    Hey guys. I have made a total of five blogs. My main one is on my own domain and the rest are on sub domains. I started roughly about 2 months ago after watching these videos called the clone cash system. Since I have made all of these sites I have only made a total of $2.46 in AdSense and I am fairly sure I must be doing something wrong. Only one of my sites gets a little bit of traffic from search engines and lately it hasn't gotten any at all. I have tried back linking and other things but nothing seems to work. I tried adding a few auto-blogged posts along with a few of my own recently but I think that might just be hurting me even more. Anyway, here is the URL to my site that has made me that small amount of cash haha. Thank you guys for all the help on this forum!

    I have been trying to make a link wheel but I'm not sure if the effort is worth it and from what I have done on the wheel it has not helped at all

    Edit: sorry I mixed up social networks and web 2.0 sites. Anyway, I have tried putting it in some places. Some bookmarking sites etc...

    If you've put a lot of effort, but think a link wheel is too much effort, I'm afraid to see what you've done lol.

    Follow the basics, social bookmarks, articles, linkwheels, seo minisites, ect.

    Go to onlywire.com, its free and does 30 top social sites. Bookmark your main page to start.

    Now get 10 articles written and submit them to 10 article sites with a link back to your blog. Use onlywire again and social bookmark each article. That should get you started to getting some traffic at least.

    Then you can worry about backlinking. Personally I hate backlink and prefer articles to drive traffic.

    I just looked at your webpage too. I think its too much in your face advertising at the top of the page. You need some more blending. The user should at least see a little bit of content when they land on your page.

    I guess your problem is the right niche/keywords, no matter how many back links you'll build you're just wasting your time if you do not target low competitive keywords, that's if you want to rank high and get search engine traffic. And dude don't use this kind of black themes, use clear colors .. .

    OK. I am making a new site tonight and I will see how it turns out in a couple of weeks. I did what I think is better keyword researching for this one so I am looking forward to see what happens.
