    To be honest I really don't care about backlinks. The backlinks the site has is about 184 external links (according to GSC) Most of the links I have gained naturally over the 10 months. Nothing special about them.

    I've took maybe handful of review copies from sellers here at BHW but that's about it.

    My strategy is simple.

    Find keyword under 1000 m/s
    Write mostly buying guides (I use tablepress in all of my posts).
    Try to get visitors as fast as possible over to amazon (Amazon do the work for me)

    My layout is as follows:

    250 word intro
    Tablepress showcasing the pro's and con's of 5 best products
    Buyers guide average: 1000 words
    FAQ

    Average word count: 2000 words


    No fancy stuff or beautiful illustrations.

    Hi. Just want to ask if how many filler contents you have per money keyword/article? Also, how do you interlinking articles? Let's say you have 2 filler content 'How to clean laptop' and 'difference between gaming laptops and normal laptops' for your money keyword 'best laptop for students'. So basically, you will surely link that 2 filler content to the money page. Just want to know if you will also do interlinking from your money page to your filler content?(vise versa) Or you will interlink your money page to other money pages you have?

    Thanks

    I've decided to take a gamble on flippa to sell the site and I received the amount I listed it for within 1 week. So I am just in the process of transfering the site to the new owner. According to flippa the site went for 4.7 times the yearly value.

    Reason for selling: The main keywords that brought in the commissions is not that much and it is mostly keywords that is seasonal and I am in the process of building a new site therefor it will be difficult for me to maintain 2 sites.

    Traffic increased but sales are down.

    So that's it for another short journey Lmao

    The same thing happened with your previous journey haha, in my opinion you just rushed again and you could keep it and grow it and maybe a year from now you will be selling it for even more. Anyway I wish you good luck with your upcoming journeys (hopefully :p).

    If I may ask, how do you know if they are seasonal?

    70%
    of the goods sold is for 3 - 4 months of the year.

    I quote: "The xxxxxx will be xxxxxx during the xxxxxx months and then can be used once the xxxxxx has xxxxx ".

    I will start a new thread.

    Already bought the domain name and hosting and made a beautiful static home page. I am just waiting on my first content orders to get the ball rolling.

    awesome :) looking into this myself at some point. Do you pick a service here to find a good niche or something you're personally interested in to right about??

    I don't understand the quote. But can I understand from this that you can't reach your goal of 500$/m with your sold site?

    I do my own research and pick my own niches. I am not personally interested in the niches I pick.
    The quote is from the manufactures of the specific product which only sells in a certain time of year. Maybe I would have reached the $500 P/M but it would have taken me extremely longer than expected. So I would rather sell it at a point where it's making enough money to sell it for a decent profit.

    I paid $15 for the listing, 10% success fees and $25 for international wire transfer

    So overall I paid $290.
