About My Site – Palla Sridhar
This site was started in 2010 with an article about “Bootmgr problem in Windows 7“. It was on Blogger initially. Later, I purchased a custom domain.
I (Palla Sridhar) found that Windows had its share of problems. Microsoft community forums did not address the issue in an elegant way.
The number of threads were too many. You had to scroll through different answers to find the acceptable solution.
My passion was about Microsoft Products since college days. So I started by blogging journey on error code solutions, tutorials and reviews about Windows 7, Outlook, Office etc.
My Traffic – Palla Sridhar
My blog had a traffic of around ~ 1.2 million pageviews in the past 2 years. This was the period from July 2018 to May 2020.
This site receives well over 100k pageviews as of May 2020. The main traffic comes from US, UK, CAN, AUS and INDIA.
On an average, the average time on page is around ~6 secs with a bounce rate of 85%.
I (Palla Sridhar) switched my domain from my pallareviews.com to windowstechit.com, fearing an EMD (Exact Match Domain) penalty from Google.
From 2013 to 2018, I received traffic of around ~2.4 million pageviews. Since I was on a regular job till then, I couldn’t concentrate much on content promotion and seo services during this period.
But as of 2020, the traffic has reached around ~3k pageviews daily. The number of sessions and unique visitors are slightly less.
My Online Income
Revenue generating opportunities lie in Google Adsense, Affiliate Marketing, Sponsored Posts, Video Ad networks.
I generated around $25k from Adsense, Sponsored Posts, Video Ads from this blog alone in 10 years.
This is additional digital income from sponsored posts and video ads. It converts to around 2 million INR rupees. Though it is not a big deal over a span of 10 years, it is a proof of my expertise and power of blogging.
I find the common problems arising in the above products and find solutions through forums and experience.
My interests in blogging extend to Technology, Health, Mobile Gadgets, Engineering, Computers, Software, Internet Marketing, Social Media and SEO.
It is one of the best digital solution provider in Visakhapatnam.
Why I’m into Blogging and My views?
In 2008, I came across Blogging as one of the online jobs to make money online.
Initially, I was into Blogging because of passion for writing and passive income. But I had to struggle much in the initial days.
I wanted to put my ideas on a platform that will be useful to the common Windows and Technology user.
Several problems had neither solutions or were complicated. I preferred to write the answers in a easy understanding manner.
No resources, money and expertise to take my blogging business to the next level.
I learnt the difficult path of other penny bloggers. You cannot earn money from blogs like other day jobs.
You need to have passion, content writing skills, SEO and mainly marketing skills.
If you want to earn good enough from blogging, you should also spend wisely on SEO services and public relations.
As of 2021, I’m using DreamHost DreamPress plan (Managed WordPress hosting) for my WordPress blogs.
This costs me around $400/year.
I see instant boost in WordPress Dashboard operations after using this plan.
Earlier I was on shared hosting. It was little slow with daily operations – for eg. when I click post, page, or create a post, etc it took some time to complete the process.
Also deactivating and activating plugins took lot of time. This reduced after I changed to DreamPress plan.
I am using name.com as my DNS provider.
Till now, their support is excellent and speed is also good. You also get added security without any plugin.
From 2016 to 2019, I have been using SiteGround to host my WordPress blogs.
Before 2016, I was using InmotionHosting for their VPS-1000S plan. But I found that it is costly on renewal like $500 and had to avoid it.
I also use several WordPress plugins on my blogs. This list of plugins are very useful, as I have tested them vigorously.
The most essential ones are used and I avoid unnecessary ones, which may cause slow page loading, high usage of CPU and Bandwidth resources.
What is My System Configuration?
I use a Desktop PC.
I changed to single boot configuration in 2020
- 64 bit – Windows 10
It is because dual boot confuses a lot. Though it can be used for troubleshooting problems, I prefer to use another laptop for Windows 7.
I now could concentrate only on my blogging work. Previously I was playing with booting options and changing the OS. It was waste of time. Also Windows 10 and 8.1 are the only supported OS by Microsoft. They also have updates.
My System configuration looks like this –
