My blog is not about money
Recently, I scored an ‘SEO hit’ – a blog post explaining simply and easily how to access the Pirate Bay.
My traffic graph exploded. Suddenly I had to take note of the skills I’ve built up at scaling websites rapidly which fortunately, wasn’t very difficult for me.
As the initial sense of “wow, I just increased my traffic logarithmically” faded, the business side of my brain started thinking
“Shouldn’t I be able to get advertising revenue from that kind of views?”
Obviously, the answer is yes. 10,000 page views = ~£10 via adsense. ’Yay’.
What I have realised is that for me, the real benefit of this blog – the really powerful part – is how fast and how far, with very little effort, I can share ideas and knowledge.
