Here we are on day 15 since I put up my first affiliate site – Today is a good day. Today I have reached page one of Google search for my main keyword. And to top everything off – Today we got our first sale!!!
That’s right 15 days after buying a brand new domain and building a 4 page site – and we’re ranking in the top 10 for a keyword that gets 30k searches a month and has 150k sites that are listed for the term.
The sale netted me about $5 – one more sale and the domain is paid for for the year – and since the hosting is all on the same plan for this site, and many others of mine – So in about 2 more sales the site will have paid its share of the yearly hosting.
I’m going to stick with this site and keep trying to get it ranked higher on page 1. That will surely bring in more traffic/sales – Right now I’m pretty low on the page in spot 10. Sure it’s the last spot on page 1 – but it’s still page 1 – and organic traffic to my site has doubled already today than it was yesterday when I was still ranking on page 2. And the day is only half over
