I'm a new member here, despite a decent bit of lurking, so I'm not going to even try to post a link out of sheer respect. I'm not one of those people. And yes, I will actually login and help other people out by giving advice on things I'm experienced with. However, as of right now, I'm the one that's in need of some advice. I have a blog that's a couple years old. It's a blog that focuses on trending topics in practically every niche. I'm the only one working on the site, so I can only do so much with the site. I usually make anywhere from 2 - 5 posts every day, except for on weekends. The posts are typically 300+ words. The site has nearly 1,000 posts on it by now and a decent bit of legit comments. I've never purchased traffic and I've never paid people to come in and post comments. Most of my traffic comes from search engines. I do get some traffic from social media outlets, as well. I used to get over 1,000 UV/day (according to analytics), but my site has started to slip big time. I don't know what caused it, but now my site's only getting around 200-400 UV/day and it's been that way for the past few months. The site is a PR 3, by the way. Despite the fact that I'm not posting any new YouTube videos, I'm still gaining a good bit of views and I also gain new subscribers weekly. It may not be much, but they're still coming in and I'm not going to complain since I haven't put much effort into YouTube as of yet. So, what's my problem and why do I need advice? Well, I'm wondering why my traffic took a major plummet, first of all. Secondly, I've never really monetized the site and I'm not sure which route I should take. I've had people pay for guest posts, but with traffic slipping, I haven't gotten any offers for paid guest posts recently. Adsense doesn't do so well on the site. I've used Amazon and I'm driving a decent bit of clicks to it, but I've only made one sale as of right now. I'd love to make a living off of the site and I could only imagine what I could do with it if I were able to work on it as if it was my full time job, even though I wouldn't see it as a job. I actually enjoy working on the site. I really don't want to give up and I'm not going to give up. I've been doing this type of stuff for a very long time and I understand that way too many people fail, because they only stick to their game plan for a short period of time and end up quitting. If you want success, you have to stick with it and that's what I'm doing. However, as of late, it just seems like I'm going in reverse. I really appreciate any and all advice I get from you guys and gals. If you need any more information, feel free to ask Also... Hi, everyone! I'm glad I finally made the decision to sign up! Get used to seeing me around here.
