Absolutely! Nothing more frustrating than lost opportunity...
Hey Nick,Great post, thanks for sharing.
Definitely a nice read. But I wonder why no one asks how it's possible to get 100000 visitors with just 15 posts which you wrote in your second project.
Probably because the volume of posts has no direct correlation to traffic... there are so. many. posts. in the wild that received hundreds of thousands of visits per month on their own, let alone site wide. Also, if you want to read the case study on the follow-up project, it's posted here: http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2254983/From-0-to-1.4-Million-Visitors-in-6-Months-A-Lesson-in-Building-Organic-Traffic
Very inspiring blog post. It actually pushed me to rethink my approach to content creation and starting with a solid keyword-research foundation. Building a site right now based on a review of 10k+ keywords after combining keyword value (traffic x average CPC) and SERP competition (custom built model). Thanks for the inspiration Nick!
Thanks a lot George.
