So awesome Dylan, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Hey Dylan!
I just came across your profile via one of your blogs. Just wanted to follow you and get to learn more through your progress! Also cool to know that you're from NY. I lived in NYC for a year :).
Wish you the best of success as well!

Hey Dylan,

Comments didn't really work with my old theme, so I had to switch to another one. What do you think of the current theme?
https://digitalworldbeauty.com/the-best-cameras-meet-10-eisa-award-winners

I am pretty picky with themes. I liked Omega, b/c there was a lot of white space and it looked clean.

Would appreciate your feedback!

That looks great! I think visitors will like the layout and want to read more when they get to it.

Thanks for your honest feedback man, I am so picky with themes, but can't spend the whole day (or more) on the search of the "perfect theme" of course!

Haha I understand. At the end of the day your content is most important. I personally use Hestia. It's free. If you check it out make sure you disable all the front page options when you go to customize and your posts will show up on page one.

Now I have another issue... no matter what I do every word is capitalized in the comments (see screenshot). Seriously, it looks SO horrible

Haha in my opinion that stuff doesn't really matter much. Little stuff drives me crazy too, trust me. I don't think it looks bad though.

I personally don't think it looks that bad but I don't think the comments matter too much.

I only have 4 comments on my website and they're real comments - not from WA

I see, well, a lot of people did point out the importance of comments - as it shows engagement and is extra content. Here is just one to mention: Colton was making good money with Amazon too (he deleted some of his old posts with the screenshots of his earnings).

P.S. Had to do some research on coding, so found a way to fix that comment issue lol.

For now I will be asking some comments and then I will see how it plays out for me. Now, here is the news: Those weren't camera orders, but still Yay :)

That really looks good, I went ahead and checked it out cause besides my hobby as painting always good to have a camera to take picture of what I want to paint. Some cameras don't work as good.

Hey Dylan,

Here is the result of your motivational posts haha
https://digitalworldbeauty.com/the-best-cameras-meet-10-eisa-award-winners

Although it seems I am having some comments issue, but I am trying to figure it out with SiteSupport.

What do you think? The post is 4,000 words and it involves 10 products. I removed the year in the url too - when do you suggest I should change the year to 2018, to start ranking for that keyword?
Reply
dylanrieger Premium
The content looks great and you did an awesome job. Like really amazing.

My only suggestions would be to be choose keywords that are a little more narrow. Instead of one big general best camera post I would do a post for each category you mentioned. Best dlsr camera, best instant camera, best photo and video camera.

Check out this website and he see how much content he gets from cameras alone:

https://www.switchbacktravel.com/digital-camera-reviews

This websites makes millions too.

As far as the year you should be fine because you have both 2017 and 2018. Maybe just delete the 2017 when the year changes over.

Also, next year when it's almost 2019, you should add maybe one or two cameras and then change it to 2019. It should rank for that too.

Hope this helps!

Hey Dylan,

Thanks for getting back to me and for your words of support!

That's exactly what I planned to do actually, focus on narrower camera categories - decided to start off with the general top 10 and then will interlink around. Do you think I should already add 2018 in those posts since my site is new and it's gonna take some time for them to "brew"?

As for the current first post, when 2019 is around, I will add a smartphone camera that won the same award along regular cameras just to update it.

Unfortunately, so many times I tried to open the switch back travel on Safari and Chrome, but it just doesn't open for me - don't know what to do.

I have another question - I saw one of the sites that you shared somewhere and it said that it's good to have short nice url - and here Kyle said it's OK to have long urls. What exactly you do with that?

Cheers,
Zarina

Alright cool.. If you keep hammering away with content like that one you'll be good. Really good. Plus that niche has some serious potential.

Maybe try looking for switchback through Google. I honestly think your content quality is as good or better anyway.

And as far as url goes I like to just put my url as they keyword I'm targeting. So if you do best dlsr cameras 2018 I would put my url as best dlsr cameras and put the title with the year or put the title as something like the absolute 15 best dlsr cameras 2018. Whatever you want really but I would keep the url as your targeted keyword.

If you keep at this you'll be shocked the type traffic and sales you get. For me, it literally went month 4 making $112 to month 5 making $1350 to month 6 making $2350. Somewhere in the 5th or 6th month Goggle starts to really trust your website and all you content jumps from page 3 and 4 to page 1.

Oh, and make sure to put an Amazon disclosure in the sidebar or footer. Amazon could shut down your account if you don't have one. This article explains how to do it: https://snapcreativity.com/amazons-affiliate-disclosure-policy/

I am shocked I didn't do anything tech like before - I mean I have interest in them and I can't say I am a huge expert but I like learning, I am ok with doing extensive research and man there is huge potential in laptops, cameras, phones etc.

I was just worried that those are super competitive niches - but I guess I just need to try to have lower competition keywords? But see those narrower categories of cameras that you mentioned in your first answer are also pretty competitive too I believe.

My hope is that with super long posts, the year in them and the comments (which also is content and engagement), I get to top 1 page despite those big websites.

So you think that having url like this is OK? https://digitalworldbeauty.com/the-best-cameras-meet-10-eisa-award-winners
So, the main keyword + extra that I used in the title to make it catchy. As you suggested, I kept the year off the url.

As for Amazon policy, I did include an Affiliate disclosure page - https://digitalworldbeauty.com/affiliate-disclosure - which is on sidebar under "Important Pages".

I was shocked to see your numbers too!! That's why I was like WOW I am so totally changing the strategy and doing those best of lists + year. I just wish I met you earlier here at WA lol. REALLY looking forward to having success with this new website!

Also, do you mind sharing you website? Would love to have a sneak peak if you are ok with this.

The last six months I've focused on winter keywords too. When December rolls around I'm expecting a lot of traffic.

For the url I read from a really good source that google treats the first 5 words of url as the most important. So what ever you do keep your keyword in the front.

In terms of finding keywords just go to the Best Buy website - they literally categorize everything into keywords and you can see them if you hit the products tab on the homepage! Same with Amazon. That's how I get my keywords. Best Buy has I think 20 different categories for cameras and camcorders alone from memory cards to drone cameras and more.

The tech niche is wide enough where you could literally find hundreds of best of lists.

And I actually found that Brent guy's website too just from researching websites if you want to look at it: https://elitegamingcomputers.com/

Don't worry about how competitive the niche is either. Just find specific keywords and best of lists and you'll be fine. I'm in a competitive niche and beat websites that have been around for 10 years and get millions of people a month for traffic.

Keywords just for cameras (which I got from looking at the Best Buy website:

Best digital slr camera
best mirrorless camera
best camera lenses
best point and shoot cameras
best instant print cameras
best action camcorders
best 360 degree camcorders
best lens filters
best camera batteries
best camera flashes

and on and on and on. You'll get first page ranking with the year in it and in times you may even get page one ranking without the year in it too. Just keep up the same level of quality as that first post.

Holy moly, Best Buy DOES have it so nicely organized! Thanks a lot for this tip !!!

Also, when you do keyword research, whats your hmmm criteria for # of searches vs competition number? (using WA keyword tool or jaaxy)

For example, I just did jaaxy research "best cameras under 2000" it shows 24 searches and QSR of 5. Does this mean it's a bad one? And note, it doesn't even have a year in it. With the year it's less than 10 searches.

Any large retail website nicely organizing everything. You can usually find all the products on Amazon too.

I write any best of list that gets any traffic with the year in it. I'll also write a keyword without the year (for example a best of post targeted for kids or men or women) if it's low competition and gets at least 50 to 75 searches a month. For the most part I stick with best of posts with the year.

You'll get more traffic than what the keyword tool says too. When you do a best of post you end up ranking for like 15 different terms. I've had keywords that were suppose to get around 100 to 200 clicks a month end up getting 2,000 clicks a month.

In terms of competition basically every best of post with the year is low competition. Unless you were trying to rank for best album 2018 or best car 2018 or something like that. You probably won't rank for that.

But you should eventually rank for all specific best of posts.

I don't usually do the "best for under a certain dollar amount" posts. You could probably write a :"best cheap cameras 2018: Cameras under $2,000"

Best cheap cameras gets 217 searches a month. best cheap digital cameras gets 144 searches. Best cheap cameras for photography gets 96 searches. Best cheap dslr cameras gets 88 searches.
