this wonderful forum. It was simply because I enjoyed the X-games
and did not give the name a second thought.
Now there are so many Xfactor threads that come up and so many
people are wondering what and why my information is helping people.
Well, hopefully this can help:
Here is a personal update that many can learn from in terms of growth
and not thinking short-term:
(PLEASE READ CAREFULLY)
... As I cannot make it here to answer questions all of the time.
For starters, I never speculate anything that Google may or may not
Such threads are (and always have been) a draining and mentally
defeating growth amongst marketing forums.
Second, I have a Google rep that contacts me bi-yearly. I expect my
next conversation in July.
In January, my rep asked about any input I wanted to make, as well
as if I needed any tips on monetization.
This is probably the most key element here, because the difference
between someone that churns out hundreds of 1-page websites in
record time and me is:
1) I have nearly 13,000 pages of unique content, spread over 100+
websites, with many pages that have been growing since 2008.
2) 2,000 pages of that is on 1 health website.
3) All micro niche sites are nearing 100 pages of content (slowly
added over the course of 6 months to 1 year - other domains older).
4) They all started at 1-5 pages.
Note: I work with micro niches, not micro sites. Yes,
every site needs to start out small, but if I had a site making $5.00 per
day, why would I not want to add dozens or hundreds of long-tail keyword
focused articles to:
a) get more earnings and,
b) contribute more information to the niche?
5) I love my award-converting template, but due to so many people
using it, I enjoy changing things around. I urge everyone to use their
own creativity - just using my layout as a guide. Do I make less
money? Yes, that's ok with me.
6) Having been a black hat spammer from late 2005 until 2007, I
have purposefully avoided any and all backlink promotions that would
appear not to contribute something to the search engines.
I know what short-term riches feels like, as I did it. But at the end of
2007 I made a very clear and bold commitment to only work long-term.
Hope this little update helps.
