The surge in traffic was just a spike. Turns out google ranked me 1st then 2nd and now threw me off the first page. Google dance, what can I say. This can be entertaining if it starts chiming again.


How long are your posts?
Aiming for 1k words per article in general (PAAs). For 0 comp, much less.
In one day?
Yes. After getting approved to adsense it caught the tail end of the traffic spike and milked 1 glorious dollar from that little biatch.

Thanks! You encouraged me to build another site (in English) and your side projects gave me the appetite.
Happy to hear that since I can imagine the "progress" of some of my side projects can be rather demotivating for readers.
BTW, the first dollar is always sweet. Enjoy it, spend it well :D, and keep working.

I must learn more from you when it comes to monetization, because you are the guy who can turn little traffic to big cash :)

Added one more article and 2 more got indexed. Nothing new traffic-wise, 1-2 users per day. I might try some interlinking plugins, up until now I did it manually.

Don't butter me up too much, let's see if I can replicate first, otherwise it's just serendipity.
Good luck with your new journey.
Thanks man. How have you been? Still doing translation site?
now you just need to scale it and add much more content
Nah man, I'll go slow. One by one, high quality until I hit gold.

Google autocomplete mostly, sometimes keywordtool.io

For paa, I made a script that scrapes and creates articles, but I realized it's better to just do it manually on Google. I can select quicker which questions have potential and their order in the article.

Just finished writing a 2.2K words article. Feels good.

I haven't done much interlinking, actually only a few articles are manually interlinked so I set up a plugin (YARPP). This will speed up the indexing and future ranking.

My first goal for this journey is to publish 100 articles. I have 70 more to go. Timeline: less than 2 months. So aiming for more than 1 article per day.

I have a bunch of articles already thought out in my head which are related and easy to write down fast. Today I'll start with the titles and headings, throw in some PAAs and tomorrow I'll grind out the bulk of the content.

Are you just copy pasting paa snippets from google or rewrite/rephrase them? Are you adding images?

Can you send me a url of a certain PAA on Google so I know how they will be structured?
