You can join an ezoic, much better than Adsense, maybe x 5 profile exactly like MediaVine, They used to accept sites that come with more than 40,000 visits per month, but now they accept even small sites, but if your content is of high quality and deserves . I prefer it more than MediaVine

  • What is the site's language? English?
  • Monetisation model? AdWords, display ads, tc.
  • Do you use any ad network?

I've tried Ezoic before, and I've had much better results with Mediavine, so I'll stick with Mediavine :)

Yes, the site is in English :)
No monetization at the moment since the site is new. Once the site (hopefully) grows enough, I'll put it on Mediavine so I'll monetize it via display ads. I'll also add some affiliate articles later and monetize through Amazon.
At the moment I'm not using any ad networks on the site.

Quick Update

As I've said before, this is a fresh domain, and so far, I'm thrilled with how things are going. It seems like the site has beaten the famous Google sandbox, at least for now. Things are going great so far, and I've been noticing that a lot of guest posts I've ordered have been indexed and that they're actually ranking highly well on Google.

Here's what I've been doing lately:

- Gave my writers another 120 article topics.
- Did massive keyword research -- I've found another 150 great article topics to write about
- Started training and removed sugar and bread from my diet

That's pretty much it. I've been consistent with publishing new content on my site, and I plan to continue to do so.

Until the next update, cheers!

Nothing much to update other than the fact that the organic traffic is still, slowly but surely, increasing!

- I've ordered more guest posts and told the sellers to drip-feed them throughout the next two months, so they look more natural
- Writers are sending me articles constantly. I've finally found good writers who know a lot about my niche, so they have no problem producing the content.
- Currently working with six writers, each one sends me four articles per week. (Some of them send me 7, and some 3, so let's say that the average is 4)

If you've got any questions or you'd like to say something, feel free to do so!

Just found your journey.

Looks promising and I think you're on the path to building a great site here!

Got my own journey going on, albeit much slower than your own.

I'm thinking about ordering some content for some really low competition keywords, but I'm really picky and would want the articles to look and feel as if I'd written them myself.

What's been your experience with the articles not written by yourself?

Good to see you here :)

Remember, slow is fast, and slow and steady wins the race!

I used to have the same problems as you, but then I improved my job listings. I usually ask many questions in my listings just to see how the writers will answer them. If I like their answers and their style of answering, then there's a good chance that they'll be really good writers. I think that I've interviewed more than 50 writers so far, and right now, I'm working with 6 of them, but I'll have to fire one because he began to write poorly. You never know with these writers, but remember that there are always more other writers to find on freelancing platforms!

Small update
Even though the blog is around 5 weeks old, I've still managed to get 1,000 pageviews! So, here's the first milestone!
Screenshot 2022-01-25 at 11.29.32.png

- At the moment I have 96 published articles on the site.
- My HARO outreacher is a bit too slow, so I'll try to find a new one.
- Ordered a couple more guest posts just to give the site a slight boost.
- Just received around 30 articles from my writers (they send me the articles in batches -- once per week) so now I have to set up the payments for them.

That's probably it, for now! Let's get this bread fellas

Small, but sweet update

How's going guys? Are you all alright? I hope you are.

I have a small, but sweet update I'd like to share with all of you here.

First, I've finally published 100 articles on my website.

Second, I've finally broken 100+ users in one day on my website.

I really like how things are going so far with my website, and I just hope that everything will continue going with the same tempo!

Very good progress.

100 articles in a month, that's very fast. It's surely going to skyrocket your organic traffic, especially if you also use HARO.

You have enough traffic to start monetizing and reinvesting. Are you going to wait for mediavine/adthrive until you reach tens of thousands pv per month?

Thank you!

I won't be placing ads until I get accepted to either Mediavine or Adthrive. My main website earns me an avg 7-9K euros per month so I have the needed funds to grow this website. :) But, if things change, I may think about getting the site on Ezoic just to make some $$$ for reinvesting
All the best with your journey!
Thank you!
