    Update

    So, I haven't made an update for a while now. Being honest, its procrastination and pure laziness. Its been a fairly tough past week but I'm ready to get going again. Even though the progress I have made since the last update is small, its worth posting about.


    New quizzes

    I've added a few new quizzes to the site, one being a broader niche that I'm going to try with Insta Pages and big facebook groups. The others are niche TV shows/Films etc as usual.


    SEO

    I've been noticing a few new users consistently to the site every day via search engine traffic. Search console shows that I'm ranking top 20 for quite a fair few keywords on some of the older quizzes, I assume they are starting to rank now.

    I ordered 3x 500 word articles for 3 different quizzes that are already ranking decently, choosing the keyword for the content based on the keywords the quiz is ranking off. All 3 articles have come through and I've added 2 to the quizzes and used Yoast to check everything looks good. The 3rd SEO article is for a new keyword that has a couple thousand searches a month yet doesn't have many all in title results, I think this can rank well with a good article. I'm going to order a few quizzes soon and include this quiz in the order.


    February Traffic Payment

    [​IMG]

    I received the payment for the traffic I got during February, totalling $485. I'm going to be using this for more quizzes, more content, and of course more paid traffic.


    Facebook Groups

    [​IMG]

    I've posted in 10 FB groups over the past week or so (Although i'm pretty sure only around 5 posts actually got accepted). This is the traffic I've received from them, not bad! I tested trying a 3rd 300x250 ad unit and I'm unsure of the results due to the little traffic the site actually received, i'm going to try it during a shoutout and therefore much larger traffic volumes.


    Other Changes

    I also added a column in the csv quiz importer add on for Quize that imports photos and adds them to the questions for me. It doesn't work amazing, but well enough for me. I don't want to share the changes due to the possibility of it messing up other peoples plugins and quizzes.


    Future Plan

    I'm going to start to messaging quite a few Instagram pages asking for promotions, the only issue is my insta account keeps getting action blocked, I'm unsure of the best way to get in contact with the pages when action blocked, I might have to only contact the pages that have email.

    I'm going to order a few more quizzes (some being for SEO, some being for Insta pages) and content for the majority of them (mainly for the SEO ones).


    Thanks for sticking around,
    James,

    Good luck on your journey!
    I also started my quiz site, going to try with facebook/instagram ads. I don't expect to have a good profit for now, just learning about it.

    Do you post these articles on your own website or do you publish them on other website to get a backlink?

    Are you using adsense to monetize your website? If you're using adsense, how did you get approved on adsense? Apart from Facebook, what other media channels are your source of traffic? What is your daily traffic right now?

    yeah sure, wordpress.com is a very smart marketing scheme, they are a hosting service that comes with 'wordpress' script installed.. but yeah all those who are new to wordpress are fooled by this site, because obviously who would think that wordpress.org is the actual site rather than wordpress.com . when I was new 2-3 years ago I was stunned how people are able to afford 'wordpress' sites that are soooooooo expensive and yet call it the best, then I understood that 'wordpress' is a script that needs to be installed in a hosting that is a free to use script and provided by wordpress.org and wordpress.com is a hosting site that is ripping people off by choosing a name so reliable.

    The site is so shit that even after charging so much money the flexibility and customization is zero ----> while in a normal wordpress website you can choose to have thousands of themes and plugins, wordpress.com only allows limited 20-30 options, so expensive and no flexibility.. it just rips off new users who learnt that wordpress is very easy to use and want to create a new wordpress website, shit site.. big scam
