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.

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.

This site is performing well and I’ve recently decided to expand the content area for it as a result. The domain can accommodate any range of outdoor topics including nature, hiking, camping, travel, etc.

As such, I have plans to add two new silos with 50 posts each. From there, I’ll continue to monitor and see what happens.

  1. Why is a site that’s 18 months old only making $26.91? :/ And it has 60 posts.

    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.
