Secondary point: Proof that the internet won’t collapse and implode if you happen to go do other things and aren’t on top of your niche project every moment.
So I was happy to reach a few milestones on both of the niche sites that I started this year. It had been three months and traffic was picking up, rankings seemed to be improving. A few sales even came in.
Then I got distracted... it’s summertime, the kids are home, my nephew came to visit for a few days, my mother-in-law was in the hospital briefly, we’re looking to buy a house this summer, my transcription business was a bit busy, and all those things started to just jumble together from day to day and I was utterly distracted.
Over the last two or three weeks I didn’t seek new links to either site. I didn’t add new content to either site. I hadn’t even sat down to email my virtual assistant to ask her to do any of those things, because I completely lost track of what step I was on and what I intended to do… so for awhile, nothing happened at all for those projects. Seriously, not a darn thing.
The good news? My rankings held and I’m exactly where I left off. I didn’t have a sudden drop in SERPs. I even had another sale.
The world will not if you get distracted. It happens. Just jump back into things and keep pushing forward 😉
