Im kinda fed up with building link after link,waiting,writing new unique content,doing everything manually and still struggling to rank. The site I am working on is jumping all over the place,from 30 to 60 to 71 then 39 then 32 then 24 then 29 again. I am a manic obsessive so I cant give up once i start something but i feel like giving up sometimes,its so hard to rank. Do you ever feel like this?

    Generally speaking, I've thought about giving up a lot of times... but then I reflect on how much time and effort I've put into my online businesses and say "No way, I'm in it to the end!"

    However, you have to make a distinction between "giving up" and an "exit strategy".

    The first site I ever created was an e-commerce site and it made tens of thousands of dollars. After scaling it up I eventually started getting overwhelmed with all the work needed to run it. I took it offline for several months and started it up again; however, the sales from it were never the same.

    In the end, I converted it into an affiliate site and sold it along with several online assets of mine.

    When I look back on it, I didn't give up - I just improvised, adapted, and overcame - and still made bank in the process

    I'll leave you with this last saying that I have hanging on my wall...

    "Nothing in the world can take the place of perseverance.
    Talent will not; nothing is more common that unsuccessful people with talent.
    Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
    Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
    Perseverance and determination alone are omnipotent.

    The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race"

    These algos come and go and things will settle again- the hard part is being patient when we are losing money, so keep building so the impact will be lessened each time and as always Diversify EVERYTHING including income streams.

    We all feel like giving up sometimes, the key is to keep motivated and no matter what DECIDE that No matter what you WILL NOT give up! You can change course, strategies but do not give up!

    Hang in there buddy!

    sometimes. definitely manic obsessive also, but in the right context, that type of personality can be your best friend.

    i've built around 15 MNS in the past 4 weeks or so. around 5-6 of those are already ranking on the first page, seeing clicks every now and then. trying to get them higher now.

    don't get discouraged and obsessed over a site. as long as you do your research right (THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP), then just add your articles, do your backlinking, and move on right away to the next site.

    i never did, i have a super obsessive personality also, and in the right context, if all that energy is focused towards positivity, it can be your best friend.

    anyway, i built 15 MNS in the past 4 weeks, when i got really into IM. half those sites are ranking on the 1st page now, super fast, but i think i have a formula down pat. my revenues and # of clicks aren't that high though, so my goal is to rank them higher on the 1st page.

    the key is to not get discouraged. build your site, build your backlinks, and move on immediately to the next site. it takes weeks/months for google to rank your site and improve SERP to the 1st page.

    you refreshing and searching for your term and clicking on SERP isn't going to speed the process, you can spend that time doing research on warriorforum for new projects, or build new MNS.

    i suggest you move on to the next MNS immediately, build that, and move on immediately to the next. it's also a numbers game, not every MNS you build will be a star, but if you build 10. a few are guaranteed to make you $.

    most important thing - do your research on keywords.

    Yes everyday, I feel i would be lying if i said i did not but it is hard. The thing you have to learn like i did is that success is only as good as the amount of effort you put into it. Look at the success stories on the forum and see what they have done and there is no reason why you cant do it also

    Best of luck to you. If there is anything i can do to help you along your journey please feel free to message me and i will gladly help

    I think everyone feels like giving up at some time or another-

    Just know that things do jump around, especially after updates and that's normal, things will settle down. Just keep building and working.

    DO NOT GIVE UP!!! Decide that you will not give up, keep on going. And most importantly Diversify everything, backlinks, income streams...everything.

    It is normal to want to give up sometimes when you just can't see the results. But take it easy, do things by the book and you will see an improvement eventually.
