((( THIS MIGHT BE LONG BUT PLEASEEEE TAKE THE TIME TO READ AND ANSWER ME ))) A couple of you guys who was reading my journal saw that I was doing micro niche sites. Got a partner since november and found a cool "niche" to make those adsense sites. Long story short, we started to pick out some nice revenue, had a site making up to 15Euros in a day with an average of 9 euros / day. Things started to look promising, first month made 30 euros then 200 but a couple of days ago you all read threads about people saying their adsense account got banned for "invalid clicks". I think they wanted to steal some more money but giving some bans left and right. Our sites were really good, only nice link building with varied anchor texts, nothing spammy, and the content was about 8 articles including videos, pictures and of course UNIQUE content written by me and my partner. Of course my story is we got banned as well, and lost 400euros from the account. I know its not a HUGE amount for others but we really needed those money. All the system was put in place, and wanted to outsource. NOW WHY AM I HAPPY ? I am happy because it kinda opened my eyes. This model of "business" with micro niche sites is quite stupid, because if YOU CANT OUTSOURCE from the beginning its extremely tedious and a lot of work is involved. Besides this, its never safe. I mean you never know when the next fucked up panda update is gonna come, what will it bring, and you are basically hoping to flip those sites as soon as possible. Also it's a game of numbers, from 10 sites you build only about 3-4 will actually be GOOD. Now honestly my question is why people try to do this ? You are depending on Google's mercy to not get the adsense account banned + that you never know how mighty Panda will play with your ranks. It's also a game of numbers and you have to constantly put some income back in the system to make it grow and you have to filter out the bad outsourcers which is a headache. I understand the guys who do this for a long time and have quite a hundred couple sites. They know the game and all such, but others ? Why you consider this method is OK ? I feel like I was kinda stupid to lose so much time with those sites, when you can just make SEO for a larger authority site, or simply make SEO for offline clients and charge them monthly to "keep the site running". Like others say "be ahead" of the game, and don't do what everybody else does. I did exactly the opposite lol.
