Another great update. It’s great to follow your journey on trying to generate income from your site!
Have you thought at all about running ads on your site as well?
Excited to follow the niche site to see how it grows!
Hey there Matt!
This blog isn’t getting much traffic, hence I don’t think it’s even reasonable to run ads here.
However the niche site I am building is getting more traffic and I’ve set up Google Adsense for now, I tried applying to Ezoic, but they rejected me and now I have to wait 1 year to re-apply … My goal was to get 10k visitors per month and use Ezoic ads, but oh well.
The next and very big milestone is to get 50k visitors and get approved to MediaVine.
I hope this answers your question.
Are you running ads on your blog? How many visitors are you getting and what ad platform are you using?
Your journey is interestinbg but it is a pity you don’t give much tips or process on how you set up things.
I especially think about your e-shop and the niche site.
Would be very interested to know more about how you run them.
If you got any questions for me, just let me know, would gladly answer.
