Project Alcyone: Month 5 – March 2020

Traffic tripled this month.

Content + Links. That’s all we did this month. Sometimes that’s all you need to do.

Content

We published 4 articles (12,360 words). All round-up reviews.

Project Total Content Published = 28 Articles (85,060 Words)

All content was written by our in-house editorial team, using our templates & guidelines, and optimized using Surfer SEO.

Links

We built 7 links (guest posts) through our ABC Plus subscription.

Project Total Links Built = 29

Social Signals

We continued to purchase social signals from SEO Butler. The site isn’t getting any significant traffic yet, so we need to find another way to justify the links we built this month so that it looks as natural as possible.

Traffic

We saw traffic triple, from 242 sessions last month to 726 sessions this month.

Earnings

Despite seeing 3x traffic, we actually only earned $18.03 in commissions this month. It isn’t much but the increase in clicks is promising.

Project Total Earnings: $30.96

Expenses

This month, we spent a total of $1,646. We spent $618 on content, $1,000 on links, and $28 on social signals.

Project Total Expenses on Content: $4,253

Project Total Expenses on Links: $5,000

Project Total Expenses (Others): $605.69

Project Total Expenses: $9,858.69

Disclaimer: The $4,253 we spent on content is actually the price of the content if it was purchased from our service (BoostZeus: SEO Content). We want to demonstrate how this strategy can still work even if you outsource both content and links.
