        Try submitting the individual links. Do 5 a day and see if they get indexed.

        I tried that as well, but it doesn’t work 100%.
        Some get indexed and some don’t.
        And you can only do like 4-5 manually per day until you reach the limit.

      Here is mine… Progress is slow as measured by users/sessions/clicks, but there are good signs under the hood! We are learning lots and refining SOPs so.. that’s a win, regardless. Good luck, all!

      Hello everybody!
      Here’s my video! And this time, I decided to post the website summary and the video transcript as well.

      I have started a new website and here are the organic visit stats for November:
      – Website #1 (launched in September at the beginning of the challenge): 9
      – Website #2 (launched in November): 120

      Transcript:
      Welcome to another interview for the AI Niche Pursuit Challenge! This is our 2-month update with our favorite participant, Nadya from livingoffcloud.

      Q: My first question for you is: how do you feel about your progress so far?

      I feel very well! This time my progress is much better than it was the last time. I have started a new website! And this website seems to be more successful than the first one. I already have about 120 organic visits in November and the website was launched on November 6th. It is a seasonal niche and there was a lot of demand in this niche during November.

      Q: That is great news! Are you doing anything differently with this new website? Are you using the same strategy for producing the AI content?

      I moved away from Surfer SEO, which I was using the last time for the first website. Now I generate my content exclusively in chat GPT 4.

      Q. Do you feel like your increased success with this second website is due to your change of strategy for producing AI content?

      I do not think so. I think it i due to selecting a better-suited niche in which it is easier to produce unique content.

      Q: Yes, unique content, very important nowadays! What about the negative, have your faced any challenges with this new website?

      Uploading content to the website is labor-intensive and it slows me down. At the moment, I’m striving to make two posts per day.

      Q: Can you explain what is so hard about uploading content? I would have expected uploading the contents to be a small amount of effort compared to creating the contents.

      It’s all about the images. You need to download the images, resize them, upload the images to the website, add Alt text, and so on. This is where all the efforts are going to.

      Q: I see! One last question from me: What will be your strategy going forward to get more organic traffic?

      The strategy is very simple: produce more relevant content. The website has only about 21 articles so far and this is definitely not much. What I’ve learned is that I need to produce at least 100 articles to start seeing more serious traffic.

      Q: And you have learned that from previous endeavors, not this AI challenge, right?

      I learned it during this AI challenge from an interview Spencer made with somebody who is using AI to generate content for their websites.

      Well, that’s all the time we had for today, thank you for answering my questions, and best of luck with the AI Niche Pursuits Challenge!

      Hey all, here’s my month 2 report:

      The tool I mentioned that I’m now using to create articles is Poe. I simply made a GPT-4-powered bot, gave it my detailed instructions, and now it outputs articles exactly to my specifications. All I have to do is provide the target keyword.

      Quick Answers

      1. How do you feel about your progress so far? What’s working? Good. Got a lot done. Met goal for number of posts.
      2. What challenges have you faced? Time mostly. It’s hard fitting it all in. And waiting on AI images to get generated seems to take a long time.
      3. What will be your strategy going forward to get more organic traffic? Build you the Youtube/Rumble Channels. Post more content. Continue internal link building.

      Hi ya’ Folks.
      It looks like I need to spend a lot more time and a lot more effort with this project if I intend to even get traffic, let alone with a contest.
      I am learning, and I am still looking for my ship to come in with blogging. So far I have the oar to my ship, still working on the rest of it.
      Here’s to working for it. Good Luck, ya’ll.

      My video Update – https://youtu.be/ohCfhB8lOVc The biggest thing is content don’t get indexed.. it seems Google know these are AI generated content. Or it’s just with new blogs. Google is not trusting new blogs… Didn’t publish any post… Just wating. In December, I will publish more content…

      Month 2 Update for the AI-Niche site challenge. Hardly an Update πŸ™‚

    • #14666

      Here is my update.

      Things are looking good. The site is growing but slowly. My challenge has been formatting the articles and adding images. (It’s very time consuming, given that I publish around 4 articles a day.
      Bing has started to rank my site and bringing in traffic, so next month I might start getting a lot of traffic from Bing.
      I’ve worked on Pinterest but I’ve only gotten 4 clicks, (very demotivating), but that won’t stop me, I’ll keep posting on Pinterest.

      Since I have hundreds of posts, I’ve started Interlinking. Hopefully it’ll improves the rankings.
      My strategy for the next month is to just be consistent with my publishing schedule, and keep looking for low competitive keywords.
      I’ll also try to edit and optimize the posts ranking in top 20, so that they keep rank higher.

      Overall I’m satisfied with the progress, as long as the site keeps growing upwards.

      I didn’t do much in month 2 besides post articles that were auto-scheduled each day. The site has 466 total articles and had 46 organic sessions in November. I need to start optimizing these live posts ASAP!!! Good luck and have a great December!

      Hello everyone,

      Here is my update: https://youtu.be/fAh9sxP4tFI

      Lawfred.com has 2,589 posts with 2,126 indexed using the Google Indexing API and a custom script I wrote. However, the content is thin with only short legal definitions for each post and I only had 24 clicks in GSC for November. I need to add some examples to each legal definition post and add internal linking to help them rank higher in search results.

      I have yet to add any content to the other 2 sites I am building, but when I do I will cross-link between the 3 sites like my own little mini PBN.

      Month 2 Update: I went full throttle on a niche I thought was the one, but turns out, it was a total dead-end. Spent ages crafting content that never saw the light of day. Talk about a facepalm moment! Learn more about it in my update video https://youtu.be/YcY40bI7U6M

      Here’s my update

      I had a delay, due to other projects, and so I have started my sites more than two months late. I bought the domains the week after the challenge started, and even finished setting up the themes, plugins, Search Console, Analytics, etc. However, for the entire month of October and November, I did not post a single article on any of the 21 sites that am running for this challenge. My first posts were on 8th December (7th in some Timezones), whereby I posted 5 articles on each of the 21 websites. Going forward, I will be posting 2 articles per day, on each of the 21 websites. Let’s see if I will be able to catch up with the rest of the contestants!

      Well didn’t know when I joked that I would be launching in month 4 how realistic that was. I’m in an electric car in Kodak Tennessee, lol, life is strange. Going to take a hike will the car sucks on the AC line. Apparently, Rivian installed this port as a promotion and it’s still operating. There is really very little around here. Driving an electric car heightens your awareness of distance. You always must be able to get to the next charging station and have a backup station planned if the pad is down. Walmart has chargers in this area and so the travel has been from one Walmart to another, every 120 miles I must break for 45 minutes to get enough charge to go the next 120 miles.
