    Before the Penguin update, my earnings were increasing every month. It was tedious to build more sites, rank more sites, build more sites, rank more sites, but I had this good feeling inside me as my money went up, that I was changing my life and it would be possible to become a millionaire, have a nice house and a hot wife who I can cheat on multiple times on secret trips to Japan (because I can afford it). I felt I would never have to depend on my parents anymore, I would be more sociable and would easily be able to talk to chicks because I'm not constantly worried about xrumer or html or spintax going through my head. Whenever I manage to just not give a crap, I get chicks. So I don't think money in itself causes raw attraction in chicks, it's just the carefree, confident attitude and happiness that you get when you've made a success of yourself, you have security with your money and you don't worry about shit like how am I going to survive in this world. When these worries cross your mind, you become a serious, anxiety ridden person and everyone, not just chicks, can sense that. My real self is like a kid, I like Beavis and Butthead , girls think it's stupid at first but in the end I have made them love it, because of my Beavis impressions mainly. My real self is happy go lucky with lots of stuff I want to do and places to go and races of chicks to score with. But unfortunately I have been sitting at a computer for years working my ass off every day and the minute I was coming out of it and had the light at the end of the tunnel, Penguin punched me in the face and raped me then pissed on my face like R kelly.

    I am convinced money makes me happy because now that my earnings have been cut in half, I have this sick, bitter, red feeling inside me. Kind of the opposite of the feeling I have when my earnings increase.

    Of course I am taking big action against Faguin but the update is so random I fear it will be for nothing. The final part of that is getting alternative sources for links, but even links can harm a site now. And I don't want to waste my precious links putting in faggy anchor text like http://www.url.com or click here or see this great faggy article. And I have to "de-optimize" my pages? WTF? I wasn't even keyword stuffing in the first place. It's hard to write an article about a product which doesn't mention the product's name a few times. FFS. That's why we're seeing the most ridiculous rankings right now. And I vote to take fucking amazon, walmart, bestbuy out of the rankings because most of their results are irrelevant and useless to the query.

    Just venting because I'm a bit sad at the moment. :(

    Money doesn't make anyone happy. I think it's the achievement, success and the independence it enables someone to have. Earning your money brings a sense of satisfaction.

    Most of us here will have had to rely on our parents/friends at some point in our life. It sets us free to speak.

    Tbh, sitting at a computer is a waste of life especially in our young years. Try get a real job, it's not as bad as you think. Best time of my life when I was working behind a bar.

    My plan was to go to PPC after I make a decent amount with SEO. My long term plan was never SEO but I expected maybe 1 year of stable earnings. Penguin just came suddenly and threw a nuke on all search results.

    I don't use online for my main source of income but it does help me pay off the bills every month and without it I wouldn't be able to get by. I tried for a while to use the internet as my sole source of income, but it became too frustrating when things didn't work as planned. Trying to make thousands of dollars online every month is wishful thinking. I now just shoot for more realistic goals like 500 bucks a month and have a lot more success that way. Now I just need to figure out how to do it on auto-pilot

    Its sad but true. Money means more to most people then a sense of accomplishment.

    "Money doesn't bring happiness" is myth invented by rich people, just like "good content only in one day will'll rank you"

    I don't want money to have a sense of accomplishment, I just want it to buy a house, travel, food, stuff I need. However it would be nice knowing that I have taken on a battle and won in the face of great adversity from the cunts at google. Sort of how Samwise Gamgee was pretty damn happy after he and Frodo managed to throw the ring back into mount Doom. He went back home to Hobbiton and married a hot hobbit. I think if I succeeded at this, that's how I would feel. Pretty damn awesome about myself.

    But in terms of accomplishment I think writing a book or making a film or doing something like that is what I would see as accomplishment. Because even though I would have made cash and felt awesome about winning, in the end all I did was spam webpages. I wouldn't really call that something you could show to your grandkids, "Oh, look at my xrumer mod and my 21 inch e-penis back in 0-12 when Penguin nuked us all and killed millions, it was worse than hiroshima I tell you my child"

    Money is a drug. The strongest drug there is.

    Why? It makes life easier and more enjoyable.

    I'm a full blown addict but it's ok because, again like a drug, it's only a problem if you CAN'T get it hahaha.

    Money makes people happy because it allows them to do whatever they want. It will however not supply fulfillment in a sense of true love or something like that. It is however necessary for a carefree life.

    You sure about that? I rather enjoy just being able to drop whatever I'm doing whenever I want and go to dinner with my girl.
