As promised, I wrote a quick little guide about the new A.I. tool I am using to create new content/posts and I am also using it to improve what I already have.

You can find the thread here - https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/how-to-overcome-writers-block-using-conversion-ai-a-i-software-referral-link-inside-for-10k-word-credits.1310213/




Products are ranging from ~$40 - ~$400 (some premium products are higher priced, but I tend to aim for the 50$ to 200$ range for what I try and sell)
So you order the products and test it?

March 10, 2021 Update:

I finally completed my Best X for X post and optimized its on-page SEO and also silo'd it from the other posts I had that mention the products. It ended up being around 3700 Words. It has good info + there are videos included for each product that goes into even more details.

I also pumped out an 1100 word post within an hour with the help of Conversion.AI - Made a post about it here

Some of my rankings went from 4 to 2 which is awesome, I still have a couple of posts still ranked #2 and they just will not budge and I'm 99% confident that I can't do much more than getting as many links as can at this point.
I cannot optimize the on-page stuff anymore and I am always trying to pass link juice to it from other posts from my site that refer to it.

I am going to try to pump out smaller helpful posts just to get some more traffic rolling in the site once the posts rank. Typically the stuff I have been posting has been getting ranked pretty quickly, but the past month or 2, Google doesn't want to rank them yet. Guess I'll need to let them age a bit and see where they end up.

From March 1st to March 9th, I am sitting at around 250$ USD for the month in earnings. My Consodilation Report is all messed up and Amazon is looking into fixing it as it only shows my UK account in there instead of All of them (US, CAN, UK) - They will email me back once they find out what is causing the issue, hopefully soon.

Good luck on your journey. I will be following this thread

Awesome, hope I don't disapoint.

Dude thanks for the detailed info about what your doing and how. I'm new around here and this place seriously kicks ass compared to BBF.

Glad to hear it. If you have questions, don't be shy.

So you order the products and test it?

Some products I buy and test, but some older stuff that have plenty of reviews and videos about them I tend to get a good grasp of how it works and write my own review about it just based on how it works from watching/reading everything.

April 1st, 2021 Update:

I hit 1k again in total (combined) for the whole month of March, but just barely.

See stats below:

Combined Total:
March 2021 1k Total.png

US Stats:
March 2021 USD.png

CANADA Stats:
March 2021 CAD.png

UK Stats:
March 2021 UK.png


It's definitely thanks to that Canadian buyer though for going crazy during that 1 day. But I think they only brought ~160 USD in total to my total which I would've ended up at around ~850$ USD in total instead of 1007$ USD

Currently, I got a package for diversity links as I had too many exact keywords backlinks point back from my site from the services I got (even though I had asked each one to use the site name for most of them) Hoping the links help raise my rankings a bit.

I finally got settled in using that new AI tool I was working with and they finally released an unlimited long-form version of it so I jumped on that as now I can just pump out content to my standards instead of paying other writers to do so. I had made a thread about it here

I'm currently trying to get posts up every 2-3 days for this month given the time constraints I still have.

I don't have any plans to buy any more links right now for the future, I am waiting for my Diversity Links drip to be completed mid-month and then might try to get more links in May.

I am debating If I should sell my site as is though and try to start something else from scratch as I know what I would need to do to get going a lot quicker + with my new tool it'll be way easier to get content going. I don't have much time to do a huge amount of research into my keywords as it's a very technical niche and I don't want to give people the wrong information about the stuff I write about either.


Dude. This is a great thread. Would you mind dming me one if your sites? I am getting into this and just curious about the content angles you're taking. Feel free to say no. Thnx for this post. Lots of gems in here.

I'm happy you find this great. I will not be providing my site (I only have one right now). I just want to protect my investment that's all, don't take it personally.

April 5th, 2021 Update:

Just a short update today, I was able to get a ~2500 word article out a couple of days ago, and it is already ranking on the First Page, which is nice.


The previous post I also did has started ranking for a bunch of keywords for the first page as well. Shown Below

Position Rank increase.png



Here are my rankings lately since I've been optimizing my articles with SurferSEO and Conversion.AI.

Position Rank increase2.png

I will keep searching my competitors and seeing what keywords they have and see how I can write something better and outrank them if possible.


So far this month, I am sitting around ~90$ USD from April 1st to the 4th. Some of my items haven't been shipped yet, and I am assuming it is a little slow because of the Easter weekend we just had.

My rankings are getting better, so I hope to see more traffic willing to buy.


If there are other questions, please don't hesitate to ask or give feedback!

On a side-note for people interested in this thread:

Would people be interested if I showed my process in a video, from picking a keyword to using conversion.ai and SurferSEO to make an article?
(It would not be anything related from my site, but just in general how I go about creating my posts - it would be a generic keyword, people could even give me one as a test - something with a low enough volume like 100-500 would be decent to try and get as long as the search intent is good)

Just something I am thinking about, I could upload it on YouTube. It would take a bit, though, to find the time to record everything. If there is enough interest, I will do it. If not, I will just write about it.

Yes please, most of the beginners like me don't jump into the process of blogging because they are stuck with the keyword selection and doubt themselves when it comes to the writing.

April 11th, 2021 Update:

The month is going well so far. I was able to get 2 more posts out this week. Nothing fancy, though.

My income so far is on track to land around 800+ USD this month (April 1st to April 10th Income):
April 1-10th 2021 Income.png

With the new Google algorithm out, it seems like my ranks are still holding, but it seems like my traffic is down (around 20-25%).

Not sure if it's just a busy weekend for everyone or if it will rise back up after.

I will keep writing more posts with conversion AI and try to just pump out content for a while before jumping on another service for links.

There are a couple of posts I made that I will likely change the keyword on as there are better alternatives out there now with 7x the search volume and I rank higher for it than I do my own keyword without even having it in the post. Atleast SurferSEO will help to get them optimized.

I'm debating changing the URL to match the keyword and redirect the old URL to it. We'll see.

Definitely! Please do that :)

It seems there was interest in what I was offering.

I wouldn't mind if someone gave me a niche keyword that I could use to find something to write about to save time. (I will use my keyword research to find a good keyword based on the niche given to use in a post)

Maybe keep it simple?

It has been hectic lately around the house, and with another 4-week lockdown going on, my local business is taking priority right now to keep clients coming. So this video will take a bit to get up and going.

Really cool, man!

How much traffic are you getting daily or monthly?

Are you going to sell the site or are you planning on growing it?

Do you film the videos for your articles yourself?

Do you have some suggestions on how you are using conversion.ai?

The content they produce is great but I'm having issues finding ways to get enough content for 600-1k+ words articles when using longtail keywords.

April 13th, 2021 Update:

Nothing really new to report. I had a family weekend + one of my kid's birthdays, so I spent most of the time hanging out and having fun.

It did let me think of a few ideas for myself and my website.

1. I might make a 2nd website and crosspost my journey into more details. It would be like a tutorial website of what tools I used and how I used them to get my website to where it's at. (like a big case study)

2. I'm still debating if I should sell my site or keep it. I'm not sure if I could actually get a good deal for it as it just recently started hitting over 1k per month, and they usually want a good track record.
The reason being is: the only time I get to work on it now is past 10 PM Eastern, and it's rough trying to get into a mindset to research at that time for my specific niche (tech/gaming - needs well-researched info)

Nice Sharing
Thanks

No problem, I hope it helps to show that with good on-page optimization and good research, a smaller website can give some good income.

how many all articles are published now

27 Posts and 3 massive page Guides

This is a successful a journey. How much do you make in profits because it is obvious you do some spending for seo?

The only thing I was spending for SEO was for Niche Edits in hopes that I get better rankings out of them which they have been helping.

I have/had a write that would cost me around 60-100$ per article and they were very good and well researched. But I had to optimize it afterwards anyway, but now I just do it myself with the tools I have (Conversion AI and SurferSEO)

All in all last year, with everything I spent on it, I "lost" 1700$ (Based on Webhosting costs, tool costs, writers, services, etc.)

If you look in the thread, I showed my last year's income for my site, but because my site and rankings improved so much it should be a lot better going forward, the foundation is built.

great t o see+++

Thanks

I'm looking forward to this.

Not sure which post? I did have one before but had asked a mod to remove it.

Great journey man!

Do you film the videos for your articles yourself?

I do not, I tend to find videos that have a good insight on the subjects and embed it, just to provide the end-user with more media about the topic.

Great Journey. Keep up the hard work!

Thanks.

Do you have some suggestions on how you are using conversion.ai?

The content they produce is great but I'm having issues finding ways to get enough content for 600-1k+ words articles when using longtail keywords.

It's tricky to get used to it because the software is in its infancy stages, but it's still a great tool otherwise.

It needs help from other tools to get the job done properly I find, but it can def hold its own for informational blog posts.

1. I use Semrush to find out what my competitors are ranking for, I check the SERP search intent/ranking info/page authority, etc)
2. I pop the word into SurferSEO and do an audit so I can see how many words I need to write for said article and then I adjust the settings based on the competitors I choose. There's also a tab in there that lets you see what their headers/topics of discussions are. These are what I pop into Conversion AI to get the best talkative points.
3. I generate content with Conversion AI long-form editor and all the other templates and just populate my articles as I go. If I am stuck, I check out all my competitor pages I'm trying to rank against to get extra ideas to write about.

If I do go through with my 2nd website, it will have all this information in WAY better detail.

Damn yea I don't have access to SurferSEO so it does make it a bit harder for me hahaha.

For "Conversion AI long-form editor" you mean the "Sentence expander" or "Content improver"? I don't see any template named long-form editor
