    First site I ever started after reading over this forum was a poker site. I knew I wouldn't rank well but it was more of a topic I enjoyed that I could put into practice the SEO I had learnt from here, 2 weeks later the US has Online Poker Shutdown. There goes that!

    Then I setup a site around a CB product that was one of a kind and chose some good buying long tail keywords that would be easy to rank for. I am on the first page after only 2 weeks and starting to see some good traffic and CTR to the product then BAM! The site has been suspended by their hosting provider.

    :rolleyes:

    Oh well back to the drawing board I guess! Anyone else have this shit happen often or has it just been a streak of bad luck combined with shitty choice of niches?

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    That is your main problem right there... choose something mainstream that you have an interest it, then do what you did for that CB product and rank it.

    Then find something that is similar to that and add to that site with another rankable KW and you'll get close to double th traffic.

    After you get that second KW phrase ranking, do it again and add to your site again... keep doing that and after a while, you'll end up with a site that gets decent targeted organic traffic and if you monetize it correctly you'll end up with cash in your pocket.
