Can you send me a url of a certain PAA on Google so I know how they will be structured?
There are some autogenerated paa sites shared in paa threads, but I don't do that kind of websites nor do I know their url.
What a great start
Good luck with this one!
Thanks man. That article dropped from 1st page quick after, so no more traffic. But I have high hopes.

Today was a productive day. I wrote 4 articles and 6 more articles got indexed in Google.

Now that I have an English blog I can finally use stuff like answer the public, Quora and many other websites that aren't available in other languages.

I have a plan for Quora:
  • Write short answers to niche related questions and after a while I'll check the views.
  • Edit the ones with many views and include a link to my blog.
  • If I don't have an article on the topic I'll write one beforehand (augmented with related PAAs).

This is also a good way to find writing topics.

Congrats on the progress.

Might I suggest you do all this keyword research in one go over an entire week or so?
It will ensure you have enough to work on for months to come, and you won't get lost in the work.

Sometimes it's a pain to switch from KW research to article research to posting, etc.
Just get yourself 50 article titles. Then spend a few days creating outlines for each one.

Once you're done, just concentrate on the content.
I truly think you'll save weeks worth of time this way.

Thanks man.

I covered the keyword research, got em titles. But some of them should be written first. Quora will help with that.

Yeah, doing it more orderly is always good. Like that guy Shaun, love to watch his updates, he is truly a robot of content generation xD.

In the last few days I published another 4 articles.

Google is now indexing everything.

I added a link on Quora and now I get 5-10 visitors per day from there.

How do you create your outlines?

Wrote another 4 articles. I'm getting in the groove. Don't feel any grind yet, the process is enjoyable af.

Got 9 visitors from Quora yesterday. Google traffic is playing hide and seek, no visitors yesterday, but duh for a month old site.

How do you create your outlines?
I myself just write the sub-headings and that'll do for an outline. Not sure how the guy you asked does it, but this is one of those details that don't matter.

I wrote 8 more articles since Saturday. I usually write at a much slower rate, but writing in this niche pleases me. Now I got 50 more to go before I reach my 1st goal.

Nothing else to report. I'll post a screenshot when I get new traffic.

Keeping the pace at more than 1 article per day because a new blog needs as much quality content as possible asap. I checked other journeys and I think I'm the only FOOL writing more than 1 article/day MANUALLY. Kikerinka is busy with his non-profit, Bloop disappeared, molcho has exams, Aleksandar and others are outsourcing. Even Shaun "the content machine" Marrs can barely write 1 article per day nowadays due to burn out.

Everybody else under the sun is into AI content.

I tried outsourcing several times, even at $50 per 1K words I didn't like the quality. Maybe I'm picky, but the guy at $30/1k words had better quality than the $50 dude. These prices are so relative. But it the end, it's much better to write the first 100 articles myself because I know the niche.

In the meantime I found an aged domain in my niche which had a thousand articles on waybackmachine (most are bad, but I'll keep the OK ones). So I will dedicate a small amount of time to set it up and add old content + experiment with lower quality content like automated PAAs and everything that AI can offer nowadays. This will have 2 purposes:

- To discover 0 comp keywords with good volume that I can use on my main blog.
- To link back to my main blog when I get juice.

@KingCoppyWritter waiting on your journey to resume, don't leave me hanging!!!

Keep going @blogmen, you are on a role now. It seems like only yesterday you were at 20-something post and now you're closing in on 100. I will be out with an update soon, trying to gather information to make a big push.

Hi, you're on a great path, and I can see why the AI thing is so appealing. Faster growth, easier to work with, would make many things easier. I was also considering creating some of my content this way and made a conscious decision not to. I just don't like the fact that selenium-less content is becoming more and more, and good content is taking a back seat.

I can say with full conviction that humanity is getting stupider and lazier, and I don't want to go down this path. My texts are supposed to give answers to questions that are understandable and entertain, AI can't do that. And I hope it won't be able to in the foreseeable future either, otherwise, as Kikerinka said, it's over with the time of blogging as we do it.

We will then be rationalised away and go down the road one step further to stupidity. I am so vehemently against it because I can see every day in my job how the level of people is going down the drain and I have more and more the feeling of being "surrounded by idiots". I think AI contributes to that.

About your idea with the blog: Identifying longtails and 0 competition keys is a good idea. I would only set backlinks when your blog has collected some natural ones. But I am also extremely cautious.
Good luck with your project

Someone always have to bear the flag, so maybe this time it is you :).

BTW, I feel a few people are still writing/publishing manually, under a radar. Think @leit , @Anon9109 , @molcho , @some_nextman etc. I have also some info about Bloooop that kind of explains his "disappearance" from here, but it is not something I feel it is right sharing here, unless he does it himself.... But maybe he will reappear sooner than you think ;). So do not worry, you aren't alone in your writing inferno :D.

BTW, the one member I wonder what has happened to him is @larcha . He was doing great and had two websites with premium networks going, but then he disappeared from both here & YouTube...

Good luck also with the new domain, I hope it will help you discover some gems in 0 search volume keywords!

Definitely share your feelings here about humanity. Luckily I do not work in a corporation :D.

All hope is not lost though.... While in some situations I also feel like surrounded by idiots, I also keep meeting new interesting people & having quality interactions, at least from time to time. Good luck to you on your journey, and maybe a day will come when you will leave the corporate job!

How do you find 0 comp paa?
excuse me I'm new to this subject, what is unanswered PAA?
Questions that have bad answers in google.

Yes, surely I won't do it now. But speaking of links, yesterday I discovered a natural link, doesn't appear in gsc yet, but it's a good one.
how did you find the domain?
GoDaddy auctions. Search by niche keywords.
Someone always have to bear the flag, so maybe this time it is you :)
Lol, an honor.
BTW, I feel a few people are still writing/publishing manually, under a radar. Think @leit , @Anon9109 , @molcho , @some_nextman etc
Nice. Will check them out.
