My Jumperoo site just hit page 1 of Google UK, 10 days after launching it. I can also see it’s on page 3 of Google US.
It’s also doing okay for my secondary keywords too.
My Amazon UK affiliate account has just been approved, and I now have 3 orders showing.
I’ve now reset my stats for the site as I expect to see an increase in traffic other than people visiting from this blog, and I want to see where it’s coming from. So far it’s been a trickle from Yahoo and Google.
I know that when my site gets to slot 1 (and it will in time thanks to the linking strategy I’ve adopted), that I’ll get a huge amount of traffic to it. When I start to see that increased traffic, I’ll tinker with the site and improve it, adding more content and stronger calls to action.
I think I read a while back that something like 65% of the traffic goes to whoever’s in slot 1, with the remaining traffic being distributed over the remainder of page 1, and very little going to page 2, maybe 2%.
I believe that even without the link strategy, the site will do quite well anyway, as I’ve seen it slowly rising up the ranks, and I’ve hardly touched it since I launched it 10 days ago.
Have I already said this? IPK works!
P.S. If you haven’t already grabbed it, you can get IPK by going here and then entering promo code FHW777 to get it at $79 instead of $147.
