How many articles per day per niche?

17 replies
It's a general question, but help me based on my stats please.

Let's take one of my niches. That niche has:
14 live articles
1033 views
369 URL clicks
270 HOPS
1 Sale

Niche 2 has
10 articles
892 views
192 clicks
116 HOPS
1 sale

ALL STATS ARE FOR ONE MONTH

So, I got 1 sale for 14 articles. Does this mean that if I write 14 articles per day, I will get 1 sale a day? If so, how do you cover multiple niches? I am trying 5 niches with a sale in three, plus adsense in another.

So, how many articles per niche per day do I need to write to get to - let's say $1000 per month ($20 avg. commission)

    First, you have a great CTR from your articles. Well done! Your initial stats look good.

    However, using the first 100 hops to map out a profit strategy going forward isn't going to work. And really, there's just no concrete answer for this. You can have 1 sale in 100 hops one day and 4 sales in the next 100 hops. That's just the way it works. Overtime (1000's of hops later) you can pretty much guage how many hops average 1 sale, and much of that will have to do with the product's landing page and your presell of it.

    Don't worry about the stats of ramping up right now... just ramp up. Worry about the concrete stats later.

    • Thanks. I got my stats a little messed up, so I went back and added both niches that I started on the same day one month ago. That first nich I mentioned actually had 270 HOPS, not 116. Sorry

      I think the key here is scale. Based on your initial stats, your click through rate seems pretty good. I would also argue that where ever you are posting the articles is resulting in a pretty good view rate.

      That said, it's a little early to build a model from the initial stats. There may be seasonality involved and some aging. I recommend giving it another 60 - 90 days before you plan your retirement.

    You can not base your sales on those stats, just because you write 14 articles which produce 1 sale does not mean writing 14 articles per day will produce 1 sale per day. There are many factors that go into play such as market shift, competition, traffic, and etc....

    You need to also spend time on boosting your articles and building awareness about the products you are pushing. You do this through link building which is a little time consuming but well worth the time invested if done right.

    Your stats are not what you need to focus on, focus on building links, boosting articles, writing more articles, and etc...

        I will give you basic information on how to do that...

        Visit the sites below and use them to bookmark your articles, your blog/site, and submit your author rss feed..

        I would spend the time doing it myself.. Most software is crap and does not work proper..

    A really newbie question... How does this help my articles?

      Well true bookmarking is a report I will release very soon but I will give you basics here to get you started.

      Let's see.. go and signup for StumbleUpon (it's on that list), once signed up create your profile and customize your page. Once you have all settings and customizations done then grab up the StumbleUpon link that you can add to your browser fav's

      Basically you go and bookmark your articles using the link StumbleUpon gives you. You will be presented with a form to bookmark the url and it will ask for topics (keywords) and a description, add your description (can use your summary). Then click on the add or submit button.

      Do this with 5 or so articles and even your own website. Now search StumbleUpon for some people related to your articles and add them as friends, basicaly participate in the bookmarking site.

      Doing this will help your ranking with your article because you bookmarked it.. You can increase that by actually participating in the bookmark community, find friends, share interest, and etc...

      Bottom line it increases your exposure and ranking. Do not use any junk software (software = windows downloaded app) that people try to sell you. Do this yourself and manually, spend the time on these sites maybe do 10 or 12 or all 30 if you can find the time.

      Clipmarks & Digg both can have your bookmark listed in google within hours.. Yeah that's right, not days but hours.. I have had bookmarks from digg be listed in google in a matter of 15 minutes.

      Work with many different bookmark communities and bookmark your articles at a rate of 5 or so per day...

      Edited to Add: I will show you an example

      http://clipmarks.com/clipmark/39BFD7...-70723137D947/

      I sometimes bookmark my authors, that there is an extra 31 views that Norma has showing her links to her site. Thus meaning possible more traffic to her sites. If you look at the top you will see the link for my site, this also gives extra traffic to my site. In doing this I am helping my authors and my site both...

    Well not quite! The niches sound very different just from your stats. seems the niche with less articles is a high converting niche! So I would focus my efforts there and start split testing. Just change one factor and see what is up! You digg?

      I'm wondering if those 500+ CT's would have lead to a couple more sales if you were capturing leads with a nice little 7 day follow up system in place. Just something to think about down the road for long term business plans.

      Congratulations of your sales...

      Cheers,
      Dean

          Its a clickbank click ... the clickbank product urls for affiliates have a /hop/ in the url thus people call them hops..

    Good thread....

    I currently have 6 articles with the following stats, same niche:

    views: 900
    clicks: 188

    These articles were posted on January 30th. I have no sales yet though, which makes me think my sales page and such is lacking.What's amazing is 500 of those views are from 2 of the articles.

    I just started with article marketing so next step would be conversion.

    Well, the truth is that its not a formula.
    One article may give you 2 sales and then maybe 10 more articles wont give you any more sales.
    Just to give you an example - A few days ago, I read in the wealthy affiliate forums about a member who is making 700$ a day using article marketing. And guess what, for his most profitable niche, he has only written 9 articles.

    The only thing that he stresses on is preselling better and providing good content in your articles.
    Think Quality instead of quantity and your conversions will increase.

    Hope this helps.
    bye,

    I usually choose one topic per week and write articles for that product. Most of the time it is 2 articles per day. This is all that my time permits so far.
