November 2013 Earnings Report

Written by admin on December 15, 2013

November marked the loss of my top positions on the search engines for my second site. Without the high volume sales of low-dollar items like I typically get in October-December overall earnings are suffering. I’ve managed to capture an additional $20-30/mo by putting an adsense block into the top right position on my sidebar on my primary site without affecting sales or Amazon CTR (YMMV).

October 2013 Earnings Report

Written by admin on November 3, 2013

October started off with a bang and then the site that was producing most of the sales volume lost it’s #1 position and dropped down to #6 effectively killing the traffic.

The high conversion is due to a seasonal product that has sold very well during the fall months now for more than two years.

My goal with the last

WordPress tip for niche site owners running version 3.6

Written by admin on September 10, 2013

I just read about a problem with WordPress post revisions on their Trac system that you may want to take measure to address if you are running on 3.6 and make a lot of revisions to your posts. The issue is that if you have a huge number of revisions you can eventually hit a limit that will break the ability to save posts. Granted, it took the bug reporter 1000+ revisions to hit this limit but it also brings

Extreme Review from Erica Stone and New Project

Written by admin on September 3, 2013

I just bought Extreme Review from Erica Stone last night to use as my first case study here on HTBBA. I’ll be going through her system and building a site 100% based on her guide. Then I’ll evaluate how it stacks up to the system I used on my biggest earning site.
