My September 2014 Income and Traffic Report

Welcome to my 8th Monthly report for 2014!

This is the 8th Time of my income and traffic report. There are lots of changes and project’s progress in each month. I just wanted to share a detailed report of what I’ve done and everything that I’ve learned from the previous month. And everything that was going on with my online business stuffs, income, expenses and traffic through Be Rich and Rich Journey! I hope that this report would be an inspiration for you to get started your own online business and make it’s happened.

The reason why I do this:

  • To keep track and help me focus for currently important projects each month.
  • To improve productivity, but not to stress for myself each month.
  • To inspire you to start your own online business.
  • To share key successes and failures during each month that I’ve experienced.

Ok. Let’s see what’s inside this report!

What was happening in September?

PBN Deindexing and my thought on this

I was reading a lot about Massive PBN Deindexing last month from many bloggers. It was bad that you just lost your whole ranking and earning over night. Check out these posts for more details:

For me, I’m using only few PBN for niche site #1. And all niche sites and my PBN sites are working fine. There is not effected on these sites. But then, after I realized this situation. If I want to build long term online business. I need to change my game and do something different. So next year, instead of building 10 niche websites, I’ll just build only 1-2 authority site. I hope that this is going to be the right track for long term business.  I’ll start this project around December or January. Surely, I’ll update you guys along the way of building this project. So keep an eye on Be Rich And Rich Journey!

Niche Site #2 Update: Big earning from small traffic

In August, my earning from this site was only $2.50 from amazon affiliate, while this month, my earning was increased to $130.5. It came from one CPA offer and amazon affiliate. I wanted to tell you the truth that it was over my expectation and I really impressed with this result.

The point is the traffic from last month was just 15-20 unique visitors/day. This is the perfect niche for me. So I’ll continue with guest-posting and buying High PR links to build more traffic to this site. And no more PBN for me, ever!

Niche Site #3 Update: Building first link-building campaign

Everything was done last month, including all contents and product-comparison chart. Now the time of link-building, so I choose the highest package from The Hoth for link-building. I’ll continue with guest-posting and buying High PR links as same as Niche Site #2. So this is going to be a long project plan, up to 6-12 months. I hope that I could see some result, by January next year. Since this site has been built from the new domain, not an expire domain. It’s going to be tough to rank a new niche website in the first-page of Google under 6 months due to the Google Sandbox.

Starting my 2nd Info-Product (eBook)

Since, I’ve been blogging in Thai & English over 1 year. It’s been a long journey and I have a lot of FUN with every project. Since February, I wrote first eBook in Thai Language about passive income with amazon kindle & createspace as I was explaining to you in this post.

Last month, I was planning and developing content for 2nd eBook in Thai Language. It’s going to be completed by November, with 45% completed so far. This book is all about how making passive income with the amazon affiliate niche website. Since, I’ve learned building and earning from niche sites over a year. Right now I have 3 niche sites that I’m working on it.
