How many backlinks of well targeted PR 1-5 sites should it take to get consistent traffic? What kind of traffic (unique visitors) amount should be expected, in general, from that backlink number? How long does it take you on a blog to make $1/day from Adsense? It has only been 4 weeks, but I am really frustrated. I have 125 inlinks according to Yahoo. 125 index pages from Google. MSN has 30 indexed. Getting 5 uniques/day from Google/Yahoo/MSN total organic daily. They are spending an average of 1.5 min. on the site with ave. 2.5 pg views. Yet no adsense $$$. StumbleUpon and Digg have brought 30 uniques each the last couple of days, but have a 95% bounce rate. No Adsense Clicks. I have submitted my site to 50 General Directories. About to begin industry related directories next week. Using the ******** for blogs with relevant keywords for Disqus and others. Submitted and accepted 10 articles in Ezine. Getting 2 uniques/day from that with an 90% bounce rate and less than 5 sec. on the site average. No Adsense Clicks. I am not even going to get into the whole online press release area. Not worth it yet. BTW, I have 50 posts worth of content on the site. I was thinking of adding 100 more, but can't see putting in the time if I don't get some $$ from the blog. Sorry for the vent. Any suggestions? And yes...I will use AC to save up cash for my shrink next time!
