    Hello everyone.
    I had started a new website 60 days ago selling some article packs and more and the site started making 10-40 USD a day.

    My stats are low. 70 unique hits per day but my site is very well indexed and I get good rankings at first page of Google with my product name keywords.

    Although the unique hits are low, the conversion is good I think. The site makes at least 2 sales per day. The average is about 4.

    I will surely be adding new products and get more rankings in long tail keywords but I am thinking further to expand the business so what should I do?

    • Buy traffic?
    • Buy backlinks?
    • Any other advices?

    Thank you for your attention to my question by now...

    Hmm I see you taped into a "to my knowledge" a very saturated market.
    And seeing you are making sales is a good!

    What I think is best. Repeat what you have done to acomplish those 4 sales a day.
    Think of what you have done to get those sales.. and repeat these steps with more
    articles packages. Maby different niches and so on.

    I think it isn't neccesary to buy backlinks and suchs since you already get a good
    result in Google rank. As you mentioned yourself.

    I hope this helps ;)

    Thanks for the reply.

    As further details I managed to get my site Alexa Ranking to 606.000 from 12 millions. It is positioned at 133.000s at US sites also. ( Yes I used some Black Hat at Alexa ratings )

    Also I have managed to get 33000 links from 33 unique domains indexed at Yahoo. ( Yes I have some link farms of my own )

    The site has also 1540 pages indexed at Google searches. ( No. There is no black hat methods used )

    Any ideas, thoughts or advices?
    Am I doing right or can it be better?

    You could try to buy some traffic, but i don't know how will really help you, because i think you products are low-cost and the traffic buying is expensive, especially on adwords. You could try a campaign on Facebook. Invest 50$, see how that works. Don't expect to make sales. Just learn. After that invest another 50$ an see how that works. If you don't make some sales the third time you try this, than don't buy traffic. :) Get some course about facebook marketing from the download section of this forum. That should help.

    All the best.

    I would try to buy some traffic as well if I was you. If you're selling article packs maybe even buying some space on some internet marketing forums would be good. I wish I was certain about what you were selling then I might actually have some better advice 4u.

    Hmmm I was also thinking about making an affiliate program. Thanks for the idea. A quick question. How much share is attractive?

    Also buying traffic is a strong option on my choices. Can anyone recommend any reliable traffic source from BHW? As I started this site here I want to give a fellow BHW member some decent amount.

    You may not like the "default" :) affiliate commison rates : it is 75 % mostly in clickbank products..But it doesnt matter someone is earning high , dont think about it as long as , you can cover your investment cost and some profit from your articles..

    Beside this , when your product will be famous and started to sold by many affiliates , you have power to set your share lower and lower as a trustable good vendor..

    And for the traffic , leave it to PPC experts , let other people worry about selling or converting your products and you pay them only and only they made an succesfull lead.

    But is there a better solutions than the clickbank (as a vendor) , yes it is discussable and I would like to hear also..

    You can try vertical integration by offering relevant product or services. For example, if you are selling pre-written articles, then you can sell custom article service and vise versa. Also can add custom sales letter and press release service.

    Possibilities are endless. You can also invest your earned money to different segments. Diversifying will make your investments lot more safer.

    All the best.

    Thank you for all advices. I am considering them, and I'll probably start an affiliate campaign in the following month.

    %75 is not much as the affiliates sell the products which won't be cheap. Because the product range goes from $2 to $50 so I think it will be better this way for both me and the affiliates.

    I have checked the status of my site and ranking at the Google searches.
    Here are the keywords that I'm in top 10 in 2 months.

    Code:
    hair removal plr
    etf plr articles
    auto traffic machine
    furniture storage plr
    plr neck pain
    stomach gas plr
    psp plr articles
    mrr license
    virus protection plr
    private label rights ebook pack
    cat nutrition plr
    mobile site bot mrr
    plr cross stitch
    skin cancer plr
    fan page templates plr
    nappy plr
    superfoods ebook plr
    plr on smart phones
    2011 mrr plr products
    plr airsoft articles
    plr nutrition food label guide
    asbestos plr articles
    collagen plr articles
    mobile website plr
    plr niche selection
    yoga workouts plr
    
    and at least 20 more keywords give me the traffic and the sales. I wonder if I am going the right way?

    1k links per domain? Surely that can't be correct?

    Yes that can be correct.
    I have used more than 30 autoblogs for two years for AdSense revenue and they grew much more than I expected. Also I used some content spinner plugins on them and they got the job done in years but not now.
    As the Big G slap has occured I removed all the AdSense ads from them and wait until a solution is considerable on that autoblogs. So these are only my linkfarms now. Yes the quantity is much but the quality is poor I must admit. All indexed pages but no PR.
    Each of these blogs have more than 15k indexed pages, and I use RSS widget to get the backlinks to my pointed website.
    Also this is the backlink number which I got from Google Webmaster Tools.
    So this way I got 30k backlinks.
