So I know what you’re thinking… It’s been over 30 days and we haven’t updated this project. Well, as always we had another hectic month with quite a few things going on. One of the most important things for a business to learn, especially as it grows, is to keep everything organized. Even though we’re working on this, we still have a long way to go. Anyway, lets talk about these sites. So how do they look now after 36 days under our watch.
We’ve been a little behind in our schedule as far as these sites go. For some reason some of our .info sites that we decided to try, ended getting a redirect to our other sites. I haven’t had time to look into this yet, but as a result we won’t be able to report much about the effect of using a .info at this time. We just finished backlinking the last few sites about 3 days ago so many of the sites haven’t shown up in the rankings and are still bouncing around a bit.
The PMD sites that were backlinked using Magic Submitter,probably will not start ranking for another couple of weeks. On the other hand, the EMD sites that are utilizing PAD links are already starting to climb and do well and our first earnings for this batch started showing up about a week ago. If you’re interested in seeing how we build links, you can check out our Backlinking Strategy Here.
Earnings So Far
One very interesting thing is that site #6 has earned $9.13 in the past 5 days. If you look closely you’ll notice that the search volume is only 590 and the CPC $0.83. So this keyword is outperforming the estimated site income by a mile! The site averages about 20 page views per day, which means that the actual search volume might be over 1000. Other things that might be of interest is that the key term is very highly targeted and is using CTR Theme and so far the CTR for this site is at 27%. If this site continues at this pace it may earn a good $60 per month which would make this site worth 2-3 times the investment that we put into creating all 30 of these sites put together. So not bad for a keyword that we originally wouldn’t have touched.
Another site that already seems to be earning well is #7, which has earned $8.70 over the past 5 days. The CPC according to Google Keyword Tool is much lower than our normal cut-off but we went for it anyway. What we’re seeing now is an actual payout of $0.61 per click. This is much higher than we expected and could be due to some new advertisers temporarily bidding high for this keyword. Right now it’s too early to tell if these numbers will stick.
Overall Project Earnings
So far this week these 30 sites have earned us a total of $35.63. If we were to maintain these earnings and not rank any higher for any more keywords, our monthly passive income for the batch would already be at about $140, which means that we’ve already built another $2800 in online real estate. However, i’m sure many more of these will keep ranking and i’m expecting that we’ll break at least $250 per month from these.
Overall, we got off to a slow start, but I’m pleased with our results up until this point. We’re already starting to branch off from a lot of these winning keywords and we’re getting set to launch another hundred or so sites towards the end of this month.
Anyway, we wish you all the best. If you found this post useful at all make sure to click share and like below.
