    My journal..

    I have had domain and hosting with h@stg@t@r from spring, i had free gifts type of site which did not rank good EARLIER...

    So time passed and i did SEO, tweaked my site so it was ~70% optimized for my keywords, competitors were somewhere <20% with the keywords i use, which are googled around 8000 times a day.

    I'v made around ~70 backlinks to it with scrapebox, all of them have been sticking now for few months.


    I stopped promoting my main domain after awhile because i felt like that all what i have done did not do anything, my site did not
    show up in google.
    So i just made alot of subdomains and made facebook apps on them, studied other stuff while my domain just sat there alone,
    taking my money away.

    Getting like 4 visitors/month.


    Now as i learned so much about SEO, i just felt that my domain is no use, "i'v complished more with FB, i should cancel my subscription with hostgator and try again other time when i figure out niche for myself".


    Well i cancelled my site now and emptied out of my valuable scripts... And guess what.. after i cancelled the site.. i checked my last visitors and what keywords did they use... someone had used the keyword i use one SEO and found my site... I was like "that cant be, that lonesom bugger had have been quite bored to flip google pages so much that he accidentally came into my site."

    BUT I WAS WRONG! i searched my keyword and my site is now visible on page #2!!! I JUST CANCELLED THE BLOODY THING!!!...

    But i'm not that much in agony because now i know, that SEO really helps! it just needs TIME! TIME! TIME! time is everything with SEO, you have to give time to google to start love your site!

    Now i can say that i have accomplished something with this hobby and it havent been even a year (somewhat 9months), i have had alot of success with other methods but this is most euphoric victory for me compared to my other methods.

    Now i could do SEO with my native language and be GOD at it, cause people in my country does not know much about SEO, so knowing that i can process my sites faster and more reliable to page #1 gives me the kicks!:beerglass


    For all the "newbies" out there: Throw your mind away from "getting badass rich in a hour NOW!", and think IM as.. i would say it like this or relevant to this: Having a website is like frying bacon, it is so bloody delicious when your doing it right!


    Now i will sink my mouth into victory beer with scotch!:beerglass​

    Finland, i came across only one finnish IM here long time ago, and he is whitehat IM.

    I love scotch, whisky, vodka, its all good!

    dryheat360: thanks! yeah patience is a virtue, i hope some people would knowledge that :)

    rever20: Yeah i was shocked that i came so close, and i think i would have been going closer to page 1 day-by-day if i had waited more.
    But i will let my niche die, i wont dig up my pet from it's grave after i bury it.


    Salute to you all!
