What should I do with this site http://www.easierwayz.com?
Hi, I got Mark's Affiloblueprint just over a year ago, and it is the best training that I have seen. However prior to getting AB, I had a website built for me which was targeting the weight loss niche.
Please keep in mind that at the time i knew absolutely nothing about internet marketing, nothing about seo ( had never heard about it), nothing about keywords, or anything else for that matter. It was only after going through the AB training that i realised what an idiot i had been about the weight loss site that i had paid good money to be created for me.
I targeted these keywords for the weight loss site
I'll give you all a minute to stop laughing and compose yourselves....
Please keep in mind that I was completely ignorant of ranking factors and competition, however even I cringe when i think of what i went after.
I actually need some advice about this site and how i can make money from it. Also remember that if there was a wrong way to build a site, I managed it really well with this one. The fact is that it is a bit of a mess.
However for the last month or so these are my rankings for this site in the UK.
How to lose weight - Number 5 on page 1 of google - searches, exact match -14800 in the Uk
Losing Weight - Number 2 on page 2 of google - searches, exact match - 8000 in the uk
Lose Weight - Number 2 on page 2 of google - searches, exact match - 22000
Weight Loss - bottom of page 2 of google - searches, exact match - 74000
These are all monthly searches.
Now i would like to say that i have managed to get this high in a hugely competitive market by my seo skills and insider knowledge. However the truth is that i don't know how it has happened. Over the last 3 years i have been throwing links at this site from srticle directories, directories, web 2.0 properties, and so on.
There was no plan in place like you get with affilioblueprint. There was no real focus on making the site seo friendly. I just did stuff when i had the time.
The problem I have is that i am not making anything from this site. I have a bunch of affiliate programs on the homepage, but i am not selling anything at all. For the keyword "how to lose weight" the 4-5 sites above me are authority sites which are not selling anything. I don't seem to be getting much traffic either.
Tell me if i am wrong, but surely there should be money to made from this position?
I don't know what i can do, so I would really appreciate it if someone could take a look and make some suggestions. There is no need to be polite and lie to me about how the whole structure of the site is crap. I learned this from the AB training ( thanks for that Mark : ) ).
I have other sites which were built through the AB method which were set up properly from day one, but this one... well i'd be grateful if you could take a little time to check it out. The address is below.http://www.easierwayz.com
P.S. Please don't ask about the domain name, I'm embarrassed enough.
