Day 31 : 60-day Experiment

Isn't it funny that I'm aiming for $10 in adsense on the second month when I haven't even placed a single ad unit on my site? Well, I only realized that after re-reading the goals. So I placed the ads and despite the dismal traffic, I managed to get two clicks!

And that's not all. I'm happy to announce that the site is already inching its way to the first page. The last check on Google Webmaster Tools showed that it's already in position #13. That's a few notches away. But guess what, when I checked the results from google, I'm actually at #11 already. One notch higher and the main goal of our experiment is already done.

I think it will be a matter of days before the site finally land on the first page. Not bad for a lazy person like me. But to be honest, the promising results fired me up. Let's see where it goes.

Day 32 : 60 Day Experiment

Let's strike while the iron is hot.

Today, I did the following:

  1. Posted comment on 6 PR4 blogs

  2. Posted comment on 2 PR5 blogs

  3. Posted comment on 3 PR6 news site

  4. Published another post (with main keyword)

  5. 2 tweets + multiple RT on the celebrities I follow (I'll post more about it)

Basically, that's what I've done for the day. Hopefully it will help push the site to page one by tomorrow. I'll let everybody know if that happens.

At this point, the traffic is not that great. So, I'm banking on the prospect of the first page. I checked my competitors and I think I can outrank some of them. After I land on #10, the next logical step is to shoot for #7.
