This article is part 3 in a series of reports about websites that are under-performing, aged and neglected – and how we gradually improve their status, to a decent, healthy income-earning set of websites.
We believe that applying one set of techniques we can increase traffic and earnings for each of these sites. Last month we focused on writing and publishing. This one will be quick as there was very little progress.
- Published most of the 17 articles written the month prior and inserted affiliate links.

Results This Month
14 articles were published this month of the 17 that were prepared the month prior. Unfortunately, there were a lot of delays that prevented progress.
There were 35 more visitors this month compared to last month. Although the results are mixed: the majority of articles were NOT published at the start of the month, so stats started going up later in the month.
Nonetheless, about 2 visits per day were added to the site. This may not mean much, however, a closer look in SEMRush and you’ll see the site is actually showing up for 192 more keywords in Google search.
We hope more of these searches will be those shopping around for these products.
Since there was almost no writing progress this month, we hope to manage time better and prepare more content for publishing in June.
Building links will probably be in a future discussion as it’s needed for the internal pages of this site.
- Will need to manage time better and write more posts in June.
- Link building to internal review articles will be discussed.
Thank you for reading and — See you here in about one month.
