List My Five Update

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:

The Top Five Ways to Make Extra Money with Your Body

The Top Five Dividend Yielding Stocks of the Dow

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.
