Hay everyone, this one a little later than normal. Life has been full-on.
If this is your first time here check out my other months here: Blogging News Updates
To the blogging update. Month 6 has been strange. It started off swimmingly and then Pinterest threw another wobbly at me and now I’m in this weird, my accounts not flagged but somethings not right with it phase.
Im suspecting an algorithm update did not go my way. Unlike Pinterest jail, my traffic didn’t completely disappear just dramatically fell over the course of a few days. Gradually decreasing by about 70-80% sigh.
After joining some Pinterest groups I can see there are a lot of people just as frustrated as me and dealing with the same. So fingers crossed Pinterest gets it sorted and all will be well again.
Anyway trying to stay positive and I’m continuing to use the platform and try some new techniques.
Seo has improved and continues to yay! I worked hard on AMP and updating my content and keywords. It’s slowly paying off which I’m pleased about.
I’ve signed up for amazon affiliate and giving it a go, at last, I’m nervous about their minimum sales needed within 128 days but I’m going to give it a crack. It has so many options for my niche and I love the products available.
I disliked being limited to products I hadn’t used myself or not having the options or styles I would recommend. It feels good to be able to promote stuff I would want or already have myself.
However currently I have not made a sale, perhaps affiliate marketing isn’t for me. But I’m happy to persevere for a bit longer and see what happens.
Im doing more research into it and building my knowledge as I fumble along.
Omg, the spam comments people!! Crazy im getting like 10-20 a day! sooo frustrating. If your a spammer searching throughout this post you can just click the bright red x and leave. I will just delete you.
Ok rant done haha
Goals for this next month blogging.
Work on my email list.
Run a giveaway on Facebook to help boost my reach.
Create some giveaway content to help owners with skin problem pets. I have written a lot of great content on pet skin issues. I am proud of it so I would love for it to be getting more traction.
That’s it from me, ill do another update in a month. Fingers crossed for success and fun.
As always, thanks for reading.
