Income Report for September 2021 (8 Niche Sites)

What did I do in September?

I crammed up September with work as I normally do.  Each month is similar in some ways but in addition totally different in that I usually begin or execute totally different tasks.  September was no exception.

NEW: Weblog Blitz Construct – Web site 12

On September 2, 2021, I launched a brand new experimental web site on a freshly registered area that’s a content material blitz construct.  I discovered a content material supplier who will present and add content material at $.01 per phrase (I received’t reveal the content material supplier till I’m glad the content material is working and pulling in respectable visitors which is able to take a couple of months at a minimal).

The rationale I used to be capable of get such a very good deal is I paid for 3 million phrases just about suddenly in September totaling $31,000 which explains the pretty excessive content material price for September.  Initially, I used to be going to do a million phrases at $.012 however the service supplied me a deal on the subsequent two million phrases and I took them up on it.  With a big order like this, the content material supplier was capable of put money into and assemble a group of writers devoted to this web site.

The objective is to get all 3 million phrases printed by finish of 12 months.  I’m undecided the service will obtain that however even when they get shut, that shall be fairly a feat.  The purpose right here is to see how briskly progress is when a brand new web site is bombarded with an absolute ton of content material shortly.  I’m curious to look at the visitors trajectory over the subsequent 12 to 18 months… assuming there’s a trajectory.

Whereas it’s a variety of content material suddenly, the standard is decrease than I sometimes publish.  That’s okay… it’s in a distinct segment that’s fairly simple to publish articles and there are actually a whole lot of 1000’s of lengthy tails to go after.  By decrease, I don’t imply to say it’s gibberish or rubbish.  It’s respectable, simply doesn’t go that additional mile with respect to prose and depth of analysis.

This new web site shall be web site 12 in these studies.  As you’ll see under it earned nothing in September.  Nonetheless, as of immediately, it already has 370 printed weblog posts and it’s already getting visitors (10 to fifteen guests per day).

Content Blitz Build Content Count

Site visitors carry off…

Traffic Lift Off

Monetization: I’ll monetize with show advertisements. There aren’t many affiliate alternatives on this area of interest which is ok by me.

Will I cease at 3 million phrases?  I don’t know but. If visitors begins rising shortly, I’ll doubtless add one other couple million in early 2022.   If I try this, I’ll have invested near $50,000 which suggests the location must carry out moderately properly for me to get my cash out of it.

Fastened up Web site 3

I purchased web site 3 in 2015. It had about 22K posts, a lot of it skinny content material (film posters as in a single film poster was the complete submit) and poor submit titles.  I’ve been investing in additional content material for this web site over the previous few months and at last received round to culling over 7,450 skinny posts and enhancing submit titles on about 1,000 remaining posts. There’s nonetheless extra to be executed however I figured I’d wait to see if this effort will get any outcomes.  To this point, the location has not loved any bump in visitors which suggests thus far the week to 10 days I spent on it was wasted.  I think it would take a bit longer to return to any conclusion.

I can conclude the brand new content material is working.  Site visitors and income has grown properly over the previous few months so I’ll proceed rising it.  I don’t ever anticipate this web site to be certainly one of my higher websites however there’s no purpose it might probably’t get to $5K per 30 days in the end.  It’s a properly aged area with good web site authority so it ought to just do high quality in the long term.

Break-Out Web site of the Month (most likely the 12 months and possibly the last decade)

Web site 11 launched in April 2021 on an aged area I acquired from Odys.  This web site is rising quicker than any web site I’ve ever launched.  Income for August was $193 and jumped to $530 in September. I’m already well past $530 for October.  Site visitors is closing in on 2,000 guests per day with 2.8 web page views per customer.  Verify it:
