    SEE: http://www.apexforum.com/threads/what-are-your-goals-for-2016.176/

    My goals for 2017 for myself are:
    • Launch 500 niche sites and have them surpass $5,200/month by December
    • Launch the SaaS and get 100 subscribers by end of year
    • Launch adult streaming site and rank it #1 for the 20,000 queries/month keyword
    • Launch PBN
    • Pay off student loans ($7,000 left out of $50,000! :D )
    • Register an Estonian LLC.
    The goals for my client are: Double December's SEO revenue by June and double June's SEO revenue by December (so 4x increase in SEO revenue in 1 year).

    • Double the revenue for my businesses
    • Lose 15% of my body weight
    • Live healthier and happier - de-stressing
    • Take 2 major trips (one in summer and one in winter)

    OK. Let's commit to these

    1. 9-5
    1.1 Don't get fired. ;)

    1.2 Continue punching above my paygrade.
    2016 was a great performance, let's make 2017 even better.
    1.3 Get that education course
    Edu budget is 2K per year normally. Last year was so stressful, I didn't do any. Might get two out of this year.
    (First one will be stupid papers for something I know already, Number 2 is a ?)​

    2. IM / Entrepreneurial

    2.1 Build that authority site
    Plus case study here.
    2.2 Build that automated site
    Including doing a case study on it here.
    2.3 Build out and flip all the sites I wanna get rid of.

    2.4 Find someone I can talk to, best locally.
    Doing this solo is doing my head in.
    3. Other / private
    3.1 Fitness
    ... ahem...
    3.2 The MOVE
    Family is going to move into a house.
    Yay! Big project!
    3.3 Rework personal portfolio site

    3.4 Learn PYTHON
    Also see 2.1 (automated video script) and 2.2 (automated site).
    As for python, I am dabbling around in it, also doing advanced stuff in NLP, etc.. but I want to learn it all proper like.
    Overall, 2017 is going to be dominated by my work in the 9-5 and family.

    BIG QUESTION!
    Keep / revive blindapeseo?

    Q1 Update

    Client's SEO Traffic went up 172% (comparing December 2016 vs last 30 days). Client's SEO revenue went up 18.85%. That's a nice jump but still not enough to meet June's goal. I still have more work to do. We're top 10 for a 14,800 query/month search. If it gets #1, the client will meet June's goal IMO.

    My goals:
    • Launch 500 niche sites and have them surpass $5,200/month by December - Getting there. Writer is writing steadily, I'm sourcing the link builders, and the server will be up in a month. It should be finalized in Q2.
    • Launch the SaaS and get 100 subscribers by end of year - haven't touched this. This will be touched in Q2.
    • Launch adult streaming site and rank it #1 for the 20,000 queries/month keyword - Site is published but not that good IMO. Its on page 2 or 3 for the keyword with just PBN links. I'll do more link building for it in Q2. It gets 50 hits/day at the moment, which is nothing in adult since the conversion rate is .2%.
    • Launch PBN - done. trained a VA for this. She's in charge of PBNs now. Awesome.
    • Pay off student loans ($7,000 left out of $50,000! :D ) - pretty good here!
    • Register an Estonian LLC. - I'll do this in Q4

    I generally break up my yearly goals into quarterly goals rather than monthly goals, which makes the monthly thread a little more challenging to me since most of those goals were made with a 3 month timeline in mind.

    With that being said I'm going to be missing all of my quarterly goals this time since we weren't able to get the WordAi update released this quarter. I definitely considered that a possibility so the revenue targets had secondary numbers that were the targets if WordAi Version 4 wasn't released by the end of the quarter so I'll have to wait for my bookkeeper to finish March's numbers to know how well I did relative to the goals I set out at the beginning of the quarter.

    Late to the party but my Goal for 2017 is to be earning a steady (and increasing) $4,000 from all of my Internet related businesses by mid August 2017. I plan to achieve this by:

    • Q1. Develop websites monetized with some of the following; Adsense, eBay, Clickbank. Push traffic from Pinterest. This project is complete but an ongoing tasks to update occasionally. Currently averaging $4.50 a day adsense and increasing weekly.
    • Phase 2 yet to start. Push Traffic from Instagram.
    • Q2. Drop Shipping - Online Retail system. Sell products via Amazon, Etsy, eBay and own website/websites. Possibly set up Shopify store. Must be mostly automated. This project has started.
    • Q3. Sell Phone Leads to local businesses
