Has someone written a speculative post about the future of niche-blog link building for marketers. I have some automation tools like GSA SER and Captcha Sniper but, the big shots say they are dead. If they are dead what is a budget blog like mine to do. So far my blog has produced less then $200 in Adsense income. It has also sold a few Amazon books. As blogs go, it is a dead beat. What do you think the future looks like for new niche bloggers. I'm also in a terrible niche. Addiction. I chase long tail keywords because the big boys like the Mayo clinic and all the .gov sites dominate. I blog because I want to make money. I write about addiction because I know about it an Google pays top dollar for adwords clicks. What do you folks think my link-building efforts should look like?
