Either way in the end what's the point of debating this topic or any other topics involving penalties or bannings when the only people who really know what's going on are google employees.
All this talk of adsense bannings has got me thinking about doing something that I should have done long ago and that is to diversify my income stream.
On average I read sometimes 8 to 10 hours a day on different methods of earning money, anything from bum marketing to adult friend finder affiliates and everything in between. I read entire threads or just one page article all to add to my knowledge of how to make money online.
But honestly all that reading don't mean jack, without experimenting or getting feedback from others who already did or who are trying it and that's why I come here but lately I see less talk about making money and more talk about things that don't matter.
I AM HERE TO MAKE MONEY. What are you here for?
Here's a idea that I've had for site that's new to me but probably old to others as it hs already been done.
This is for netflix affiliate's who get paid 16 for every free sign up. Basically my idea is to make a large authority site on tv shows of the 80s and 90s. I check a lot of old shows such as buffy the vampire slayer, knight rider, gummie bears,the secret to my identity etc all or most have green lights in any keyword tool and I can think of plenty of ways to monetize a site like this.
I was thinking of using amazon and netflix for a site like this. Amazon for posters,mugs,t-shirts ,dvds etc. I would have a stand alone squeeze page for netflix telling visitors all about how great netflix is and how they can join free.
In theory I figure anyone still searching for a 10 yr old tv show must love it enough to either spend money on merchandise or at least sign up for a free trial of netflix.
But there's a few holes in my idea, for one netflix has been having a little bit of trouble with there online selection of movies . I would hate to build a site focusing on using netflix only to have hem go out of business 3 yrs later.
Second I've always relied on longtail traffic with high cpc but with this Idea I think I would need a ton of traffic to make any kind of money. Which would lead me down the path of trying to backlink for higher ranking which could possibly lead to a unnatural links penalty.
I need help people, I know how to make money with adsense but I no longer want to rely on adsense alone nor should you.
I would like us to focus on making money methods not complaining about how we got banned or deindexed. If you get hit with a penalty learn from it and move on.
