My New PPC Dedicated Site Is Indexed By Google
Last Update: Mar 23, 2023
I created my PPC dedicated site to use in Kyle's PPC training course on March 18th. I got word on March 23, just 5 days later that it has been indexed by Google. See the screenshot of the message from Kyle & Carson below:
All members within Wealthy Affiliate who are building websites receive this message. I have too for all my earlier websites. It never gets old since this is a critical step in building ones online business.
I hope you enjoy receiving messages like this too.
Great news Edwin...I received a similar message for my PPC site the other day also.
Selecting a niche, then a domain, then building our site and adding content are all necessary, but that message that our site has been indexed is the first acknowledgement of our efforts from the "outside world".
Hope we ALL make it to Vegas!!!
This is some amazing news.
We can see that your eyes are right on the prize.
Way to go!
You got that right. Thanks for your supportive comments.
All the best to you too.
Keep the momentum going
You got it. Keeping the momentum going is key. Thanks for commenting.
All the best to you.
Indeed Edwin! I love getting similar messages in my email.
In fact, I just got the same message with my new PPC dedicated site!

Mine indexed, too. You’re right, it never gets old, Lol! 😎
Since I’m only using mine for PPC, it doesn’t even have to index to send visitors to landing pages on that domain from paid ads.
Rock On! 🤘
That’s a good point. Since our paid ads take precedent, indexing is not strictly necessary.
Wouldn’t it be a strange thing if our PPC posts got ranked organically as well as through paid ads? In those cases I wonder if a post could appear twice on page 1, as an ad as well as through SEO?
Congrats on your PPC site being indexed too.
Anything is possible, but I’d be surprised if they got ranked high enough to get any organic traffic.
You need quite a bit of published content to get decent traction.
The same URL should only appear once on the same page, so the paid ad should take precedence.
Ranking can be perplexing sometimes. I May have told you I created a website to write my story on. I referenced it in my previous blog post here.
It only has 4 posts on it. And I have not written a new one in months. The Post titles are shown below. Type them into Google or Bing and tell me what you see.
Boarding School A Harry Potter Experience
Christmastime In Calcutta In The 1950s
Growing Up Anglo Indian In Calcutta
Childhood Memories Of Calcutta
I'd love to hear your response as I have some questions to ask you based on my ranking experience.
You’ve ranked very well on page one of Google for all these articles!
I was going to do something similar and bought the domain MyItalianWorld dot com, thinking I would easily rank on page one of Google for very low competition keywords.
My concern was that traffic would also be very low.
What are your monthly page views like for that site?
BTW, I left you a comment on your Harry Potter Experience article.
You are a great storyteller! 👍😎
Thanks for letting me know you left a comment. I had to go to my dashboard and approve it. I did that and added a brief response.
Let me give you the page view results for the past 7 days and you be the judge. take into account that I have had no new posts since August 2022.
Page views 84 with a CTR of 9.5%. So not high at all.
I have a long-term monetizing strategy after I have about 100 posts. It is to use this as a travel niche with an emphasis on helping my readers explore the off-the-beaten track.
My topic spreadsheet is huge where I have grouped the topics using several categories like family, my travels, countries, education, careers, and much more. No chance of running out of topics to write about.
Eventually, I will write travel blog posts on the countries I write about. At that time I will edit related story posts with internal links to the new travel blog posts. On these, I will add affiliate links to help my readers with their travel plans if they so choose to visit these places.
I want to go further and build personal connections with people to find out what they are interested in and provide tips that could help them. I have already got responses from non-WA visitors.
This website is a fun one for me and I am not expecting it to generate significant income. I'm going to enjoy sharing stories and the picture I have taken. Sadly I didn't take many pictures until I moved to the US. Until then I will use what I can find online where I don't have to pay royalties.
I found it interesting that you also had considered creating a similar autobiographical website. Others have done this so this is a popular genre.
Glad to hear you also enjoy train rides. So does my. wife. I took my longest train ride when I emigrated to Canada. I purchased a one-month unlimited train travel pass and used it to travel coast to coast and back visiting several cities. Since funds were scarce, I stayed in Youth Hostels and the Y.
Canada gave allowed me to move there with no job. I went broke and managed to survive. That will be the topic of one of my stories.
Can I ask you for advice? Is there any merit in writing this blog chronologically? Or would it add more interest if I wrote stories that jump around the years?
Thanks for the interchange on this Frank.
I think that’s excellent traffic, considering that you only have four posts on your website and you’re not publishing consistently.
I recommend you publish a minimum of one post a month or Google will eventually start ignoring your site and and may even begin de-indexing your posts.
One article a week would be better. I only have time to write an average of one article a week (sometimes two) on my guitar site and it is doing pretty well. I have less than 160 posts and it gets about 1,000 page views a day.
I doubt I’ll ever have time to build the autobiographical site. I asked my sister if she would write the stories since she remembers them better than I do.
I offered to do all the technical stuff and give her 70% of the profits but she is way too busy having fun. 😎
I would say that if you were writing a book then a chronological narrative would be the way to go. However, with individual articles on a website and good organization with categories, etc., a random temporal order would be a fine publishing strategy.
You’re a great writer and you have lots of excellent adventures, so I think you’ll be very successful! 👍😎
Rock On 🤘
Thanks for the tip. Once I complete my India posts, with only a few left, I shall segue to something more recent. And I like the one-post-a-month approach. With the PPC project, I think that will work out fine.
I appreciate your comments about my story writing.
You Rock, Edwin! 🤘
Keep going! 😎
