After Panda, I focused on improving my weekly email newsletter by switching to HTML format and adding images to go with all my articles. It is a lot of work, but a lot of my traffic is repeat visitors. My newsletter now has 50,000+ subscribers.
For the past year I have spent a lot of time using Pinterest and building up my following there. It is surprising how many followers you can get in a short amount of time if you really promote it. I am getting a lot of traffic from Pinterest now, and several of my posts have gone "viral" on there with 25,000 re-pins or more. I am still getting traffic from those posts.
A lot of sites in my niche are creating e-books for Kindle and that is what I am concentrating on this year. I have spent so much time in the past year trying to create great content for my site that I have a lot of material now to create some great e-books. There are people who have had a lot of success with this, so I am going to give it a try.
To replace some of my lost income I am now ghostwriting articles for other sites, and have had a lot of success with this the past couple of months and made some extra $$.
