Last weekend I finally started out on my “passive income” dream as hinted at in my previous post. I built my very first niche site. In Dutch, and on a search term that gets just under 1k local monthly searches with a CPC above $1. A related search term gets 6k locals a month and a CPC of well over $4. I added some content, dove deep into SEO and started looking for ways to build links. Naturally I’ll be targeting both keywords.
Link building is quite hard though, especially in Dutch as -as far as I know right now- there are no article directories to submit to and very few blogs on the subject to comment on.
Nevertheless I’ve managed to already hit the top op page 3 with my chosen keyword having the 1k hits. Although this has not resulted in any google traffic yet, The other places I’ve dropped a link (A forum and two blogs) have resulted in just over 90 paviews and my first Adsense dollar. I haven’t found my site via the other keyword yet, but it shouldn’t take to long to get in the top ten pages at least. Well, you have to start somewhere.
More to come obviously, but I might just manage to get on page one by the end of this month as I keep adding content and doing the best I can on SEO.
Also, I deleted my facebook account as I hardly ever use it. I’m now trying out google+ and you can find me here: Christiaan Hillen
Well, that was a quick update. More changes are on the horizon and getting closer.
So what are you up to?
