Hey everyone, I know my post count indicates Im new here but in actual fact Ive been around for many months just never signed up.

So this is me.

Im in the canadian military, I should've been in Afghanistan for 6 months right now but do to needing ass surgery I was taken off tour, I got my surgery Sept 20 and should be off til mid to late Nov.

This is my injury


***Graphic***(You get the privilege of seeing my ass (Thanks Bill))

At the best of times it is uncomfortable, I havent really sit down in about 14 months.

My issue is I cant focus enough to get everything done. I have a small vaccuum attatched to the wound now that sucks all the blood out, this vac is running 24 hours a day, 4 of every 5 minutes, Im on morphine and percocets 100% of the time.

I know there are people on here with situations worse then mine.

Im in no way looking for a hand out, just looking for direction, my injuries, this one and the dozen or so other Ive had in the last few years were all caused because of military service, Im done with this life and want to experience the freedom that comes with the online lifestyle.

So again, just looking for some words of encouragement, direction etc, not looking for methods or golden eggs of any sort.

If anyone gets this far and decides not to post I still appreciate you taking the time to read.

Thanks Warriors.

Dylan

    Those are very graphic images, you might want to put up a warning.

    Hope you get better.

    Dude that was a bit more then I wanted to see. Anyhow that is one of the main reason why I didn't go in to the military as I was going to. Besides the fact I herd a few other stories and seen what was coming. There for I am actually glad I did not.

    The comfort level will play a huge role on anything to do with im. Since you will be basically sitting in front of a computer screen just about every day. So in your case of barely being able to sit this may be a big issue.

    On the other hand you have something to drive you. You wont to leave the military you want to start living for you and not someone else. There for it should make it that much easier for you to set your goals and start pounding away.

    Since you do have the disadvantage of actually sitting down. Which will take away from the time you have to do proper research. I think I would start out by having some one do all the computer work for me. If you have some one close to you it will make it easy for them to understand on what you want to do. Also if you have a good understanding of what your niche is going to be about. You could ask them to look at a few things for you while you do the hard work the old style way. Get out that notebook and a pen and start writing a few post. Then have them imput them for you.

    If you know how to do the research that needs to be done to find your keywords and such you could show them how to do this. Tell them for their help you will be also building them their online business at the same time. This way you both benefit entirely while you are down on injuries.

    I wish you the best of luck hope this helps some and hope you get better soon. Good luck to you and your new found life.

    I have moved my computer and hooked it to my tv through HDMI, I now lay on my bed 24 hours a day and work.

    Ive been working online for sometime, actually in my opinion this would be a pass time as im not making any half decent money, I have been running niche sites for some time but have yet to see any sort of return on them, just getting them ranked has been difficult up until now.

    Was making roughly .15 a day with adsense which is nothing, a start at most.

    My inspiration is more my father and girlfriend, my father is very ill, on disability, he has fybromyalgia (spelling) Hep C and glaucoma. About to lose his house due to not being able to work etc etc.

    Girlfriend is in her 4th year of university, has amassed 60000 in debt which we will never be able to pay off while paying regular living fees in 30 years.

    Sorry to complain, I havent seen the sun in over a week this forum is my only humna contact.

    Sorry.

    You are not complaining bro its flustrating to everyone when these curvballs are thrown at them at 130 mph.

    My guess would be that the sites didn't rank well because the keywords where too broad. I would focus on your niche sites by narrowing down the keywords on them. You would be suprised how fast it will rank with a simple change as to the keywords you are targeting.

    Forinstance lets just say you are in the dog training niche and yes you want to target that keyword but what if instead you where to target puppy potty training. The competition is much lower. Which will make it that much easier for you to get top rankings for.

    If you would like show me some of your niche sites. I will have a look over them and give you some pointers on how to make them better and rank better. I could also do a quick keyword search for you and send you the info on the keywords I would target for those given niches.

    I am sure I speak for all the warriors here. We will all be glad to give you little pieces of advice and help you start seeing some profits. Which is the whole reason why this forum was built in the first place. For marketers to come and get help if they needed it.

    It would be fantastic if you could take a few mins and sneak a peek at a site or so.

    I tried pming you but my post count wont allow it, was wanting to add you to Yahoo or msn messenger for a quick chat, if thats possible please pm me your user ids.

    This vac is absolutely killing me though, it is sucking 4 of every 5 minutes, that one minute is a god send as the pain is gone, but when it turns back on.... Im a man, a military man at that but I almost cry everytime, I dont wish this injury on anyone.

    hey Hoot...

    Sorry to hear about all the bad luck. But it sounds like you are a fighter. I hope you get better real soon.

    I was having the same problems as you with my first site. After about 4 months i changed the keywords and I changed the layout of my site. That helped a lot. I finally got to page 1 on Google and Yahoo and Bing. Work on your Meta Tags, Title, and Meta description.

    Good luck to you....

    Hey Dylan...

    You'll get through all this. I was in the military, but never wounded
    and also not a combat soldier.

    If you don't mind the suggestion, make sure you break clear of the
    pain meds as soon as you can. You know what I mean. Do the best
    you can, man.

    I'd also recommend you take the time to learn about chigung breathing
    and exercises and start doing it. You can research it online and learn.
    If you're not familiar with it, then it's worth looking into and doing if
    you're open to it. It can and will help you with the pain, and it will
    make you healthier and stronger. I've been doing it for almost 35
    years. There are lots of different kinds of chigung. But learn how to
    breath properly and at least incorporate that.

    The best you can.


    Ken
