Oh God, it’s been so long since the last update that I’m embarrassed even writing one at this point.
But I must.
I could give you some excuse as to why I haven’t updated BoredMarketer or this case study in a long time, but it would just be another excuse.
What’s happened since the last update
The biggest change is that my website is no longer 100% pure white hat. I gave it about 5 PBN links from my own personal network.
Why my website isn’t white hat anymore
I don’t have as much time for white hat link building; or SEO really. I’ve been doing a lot of paid marketing lately (Facebook).
Overall my website is still about 95% clean, but if I keep adding PBN links it won’t stay that way for long.
My goal now is to slowly add some PBN links (5 – 10 a month), and keep my website as clean as possible.
The PBN links are from my own network; so the only links on it are from my own websites and a few client websites.
Webmaster tools data
The data above is from the last 28 days.
The data above is from the last 90 days. As you can see traffic is trending up, just not at the speed I would like.
Here are the keyword rankings
My main keyword (#2400 searches)
Most of my keyword rankings are up like crazy. The ranking spike for most keywords happened in late May/Jun because that’s when I posted the links on my PBN.
Goals of my site
I haven’t been working on this site at all ( The only work I’ve done the last month or two has been the PBN links).
I plan on adding more PBN links and getting some content written for the website.
I want to be in the top 10 for my major keywords by the end of August, but hopefully in the top 5.
What I’ve been up to lately
- Creating new lead Gen sites ( For clients & selling leads directly)
- Facebook advertising for clients
- Client SEO
- Selling a few PBN links once in a while
- SEO for my own websites
- Trying to learn Java (For the 24th time)
I’ve been busy! I plan on cutting something out from the list above and doing more work on BoredMarketer, since I actually enjoy doing it.
How about you?
