Update on Review Style Case Study

Well its been about six weeks since I launched my review style case study and I have good news and bad news.

My Best Web Host Ratings site uses the WPReview site plugin to let vititors leave their own comments and ratings about the web hosts they’ve used.  The idea is that people who are shopping around for a web host will find my site, read some of the reviews and comparisons, and click on one of my affiliate links.

The bad news is that I’ve really underpromoted it…I had planned a good sized article marketing campaign but I’ve only written two short articles.  I’ve only gotten 128 unique visitors to the site and there aren’t that many customer comments.  I added a few myself for the hosting providers I’ve used and some I got thanks to a forum post telling people they’d get a free link in return for a review.

However, there is some really good news.  Even though I’ve only gotten 128 visitors…I’ve made 2 sales!  Eash sale earned me $100.   that means I’ve already pocketed $200 with next to no traffic.  And you know what that means?

My combination of the Conduit Method and the WPReview site plugin looks like a winner!

Now it could just be a fluke so I really need to get some articles written and drive some more traffic to this site to really see its power.

If you’d like to help the study move along please go ahead and add your own web hosting review.  And please stumble it, digg it, and add it to any other social bookmarking site you use.

Thanks!  :)

    hope you have time to start promoting it more. Maybe you should outsource your articles so you can get a jump start.
