I started SEO in April 2010. I came to this forum around then as well. I had never done SEO. I barely knew how to edit html code. I registered a couple domains. I blasted and blasted until I couldn't blast anymore. At times I felt frustrated... I even told myself a couple of times that I would never be able to make auto pilot money. After sandboxing a couple of my websites, 2 of them reappeared 8 months after registration on page 1 on Christmas Day ( Coincidence? I think not ). One of the domains is receiving 500-600 Visitors per day. Another is a service I provide ( I now outsource it ) that receives 50 visitors per day and I get about 1-2 customers per day from that. I make about $100 per day off these two domains, and all my domains combined are worth about $40k. I did this all within 10 months of learning SEO. I used Senuke + Sick Submitter + Xrumer ... all in that order. I am now making money and not doing shit. I am couch locked most of the day, and sometimes I get up and wipe my ass with my money. The picture below is me "WORKING". Oh ya, and I forgot to mention Mr. Pink Blanky. He's my best friend. The End.
