    Hey all.

    Just a quick intro to my thread - I have posted in this section as I see most relevant and I will be reffering to 6 sites I bought on here from sterdy. I am not here to give a review to what sterdy sold me as i rate him a1 as a seller and service provider. It was my choice to buy theses and I was 100% happy to go through with the purchase. What I am after here is some advice to get me earning some money back.


    Right, to get things started I bought 3 micro-niche sites, and 3 amazon sites.

    My micro niche sites are earning me nothing, and I mean nothing.

    Site 1 is frustrating because it is on google page 1, at number 2 for its keywords. It will not get to number 1 as that is taken up by the official thing the micro site is about. the problem here is no-one clicks on my site, and I litterally mean no-one. 1 or 2 a day maybe. Can I do anything to help this.

    Sites 2 and 3 I have worked on seo. What I have done is bookmark submissions, bought some pretty good around 100 backlinks from here. I have used fiverr for top 10 article submissions, profile links and a couple of cheeky 1000+ backlink blasts. I now beleive fiverr is full of rubbish as one of my sites is sandboxed, the other is stuck on page 3. Now I dont have the most time in the world for seo, due to lack of time my seo has been very steady even my fiverr purchases were not rushed through. As these are low competitive words I kind thought the seo I have done even though a little weak in quality in some areas would at least have got me to page 2 if not 1.

    Amazon sites:

    Bought some links, not really bothered much with these yet. However one of them has become a pr2 site which surprised me as I have not really done anything with it. Now is there another way I can earn on the pr2 site even though it has low traffiic.

    I hope from what I have written you knid of get my points and really any advice would be fantastic. If any one whats to know every thing I have done seo wise I could certainly add my fiverr purchases, blackhat purchases etc to the thread just to show that I have certainly tried. Please, please give advice on how to squeeze a dollar from all this.

    Note: people often ask for site url's but I cant help notice and wonder why people dont give this out. Is it silly to tell people your micro-niche websites

    Wait at least 1 month and see the visitors coming in.. a brand new website ranking depends on most countries searches

    These sites have been up for 2 months now.

    Out of interest, when I check my analytics, site 2 comes up as having been found organicly with the keywords. Yet when I type in the keywords it doesnt come up. Are different results shown in say the uk and the us. If so is there I way I can search google as if from the us, a proxy or somthing

    You can search the usa google if you switch to google.com at the bottom of google.

    Something so simple that I only just noticed the other day and thought how have I never noticed that before.

    They are the exact keyword searches.

    i.e my number 1 site is capitolfederalsavings.org and the exact keywords are capitol federal savings

    (dont mind disclosing this site as its number 2 yet poo)

    Google sees your IP and redirects you to the corresponding local google.
    Use this instead:

    google .com/ncr= google.com
    google .co.uk/ncr= google.co.uk

    The theme is simliar to my old micro niche site. I would add more articles to site (target more keywords) and spin those to article directories.

    capitol federal savings, as you see comes number 2, but nobody visits the blog. Is this simply because capfed comes number 1. Is there a you can suggest to get them to click on mine. I cant see it ever going above capfed and number 2 is fine by me

    I suggest to add more articles.. you have only 1 article on it! Keep in mind that organic traffic doesn't like it, 1 article seems to be not a good site for them
