As you know, I have been working on a new site since the Panda update. It is through Weebly and I had to pay for the domain name and hosting for a year. It cost me all of $40 but half of the AdSense views go to them and half to me. It is a format with which I was familiar having written for the "content farms" which share revenue. Since that model is broken, I decided to start my own site. My only goal is for the site to break even by next February and then I can decide what to do from there.
I have been working hard to develop traffic by doing blog commenting and regularly interacting on other personal finance blogs to develop my name and personality. I decided to contact one of these blog owners about writing a guest post. He was receptive to the idea so I sent him a post, he liked it, and posted it on his site. I am so thrilled! It has a link to my site. I can use Google Analytics to report on the impact later. I am sure you are curious so here is the post:
Mark at buylikebuffett.com has a great site. He is a professional investor and writes great posts. If you have any interest at all in stock investing, be sure to check out his site. He is also a great blogger. I appreciate his willingness to let someone untested guest post for his site. I do need to get busy later today and write the follow up piece. I will let you all know when it is up and let you know about the results as well.
Anybody here ever write a guest post? What did it do for your traffic? Did you keep any regular readers? Hope everyone has a good weekend.
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.
