New content material service
In August 2020 I began with one more content material service. I went with this service due to the very low charges. It was a bet. I didn’t do a check article. I simply paid a few hundred bucks and positioned some orders.
The returned content material was excellent. The charges ridiculously low. I nonetheless don’t understand how they do it.

Fb continues to be driving visitors
Properly who woulda thunk? Fb continues to be driving numerous visitors to my greatest area of interest web site. Right here’s a screenshot of simply Fb visitors in October:
To start with of the month, it regarded like visitors was going to vanish however then it leveled off to round 10K visits each day which isn’t unhealthy. I’m unsure what I did to goose almost 30K each day guests on the finish of September… want I might determine that out.
In actual fact, I don’t actually know why that is taking place. If I knew what was working and methods to replicate it, I’d let you know.
All I can say is when you’ve got some FB followers to submit your stuff on FB and see if something works. FYI, I automate posting with MeetEdgar.
It’s not all revenue although. As you’ll see below bills beneath, I shelled out $1,500 USD for FB advertisements to develop the fanbase. I’m unsure that is cash effectively spent however so long as visitors is at this degree, spending $1,500/mo. is price it.
I don’t care a lot for the pagespeed rating metric however I additionally don’t need to lose visitors as a result of I’m an fool and disregard them. I’ve invested a substantial amount of cash enhancing scores and precise velocity of my largest area of interest web site. Nonetheless, I’ve ignored my smaller area of interest websites till just lately.
In an effort to enhance velocity and pagespeed scores, I’m testing Nitropack on considered one of my larger visitors smaller area of interest websites. I’m utilizing Nitropack on account of AdThrive suggesting I take advantage of it. I don’t have any strong outcomes but however the pagespeed scores can’t go any decrease. My pagespeed scores on my smaller area of interest websites are atrocious and they’re fairly easy websites. Not a number of plugins. I take advantage of Shortpixel to optimize the photographs. I take advantage of Cloudflare and Kinsta internet hosting. Go determine. Right here’s to hoping Nitropack helps.
