I've been at this for almost a year. At the moment I have 3 different websites in 3 different niches that I work on every day - whether it be adding new content, building backlinks..whatever. Niche 1 gets about 35,000 unique visitors/month. The other 2 get maybe 1500 between the two of them. My primary method Monetization method has been Adsense. I've yet to hit $5 in a single day. The most visited site isn't really a profitable 'niche' (celebrity, entertainment type site), but the traffic is there. The other two are hit or miss on how profitable the keywords are. Despite my best efforts to build backlinks, my rankings are dismal. Organic traffic is maybe 600/day. Any suggestions, advice...motivational quotes if you will - would be much appreciated. Feeling a bit down & out at the moment.
