Hi! Welcome to the 5th month update on the niche site.

This is going to be a (very) short update on the niche site, as I’m going out to film for my YouTube channel for the first time tomorrow and there’s just lots to get done beforehand.


GSC November 2020

I haven’t written anything for the niche site since early October, but I got more clicks for November (compared to October), and almost 4 times the number of impressions (compared to October). That’s really cool.

I’m pretty excited because the first few months of starting the niche site I was still finding my footing and making lots of mistakes. The posts I have published feel like rubbish to me, and I intend to make them so much better in time to come. With better posts, I can expect higher traffic and eventually get around to monetizing.

November and December were my break months to stop and to reflect, and I plan to ramp up from January to December 2021. Let’s see where I can go from there.


After reflecting, I decided to start a YouTube channel to complement and boost my niche site.

I filmed a short YouTube clip in late November and found it to be incredibly difficult. I’m a little apprehensive about YouTube prospects from here but I’ll just try my best.

As always, thank you for reading and supporting this blog.

    Stats are looking good ! I’m also getting my first impressions after 3 months. You do need a LOT of patience for new sites, honestly it’s demoralising sometimes. But lets keep pushing! It will be worth it eventually

    It’s really interesting to look at the Google search results that end up making their way to my site. I have no idea how any of that works haha. Enjoyed this update!
