The Indie Hacker Grind (September Edition)

All of our initial 43 methods are complete! A few methods were combined along the way so we ended up with 43. We still have a few images to finish, but that is the last task to finish off our initial methods content development. Pretty exciting! As you can see below, we are seeing some decent organic web traffic increases too. Our web pages have an average search position of 22.6, which is really pretty awesome considering we only have 5 backlinks to our site. With the back to school season we are also seeing quite a few more impressions and clicks than previous months as well.

Next steps include deciding how to integrate our “run your statstest here” solution into the app, writing blog posts to improve our marketing numbers, and exploring other potential ways to generate revenue to make this a sustainable (and constantly improving) site. We would like to add additional examples, video demos, and word definitions, but it all takes time. We’re hoping to find some initial revenue sources to fund additional content development.
