My problem with keyword research is that I find so many good ones I think, wow, I need to build a site for that. And then I do.

This site is kind of a back burner site so I try to add posts here and there but am not really focused on it. I don’t have big plans for it in 2021 but I’ll try to get it to at least 100 articles.

If you haven’t noticed by looking at my other niche sites, I am an animal lover. Always have been, always will be. In fact, I was a pre-vet student for my undergraduate work and my graduate work was in animal reproduction.

So, for this site, I focus on animals in general. Mostly wild animals, but the domain name is wide enough to allow me some flexibility to cover other aspects of nature besides animals.

April

Hi, my name is April, and I have a domain name problem. I think of an idea, I buy a domain name, and sometimes I build a website for it. That's what happened on this site, and for all of the other ones I talk about here. I'm not an expert but I'm happy to share what has worked for me!

    1. I think it is a combination of a few factors here but probably the two most important are the fact that I didn’t add articles to this site consistently. It didn’t even have 30 articles until month 15. That means a lot of the content is new and hasn’t had a chance to age. Combine that with the horrible RPM’s the site is getting from Ezoic and that’s pretty much the answer. This site has the potential to be a mega site but, until it gets on Mediavine I don’t expect it to earn much. What is important is that I am seeing month over month growth which, for me, is great for a site that isn’t my focus.
