    man thats crazy, one other person said that their load time was just over 15 seconds after adding Ezoic code to their domain too, I dont understand how fixing this is not the number one priority for Ezoic.

    On this new domain I just use in text links and a few comparison tables but I am not onto the content with comparisons yet so I only have like 10 on the domain. I never set a unique tracking ID up for the buttons on the domain that I started in August either so have no way to check how those buttons are performing :(.

    Yea I am pretty much set on my next one being infomational now too, the RPM from stuff like Media Vine and Ad Thrive seems decent enough and in theory, although the actual RPM is lower, it could be easier to get the traffic so the actual income for each hour invested could be similar to the stuff I do on Amazon.

    I've used Lucky Orange heatmap in the past as that gives a good idea of the number of people clicking on buttons, table elements, etc.

    I don't give my current method out and I think linking to Reddit is against BHW rules but if you Google my user name, Reddit, and Keyword Research I have a post on there going over an older method I used to use but it has the same problems and issues as KGR that I point out in my video on KGR.

    Great read. I'm following along now. That content though... amazing.

    It would be great to see how your traffic has built from organic over time with all this content being written.

    Income screenshot is from my full money site network.​
    • Article 1 - 2087 Words.
    • Amazon seem to have fixed their dashboard freezing issues.
    • Although different places are reporting different things, Amazon do seem to have confirmed that they will be suspending services for some of the things they offer. From what I can tell though, it will be more of an effect on the FBA guys than affiliates as most places do seem to be specifying that it is third-party vendors they will not be shipping.

    Cheers dude, here is the organic traffic growth for my two latest domains.

    [​IMG]

    The domain that I started in August 2019, my highest income source right now, was on track to earn >$1500 this month but stuff has dropped of with all the virus panic.

    [​IMG]
    The new domain that I started in January. I have been slacking off on content for it and not put as much link building into it as I did with the one above but its still growing and got its first comissions a few days back.

    This is great! Congratulations and good luck in the future.

    How many words do you have on your second domain and how do you find out with the niche?

    Do you use Amazon Native ads? What's your take on this?

    I build my main domains around targeting specific buyer intent keywords right now to push traffic via the actual intext links or comparison tables. I have tried Native ads on some older domains but don't really remember how they performed but I don't have them on any of my domains right now.

    • Article 1 - 1959 Words.
    • Manual forum post order delivered. Ordered 10 links but they over delivered with 13 links. 5 ********, 6 NoFollow and 1 dead. Happy with this as I expect at least half of what I initially ordered to be ******** and I got the 5.
    • Did some keyword research today to pick out some 0 search volume keywords that might have potential that I have worked into my work flow over the coming month. I had to scrap a surprising number of potential keywords as although Keywords Everywhere say they get 0 search volume, there is a large number of other domains targeting them specifically. I ended up with 25 keywords fully researched and ready to be actioned with about 50 more that I can process later if I want to increase the test batch.

    Looks like it's time to make Amazon Affiliate sites about toilet paper!

    lol, a guy on Reddit has actually made a toilet paper calculator site to tell you how many rolls you need to get through quarantine and was asking how he would be able to monetize it as he's getting five-figure hits a day >.<.

    Damn. That's crazy. Even just on adthrive he could make $100 a day minimum. Probably more like 500 a day. Plus affiliate links to survival gear, 72 hour kit backpacks, those prepared meal buckets for food storage. Etc. My God. He is literally sitting on a gold mine.

    Apparently its up to 150,000 hits a day now but I think he has sold the domain rather than keep it. Can't blame him to be honest as its virul social traffic rather than anything.

    I wonder how long an affiliate site like this would be needed. After the panic fades the site is dead. It's a nice churn and burn project though, and should only be promoted via the social media, because of all of the sandboxes from Google.

    Btw, are you guys planning anything pandemic-related?
