At the end of April 2013 I achieved the milestone of 100,000 (100K) overall page views after 7 months with 52 featured hubs and also reached $150+ in April compared to below $100 in March. Very satisfied with performance and rewards.
Well done nifty! That's a great achievement.
I keep going on about why keyword research is a fundamental skill for success with online content. This is why!!!
Maybe those who read about your success will be inclined to listen lol
I still hate keyword research! But there are other ways to make Google give you traffic ideas... Google suggest anyone? Then again I usually plug it into the keyword tool before writing anything anyway...
It can be tiresome, but I love it when I find something with loads of traffic and/or plenty of income potential and rubbish competition
And yep, there are a tonne of ways to get keyword ideas!
Google's related searches
Competitors (other sites)
...to name a few.
I usually do a double check in the keyword tool too.
Well done! That is truly inspirational. I actually got my first payout for Google AdSense this month. Whoo hoo!
I had a quick look at some of your hubs and I think you may be overdoing it a little with the keywords. Yes, the research is important to find phrases that get good search traffic, but If you want to panda proof your content you might consider toning it down a bit? In my experience it's just not worth the risk of going overboard.
These are my thoughts should you chose to read them
There's no need to have your exact title in the text of the hub. It reads funny and could well put readers off (causing lots of "back button clicks" which you really don't want). Nowadays, it's enough to have a strong title which contains your main phrases/s and plenty of related phrases in the text body & subheadings. We don't do the kind of onpage optimization that was popular a few years ago anymore. A more subtle approach works just as well.
Using the same phrase e.g. "home remedies", in lots of the page titles in your subdomain could get you panda'd. This could well be seen, from an algorithmic point of view, as an attempt to over-optimize, which is exactly one of the main things that Panda penalises.
Congrats on that!
That's good traffic etc and clearly popular subjects like Pimples, Bed Bugs, Head Lice and Facial Hair are constantly streaming... so you deserve the rewards!
Props on the achievement, mcxniftycalls! It's no small feat to get to that level of views and earnings. I hope you'll do something fun to celebrate!
Thanks Simone and everyone to join me. I didn't publish a single hub in March and April but traffic is still increasing and its really fun to see that. One hour of keyword research, analysis and writing original content really pay the rewards ...
Congratulations on this milestone. It's an inspiration to others.
That's awesome, congrats! if you have any tips for others, please feel free to share!
Hi Mcxnifty, whaaaaaa . . . woohoo . . . . I'm always glad to hear about your progress. Your enthusiasm is a great motivator. I look forward to my first payout this month. Congratulations to you!
Congratulations, I'm going to have to visit some of your Hubs to see if I am capable of improving my own. I've been on here for 6 or 7 months and I'm only about to reach 47,000 so good on you for doing so well. My goal for now is to shoot for $50 a month but am still pretty far from that so I'm off to sift your content.
I don't find keyword research as exhausting since they had eliminated tags from Hubs. But, perhaps that's what separates you from others (Investing that much time into keyword research). Which really stresses the importance of knowing the search engines.
Okay, while visiting your profile the first thing I noticed was that you take Long Tail Keywords to a new level. Next, you have created yourself a niche in a specific category creating many backlinks. When reading your articles I noticed that you utilize many text capsules and emphasize keywords periodically throughout your article.
You've put in a lot of hard work into your content for which I applaud you.
That may very well be but everyone should be cautious. His hubs are obviously not grammatically correct. I take it English is not his first language. I give him credit for good titles but who wants to work so hard to make sense of the words. I'm surprised they haven't all been flagged.
This is inspirational. One day I may be in your status.
Perseverance is very important. I am proud of your success as a fellow hubber here. How many keyword do you actually include in very hub?
