kombucha tea march192021 min

A bottle and a glass of Kombucha with a label beside a whole lemon and lemon slices.

During the last two months, I’ve come throughout two drinks that blow my thoughts.

No, it’s not the Moscow Mule or Outdated Trend.


It’s tea and kombucha.

Particularly DAVIDs Tea and any kombucha.

For years I’ve drunk some generic tea. The sort that comes 40 or 80 tea luggage in a field.

I preferred it positive.

Till my spouse purchased some DAVIDs Tea, particularly peaches n’ cream and cream of earl gray.


I’ve seen the title DAVIDs Tea right here and there. I thought nothing of the model apart from “how on earth does a retailer promoting simply tea survive?”


Now I know.

I’m not an enormous tea drinker, however I love these things.

It’s looseleaf so that you want some form of tea strainer.

It’s not the most cost effective tea however it’s inexpensive than booze.

After which there’s kombucha which is a few type of tea as properly.

It’s extra satisfying than soda. It’s extremely satisfying and apparently gives some well being advantages.

I’m hooked.

Earlier than I tried it I thought it was some well being nut beverage. I wasn’t .

Then somebody gave me a bottle as a present.

I was well mannered. I cracked it open.

I now have a minimum of one a day.


It’s wonderful what’s on the market.

I far too usually have preconceived concepts about stuff akin to:

  • Kombucha is for well being nuts.
  • All tea is similar.

Now I know higher.

This DAVIDs Tea and kombucha expertise jogs my memory of how I began utilizing AdSense to make cash.

For years I thought-about AdSense (show advertisements usually) backside of the barrel monetization… a waste of time.

Was I ever improper.

I’ve instructed lots of you the next earlier than. My affiliate web site earned nothing regardless of having 500 guests per day. I was annoyed. Simply to get a couple of bucks rolling in I slapped AdSense on them. The following day I had earned over $100 with AdSense (thanks partly to a FB put up going a bit viral).

The purpose is that AdSense was the ticket to being profitable.

And I know a few of you’ve got heard this story earlier than however I repeat for the good thing about new readers.

Simply the opposite day a brand new reader emailed me and instructed me how she had no concept that show advertisements may make a lot cash.

There you go. It’s not frequent information but.

What else did I assume that was an enormous mistake on my half?

Infinite scroll is dangerous: For years I was instructed it was dangerous for search engine optimization and advert income. WRONG. It’s positive for search engine optimization, positive for advert income and wonderful for on web site metrics akin to time on web site.

The cash is within the listing: WRONG. The cash is within the listing for SOME niches, however not all. In truth, there’s little cash in lots of niches.

Excessive KW search quantity: there’s no level in publishing content material focusing on KWs with lower than 1,000 month-to-month searches (or extra). WRONG. I’ve gone after KWs with ridiculously low reported search quantity and it scoops up visitors.

You should spend money on a customized web site design: WRONG. Waste of cash until you’re rolling in dough. Each web site I personal makes use of themes as-is. I extremely doubt spending $10K on a customized design would lead to me doing any higher. Sure, as soon as upon a time I spent 1000’s on a customized brand, enterprise card and web site. That web site never made a nickel.

You need to construct hyperlinks: WRONG. You possibly can construct hyperlinks and it may assist. Nevertheless, with the correct key phrases and endurance plus peppering in some linkable property, you don’t have to construct hyperlinks.

Should you give a supply hyperlink, you should use any picture on the Net that you really want. WRONG. That’s picture copyright infringement. You may get sued. Get permission in writing and/or license photographs.

Key phrases don’t matter – Google will determine it out. WRONG. Whereas I go for low search quantity key phrases, they do get searched. There’s an enormous distinction between that and never searched in any respect. Should you title your put up “I never knew” (the topic for this electronic mail), you’ll get no search visitors. Google is nice however you gotta give it a little bit nudge.

There are in all probability extra assumptions I fell for through the years, however you get the purpose.

Don’t assume.

Take a look at.

However when one thing begins working, maintain at it.
