Fuckyeah Three months to FREEDOM

In three months I will have built a portfolio of niche sites producing $2,000+ per month. I will detail exactly how in this NEWBIE thread. Site One: The Limitless Man - Get Smarter, Think Faster, Be Stronger, Live Forever | The Limitless Man | Get Smarter, Think Faster, Be Stronger, Live Forever. Target Keywords? Im sure you can guess by taking a look at the site. My strategy? Adsense/Adwords and Affiliate programs (no more than three programs). Not only am I webmaster for the site, Im a nootropic user, so if you have questions leave them in the thread.

DO NOT GO EASY ON ME! Constructive criticism is appreciated, as I am a former Marine and can take what you dish out. Is my strategy screwed? Is the layout crap? Is the niche oversaturated? Fire away. I will be posting progress daily (since I now have TONS of free time!).

Adsense already producing $2 a day. Not a bad start. Using Fiverr for link building. Listening to Patt Flynn and Andrew Warner religiously.

Thanks for the 411! Im up to 116 visitors per day, but its not steady traffic. My adsense ctr is 1.6% _ not sure if thats good. I need to be rolling $40 per day in adsense, so no idea if having just one niche site well get me there! Input?

Day #2

Adjusted my Adsense competitive ad filter to improve my pay per click. Dont know how effective it will be, but I found a list somewhere of a long list of cheap urls. Anybody got any reccomendations on how I can comprehensively test what works and what doesnt before I scale my efforts?

Ad revenues yesterday = $2.84 on traffic of 116 uniques.

Am I on the right path anybody?

Considering you're supposedly somehow making 3 dollars a day with a site that isn't about anything, I'd say you're on the right path.

People! Way to harass a newb.

Right now, this is not too shabby a beginning, if the thread starter keeps at it.

So maybe some pointers instead of just hazing the poor guy?

In this thread I've learned $40*30 = $2000

If any of you ever figure out how to do basic math you'll be dangerous/employable.

Some pointers.

Right now, regular, quality content should be your main concern.
A medium to large articles every 2 days.

Also: FILL THOSE HEADLINE NAV ITEMS!

At the same time, build linnks. Start slowly, then get some services a few weeks in.

The integration with amazon sucks. Make it look like the rest of the pages, write unique descriptions for the items.

Best is a blog post every now and then for each supplement / book / whatever you are peddling.

Go!

I also use a wordpress plugin by some fuck named Yoast. It lets me know my kw density, readability, etc.

Im not too big on collecting every tool under the sun. I figure if I can figure out how to use these two I will be proficient enough.

I dont want to throw any kws out, but Im sure you can figure them out for yourself. Max number of Kws? Im not sure what oyure asking, but Im staying within a family of about 8 per site.

Ads not showing up on sites, hours being lost trying to write my own content, random code breaking for no apparent reason...Its time to start experimenting with outsourcing. Anybody have any advice? Traffic is increasing, but not earnings. Either a quantum leap is right around the corner, or three months to $1k/ month adsense was too optimistic. Thoughts??

Really, this is the kind of site I intend on making eventually once I'm done with all of my static sites producing my steady bottom line. In a different niche, of course.

The only thing I'd do differently is include my keyword in the domain and try to rank for a beast of a term.

But I'd try to write a solid post every few days, reviewing products, exercise routines, supplements, nootropics, movies on the topic, other websites, etc.

I'd try to funnel as much link juice from every post to the homepage, but I'd try to rank every single post as well. Each one would target a phrase. And I'd load the inner pages into all the software and spam the crap out of them. They'd rank and earn, the homepage would get juiced, and then I'd only put quality links towards the homepage for the most part.

It'd be a long-term project, but it'd be full of win. You are already on your way.

As for outsourcing HTML or Wordpress code css_designer is the man.

I have not found any good writers, so you might want to keep doing that yourself.

On the marine site, the ads are showing for me, BTW.

Along the lines of what Hobbster said: if you can find longtails in your niche, or even just lower volume KWs with low CI's, you can use those as article titles, and then try to rank those posts.

The aggregate search volume is the only thing that matters at the end of the day. It doesn't really matter how you get there.

But I'd try to write a solid post every few days, reviewing products, exercise routines, supplements, nootropics, movies on the topic, other websites, etc.

I'd try to funnel as much link juice from every post to the homepage, but I'd try to rank every single post as well. Each one would target a phrase. And I'd load the inner pages into all the software and spam the crap out of them. They'd rank and earn, the homepage would get juiced, and then I'd only put quality links towards the homepage for the most part.

It'd be a long-term project, but it'd be full of win. You are already on your way.
Hey, I really appreciate it! Im already leveraging this strategy, so I will keep you posted and drop you a paypal tip when I start making some coin! (j/p)

Got it! I dont know why I didnt think to do that. Guess I just fell in love with all the high search volumes of the big keywords (and ignored the competition, too!)

I gave this comment a like. At first, I thought you were being facetious, but after doing a little homework I palm-slapped myself on the forehead. Thank you for (inadvertently?) leading me in the right direction!

What I was doing was blogging. That takes TONS of work and time. And who wants that? Niche sites are my new focus.

It may be significantly easier for you to rank 10 pages for longtail KW's with an aggregate total search volume of 5000 ELMS, than it is to rank one page for one KW with comparable search volume.

Quick update. Thanks to IZAYA and EMP, and all you others, I am up to making $1+ a day from 3 sites. If I keep progressing and building sites out, I should be done fucking around with a day job by summertime.

Since I started this experiment, I have discovered Fiverr and Tweetattacks. These two tools have been a Godsend for driving traffic, building links, submitting my shit to directories, and design issues.

What other tools are you guys using? Should I stop fucking around with service providers and just buy my own tools (Like Magic Directory Submitter and AMR) or should I just keep paying others to do it for me?

Also, Im following the Adsense heatmap as best I can, but anyone have any other advice on ad placement?

Still figuring out this affiliate shit. I only sold 9 items via Amazon last month. Pshhhh

Makes me happy to hear you are having some success!

There are tons of tools available, and it's easy to fall into the "magic bullet" way of thinking that a specific tool will solve your problems. I'd recommend Scrapebox, because it's extremely versatile, and cost-effective.

No way but to experiment, experiment, experiment.

I found that it is often better to have only 1 ad or link on a page instead of more, but your mileage may vary.

Check this out:
Blind Ape Seo AIDA landing page design basics and example files

And yeah, replace those podcasts with reading the blind ape, of course.

Just bought two exact match domains and have since built three more sites. Earnings are slow going, and experimentation is taking quite some time. Im not going to hit the three month mark, even following your advice, Izaya - which I have been doing on top of everything else read here. (Minus the ALN stuff, heard Google is putting the smack down on blog and article networks and such)

BTW, What other tools are you guys using? Should I stop fucking around with service providers and just buy my own tools (Like Magic Directory Submitter and AMR) or should I just keep paying others to do it for me?


I will keep calm and carry on.
