Authority Website Update #7

authority site update
Written by Benjamin

Well my website’s making money now! YEAH GO ME!

Only took nearly 1 year. To be fair, I spent nearly zero time on this site. But that’s changing now. I have a writer and link strategy in place for it now. So I don’t really need to work on it much.

How much did my site make in November?


Yeah, not a lot. But that’s not what matters. I just started ranking in the top 10 for some decent keywords.

So this is how much I’ve made in December so far (13 days in at the time of writing)


At this rate, the site should make $700 – $1000 this December.

There’s a few things I should mention.

  1. November/ December are the worst months possible for my niche.
  2. If nothing changes, I should be making 2-3 times more this January – March.

But things are going to change. I’ll continue to keep ranking for more and more keywords, and more of my keywords will move from page 2 to 1.

Semrush Data



You can see a big spike in traffic at the beginning of November. That’s when a bunch of my keyword start moving to the front page.

Google analytics


I don’t get a lot of traffic yet, as you can see. But the traffic is crazy expensive.

Some of my keywords


Plans for the future

  1. Keep pumping out more content
  2. Keep building links

Hoping to hit $5,000+ a month by March, then selling the site most likely.

What have you guys been up to?


About the author


Welcome to Boredmarketer. My's name's Benjamin.

I have around 9 years of search experience and nearly 7 years of PPC experience.

Love Facebook ads and Adwords. Paid traffic = ROCKS.


Even though I'm anti-seo as can be, I still do SEO daily. I enjoy creating sites, and I enjoy ranking sites in the most competitive niches possible.

I made this blog so I can share what I find, and to connect with other marketers out there.

Since there's still so much I don't know, especially when it comes to paid advertising.

For SEO I got you covered :)


    • Hey Erik, lot of it was PBN. Build out another 10 PBN’s. Also a few press releases + social links. Think another 20-30 or so links I could be ranking for a few of the 50k+ monthly search keywords. Which would be freaking awesome money.

      I still have a ton of keywords in position 11-20 that are close to moving to the front page. So currently just trying to push them to page 1.

      • Nice! Can I ask who you use for your press releases? That game seems to be a big hit or miss for me.

        For your keywords in positions 11-20.. do you try to target each of those posts individually with link attention to move them? Or do you find you can kind of shuffle the pile with more homepage links? I’ve got a boat load in that range too that seem stubborn.

        Thanks again for the post and insight!

        • Currently haven’t given them much attention. But planning on sending a few PBN links to them + some press releases.

          What I like to do is interlink my site. If I see a keyword in position #11 with potential I link to it from my more powerful pages + new pages I build out. You can’t overdo it. But it helps for sure.I’ll email you a link to my press release guy. I use a few different providers. Generally I just use them to help diversify my anchor text, don’t expect too much from them.

          • Noted on the interlinking, I’ve seen amazing results from this on larger client sites, but not so much on my dinky personal sites.. maybe just not enough juice for them to make much of an impact yet. I’ll keep trying.

            Cheers on the PR! I’ll keep my eyes peeled.
