My problem now is i have lost my job. The number one reason why i was looking for an alternative income on the internet has finally cut up with me. I have always feared losing my job and have committed so much to my online business working four hours every day for three years straight and have only grown grey hair from pressure.
Just last two months i started earning about $23 dollar monthly after been able to rank for two of my keywords on Google. Some other ones where on the 2nd, 3rd page and where looking up. I tried affiliate marketing and discovered that to be successful i need opt in page which means getting aweber or getresponse but can't afford that for now and also can't afford paid traffic due to lack of resources. So i focused on ad sense and created a couple of site that could have generated me over $2, 000 monthly but i can't rank high even when the keywords are relatively easy according to Traffic Travis and Google keyword tool.
Paypal is another major obstacle spoiling everything that i can have done when i attempted offering services on Fiverr and others, i discovered i need to have paypal and that doesn't work from Nigeria.
The recent Google update took away my $23 to $0:confused:. My site got lost in the SERP while that of my competitors remained.
The link building strategy i use are, i write an article of 500 words and get them on my blog first and then syndicate to article directories using AMR, i submit the same article on my private article network, FTS, web 2.0 and some press releases. I also do blog commenting manually because i can't use Scrapebox due to proxy issue and can't afford that, i participate in forums using anchor text in my sig.
Pls is there something that i am doing wrong.
I don't have a job now,:confused: my fund on my debit card can only serve my hosting and domain renewal needs till Jan 2012.
I just don't know where to begin from........... I wish i had spent my entire time building business in the real world, i know by now i would not be worried over my state.
I will give out my site at the end of this year and burn my compute as well. Enough is enough!
Wish you all success even when it can't come to me.
