#6 Building a Blog in Public – Getting Some Traction

Hey folks!

It’s the 6th week since I started the challenge of building and growing a blog to 10k monthly visitors by the end of 2022, and the growth is pretty good so far.

The site is getting clicks and impressions from Google and the graph is rising exponentially as you can see in the screenshot of the Google Search Console below.

As the massive 4000-word guide that we published 2 weeks ago is ranking at the 8th position, I am hoping to see some more growth and clicks in the coming weeks. I am sure the ranking would come up slowly.

Stephen from SEO Chatter tweeted about the guide earlier this morning which surely brought some visitors to the site. I am absolutely loving it.

Apart from this, we’ve now got 6 email subscribers for the 7-day SEO email course, even though the course is not yet ready. We are still working on the email course, and not sure why but creating an email course seems tougher than writing massive guides. Maybe because we’ve never done it earlier. Probably!

We’re also starting a backlink outreach campaign this week where we’ll be focusing on three techniques of getting backlinks — infographic technique, guest posting, and requesting to add links as a resource (which is probably called the skyscraper technique). I will be sharing more about this in the coming weeks.

I am running a bit slower than expected on the content creation part but it’s not too bad. Bikash is not at all messing around though, he’s piling up all those topic ideas one-by-one as you can see in the above screenshot.

That’s pretty much it for the week.
