    Yep, it's been 3 months and http://www.montysmegamarketing.com has been creeping up on the top 100,000. Today I hit 98,177.

    Feel free to come on over and drop a comment or two for some linky-love and free traffic. It's currently a PR2.

    Just keep it clean and relevant.

    (edit: oh, by the way, there has been very little black-hat involved, for the record. this is good old- fashioned white-hat SEO)

    Well, from what I remember when Monty was starting out... he
    1. Belonged to BHW
    2. Took action until his plan worked

    I remember a few months ago when the "Will Monty Quit his Day Job Challenge" kicked off... ever since then , he's been steamrolling everything in sight...

    Anyway, just wanted to say gratz Chris, you've accomplished a lot.

    Thanks, all.

    You're right, mdd345. I just stopped hopping from thing to thing and focused on ONE thing. Well, honestly, I still hop a bit. BUT I focus MORE time on the blog than on anything else.

    Even at 98K, it's challenging to figure out the proper way to monetize the traffic...but with that much traffic, it sort of takes care of itself.

    The secret? I just write about how to make teh moniez on da interwebz.

    No, seriously, I'm not a rich guy (yet). I'm just a guy making some bucks here and there and I think my readers know that and appreciate that.

    Oh, and I post some boobs every once in a while. Just kidding. Well, actually, there was http://www.montysmegamarketing.com/google-employees-stock-options-going-goinggone which still gives me that "special feeling".

    Congrats...I'm currently still jumping from one thing to another. Its hard for me to stay focus on one thing because so much new stuff comes out everyday.

    Yeah, that will burn you out very quickly.

    Just try to pick two or three things and focus on them until you get them to be profitable.

    Then scale! :)

    No, I'm sticking to one or two things for now. Too many projects and I'll be a jack of all trades but master of none.

    Top 50,000 is next.

    great stuff Monty, i have checked out your blog a few times!
    Sites relating to IM stuff is the best way to break into the Alexa as most people are running the toolbar!

    I would imagine you will get a nice PR boost when the update comes around looking at your backlink profile. I would be expecting a PR 5 :)
