20 Months with WA: How's My Website Doing
It's been a while since I posted my last website update.
To be honest, so there's not so much time to post regular update here because I've been focusing on growing my website.
But I want to continue motivating you, whether you are a new WA members or existing ones, to follow WA lessons in order to reach your success.
Here's my current website stats:
I reached 100,000 monthly pageviews, wohooo...
One of WA members recently interview me what's the secret of reaching this level of pageview, and my answer is very simple.
Follow WA lessons, use low-hanging-fruit keywords in your post, write good quality content, repeat.
I started growing my subscribers May last year, and today my e-mail list is growing on auto-pilot.
I almost reach 3K subscribers, with 100 new subscriber joining each week (in average). If you are wondering what did I do to grow my e-mail list, feel free to read my previous blog post about offering freebies to your audience-> https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/fiftarina/blog/8-f...
To be honest, nothing change much compared to last year income. I was almost double my income when Amazon released the latest commision change. So, it sinks again, lol.
It hurts, but this opens up my mind that I should not depend on Amazon too much.
I started to try other income source, which is ads.
If you follow my website update, you may know that I got rejected by Google Adsense earlier.
But, now that my pageview has soared so high, I decided to apply to a very popular ad-network, which caters to bloggers with high pageviews.
And the result?
It's less than 2 weeks since the new ads was installed and I'm happy to report that my ads RPM has increased so much from $0.31 (with Amazon CPM Ads) to $5.61. Wohoo...
The best thing is I don't need to tweak the ads by myself, my ad network do all of this for me.
If your website has a decent page views, say 50K or higher, I highly recommend you to apply to one of these ad networks:
(1) Mediavine: require 30K sessions per month
(2) AdThrive (which I currently use): require 100k page views per month.
Special thanks to @LaurenJean for telling me that I should apply for AdThrive ;)
I'm still doing some experiments on how to further grow my traffic and increase my conversion rate. So, here's what I'm doing behind the scene:
(1) Planning some tricks to increase my Amazon affiliate earning
(2) Planning my product launch (this is scary, I've putting it off for half a year, but I'm coming back again and finally getting serious, wish me luck).
I hope this post can inspire new and existing WA members that you have exactly the same opportunity or even better to reach the same level of success that I have.
Final Tip: follow Kyle & Carson's lessons, stay focused (don't be easily attracted with other shiny objects), and take action.
