Your niche is dead.
Either dead or has so much competition that you're beating your head against a
Case in point.
The IM niche for me, as far as EZA goes, is dead.
Here is a small sample of articles I wrote and their views from last month (March)
Internet Marketing Tips - Friday, Friday - 5 views
Home Business Tips - You Can't Please Everybody - 4 views
Internet Marketing Tips - Do You Throw Them Under The Bus - 3 views
And they're all like that. Every single last one of them. Pitiful.
Here are just two of my Magic the Gathering articles from last month.
Gatecrash Deck Ideas - 5 Color Madness - 114 views
Gatecrash Deck Ideas - Biovisionary "I Win" Deck - 52 views
Hell, all I need to do is keep writing articles for Magic the Gathering deck
ideas (something every kid wants) and I can probably surpass the total number
of views and clicks that I have from over 2700 IM articles with maybe 100
Magic the Gathering articles.
My MtG list is growing faster than my IM niche and I think I have all of 10
articles out there, if that. Don't know, don't care.
I'm beating my head against a stone wall. I can't compete with the Mike
Filsaime's and Frank Kern's of this world and I'm a freaking moron for trying.
I could EASILY make a more than decent living online if I just concentrated
on areas that are profitable and not dominated by names so big that I'm
trying to fight Goliath with a pea shooter. I mean even David had a sling shot.
Stop beating your head against a stone wall. If you're doing something,
whatever it is, and it's not giving you the results you want, STOP DOING IT!
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting
I'm done writing this IM crap and expecting hundreds of views and opt ins.
Those days are over for me as far as article directories go. I'm now going to
concentrate my efforts on niches that I know will produce results.
You can do the same or you can keep beating your head against that stone
Your head is going to give out long before the wall does.
** EDIT ** One last thing. My older EZA articles are doing well, probably
because they are established. But all my new ones (the last 2 years) are
all doing horribly. Google gives ZERO weight to new EZA content. Only
your old stuff is going to do anything UNLESS, as I said, it's in an area
that doesn't have a lot of competition.
