Income Report: Update #7

By Last updated on July 9, 2015

This month’s income report is a little bit later than normal. The last few weeks have been really busy working on some big changes/updates for Authority SEO.

It will most likely be rolled out in a few weeks or so as I still have a lot to do, but existing members will be receiving a nice surprise very soon.

What happened in June?

It was a pretty laid back month.

Apart from working on the course, my main blog was the only other thing I really spent time on work-wise.

The site has gotten to the point now where the majority of new content published is based on popularity and current events, and not keyword research.

I’m already targeting just about every major keyword in my niches.

I have a list of about a dozen related niches I want to target next, but I just haven’t been able to do that yet.

Instead, it’s mainly been about pumping out content to increase traffic and take advantage of my domain authority.

That’s something I never want to stop doing. Once you grow a site to this level, you should be creating new content and trying to rank for everything, because it’s just so profitable to do so.

That’s exactly the reason why I have this list of related niches to expand into. It will open up opportunities to go after a whole new set of keywords.

One of the great things about June was that I fully realized the benefits of having a full-time writer. I didn’t write a single piece of content for the site, but 25 posts were published on the site.

What I was focused on was link building.

There are still some newer keywords that aren’t in the top 3 rankings yet, and I really want to work on those because they’re fairly big keywords and my pages that are targeting them have very few links pointed at them.

I’m pretty sure that with just a small nudge, I’ll be able to jump to #1 based on my current rankings, and what I’m seeing from my competition.

Building links that don’t cause me stress

For most people, having a site rely so heavily on Google traffic would be kind of stressful. For me, it should be twice as nerve-wrecking since my blogs are my main source of income both online and offline.

But, I’m really not worried at all, and that’s because of the content and link building model that I use. It’s why I emphasize so heavily on building links the right way.

As long as I’m getting the types of links that I’ve been getting, and my content is high-quality, then I really don’t have a big risk of being penalized.

Once you build up authority the RIGHT WAY, it’s hard to lose it, even if you try.

That’s the model that I hope everyone building blogs today is following because it’s the only one that is truly sustainable, and probably one of the only ones that gets stronger over time rather than die off down the line.

What kind of links was I building?

All of it was done through outreach. It was a mix between broken link building, and just plain old email outreach.

The search queries used in broken link building isn’t JUST for broken link building. They’re used to find resource pages, and resource pages are some of the easiest to get links on.

You don’t always need to find a broken link on the page to land a link. It increases your chances, yes, but it’s not always required.

Why? Because all they need to do is include you in the list. The list is already made up. By adding your site to it, they’re improving their list.

It’s not like they need to write a feature about you or somehow change up their wording in a piece of content to include your link.

Some people think outreaching for links is boring or tedious, but it’s really not.

Once you get used to it, you’re able to find strong link prospects quickly, and each link you acquire is a big milestone since it’s actually going to impact your rankings.

Record traffic, record earnings

Everything is cruising along with the main blog with no signs of slowing down.

Traffic didn’t increase a ton, but as long as it’s not in decline I’m happy about it.

The blog received 872,043 visitors in June, which is so great to see it rise steadily every month.

Honestly, more than the earnings, that’s the thing I’m happier about… the consistent traffic growth month over month.

I think I remember saying that I would reach my first million visitor month to the site within August or something like that before… but I don’t think that’s going to happen.

With the SEO course I now have on my plate on, I wasn’t able to work on the blog as much as I had planned and therefore wasn’t able to start expanding it into new niches and targeting more big keywords.

At the rate it’s going now, I could safely assume that at least by the end of the year I will reach that goal.

But if I find time to work more heavily on the site and scaling it out, it could be much sooner.

June’s Income Report

Okay, so now on to the income report.

Here’s the total income numbers for the month of June.

Blogging Income: $19,141.05

Last Month: $16,897.53
Difference: +$2243.52

What will I do in July

To think that the blog is less than a year old and has already grown to this level is crazy. It’s simply just not profitable to do anything else anymore on any of my other blogs.

Any time I spend working on another blog, the same time spent working on this blog is multiple times more profitable.

I’ve decided to put the other projects that I wanted to start on hold for now. I think it would be foolish of me to pour all my time and effort on a new site when this one is still in its growing stages and has so much potential to be grown out further.

In July, I’ll continue to build more links to the site, and work more on promotion. But more than that my first priority right now is to complete the new updates to Authority SEO.

There’s a huge list of to-do’s before it will be complete so let’s hope I can get some work done.

    Hi Chris,

    Congrats for achieving more success continuously. I love you blog and its gives me ton of information. I already bookmarked it and came to know you blog about thru Facebook.

    I also read your course. Its amazing. You gives me a new way of thinking about keyword research and using. I have few questions, kindly answer me as I already commented before may be you hadn’t read. My question is you haven’t shared an example of pillar post in course. Can you share good nice blog and example of pillar post.

    What is minimum keyword search volume, you’ll suggest for starting a niche blog, let say my main keyword searches are 18000 per month and if including my other secondary keywords are upto 45000 per month, would be it okay ?

    Thanks.

    Hey Chris, great update and good decision to leave the other niche sites alone and double down on the one that is bringing home the bacon.

    I need to do some o that myself, regrouping is good and I feel I am starting to spread myself too thin.

    The site sounds like it’s going very well, I guess it a case of authority links and increasing traffic and revenue per 1k visitors now?

        Can you please suggest some good online course specifically targetting to develop SEO skills? as many of your readers like me don’t have such background.

        I have studied online material on SEO and applied it on my websites too but I want a thorough course from start to end.

          Hey Imran,

          The biggest reason I got that job was because I had niche sites of my own I had successfully ranked. I was actually doing SEO on my own and producing results, which stood me out from the other people who knew a bunch about it but had no experience with it. The best thing you can do is start building your niche sites. Everything you need to know about SEO can be found online.

    Holy wow! Almost $20k now just from Adsense. That is ridiculous!

    Your brief explanation of your link building process has given me some ideas and motivation to try the same for some of my sites. I have several niche sites that are only ranking okay for some of their keywords and only earning a modest income each month. With just a few great links like the ones you describe – I know my earnings will skyrocket. I might have to take a month or two to just focus on nothing but white hat link building and outreach. Something I’ve never given much thought to.

    Thanks for the awesome update and source of motiviation!

    Great post. Your site seems to be a huge success.

    Great job Chris! Your income growth on a monthly basis is really impressive.

    I’ve been reading your posts about looking for bigger searches instead of those with smaller monthly searches and it’s definitely eye opening.

    I hope you can shed some light on making content for the niches you provided in the free download.

    For example, I want to start a niche site on skateboarding. My intuition is to search Google Keyword Planner on all the big keywords about skateboarding and learning how to, as well as what you need safety and instructions.

    Is this the ‘right’ type of content to fill the site with?

    I got a bit confused from your post at Matthew Woodward’s site where you mention to look for popular content which tends to be less of the how to’s or informational but more of lists and viral stuff.

    Hope you can explain going about it. Would love to start trying your method out.

          Akismet plugin seems to handle wp comment spam pretty well. I don’t know of any tool to do anything like akismet with fb chat, but for wp… akismet is pretty impressive at filtering out spam.

          Although…. I think akismet makes mistakes sometimes and filters out non-spam comments too because there are some legitimate comments on RankXL that get passed off as spam.

    Hi Chris,

    Awesome report and amazing success! I’m more of an Amazon Associates guy but now you’ve got me intrigued by AdSense.

    I was wondering if you had anything on the blog regarding the importance of niche selection.

    The reason I ask is because I remember both Spencer over at Niche Pursuits, and the Authority Hacker guys talking about their authority sites and trying to monetize with AdSense.

    The AH guys run the site Health Ambition, in the health niche obviously, and they have talked about how they grew the site naturally and were getting loads of traffic and rankings, but the AdSense money did not follow really; they just weren’t making a lot despite the traffic. (Now they have started selling their own products, and are making more).

    Spencer never revealed his authority site, but he had spent months on it building content but could never monetize it either.

    So I was just wondering what your thoughts were on this — and how vital picking the right niche is. You would think having great traffic and rankings in a niche like health would = loads of AdSense money, but for whatever reason it didn’t happen.

    Cheers,
    Mike

      Chris Lee
      July 12, 2015 at 3:29 pm

      Hey Mike! Some niches like health might be more suitable for Amazon, affiliate products, or creating your own product. For instance, I think Spencer shared his shaving site with Perrin, which was monetized through Amazon and that was probably a better fit for it. I haven’t dabbled too much in Amazon myself, so I can’t compare the thought processes that go into niche research when building a site around the monetization method.

      But once you have the traffic, you can test these things. Adsense always works; there just might be more profitable options if you’re willing to test them. I know of Health Ambition and they do seem to be running Adsense but look like they’re expanding into a lot more product related methods. I’m sure with the traffic that site is getting, they could make a lot of money off of Adsense alone, but in the health niche there are plenty of products they can promote and even create their own products which, if tested properly, can produce much higher RPM’s for them.

      For researching the right monetization method BEFORE you build the site… it’s probably best to see what your competitors are doing. For instance, if it’s a niche with really high CPC keywords, but every competitor is promoting an affiliate product or amazon product, there’s probably a reason why. You can always start with Adsense and start expanding into other areas after building your traffic.

        Thanks for the reply, Chris — that makes sense. I was listening to the Authority Hacker podcast the other day — their most recent one, where they give an update on Health Ambition — and they talk about how much difficulty they had monetizing with AdSense, which is why I asked the question.

        One other question I had: I know in your keyword research, you’re looking for terms that have a LOT of monthly searches — are these local or global searches, exact match or broad?

        Also, do you pay any attention to the advertising competition tier and CPC numbers in the Google Keyword tool?

        Sorry for the noob questions — as I mentioned, I’m an Amazon guy and am pretty new to AdSense.

        Thanks!

          Yeah, that’s pretty surprising. My guess would be that was based in comparison to their estimated revenues for doing other things like affiliate marketing and product launches. Always exact match, with global.

          I do pay attention to CPC, but for me traffic volume is much more important than the CPC.

          No problem, I would have a bunch of noob questions myself if I ever started experimenting with Amazon 🙂

    I agree with Chris here. My plan is to choose a type of niche that I will first focus on info-related keyword and monetized with Adsense. If it does not work out well, I will switch to Amazon. I guess with this amount of traffic that Christ is getting, it would be easy to make money off with Amazon as well. Also, do not forget to collect emails. They can be super handy when you are going to make your own product. Just my 2cents

    Jesus, this is huge income.
    I’m on 4 figures income with my niche sites and I thought that’s huge.

    Keep up mate.

    so cool chris, I totally want to embark on a journey similar. I’ve got a question, do you have students who’ve grown sites, maybe not as large as yours – but on their way. Case studies, or testimonials?

    Wish you all the success ever Chris.

      Hey David. Yeah, I have quite a few, but I need to add them into the sales page somehow.

    Chris, I appreciate you publish these reports but I’m afrid without a screenshot or any proof how can someone trust that one is making $19,141.05

    What if I I made $21,086.56 in Jun 2015 will you trust me?

    I’m not skeptic but you know on internet anyone can say this that I’m making in 5 figures but without some kind of proof it’s seems unrealistic. It’s not realistic to make 5thi much money but without a proof it seems…

    Now you might not approve my comment but I’m really serious abut your course so I am supposed to ask a question which holds me back. Surely you can say this that Adsense doesn’t allow to share your check screenshot or so but even in that case how to believe that one is making $19,141.05 if so then please consider that I’m making $21,086.56 approx. every month and it’s growing.

    Looking your answer.

      Hey Robbin,

      You’re right, and understand where you’re coming. Anybody on the internet can claim they make a million dollars online.

      I share my income reports now for inspiration to readers and because for me personally, I like to record my progress online as a form of diary and I’ve learned a lot about myself doing so.

      With the reputation that the internet marketing community has, I understand there will be people who doubt whatever I write. But that’s fine. The income reports aren’t to convince them about anything. It’s just something I enjoy doing. If people are able to get some inspiration from them, then cool. If not, then that’s fine as well.

      If you’re making $21,086.56 a month, then that’s awesome. Great work.

    Hey Chris!

    Just signed up to your newsletter and am reading through your blogs. I have years of experience with adsense sites. It’s always interesting to see the different approaches people take.

    Link outreach has always been something I haven’t touched since of the time it seems to take. Are you using something like Buzzstream, or do you do it manually? Would like to hear more about your process!

    If you ever need to scale the number of articles you put out each week, please drop me a line. I have a team of 50+ American writers!

      Hey Vin, just checked out your website. Looks really good. I do use a few tools, Buzzstream included. I’ll be writing more about that in the future.

        Sounds great.

        I bought your course the other day and am using it on a new site I’m building out. I usually rank niche sites for 3 months to 1 year and then flip them. Going to try and make this one a multi year project.

        I have a few questions about how you set up your navigation, but I’ll hit you up in the course contact for that.

    Hi Chris,

    I just found your blog a week ago and find it very useful on my plan in building an authority niche blog in near future.

    Wait, I have a question.

    Is it possible to rank a high quality article without building a single link to it?

    By the way, congrats Chris.

      For a new site, no. But once you build links to your site and strengthen your domain authority, new pages built on that domain can rank without links.
