Hey guys, I am noob and I have been reading this forum trying to learn as much as I can. Do you think my website is worth spending the time and money to optimize it using balckhat techniques such as building backlinks either with other posts or with comments? -I have a 5 months old website that is kind of like 9gag but it is in spanish since I am from Mexico. -I also have a Facebook page of my website with 6000 fans all real. -I have an average of 1,600 unique visitors a day but I am only making like 40 cents a day with AdSense -25 categories (300 words on each page) -25,000 posts (20 words max). User creates the content, not me. -Due to the nature of my website, my posts are not long at all. They only have a title and a picture. -I have no more than 15 natural backlinks. -Started as school project and I enjoy doing it My question is: Do you think this is something to pursue for long time? I mean, 1500 visitors and only making 40 cents? I am starting to change my mind towards a another subject with longer posts. If you have any advise, I would appreciate it.
