Should I resume my halted journey to Vegas?

Last Update: October 01, 2019

When Kyle issued the SAC challenge 6 months ago, I took it up without hestitation. Back then, my first website was doing quite well on Amazon and I had a second site started.

I thought I could juggle a 3rd SAC site. I did started and have about a dozen of blog articles before hell happens.

Google released a Broad Core SEO update in June, and wiped out almost half of my traffic. I had to make tough decisions and decided to put the SAC site on hold.

I amplified content, and improve some E-A-T factors on my first site. There were little improvements but it did get slightly better in August.

Kyle urged WA members to stay calm and continue producing awesome contents. And so I did.

But it was disheartening to have sites built on backlinks outranking mine. That was until a few days back, when another SEO update was released, and shady backlinking strategies were punished.

Thankfully, my site recovered with a handful of pages hitting the top spot for the keywords.

For the past 3 months, I've also been working zealously on my 2nd Amazon niche site. I churned out 40+ articles and it has hit the first $100 month on Amazon.

I'm about 70% done with my 2nd site.

I suppose now I have some breathing space, with Google starting to love me back and Amazon being the best online salesperson.

Just wondering if I should pick up where I left off with my SAC site. Or build another Amazon niche site.

What's your say?

You only need 100 Premium referrals in 3 months and you do have the Black Friday sale coming up. Go for it!

"Perhaps my niche is making profitable websites rather than the niche of the website itself"

I agree with you on the above statement.

The proof also said by yourself

"For the past 3 months, I've also been working zealously on my 2nd Amazon niche site. I churned out 40+ articles and it has hit the first $100 month on Amazon."

Although not related to your current blog post,
could you please give us a brief summary of
your strategy to achieve $100/month in 3 months?

Many have not even cracked their first $100/month
with their 6 month or 1 year blog, so it will be really
helpful if you can give us your formula.

Thank you, Kenny

I'm of the opinion to stick with one niche personally, as long as its one you know well and interact daily with

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the feedback. Will take that into consideration. Perhaps my niche is making profitable websites rather than the niche of the website itself.

Just trying to get some clarity in moving forward.

Cheers,
Kenny

Hey Ken,

I think you should defiantly stay with one niche. No Matter what you want to do, one niche is huge and needs to be built out for a lifetime. Expand, build it out, and you'll have a huge website!

Sincerely,

Michael V.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your feedback.

My 1st site is huge, in that it has more than 200 blog articles. But it's littered with rookie mistakes and it's too much effort to fix everything.

As for my 2nd site, it's meant to be a micro-niche 100 article site.

I'll see how I can move on from here. Your thoughts are indeed helpful.

Cheers,
Kenny
