Breaking the Shackles of a Lifetime of Bummery

Do you all have a baseline minimum of what you expect a piece of content to earn each month (directly or indirectly) for it to be worth your while?
Not really, but I'd say it should earn itself back in 12 months imo, that's considering either time spent writing or outsourcing cost.Do you all have a baseline minimum of what you expect a piece of content to earn each month (directly or indirectly) for it to be worth your while?
It all depends on searcher intent. The search "conservative treehouse" is navigational - people just want to visit that website.Is it worth going after brand-name website keywords?
Let me give you an example.
In politics, there's a site called Conservative Treehouse. According to ahrefs, their brand name gets almost 200,000 monthly searches -- not too shabby. The competition score is very low (single digits). There are dozens of similar sites with low competition and xx,xxx and xxx,xxx monthly searches.
Are these keywords worth going after, or does the presumed searcher intent and SERP-hogging sitelinks devalue them to the point they're not worth it?
I would say that kitchen accessories is a broad niche, since you can write about a lot of things: knives, toasters, ovens, forks, plates, mixers, blenders etc.What do you consider a broad niche? For example kitchen accessories is considered an broad niche or is too specific?
It's broad enough, but I would go even wider and make the domain about cooking/kitchen in general, and then start from a sub-niche like ovens.What do you consider a broad niche? For example kitchen accessories is considered an broad niche or is too specific?
Check out keywords everywhere browser addon, it gives you exact volume info like the old KW Planner did. I like using it together with keyword shitter, but also works with the current keyword planner.any tool like the old Google keyword planner?
What's nice about this too is you can seed comments on each post that create a culture of high quality, so the upcoming real commenters end up following suit because they'll want to bait a reply from you as the author.I deactivated the URL field in the comments form and am only getting legit comments now. I publish them because it creates additional content on the page (+freshness?) and adds legitimacy (IMO). In addition, if you - as the author of the article - provide relevant replies, it reinforces your expertise. However, it also means that you need to dedicate some time to the replies and follow-ups - unanswered comments do not look good.
Ahref's has a broken link checker and you can let them deal with the memory issues and all that.Is anyone familiar with a (open source would be nice) light weight crawler that can find external 404s and doesn't run into memory problems on large sites?
Something that can be scripted and just let run.
That's on the cheap end too. All the free ones are just crippled versions of premium ones that won't give you access to the results. The problem is that they have to do everything you described as being a pain in the butt easily for you while also replicating everything Google Optimize is doing while restricting it down to Wordpress and displaying results, and on and on. The "real" services cost more and can even ask you to point your DNS at their servers while running tests. It's a complicated thing to split test, and even more so when you think about how wild this question can become just on changing button colors - what goal do I want to track and is that possible to do automatically?I am checking the options in regards to plugins, and they all cost like 40 bucks a month.
Does a bear take a dump in the woods and wipe his butt with a little fluffy white bunny rabbit? The original hustlers and ballers of affiliate marketing do and did only paid traffic. That's all Charles Ngo does still. Direct to landers, to flogs that link to landers, from Facebook and Outbrain to Plenty of Fish and any where else you can optimize a campaign.Is affiliate marketing possible with paid traffic and alternate forms of marketing? Or are affiliate websites a bad business model?
How long is a piece of string? People are becoming millionaires with affiliate marketing, SaaS creation, eCommerce stores, even Adsense sites. They all work. You're thinking about this absolutely backwards. "Which method gets me to the most money?" You need to be thinking about "What vertical am I going to work in, how am I going to provide value to attract customers, and how am I extracting money from them?" Answering that will tell you what model of business to build. If you're trying to start with the model, you're pissing into the wind and don't even realized why you're getting wet.For example: is ecommerce the smarter option? Are SaaS businesses better (recurring revenue)?
It has two R's on the end of it's name. Ask higher quality questions. What exactly do you want to ask? These broad, general questions are worthless. Get specific and you'll get great answers.Though I was wondering what are Buso members opinion on fiverr?
