Niche Site Project One Month Twenty Two

As everything continues to recover from the issues with caching which caused massive losses and maybe not the HCU or Core Algo I begin to have a little hope as the site is now finally beginning to show some hope of kickstarting back into a growth time.

Last month I also took the hard action to cut to URLs which also include the path for breadcrumbs and to allow someone to look at more content easily on any topic or sub topic without having to navigate menus.

Versus other competition within the same category I am in overdrive

I by no means am done blogging but this does highly make me suspect the old mantra from non-SEOs of “find long-tailed keywords” and just sling at whatever seems winnable approach from Income School just isn’t viable anymore.

Instead, the newer approach is angling towards the The Authority Site System and Affiliate Lab.

Content Production For NSP1 In March 2024

This month I started creating content again (20 posts) to help finish off some categories and to provide some better end points to specific subjects. This content as the growth above shows brought in 243 pageviews this month for that new content which is nice to maybe really kickstart me forward.

My old idea was to push for Q4 with Koala to generate “best” and “review” content to grow the affiliate income. But until I really fix the ranking and traffic problems with the main site this has to be pushed back to the side, the groundwork doesn’t feel solid so it needs repair first.

Income For NSP1 In March 2024

This month’s income was finally up versus last month! Overall, March income grew to $42.96, with Amazon earnings moving up from basically dead to $28.74, meaning this site has hopefully found its floor and the only way forward is then upwards.

Analytics For NSP1 In March 2024

This month was where I finally feel like I have made it around the corner. With a solid upstroke within the algo update I am hoping that the coming months continue to regrow and get back to my previous positions!

I am still down near 90% since the last HCU, its time to re-adapt and start growing!

Google Search Console For NSP1 In March 2024

The Google Search Console numbers have been terminal after the HCU. I have no current answers for you and I am still looking at everything and trying to figure out what isn’t working or if it’s just due to multiple back-to-back Google updates.

Keyword Performance For NSP1 In March 2024

I use PeakSERP, and if you want to support small creators I suggest you do so also. This is a tool looking to add more value including spotlighting opportunities for your site and so much more to help smaller creators grow their businesses.

Ezoic NicheIQ Pagebooster Results For NSP1 In March 2024

I have been using Ezoic’s NicheIQ and PageBooster tools to help me see what Google has ranked well and found valuable and where I am taking hits to overall traffic volume. I will continue adding more content NicheIQ suggested that I should be able to rank while having high volume.

As you can see from the below, most of the content is still stable. After all the issues from the HCU to caching I feel like maybe I am hitting my actual floor and growth is what may come later 2024.

I am continuing to check out those posts and pages and specifically look at them versus the top 10 in the SERP currently to understand where I may be lacking.

Amazon Performance For NSP1 In March 2024

As I have stated before, traffic plummeting around 90% demolished all the income potential from Amazon or other affiliates and until I can get traffic moving upward again I can’t worry too much about monetization.

I was using Lasso for the non-Amazon content, but have canceled since it is a cost that can’t be paid when traffic doesn’t dictate getting that same value out of a huge monthly cost.

Ezoic Performance For NSP1 In March 2024

The performance given the HCU hit is saddening as it has only declined with each continually applied algo update. I know this niche can be highly seasonal so this one–two punch hurt more as I now can’t tell how seasonal the niche is.

Ezoic Video Results For NSP1 In March 2024

My income growth using the Humix video setup has stagnated with the loss in traffic. I have started to get some better performance this month but results are up some now to $5.62 from Video.

This will hopefully begin to grow once more as I take time to make videos for my content, either from regular video or the new and improved Flickify from Ezoic, a fantastic AI tool to convert your posts into consumable video content!
