I started CPA, Clickbank, and Amazon affiliates last 2007 while maintaining 2 blogs for my adsense. The result was still unsatisfactory...There were even times that I held 120 blogs for nothing...
I left my job last 2009 and focused on CPA while offering writing service. Since I was unemployed, I focused on the following (since end of 2009)
- 3 big sites dedicated to CPA (2 are top page of google)
- 1 adsense authority site about health (now with thousands of pages)
- 1 authority site for clickbank (with around 700 products)
- An article writing service
So, I only maintained 5 sites and 4 are heavily maintained. Also developing another new CB site started just few days ago..
I read thousands of ebooks in affiliate marketing, CPA adsense, clickbank, twitter, facebook, amazon, etc and frankly, I found them useless for someone like me who have passion in SEO. I have no plan to buy any of these ebooks anymore as most of the content are recycled.
After that very long journey in IM, I can say I am okay now with the sites I preferred to keep and maintain.
Reading new ebooks and new techniques everyday would result to nothing. That's my ultimate opinion...
How about you? What have you accomplished so far after 5 years of learning IM?
