Day 463 – Update!
Doug’s the man..
As you know by now, I decided to take an extended break from this website…Even when I achieved a full time income online, I did not stop updating/working to fully enjoy what I’d done, so I figured now was the time to do that.
I thought about coming back and making a small update post, but then realized I’d likely just get pulled back into updating my site, something I didn’t want to do just yet..so I completely took this site off my mind and did not check in on it for the past month.
Sorry to those who had posts caught in ‘pending’ status…People who have at least made 1 post are put on the auto-approve list (unless a word triggers it to go to pending)…Then of course there are spam users/posts that wind up in the trash. I usually add new posters manually to an auto approve list, but was not around to do that.
After taking this break, there is one thing that I’ve learned, even at this stage in the game… it is ‘still’ beneficial to keep yourself accountable via something such as a daily blog as it does help you to get more work accomplished.
Regarding the past month, I have intentionally not worked on my business as much as I normally would, however I do have two writers who continue to produce content for my sites on a daily basis. A lot of this content is made to expand out a lot of my sites which are at 5-6 pages to 10-11 pages…I’m now at a point where I’ve had all that extra content written out for about 80-100 of my sites and I’m in the process of posting those up. After this I’m going to focus on building up the writing on a select few(20 or so) websites. The focus has mainly been on content lately, I’m going to have my hands full when I get around to backlinking..
One other thing to note is that I’ve found my adsense income has picked up since around the beginning of August. In June, when the Google change hit the sites, it was at an average of around $71/day…Now for the first 10 days of August it seems to be around $85/day on average. The main reason for this is due to an increase in eCPM. What caused this? I’m not 100% sure…backlinking is usually the cause for increases in income, however the only thing I’ve done with regards to backlinking were the UAW re-submits.
BTW, at the moment I don’t have any plans to do any structured updating, so updates/me checking in may be sporadic, although that may change down the road…
And again, in the meantime, feel free to talk in the comments below :>
