Re: 1 year old website, 12+ million unique weekly visitors

Honestly, I'm not at all impressed by their 12 million likes. But what I am impressed by is their 8 million "Talking About Us". People are liking, sharing and commenting on their content -- not a...

Re: The top-earning Amazon affiliates!

Perhaps there is no significant relevance of price nor popularity for these products as selection criteria? My own marketing model is to find products based on well researched niche-specific...

Re: Another question for Alexa (and anyone else who really has insight)

I don't.



I think that's because you're assuming that there's a valid correlation between their Alexa rank and their traffic?

What I've found is that you can always drill deeper for more topic ideas. There is always something to say about something, if you know what I mean.

Re: A question for Alexa Smith and MYOB

This doesn't make any sense, really. Just get creative. Let's say your "niche" is 1 eyed blue betta fish.

You could write 1,000 articles about evolution that caused them to be 1 eyed, blue,...

They vary enormously. In one niche I now have over 20 "regulars"; in other niches, fewer. (And ezines separately, but they're not really "sites" apart from some which do have a copy archived online,...

Astron, there's a huge lesson here, besides the obvious one about testing to see what yields the most profit rather than what results in the biggest list.

That lesson is that you can use an...
