So I am a 18 y.o. affiliate marketer and I started this SEO journey about 3 months ago. Now I have over 35 PBN sites 4 affiliate sites, and 1 local client. I have been interested in rank and rent SEO though. I've become very skilled at competition checks and SEO on the local level is very weak as I've seen. I've failed at this model 3 times already, here are how each try went: 1.) I made a new domain (didn't understand metrics and links back then) and tried to rank for easy terms. I failed and got caught up on the 5th and 6th page of Google. 2.) I made a new domain again...tried to rank for easy terms again.... I failed and got caught up on the 5th and 6th page of Google again... 3.) I bought a PBN site after seeing this video by Alex Becker and it was absolute shit (but I didn't know at the time) and got to the 3rd and 4th pages of Google (it had only 2 RD's, but good CF and TF which fooled me...only DA 10 and PA 13) Long story short, I'm running out of money, hope, and confidence that I'm even a good SEO at all (when rankings fluctuate so do my emotions...crap) I'm so fucking hungry to succeed you just have no idea. I've been a failure all my life at everything I do and my family frowns upon me everytime I touch a keyboard to work on business. I just want to show them that I can do this and that I can make money online like I believe I can. I'm down to about $1.3k savings after starting with about $5k (I've invested most in affiliate sites but those take a long time to grow) For try #4 I'm going with my trusted domain broker I've gotten over 30 sites from so that I know I'm getting quality and I've nailed down a niche I'm going to go after that has high client value, but a soft SERP. I just want to win so badly, please god let this work. Wish me luck my friends. P.S.: Anyone who has done what Rank and Rent as Alex Becker describes and has been successful at it I'd really appreciate some guidance and support. It's so hard to find information on this stuff and people that are actually out there doing it as he describes. P.P.S.: If you are going to speak from opinion and not factual, empirical, experience then please do not give me advice. I still love you all though.
