    What Ever Makes Money..LEGALLY

    Right Here!
    Ok as many of you here are doing my sites are NOT my full time income. I work a 40 hour work week and this type of income is extra and/or helpful for bills.

    I have my hands in many things and I think im either overloaded OR just not doing it right. What I have listed are the 4 websites I manage on a almost daily schedule (give or take a day or 2)

    Im listing my tools that I own and also the websites I have up that make some sort of money (from .30 to thousands)

    Please advise what YOU would do knowing what you know from the list here and what you think I should be doing. To inform you my MAIN GOAL is not to do this full time (although of course it would be nice) BUT have at least a decent income from it where im not worried about money.

    Thank you for looking and helping.

    TOOLS THAT I HAVE:

    AMR - Article Marketing Robot: Used to use it weekly but have not done so in the past 2 months mainly due to Panda and other updates.

    Scrapebox - Use it maybe 2x a week posting towards my Tier 1 links (bookmarks, profiles etc)

    LinkPushes.net - A BHW service here and im signed up with 12 pushes a month that I generally divide between 2 of my websites

    Dripable.com - Another BHW service here that I just signed up with early this month. I sue it daily to help backlink my backlinks

    Other services - I buy a lot of small dollar seo jobs on different forums. Anything from profile links, bookmarks, seo nuke services etc.


    MY WEB SITES:

    Website #1 - its a music website I have had since 1999 (before that it was on geocities since 1995) It well aged, plenty of links and Im always adding links to it for close to 100 keywords (product related). No adsense or anything like that just strictly cd's & dvd's. Avg monthly about $100 in sales but of course it could be higher or lower but just an avg here.

    Website #2 - This is where I list my domains for sale. Im a domain investor and I have sold many domains from $1 to $4,000. Most are from direct contact via email. The website list my domains with info about them and ways to contact me direct or links to purchase the domain. I sell on avg a domain name $500 or more about once every 2 months (again on avg). Im in the process now of doing article marketing for certain domains, buidling backlinks to those domains to get them ranked for there respected keyword and niche. This is where my BULK of money comes from since the prices are so high. I just want more sales so more exposure.

    Website #3 & #4 - This website is for a clickbank product. I list this as 2 websites because I have 2 landing pages for this under 2 different niches. The CB product however covers both niches. All I done to it is throw links to it (bookmarks, profiles, articles) maybe a few times here and there. Some keywords are ranking well and others far below. I just got my first check for $119 but thats after about 4 months of off and on marketing.

    So with these sites, its easy to see that doman names blows all the other sites out the water but keep in mind that that business is very slow. The others could be good I suppose if I spend the correct time on it and seo with links and such.

    My question to you experts out there. If this was what you had to work with what would you do? Work on 1 only and leave the rest to drop down? Do a schedule of 1 site a day for the week? What do you suppose I do here???

    Thank you again all who reply and help!

    Hmm, it's difficult to comment on your CD & DVD site without knowing more. You say you're always adding links to it. Is that because your stock changes or because you're growing it?
    I'd be tempted to spend less time targetting product specific keywords and going for more generic terms.

    #2, I take it you're not targetting this site for serps directly but rather relying on traffic from the sites you're selling? If that's the case then from what you've said so far I'd look to spending 50% of your time on the sites you're selling.

    #3 & 4, I wouldn't give up on, keep chugging on the keywords you're yet to rank for (provided they are buying keywords of course), a few decent ranked sites like this could pay for your other services each month, and once ranked you can probably keep them top with minimum monthly effort.

    I think if I spent 1 hour a day weekdays on this and 2 on weekends I would consider all of these doable, particularly with the tools you have.

    For things like scrapebox, can you leave that running during the day whilst at work or overnight? In a week you could build up your own high PR AA or even manual commenting list.

    Given what you've said about #1 an #2 it makes me think it's even more achievable.

    Don't worry about the time (as in how many weeks/months it takes - not how many hours per day) so much as the profit.

    Decide how much of the income you are prepared to invest in outsourcing for example. You're already paying for dripable and linkpushing, make sure you use them to the absolute most.

    I think given what I know so far I'd stick with my first instinct to spend half the time on #2, then probably 25% of the time on #1.

    By the time you rank your clickbank products you should be so used to it that you can build a couple more once they are stable at the top.
