    Hi,

    Very bad times for me! I just completely lost my bread and butter in EMDs and now in recent update. I am trying to build new websites but you know it will take time to get traffic. Please suggest me some methods which can generate some sure money for me until i get my business going again. Please only online methods, no McDonald, Pizza huts.....

    Thanks

    Sell the EMD's and use the money to reboot your main earner?

    Man, EMDs won't work anymore.

    If you wanna bank from pages, you only have 1 way. Authority.
    And when I mean auth, i dont mean 20k words so you can rank; I mean USER EXPERIENCE and quality work, good marketing strategies and email extraction.

    If you have made some money and you have some knowledge, move on with PPC, it'll make you some nice cash if you know what you are doing.

    Authority should have been the main long-term goal anyway.

    Some EMD domains are still ranking in Bing and yahoo, so don't want to throw them cheap but they are not giving me anything anyhow.

    I wouldn't say EMDs don't work at all.. I still have a couple of sites going strong.

    But yeah, like Reyone said above, if you want to make real money from your site, make it an authority website that the users in your niche look up to.
    Thin sites with little to no content and crappy structure will more than likely be penalized eventually and you'll lose your income.

    As to your question about methods,
    There are quite a few you can try. Take a look at this thread and you'll find a lot of them.
    Just make sure you don't put all your eggs in one basket this time and diversify your income sources enough so that if one of them goes down, you don't lose your bread and butter :)

    Freelancing is the only option. You can try Fiverr. If you have any special skill then you can sell it there. Once you make good cash from Fiverr reinvest in building more sites but this time try to diversify. You can even make quick EMDs now and sell them off and reinvest that money into PPC.

    EMD wasn't slapped - it was partially levelled.
    Get some onsite authority with content, and offisite with good inbound links. Context sensitire in terms of content and site placement, content diverse, anchor text diverse and platform diverse - built over time.

    Links will still beat onsite content. It's not as "link centric" as it was say 2 years ago, but good links still beats all for Google.

    Scritty, dont you think the recent update involved something to do with TLD specific backlinks? Because one of my .co.uk domains have moved down in position on google.co.uk but is number 1 on google.com.

    Should, some kind of data entry jobs like microworker would work? I know they are low level jobs.

    Even Fiver is so saturated right now that it will be difficult to get the fortune.

    While this is true, they cost less time and money and are easier to rank. I mostly use thin crappy sites these days and only about 5 big sites, as when a thin crappy site gets hit, I have many spare in the background ready to be pushed. Sometimes I feel bad when one of my good crappy sites get hit, but not as bad as I did when I got a high earning forex site which took me years to do got hit.

    I have one website running (destroyed in Google) that can benefit from Linkedin. Suggest me some tips and techniques which can get some buying customers.

    Sorry to hear that Brother ! The same has happened to me so I can fully understand what you are feeling like.
    Move on now and try to get things working again. Also don't fully rely on SEO, that's the biggest lesson I have learnt.
