Currently 11k+ students are registered to the site and their e-mails have not been contacted.
It is currently ranked #3-#5 and has a lot of schools and .edu backlinks
I currently only have adsense on this page, but it peaks during college exams months. Last December, it had over 300k, I'm expecting January to much lower though.
My plan: I want to revamp this site into the #1 resource for college students like essay writing, get your homework/assignments/online class done, resume writing, etc. This site currently has no content.
I want to first start by doing content marketing for the first 3-6 months to build some authority while capture e-mails... and then do a complete site redesign later once I am getting more monthly traffic.
My questions are:
What are some better ways of monetizing this kind of traffic instead of Adsense? e.g. affiliate marketing, list building, paid student services.
Will my site have enough authority right now to easily rank for long tail keywords without much SEO?
My calculator page has all the links pointed to it. If I link to a new article on my calculator page, should it be enough for my site to rank for a easy competition long tail keyword?
