Rankings are picking up

One of my new niche sites gained rankings since a couple of days. What gets my attention is that the higher rankings in Google are not just from 1 or 2 keywords but from several keywords. Even keywords that I am not particularly targetting.

Check out the screen below (30 days of traffic). As you can see its going up, up, up. I am checking the numbers for today and it looks like it will not surpass 100 uniques today. It might stabalize around 100… I am not sure. But things are definitily moving.

Get more traffic

75% of the traffic is coming from Google. A good amount I guess. With this kind of traffic you are pretty sure it is targetted. The average time is over 2 minutes per visitor and bounce rate is below 5% (!).

Top Channels

The Google AdSense income from this site is also up compared with last month (obvious). Not sure yet where it will go. Will keep you guys updated!

Putting in hours

Just checked one of my servers to see what my old sites were doing apart from collecting dust. I remember starting a creditcard website in late 2014 and it still gets some traffic. It’s not much but around 800 uniques generating 1,500 pageviews. 82% of that is organic traffic (stats from last 30 days).

Fresh content

To check if this site is worth it to work on again I started to make a couple of posts in the last week. I did some research on semi popular word phrases on the google keyword tool and put up some unique posts about it. One of the posts ended up at #11 in google.nl (It’s a dutch creditcard site). That shows me it’s not that bad and i’m thinking of working on it again and putting in more hours on this website.

Started a new website

In my last post about selling another domain I mentioned I also bought another domain for €50. A generic term with an exact search volume of 22,000 monthly. I checked google and the top 10 results were all deeplinks, which shows me there is not THAT much competition. Just got a WordPress site installed on it and I will publish a new article this afternoon to get it ranked. Not sure which way to go with this site as it is in the recipe niche and I never had a site in this niche before. At least i’ll make sure I get top-notch images on it which seems important in the recipe niche.

I’ll keep you guys updated on both the creditcard site as the recipe site. Also got other plans for a new site in mind but more about that later!
