This is just a post to hopefully give a few of you the motivation to keep going. I have been into IM for about 3 years now and like a lot of you I have gone through many failures along the way. Now finally I have managed to create a source of steady income by ranking low competition keywords. I have 20 sites all ranking for keywords with low competition and get between 3000 - 4000 UV each. Each site generates around $50 each month, give or take. What I did: 1. First I used the market samurai free trial to find mind keywords. 2. Brought a deluxe hosting package from godaddy and EMD .info domains 3. I built all 20 sites using wordpress 4. I got my content form a few sources to test the water for each (I cannot mention them because I will get accused of promotion) 5. Added content to sites etc... submitted to Google and let sites sit for 2 weeks 6.After two weeks started a 3 tier link building campaign using mainly web 2.0s with good content for the first two tiers, then spam for the third tier. 2 weeks later most the site were ranking on the first page 4 weeks later all the sites were ranking on the first page I plan to maintain this for a couple more months then I will add another ten sites and so on.
