Well, it has been one week since I joined List My Five so I thought I would record what has happened during that time. Of course, I had hoped to have more done during that time but isn't that always how it goes. It seems that I always set out my goals and try to get too much done in the amount of time I have. Life just always seems to be too busy overall.
Despite a busy week, I did manage to get 4 lists published. I linked my first two in my last post and will link my next two in this post. I am not sure if there is a connection, but the first two were indexed in Google by the next day. My most recent two have yet to be indexed so I wonder if the reason my first two were indexed so quickly is the fact that I placed links here. I guess I will learn something fairly soon. Here are lists number 3 and 4:
Needless to say, if those two lists get indexed now, I will have to be linking all of my lists for a little while from this blog. I would hope that after another month or two, the site will command some authority of its own. Looking at the Alexa Rank from today, the 3 month rank is 432,672 and the one month rank is 162,638. That tells me there is some fairly rapid growth. I would suspect that in the next week or so, the one month rank should be in the top 100,000.
So far, I have had 325 visits to my lists. I have no idea if there is any search traffic at all in that total. I have also earned a total of 12 cents. I am somewhat encouraged by this since it took me several weeks to earn anything at HubPages. My goal will eventually be to make the $10 minimum payout each and every month like I am at eHow.
I think it would be awesome if I could make the first payout by the end of the year. There are 14 weeks until the end of 2010. That means to make a $10 payout would require me to average 71 cents each week. At 3 cents per list for this week, I could probably get it done with 25 more lists made over the next week. HA! Like that is going to happen as busy as I usually am. But at least it is theoretically possible by posting only 3 or 4 lists each day.
Well, I will just have to see what happens and will post an update in another few days. In the meantime, I guess I should start making a few more lists and get some work done.
I am just a neophyte learning to make money online. I am excited about the opportunities and hope to share what I am learning.
I am also interested in real assets such as gold and real estate. I have a blog on these topics as well. Be sure to stop by and check out both my blogs.
