Site B

So my second website for this project will be called Site B. This is another Amazon related web site I had for couple of years just sitting idle gathering dust. It had around 8 posts and pages. This site is special to me because my very first Amazon earner was a blogspot blog related to this one.

I guess I don't mind revealing the niche. It's about line of cameras. Not a brand or model but it's like lets say DSLR cameras. Long time ago I made a blogger account targeting the a model and has some nice earnings. Not a lot, just like $60 per month. Sadly site was removed from Blogger. Maybe it has too many Amazon ads. But it had plenty of unique and good content. I was doing some quality back link building for that too. Then suddenly I found the site vanish and message saying it's removed because spamming. After that I have never used free blogs for anything serious.

So back to the site, Main keyword is not in domain name. Main keyword has around 18100 monthly traffic as to Adword Keyword planner. Since it's about line of cameras most of traffic comes for model names so I have to target all model names. 

Main keyword phrase has about 13,000,000 results in Google search. First 2 results are Wikipedia and rest is mixer or popular review sites and brand sites. It would be really hard to crack this one but I really have no plan to that either. My plan is to go after model names and accessories.

So lets see what MOZ Open Site Explorer says about the site,


It's a long way to go. Site B needs a solid back-link profile. Domain Authority (DA) is 1/100 and Page Authority (PA) is 1/100. Basically it's not much different from a brand new site. So now lets check what Majestic site explorer says about site B,


There's nothing to show about traffic stats. Site gets one or two visitors per day from Google search and that's all. I think before  start building backlinks, this site need some good content. I should first make at least 24 posts before start working on off site search engine optimization.

Google webmaster tools shows around 56 incoming links from other sites but nothing related to niche. I think this one need some good Web 2 properties and other quality links.

Right now I have home page as an static page rather than showing off blog posts. But I'm not sure if it's working since   I don't see the site anywhere for main keyword. Maybe I should go back to usual system in Wordpress.

This site needs lots of work, if I make a list ,

  • Lots of new Content.
  • Link Profile.
  • Social Media presence. etc.
Site B needs lots of more work than Site A. Site C is not much different from this one either.

About Site A

Basically today I have done nothing. This is my problem. Either getting board fast or get distracted. Only productive thing I have done today was making a post in one of my AdSense sites. Haven't done a single thing for this project. So since I have make my mind to update the Journey blog everyday I thought it's better be something useful. So in this post I will be talking about the main site I have in this project. Which I will call as Site A. I have had this site for like 2 years and it has around 30 posts and pages together.

It's a product name. Not a brand name or model name. Domain has product name in it. In Amazon it's belong to consumer electronics category. Price range is $250 - $20 depending on brands, models and related accessories.

The main keyword phrase has 32,600,000 results in
  1. Amazon
  2. Wikipedia
  3. Dominant Brand site
  4. Dominant Brand site
  5. Another Popular brand site
  6.  (A store site)
  7. (A store site)
  8. Another brand site
  9. A store site
  10. A store site
 Well I hope I will able to reach among top 10 but it's gonna be really hard. These Brand sites kind of have full authority over the niche it will be next to impossible to reach #1 but I don't mind anywhere with first 10 in search result. Monthly search volume for this keyword phrase is around 49500. Write now I'm no where around first 500 places in the search result, I'm sure.

This Product has lots of old and new models by several brands so my plan is to target those. I'm using A free Keyword tracker to called which let you track 25 keywords in it's free version. More than enough for me right now. 

So here's what MOZ open site Explorer says about the root domain,


And Here's what Majestic site explorer says about the root domain,


So you can see things are not exactly promising for now. This site need lots of  link building not just content.  Domain Authority is pretty bad right now. 

Here's Clicks and Impressions from last 30 days from Google search,


It's around 25-30 clicks per day average. Good thing is most of traffic is from USA. That's exactly what I wanted,

So lastly Amazon stats from the begin of February is 52 clicks and 4 items ordered. Total earnings from the Site A is $7.64 so far for the month. So I guess that's all I can tell about the site A. By end of this month stats should be better than this in all areas. That will happen only if I work hard. There are 4 more sites in this project too.

The Beginning

I have been earning money online for over 10 years and I can't say still I'm earning something which I can be happy about. My problem is I'm not focusing enough and not staying with one goal till I reach those. So I thought it's good to start a Journey blog to keep everything accounted. So lets see what's my game plan is,
  • I'm going to make 5 Amazon sites in different niches.
  • Each site will have 30+ pages as start and then continue adding pages.
  • Primary traffic source will be Google Search.
  • Secondary traffic source will be Social Media.
I have these 5 sites already made. Domains are at least 1 year old and all sites have various number of articles already posted. But the problem is since I haven't posted regularly traffic dried out after a while. So main task will be keep posting articles. 

There are 2 methods I have to think about. Either create article for every keyword you find in niche or create articles for low competitive keyword phrases which would rank easily. I hate when I have to choose...

I know the practical method is use low competitive keywords but I think if you are going to make an authority site then you will need to have something about everything.

I have read so many journey threads in various forums and seen people walk into success. Many who has started doing all these long after I have started. So it's high time for me to do something about. 

I have around 20 domains / sites which are ready for Amazon. All need content though. I have picked 4 web sites and still unable to decide on the fifth one. Also I will use different methods to create content.

So thats enough for the this post. In next post I will post all current ranking and traffic stats.
