Tortekolaci.com goes over the 10 million pageviews mark – ran as a family business

I am happy to announce that one of the online properties in the Prelovac Media network, the local cooking recipes site TorteKolaci.com has passed the mark of 10 million pageviews a month and continues to grow.

The site started just two years ago and is run by my brother and his wife as a small family business.

What makes is a great success is that both of them had no previous knowledge of Internet, marketing, SEO, WordPress or anything that would help them run a website. Not only the site has become one of the largest portals on the Balkans but with the huge number of genuine facebook fans (around 200,000 now!) is one of the largest online communities in this part of the world. Facebook also attributes nearly 2,500,000 pageviews every month.

This just proves that virtually anyone can run a successful Internet business if they are passionate about it.

I previously wrote about the site in this Facebook case-study.

    "This just proves that virtually anyone can run a successful Internet business if they are passionate about it ..." and have you as a brother :) I doubt you have no experience in SEO or WordPress.

    Vladimir, Excellent work! I really like that I can read the recipes in English.

    The colors and artwork are perfect for the site. They make everything bright and fun.
    The site navigation is very easy to use.

    Besides the banner ads what other ways are they creating an income from the site?

      Thank you Paul. We did English translations through an official translator.

      Currently only the banner ads are used.
