January 2014 Income & Niche Site Updates

I’m really late with this post as I have been super busy, but here it is.

January was always going to be slower than December, but I didn’t also expect NS1 to get pushed to the 2nd page in Google. I can only assume that one of the blog networks I purchased got busted and the site lost its link juice. I am focusing on Niche Sites 2, 3 and 7 at the moment. I want to trial slow link building with NS7 and really document my progress, and I also want to get NS2 and 3 back onto the 1st page of Google for some decent search terms.

 

Combined January Niche Site Income Figures

Note: These figures do not include Niche Site 4 as it isn’t a passive income source and is a standalone online store.

This Months Earnings: $100.57
This Months Expenses: $19 (This was paid for usage on all my sites, so no 1 site has this expense against it)
This Month Total: -$81.57

Cumulative Earnings: $373.47
Cumulative Expenses: $2,844.75
Overall: -$2,471.28

 

Note: I have more sites generating income than just the ones featured on this website, and I am using the income from those sites to fund the building of these new niche sites. I also expect that once I get most of these sites to page 1 in the SERPs, that my expenses should go way down.

 

Niche Site 1

Not much to talk about here. We had a big drop in the serps this month and haven’t really recovered. I am almost certain it is a penguin penalty, but I want to see how it plays out without me doing too much to it.

Plans for February

I plan on doing nothing to this site. If I sell one of the items that I am trying to sell then I might pay for someone to write some more content, otherwise i’ll just leave it and see what happens.

 

Niche Site 2

This site is proving to be a little difficult to get to rank, but I haven’t given up hope yet.

Niche Site 3

There are around 10 other niche sites for this topic that have all sprung up on the first page of Google and I am having a hard time breaking in against all the competition. I still hold hope to rank for a few terms, but overall I am thinking this site might not have such a bright future.

Niche Site 5 + 6

I am going to stop reporting on these 2 until I start working on them again. Both have their challenges and I am really far more interested in the other sites at the moment.

 

Niche Site 7

NS7 is going great so far. We started ranking for our brand name really quickly, and even a few long tails are starting to show up.
