In this TL;DW Series (TL;DW – Too Long; Didn’t Watch), we’ll be dissecting into this Niche Pursuits podcast on – How Nick Jordan Grows Sites to Over 100k Organic Views a Month Without Link Building.
I’m a huge fan of Spencer Haws and his Niche Pursuits. Learn tons of great stuff from him and his website. I’m totally hooked to him when he shared his journey of building niche sites from scratch on how he built the sites, the traffic, how he monetize and earnings.
The most striking indelible aha moment was over the months he was sharing all these, even for tier-1 guru-level expert level like him, there was literally no results – in terms of traffic and earnings; as a matter of fact, it’s miserably trickling … for like 6-9 months!
That’s when I realised that even if you do it all RIGHT ie. content generation, SEO … and so on, it take time for Google to love you before you see the (exponential) growth of your traffic and monetization. And from my further research, that period could be sometime between 6 months to 2 years.
Now, if you intend to start a website and expect money to roll in next month – this wishful hope is not realistic. It is not difficult to start a website or blog, but it is hard to maintain and persist when one see literally zero results in months. In my opinion, most people would have gave up within 3 months seeing their efforts having null payoff – why I know? Because I too gave up many websites and online projects along the way. (Sidetrack: I’m restarting and restructuring my entire SYSTEM; do join me in a journey to build a portfolio of online businesses to 5-figure side income)
Back to this TL;DW series, I’m also a subscriber of Niche Pursuits YouTube channel – https://www.youtube.com/@niche-pursuits – as an avid fan, I followed most of its podcasts interviewing many successful bloggers and webpreneurs, generously sharing the strategies and techniques on how they built successful websites.
But there is a problem.
While watching all those podcasts and videos, many of them are like 30-minute to an hour. I’m not sure about you but though I enjoyed and learnt a lot from such lengthy informational videos, I’ve a hard time to assimilating the gists and golden nuggets of them, hence, hard to model and execute them into own projects.
That’s why I’m creating this TL;DW Series to extract the “executive summary” out of these videos so as to make them more digestible and actionable.
So let’s dive into our very first TL;DW :
