Niche Site Project One Month Thirteen

This month has been busy with life, family, and work while the focus moved to try and maintain 1-2 posts per day to keep momentum carrying forward as summer means family and vacations.

This site topic still allows for near-effortless content creation at this point so maintaining the pace and getting myself a gigantic site is still the goal and I hope to push towards a $1000 month soon as I have broke $500 two months in a row.

Content Production For NSP1 In June 2023

I have really focused on ensuring I cover topics in depth and detail but have had to slow down the overall content speed to maintain a real-life and work balance.

As such I was able to create 56 posts this month at a total of 170k words, I do feel to some point content volume and consistency matter much more than we want to give it credit for, especially on a fresh site.

This doesn’t mean producing a post an hour daily or being crazy but publishing like a new site would with one a day, then two, and as they grow they can produce more each day and currently I am between 1-3 each day.

My push for July is to focus on using Koala to generate “best” content and “review” content to grow the affiliate income I really have a hard time creating this content as it is mentally boring and not helpful.

Income For NSP1 In June 2023

The income this month was more level than last month as I grew a bit but only like $30 more ad revenue versus May. Overall June income came in at $482.79 which with the Amazon return I state below pushed me just under the $500 mark.

While not what you care to see there are always plateaus and pushing through the plateau is what separates the almost haves from the big-time bloggers.

Analytics For NSP1 In June 2023

For the first time in a long time, I didn’t end up with a near 100% growth in the month, but with numbers growing so fast and furious I was waiting for one of these months to hit.

I honestly am very happy though with June’s 17% growth and I am laying the groundwork to push hard and fast to reach that 50k sessions/users mark and onto greater numbers!

With the end of Universal Analytics the next months and moving forward will contain GA4 data which looks like below currently until I learn how to make more useful reports to portray data.

Google Search Console For NSP1 In June 2023

As with analytics side the overall Google search impact was hit around the 21st a bit and I am working to keep growing content, building internal linking, and building value within the site.

Keyword Performance For NSP1 In June 2023

SerpRobot, which I used to use, continued to raise costs while lowering the overall search volume of keywords you could search for, so, for now, I have decided to sunset that application.

I have moved into using Google Search Console, NicheIQ, and PageBooster with less worry about individual page rankings.

Leaning into NicheIQ and PageBooster has helped me see whats been ranked and found valuable by Google, now I am adding more content that NicheIQ suggested with high volume as well as locking down the posts that provide quality search volume.

As you can see below I am doing well as most of the content is stable or trending up with a loss in only a few things which I am evaluating versus others in the same keyword area to see what I need to clean up or look to add.

As a important note, content need to have at least 100 pageviews in the period to be tracked so making sure your content gets views is vital to using this tool effectively.

Amazon Performance For NSP1 In June 2023

While Amazon looks pretty sad with only a net $10.25 this doesn’t show a huge return from last month which was a gigantic -$38.84 which basically consumed all the site earned in affiliate commissions this month.

Without that return, this month would have been a very healthy $49 which is still lower than I prefer but I am working to build even more affiliate-related content to grow the income.

I do feel that the choice to use Lasso will help boost the overall affiliate income once I can get some conversions on the non-Amazon offers I have begun adding to the content as well as into buying-focused content.

Ezoic Performance For NSP1 In June 2023

As the traffic continues to explode the income grows right alongside, the performance on Ezoic is outstanding with a consistent $20 EPMV, and with growing traffic, this means if I can grow to 50k-100k page views, I may be able to reach levels around $30-40 EPMV easily, which is exciting.

What’s interesting is around June 21st the noise started about possible algorithm blips with spikes across many different tools suggesting SERP volatility.

Since I had a similar look and its continued since then I assume it was a minor and not a major change and just maintaining the course to grow back.

When signing up for premium choose to have costs be paid from the Ezoic earnings as this allows you to not worry about the cost and card issues many faced.

Ezoic Video Results For NSP1 In June 2023

The income growth for me since focusing on video for the last month is pretty impressive as it has nearly doubled since I began halfway through last month, I used to average a paltry $10 or so monthly but since focusing starting last month I have now begun to average $40+.

This will only continue to grow as I take time to make videos for my content, either from regular video or from Flickify which is an amazing AI tool to convert your posts into video consumable content!
