2020 Boom or Doom?! Let's Get Analytical!
The success and failures with my Bootcamp website.
For those who still don't know me, and I've been around for some time now, I'm Pedro and I've been working online (the wrong way tough) most of my life... If you are into some "once upon a time" type of mood check my bio ;).
This post is about objectives, projections, and results.
What I've been (I'm) doing wrong or right and what do I expect to achieve this year.
2020 High Hopes
I started to work on my Bootcamp website 2 years ago using a mix of WA training with what I already knew about SEO and online business.
Sometimes is easier to teach someone that knows 0 about a subject than someone with a background in that area... that was 100% my case!
In between google updates and lack of time to pump out decent content consistently, I kept changing themes,
changing SEO plugins trying everything "tech" side instead of simply "follow the training!...
There is always someone/something to blame for...
I boosted my website visitors by 80.3% in less than one month!
How did I go from 2.3k to 4.1k visitors in 28 days?
Good question! I can tell you right off the bat it wasn't rocket science!
I've been pumping out 5 pieces of content per week for some time.
Aim for good, targeted and well-researched content from Monday to Friday, I don't publish anything on Weekends.
The idea is to create a pattern and stay consistent.
If you want to get my exact method check this video here where I published and rank a post to page 1 of Google in 5 minutes or less... [Literally].
Where do these visitors all come from?
As you can see most of my traffic comes from Google and its organic. That means that I'm doing something right! ;)
How do I Make Money Online?
You can monetize your website in various ways, but what is the point of monetizing if you don't have any traffic yet?
I could have Google Adwords running on this site and get some "passive income" with ads but I'm aiming for the next level ;)
As I write this my website is "add" free. For several reasons:
- I don't want to distract people and send people away from my website. My main intent on this website is to funnel people to Wealthy Affiliate either to my Wealthy Affiliate Review page or directly to WA website with my affiliate link.
- I want to raise my traffic up to 1k++ visitors per day before I apply to a high add service. You can get big bucks from this, [ REAL PASSIVE].
The thing is, you also need high-quality traffic, the companies that pay the most per add, for example, Mediavine they want highly targeted traffic.
Considering this chart over here looks like I'm doing something right as well ;)
Most of my traffic comes from the US, then bit from Canada, UK, and Australia! Pretty awesome!
So, Where am I sucking?
Well for starters, bad conversion rate.
It looks like my website is "too clean".
I can blame my photoshop Webdesign background... but I don't like websites filled with popups and ads.
I can blame the type of reviews, maybe too much phone apps reviews (I wonder why I have such high % of mobile visitors) :/
Mobile visitors hardly convert! <-- It's a fact!
Or I can blame me for not A/B testing everything a lot more.
High Bounce Rate.
I really have some trouble with this one, I don't even know how accurate it is, because I follow google analytics a lot and I often see people visiting in "real-time" staying on-site 2+ minutes...
My website is blazing fast
My user experience is good (easy navigation, clean website)
One thing that I can think of, is the SERP title and meta title.
I stopped making them so compelling and controversial... ( Idea was to boost click-through rate) and started to make them more post descriptive... let's see how this works out.
What I want to achieve in 2020 with the Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp Website.
Boost my visitors to 1k++ per day.
Get this website making $3k to 4k + per month mixing affiliate and ad revenue.
Making as much WA sales as possible ;)
I hope this information can help you in some way!
Now I really want to ask you something, do you think my goals are achievable?
Let me know what you guys think, considering where I am at the moment! If you have any suggestions/advice, please let me know!
