Hey, guys, i would like to share my experience within my site. Now i am really focused on this site, trying to get higher traffic and earn some bucks ! My website niche is one favourite sport game. I started writing some stuff maybe 2-3 years ago on one bigger site with other micro-game-sites. Than i have created my own site for local fans, but this was not really an active site. Low traffic and content wasn't good at all. The PHP code was awful and messy. Before 3-5 months i started rewritting code, using PHP and Nette Framework, which saves me a lot of time. Still for local fans. Than i have realized, if i want to get more traffic and etc i need to create an international site, more content and other stuff on website. So i have built translation, create several modules like discussion, users profiles, comments module (replace for facebook comments), site where users can upload their own content... Project is almost complete, just sometimes i repair some bug or add some lines to administration code. Now i am focusing on optimalization, content and SEO stuff. I am going to use facebook and youtube to drive traffic to my site (other micro technigues too). Youtube One of my youtube accounts is several years old, around 70 videos, 70% of whole videos focus on my site niche, around 250k views. Now i have created second account (because of 2 copyrights warnings on first acc.), for now 4 videos uploaded, around 2k view within 3-4 days. Something around 30% views a hit by sharing it on facebook sites. I will continue in uploading and similiar things. I've found out this like really strong tool, just imagine when there's a youtube video in search results. I am going to focus on couple important keywords in this videos. Facebook Three facebook pages, the first contains 800+ users, just local users, this page goes really well among search results, for some keywords - local language it's on the first positions. That help mi to get more users without any bigger effort. The second one i've just created to get more international users, is 300+ users big, name is one important keyword and users like it quite automatically, suppose facebook shows it in its search results, but it reach more users from east europe. Sometimes not so good content reach. The third one is new, no need to mention about that for now. Also twitter with just 30+ followers. Domain - hosting info It's a new domain, 2 months old, i re-directed the domain on my hosting week ago. Website running on one favourite czech hosting, i caught a discount 90%, so hosting per year cost me around 1 ?. Domain .com 7 ?. Stats for the first week I added my site to webmaster tools, google analytics, i will check some serp service in a week. Submitted sitemap. Sitemap is really important if you want to get your site indexed really quick ! It's faster than i was expecting, maybe 2-3x times ! Webmaster stats: 66 submitted pages, 11 indexed already site info show better results for indexed pages !). 6 keywords are indexed in queries, for now i don't care about their position match, not so important for me. Need to focus on long-tail and similiar. With just easy keywords i cannot compete with big game sites on first position. Analytics: 300+ unique visitors, bounce rate around 54%, 1000+ pageviews. Social channel drive around 60%+ visitors for now. CPC: i've created adSense account, now showing two ads panels, one on the right side, which is fixed and other one within the articles. Earnings within two days of adSense : 0,02?. Plans for upcoming days Create more intersting content for visitors, continue in translating old articles to english language, continue writing quality SEO articles and aim on 1-3 important keywords in them, upload more videos on youtube which will be in role of referers for my articles and cotent. Start building backlinks, blogs, creating posts on similiar niche forums etc. Hint at the end When you share content on social sites or everywhere else, try to write most interesting title so people will click on that link. Improved my visits stats from social sites really much ! For example: Did you know, that... , focusing on some favourite users stuff, they want to know more ! I just wanna share my experience, this is not really rich niche to earn more bucks, will be glad if i drive more traffic within 1-3 months Cheers !
