    Due to some personal issues, ive been out of IM for a few months. Its probably been around 4-6 months since ive frequented the forum. I was at the point were I was finally starting to see some success, I had an amazon site goin that was making me $100-$150 a month pretty much all summer and was starting to work on making other amazon sites with the same foot print. Well some huge issues hit home here and kept me from IM for a little while. When I came back, I realized that all of my sites had lost their rankings, and read that google had struck down EMDs and also did something to ruin our old backlinks? These sites are all well written articles, written by myself pushing the sales of amazon products (basicly Roos style with a few tweeks). Could someone give me a little input to get me back on the right track? Is it still about backlinking, or even more about onsite SEO/article quality now? If backlinking is still the key, are there any good sellers of backlinks out there that really do help our sites, and woulnt cause them to be drilled by Google eventually? I tried buying a few different packages before, and none really seemed to do much, until I did some backlinking on my own that seemed to help. Right now trying to hold the family together, and working 60 hours a week at the job, id rather pay someone to do the backlinking than do it myself...

    You can still use amazon to make good money. Read this thread, it should get you back in the game. It's perfect for your situation. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/530286-read-collection-methods-work.html

    It's about unique content. Unique content on your site and unique content on your backlinks.

    I guess the real question is then, is there anyone out there selling backlinks that are done with real content, not the spun crap? I realize it will be a little more pricey to do it that way, but time is definitely money and I know that at least one of my sites will bring me in $100+ a month during the summer months so I dont mind putting a little cash into it.

    Content has indeed grown in importantce.
    However it is the synergy between authority links and good content that makies the most enduring SERPS gains.

    Good content - unpromoted - only suceeds in the wekest of niches (as it always did)
    If you want to really get on, the you are going to need links.

    The good news is that few links are required. Rather than 10's of thousands think in terms of hundreds
    The bad news is, Google now likes all links to have authority, most to have their own content for context and for moderate or larger sites to link independantly to all viable internal URL's
    And add "social noise"

    Is this harder or easier than 6 months ago? Hmmm about the same.
    It's a little harder than 6 years ago for sure and offsite optimization wise certainly harder than 16 years ago. But then building your own website was a real issue back then never mind SEO.

    Same game - similar rules - subtle but definite change of emphasis

    I second the amazon suggestion. It seems to be the way to go for now.
