Newest Satellite Site:

Reduce College Costs .comOur latest satellite site is now up and is called Reduce College Costs. While I’m not sure if any of you will be able to notice, this one is a bit different from the others we’ve created. I won’t go into the details right now because I’m curious if anyone can guess (if anyone even wants to) what is different, but will explain a bit later.

While this site needs a lot more material added to it, it shouldn’t be too difficult for me to do since I will be writing similar offerings for the other blog I help my niece out with at Financial Baby Steps. The plan is to go through Financial baby Steps this weekend and pick out the material that can also be used on the website to hopefully fill it in a bit more. Then to something new every week to two weeks to keep it updated on a fairly regular basis.

Nate and I had a long talk about where we are and what we want to achieve. From that conversation we have come up with some new ideas we’re going to try out over the next couple of months. While they may not seem radical to most, they are a complete switch in direction from how we first envisioned doing this. It should be a fun experiment to see if it works and I’ll detail it along the way.

We have also caved into the pressure of changing the looks of the satellite sites. We originally had them sparse with little extras to try and make them extremely search engine friendly. Some of you have pointed out that they look too basic and so we will update them with a new design in the coming months. We’re hoping that this change may help to boost traffic and earnings a bit.

  1. It probably is something that should be obvious, but I can’t spot the difference between your newest site and the others. Is it that Reduce College Costs is more informal and personal? After reading all of them, I have to say this one has been the most enjoyable one to read so far, so keep up whatever it is you’re doing!

  2. I would suggest creating a CSS template so all of the sites looked a different. CSS is very easy to learn and implement, and makes it easy to give a site a bit of color and originality.

    Anyway, you are doing much better than me with Adsense on your satellite sites, so perhaps your strategy is fine.
