Prior to last week, I had about 1 month of a steady earning of $20 a day and my traffic had been rising from 1k uniques a day to 2.5k uniques a day and the sky was the limit from then on.Then last thursday I had the best earning day I have ever had and hit $65 in one day. I was on mid-bottom page 1 for many keywords (about 8) and then rank 2-3 for a few (3-5) aswell. It was one of the best days of my life hitting $65 in one day, because I set a goal about 7 months ago to hit $50 a day in my online marketing efforts. It was a great feeling later that night when I slept confident that tomorrow I will have even more traffic and make an estimated $100 in that day. Then I woke up. Reality finally set in that if you abuse Google with xrumer blasts, scrapebox blasts, you will get the consequences and be slapped. The next day I woke up and for every keyword that I previously had been ranked on page 1, I was know on page 8-10... for every keyword. This dramatically hurt my earnings and was a realization that being reliant on one traffic source will hurt you. I was reliant on google as my main traffic source and as soon as my site got slapped back a few pages I started making nothing from this site. So what did I do wrong? The days prior to the blast I did several xrumer blast and scrapebox blast to my site. I did a slightly heavier one than I normally do so this had some effect i'm sure. So what did I do now? From what I have read, the best situation would be for me to keep building backlinks high-pr ones, and be patient... I have read that it should take 3 days up to a month to get out of the google dance/slap.
