Good day, my peeps!
I just came across this thread so I'm gonna share my site with you all. First let me say I knew nothing (and still don't know much) about building websites, coding, programming, etc. But I had this vision of turning one of my hobbies into an info site about a year and a half ago; I wish I still had a copy of my very first page I created for this site, but it's now well over 100 pages of info and currently getting about 70 organic only hits per day.
So here it is: TheMuscleProgram.com
I'm going to share a 2nd site I created with you because it's related to TheMuscleProgram.com. See, at first, I just wanted a landing page for my own program so that I could sell it online, but I also wanted an info site to post my own articles, workouts, videos and such. They were one-in-the-same for a while but I later decided to separate the two. So, I ended up creating a 2nd site (about a year ago) specifically for my product while keeping TheMuscleProgram.com its own entity (I do post banners on TheMuscleProgram.com to my product site as you'll see).
Here's the 2nd site (my product site): www.hardcoremusclebuildingprogram.com
Bottom line is that I never could've done this without BlueVoda. I knew nothing about creating site or online marketing, getting traffic and such. I don't claim to be a guru at it now but TheMuscleProgram.com, with over 100 pages, gets about 70 organic hits per day. I realize that's not a ton of hits; however, I chose an over-saturated market (anything in fitness is saturated) and not only that, but I cater it to a particular group of folks (those wanting bigger muscles). I used to pay for traffic but not anymore; I get more hits now organically than I ever did paying for it. Why?...what changed? I learned how to effectively use Header tags in BlueVoda and a few other tricks in BlueVoda - once I made those changes my traffic increased substantially witin a couple months (from like 20 organic hits to 70 or more per day). I only get about 10 hits a day on my 2nd (product) site but I've been adding more content so hopefully traffic will increase soon.
Sorry this is so long but I'm passionate about building my site and there are so many things I love about using BlueVoda. Heck, I even integrate my workout videos on Youtube into my pages ( I learned a lotta stuff WAY later on). Anyway, that's the short version of my little venture here! I bought my own name as a domain too and will be throwing up another site soon catered to metal music and guitar, which is my #1 passion. I'll share that once it's launched.
Wow...this is long...
