Someone asked me yesterday day what I thought the key to starting a new blog was. When used to write my old blog I would make sure to write a post about every headline in the news and try and relate it to my website. It was all about numbers, traffic. I would bold keywords and try and target titles for Google instead of me. I was so worried about traffic that I put up all this garbage that had nothing to do with my site. I tried to make it relate but it was forced. I felt like I had to post several times a day to keep up the traffic. And then I realized. 99 percent of those people that accidentally came from Google could care less about my site and had no interest. There were much better ways to build traffic (for a whole other post) But in general, if I did a good job writing they would eventually come and advertisers would know that my readers were 100% who they were trying to attract. I have exactly half of the readers as I had two years ago after Google took me off the ranking for a bunch of keywords. But the keywords they nixed were completely unrelated to domains and ruined the bounce rate, the click through rate…..all the numbers. Now I make twice as much through affiliate as I did and I have even more great advertisers. Because I am doing what I love and writing how and what I want. I don’t cater to Google, pretend like I’m a team of writers, and am not going to change what I’m doing to please them. They’ll find me if they want to find me. I am in a different place than some blog writers as I don’t have to make a living at this. I don’t HAVE to have traffic. Sure I want good traffic but if 100 people came and the money I make warrants the time I put in, then this blog continues. Sorry for going on a rant but they also asked me why I didn’t write more this year and I said “Because I didn’t feel I had anything important to say” His response. “That hasn’t stopped anyone else on the Internet”.
