    Hey Fellow BHW Members,

    I hope someone can help me out and explain why my earnings dropped so much on one of my websites.

    Ok so a month or 2 ago I launched a website on the url tv.blogfreestuff.info. Added it in TheLinkJuicer, Social Bookmarked it, Set it up with onlywhire. So after a few weeks the UV's started to rise first from 30 to 50 then to hundred and at peak of traffic I had 200-300UV's a day and sometimes an exception thanks to current event domination.

    Now in the first month I earned 170$ however the month after that traffic went down, UV's plummeted from 200-300 to 100 and eventually down to 30-60 a day. Now the second month I made 50$ and this month haven't earned shit really.

    The only thing I can think of that caused it to crash was one of the following:

    - Didn't manually promote it on yt etc anymore (Well I did but I guess the wrong tv shows/movies) maybe the video sites just got too saturated.
    - The ******* campaigns tend to not convert and as the ******* gateway checks if it's completed the gateway wouldn't go away. I once had someone spending half an hour filling in all surveys and it just wouldn't convert.
    - Well this came to mind, It's the summer holidays maybe everyone is at the beach on vacation etc.

    Now I've switched it to use BlackHatCodeBreaker, However I think people seen it so much they will immediatly click away (As you can't change the design) or I just have the wrong campaigns in my gateway, I dunno. This month I made 4$ so far, I've launched a new TV Show/Movie website and I'm wondering what I might've done wrong on the old one.

    by the way the new one is tvonlineforfree [dot] net, So if you have any suggestions for that one what I did wrong I would like to hear it.

    Hope some of you can give some advice/comments and help me out. I know it's a lot of text but I don't see how I could cut it down.

    Thank you for your time and attention.

    Regards, Ruler0fall

    Mostly from social bookmarking and youtube I think but also quite a few hits from google.

    Well you need to get google analytics or something similar running so that you can see where your traffic was coming from. we cant help you much without knowing that.

    If most of your traffic was from youtube and bookmarking then its likely that your bookmarks and videos arent getting any views anymore. You need to get your site ranked in google by building backlinks, then you will have a steady stream of search traffic.

    Is there any backlink checking tool I can use ?

    Also lemme check the website one sec... I do get searched but I don't rank really high, Should I get backlinks to every single post because that can't be done much more then it is now.

    Also I'll check my awstats stats tomorrow, Going to bed now, G'Night.
