This month wasn’t anywhere near as great as last month, but it still wasn’t bad if you consider I was on vacation for two weeks at the beginning of the month. Being on vacation meant that I couldn’t spend time answering customer questions about niche sites and actively promote my listings. Regardless of the low sales, let’s check out what I DID get accomplished:
1. I totally redesigned the Mike From Maine website. I bought the Balance theme from Studio Press. I was going to have a theme designed specifically for the site, but found this theme and really liked it. I also had a custom header made for it at 99 Designs that I’m super happy with. I hope you all like the new look.
2. A lot of my expenses in August went to sites that I’m actively building right now. When they’re all finished I’ll have a total of 683 niche websites! I’d like to have over 1,000 by November. In order to make all these sites I’m going to have to start selling a lot of sites.
3. I published a video post that was super popular with my readers about link building. I’ve received a lot of emails and messages thanking me for this really effective link building method. If you didn’t read/watch it you can HERE.
4. I took my first step into creating another stream of income that’s not connected to Adsense or niche websites. I’ll be publishing my results, whether good or bad, sometime this month. You can check out what I’m doing HERE.

So what’s new for September?

I’m going to be focusing on selling a lot of sites this month. I’ve added a ton of new sites to my Sites For Sale page. I’ve even added some sites in the lower price ranges to attract buyers who want to build niche sites but don’t have a huge budget. I expect these sites to sell quite quickly this month.

I also have two awesome sites up on Flippa right now. One of them made $51.43 in the last 30 days, and the other made $169.50. If you’re interested in checking them out or bidding on them you can at: 

An interesting thing about these two sites is that both of them only have one page on them. Anyone trying to tell you that you need a lot of content to rank in Google is full of poo. These two sites are living proof.

Well that’s it for this month.

Thanks for all your support!
