Been a while since I’ve written an update!
I’ve made some progress since last time, but nowhere near as much as I would have hoped.
Here’s what I’ve done since last time:
- Wrote about 4,000 words (3 articles)
- Did some blog commenting, had 1 guest post done and 1 big press release which is in progress right now.
I’ve done much less than I wanted to. I should have written at least 15,000 words of content and spent some money and time getting backlinks.
Why I’ve done so little
- Really busy with client work
- Working on other sites
- Working on my Private Blog Network ( Started selling links to people on my PBN list)
- Wasting time coming up with excuses
Honestly my excuses are pretty bad, and I feel bad for them. I don’t see myself having too much time in the near feature either. So I’m probably going to start outsourcing content and lot more backlinking.
Having a hard time finding white hat link builders though… Since majority of people I know are blackhat/ greyhat.
Impressions are up since my last update, which is pretty good. I’m averaging around 100 impressions a day now, but not getting any clicks for it.
The total queries for the past 28 days has been 112, compared to the 65 last month.
I’ve started tracking the SERPS for some of my keywords. Right now I’m working on the keyword with 1900 monthly searches.
I’ve made $6 so far this month…. Which sucks bad. I made more money last month! Not good.
Well, as you can see this is not progressing as well as I would have hoped. I’m really tempted to slam a bunch of PBN links to my site. It’s really hard to fight the urge not to, especially since other site I’m working on are completely outranking and out earning this authority site I’m making.
It’s really annoying watch my blackhat websites rank so easily and so quickly, while I spend almost no time on them. I feel your pain white hat SEO’s.
I really need to start outsourcing more, but finding good service providers is a pain in the ass and I don’t have enough time to train a VA right now.
What have you guy’s been up to? I know a few of you have started your own site; it would be interesting to see how your progressing. Hopefully better than me.
