Month 6 is in the books and I'm happy with the way things are going. I had over 500 sales and $2200 in commissions from Amazon in January. That came from 14,000 clicks.

I wrote a ton of content to reach these numbers (about 75 articles since August, 1500 words or more each). I focus on best of lists with the year in them. I'm excited because it just turned to 2017 so that means a whole bunch of new keywords and articles to write.

In case anyone is wondering here's what I made in previous months:

1st month (August): $1

2nd month (September): $20

3rd month (October): $60

4th month (November): $120

5th month (December): $1350

6th month (January) $2200

As you can see things just kind of took off at the 5th month mark. I really hope you take my "2017 keyword" strategy - I gurantee you won't regret it. If you want to read more about these keywords read these articles (they changed my life and how I look at seo):

I'm hoping by the summer to be up to 5k a month so we'll see if it happens!

Here's some good free training if you're interested:

Hi there. Thanks for sharing this technique. It's very interesting and I'll try it out.

I would like to know how you transition from the "Best XX 2016" list to the "Best XX 2017" list. Let's say the list is for the same product, do you create a different post with totally different product list?

Or do you scoop up some of the products in 2016 to be used in 2017 with some changes?

You're surely doing great here buddy!

Incredible story, great success. Many thanks for sharing it. I wonder how is your ranking in general.
Reply
dylanrieger Premium
You mean where I rank in Google? I go after low competition keywords so most are on page 1.. when you focus on best of lists with the year in them it's really easy to rank.
Reply
jvranjes Premium
I assume the year is typically not the part of the targeted keyword?
Reply
dylanrieger Premium
It is! Sometimes they rank without the year too. That's why they're so easy to rank because they're very low competition but they convert well.

For example, best affiliate programs and best affiliate programs 2017 have different results on page one. If you want to see if best affiliate programs 2017 will get traffic punch in best affiliate programs 2016 into the keyword research tool..It gets around 136 searches a month so you can figure it will get the same or more in 2017

I typically write more than people too, so that helps with rankings. If everyone else is doing top 10 I try to do top 15 or more. I always try to have the most products - it's good for CTR

Many thanks again. All you show in your story makes sense to me and I suspect this was missing in search results when people see my snippets on the top page in Google, they will rather click the one with the time stamp.

My statistics is great once people come to the site, but very poor in the stage before. This could be the reason.

But not many keyword appear with the year. Nevertheless, this will be my priority for sure.

You have to look for them but they're there.. in my niche there are literally hundreds.

I need to start writing more articles with high traffic keywords. Thanks for sharing and giving us hope.
Reply
dylanrieger Premium
The keywords I target aren't all that high traffic but I get them all on page 1.. you just have to learn which will rank and which won't
