22 months down the line... and only made $1300. Time to pack it in?
I've finally made the plunge of joining the Warrior Forum after 2 years of lurking around. I hope that some of you with more experience and success can weigh in on my issue
So, let me tell you about my site.
I started it in February 2011. I have a skin condition called psoriasis that I've dealt with for a decade, and thought I could share my experience (and make some money doing so.)
At the time, I was a complete newbie, following the money trail of a guide I found online: I did a bit of keyword research, wrote articles, syndicated them on places such as EzineArticles.com and Twitted my blog updates.
Throughout it all, I always sought to give my readers well written and thoroughly researched posts, not just typical run-off-the-mill, spun copy.
However, I'm starting to feel like a hamster. Even with the work I'm doing, I'm still pretty much in the same spot.
In the time-span of 22 months, I've had around 80,000 visitors and made roughly $1,300. $800 came from a ClickBank product, $300 from Paypal and around $200 from Amazon.
There was a point where I was getting 400 visitors a day and made close to $150 for 4 months in a row, but lo and behold, my site bombed a week later with the Panda update. I'm still not sure why as I don't do anything blackhat.
My question is, should I pack it in and call it a day? I have a pretty demanding day job and its exhausting to keep shooting in the dark without hitting anything.
I'm not really sure if I'm making some serious mistakes, if I'm in the wrong niche, (or both :confused, so some sobering opinions from others would help out.
Raising a child is akin to knowing you're getting fired in 18 years and having to train your replacement without actively sabotaging them.
