I didn't know that I was ranking.

Last Update: April 04, 2021

In my quest for further knowledge, I checked out a website to see how my site was doing.

To my surprise, I had ranked for several keywords completely unbeknownst to me! In fact, I was ranking for five or six different keywords! Maybe that partially explains the 174 visitors to my site last month according to Google Analytics.

I must admit, the progress was much slower than I had hoped for, but that was mostly on me. I was not doing the work. I was not writing the posts. Over the past few weeks, I have been writing a lot of posts and the results have been not only getting indexed much quicker than usual but also ranking for a few keywords!

I owe this accomplishment in part to the training here at Wealthy Affiliate. However, I would be remiss to sluff off noting the efforts that I have been putting in, as well.

It takes work on our parts to see success. Yes, we might get lucky a few times and see moments of success, but to really see the BIG picture of success, is going to take work!

I watched a video yesterday by Mark Hoverson titled Law of Money Attraction. Hoverson makes some excellent points about what it takes to make the sale. I think he is talking more about direct sales, but the lesson applies here to affiliate marketing, too. You can find the video on youtube.

I wish you all a beautiful day!

What a wonderful discovery! That had to be such a fun surprise. Congrats.

You aren't alone in hoping it would all happen faster; I think that just about everyone shares that hope. As a results, some quit before they reach their goal, but you pushed through and are now starting to experience the success you're hoping for. Keep up the great job!

Karin, this is such great news. We are so excited for you. 100+ visitors is a great start. Your blogs are meeting needs. You may find that you can use some of those query keywords from GSC for new posts as well. Search engines give you an indication of what you can rank easier for.

We wish you continued success.

That's great Karin, many congratulations!

I totally agree that we may be able to get lucky on the odd occasion, but it's the hard work and consistency that will pay off in the end.

Have a beautiful day yourself!
