    About Me
    I've been doing internet marketing for around 5 years. My first niche was the movies niche. I found success quick through good, hard work. I reached $1000 in a day for the first time within two months. I was then making a steady $1000/day and hit more than $5000 in a day 2 times since then. My main traffic source was organic traffic via SEO. As the competition grew, Google made changes and 3rd party sites, which I depended on, became stricter with movie content, I lost my drive because my hard work was not paying off in the long-term. I sold my movie sites and attempted to go 100% white-hat. I did not have much success here due to lack of patience and frustration. I continued doing the movies here and there after the white-hat campaign was not successful. I mixed in PPV events, TV shows, etc. I saw some success, enough to keep my head above water, but everything was short-term.

    A Journey Back To The Top
    5 years later, I am setting out to return to the beginning. The goal is to reach a steady $1000/day. There won't be a time limit.. I will get there when I get there. I will be combining a variety of niches, strategies, traffic sources, etc. To start, I will be focusing mainly on the movie niche and will also be using the gaming niche as a secondary niche. The main themes here are patience, persistence, and perseverance.

    Where I Am Now
    As of now, there are two strategies and two niches. I started slowly a couple weeks ago.

    1. Rank main site for Movie keywords using SEO software. (CPA)
    2. Rank gaming Youtube videos using views, likes, favorites, comments, etc. (CPA)

    I have been jumping from network to network trying to find a good EPC. I have decided to stick with AdworkMedia for now.

    The expenses thus far are SEO software, article writing, private proxies, captchas. I won't be keeping track of expenses and will be focusing mainly on the income. The goal of $1000/day will make the expenses appear minimal.

    I have made some money in the past two weeks via various networks, but not enough to write home about. I will be starting at $0 for this journey.

    Will be following this closely as I like to see how the movie niche has changed in the last year and a half.
    Best of luck.

    Thanks.. yeah..it has changed quite a bit. The 1st page of Google is constantly changing now. My approach is to rank my main site as opposed to a 3rd party site (which most people do to provide quick, temporary results). It's going to take some trial and error, and some time to get on top of the rankings.

    First of all, I want to wish you good luck with your journey! Hope you will achieve your goal asap. Can you say us please how exactly you plan to monetizate with the CPA ? You will lock portions of your site or how ?

    Thank you. For the movies, I set up a video player landing page. The player pauses and a content locker is shown. For the gaming, the content locker shows once the download button is clicked. This is the initial setup. I will play with this as we go.

    When you say you have five movies on your site, you mean that you are streaming them or have them available for download? Couldn't you run into issues with copyright by doing that?

    After the user fills out the CPA offer, they are redirecting to a source where they could potentially watch the movie. So, I am sorta acting as the middle man. It is definitely a gray area, but I haven't ran into any trouble in the past aside from a couple emails to take down the page.

    Day 1

    Movies
    Today I simply continued building backlinks to the 5 movies. Every Friday are new releases and this is what I will be targeting. I will be working on getting ahead of the game and working on the new releases around a month before they come out. The main site is ranking as high as #20 and is mostly in the #50 - #100 range. Building quality backlinks for all the movies will give the domain more authority and boost up all the rankings over time. The goal here is to build only quality links and do it naturally. Tomorrow, I will continue the backlinking. I am now just waiting for the next batch of article from my article writer.

    Games
    I currently have 25 private proxies from SquidProxies. For each IP, there will be 4 Youtube accounts made. One will be used with EnhanceViews to earn credits. The other 3 accounts will each have 3 gaming videos uploaded to them. So, each IP will have 9 Youtube videos. 9 x 25 = 225. So I will be looking to reach 225 Youtube videos as the first goal. I currently have 7 Youtube videos. 4 were uploaded using my home IP. The other 3 were uploaded on the 1st private proxy today. I also created 2 more accounts for the 1st private proxy to get ahead of the game. Tomorrow I will upload the remaining 6 videos for this proxy.

    Overall
    So far so good. The CTR can be improved, but I will just be focusing on driving traffic first. Today I received my first (2) leads for a total of $1.95. These leads were both from the movie niche. The EPC is at a nice $.14, so can't complain there. So overall, I'm pleased with the first day. As a side note, I will be adding TV Shows into the mix. I am not too sure about the strategy, but will most likely start testing with Youtube first.
