    Yes. Sadly, but has some good things on it. Forces me to finally consolidate all that EMD crap.

    for english speaking sites, thats true.
    for .de. its approx 3 years backwards.
    I miss those golden years.... 1000 gsa links and a EMD = #1 and 3digits clickbank products per month income :(

    Had a 2h client sessions last week. he also talked about the "golden times of 2011". And he sells medical tapes - I was and still am in heavy affiliate stuff..
    We both agreed that it's not "harder". just the low to medium competiton got MORE.
    you know, there wont be a 2nd facebook, google, huffi or menshealth coming for .de in the next 5 years.
    but there are and will be a ton of medicore competitors spamming everything with poor written content, a few footer links and rank for 10exact searches a month

    so, honestly? it's EASIER being #2 or #3 now for authority in a a FEW sub niche.
    than competing for dozens of niches.

    that's why I am turning all those "failures" into PBNs now. put a article on them, just link with URL to my main sites. done.
    even saves me a sum of hosting costs. and I dont have to worry about all those wordPRESS updates, backups and crap.

    only problem: the site posted is a simple general review site.
    that's kind of hard to "revive", cause those low volume keywords compete with 777 other sites now..

    in the past I only created like "casio 123 watch review" articles.

    that's why I will "clean it up". and use it's old authority to create articles like "best ab trainer 2017" - you know what I mean.
    research them volume, competition and link them with PBN posts if ROI seems possible.

    It's a ton of work :(
    and when It get's energy draining, I just create some YT videos, pop them up, and enjoy #1 and a bit more earnings per month.

    eg, that is in "health & diet nich":

    If anyone tells that "content is king" and "write good content and your site will rank" warriorforum BS, I will crucify him and skull fuck him. that might have worked 2011 in de. but it's long gone then.
