I joined this forum about 8 months ago. At that time i was making a few sales here and there, but I was definitely not where i wanted to be. My biggest problem was that I was spending way too much time looking for that next BIg IM release that would give me the secret to making a full time income online. I would get ready to do some work, and 6 hours later I would still find myself just reading through products/ posts/ articles, getting no work done at all.
Thanks to this forum, and some extremely helpful warriors, I realized that I had to start taking more action. I felt I already knew enough about IM, to at least start scaling things up a little.
My next biggest hurdle(I felt) was SEO. I knew some basics, but thats about it. Every time I did a little research on Google, all I saw was competition. I thought there as no way for me to compete, so I just stuck with article marketing and occasionally PPC(not with Google). With that i was getting some traffic, some sales, but nothing great.
About a month ago or so I decided to create 4 sites, do some on site SEO, get some high PR backlinks,(still working on this) and try my luck getting on page 1 of Google. "The Holy Grail."
Within 4 days, one site was already on page 5, another on page 4, another on 6, and the last one page 8. One week later, I had 2 sites on Page 1(one in second position for long tail keyword 3700 exact match searches per month), one on page 2, and the other on page 4. I was amazed. This was something I Never thought i was able to do. I still can't believe the results.
So I guess what I am trying to say is stop, reading and browsing, and Take Action. You will never know what you are able to accomplish unless you try.
Thanks to all the Warriors who have helped me.
Never give up,
I apologize for posting a possible "deceptive" title. As i state later in this thread, I was I little excited to find 2 of my sites on page 1. Something I thought I would never accomplish.
