I have a website (1.5 years old) with 100 posts so far and keep growing the content. I'm monetizing with Adsense (with pretty good RPM).
I'm sending paid traffic from Facebook ads and earning around $300/month (profit).
However, I would like to increase my Google organic traffic which is around 100 unique visitors per day.
My competitors in my niche (who have very similar websites as mine and also monetizing them with Adsense and Media.net) are earning between 8k-10k per month (I know because they publish their monthly earnings.) Their traffic mostly comes from Google so I know there is potential.
I have 1K per month to invest in white-hat and safe SEO. My plan is the following:
1) I will be ordering 4 high quality articles each month (2000 words each): =around $400/month.
2) I will be ordering between 10-15 guest posts (outreach links) from real high DA blogs: = around $600
So that's basically my plan. High quality content and high quality backlinks.
What's your opinion on the plan above? Do you have any other recommendations and feedback?
Thanks a lot
