My Live Adsense Experiment! Follow from day 1

    Hey there everyone,


    I am a regular guy who has been trying to make a living online for about 3 years now. I created hundreds of websites and never followed up, I started tens of projects and spent a lot of money online without being successful. Part of the reason why I couldn't succeed was because I was too busy with other things like school (I went to an ivy league school in the US). So, my problem is inconsistency and not following up.
    That's why I decided to start from scratch, I am not making any money online these days, so why not take it slow and steady and start from scratch?

    My strategy will not be revealed, I will just tell you the broad lines of what I am working on. Build a network of websites and rely on Adsense at first and then expand my income streams.

    First off, I will post updates on my progress here every week. The number of websites that were created, how much I spent, the methods I used to promote them and everything else you might need to know. The goal behind this thread is to motivate me, knowing that I will have followers and that I need to let them know what I am up to.

    Wish me luck and I hope I will be making a full time income in exactly 12 months from now.( Not the US standards of course, which means $2000 a month is just fine).


    Financial Goal: $3000/month in a year from this date.

    First steps: Keyword Research of course, then choosing domain names, templates, website types (blog or static website) and content creation for the most part.

    Thanks a lot everyone. :eek:



    PS: I forgot to mention that there will be a FREE REPORT of what I exactly did to to reach my goals. The Report will be given away to the followers of this thread.

    I also need to let you know that the internet is truly a treasure that most of us are neglecting, let's all benefit from it (financially that is).

    Thanks everyone, bur kodut, I don't think 3000 a month is a high goal, I might surpass that amount knowing all the tools that I have and the fact that I am very determined.

    after school then you will have your job as a new distraction, unless of course you don't plan to get one, but then again what's the point of going to school then.

    I usually before taking/making sites or projects have a pencilled outline. Do you have one?

    Of course I do, the outline and everything else is ready, the tools, the templates, the keyword research is almost done as well.
    I will post weekly updates as I go along this project, and this is meant to motivate others.

    If it's not very clear, what I will do is make money with adsense and will not use any other method, no affiliate marketing, no eBay, no direct selling, I will create informational websites or blogs and make money through ad clicks and impressions.

    If I can motivate a number of DP'ers, it will be great to work together at the same speed towards a common goal.
