78 Visitors on My Site Right Now

Last Update: July 23, 2018

New record for me!

One of my posts just blew up today. I don't know the cause, but about 80% of that traffic is to one post that I created quite a while ago. Historically, that post has done well, with a couple hundred visits to it each day.

I also rank #1 for my target keyword, and in the top three for many related keywords.

And in case you're wondering, no, I did nothing "special" with this post. I gave thorough information, it's over 1,000 words, and I did all the on-page SEO which is taught here at Wealthy Affiliate.

I guess this is bound to happen eventually if you provide helpful information and have a lot of articles ranking #1. :)

Anyway, just thought I'd share this with the community. Hopefully it serves as motivation for you to get working on your site. It can and will happen, you just can't give up!

Wishing you success!

Awesome job. Just curious, do you apply the over 100 searches and under 100 QSR method taught here for your KWs?

No, my site is far enough along that I don't bother with QSR any more (I did in the beginning though). Some posts of mine rank in the top three for some incredibly competitive keywords (300+ QSR). :)

When your site is less than a year old, I would recommend sticking to low competition keywords. Once you really gain Google's trust (you'll know when your site starts to dominate your chosen keywords), you no longer have to worry so much about QSR.

A bunch! That was a great post. I’m going to go through every MMO “opportunity” I’ve bought into or looked at and do a complete with WA on my site.
