    hey guys sadly Panda wiped me out, my website that was generating $1500+ a month is not getting my any sales now
    It was a good run i guess, I'm not sure what i can do about it

    So i decided to move on,
    right now in my hand i have 30,000 I'm looking to invest my money in,
    any serious ideas? doesn't even need to be the full 30k but i just want to see where would you put this kind of money in and why

    thank you

    Hello,
    I've had some great experience with building micro niche sites for either keep them as a long term revenue source or improve on them with the final goal of selling them for a profit later. That's the reason I teamed with a group of awesome and successful guys that were having the same positive results to start selling that service. That approach could work for you.
    There's also other options, like PPC. For this you need not only a nice money cushion (which you have) but also some experience, or the will to fight the marked learning curve. This is another possibility that you could look into too.

    I have a site I'm selling that you may want to consider. It's 7+ years old, great domain and has 100% organic traffic being listed for all relevant keywords on the first page of all major search engines anywhere from #2-#6. I haven't had to do any SEO work for years but with a little more put into it, it could get to the very top fairly quickly. I historically was running it as a very hands on business where I did all of the order fulfillment (major pain and time consuming) but It can be automated very easily with the same products (even more) that I can get from a great drop shipper. It can easily make a great passive income of a minimum of 4K based on my conservative estimates, more than likely double that. It's a very niche business. I haven't been doing much with it for the past year but previous years financials are very good. If interested, just PM me for the url and any questions you have, thanks.

    HA, reading his post I was thinking to say he should create some BS buzz around FB stock and short it. MMs made loads on the pump & dump.

    anyways man, there are ton of "I have xxx to invest, what do I do? " threads. Go see an financial adviser or buy an evergreen niche site, build your own products/services and most importantly whatever you do Do Not have your success/business Depend on someone else (as much as possible).

    With that kind of cash you really do not have to depend on the stupid animals. Do what big guys do. Buy your way to top. media buys, affiliates etc. good luck

    I was looking into that but ever since Panda destroyed my websites, i don't think i would know how to rank others if i can't even rank back my new or old sites to the first page, and they are very very small niches too

    Don't spend any money right now, just immerse yourself in keyword research for a while. That can never be overstated.

    Then pull the trigger on 10 or so niches with at least 5,000 exact searches and outsource everything. With 30k you can do some big sites, mixed with small and medium ones.

    if you want shoot me an pm. If you had an good site, with solid product/service and working business model you should not abondon it just because some panda ate your traffic. Starting from ground up again will be painful, unless of course you buy your way up, which still could be risky.

    Agree with all the others: don't abandon your site, keep working on it. You've been there, you've done it - so it's certainly doable to get back there again!And if you really want to invest your money, make sure to come up with a diversified portfolio of sites, different revenue streams, different models.

    1) Go here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-money-dont-know-where-start-look-inside.html

    2) Pick three methods and focus on them, doing all the task needed by yourself

    3) When you start making money with the methods, outsource them to some VAs from Philippines (of course, in a way that they don't understand the methods in its entirety, otherwise you risk to have the VAs running away with your money making ideas)

    4) Rinse and repeat

    5) Lay in the sun on some exotic beach.

    1. Duplicate your site to another domain, alter your content to be panda proof where aplicable
    2. Remove all your content from your old domain to avoid duplicate content penalty or burn this site completely
    3. Buy Quality SEO services for $1500
    4. PROFIT !!!

    I'd say go for PPC ! Initially it'll be risky and hard work but once it's running well your set !

    Diversify your investment portfolio. Half online and half offline. Again, in online invest in different schemes, this will cover the associated risks.

    If you want to play with the big boys and make real money, learn PPC.
