A little update. renewed domain + hosting for 1 more year 76.41$ + ordered new content 72$ (from super11). ( it'll be delivered shortly). and also linked with amazon Onelink for localization (canada and uk)
Total expense so far
Not bad i guess. considering that i only put minimal effort so far.


A nice improvement.
I've not really seen anyone rave about this Amazon One Link Localisation, but it's clearly working for you.

So, yeah site is progressing slowly. What's next?
1. Need to change the theme - Can anyone suggest nice looking SEO optimized theme?
I'm thinking of buying either Aspire pro or schema. What do you think?
2. Need to publish 1 more content ,to make it 10 articles
3. After that i'll optimize on site content and will start Off site campaign( I will outsource it from marketplace). I'll let you know results after that

And here's the anniversary and end of the journey. Next months, may be i'll earn less or same. I do not intend to working on it any further. And as of late life is getting difficult with a lot of debt and responsibilities. And amazon commission is very low and in my understanding it's a matter of time before the associate will reduce commission even further and probably shut it down in a few years. I'm not being pessimist. Just my opinion.
What's next?
From now on i'm focusing on learning more stuff offline related to my degree (physics masters) also try learning mathlab and more python. both may help me. that's it guys.
here's the all time earnings

Total expense
= $359.00 $
Total earnning = $213.00
-------------------------------------------

Profit = -146 $

Clearly you lost considerable amount of money, but gained a lot of xp.
All the best for future. Fail and learn, then earn.

Hello, everyone, You probably read my final jorney ' the showdown' which is NOT relying on GOOGLE here https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/s...-affiliate-5000-month-all-or-nothing.1091395/ . That journey is still ongoing and updates is on that thread.

The Parallel Journey - THE REVIVAL

So I mentioned there that I might try to revive this site which earned
2017 - $7.24K :cool:
2018 - $5.31K :cool:
2019 - $267 so far :weep:

But I'm not done with this site yet:mad:. Let's do it!.

statistics

Age - 3.5 years
DA - 19, PA -24
No Penalty, No PBN, Fully whitehat
Niche - General
The site has only 12 pages

What do you think should i do first? I haven't touched this site for an year

Time to give some love to this site. despite being pushed away by google. The site still get's 40-100 visitors per day and make 50-100$ per month. total earnings so far is $623.74. many of the products are not available and many links are broken. i found it using https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/w...nk-to-their-amazon-affiliate-website.1124556/ free trial account. The content is also outdated. no link building campaign. What i'm going to do is

1. update the content first
2. optimize images (I moved it to a new server)
3. link building using free outsources shared by users in this forum. (i can't afford to do paid link building for this site. ) sorry site!
