10 Sales by Noon but So Sick
Good news and bad news today.
First the Good News.
I had 10 sales on Amazon by noon today! Wow! That must be a new record for me. They were all through my second site. I think my post on clinically proven supplements for corona viruses is doing really well. It is not #1 on Google anymore but it is doing very well on Bing and Yahoo and people are still finding it on Google as well.
We Must Be Careful Not To Mislead People!
I see a website for a supplement called Coronavita when I search for my post. I looked at the site and it is 1 page. There is no About information. No background. No information about anything other than 1 paragraph about this one supplement. There is no information about the ingredients in the supplement! Nothing about how those ingredients work against a coronavirus. No references to clinical studies like I have. No disclaimer that the site owner is not a doctor etc. This stuff could be totally useless and just taking people's money!
I was careful to state right up front that I am not a doctor and that no-one knows for sure what will work against this new strain of coronavirus. I explain that there are supplements that have been tested in trials to kill or greatly weaken other corona viruses like SARS and other dangerous viruses like avian influenza as well as drug resistant bacteria like MRSA. The way these supplements work is broad based so they work against hundreds of different viruses and bacteria whereas vaccines only work against one or two strains. They are likely to have some effect on the new 2019 Novel coronavirus even though there are no tests yet. I spent days putting together academic references to real studies testing each of these supplements and adding active links to each one so people can go straight to the source. No one needs to take my word at all.
I would never slap up a website and claim to have a treatment for something new that had never been tested however!! I bet that site will not be up for long.
In any case, my site is doing well! People bought a bunch of immunity boosting supplements some of which I have not reviewed.
Most of the traffic is organic traffic as well.
Now the Bad News with a golden lining
I am sick. I have bronchitis. I stayed home from work today and feel miserable. I was shocked to see I had 10 sales when I checked Amazon! What a sick day bonus!
This is why we build up our sites, so someday we won't need a job and can work from anywhere.
Onward and Upward,
