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.
