My SWAG Progress (6 Months)
Hello, guys n' gals!
Greetings from sunny Ye Olde England!
I was gonna share this update yesterday, but I was busy celebrating the Royal Wedding along with most of the UK. You know how it is. ;)
Actually, this progress report is more than a month overdue because I've been so busy with my Bootcamp blog.
I must admit, the 6-month mark was a disappointment because I expected a breakthrough around the 4 or 5-month mark, which never happened. :(
But on a positive note, a handful of reviews are on page 1 (bringing a trickle of visitors), with a number of reviews on page 2. So things are looking up.
Progress so far:
Month #4 (February 2018)
Google Search Console Data:
As you can see from October - February, slow progress has been made in terms of impressions and clicks.
As for actual blog post and comment numbers, I kinda forgot to capture this info. Oops, my bad!
Month #5 (March)
Now for that month and the one after, I remembered to record the blog progress.
Month #6 (April)
While it may seem like I published content and gained comments like a true WordPress Warrior, most posts and comments were imported from my previous failed blog.
But having said that, I re-wrote a lot of the articles/reviews and even published some new content.
For the first 3 months (read 3-month progress here), I posted almost 7 days a week.
During the 3 months that followed, I slowed down to 4 - 5 posts times per week because who can actually maintain that level of intensity for a long period of time without going crazy? lol.
We all need a breather, right?
But needless to say, my blog is coming along nicely, even if no organic sales were generated within the first 6-month period.
However, I have got a few WA referrals and made some commissions in May (and hopefully in the coming months too) which I'll be sharing in the 9-month report. ;)
Is Vegas on the horizon, that's the big question?
Only hard work and time will tell I guess.
If you are doing SWAG, don't get discouraged if you're not seeing results after the 4 or even the 5-month mark.
Keep plodding along with content and comments, even if you do get those days when you feel like launching your laptop out the window lol.
There's not much else for me to say until the 9 - 12 month marks arrive.
Bring on Vegas, BABY!!!
Until next time...
