In case you didn’t know, I am creating an authority website in 2019 (After a long time). This is update 5. You can find all previous updates on our blog here.
So it finally happened…
It has happened so many times with me before, so I don’t really have an ‘aha moment’. I knew it was going to happen, but it still feels good.
To back-track a little, you already know (if you read the previous updates), that I ordered quite a lot of content (approx 30-35k words). I published all those articles last month and the site made it’s first $ this week.
In total, I have published about 35,000 words so far & here’s what the rankings look like now:
Sorry about blurring the keywords. I don’t want you to copy the topic of my website yet. I will definitely disclose the URL later this year.
In case if you are wondering what solution am I using for keyword tracking, that’s Serpbook. I have always used them and I think they are the best in the business. Rankings get updated every 30 minutes and they are very cheap too (With a free trial).
Anyway, I don’t care which rank tracker you use but make sure that you are using one to track everything.
Now, did I make any money off the site yet?
Of course I did.
Here’s that screenshot for you:
I made about $10.59 in last 7 days with Amazon affiliate program from the site. Amazon has been one of my major monetary methods for all my sites for a very long time and I don’t see a reason for it to be different this time either.
Now, I know $10.59 is nothing but the good news is that I am getting something back (at least) and it is only going to go up from here onward.
What’s the plan now?
Nothing really. I don’t think I will do any search engine optimization for the site till mid this year (June, 2019 perhaps). Till then, I will only be publishing articles. In fact, I have already ordered 50,000 words more from our content service. I should have those articles ready in next 2 months and I will be uploading them as they come.
Here’s what my spending look like till now:
- Domain and Hosting: $50
- Theme (You can pick anything from Themeforest that looks good): $49
- Logo: $5 (from Fiverr)
- Content from Passive Journal: $540 + $899
- An Account With Keyword Revealer (I have the lifetime deal): $79
- Serpbook for rank tracking
Here’s what my income looks like now:
$10.59 so far till Jan 28, 2019
I should also tell you that I don’t think I will be publishing another update anytime soon (unless something amazing happens). There won’t be much to talk about anyways, as it is all about publishing content and tracking their rankings from now on till mid year.
However, I will try to publish a few income reports from time to time, just to keep yourself motivated.
I will really appreciate if you can leave a comment. Thanks
