Currently I rely on a single authority site, primarily monetized with AdSense, to pay my bills. I have other income but not enough. Everyone has heard of horror stories about using SEO+Adsense and then getting f'd by Google. So I need to mix it up. The goal here is to have enough income where I am not stressing about money and where I can consider longer-term business projects that require bigger investments. I'm past 30 and married - I've got all the lazy days and reckless nights out of my system and want to do something with my life, ya know? I have a background in programming and a little list where I jot ideas when I get them. But for now I'm adding in some other IM stuff. Starting with... (1) SEO + CPA The goal here is to keep my SEO ability fresh and to set up passive income from promoting CPA offers. I'm starting with this one. I am making four websites of ~15 pages each to focus on a small cluster of 2-3 keywords each, all for the same product. I will be creating a blog network using expired domains (with backlink profiles) and fresh web 2.0's. I will be experimenting with using -no- software backlink tools and basically just doing enough backlinks to get everything indexed. So far: I've set up the four Wordpress accounts and assembled a swipe folder of stuff to rewrite and photos to use. (2) Ads + CPA The goal here is to get more practice with media buying and, obviously, to make some money. If I get fancy here, I might start building a list in a niche and set up auto responders. That's it, really. These should be able to get me to the point where I diversify my income and start more serious projects. Well, off with the journey then. I never got the point of these threads but now I know: journey writers are usually procrastinating.
