Niche Site Update (kind of)
So a few weeks ago I showed you one of my niche sites that I was going to start adding content to with the goal of bringing it to making $500 per month.
Well, good news and bad news…
The bad news is, I had added several pages and put in a lot of work building back links to those pages for the site, and then a few days ago I was trying to manually add a plugin that I probably shouldn’t have, and I don’t know if I uploaded it wrong or if the plugin itself did it, but it crashed my site and I lost all my new pages. I was able to restore the main page and my two oldest posts, but that’s it.
And by the way- that sucks big time. If you’re running your sites on WordPress, you’re one screw-up or failed update or hacker away from losing all your work. I’m currently learning how to properly use a backup plugin and do a manual restore for when it happens next time, and when I do I’ll make a post about how to do it.
So, I don’t really have any results to show you for the Stroller site.
I’m sure you’re all interested in the process of getting a site to make $500 per month, but for me the case study was really about the effectiveness of Unique Article Wizard for getting individual pages to rank.
So that brings me to the good news. For the last two weeks I’ve been using Unique Article Wizard on each page or post I make for all of my niche sites. The good news part is that it is working faster and better than I thought it would, and I’m going to show you some of the results.
Here is a screenshot from Market Samurai where I’m tracking my rankings for a blog I have in the fitness niche. Two weeks ago, none of these pages were ranking in the top 100 at all, except for the homepage.

As you can see, the results are great. Doing one submission to UAW takes me about 20 minutes, and for 20 minutes extra per page to get these good of results, it’s very cost effective in terms of both time and money.
I have other niche sites that are getting the same type of results, but that I don’t want to reveal.
As I’ve said before, it’s much better to build out your niche sites to 20 to 30 pages instead of putting up 2 or 3 page “sniper” sites. The problem I was running into, was that I was getting overwhelmed trying to spend a few hours manually building back links to each individual page I put up on one of my sites. That’s when I decided that if UAW works, it’s well worth it because it will save me a lot of time, and therefore money. Plus, each submission gets me around 200-400 back links whereas manually I was taking 2-3 hours just to build around 20.
I’m going to keep working on the Stroller site as well, and I’ll post my results with that every two weeks or every month probably.
