Together with my husband, I own and manage several content websites. What you might call “niche sites”, “authority sites”, or “niche blogs”. Before I talk about my history, here a quick snapshot of where our business is (October 2020 update).
Our portfolio includes currently 14 sites in various niches (not including this one).
A few are small sites with around 100 posts in them. Others have hundreds of posts in them. I’ve been working on these sites since 2018 and I have documented our progress here on Yeys.com.
We currently manage a team of five VA’s and three part-time editors, as well as more than 60 freelance writers. Together, we produce around 300-400 new blog posts every month. The sites make us more than $30,000 per month in revenue, about two thirds of that is profit.
You can read all about our business strategy and how well it’s coming along in my monthly traffic and revenue reports here. The last report was for September 2020. I’m currently taking a hiatus from the reports. You can read the reasons for that here.
More about me
I’m Anne. I’ve been a web publisher since 1998. Back then we were called webmasters and webmistresses and there were no blogs and huge dinosaurs roamed the face of the earth.
We were creating “websites” back at the time by coding HTML. By hand on Windows Notepad. CSS was just taking its first steps and we designed our sites using tables to hold together images of ugly menu buttons. Oh, if you wanted a website to really look neat, you could throw in a few animated gif’s with stars and thingies. Just not too many, mind, or it could really eat up your bandwidth.
We were Jacks (And Jills) Of All Trades. We coded in HTML and later in CSS, we wrote our content and of course, we
did SEO manipulated AltaVista to display our websites on their search results. Ahh… the good old days! I loved it!
I still love it today!
