I've been at this for almost a year now and yet to make any real money. A few days ago I decided to try something new. I found a random product on CB and wrote an article for it, threw my affiliate link in it and put it on a article site. I didn't think about it again until today when I log into my CB account and notice 15 clicks on the link! I looked into it more and found out that my article is showing up in the first few spots on google for some long keywords. Still no money yet but I think I finally get it now. I found a few more keywords that it's not ranking so well for. I hope scrapebox will take care of those for me.
