This shit is really killing my self esteem. Every time I check my serps (which is like once every 30 minutes) and it stays the same or goes down it is like a steak being driven into my heart. I'm afraid empty 'just keep at it and you will make it!' statements will not do. I have been battling like a spartan warrior for MONTHS AND MONTHS trying to rank for a crumby 1k keyword and losing miserably. I'm ok with ranking being a long haul thing that you chip away at but I think I have to find a quicker and more reliable way of getting income in the short term to tide me over- one for monetary stability and two for my sanity and feeling like I am not a total pitiful loser. So what can I do? I tried putting a scrapebox ad on fiverr but no interest there. I have been trying to learn imacros but that is mind bogglingly frustrating so that nicely adds to my extreme stress levels. Next thing I know I'll be having to stoop to scamming people with diseases (I jest but I'm getting desperate- which ironically means I am now a ripe target for any scammer reading this). It's pathetic that I only have to make a measly $150-200 a week in the short term and I am failing pitifully at it while the deadline to make it grows closer every day.
