The most ridiculous thing you ever did when starting out in IM

    It's always fun to laugh at the most ridiculous things we have done when first starting our ventures in IM.

    For me, the most ridiculous thing I ever did was when I first learned about backlinking, and fiverr (at the same time). There was a gig that offered 10,000 backlinks with any anchor of my choice.

    10,000 backlinks for five dollars? Are you effing kidding me! That's got to be the best damn deal I've ever heard of! Within minutes, I blasted my 1 and only site with 10,000 backlinks that all had the exact...same...anchor...text...

    And the sad thing was, this was all post panda and penguin. I'm sure you can guess what happened to my 1 and only site.

    So...What about you? I'd love to laugh at someone besides myself.

    Most Ridiculous thing i did was selling my Well developed tech blog ($4k) , which has alexa of 50k now, and was/is ranking number 1-2 for many keywords.

    But then i started two other blogs (i created 1 and bought 1). Now developing it but have to do a lot of work, missing those days when i had to post only 2-3 post in a week and see plenty of money in my adsense account every morning.

    But never mind, now i have 2 blogs and will take these two blogs to that level too.

    Didnt sell some huge project when I had offers for them (both in the low 6-digits) - instead stopped working on them and let them rot until they where worth nothing anymore :D

    Not having a plan and just blasting as many links to my site with xrumer and scrapebox as possible lol. In hindsight I had all the gear and no idea.

    Thinking that clicking on the search results of my website on Google will increase the site rankings. I kept clicking on my site results for hours.

    It was in 2008. I bought my second domain name and I got an email with a great offer for it, but I had to pay for the appraisal before they would buy it for $5000. Of course, I didn't even think that it could be a scam, so I paid for the appraisal and never heard from the guy again :D. I really thought I would get 5k for the domain hahaha.
