ScubaOtter is an educational affiliate marketing website in the scuba diving, snorkeling, and travel niche.

Starting from December 2019, I’ll be tracking the website views, earnings, and more all on this page.

Check back every month to see how the sites doing!

March 2020

Improvements

Lots of backlinks and revising old content. Created some new pages that should get some natural backlinks over time.

Mix of HARO links and guest posts. The goal is to start building some naturally so a lot of my new content is going to be linkable assets.

New Articles Published: 3

My writers are still upgrading new content for the most part. I went diving in Costa Rica so I created a scuba diving Costa Rica guide.

Instagram Account:

Growing pretty quickly. Over 500 new followers.

Pinterest Account:

Earnings: $64.48

As expected, one of the most promising months so far. The sales are more spread out and we're on pace to be much higher until Corona happened.

Amazon Affiliate

Did $19.38 on Amazon this month. Not too many people thinking about scuba diving these days. Selling some hand sanitizer through the links as well.

Liveaboard.com

Nothing this month, some clicks. Don't expect anyone to book a liveaboard until the Corona situation settles down.

Diving Insurance Affiliate

WorldNomads affiliate is doing pretty well with $45.1 in commission. The diving insurance page ranks pretty well so we've been getting some sales.

As Corona become more widespread the search interest pretty much died out. One person refunded their policy as well.

Traffic

Similar traffic as last month with 2,288 views. Was on pace to more than break last months traffic but the search volume is really down due to Corona.

February 2020

Improvements

Moved the site to Wordpress completely. Much easier for the team and I to work with. Revising old content, building links through guest posts and HARO.

A few from guest posts and some from HARO. HARO's been going really well, around a 10-15% conversion rate.

New Articles Published: 0

Working on improving old guides at the moment. We revised 5 old articles bring them up to a much higher standard.

Pinterest Account:

Earnings: $5.98

Amazon Affiliate

We made a whole $5.98! Not worried at all about the low numbers, traffic is picking up more and more.

Liveaboard.com

Nothing this month. A few clicks here and there. Ignore that spike, was probably from a bot.

Diving Insurance Affiliate

My "best diving insurance" page is ranking higher and higher everyday. No sales yet, but here are the programs I'm working with.

Insurance Affiliate Programs:

WorldNomads

DiveAssure

Divers Alert Network

Should start selling some soon.

Traffic

Did 2,283 unique page views in February. Traffics really starting to pick up and hitting new ATHs almost every day.

January 2020

Improvements

Pumped out higher quality content and working toward getting social media accounts (Instagram and Pinterest) rolling.

Number of Backlinks Built: 5

New Articles Published: 5

Earnings: $141.98

Amazon Affiliate

Liveaboard.com

Booked our first Liveaboard for a nice 125 Euro commission!

Had some issues with Google Analytics tracking this month. We'll have to use Ahrefs Data.

December 2019

Improvements

In December, I focused on automating the content creation process and hiring additional writers that scuba dive.

Number of Backlinks Built: 2

New Articles Published: 6

Earnings: $5.49

ScubaOtter made $5.49 in December 2019. Can easily increase this over the next few months to be a few hundred.

Traffic

No general trend, consistent with previous months.
