I have been very busy the last three months but I will not bore with the details. Even though I haven’t had the time to update you all on the Niche Site Journey(Sorry), I have been able to keep working on this site and improving it. The last update was in the beginning of September and a lot of things have changed and I am very excited to show you all the progress. I suggest you read the last update here before reading this article so you can catch up on all of the details. Enough of the talking and let’s get right into the details of the site!
At the time of the last update there were a total of 16 PBN links pointed at the site and now there are 23 total PBN links. I have only added 7 PBN links in three months but I am planning on starting to up the amount of links. In the next month I am hoping to add around 5 new PBN links. Like I mentioned last update I have began to add PBN links to all pages of the site so I can slowly start to rank all of the pages of the site.
Since I have slowly dripped my PBN links to my site the last three months it makes the site look a lot more authentic and natural in Google’s eyes which is exactly what I want. It is not natural for a site(especially one that was just created) to get an influx of links in a short period of time. The good news is that this site is now over 6 months old and getting some traffic which means it is completely natural for it to be gaining links from other sites(My PBN).
I will continue to add new PBN links as long as the traffic and rankings continue to improve. The strength of PBN links have been weakened by Google but they are still capable of increasing rankings. I am currently doing some tests to see if I can improve the power of my PBN, I will let you know how that goes!
As you can see the rankings don’t look too good, but the good news is that there are thousands of long tail keywords in this niche and that is where most of my traffic comes from. The far left column named “MS” stands for monthly searches and you can probably notice that each keyword gets a substantial amount of searches each month. If I were to rank in the top 10 for all of these keywords my traffic would go through the roof.
My plan of attack is to keep adding links and getting traffic from longtail keywords until eventually the keywords that you see above in the picture start to rank highly in the SERPS. It might take another 6 months or a year before that happens but the potential of this site is unlimited. You will see later on the report when I get to the income but the long tail keywords are earning me a good chunk of money each month.
The image above shows the traffic since the last update until December 31st. The traffic continues to grow and it currently gets around 60-70 visitors daily. Keep in mind that this traffic is mainly from longtail keywords and if this site was able to start ranking for the keywords that I am targeting this site could easily achieve over 500 visitors a day. It doesn’t really do much to speculate like that but I just want to put in perspective the potential this site has, I just have to stick with it and continue to grow it.
The chart above shows the pageviews of the site since September. I only show the top 3 pages of the site because those are mainly the three pages that I have pointed all of my PBN links at. The other pages don’t have nearly the amount of pageviews that these three do so I just left them out. One thing that I do want to point out is the average time on page. You can see that people are spending a good amount of time on each page and Google loves to see this. This makes my site look useful and helpful since the visitor is staying on each page for so long.
I have to credit this to my writer that I have for my site. He is an expert in this niche and knows what he is talking about, and not to mention a great writer. The articles might seem a little expensive at first but it will payoff in the long run.
The earnings section of this report is where you are going to see the greatest improvement since last update. In the last niche site update my total earnings for the site was around $55. Now let’s take a look at how it did since then.
Earnings Since Inception
You can click on the picture above to get a bigger view of it if you would like. The earnings for this site have improved immensely and in November earned $343! I am extremely happy about these results and I want you to keep in mind that these earnings are with only around 60 visitors a day, just imagine if there were 500 visitors a day? The earnings would be astronomical!
The amount of click throughs have increases each month as well as the number of sales in each month. Those are two important stats that keep going up. Another thing to note is the average sale amount, in November it was over $300! On average it is around $160 but even that that is still impressive. In total this site has earned $753.64 since the beginning of the site. It is a good start but there is plenty more to come.
Domain – $95
Hosting – $45
Six 1500 word articles – $200
Pillow Links – $175
Facebook Likes – $5
Total Spent – $520
Total Earned – $753.64
Total Gain/Loss – $233.64
I have gone from in the red to in the black in terms of spendings and earnings for this site which is awesome. This is mainly because of the last two months where this site has brought in a good chunk of change. The site is officially in profit but I think that this site is a long ways away from its true earning potential. I will keep adding PBN links and articles as I see fit in hopes that it will keep growing the site. I am very excited to see what the new year brings for this site.
One last thing before I end this article, I am sorry that I have been absent from this site for the last three months but I have been very busy with school. I will make sure to keep this site updated and I am planning on putting out some great content this year that I am pretty excited about. I hope that you all stick around and follow as I navigate the online seas. Thanks for reading everyone 🙂
