    I offer SEO to local companies in my area, for a variety of niches.

    I build out PBN sites, guest posting, blogging, social media, etc. I revamp their sites, optimize, everythign a SEO should do.

    The PBN method I am doing is becoming cumbersome- I have 115 sites in my network. It is not one big network, but split across 5-7 clients. Nothing overlaps, everything is individual- content, links, hosting, acocunts, etc.

    My domains are becomming deindexed at a higher rate than in the past, and not sure if I can keep this up.

    Do I move on to church and burn, or Amazon or affiliate methods?

    Right now my income form SEO is roughly $5,000 per month, and has been for the past 2 years but looking to increase and I cannot seem to land new clients, etc. Looking for my next step.

    Not sure. Everything is 100% manual, nothing spammy, I think they get deindexed because they are expired domains and possibly different niches than the original domain. These sits could pass manual review most of the time. I would say that I build 20 per month, and maybe 50% of them get deindexed within 1 year. It is frustrating because at that point I just have to scrap the domain, hosting, and content. Plus it is hard to maintain upward link trajectory with PBN sites fading out.

    The only reason why de-indexing occur is whenever Google's webmaster's guidelines have been violated or websites are full of blackhat techniques. The first thing to do is to resolve your server's issue first before making an effort to regain traffic. Once fixed, resubmit your sitemaps and increase the crawl rate. Use the fetch as GoogleBot tool on your entire site, this tool will signal Google that your site has been restored and ready to be crawled. Once Google has started re-crawling your website, do your homework and start regaining organic traffic. Always remember, Fresh, unique, well-written/well-structured content is essential.

    My money sites are not de-indexed, the pbN sites get de-indexed, after a year.

    I think we are off topic a little bit, I am looking for opinion on next steps... Do I continue to work as a SEO and try to grow my local business, or take a hand in affiliate or church/burn, or something else? Anyone got an opinion?
