    Hi guys,
    I have been in this forum for a while and learning a lot. I am a full time Master's student and have been in IM for a while, but mostly promoting Clickbank products, and Adsense.
    My clickbank review site has died off as the products I promoted are way saturated. Now I'm trying to make an Adsense authority site.
    The site is by no means MFA, it has attractive design and I have so far almost 30 articles and the site has been up for 1 month. I get around 200 visitors a day, according to Statpress, however my Adsense earnings is just around $1. I think the position of my adsense blocks are pretty much optimised already.

    I have been adding 1 article per day, thinking that the traffic will rise along side with the articles added, but the traffic has not been stable and does not look like it is on the rise.
    I know that if I want to make an authority site and if this is a long term project, I have to keep adding unique content frequently. But seeing the results everyday has demotivated me quite a bit. How do you keep your motivation level to continue a long term project?:confused:

    Coffee, adderall, multivitan vitamin + b,c and mediatation lol


    Your submitting one article a week? This must be bumped up quite a bit.

    Ok I reread.. one per day. Keep it up and start adding some backlinks to your articles.
    and yes, everyone here has had unmotivated days, weeks, months and years. You gotta know you can do it. Have a vision.

    treat it like a game. your sites are your generals, your articles and backlinks are soldiers. you're trying to fight and dominate other generals in their niches on the battlefield of google.

    I simply think of the terror. The horrifying day when I wake up and my US dollars are worth nothing on the exchange rate.

    When I see poor people in the city begging on the street I am triple motivated by their plight. You want to see a fat man like me work, you will see me work to maintain the inner tube that hangs off my hidden 6 packs abs!

    I pinch the luxurious fabric of my underwear between my calloused fingertips and I tell myself if I want more feel good stuff like these briefs I am wearing I will work hard, WORK HARD! Mush! Plow! Slave! You must work!

    Today my hotel raised it's room prices by 2 and a half dollars. I am freaking motivated man, I am motivated by this new threat of homelessness!

    I know what has to be done to maintain my lifestyle:

    I find that you need to focus on something important that will happen if you're successful. Often, money isn't even enough to motivate me. I'm just like, "Fuckkk, I'm too lazy, screw the money." But then I remember that I do this because my girlfriend is miserable living with her unkind guardians and that I promised to get the money to move out with her.

    This is hilarious. And it's great because shit like that is actually entertaining and works. Like when I'm driving. Everyone is the enemy. Lmao.
