You see lot's of stories here following newbies plans or old pro's secrets to using a tool etc. I'm betting there are a lot of people like me who fiddled with all kinds of sites over the past 10-15 years and hold a hodge-podge of domains that trickle in an okay supplemental income. Adsense recently dropped my best paying sites and I find myself having to either put more energy into my web-projects, or cut my losses and get out of it. Well... web-development is just too addictive! So I'm going to push on and: Keep at it steadily Get more link juice for my current site collection Cut costs Use auto-blogging to fill out some sparse and dead sites Improve monetization of sites. Work efficiently, use tools, don't get sucked into unprofitable learning, programming or projects. Let's break that down now: Keep at it steadily I've seen one thing remain consistent over the years. The more time I spend on my sites, the more traffic and income they produce. I have more free time in the fall and winter, so now is the time. When working I find it important to switch off talk radio in favor of music. Talk radio is ok for household chores, but need to shut-down verbal noise to get focused on web-land. Put my story out there so I am motivated by peers. I thought about doing this on one of my IM domains, but i know I'll get more valuable feedback here. Get more link juice for my current site collection This is the most basic overall activity I'm moving to. Past link building has been limited to some paid links, semi-automated directory submissions. (I've used digiXMAS submitter for the past few years with okay results) articles using iSnare and a few Press releases, image hosting and other basic white hat stuff. Cut costs I've had a handful of sites on a particular overpriced server simply because moving them seemed like a pain. I've begun that moving process and will save about $300/ yr on hosting. I've marked a bunch of pointless domains to allow expire. Use auto-blogging to fill out some sparse and dead sites I've taken a run at using the "Shezblog" method with wp-robot, twitterfeed and tweet attacks. Reviving some old dead sites with steady new content and traffic from twitter is one of the techniques I'm using. I have a couple hundred twitter accounts that have been slowly adding followers via TA using search terms related loosely to my 50 sites and some affiliate niches I want to take a shot at on some subdomains. I need to work on getting my tweet accounts looking more natural. Experimenting with SocialBacklinker Pro with/instead of twitterfeed, and need to take time to load more accounts into socialoomph. Improve monetization of sites. Going through my sites I found some with ads either buried or non-existant. I'm liking the wordpress plugin New Adman for easy ad placement. Work efficiently, use tools, don't get sucked into unprofitable learning, programming or projects. I need to include "posting on this thread" as a possible suction on my time. The danger of more talking than doing is real! I think I've bought my last money making scheme e-book for a while. I've recently bought these tools: The Best Spinner Tweet Attacks SocialBacklinker Pro ScrapeBox BookMarking Demon 5 Article Marketing Robot 10 private proxies And I'm scheduling xRumer type links through DripFeedBlasts I'll let that suffice as my intro and try to post the different things I try along with results. Most of these sites, I'm willing to try whatever shotgun approach comes along. Others I may be more conservative with. Overall I'm looking for a steady consistent "Hey we are alive and linked to..." approach that will bring traffic overall and build income. I know it's often suggested to build one site till it takes off and then take on another. I guess to some extent I'll be focusing on specific sites at a time, but also taking advantage of tools to keep that steady flow of link juice going to them all.
