    Update!

    Seems like no people are following this journey anymore, but I'll still try to post consistently to keep track of my own progress. Yesterday was the day with the highest organic traffic ever recorded. Things are going in the right direction. :)

    [​IMG]

    12 articles have now been posted, and I am still updating old articles. If I still see some growth month-over-month, I will activate Adsense in the end of the month to see if I can start to squeeze some money out of it.

    So blog commenting on high PA relevant content blog does work?
    I ask because blog commenting is seens as lowest quality of link that one can get for his website.

    Update - wow, that was some nice feedback!

    It's very heartwarming to see that people actually keep reading this journey. That gives me some kind of motivation! :)

    Traffic update:

    As you can see below, this was the best week so far in terms of organic traffic:

    [​IMG]

    Let's just hope that we can reach another 30 % growth month.

    Content update:

    - I've fixed a new logo. Some Indian guy on Fiverr gave me a logo that I felt was OK, but might change in the long future. For now it works fine.

    - Still updating old content literally every day. I can already tell that this helps a lot on my ranking.

    - Planning to write at least five articles that will be published in March. I believe that my keyword research skills have improved in 2020 after reading a lot of articles on Backlinko.

    - As I am going on a business trip to China next month, I have been doing a lot of work with the airline companies as they cancelled my first trip. That has taken a lot more time than I expected.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Haha, I guess so! Thanks mate! :)

    Cheers, thank you!

    Cheers, thank you!

    Cheers, thank you!

    You are right. I shouldn't really care about it...I just wondered if my journey actually provided some value to people, but I guess it does now.

    Haha, cheers! :)

    My experience is that it works. Not only to build a more natural link profile, but also for some referral traffic.

    Cheers, thank you!

    Thanks!

    Yes, hopefully I will reach the goal this year. If I can stay consistent with that 30 % growth, it's just a matter of time.

    ~ 220 articles with an average length of 1500 words for each post. :)

    It's here, buddy!

    Don't understand well on this, you claim update old content is add new information right.

    Well, sort of. Let me give you an example.

    If I had a post about how the development of running shoes have supported taking new world records in maraton over the years, I would typically add a section about the new Nike running shoes that seem to dominate the technological development these days. Typically I would add a section like this:

    "UPDATE 2020: Nike launched some new running shoes in early 2020 that is said to revolutionize the market. After various tests, it appears that the new shoes are able to reduce the average maraton run with between 5 and 15 minutes". It's bad English, but you get the point. It also tells the reader that the person taking care of the website is very consistent with 100 % updated information all the time.

    In addition to that, I will update:
    - Pictures
    - Embed Youtube videos
    - Add more things into the conclusion or new paragraphs
    - Add content tables (these help a lot)

    I can now see that articles that never had any traffic suddenly starts to get traffic.

    I always link to old content from new articles - and link to new articles from old content whenever needed.

    Yes, post date and a nice bio about me will always be present. :) Due to my education, I can sort of be seen as an authority in my niche, which is why it's helpful after the BERT update.

    Not yet, but if this becomes another 30 % growth month, I will turn on Adsense in the end of the month. After all, Mediavine/Ezoic demand that you have at least 30 days of Adsense results before applying their program.
