    the example is https://www.shouselaw.com/nevada/weaponhub.html, it talks about regulation in a region....actually this is the government job to inform people, but sometimes the government has no time to build website and answer people's question..

    good luck... i'm working with blue in my face lately.... i hope you get more things done after this

    i just targeting micro topic at a time, for example keyword "can i bring loaded gun in nevada" if i can rank and get traffic from this keyword, i just wrtite another article "can i bring loaded gun in arizona" and other region.

    now i have written 55 articles and all of them are only cover 2 micro topic similiar with keyword "can i bring loaded gun", but you must be careful because your article can be caniballing each other

    i start to put adsense on my site, but the code is not mine, i join and JV adsense, and the page speed dropped like hell. i want to make it faster bus still dont find the way..

    i have install litespeed cache, use rel preload for my font, i use small image, and only use one adsense async js. but still the speed score is less than 50 via google pagespeed insight.

    It depends on the competition and the search volume...

    But on average, it is 800-1000 words per article...

    But if the keyword i target is on super low volume, i post like <400 words and still can rank... it means below 100 searches a month

    13 february, domain age 49 days. articles 57, Backlink 37,

    yesterday i do some optimation to my website, i add internal linking plugin that anchoring to my homepage with my main keyword as anchor, and i also put some external link to my main articles to improve trustworthiness..

    and i see my traffic start to spike one more time.. it seems that today it will gain 550 to 600 pv. i hope that tomorrow it will improving

    Screenshot_168.jpg

    Ranking Report
    my ranking is spiking, i got 22 of my articles are ranking on page 1 google, and 15 of my articles are on pag 2 google. 4 articles are rank #1 and 2 of them are winning featured snippet.



    i also create 2 articles with less than 200 words count, targeting super low competition, at the first day it rank no #1 directly, but after 3 days, i see the rank is decreasing to rank #6.
    I think if i don't add value to these articles, the rank will decreasing..

    eventhough it is only 200 words article, but the information that i deliver is legit...

    so maybe i will use it as my case study

    You are doing good start ! That niche site is specialized so not many people can write about it.
    It's may be too early to say this but if you do well, then this kind of your website can grow very fast that even you can't expect. In Vietnam i live, 5 out of 10 most viewed websites are about political news as yours (although some tweak a bit like include entertain news, social news,etc), roughly 100M views/month.

    Just remember two most crucial factors about news site is Latest and Accurate so maybe when your site grows more you can consider collaborate with other people to write articles. Then in the long future, if your site make decent money, you can really think about doing serious business with it.

    I will follow your journey, Good luck !

    24h-com-vn, vnexpress-net, news-zing-vn, kenh14-vn Here you go. Just replace the hyphen with dot as i am a new user so i cannot add link. Among those, the vnexpress is most specialized in political news. You can use similarweb (maybe you already know) to check the traffic.

    I am starting to write a website about computer hardwares, hope it can make money to help me pay college fee. Anyway, goodluck to both of us.
