Journey to $200 a month using Amazon and Adsense

Journey to $200 a month using Amazon and Adsense

I decided to do build a niche site that will be earning $200 monthly with Amazon and Adsense, although the main purpose of the site is to sell amazon products. If you recall, I did a niche challenge with some bloggers and it was semi-successful and semi-failure, the reason why it is a failure, is we are yet to hit the first page for our targeted keyword and semi successful because we are ranking in the top 20 to 30. (To make money with your site, you need to be ranking in the top 5 for your targeted keyword).

Anyways, the niche was a public one shared by Tung Tran of and I felt I need to be creative a little by do my own keyword research. That is exactly what I did. I spend about 2 hours searching for amazon buying keywords and then I came up with keywords that will be easy to rank!


I have been building niche site about a year ago and I have made a few mistakes as well as have a few success- currently one of my niche site is making about $50 monthly from adsense and am looking to add more articles to it and see if it will shoot up to $150/month. I also have authority website making money from adsense and selling my own products and offering my service. Right now I want to show anyone who is procrastinating that if they could just take the time to START today, in 3 months time, they will be reaping the result or learn where they go wrong and then build a better site.

What is the Goal of this project

The goal is a simple one, to make $200 per month with amazon and Adsense for a medium competition keyword that has in total best amazon products to promote this summer6k search per month. Like I said above, the keyword looks a little easy to rank for, so I will be doing a minimal SEO on it.

Am going to reach this goal in 2/3 months time, I will report my success and failure here- if I achieve my goal, I will be flipping the site to get more money to build authority site that will making about $100 daily. So I need a lot of money to hire content writer, seo service, etc.

What I have done so far

The total money I will spend on this project is $150 or less.

Here is what I have done so far;

Bought the domain from godaddy with one of the godaddy coupon codes – $2.17

Order for 6 articles of 500 words each – $30

I will publish the articles all in one day and wait for them to get index. After a week, I will order for another set of 6 articles. 70% of the article will be reviewing the products am promoting and the other 30% will be information article regarding the products.

Install wordpress and added all the necessary plugins.

My next goal is to create a twitter, facebook page, google plus account for the site and I have a pinterest board of 6500 real people and the niche is kind of related to women, so I hope I will get traffic from

How I plan to promote the niche site.

I said above that all I will spend on this niche site is just $150 and since about $70 has gone with article and domain name, I have about $80 left, so I will order for SEO service that cost $40. This project is going to be a success and trust me you will see my amazon earning screenshots very soon.

I won’t be reviewing the keyword for now as I spend about 2 hours to come up with them, publishing them here will only increase the competition. 😀

I will update this weekly until I have reach my goal.

Now your turn:

Am still learning about niche sites and therefore am open for suggestion from other bloggers who are already successful in building niche sites. Is there something you want to see included in the next update? Please get connected with me via the comment section.

I have made some progress and you would love read my latest update on this journey!

    Wish you best of luck, I’ve also started mine but it’s just adsense, will lake a look into amazon soon, btw…which hosting do you use and recommend, you mentioned only domain name (godaddy)

    • January 13, 2014 at 5:43 am

      I use bluehost/servinio and both of them works great.
      Oh, and good luck with your journey! One of my website is currently making money with adsense and it is so sweet to see passive income coming from this site every day.
      Amazon is much more easier and safer to adsense, give it a try when you are ready.

  • January 15, 2014 at 5:19 pm

    Nice investment. It is sad that google brings my niche site to the top for a week or so and then it starts falling and disappears.

    I still am learning.

    After reading a lot of article related niche website, specially your strategy , am thinking deeply to make niche website. But I have a question , do you think 15 to 20 article is enough for niche website.

    • February 2, 2014 at 7:18 pm

      Yeah Haroon, 20 article is more than enough for starting a niche site, and when you found out that the site is making money, you can decide to add more content.
      If you have any question, please ask away.

      Thank you John for your comment, i agree with you that SEO is plain simple for beginners, if you can only practice what you read 😀

    Hi Frank,

    I am a big fan of being transparent and hope you can share your site and keywords to us soon. Not that I am going to copy your keywords or anything like that but to see the process of the site growing day by day. That is what Spencer from nichepursuits sharing.

    I’m sure you make the money in due time. Just wonder how long it takes to reach that goal.

    • February 28, 2014 at 8:08 pm

      The site has gone through a lot and it is an interesting one 😀 it got hit by google and i did a few things and was able to make a bounce back.
      I might not share this particular niche 😀 but i will be starting a public case study soon.

  • March 10, 2014 at 1:39 pm

    These figures are really interesting as $200 is really a dream for every newbie to blogging. I will follow your tips. Thanks for nice share.
