I made my first post on this blog last January 12, 2007, but that is not the date that macuha.com was born. Macuha.com was born last January 4, 2007 after I registered the domain name. By that time, I started searching for an SEO-optimized template and SEO-friendly plugins. After 8 days, I formally launched this blog. So, I’m celebrating this blog’s anniversary on January 4, because that is the date macuha.com existed on the internet.
So, one year has passed. And what happened?
- Started from PR 0, now, it’s PR 4.
- Started from 0 RSS subscribers, now, it’s 270+.
- Started from 1 visitor (me), now averaging 2000 unique visitors per day.
- Started from a cheap Standard web hosting plan, now hosted on Dreamhost.
- Started from being an ordinary blogger, now called as Mr. Pinay $candal. Hehe.
- Won the Filipina Writing Project SEO prize for Google and Yahoo
- Started my mini-SEO contest.
- Considered as one of the Top Pinoy Probloggers of 2007 by Basapa.
Following Shoemoney’s foot steps, here’s my one year stats. I’ll do this every blog anniversary.
Internet cost: Nothing. My only SEO client pays for my Smart Bro connection.
Income: I earned around $1500 on this blog from Google Adsense, Kontera, Widgetbucks, and Adbrite combined.
Promotional Cost: $150 for my mini SEO contest.
Now, here are some traffic stats:
My Goals For My Second Anniversary:
- PR 5
- 500 RSS Subscribers
- 4000 Unique Visitors Per Day
- $1000 Google Adsense earning per month total from all of my blogs.
- Offer An Advertise On This Site Option and earn from it!
- Earn more from Admob
- A Bigger SEO Contest
Mini-SEO Contest Update! If you are closely watching my mini SEO contest, you already know that there’s a tight race on Google, while I see no change on Yahoo. Who’ll win on Google? Jehzlau? Itsonmytv? Or someone from behind will suddenly appear? Watch out for it!
