Good work man! I encourage you to keep going and press harder until it cracks for you.

I will tell you this, I have been hit hard by the last updates in October, but I'm not gonna let go as well. I want to go even further and start a YouTube channel for my website, to increase my expertise and increase my audience.

If you love the niche you're writing about, I encourage you, go for it, do it. It's a test of perseverance. 'Stay hard'.

Ahhhhh! Feels so good to be home and doing my thing. Cold outside, cozy inside, peace and quiet while typing a good article.

I just wrote an inspired piece of text after finding fresh and juicy keywords. It's nice to work when you haven't been working in weeks and especially since I don't have any deadlines/goals to how many posts to write.

I also played around with EAT and improved it. Shit feels way too legit already, it's like it was built by Catholic nuns and smells like soap. Damn it! I really need to get into blackhat and pillage some innocent algorithm... Maybe one day.


Last year I was very slow with writing. But with this new project I was fueled by my previous success, I think I can do it again and bigger, so why not write like crazy? Also I was inspired by Shaun Marrs, he is a true machine of content generation. The research is minimal because A: I know the niche and B: The format helps (answering questions).
Blogmen, you are definitely one of the most talented writers on BHW. I can say that just from reading your updates here. It is an enjoyable experience :).

Hope for the best for your new project. Not sure if you've seen Shaun's latest update on YT. I watched it just now, and it seems he's basically abandoning his "$1 Million sale valuation blog" project. But he sticks with blogging, maybe just coming back to the basics with his 2023 projects, abandoning the experiments with AI and other things he tried on his 2022 project which failed hard....

I think YT is a good idea to rank blog posts. I'm going to try it as well.

Woohoooo! Thanks man, you're too kind and I'm glad you enjoy it but I don't know about "one of the most talented".

I've seen his update, hopefully that project isn't dead for good. And speaking about experiments, I was going to add low quality scraped/generated posts on the support site but now I'll have to reconsider that.

You get AdSense approval so fast, do you have any trick? I've been getting disapproval for months now without them explaining what I violate only reply with "You violate our program policy" and when I tried to read what's in the link, all they wrote there is for those that already using AdSense.
Good luck on your journey

I did a few things today:

1. Wrote a new article.
2. Augmented my about page (had only 100 words).
3. Posted a few answers on Quora (I'll go back to them later and insert link).

No trick. The only thing I can think of is the traffic spike I had when I applied (good metrics) and maybe the fact that I already had approved websites on my account.

I'm writing content at the cruise speed of 3 posts per week. Super chill. In between I post on Quora.

Good news: I got a google click from a 7-day article. Sandbox is starting to crack.

I've also been busy with tiktok experiments and will start a separate journey for that.

UPDATE

Sandbox isn't cracking. I keep getting the same trickle of visitors from Quora and no Google. By now I think it's safe to assume that something is wrong and the blog was hit by one of the updates. I'll keep adding 1 post per week and will re-evaluate next month.

I also slowed down with my Tiktok journey so I freed up a lot of time. I noticed some people think blogging is dead so I decided to start a new blog just because I don't think it's dead.

NEW BLOG!!!!!!!!!!!

I found a good niche on Pinterest and to my surprise there was no blog dedicated to this. BINGO! This was a few days ago, so by now I wrote 10 articles and already started ranking. Bye bye sandbox!!! This is what I'm talking about!!!

Search Console:

Analytics:

I will continue this journey with the new blog and maybe add updates to the previous blog should things change. I'm using the same strategy for my new blog: 0 comp keywords and unanswered paas.

In what category does the new blog fall to? Are you comfortable writing content yourself for every niche you find? Good luck

I could say it falls under creativity.

I have some knowledge about this particular niche so I'm comfortable writing.

Got a lot of content ideas, plus GSC queries are already popping.

The amount of blogs being sold currently is just crazy, not to talk about people quitting blogging.

It seems everyone is either quitting blogging/selling their sites, or switching to AI blogs.

Glad to see that you are an exception to the rule and hasn't got discouraged by recent results :).
This one seems to take of super quickly, will keep my eye on it definitely!

Been following this thread for some time. What I personally liked is your energy. I'm into big niche sites, and have a huge team in place for almost every task. Downside is, I myself get involved in little to no work these days (compared to the whole process time to time). You journey is kinda transmitting some energy into lazy ass ME.

Thanks man, and good luck - you'll do great.

I appreciate it. Now get your lazy ass back to work :)
150 click a day, some people would say not bad for 6 months old blog, and not 1 week old blog
IKR !! I hope the traffic will keep growing.

UPDATE: I just made my first bucks with this blog ($10). I added a few affiliate links a week ago and it paid off.

I broke 200 clicks per day.

Did you put adsense on this new one or was it just niche related affiliate links in the odd article or two?

Ps love the journey keep at it
