Things like "Is BHW a forum"
I would do:
Intro - 100 words
H2 (Is BHW a forum) - 200 words
H2 (What is BHW) - 200 words
H2 (What can you learn on BHW) - 200 words
Summary - 100 words
Hey OP! How are you doing? I've been reading your journey thread from 1st page again, then I found this GOOD piece of information shared by you. It looks so simple but I know how powerful this technique would be. Thanks for sharing.

PS: You are great inspiration for us with your target of 600 articles :)

Me just started mate. Couple of months back.
No. of posts published - 9 so far (1500+ words) but could not find time to push myself. So it's very slow now. And started learning some SEO basics as well. Let' see. ;)

UPDATE #35
06/10/21


Hey there, back at it again, I just got back from road trip, just started writing & publishing again! We're in the green so far:

  • Wrote and published 4 articles for the 2nd site, been a long time!
  • The main site is still bouncing, getting closer and closer to 200 daily clicks, but there's still a long way to go!
  • Concerning the first site, I've contacted and talked with few people that had the same progression as me, many of them told me that it's too early to judge if something is going wrong
  • Some articles on the first site are really taking off, one of them is bringing almost 1/3 of the daily traffic, which is nuts
  • I also just finished writing the articles for all the keyword I've found (for the 2nd site), so I'll be finding some others underserved keywords for the next weeks!

How do you find so many new keywords without them overlapping? For example - do you write 2 different articles on topics such as "how to get blue hair" and "how to get blue hair in high school"? What about keywords like "how to get blue hair" and "ways to get blue hair"?

Thanks and good luck :)

Yes, just keep publishing content. It is all about the Law of Averages. Write enough content and eventually, a certain percentage will be routinely viewed.
That's so true, and yeah that's what I plan to do! It's like throwing darts at a target, the more you throw, the more chance you have to hit the bull!

Nah man that's not good, in my eyes those are the same, as Morten from Passive Income Geek, I like to look at things as topic and not keyword! That's why I go for "broad" niche site; For example, I would create a site around Golf, cars, or house decorations, but not about golf club, Ferrari or wood furniture.

That way, there's a LOT of things to cover, then, you can silo all your articles in different categories! :)

And to answer your question, just try the alphabet soup method for keyword research, you'll find a lot of topics to drill down into, and then even more!

Here is the weekly update! We can now see a clear uptrend in terms of clicks & impressions, the breakdown:

  • Today, we hit the all-time high in terms of clicks & impressions, with 253 clicks and 4123 impressions! (Check screen below)
  • The average position from SERP Robot is also getting better and better
  • Some articles are really taking off, while others are starting to get impressions
  • Feels like this winter will be when this site is really gonna take off
  • I've been thinking more & more about re-integrating Ezoic on the site
  • Also wrote and published another 4 articles on the second site (Didn't have many times since I'm working on 2 others sites)

yeah I'm thinking about this, but I also wonder is Ezoic is slowing down the growth of my site, because it's hitting the site speed for sure (I tested it before)

@GVald Have you considered moving this site to better hosting or VPS? That should solve additional load issues with Ezoic. Earnings should be enough to compensate for the upgrade.
