I have done my best to this site as a newcomer for the IM, and now this site is rushing to 10K traffic every month, hope better results will come.

Spent one month around May last year to write 30 odd articles in a travel related topic. Brand new domain. And stopped publishing after that since I wanted to wait for Covid to subside before investing more time in this.

Nothing mindblowing yet since travel in this segment is yet to pick up. But I like the growth it has garnered since. I am sure I could do a lot lot more if I publish more content which I plan to do from next month.

Okay, I suppose it's definitely nowhere near as impressive as most other posts here, but I figured I'd share it with you guys anyway.

Two months old, 40-ish posts, looking at around 15 - 20 pageviews every day. Still very early in my journey, but it's definitely nice to see.

I just checked my Google Ads account which told me I had made $20.000 this year in profit for a 3x ROI.

Certainly made me think.

Set and forget isn't only SEO.

I am just getting back in the game (been doing FBA for the past 5 years or so) but many years ago I received a single link from the WSJ (section was called quick fixes). It brought it about $30k of extra revenue of 3 months (site was making about $1000 and made of $20,000 that month after I received the link. It was the best feeling!

I started to run a small PR campaign on my website and could secure a couple of decent links from high authority sites in the 70/80/90. Not many, but a few good links.(less than10) I will share my PR experiment in a thread soon.

First nothing was happening and I was desperate. My DR was for month at 13. Now my DR jumped to 37 within a few days. I hope that the traffic and revenue will follow soon :cool:

Marketing pays off

Hello,

I just found this forum and am excited to grow my websites even more! This is one of my 3 websites that I switched to mediavine in mid-2019... looking forward to learning lots more :smile:

At the moment, the traffic is purely from social media where I have several hundred thousand followers. I have a 100k mail list as well, and I am just starting to look into growing the organic traffic (I know I'm late to the party on this). I have tried to SEO optimize the content before and it has ranked decently but I haven't seen very much traffic from it... I haven't experimented with buying backlinks etc.

I run the website by myself with one full-time writer and a few others I use from time to time. I add on average 2 new pieces of content per week but will try to expand that in the future. The revenue is purely from display advertising and the expenses are minimal so most of the earnings are profit. I want to expand my revenue streams as I feel I am missing out on lots of potential earnings if the ads alone are earning this much!

I just want to note I had smaller successes and failures in the beginning but kept trying and trying and finally made it. I stuck to the same area where I saw so many others having success and was finally able to replicate it myself. I've also had successful websites completely die and have learned to embrace failures as learning experiences.

I also want to say that I suffer from depression and ADHD which oftentimes makes it hard to work and find the motivation to improve, which I feel holds me back a lot. I often thought that once I had found success my life would magically improve and that everything would be great. However, after doing well, reaching goals, and earning a decent amount of money I realized my mental health still isn't great. So just remember, earning money is great but it doesn't solve everything!

However, I look forward to what the future will bring :smile:

After months of negotiations, due diligence, transfers, and inspection periods, I've finished liquidating a site I built from scratch. I'm going to do an AMA which will be linked here once live if you want to read the details as the thread unfolds. Not the biggest sale but money is money!

:wink: Here's my work as a completely blind entrepreneur, technology developer and disability advocate for the past 2 decades: [ pardon me in case the slideshow video looks awful, everybody's still asleep here, so didn't have anybody with eyesight to review the video after I created it using FFMPEG CLI ]

It looks like in August we will finally hit 100 posts in 1 month. 1 post should be around 24 dollars a month, so that would mean 2.400 dollar of passive income per month added :-)
