🛠 Choosing a tech stack:
"Common piece of advice is: choose a tech stack you're familiar with. That's mostly true but I also try to find a good balance between what I know, and what is a good fit for the project."
🗣 Discussions and user engagement:
"Some subreddits loved the rankings, others not so much. When people disagree with the rankings, it almost gets more attention. I kinda like the rankings not to be perfect because it makes people talk about it."
📈 SEO tips
"My site should not rank well as it doesn't have original content so I made sure it was super fast via caching, image resize... I also focused on good page titles, good page structure, load enough amount of content in each page and use internal links."
"Traffic started coming from good SEO. In the beginning, I had a hard time getting approved to display ads so I decided to try affiliate links and see if those worked. That generated a little bit of revenue and eventually, I got approved to display ads."
