All my sites HIT! All gone getting pretty tired of this up and down with the "G"

So now what? back to square one! This has got to be the hardest year to get started in Internet Marketing with all these changes.

So now im left to wonder and think what I should do to replace the income?

Any suggestions

Offline marketing? hate dealing with business owners and their random phone calls been there didnt like it.

Affiliate Marketing , SEO is really starting to not bemy cup of tea.

    You should adapt. Since your business is based on rankings, you have no alternative but to figure out what Google wants and then give it to them. Not what they want NOW really. But what they will ask for in the future.

    And that's authority.

    My advice is not to give up. You wrote you feel like you're back to square one. I know what's that like; been there several times myself. Just adapt and start over:

    Do extensive market research, find a niche that's worth your time and effort and focus on one website around that niche rather than # websites. Get the domain you like (not the one you feel you HAVE to register) and post quality content with consistency. Build quality links only, diversify your link building profile and wait for several months for your site to climb up the rankings. Build a new website when your first one is solid and it doesn't take much of your time to keep up to date.

    It takes longer that way but you definitely have less to worry about.

    On the other hand, as suggested by fellow Warriors, you can change your business model entirely. Try PPC or offline marketing. You and you alone can really tell what's best for you.

      I think this advice is outstanding and whoever has been hit and is reading this should internalize it because it is excellent and exceedingly above anything else that is being thrown about on this sub-forum today.

      George,

      Thanks for your input, Honestly what you mentioned is what I started to think about after I saw my sites hit. Need to focus on one authority site.

      Overall im pretty tired of this back and forth thing with google.

    The nice thing about IM is that it's easy to pivot once your strategy tanks. It's much harder to do that in the bricks and mortar world.
