This month I broke the site! I had originally used this site for local news & information so each subdomain was specific to a region. Each one had it’s own WP instance and, in some cases, duplicated content. I had to get rid of those so I merged all the content and deleted all the subdomains & consolidated. This made me take a huge hit in traffic. My webmaster tools on Google now show that I have 1400 404! error pages. This is concerning since it also shows that I have 229 external backlinks - so I fixed the main ones and redirected the rest as best I could. I also found an internal link checking tool (Broken Link Checker by Janis Elsts) and it showed that I had over 2200 Broken Links! I’m not sure I’ll ever fix all of them but at least this way they are identified. This is going to be a long process to rebuild but I knew that coming in since the whole strategy will pivot. But at least I have some quality content and a base of users/traffic that I can start to regrow.
David’s study is a case where white hat effort can grow a site very quickly, but it does rely a little on timing, as well as a lot of research in picking the right niche. His post doesn’t go too deep into it, but you can find more about picking a niche in a post we wrote a few days ago. There’s also a ton of information on it out there on other sites, like David’s, Darren’s, and others.

Nunez immediately saw the potential of the CrazyForBargains affiliate program, and thought it would be successful because it paired a generous commission rate with an extensive inventory of a niche product. “They have a wide variety of fun family sleepwear at very affordable prices, and free shipping for purchases exceeding $40. Further, they have a terrific conversion rate. Put that all together, and they are a very attractive program to promote for all affiliate marketers,” Nunez explains.
Thanks to the company’s continued efforts in making their affiliate’s life easier, you’ll get the benefit of tiered commissions and hands-on assistance whenever needed. I can state from my personal experience that CBDEssence pays on time and takes the personal interest in your success. The products are also of a holistic nature and have proven to be beneficial for anxiety, pain, and many other issues.
