Interesting argument.10 years ago the same post would have been written saying how easy it was in the early 2000s to make splash blogs and rank just by KW stuffing.
10 years ago was just as easy or as difficult as today, depending on your perspective.
It's hard to prove such statement as "hard" is subjectively. One might struggle in a niche, whereas someone else might completely slay. Moreover, such declaration is extremely vague - in which "niches" has it gotten harder? What has it changed / made it harder? etc.
In my opinion, the difficulty has grown alongside the potential. We've all been evolving hand in hand with the Internet. It's a mouse and cat game. Surely, it has gotten harder, but so have we.
However, I agree with your mentality of criticizing the "Back then it was easier" as this attitude will get you nowhere.
You want to imply that there are people who make $100/day with the same methods and the same effort like ten years ago?Turn OFF your brain > read the OP = its a nice read
Turn ON your brain > read the OP = what a joke man
Just look at CPA networks, people earn $100+ so easy, and trust me.. most of em keep their stuff auto-pilot
