Let me disagree with you for a second - I think it does matter which theme you choose for affiliate marketing. It's SUPER important to do A/B split testing, track clickthroughs, etc and a good niche site theme can make that all much…"
"I read something the other day that said for affiliate and niche sites, a clean look is death - they recommended that you put as much content and as much interlinking as you can on the front page to drive interaction and increase conversions. I…"
"Sorry late to respond, I've been traveling and wanted to think through my response a bit before diving in.
From my perspective, the One-a-Day strategy doesnt fit in with my current content strategy.
My site, a product review site, has a…"
"Quick update on my site EDC Knife Reviews:
I am now getting about 40-50 visits per day. I see most of my traffic coming in from Forum Comments (not blog comments) or organic search. I have not really participated in Social Media much except…"
"I was on the webinar, but got frustrated with all of the psychobabble talk and nothing about The Challenge - I bailed about 30mins in.
What are your thoughts? I took it that they wanted to capitalize off Tim Ferris' 4-Hour Chef meme."
I fell into a couple of traps when starting my first niche site
Got enticed by the availability of an exact-match-domain - I wanted to do a Product Review site about EDC (every day carry) knives. Since last fall when I found myself at…"
Sounds good!! It will really help to get the Analytics there to optimize for the search queries that people are using to find you. Knowing this you can then compare with the AdWords Key Words Tool to discover what are the best paying Key Words…"
"OOH! Interesting - I cant wait to hear how things progress!!
I like Yoast's SEO for Wordpress - it just plain works. Some bugs it had were recently fixed so make sure you're up to date (like late last week I think).
Is this going to be a Niche site or an "Authority" site?
I thought my site http://www.edcknifereviews.com was going to be a niche site, but now as I work on it I think I want more from it. Typically, a niche site is one where…"
I don't have Alexa toolbar installed and the site is not tech-related. Are you saying that there's no correlation of Alexa rank with site authority or quality of back links, SEO, etc? Is there any value to Alexa rank at all? Do you…"
"Another Alexa update:
02/22/2013 - - Global Rank 4,989,047 that's an improvement of 306,729 in 2 days!!
I know these numbers alone are meaningless, but they are indicators that I am making some progress and that my backlinks are adding…"
"Niche site (http://www.edcknifereviews.com) update:
Because I am in an interesting point right at the beginning (about 20 days) I am expecting all of the work I've done to this point to start translating to improvements in Alexa rank and Unique…"
"Interesting thing happened last night. I was looking at my Google Analytics and see that my new niche site (http://www.edcknifereviews.com) isnt getting much traffic - that's ok, I launched it a few weeks ago and have been very deliberate about…"
"The general thought around a post should be one category, multiple tags. So if I were in your position I would set it up that way. Maybe by picking the high-level categories of knives you're looking to include...or just toss them all in a…"
How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I've been a friend of Justin Lukasavige's for a number of years and have followed his business pursuits, which of course led me to Dan Miller and the 48Days movement. I've previously had an account here but it must have gotten deleted for inactivity because I am being asked to sign up again.
I'm a Christ-follower, Husband to Rachel, Daddy to a 26-y/o daughter in the US Navy, 6-y/o Jack and 3-y/o Ellie.
By vocation I am a software project manager but by avocation I am an NRA Firearms Instructor, Range Safety Officer and recruiter. I am also the Editor of a niche website EDC Knife Reviews - a site to provide consumer reviews of great pocket knives for every day carry (EDC) at http://www.edcknifereviews.com
I'm also working on some other niche sites and plan on participating in Rob Orr's Niche Site Challenge.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Employed full time and working on various passive income strategies in my free time.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Personal fulfillment, flexibility, fun and security for my family (not necessarily in that order).
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I'll come back to this - I actually just had a 64 page profile created for me that identified my EQ as well as DISC profile. Most of it was spot on, but some of it was situational.
I prefer to work with others than to be solitary.
I am very social and not at all introverted.
Although I enjoy speaking, I would prefer to deliver written instructions rather than try to teach you verbally.
