This is my main website. It is based on a specific type of pet. This site already has almost 400 posts and could very easily accommodate over 1,000.
Because it covers the whole “type” of pet, there is a seemingly infinite number of keywords I could target specific to each breed of pet, each type of sport the pet participates in, genetics, nutrition, accessories and more.
I have owned this domain/site for over 10 years and I do believe that once I started adding good content, that helped me rank sooner than what a new site would have. It wasn’t until 2019 where I finally “figured out” how to blog, so my overview stats for that site will start there.

Site In Review
Having not done an update on this site here since March of 2021, it’s definitely time to take another look. As you can see by the tables above, this site hasn’t been getting much content. That is more from lack of focus on my part and not at all due to lack of available content.
I had briefly considered selling this site earlier this year. Mostly because I’m not as inspired to find keywords for it as I used to. I ultimately decided to hold onto it for at least another year so I’ll need to come up with a content strategy to boost rankings.
Overall the site is down. In fact, it’s down 16% over the same 30-day period last year.
The site has some seasonality in Spring / Summer which but, because the growth was so fast I don’t know for sure how long the “season” lasts. You can see a big jump from March – April last year so I am anticipating the same this year but we will see.
When comparing this year to the previous period, I can see there haven’t been any major issues with the site. That tells me that doing some basic work can help get things going back in the right direction.
Goals for this site for the rest of 2022 would be:
- Content Updates on 10% of posts
- Add 100 new posts
- Interlink all posts (currently interlinking is sporadic and most posts don’t have them)
March 2021 Update
Overall this site has a TON of content and I’m not focused to much on new posts but rather I really need to go in and do a content audit to update old, underperforming posts.
Thanks to BloggerPlot I can see that I get on average 371 pageviews per post for content that is 12 months old or older. No doubt that average would increase by trimming and refining old content.
