    I'm not sure what you mean? I did not work on backlinks, per Project 24 guidelines but have realized their importance and have started. I focused on content.

    Oh ok. What type of backlinks are you building? Any PBNs or Guest Posts? How many months until you started building backlinks?

    Do you think your sites exponential growth is due to the backlinks you’ve been building?

    Sorry for all of the questions. I’m starting my own site as well and a month in.

    No, I only have a few real backlink. They are from vendors in my industry. I have some old blogs myself on different topics. I linked a little from those. I have a few more coming out from industry blogs and a magazine who interviewed me. I'm swapping links for the first time this week. I've stayed white hat.

    @Big Ron For comparison:

    Here are my stats from ubbersuggest:

    upload_2019-11-12_17-27-48.png


    I haven't added any new content in about a month. Traffic still growing organically.
    I have built 0 backlinks.

    This is my main competition:

    upload_2019-11-12_17-28-58.png


    There is a lot of organic traffic there I can eat into. I am ranking higher than this site on most of the keywords i have written for. Its just a matter of time to write. Im more invested in my sports betting at the moment which is extremely profitable.

    I did notice the drop in long tails last month:

    upload_2019-11-12_17-30-41.png

    but the green and yellow (1-3 and 4-10) improved significantly. So the latest google updates have really hurt my longer tail keyword traffic. That just gives me more keywords to target though but again that is more writing and that takes time.

    Great job Paul. You are always a few steps ahead of me. I wouldn't stop the lucrative side hustle either. Maybe at some point you can consider a sports betting niche and a "How To" video course to share your lucrative system.

    tldr the recent COPPA is about the ftc fining 42k for each video if you content is made for kids, I believe maybe the ppl in income school had this inside knowledge and decided to make gun videos when at that time it was against the grain could be abit farfetch but who knows

    I doubt that just because COPPA was common knowledge long before they started that channel.

    Also, though I'm not sure how honest they are, they have said the focus of channels like backfire is affiliate sales not revenue share. They primarily do product reviews and promote their Amazon affiliate link.

    I'm not even sure you can monetize a firearms channel on YouTube anymore.

    you will be fined if your content is made for kids but not marked as made for kids.

    Knowing youtube with their lousy ai that demonetized channels some times for no reason highly likely they will ban and delete your channel to prevent getting sued even if you mark your content not for kids and they think it's for kids, even huge youtubers like h3h3 have no money to get lawyers they require crowdfunding how would an avg creator be able to get a lawyer to defend themself for 42k fine a video.

    Also if you make content for kids i heard you get your functions like comments and notification bell and live chat disabled and also cant get personalized ads on users who watch your videos meaning a huge revenue drop and you have no way to grow your community.

    They have all that fancy technology and still demonetized iphone video because there was X in title.

    yes, guidelines are very vague, if you don't make content for kids but kids watch them and you know it like history related animated content you have to mark them as made for kids. A lot of cooking channels have cartoon theme cooking videos which will also be affected. I think after some trial and error guidelines will be revised and made more specific as it will also hurt youtube or google will figure out something as they don't care about creators, viewers but they care about their revenue and advertisers.

    From January all those features will be disabled I have marked some videos as made for kids no feature has been disabled yet.

    I love when I have writers that just outsource the work... fucking idiot.

    well you just lost your best client. Thanks you ron.

    You messed up since I am an active member here on blackhatworld as well.

    I do pay well for my writers and editors.

    Sorry but never ever use your sevices again.

    Also, you can monetize firearms channels. You just need to be careful because YouTube has a lot of restrictions on gun content.

    I uploaded a video recently and kept it marked private until I was done with editing. Apparently that is enough to put it in holding status until reviewed.
