    Although I not a professional SEO guy, here are few things I've learned in 5 months of IM and I would like to share them with you;
    1. .info domains can rank well, but they require a little bit more work, preferably white hat.
    2. Even if you have a traffic peak, if the articles are shitty written, the visitors will exit the site quickly;
    3. In some cases, Infolinks can be better than Adsense. Even if the CPC is low, at least there way more clicks (in my case);
    4. even if you are some minor grammar errors but still have a good and informative content, visitors will stay and read and even comment or submit the articole to their social media accounts;
    5. Yahoo Answers is a great way to get traffic, especially if you have multiple sites and you do not post links to the same site all the time. Moreover, if you spend some time on giving helpful replies, then other people will get on your site;
    6. Do not expect to make huge sales with Amazon, especially if you have a new review site.
    7. It's important to learn how to make keyword research, or otherwise, you will find out that your micro niche is harder than you expected.
    8. Pay attention at your page loading time. If your page loads extremely slow, analytics may count the visitors, but they won't have patience for your site to load.
    9. There is no such thing as luck. You can't big clicks, huge affiliate sales and lots of fans in the same time, especially if you want to do this without investing anything.

    Next set in 5 months from now on.

    I had a bodybuilding related site. Sold it with $350...after 4 months. No investment, almost no link building. Just targeted traffic.
    My point is that if you do your job well (and since it was about bodybuilding and powerlifting it was about my biggest passions), then an .info domain can't stop you from getting in the right place.

    .info rank well.

    They used to be blacklisted because of spammers now they can rank great.

    .info domains are great, and I don't see how they need more work. Yahoo/Bing, Google look at these TLD's just like they do a .com, .net etc..


    Good point, which is why it's important to write your own articles or pay someone to do it.


    I haven't had luck with Infolink, so far Adsense has beat every other network for me.

    hehe... were your typos on purpose here?

    Definitely... some of my sites get a lot of traffic from Yahoo! Answers.

    I put some Amazon products on my BEST tablet site and after 8,000 U.V I got a sale. I made a HUGE $32.00... pass :)

    Very, very true. It's so important to research before you do anything. So many people fail at these before their site is even made!

    True... if your site takes over a second or do... that is very bad.

    Research, Organization, and... well... just do it!

    Nope, I didn't make the typos intentionally. I am not a native English speaker, therefore small errors may occur.
