    Hey guys,

    I've been using SENuke, Scrapebox, writing articles, and more, and I have yet to see any real results. I've evaluated the competition of the keywords I'm targeting using Keyword Elite 2.0 and they are green, under 40. They keywords have less than 200,000 competing results. I'm not sure what else to do, I feel like quitting.

    Those are great tools but if you don't use them right they are worthless. How old are the sites you are working on? do you get any organic search / link / direct traffic now and if so how many UV's per day? where do you rank on the serps for the terms you are after? What are your expectations for earnings?

    Using a lot of big name software does not equal success. Getting ahead in any business requires out-of-the-box thinking, balls, determination and commitment.

    1. How long have you been trying?
    2. How many hours a day do you work on internet marketing?
    3. Do you know how to fully use the software to the best of its ability? (if you don't then the software is useless)
    4. Do you know your market? (as in do you know the product your marketing or did you randomly pick a niche that sounded good)
    5. Do you know who your target market? (as in do you know and can you get into the mind of the people you are marketing to)
    - What is your average clients/targets greatest desire?
    - What is your average clients/targets greatest problem? ect

    Solesuppliers, I've been in the game for a year now, I actually do make a buck or two a day but it's nothing to me.

    I've been trying to get into microniche sites, I have one I made myself that is a couple months old now, and one I bought that is about a year old.

    I've been trying microniches for a couple months now, yes I do know the software inside out. I do know the market. I do know the target market, but I will admit the amount of time I've been putting in has been very low since school has started, but even before school when I was doing IM all day, there were little results.

    It takes time. A year out isn't much experience. Yes, it is frustrating, but it makes it all the sweeter when you start pulling in revs. Personally, I prefer to try a bunch of different strategies at the same time. Keeps things fresh. Some work and some don't, but that is part of the learning process. Go through and read the sticky posts in the BH section. Some of those are old school strategies, but they still work and will start making money a week or two into them. I've got sites I spent a lot of time and money on that don't due crap, but I've also got ones that I spent almost no time on that make money week after week for years. Such is life...

    OP, it sounds like you have already given up on IM. You are doomed to fail unless you change your attitude. It sounds like your theory is sound, but you are having trouble implementing and properly executing your strategy.

    Is it getting to the top of SERPs that is giving you trouble? Or are you at the top of SERPs and still not making money?
