“What do you do at home?” That’s a question that always comes up when you meet another traveller in Asia. I like to say that I’m a travel blogger who is looking for the best country to retire cheap. That is of course a wee bit of an exaggeration. As you can see I’ve made $2.22. Still it counts right?
I always want more readers, and this post is really a thank you to all my faithful readers who are supporting my travelling retirement. Thank you, thank you, thank you. On average I’m getting about 50 page visits a day. That’s pretty good for a website that I made less than a month ago. I’m still working on my SEO (search engine optimization), I started up unranked like every other website, and the first time it actually appeared on page 5 of Google for the term “best countries to retire cheap” I was ecstatic, “Look look mom ! I did it! I was so happy”
Then my next goal was to actually optimize the website and now I’m page 3! Watch out CBS, Forbes & International Living, I’m coming for you……(cue Rocky soundtrack). You and I both know, dear readers, that the best place to bury a dead body is on page 3 of Google because nobody REALLY looks past page 1, but it’s me climbing up the ranks of articles, websites and blogs.( Levelling up and scoring points that’s a me, Mario!)
And it’s all thanks to you my dear loyal readers, all 50 of you that are helping keep me focused on this crazy adventure. I think I would be having a much more solitary trip without you guys keeping me focused. And much more of a mind numbing time if I didn’t know that you were all reading and supporting me. So, again thank you, thank you, thank you ! Who are these crazy 50 people who come to my website? According to Google analytics , it’s a 50/50 split male to female. You like sports, travelling, and food.
I love the fact that because of all of your interest I have made enough to to buy a bowl of Pad Thai and a cappuccino! My goal to get to $1 a day. Once I get there I’ll be doing another another happy dance.
I’ll update you all again next month, until then thank you again for helping me travel the world looking for the best countries to retire cheap!
