Many of you know by now that I am combining my evaluation of SENuke X with my desire to get back into the Niche Site Duel.
Of course, this is a perfect match, since you will recall that my “spin” on the niche site duel was to participate using outsourcing and automation. Of course, that was back in August. I got the site up and applied to the affiliate program that I wanted to use. I even got to page one of Google for a while.
Since then, I have been completely distracted by this busy thing called “life”. Most of you know that I have four kids, a day job and tons of other stuff going on.
Still, while doing absolutely nothing about the Niche Site Duel for months, I have been following Pat’s amazing success with his niche site duel security guard experiment. Pat's approach is especially excellent for people who are simply looking for a place to start (getting started can be overwhelming, and Pat breaks it all down).
Where we are now
So, the site is currently sitting at 25 in Google (page 3) for “learn guitar basics”. That was accomplished with no promotion. It has visited page 1. I consider all of this to be a pretty good sign. You can see the current rankings below.
All of this has not resulted in much traffic, and the traffic has been falling month by month. I suspect that some of this is due to buzz around the niche site duel itself falling off. But it’s not all because of that….
As you can see from the below traffic stats, some of the hits have some from SE traffic. Specifically, hits are coming from my keywords. I suspect that most of this traffic came from the times when I was on page one for “learn guitar basics”.
So, the simple task in front of me is to fix up the website so that visitors have a chance to buy something, and to get to #1 for “learn guitar basics”. For that last task, I plan to use SENuke X.
I’ll keep you posted.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
