Niche Site Duel: Progress Log #2

September 20, 2010 at 9:15 pm (Work) (, , )

Ooookay so I’ve been really unproductive since the last update. I went to stay with out-of-town relatives for a week, and while there was Internet access it wasn’t quite as convenient as at home, and I ended up getting distracted reading the books I’d just gotten from the library. So, a week and three books later, I’m at pretty much the same point as last time. The keyword I was ranking at #23 for I’m now at #19 for, so that’s something at least.

Over at The Keyword Academy they’re having something called “Summer Rush,” which involved setting (and meeting) a goal for number of words published over the summer. It goes through the end of September, which is 10 days away, and I’m still way behind my tiny little goal of 50,000 words. I got a late start, but it’s still no excuse, and I plan to make up the difference before the end. I’m going to ignore my Hubpages stuff for now, and focus entirely on my site for the duel. My goal is to have 15-20 total posts up on the site in the next 10 days, as well as at least one backlink article posted a day (preferably more than that written a day, but I’ll schedule the publishing dates).

So, since I don’t really have anything to report this time, instead I’ll respond to a comment on my last update wanting more information about my keyword search. Read the rest of this entry »

Niche Site Duel: Progress Log #1

September 9, 2010 at 9:12 pm (Work) (, , )

One of the blogs I follow is Smart Passive Income, and recently on that site the creator, Pat, mentioned a “niche site duel” another blogger had challenged him to. Now, I’ve been dabbling in niche sites for about a year, but have seriously lacked the motivation to really put an effort into it. But I like challenges (…sometimes), and lately I have been trying to work a lot harder on my Internet money-making endeavors because I am desperate to not have to get a “real job.” So. Seemed like perfect timing, and Pat invited others to get involved as well, so I figured I’d give it a go :D (…..Can it still be a duel if there are more than two people?)
