So this will be a small post, just a brief follow up about nascarnews.tk. Generally I hear nothing good about .tk domains, or maybe its just that its more difficult to find a free host that will host that will host them. Due to the fact that spammers abuse this. This probably why I am not able to access nascarnews.tk from home on my att&t u-verse connection. Tried correcting that but, I dont have patience for something that will take more that 15 mins to fix, maybe some other day. Any way what I have noticed is that google will not index all the pages as they would regular site, it also takes twice as long to start showing impressions at least based on my experience. At least the good news is that the pages to get indexed and impressions do start show up. I was exited to see it start happening first 5 impressions after weeks of none, the next day 16 impressions. Expecting more the next day I was let down, zero impressions =( also no clicks yet. Time will tell though there is constant posts being made every hour.
So My latest experiment involves a few things. Mostly I am trying to populate a site with only rss feeds. I know of two sites that have done extremely well, doing well over 20k impressions according to Google Analytics. My site is i about NASCAR I choose this not because I am NASCAR fan, but because there are 2.24 million monthly searches. So the traffic is there, and I though it would be easy finding rss feeds for NASCAR. The second part that I am interested in is .tk domains. They are free domain names if haven’t heard. I am also testing this on a free hosting account. You can see the site here. You will notice that the site is very plain and not very exciting. I have noticed with free hosting that server speed is not that fast, so editing things takes longer. Besides this more about testing how many views and how many impressions I will get based on rss feeds. Jon Cooper a co-worker is also running one of these sites and right way after launching it he had 30 impressions the first day. I also recomend following his blog. Since I launched it yesterday I will have to wait till tomorrow to see how its doing. I will give up date next week on this project is progressing.
