Happy New Year! My Goals for 2012 and Weekly Round-Up

Happy New Year everyone! I cannot believe that it’s already 2012, can you!? I guess my parents were right, as you get older, time goes by even faster. I guess I should cherish my time a little more each day before it escapes me entirely. Anyway, let’s get on with the goals for 2012!

Goals for 2012

This site is still basically brand new, but I have some big plans for 2012!

  1. Be on the first page of Google for the searched phrase, “Passive Income”, and “Creating a Passive Income”
  2. Gain 250 subscribers
  3. Maintain a Page Rank of 3
  4. Have 40,000 visits to this site in 2012
  5. Earn $5,000 from this site alone

Those are the big five goals! I’ll no-doubt be making smaller, more manageable goals along the way, but by the end of 2012, I’ll hopefully have a check-mark next to each of these goals! 🙂

    1. I can’t wait to tackle my goals for 2012! There’s just something about working towards a goal that lights a fire under my butt!

  1. I respect your #1 keyword ranking goal. If you work hard and get close to that, the other goals should fall into place pretty easily. If I had focused on keywords early on (instead of at the tail end), growth would have been a lot easier.

    Thanks for the inlcude!

    1. Very true. I didn’t focus too much on keywords with my other site either. I’m glad I get a second chance. I think I’m doing pretty good so far! 🙂

    1. Very true. It’s odd, because 40 year olds used to seem like grandparents to me. Now they remind me of big kids. 😉 I think I’m always going to act like I’m 18 – life’s more fun that way.

      1. 40-year-olds are just big kids! This year is the year I go from “little” kid to “big” kid and I’m excited about it. When I was 20-something, I never thought I’d say that about turning 40. 🙂

    1. I thought that goals were doable too! I won’t have a ton of time to focus on them, but as long as I keep writing quality content, they should take care of themselves. 🙂

  2. That page one ranking is going to be really tough, especially since most people targeting it know about SEO. However, nothing is impossible – especially if some of the top 10 have gotten complacent.

    I wish you well!
