F@@@ing P@@@@d off! OK, so after much studying, I find a KW that has a monthly global and local search of 95k according to adwords. Buy a domain containing that keyword then build a site around it. Do my SEO as best I can. Add plenty of good, unique content. Built some tier 2 sites around it and blasted them with wiki links and social bookmark links. Then 2 days ago I hit page one for my KW, the first time I have ever managed to do this. of course I am really happy, seems the hard work paid off. And then... 100 uniques a day since I hit page one. WTF! Time to give this up I think.
