21 Months into WA and I'm still trying to piece it together!

Last Update: December 17, 2019

At the beginning I choose a health niche mainly because I have used so many natural products over the years that worked for me.

I'm kinda at a crossroads, 21 months, written 200 pages/posts,123 clicks from 3 affiliate links, Amazon by far the best converting 9.87% 133 sales in total between the three affiliate links total income for 21 months work $700. I have listened to all the best training, I'm doing SEO to the best of my ability, I use Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Youtube to drive traffic.

Traffic is going the opposite way to the way it should, (last 28 days 830 visitors 64% organic, 15.6% social, 13.6% direct,)

I have rewritten some posts and added a Youtube video to as many posts as I could, however traffic continues to decrease. Google seems to like the large health websites WEB MD, Healthline and so many others, I guess because of their authority.

The crossroads is right in front of me, the question is do I keep going and write another 200 posts and hope that Google will show me some more love or do I look at a different niche altogether and move on?

Any thoughts are much appreciated,from someone who has been in my situation in the past.

Fintan! It seems to me you're doing very well--only you can make that decision, but no matter what--you can still keep the site you have as well! Fantastic progress!

I know the feeling. My niche is very competitive, too, but I love it. Therefore, think I'll just keep plugging away.

That seems a lot of traffic to me. Well done.
As for seo, Did you check on bing or yahoo?
And your keywords? Some times, change helps

Good luck

Hi Fleeky,
I’m on the first page of Bing and Yahoo for a good number of keywords compared to Google.
When you said change helps sometimes do you mean start a new niche?
Thanks
Fintan
