On October 14, 2014 I started my own blog. At first I had no clue about where the blog was heading (I know this is a mistake, now), but eventually I realized I should write about what I'm passionate about, not just high C P C content. So I love music, listening, reading about it, artists and the whole industry (and no I don't have any talent for music, sadly). And since I wasn't clear of what I was going to write about, sadly, the domain name doesn't have the relevant keywords! I didn't even know how to post on the website until a friend told me to install Wordpress, and I am quite familiar with it now. I have very little knowledge on SEO and I rely on Yoast SEO plugin to get SEO right on each article. So far I have posted 148 articles. I don't know if this is a good or bad number for the two months I have been in operation. But with studies and other personal stuff, this is all I managed to do. As of now I have gone passed the 'daily 100+ views' goal and the blog reaches around 150~ on average. Most of the traffic (around 70-%-80%) comes from Google and the rest from various bookmark sites I have created (Facebook (only 30 likes), Tumblr (400 followers), Pinterest, Twitter (maybe 200 real followers), G+, YouTube.) Music is such a competitive industry to rank for, looking at all the websites in operation. It will be probably impossible for me to beat any of these websites considering that those websites have been in operation for decades and have a lot of authors. I'm an university student and I'm the only author of my blog (for now at least). Maybe I don't want to beat those websites, but rather develop a steady stream of AdSense and Amazon Affiliate revenue from the website. I already have both of them setup on my blog, although I don't know if they are optimized or not. Amazon sales are very low considering most of it (all) are from selling songs ($1.29 a piece at 4% commission). SEO Quake Plugin shows following details for today: PR: n/a I: 529 L: 0 LD: 1 I: 1,040 Rank: 7186185 I: n/a Tw: 2 l: 6 G+1: 286 Rank: 6285898 Density Diagnosis Links: 71 | 30 The website is indexed by Google (shows 764 pages indexed). Content keywords as per GWT is as follows; View attachment 58905 True, most articles are about Taylor Swift since she is the hottest topic in music for 2014. SEMRush shows 8 keywords, and Traffic Travis shows 10 keywords. Total backlinks (around 90%) of them bought are 270 (per GWT) and 613 (Traffic Travis), the latter should be closer to the accurate amount. So there it is, full report of the blog performance for the two plus months in operation. I think I did quite well given the circumstances. But I want to grow-a lot more than this. So is there anything I'm doing wrong? anything I should do more? any new things I should try? Any sort of advice will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!
