Reached $100 in monthly revenue

Richard Reis @richardreeze

After implementing a new design, Most Recommended Books (https://www.mostrecommendedbooks.com/) reached $100 for the first time this month!

This is despite my mistake of rebuilding the site in React without knowing it would kill our SEO (whoops). We used to average 150 visitors a day with the old design, but this week we only averaged 12.

Despite less traffic, we are making more money per day and user session times have gone up. So the redesign was a good idea.

Right now I'm working on fixing my mistake (by rebuilding the site in Next.js). And I can't wait to see how much we make when our site and SEO are at their best!
