    So, IM isn't for the long run most time. For example Google can decide to penalize your website at any time for any reason they want.

    Imagine you made about $50k already. In what would you invest it?
    Would you simply build just more websites and invest the money in advertising?
    Or would you build up something like a restaurant or a bar?

    Whats would you do?

    I'd spend a portion of it to build more websites, and invest the remaining portion to either a rental property or buy stocks with dividends.

    I'd invest in building more websites. Even tho a brick and mortar business could be nice but probably would involve a whole more work then IM and also would probably take longer to see a profit after investing

    Invest in gear for music production, that's my real dream but I'm so limited right now in what I can do.

    I been saving a lot of my IM income because I have a 9-5 and will go full-time in IM once I have a year salary saved. In the mean time some of my IM income have been going to an authority website and once that gives me a passive income I will keep building. Yes, I believe IM is for the long run if you treat it like a job... good luck!

    The problem I have with websites is it takes such a long time to develop into an amazing product or advertise... I would invest in a small business and hire a manager and people to help.

    If you don't treat IM as a "business" then you will not make it in the long run regardless of the traffic source.

    Personally I would be using the money myself to pay off any debts, reinvest about 20% into the websites or open more, the rest to be savings and develop rental properties with for a good stable income.

    Local online real estate. To me, owning local online real estate is no different than owning real, real estate.

    It's cheaper, more accessible, and just as profitable.

    As far as G updates, they're not much different than real estate bubbles or fluctuations in the market. And in the end, whichever you do, as long as you know your shit you can bank hard.
