SBI Diary from 2011 onwards...
"How I built my second Site Build It! website..."
Progress from 2011 to 201X
Hello, my name is Steve
M Nash and I'm the owner of a popular Site Build It! website called
HowIPromoteMyWebsite.com and a second SBI! site called SelfHelpCollective.com (established in Feb, 2008). I'm also the site owner of several 'ordinary' (non-SBI!) websites like
TextMeFree.com, Photos4.co.uk and ShopTour.co.uk
This is the final page of my sbi diary - detailing my progress from the year 2011 onwards to 2012, 2013 etc.
This is the page that I will state my main ambitions for SelfHelpCollective.com. I won't update this sbi diary very often from now on - only doing so when a particular milestone is met (see below)
Of course, if you're reading this page, and you don't know what SBI! is, then read
this preamble at the very beginning of this diary first.

2009 | 2010
of my SBI! journey:
>> 201X <<
From now on, I have the following goals for SelfHelpCollective.com - working 1 day a week, directly on the site:
And you can read more below, or read
other summaries here...
- Earn more money from the site.
So far the Self Help Collective site earns a few hundred dollars per month, mainly from Google Adsense. I intend to earn more from Adsense, as well as diversify income sources - doing better with affiliate programs, selling own product etc.
I will go through the monetization part of the SBI! Action Guide, and spend time on the forums to help me do this.
Aim to earn $1000 per month, then $2000 etc. until... $10,000!
- Add more pages to
I'm only going to add up to 50 more pages
to the site, now. All other pages will be user-generated, using the excellent Content 2 module!
This will mean I will need to improve how I implement C2 - but this is doable, with focus, determination and patience. (In other words, this means improving the 'collective experience' of the site, and encouraging everyone to share their wisdom!)
- Get more people to visit the site
So far the site is getting 1300+ unique visitors per day, and the aim is to reach 2000, then 3000... all the way up to 10,000 uniques.
I may need to do some guest blog posts, write more articles, and spend more time on social platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
Summary of 2010|| |
2011 begins (yay!)...
After the blip in traffic in December - less than 1000 uniques per day - traffic to the Self Help Collective site is now heading in the right direction: 1300 uniques. Long may it continue...
Good news in Sept 2011... site achieves 3021 daily unique visitors! :-)
Bad news in Oct 2011... site is hit by so-called Google Panda 2.52 update, and traffic reduces to 2401 daily unique visitors
Overall, though, more pages have been added to the site (including this relationship advice forum, and how to change the world), and the site continues onwards...
2012 (coming soon!)...
