    Just wanted to provide some quick advice.

    You read a lot on this forum regarding sticking to one thing, One Metod. I agree with that but when doing SEO the process takes some time to see results. While you are waiting for your page to rise to the number one spot, start something else.

    What I'm not saying is abandon your first project, I'm just saying start getting something else cooking. This will allow you to absorb any blows when you start making some money. Before you know it, you will have multiple streams of income.

    You will also find that the same pattern of success and strategies can be applied to different money making ideas.

    The reason I'm writing this post is because my site "Google Dancing" is f*ckin' up some of my money for this month, but just imagine if this was the only project I had going. I would have NO FREAKIN' Money.

    If you look at the two screen shots - in November I am making a sale almost every single day (Spot #1 is worth all the time and effort in the right niche). Then my site decides to put on a nice dress, some shoes and go dancing.....hence we have December where I made $.55 in the last 10 days, because my site is no where to be found.

    9 months ago, I would have been kicking the cat, but I learned. I now get money from CPA, Facebook, Clickbank, Adsense, CJ, etc...so I can afford to wait it out.

    My advice, once you get a method working, or on it's way to working, start learning something else....and keep learning, and keep learning.

    CE/T=$ (consistent effort over time = $uccess)

    True. It's never good to have all of your eggs in one basket; especially if that basket is SEO with all of the algorithm changes and other things that you have no control of.

    This makes me wonder cause i have pure seo cpa site which makes around same as you, now i'm little concerned that should i do something like try to integrade it with facebook and twitter to get social traffic. Would be a bummer if my only money making site would dance to trashcan :)

    If you have one site that is making money....you are honestly doing better then 75% of the people on this board. I would now set up a completely different site, based around a different offer in a different niche, even on a different server if you can afford it.

    Also stop doing any blackhat SEO work if you are already ranked. If you buy services make sure they are all manually done.

    My site will be back - it dances for like 3 or 4 weeks at a time, but if it never comes back I will be ok. That's where you want to be...you want to be able to say "f*ck it, I'm still ok".

    Conrats on your one site that is banking!!

    Diversification is the key to SOME stability with IM.

    Diversify your streams of income..

    and also... diversify your methods...for example 50% BH and 50% WH.

    50% paid traffic....50% SEO.

    Most of the niches I'm in require 80hrs/week for months to get into the top 10...
    Curious how you intend to diversify that time :rolleyes:

    My experience has been the total opposite of the OP... the more I diversified the less money I made overall...
    Then again, none of my sites ever "dance" and lose ranks though... they only increase.

    What I do instead is I add new domains in new keywords (usually similar niches where a sales pitch can generate some direct sales, but are less competitive) that are pitched directly back to the money site... :nana:
    I have about 10 niches now... some took <1 month, others I'm still toiling on after 6 months and slowly moving up (by toiling of course, I mean I devote 80-90% of my time to them for months on end)
    All of the sites bank...all the time.

    Hey Expertpeon - what you are doing is exactly what I was trying to say...maybe I didn't do a good job explaining.

    The fact that you have 10 niches, the fact that you say, "all of my sites bank all the time" is the point I was trying to make.

    You didn't say my "site" banks all the time. You saw something that was working and instead of watching TV, hanging out, or playing XBox you made another site, and another site. That's what I meant by diversification.

    Good to see people put in some hardcore work!!

    Diversity is key in everything especially in the SEO world. I believe the OP's statement also made light of being diverse in not only how you do your seo but rather that you can use different methods to also drive traffic via CPA/CB paid traffic methods and obviously working in different niches using various strategies.

    I agree, the more diversity in your backlinking strategy the less obvious the footprint; which is also why using one service for all of your niches is a bad idea.
