    Everything I am saying is coming straight from the heart. Theres no ego involved, none of that.

    I failed so many times before I succeeded. And when I succeeded it felt so good. I felt like I was on top of the world making like $200/300 a day for a couple of months. I was doing SEO for a couple of nice keywords, ranking #1 and #4 for 2 keywords.

    On March 26th (my birthday) everything changed. Its been a little more than a month now since my money site went down the drain due to a update. SEO is my strength and that is all I know. Now that my main money site is down the drain, I have no working backups. I had a site making $20/30 a day but it got hit by Panda as well.

    If someone wants to help me regain the motivation, and maybe give me some tips, I would be very grateful and for sure repay the favor. I saved the money that I earned from SEO with the mindset that it will be my investing money.

    If you guys have any tips/ideas/comments for me it would be great. I am feeling really down right now. :( When I was making money I felt so good. I was healthy and happy, now that my sites dropped I feel like I wake up depressed and sad that I did not make any money yesterday. I know I am not the only one..

    Dear Patel....I can tell one thing only.If you made once you can make it happen again and again.If can not find a way to get your site back up again just start over with a new project and MAKE IT HAPPEN.

    All the best to you.

    MAKING MONEY
    Location:
    On My Grind
    I too got hit with Panda and was very near my $100 / day goal. I had some days over $100, but never an average. I know what you mean...when I would get home from work I would park and fly in the house to check my accounts. I was finally proving to my fiance' that this internet marketing is real. In my head I was close to quitting my day job and living my dreams. I would check my Peer fly account and see $10.00, Flux Ads, $20, Commision junction $40 or $50, it was crazy. Everything was starting to pay off. THEN WHAM!! Panda hit and I got smashed. I was following the 80/20 rule. 20% of my sites were making 80% of my money and that's the 20% that got hit.

    HERE IS THE KEY TO MOTIVATION
    When a man gets rich, it's not the money that changes him, it's the journey to get there. He has now learned what it takes and can get there in half the time, and more importantly he KNOWS he can get there. That's really what I did.

    MY NEXT STEPS
    Everything whitehat I kept working on although those sites weren't making a lot of money, they were unaffected by Panda and still unaffected by Penguin. I went to flippa and used what I know and the money I saved to by a really good site for under $200 so I had something that was generating some income ($5-$10 only) immediately.

    Last step is work my ass off! It took me almost 8 months to get to $10 per day, I'm close to $30 in just the two months I got hit. I will be back to $100 before the summer....and a smart $100.

    In the end mimic how things work organically and you should be fine in the long run.

    Good Luck
    -Capp

    Patel,

    It's time for you to recreate the wheel but this time you already have a good idea of how to do it. You have alot of technical knowledge based on your previous attempts and successes - now you just to spread out and experiment until you find the right formula. Create several sites and work your knowledge on them - re-test everything from keyword density on up - work backlinks and determine which are best, how many, how fast - you know the drill.

    Of course, keep reading BHW for the insight of others and apply what they learned and just keep testing.

    You are 5 steps ahead of the game from many others (including me) - you have already made $200-$300 a day sustained for that 2 months. Now you just have to do it again. And if the last time you did it purely with Adsense, now is the time to spread out - try some CPA and as you do hit some success and if find some success there, try and find a way to use Adwords to take away the organic search dependence on that one.

    Good luck Brother - See ya on the climb to the top... I'm still on the trek too.
