I was supposed to publish the first update in the starting of month but I did not get time. So I am publishing the update with whatever happened in last two months.
Read the first post regarding 10,000 Monthly Income Challenge that I set for myself to achieve in 6 months from a brand new website.
I have received 4800 sessions with 9500 page views in the first month. Average session duration was more than 1 minute which gives a good signal to Google that the content of my website is useful for the readers.
September Traffic Stats
You can see a spike in traffic in mid of September, that happened when I posted a requirement of a freelance writer for the content of website pluginhackers.com
We can ignore that traffic because all those freelancers came to check what is expected from them.
October Traffic Stats
Since I was busy in other assignments, I could not give much time in the growth of PluginHackers.
I barely get any traffic.
Just 350 sessions and 500 page views.
What do you think? It’s a good thing or bad thing?
You should never focus on just the traffic numbers. Always focus on the relevant traffic.
I have not done any efforts to bring these 225 users on my website. All happened by itself due to the efforts made in the month of September.
The good news is that I made the first income in the second month of starting the challenge.
My first post on PluginHackers was related to the security of wordpress and I reviewed 10 wordpress security plugins.
After a thorough review, I loved the services and pricing of Sucuri Plugin, so I signed up with their affiliate program.
The above dashboard is securi affiliate dashboard that shows that 48 people clicked on the affiliate link and 1 person took the action and bought the security program from Securi.
I made Rs. 1901 which are still in pending state. If the buyer stays with their program for a certain period of time, then they will release the payments in my account.
That’s the power of Affiliate Marketing when done in the right way.
I gave them the right (& genuine) information and helped them in deciding the best product for them. Someone bought the security program from Securi after clicking my link and I made a small income.
I am very excited to grow this website after seeing a small success in terms of first income.
I will publish more powerful content on pluginhackers in the future.
- Hire Content Writers and Pay them upto Rs. 5000 per article.
- Publish one article per week for next 3 months (right now only two articles are there)
- Write more powerful how-to guides and plugin reviews
- Work on building linkbacks from authority websites
If you have some experience in blogging or online marketing but never made any money making online business, then you may join the challenge.
