    Hi,

    I quit my job 2 years ago. After that I was just hanging around, drinking and I had no money. So I had to go back to my parents house in a small town. One day I thought about my life and that I cant continue like that and I have to make money. I am a computer freak since I am 14, but I didn't knew about the whole IM stuff. So I didn't saw a future making money online. I started a fast food restaurant. I invested 15k (I lent the moeny from my dad), but I closed the restaurant. It wasn't making any money. It was a very hard time, because I was working 14 hours/day..
    After I closed the restaurant I started selling jewelery and accessoires Online. I invested 3k but I didn't sold anything in 4 month..so I quit this biz as well.
    I was researching in the Internet how to make money online and I found out about IM. I learned SEO, improved my Webdesign skills and started a adult website. The adult website was working very good I earned 30$ a day after one month of promoting my website. I know that 30$ is not much, but I had the goal to make 100$ after 3 monath. Then it happened.. my isp blocked the website, because adult content is not allowed in my country. I am 22 and I don't know what to do know. I lost a lot of money. I think it's all about luck..What should I do now. I have to pay many bills this month. Should I go back to my old job(supermarket cashier)?
    I am grateful for any suggestions about making money..

    By the way: sorry for bad englisch..

    Sorry to hear this man, I'd advice you to go for freelance to make some fast money on the web. Write articles, reviews etc, don't give up! Good luck :)

    Get your old job back, pay your bills, while working your arse off trying to rank pages and make money. Remember, there is no plan B. Work hard, figure it out, do what makes you happy.

    I've gone through the same. Now I've got my own house, married next year (all paid for), looking to buy a flat in next 9 months. Very happy but I wasn't for a long time.

    The only thing that will make you happy is working 1000% each and every day, and not slowing down when you see good money.

    I expect you to post on this thread again in 3 months, after working every single day your 1000% best, and tell us how much happier you are.

    You're in charge of everything in your life, speak to you soon.

    First of all I don't understand how an ISP effected your website. If you can't access it then start
    using a VPN from now on. Get any job you can find to land on your feet and then do IM projects
    in your spare time until its worth more than your normal job.

    Good luck!

    Get a job and keep on learning n working in IM field. First step is to make yourself financially secure so that u can pay your bills. Next, study n work on your SEO skills for few hours on daily basis. Once you gain a decent level of knowledge u can start taking actions. Just never quit n never lose hope. Never doubt that you can't do it.

    I'm very sorry to hear that.
    Well, if you still want to continue your adult site, you have 2 options:
    1. Buy a US Private Proxy.
    2. Buy a VPS.
    And just continue what you are doing!

    If you don't want any of the options above, just switch to different niche and start all over again.
    Just never repeat those mistakes and never quit. I'm sure you'll get there! :)

    This is what I was going to say. You confronted a small problem, there are many ways to get over it.

    OP is quitting toooo soon! Yes you spent a lot of money and made mistakes but that's apart of life! Pick yourself up, brush your shoulders off, keep moving forward and make things happen!

    Adult websites are not allowed in my country too, I had one website which i was getting 25-30k hits daily and it was banned so from 25-30k hits it fell into 5-10hits daily. So here is what I did:
    Bought 6 domains but use only 1 of them, when daily hits reach up to 30k daily, I took backup of the site and install the backup on 2nd domain. Wait for couple of days for site to get indexed and with htaccess i redirect 1st domain to 2nd domain. This is the only idea i can give you.

    That your website is blocked is very small problem...
