I suffered a lot of allergies and migraines this week and wasn’t able to properly focus I’ll be sure to post updates for next week.
So I finally got my first sticker sheet and I'm in love with them! Now What I plan to do is is wait till I achieve a total of $15 on Patreon. Once I achieve $15 a month i'll be giving out stickers with free stickers to all Patrons, any patrons from tiers $5 and higher will get to vote on what stickers will be made next month. The Stickers can vary from fan art to characters from Star Spirit!
Anyways please consider supporting me on Patreon it would be a huge help and you will get some pretty dank rewards from it, I guarantee it!
So I've been running my website, Onnimanga.com, for over 2 years now. I have over 100 comic pages posted and over 700 viewers a week and yet I still don't qualify for adsense, Why? Not enough content and difficult navigation.
Not enough content:
Obvious this isn't true since I have over 100 images on my site but the problem is that whomever is "reviewing" doesn't consider images as content, and for a site that's just for hosting comic pages there isn't anything I can do about it.
Difficult to navigate through:
Now I can see how my site might be difficult to navigate, and if you're a frequent visitor to my site, please let me know how I can improve. Aside from that this is my major issue, I don't think my site is difficult to navigate through but this is my theory of what's going on.
The "reviewer" is a bot:
I'm almost 90% that whomever is reviewing all the ad sense applications is a robot and this robot doesn't know how to navigate through images. How I set up my site is I have an image and I embed that image with a link to another part of the site to basically work as a button, sounds simple right? Now there is no other way to access that page unless you have the link or click on the image with that link, this to a robot can sound difficult because it has to physically navigate through my page for a while to find that page. Now another thing is if the robot can use those images to access the next page it sees the link as a "pop-up". So TL;DR If there's a robot reviewing sites it's actually pretty stupid.
So what am I going to do?:
I'm probably going to have to edit the site in a way a robot can understand it, there's no other way for me to make money off the site if I can't get passed the review stage. So slowly but surely i'm going to make these edits. Edits I will be making to the site: being able to see the chapters and pages from the homepage tabs, also I will be changing the archive system where instead of just putting the image there with the link to the page, I'm just going to write the page number with a link to it so that way there's more words on the site, thus "more content".
This is going to be so time consuming and I was already working on fixing the buttons and weebly(The site hosting my site) does a pretty bad job at making things organized.
I opened up a patreon, any support is appreciated. You can get access to wips and future projects. Also if I get enough support I'll throw in free stickers!
You can access my patreon by clicking the link or the banner:
I'll be going to Amazing Comic con on Sunday August 27, 2017, maybe even Saturday. If you see me there I will be handing out business cards and free traditional doodles.
Hey guys Sonicsis here. So there will be no Star Spirit update this week, I was very busy with personal matters however I will be updating next week as scheduled.
Another thing is I will be updating the arrows in the Star Spirit comic. The thing had a long over due re-do since I made those arrows back in my wee highschool years, but now that I'm a graphic design student with much knowledge I'm going to change them now. It's going to take a while since I have 5 chapters worth of arrows to change but never the less I will change it! Last time I did a major arrow change it took me an entire day, and that was back when I only had 2 chapters of Star Spirit! So wish me luck!
Now you can read Star Spirit much easier on mobile, I know mobile is bad on this site(sorry) weebly does this weird thing where any edits done on mobile mode will edit the main site and everything will be shifted.
The comic there will be updated on a Chapter-by-chapter basis.
I'll slowly be posting all the current completed chapters, I lost my flash drive with all the chapters so I have to download them all again.
Hey Sonicsis here! I just want to let you guys know I'll be taking a quick break from Star Spirit this month but I'll be returning on August. I will be working on Commissions and fan comics in the mean time, I just need a break.
