    About Me
    Im David, i started with IM when I registered this site. I have always been fascinated with websites and fitness. I currently work 9-5 but hope to change that with combining my passion of fitness and IM.

    Background


    Almost two years ago I decided to start my own fitness brand website. Fitness has been my passion and I enjoy it alot, which makes it a hell of a lot easier to work on the site if its a passion. I highly recommend to combine a passion with IM. I registered the domain but didn't work on it much because I thought I was going to get rich off penny stocks. I didn't. Therefore here I am 1.5 years later planning out my journey and logging it as I go.

    Domain
    New domain when it was registered. I checked expired domains but none of the urls were brandable. A good brand needs to start with a good name and I was lucky enough to get an amazing domain that's brandable. Sure in the short term it will be tough but in the long run it will workout better as it's brandable, I came up with the name myself so I appreciate it more.

    Domain Metrics
    Trust flow - 12
    Citation flow - 23
    Backlinks - 340
    Refering domains - 67
    Refering IPs - 64

    Monetizing Plan
    Starting off with amazon affiliate. As rankings inrease I will be adding a range of downloadable ebook products and clothing down the line, but hey thats another year or so.

    Content
    As of today I have 55 articles and 8 pages full of content. I have a article writer that will produce about 2 articles per week of a top of my choice and she is fluent in english and after shes done I go in and work mote magic. Quality content is key!!! I actually researched and wanted to know all about these articles that are being written at one point in my life.

    On Page SEO
    The website is silo structured. The main page has veey competitive words and as the structure tiers the keywords get easier to rank. The silo has 4 teirs as the most. It can go page>page>page>post passing juice onto each site by interlinking the sister pages and the father pages. 2 links per page with bolded keywords.

    Off Page SEO
    A variety of links that I will test and see which ones work but In a slow process trying to rely mostly on my good content to create shares and rankings. I wont be order SEO as I still want to monetize every page properly with amazon affiliate with good products.

    Keywords
    Every page has a strict set of keywords I focus on. Each pages focuses on one subject with about 10 keywords relating to the subject. If the keyword has subtipics i will make a sub post and interlink it using the silo strcuture. By sub topics I mean if an article about a Desk is written, I will create a subtopic of Best Desks to buy if the search volume is good enough.

    Rankings
    As of know according to webmaster tool I am getting about 6ish clicks a day resulting in about 212 people a month. I am ranked 1 for a 220 volume keyword and rankings are 2/3 page for many other keywords I am targetting.


    Money
    Total Revenue - 3$ish
    Content Price - $860
    SEO - 100$

    Will I quit?
    No, it is my passion and goal. I have been slowly working on it the past year (very slowly) and now I want to vamp it up a lot more. By posting this thread I am making a promise to everyone and myself I will stick with it and this will be my diary that is open for all to read. If anyone has questions or recommendations feel free to comment!

    My next step?

    My next few steps are to monetize every post and page with items correlating to the post and get the forum running properly along with getting new articles posted weekly.

    If you're going down the Amazon route, take a look at the easyazon plugin, it allows you to easily add relevant products into posts and it geo targets

    Just wanted to give an update on the progress,

    Last month pulled in $2 in revenue, a few hundred people coming in.

    Rankings are coming in the articles that I am targeting for.

    High bounce rate so I am going to go back and edit articles and adding emotional words like "reveal, secret, guess what, you'll never believe."

    Also editing the titles and see what performs best as far as click through rate, I am adding numbers and [ ] with text in them for example

    6 Ways To Eat Candy [Research Back]

    Virtually none of the keywords I am targeting have anything in brackets, which means I will stand out!

    Doing a lot of testing to see what works and what doesn't as far as getting my click through rate and bounce rate to levels that are acceptable.

    I want everything to be perfect before I move onto back linking.

    if the bounce rate is crap you have to remake the page. better content and better pictures and links that people stay on your page somehow.

    Following. I too myself are in a similar niche to yourself.

    I thought the fitness niche would be saturated but am able to find good keywords for fitness related products.

    If you can brand yourself personally well and grow, theres no ends to what you can do with ebooks, tailored made diet plans, clothing & advice

    Keeping posted.
