Thanks admin. I think I want to go over the keyword research tutorial again that you wrote for us. I am aiming for long term goals and thanks for this opportunity you have given all of us here. I have basically been writing only on seekyt as it is like getting free writing lessons. This is priceless!

Admin, is it from writing more articles plus bookmarking sites? I seem to get attention when I first put an article out there but then it dies out. What are some ways to keep it "alive?"
user avatar
Written by Admin, 1 year ago
Great question!

If you get attention when the article is "fresh," it means that you are receiving a lot of direct traffic (from other writers and readers here at Seekyt) from the home page. It could also mean that your followers on the bookmarking sites you use are viewing your article.

The trick to long term traffic is 100% relative to SEO. Organic traffic, which is traffic from Google and other search engines, is the traffic that keeps coming back, day after day. It is also the traffic that will earn you 95-100% of your earnings.

You could estimate that it takes roughly 1,000 pageviews to earn around $20-30, assuming you are targeting a relatively decent keyword. With that mentality, you'd need around 4,000-5,000 pageviews per month to earn your $100 payout. This is a piece of cake in terms of long term SEO practices!

You could write 10 articles that all get 500 views per month, or 100 articles that get 50 views per month, etc. Usually, writing fewer articles on a well researched keyword is the best route - you won't get burnt out too fast, and you will tend to write much higher quality content.

If you do enough keyword research, you could find 10+ keywords each month that have 500-1,000+ searches per month, with very little competition for the keyword. This strategy is what 9/10 of the top earning writers at Seekyt use. The remaining 1/10 has been working on SEO for over a year on a single article which earns a lot of money - the rest have gotten to the level they are at in under six months with very little SEO.

To sum it all up, focus on long term goals instead of short term rewards. If you write an article today, write it with the intent that in six weeks to six months this article will start paying for itself, month after month. The mentality that some people have, which is to get discouraged after a few days when they don't earn anything, is not a healthy one. Long term goals + long term effort = lasting, long term results :)

$4.44 a day sounds like a plan. I think I might even shoot for $4.50. Oh I know how crazy is that LOL.

Congrats xlorah on your .44
user avatar
Written by xlorah, 1 year ago
Hey I just made .44 woohooo!
user avatar
Written by Admin, 1 year ago
Woo! Congratulations :)

Now, turn it into $4.44 a day - a small amount, but enough to earn your $100 payout from AdSense.

After that, aim to increase it to $8, then $10, then $20 a day. The sky is the limit.

By having small goals at first, and increasing by small amounts over time, you will inevitably be successful. That's what I've always done, and it's an effective strategy for anyone!

wow xlorah and Iperry you two are really doing great with this holiday article challenge. I better get writing. Hey I know this is an open challenge for any article about holidays. What about articles that are not holiday specific but focused on getting amazon sales around the holidays? Woud those be okay? So if I wanted to write about toys or t-shirts or something? Just wondering how specific you guys/gals want to be?
user avatar
Written by Admin, 1 year ago
The challenge should be limited to holiday specific articles. However, if you wanted to write about "Christmas T Shirts" or "the top five toys for kids this Christmas" that would be just fine.
