 4$, you might be able to do around 1$ per click with 20$/day.

    Biggest procrastination I've been in a while.

    To answer your question...
    1000 visitors * 5% CTR * 30% of a $2 keyword = get your calculator out.

    If I am not mistaken, average CTR is around 2%? Sorry, seems like 5% is kind of high.
    Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

    The site will be in english and I`ll try to target America and the U.K. But I want to know if I get some money with other countries like Romania or Bulgaria. And that $5 would be a month or a day, if I get 1000 visitors in a day. Also, I cannot start my site earlier because I must go tomorrow to make my debit card, and it takes around 1 week to make that card-.- another 2 or 3 days to connect it to paypal and after that I can make my site .... The thing is I got the money today for the site and the card to day :(

    Man, we need to know the CPC of your niche, go to Google Keyword Planner, enter your keyword and say us the bidding the advertisers are doing on the keyword, like 0.20$ or 2.00$?

    I like your plan... don't start thinking about how much you will make yet as that could detract you from building something properly... just build it, work on it and then monetize it after it has a little age and some traffic. If you need help figuring out things to do to make the site work properly send me an email - gregatbizop@gmail.com - and I'll help you for free.

    My CTR has never been as low as 5%. That really varies due to a lot of different factors.

    The average means nothing to me so I would not know what that was.

    I don`t know my key work XD,, Sorry I`m really new to this. I `ll have funny articles, things like:20 pictures of foxes that will make your heart melt... 10 stuning photos of raging volcanoes,,,, news from a country raged by war,,, vegetables that regrow themselves... And so on, I`ll have articles similar to this and I don`t think I`m targeting any keyword like this.

    Before you spend your money like a fool, let me tell you something.
    Just don't take this as offense.
    Instead of being a fool, please, invest more time - You have to understand how Search Engines work, you have to able to do manual links, you have to understand what's the interest of people and what is keyword researching
    It seems to me that you have fallen under a false conclusion that people get driven by random crazy pictures, well I'm here to say you that it is bullshit, unless it is done by Entrepreneurs.
    I hope you will take my advice and listen to it properly.
    Good luck, OP.

    I had 7-10% CTRs on my micro niche sites when they were a thing. The screenshots might still be up on my old BST.

    Just use common sense and it's not that hard.

    I'm into software now and not Adsense, but 7%+ was the norm for me when I was doing Adsense.

    No offence taken, but if I make my site focused around shareable content can`t I make something about it? Things like this could be shared a few times by people and from those shares I can get some more trafic and so on. I just want to see if I can do something on my own and trial and error might be the best way to learn.

    Yeah, thanks for keeping me updated.
    I would also like to point-out that getting 20% CTR isn't really an achievement for a European website made for kids with flash games, good luck, OP.

    You can try so, as long as you spend money that you can afford to lose. Good luck, man.

    Lol, Please don't bump this thread - If you want to talk off-topic, do it in the Lounge =P.
    But be aware, some assholes lure there that think posting crap in the Lounge is bad.
    Just say them "Let me point you to the Money Making section, your in the wrong one."
    Good luck.

    Pump up quality content first, then come back later.
    99% want the perfect setup, but only 1% take action in doing it.
