Yesterday I wrote about how I installed the word count plugin at my creditcard wordpress site. The thing is; it is highly motivating me to write. I discovered that the site had only 7000 words of content on it which is really, really low.
3000 words of new content
Today I wrote 3000 words of new content for the site. The average word count for blog posts was 270 words per post. This is way to low and not good for the search engines. Ofcourse quality is important too, but 270 words in one post is just not enough to get good rankings. The 3000 words of new content are divided into 4 new posts, which comes out to an average of 750 words per post. That makes a total of over 10.000 words on the creditcard site.
While browsing a webmaster marketplace I stumbled upon a nice little website about an airport. The site is made in WordPress and is getting around 1,200 unique visitors monthly. Last month it generated €15,- on Google AdSense. The sale was set up as an auction and I bought it at €255,-. It’s kind of a gamble as the seller just got 1 month of Google AdSense statistics. I will keep you updated on how this will work out.
