    Progress Update

    3 months and 1 week have now passed and things continue to head in the right direction! A new 1300 word article on a product just went up, with a couple more to follow this week plus some informational articles I have ready to go which I'll spread out throughout the next 7 days.

    [​IMG]

    Much the same in GSC, with CTR improving this week.
    More of my backlinks have been picked up, including my Amazon dof0llow backlink! I'm sure in a few weeks or so that's going to do wonders for me.

    Can't show my Ahrefs status as I ditched my subscription today. I really have all the information I need from there for now saved and £180 is just money that can be put to better use. Might pick up some $7 trials as and when I need them. I was to 1.8k organic keywords this morning, +400 more.

    Earnings

    The clicks are coming! No conversions yet. That first sale is coming. I feel like the figures are good for such a new website. Things can only get better here.

    [​IMG]

    The number of users continues to rise. Need to figure out how I can keep my visitors more engaged though, 37 seconds is loooow. Really random drop considering the layout etc hasn't changed in the last seven days!

    Rankings
    [​IMG]

    Continuing to bounce around! The '30 days' and 'Life' columns are super encouraging though. It's all heading in the right direction here. Just needs time.

    Content
    A couple new articles are heading over to my writer this morning. Some more informational articles from myself heading up in the next week too. Just keeping a consistent flow coming to keep things looking good in G's eyes.

    Off Page SEO
    My link from @MisterF and @WebMinati looks super good, I'm really happy with it! Can't wait to see the effect it will have in a few weeks or so. Also got some strong strong links coming from @Hetneo which I'm excited about too.

    A nice win on the football (soccer) betting helped me push the boat out a bit more in the last week in terms of quality links! Reinvested the winnings wisely, lol.

    Summary
    Continuing to push in the right direction! Excited to see what the future holds. I feel like I'm doing all the right things and it's just a question of maintaining that flow.
    I have some spare holiday to use at work which I may use in the next few weeks so I can spend some days going over the website with a fine-tooth comb, seeing where I can improve etc!

    :)

    Just a mini update - September has started nicely!! :) Really encouraging to see orders coming in through my content! Not all orders related to my niche but some were and they were the more expensive items.

    Just looking to build my sites authority at the moment with some high quality links. One order is processing now and I'm placing another one shortly. We'll see how that effects things. Rankings are still jumping around but some priority keywords are on the cusp of Page 1.

    Exciting!​

    GREAT journey so far and wish you well......

    Are you able to share who is writing your content, is there a writer here on this forum? I am looking for a quality writer...thanks....

    I used to have my work done by natashanixon dot com, but they are not longer around, I really miss quality content at a low price

    Quick for 2019 SEO I guess, lol! Feels like I've been working on it for years and it's not even four months yet. Thank you.

    Quality content and clear call-to-action really! Think it's that simple. Give the visitor content they enjoy and clearly point out where they can go to buy the product.

    Awesome! Thanks for reading. :) Football/Soccer is my main sport but I had a great vacation to Calgary in my early teens, took in a Flames game and followed ever since!

    Great progress so far!
    Sorry for the noon question but could you tell me how did you do the keyword research? Like what is your keyword difficulty and search volume?
    Good luck with your site

    I actually bought these keywords from the Marketplace here around two years ago! I'm 100% sure it was easier to rank them then than it is now but they still looked definitely achievable and it's started well.

    The main keyword is 1600 searches, and the ones I've targeted around it are:

    Following man, goodluck.

    I may have missed it but how many articles/words do you have in total?

    Thanks for the updates!

    5 main articles, all 2000+ words each, going to be expanding that to nearer 4000 over the course of this month to beat my competitors totals. There are 12 other articles on the site at the moment, all 1200+ words, I try to add one or two each week, both product review and informational, I mix it up really.
