Now that my area of interest web site has been revealed, I am comfortable to share that the location has continued to develop and progress.
In full disclosure, I did not focus very a lot on my web site, OwnTheYard.com, due to different issues I used to be centered on throughout July. I launched Hyperlink Whisper in early/mid July which took a variety of time. Then I used to be on trip on the finish of July.
Regardless of my lack of focus, it was nice to see the location obtain one other document month by way of earnings and visitors!
Whereas the location did have a document month, I've some considerations that August will not be an even bigger month than July. I am going to share these considerations in a bit, however please relaxation assured that I do not assume something “dangerous” goes to occur to my web site, I simply assume there are some enhancements that I must make to maintain it rising.
Let's bounce into the report!
Through the month of July, OwnTheYard.com earned a complete of $1,392.11! As you may see from the chart above, that is one other document month. The positioning is now about 11 months outdated, and I am very proud of the outcomes that I've seen.
The positioning made $692.16 from Amazon Associates and $699.95 from Ezoic adverts.
Please be aware that the above screenshot is for Amazon US solely. I lastly acquired round to organising Amazon UK and Amazon Germany final month, so I had just a little little bit of earnings there as properly. About $7.45 in Amazon worldwide earnings. It isn't a lot, however I am going to take it!
I've some concepts to extend my Amazon earnings, which I focus on in my income considerations under.
As you may see, the earnings from Ezoic continued to develop quickly! In complete, I made practically $700 from Ezoic show adverts alone.
Whereas I am excited with the Ezoic development and earnings, as I take a deeper look it raises some considerations about the way it's impacting my Amazon earnings and web site pace.
My main approach of monetizing OwnTheYard.com has at all times been Amazon Associates. Nevertheless, you may see that I really made extra from Ezoic show adverts than Amazon (simply barely) in July.
Whereas initially, that sounds good, I believe I'll have too many adverts on my web site, which is inflicting my Amazon Associates earnings to be decrease than it could possibly be.
So, here is my three considerations with the monetization on the location and the way I plan to repair these points:
I've too many show adverts, particularly on posts monetized with Amazon Associates. So, within the subsequent few days, I plan to undergo all my articles which are primarily monetized by Amazon and can take away the Ezoic show adverts. This can permit folks to give attention to clicking over to Amazon and shopping for. This can end in decrease Ezoic earnings, however will hopefully be made up by much more earnings from Amazon.
I consider a mix of Cloudflare, WPRocket, and Ezoic is inflicting caching points with my Desk Labs tables (Amazon product comparability tables). As you may see from the screenshot under, my tables should not displaying up! This has been an ongoing situation for a number of months. The Tables will present up…after which not. As soon as I clear the Ezoic cache and Cloudflare cache, they present up once more. I've tables throughout a number of different websites (on the identical internet hosting account) and NEVER have points with these. Consequently, I'm going to attempt disabling the WP Rocket plugin to see if that helps them “stick”. I simply disabled the plugin, and hopefully that improves the scenario.
I want to enhance the location pace, I am seemingly dropping income as a result of individuals are bouncing off my web site earlier than it totally masses. A number of months in the past, I had employed somebody to hurry up my web site (from Upwork). I am going to return and have them do it once more. I consider that a large cause my web site is slower now's as a result of Ezoic adverts. Nevertheless, I am hopeful I can work out an answer that retains my web site blazing quick along with having adverts on my web site.
Tables Not Exhibiting Up
The truth that none of my tables are displaying up is a giant deal, clearly. These tables are all close to the highest of my posts, slightly below the introduction. In different phrases, these are the primary issues that readers are alleged to see and it is their first (and normally finest) alternative to click on by way of to Amazon.
So, the truth that they don't seem to be displaying up is unquestionably costing me Amazon commissions, I simply do not know the way a lot.
Now, there may be undoubtedly going to be some seasonality to my area of interest. Spring and Summer season are almost definitely the best visitors months for “yard” associated content material. As summer time winds down, I anticipate that visitors will decline individually for some key phrases – even when my rankings enhance or keep the identical. That is simply seasonality.
We'll see how large of a difficulty this finally ends up being in fall and winter. I do not know but.
I do have further content material both out already or popping out quickly that ought to carry out properly in fall and winter months (snow gear, and so on).
As you may see from the Revenue and Loss assertion above, the location is doing properly!
Income is rising and EBITDA lastly hit a optimistic quantity in July! I am going to take the $600 in revenue.
My content material prices have been fairly a bit decrease this month as a result of I solely revealed 6 articles in the course of the month. Nevertheless, my Pinterest administration expense went as much as $190, since that's what I am paying my new Pinterest supervisor. I am going to focus on intimately how Pinterest goes.
General, I've spent just a little over $19,000 on the location in complete and made just a little over $Four,000 in income. Consequently, I am nonetheless within the “gap” $15,800.
As talked about earlier than, I am not involved by this in any respect. It is a long run funding that can merely get extra precious over time because it continues to develop. If I have been to attempt to promote the location right now (which I am not going to), I might anticipate to promote it for someplace between $30 to $40ok.
I've outsourced practically each side of the location, consequently, my bills are a lot greater than yours may be. If you do not have this a lot cash to speculate, however you may write articles, do your individual outreach, and do your individual pinterest administration, you'd have needed to spend little or no cash.
I plan to publish this detailed P&L assertion for yet another month in order that your entire first 12 months is documented. After that, I'll replace it much less ceaselessly.
I proceed to see optimistic developments by way of visitors. In reality, July was one other document month for total visitors!
Many of the visitors continues to return from each Google and Pinterest. OwnTheYard.com had simply over 47,000 periods for the month of July, and as you may see from the graph above, that's trending fairly properly!
Google Site visitors
Site visitors from Google continues to be the biggest single supply of visitors. As you may see, just a little over 20,000 periods got here immediately from Google in the course of the month of July.
Key phrase rankings proceed to both maintain regular or enhance usually talking. The one concern (as talked about beforehand) is that there could possibly be some seasonality that begins kicking in throughout August. Consequently, it is very doable that Google visitors might degree off, regardless that rankings enhance.
Pinterest Site visitors
After a small decline throughout June, Pinterest had an enormous bounce up throughout July!
As talked about, I have been working with a special Pinterest Supervisor over the previous few months, and he actually delivered in July. Pinterest is so fickle although. The spike is usually as a result of a few pins that actually simply took off.
Particularly, my enclosed patio concepts article did rather well on Pinterest, as did the again patio concepts article.
General, I am comfortable to see practically 14,000 periods from Pinterest! (Which is over double final month by the best way).
I am not proud of the quantity of content material I acquired revealed throughout July. Nevertheless, it is all my fault as typical :). I used to be merely centered on Hyperlink Whisper after which trip throughout July, so I did not get as a lot content material reviewed and revealed.
General, I added 6 new articles to the location throughout July. I hope to extend that again nearer to the 15 or 20 article vary in August and September.
Here is a fast abstract of the whole articles added:
I've one other 50 or so key phrases that I've discovered that I simply must get assigned to an creator to write down. I did have a few my authors mainly dry up. So, I've one stable creator that may do 2 or three every week, however I might wish to get extra within the queue as properly.
I'll seemingly place one other order with Content material Pit to assist full a few of these 50 pending article concepts that I've.
Here is a shocker…I did not actually put a lot effort into hyperlink constructing once more!
I did rent somebody to do some outreach for me in June and I used to be in a position to land 2 visitor posts in early July, so it wasn't a 100% fingers off month. I used Loganix to do the outreach for me.
The hyperlinks landed have been stable and I've some seen some motion with the key phrase I used to be concentrating on. One key phrase has gone from rating 32 to 26th in Google. The opposite key phrase has gone from rating over 100 to now 47 in Google.
I think about as that article ages, it should proceed to enhance.
Instruments I am Utilizing for My Web site
In case you're questioning what I've used to construct my web site, what plugins I've, or different instruments or companies I have been utilizing to develop, I've created this checklist for you under.

Lengthy Tail Professional – for all my key phrase analysis and rank monitoring.

AAWP – To create product packing containers for Amazon Associates merchandise.
AmaLinks Professional – To create nice trying buttons for Amazon Associates.

Proceed so as to add 15 to 20 articles a month, specializing in low competitors key phrases that both low authority rivals are rankings for or different alternatives I discover.
Make web site pace enhancements.
Make minor monetization tweaks (I particularly talked about these tweaks above like eradicating Ezoic adverts from Amazon centered posts, and so on.)
Attempt to get a pair extra stable authors in place in order that my key phrase plans and spreadsheets get accomplished and up to date frequently.
Focus a bit extra on inside linking now that my web site has reached over 150 posts – numerous inside linking alternatives. Hyperlink Whisper will make this fast and straightforward.
Attempt to get a number of extra white hat hyperlinks by way of outreach right here and there. Perhaps each different month, I'll attempt to get a few hyperlinks.
General, that is the plan! It is pretty easy, but it surely's been fairly efficient up till now. I have been in a position to construct an asset that's making $1,300 a month within the first 11 months. The primary 12 months is unquestionably the toughest.
Now that I've a web site with just a little little bit of authority and it is rising, going from $1,300 to $three,000 a month ought to be a lot simpler than going from $zero to $1,000.
I additionally do not wish to get forward of myself, however the finish objective is to not make $2k or $3k a month. I do know this type of web site has the potential to make $5k or $10ok or rather more every month. So, I am going to continue to grow this web site for not less than the following 12 months and see the place I find yourself.
I am excited to have you ever alongside the journey with me!
