7 Months. 200 Posts. 2,000 Comments!
Today, marks a big milestone for my SWAG Bootcamp Blog.
Within 7 months and exactly 19 days, I've published 200 posts and got over 2,000 comments. Hell Yeah!!
The site contains a mixture of brand new posts and content re-written from my old site.
The same applies to comments - there are many new ones and some old edited to reflect the updated reviews.
(I put that much time and effort into SiteComments over the months, that I've earned position 2 as one of the top commenters) lol.
Plus images had to be re-added and everything spell checked, both here at WA and using Grammarly.
So, yeah, a GIANT task!
You may think the blog is getting a TON of daily traffic but it's far from it, unfortunately.
It's only at the 30 - 40 visitor/day mark.
When I first started Bootcamp in 2013, it was easy to get 50 - 100 visitors/day within the first 3 months. (But don't ask about my 3 failed Bootcamp sites in the past. It's a sore subject) LOL.
Fast forward to today, and it's now double (almost triple) that time to get any decent traction in Google within the 'MMO' niche.
So competition is definitely getting tougher, but success is still doable - given enough hard work and time.
It's also exciting to think about my results over the next few months and when the site finally reaches that 100% trust milsetone.
If you wanna see how my site has evolved in terms of content/engagement and traffic over the last 6 months:
Also, another teeny-weeny celebration: 297 sales for Vegas still to go this year. WOOP WOOP!
But it's not quite time for Champagne bottle cork-popping just yet! :P
I hope this post gives WA Bootcampers (and everyone else) some insights and a little inspiration.
And if you are aiming for Vegas in 2019, I look forward to meeting some of you boyz n' girlz there.
Peace Out, You Lovely Peeps!
