How to Get 1,000 Visitors Per Day – Six Figure Challenge Update

Today I have a quick update on my Six Figure Website Challenge website and the results over the last month. Would I hit the 1,000 visitors per day milestone?…

As I mentioned in my last update Mid Year Six Figure Challenge Update I was going to reduce my team working on the site and continue only what I thought were the critical activities…

  1. Consistently publishing quality content
  2. Building quality links via a relevant PBN and using my 301 building block strategy

So..

  • How has that reduced scope impacted the sites growth?
  • What do I believe are the key findings?
  • What is my plan moving forward?

 

Current Strategy

  1. Publish HIGH quality content (2 Posts Per Week)
  • Content has been the engine of this project and having a couple great writers churning out
  1. 301 Building Block & Relevant PBN Strategy (using powerful expired domains)

 

Changes

Here is a summary of a few changes since I launched this strategy for me…

  1. No More Project Manager, graphic designer, promoter, research VA
  2. Cut Cost of Article Published from

Basically I have not refilled any of the positions that fell off and have narrowed my focus to only the 2 key strategies.

Is there more I could be doing…

Absolutely! I hope to do many more things in the future to push the results but for now I am happy letting this site continue to build momentum. When the time is right to re-build the promotion team and put more of my time into making sure the higher level promotion is done right I will!

 

Results – 1,000 Visitors Per Day

The site is continuing its growth rate with organic traffic and as of this month including the value of the site is now positive (earned – expenses + value of site > total expenses).

This month I hit the 1,000 visitor per day mark and the growth rate seems to be continuing.

Monetization is still a challenge and not where I would like it to be yet!

Overall I was able to cut cost per published article from $26 to $12 and quality stayed high.

Take-Aways

  • Quality content will always important and must be the basis for any project… adding value will eventually be the only thing that matters!
  • Quality vs Quantity is proving to be effective in terms of backlinks. Using both a relevant PBN and some 301 building blocks the site continues to respond well in Google

It has only been 1 month since my last update and the strategy change but I like what I am seeing so far.

Although I am running out of time to really dig in and hit my 6 figure sales figure for the site this year I am happy that again I am able to show that consistent content + quality links can generate traffic predictably.

For those of you that joined me in building an Authority Site at the start of this year how is your site progressing?
