This Simple Downsizing Website Makes $25,000 Per Month

Last Update: February 12, 2021

Hey everybody!

Haven't posted in a while and wanted to show you a simple affiliate site that I found that makes serious money. $25,000 PER MONTH.

The website is GoDownsize.com if you want to check it out.

What's unique is the website is monetized through affiliate links AND ad revenue.

The ad revenue makes up more than half the income and the traffic comes from Google and Pinterest.

This is a good example of a website that anyone here at Wealthy Affiliate can make.

The topic is easy enough for anyone to grasp and while the content is very good.. it can be replicated.

It just takes TIME.

This website is 7 years old and the creator grew it year by year. They just post content 5 times a week and never stopped.

They also learned over time which content ranks and which keywords to focus on.

It started as a downsizing and minimalism website and now they focus a lot on RVing.

Here's an example of keywords they target (with Jaaxy traffic and QSR) and their content with the keywords.

1) Cats and rv - 104 traffic, 30 qsr

2) Dogs and rv - 120 traffic, 70 qsr

3) Rv on social security - 40 traffic, 24 qsr

Writing these simple articles for years has paid off tremendously. Keep in mind a website that makes $25,000 per month can be sold for close to $1 million.

I like this site a lot because most posts don't even have affiliate links.

It just proves you can make money online with a website in so many different ways and you don't have to do anything spectacular.

You just need to figure out the right keywords and never give up!

Hope you found this useful!

Hello Dylan,
How can the website earn revenue on this if you didn't use an affiliate link? Because of Google AdSense? Right keywords, great articles, significant traffic to the site, and a website that makes $25,000 per month, and that's it? Of course, making 5 articles per week and 7 years old. I wonder how! But WOW! It's admirable.

Thank you so much for this post.
All the best,

Joyce

Joyce, 5 articles a week for 7 years = 1,750!

That is some amazing content right there.
The ad income alone will be huge and supplemented by a few affiliate links.

Remember also that RVs and accessories are not cheap. 😉

It uses affiliate links but it's mostly monetized through ads!

Good morning Dylan,

I hope you're doing well and business is good.

Thank you for your interesting blog post, it just shows how using the principles taught in Wealthy Affiliate and taking action really do work. I know for a fact that posting regularly, it really does make a difference.

I wonder if the website owners realised that they would be making $25,000 every month when they wrote the first blog post? Probably not! Well done to them for taking action and being consistent.

Have a great weekend.

Not 100% sure.. the guy is probably considered an expert in blogging. His name is Morten Storgaard

There are many take-aways from this website, Dylan.

The ability to be consistent and keep working on your website by building out content.

It is a simple site - no fuss and no clutter - just A LOT of content over the years.

An excellent reminder to stay true to what we are taught at WA.

Thank you.

Great Example. Nice timing with inspiration for a new site I am building.

I am curious. What tool do you use to find out how much the site makes per month?

Also do you use other Keyword Research tools along with Jaaxy when you do your websites?

Thanks

I know the owner of this site so I just knew how much it makes.. it gets about 500,000 views a month.

And I only use Jaaxy. It's a great tool and it's found me some awesome keywords.
