    Hey all,

    Well been a couple of years but I'm back. After going to the first UnGagged get together I had my shit hacked and lost my google adcents account. Years of work shot to shit. But I'm ready to get back in the game, hope to learn as much this time as I did last time and get back to making two grand a month or more.

    Good to be back.

    Oh hell no. Everyone at UnGagged rocked. It was just a coincidence that they correlated to one another. It's just that I was making enough online money to be able to afford to do that trip and then all my shit got jacked up, which was very disheartening. But I'm back again, and looking to bust it up even better than I used to.

    Hey OP, just briefly how did you adsense get hacked and did you resolve it? That's a bit worrying. Is it something as simple as having a very good password to prevent it?

    And good luck!

    i doubt he went to ungagged with his passwords written on his back so prob just
    co-incidence, and accounts can be replaced , but it does suck the life out of you
    when something u spent a few yrs on bites the dust, happened to me b4 i came here
    2007. almost quit.

    to irishengteacher

    It was a couple of my sites that got hacked. Google gave me a warning about them putting out malicious software. Turns out it was an SQL injection. I went in got it cleaned up, and they let me continue on, but whatever the vulnerability was I hadn't corrected it and within a couple of days I was hacked again. After that Google killed my Adsence account and blacklisted all of my sites. Google was about 3/4 of my income. It was an issue of me not really knowing how to lock down the server I was using than anything, but with Google there is no appeals process. Once they cut you, you're cut or at least all your sites are. One thing I need to figure out is how to get another Adsence account. But after such a huge crash, about 5 years of work blown up, I kind of let everything slip away. But I still enjoyed the money I made, and want to rebuild that again. Now that I'm retiring from the military I have the drive to learn something new again, so hear I am. Did it once, so all the really hard lessons have been learned. Mainly that this is not a get rich quick game, and that it won't be an overnight success, but I'll get there again.

    thats all that matters , time determination , times like these im always remind of this quote

    “Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place.
    And I don’t care how tough you are. It will beat you to your knees and keep you permanently there if you let it”
    “You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can
    get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done”
    “Now if you know what you are worth, go out and get what you are worth, but you gotta be willing to take the hits
    and not pointing fingers, saying you ain’t where you want to be because of him or her or anybody. Cowards do that,
    and that ain’t you. You’re better than that”
