I've tried and failed to make IM money for many years. Shiny objects. A lack of focus. Poor work ethic (athough I've devoted many hours to it). The lack of focus to stick with things and make them work. (in the beginning, I'll be focused on 1 thing alone). They say your approach to life shines through in whatever you do; in that case, I've been lazy, sloppy, depressed and unfocused. I thought in my mind I'd have millions through IM long ago, driving cars, flipping mansions. My failures in IM have created deep self esteem and depression issues that have spread to other areas of my life. I'm nothing but a "failure". I haven't dated women, made friends, or been very socially active in a long time. I have to fix this, to be blunt. Success with IM should spread to other areas in my life too. Reality: I haven't made a dollar online in a long time. some of that is because I was focused on the wrong things and didn't apply the knowledge I learned correctly. Now I'm about to do that. Strategy: SEO: Acquire expired domains with good metrics and no spam Generate robust content to get it to rank Target low competition, weak keywords with decent amounts of traffic, by optimizing pages with 1K-3K words of content around that keyword Build web 2.0s to the inner pages Keep the pages as close to level 2 in the site architecture as possible (level 3 and below architecture pages have harder time ranking) Rank and monetize! Less domains are more. I'll try and have one mega-site instead of creating 4-5 mini sites with 5 pages each. The first project is arbitrage seo. I bought an old domain around a certain online service, like banner design or article writing services. I'm going to use arbitrage to charge a certain price to have the job done, then outsource it to quality freelancers for less. So, let's get started!
