not sure if now is a good time, my content site which relies mainly on adsense got into google just in time for the holidays but traffic isn't exactly great.
Oct - 41
Nov - 619
Dec - 1757 so far(would be more than 1800 but my host server was down for over 7 friggin hours today!)
The growth looks promising(estimated bookmarks of just under 10%), checking my logs I notice two search phrases with nearly 5-6x the amount of searches compared to everything else. I've been considering submitting these pages to inktomi with paid inclusion to boost traffic a bit more.
$40 per year seems reasonable if I can make more than that through adsense and perhaps some affiliate links soon.
Google is top referring engine so far at 77.5%, next is yahoo at 17.8%, MSN is way down at the bottom 0.1% with 2 pages.
I don't think I'm even in MSN anymore, last month I got 16 referrals from that engine but had less than half the traffic.
Is there a chance I can get a decent position in inktomi(MSN, Yahoo soon, etc) if my position in google for those specific search terms are also pretty good?(page 1)
I don't know if I should wait until I'm making a decent amount of money before paying for stuff like inclusion(no guarantee of good listing). I do ok with adwords as I made more than I spent but without url tracking I'm not totally sure about which site got the clicks
Inktomi's search bot came by the site the other day also, would I be better off waiting to see if it picks it up or will take really long vs 48 hour with paid?
it's past 5am and I think I'm rambling now.. I'll leave it at that.

I think i would wait and see before paying, butof course i would never pay especially after the bot passed by. I would give it a week or so.
dont dismiss msn either once the new internet explorer comes out with built in search bar it will become more of a player IMHO of course
parasites = no money
no parasites = money
money is the choice im making i will see you there!!
