    Background

    So, I've had a website kind of sitting in the background for just over a year. I wanted to create an authority blog last year, so I decided to do it in something I would find reasonably easy to write about.

    So, the website has been sitting doing nothing for quite a while now. It had plenty of content on it, and receives about 100 visitors per day.

    The long term plan is to get enough traffic to benefit from affiliate sales, email marketing etc. You get the idea.

    So. I'm using "Ahrefs" as a metric tracking system. To sort of track my progress. I don't want to rely on money and visits alone as a metric.

    The Facebook page for the website currently has approximately 1,200 likes. But very little involvement from the people who like it.

    The Plan!

    So, my current plan is to simply get back into a habit of creating content for the website. My perfect scenario would be to get around one article per day created. But I'm currently very busy with University, so that may not be exactly 'do-able' for the next couple of weeks as I finish off my exams

    Advice Welcome!

    I'm happy to take any input from you guys. I specialise in Online Marketing, but at the same time, I'm definitely not an expert, and having an input from you guys will make this journey a little more interesting.

    Final Goal

    The final goal is to get to a stage where the website is making $1,000 per month. PROFIT.

    Good luck with your journey buddy. The best advice that I could give you is to stay consistent. Keep posting and eventually everything will fall in its place!

    Not sure why did you expose your keywords above? Better remove it OP.

    As said above, remove the niche in the OP.

    Good luck on your journey! You will make it. :)

    Mostly just because it would allow people to see how my ranking etc was progressing. But I can see the downsides too. It's been removed.

    Atleast you have a nice base to start from. What are your earnings currently from 100 visitors a day?
