12 Month SWAG Report: Nothing to Shout Home About.
Hi guys n' gals!
After 12 months of putting ALL my effort into a Bootcamp blog, I'm actually disappointed by the lack of results.
I don't mean to sound too negative lol, but I envisioned reaching the 12-month mark with a decent amount of traffic and a part-time income to be proud of.
Up to this point, I've managed just 4 premium WA referrals, 0 NON-WA free/paid Jaaxy referrals, and very little to show from another affiliate program.
With now over 260 posts after 12 months, all I'm getting is less than 60 organic visitors per day from Google.
But some Bootcampers with far less posts and younger blogs are getting 2 to 3X that amount of traffic and with better success rates too.
Maybe I just need to keep plugging away for a little longer? Maybe I've just published too much content too soon and need to slow down a little? Maybe I need more than 2,000 comments? Maybe I should be building 1,000s of backlinks like some other Bootcampers have done for massive income results? Who knows.
But there comes a point when you feel angry, frustrated, and demoralised, and you consider throwing in the towel on the whole "blogging thing" completely.
But that other part of you tells you not to lose faith.
However, the good news is that some of my reviews are sitting on Google page 2 - even if the majority of them have been stuck there for the last 12 months lol.
But anyways, here are the results after 12 months:
Google Search Console Traffic From October 5TH 2017 - October 5TH 2018:
In terms of free WA referral results over the last 12 months:
SiteRubix Referrals: 6.
I just hope the time/effort I've invested will start paying off in the next few months.
Hopefully, Black Friday will bring some good results too.
As for qualifying for Vegas, still got 98 sales to go. But at the slow snail rate speed of the site's progress, I think the chances of making it to Vegas are getting slimmer as time ticks by.
Fingers crossed, those 98 premiums come rolling in during November/December.
