How many more Atavans do I need to take to get myself zoned out enough to write yet another article for purpose of backlinks?
How many more minutes will I wonder why I am so dam thirsty before I will be motivated to get up and make a fresh pot of tea?
How many more times will I check all of my affiliate program accounts to see if I made anymore money today?
Dude, one time . . . .let's just say I saw sleep nowhere on the horizon, and told a Dr. as much.
One Atavan. . .dunno the strength. I was wrong.
Oh I don't abuse them Wesman, sposed to take 2 a day to stay nice to people and keep my nerves from causing weird body pains I have that stem from hyperness and from anxiety. I'm so tightly wound it takes a lot to put me down, but most days I take 1-2 just to tone down the dial a tad wee bit,lol.
Most of us have. . . .something or another that we use to feel right from time to time.
. . . .and then there are the Space Cowboys, Cowboys From Hell, and . . . .Me.
I can't get myself to write another thing today at all.
The tea just got finished.
And yes I checked all of my affiliate accounts yet again and have not made anymore money.
I'm working a bit today on Ryan's excerptz with some back links, I also like Article Blast - even though there's no adsense for the authors there, I still write a decent little article, throw in a picture and a hub link.
I ain't been doing much of anything on Adsense this month - less than ten bucks.
Article Blast get's indexed fast but then drops like a rock in rank quickly, but a good quality backlink source for sure.
I broke $45 for the first time this past month Wesman, still nothing spectacular and for sure it was mostly on my websites not here. If I wasn't so spaced out and could get myself to work harder I know I could easily bank those $200-$300 a month Google checks. I just get lost in thought too often instead of execution lmao.
Good For You!!!! I've never had that kind of month, but . . .I tend to write about shit that most people probably don't care much about. I write about what I care about.
. . .not a great money making strategy for me! Ha!
I don't care. I'm going to work at it until I start making steady income from it. I don't have much else to do.
Have you looked at Xobba Tribune????? I believe Sunforged . . .runs that site. I'm on that one too, but have yet to contribute.
I spend too much time making shetoldme shit.
No I'll have to check that one out Wesman. I have looked over your Hubs a few times and i have noticed that you have some topics with some great money making potential.
If there is one major thing I can point out is that you do not properly target keywords for proper on page SEO thus you are at the mercy of the search engine picking and choosing what they will put you on searches for and usually that's going to be basic terms really hard to rank for.
A great example is your Hub on King Snakes, awesome Hub by the way, but to rank for King Snakes is going to be next to impossible, but had you targeted just a specific type of king snake and done so with proper on page SEO you would have a much better shot.
I see this same scenario for many of your product Hubs as well. The difference between people making money off Google and those making little boils down to at the core keyword choice and implementing that keyword properly.
In the context of that you can still target the things you want to write about, but just do so in more of a money making geared manner by making slight changes.
One thing about hub pages always something new to learn. This is new to me. Not only do I have to know my keywords but I also need to know where to put them to optimize my hub? All this while I am barely learning to put a few words together properly to put my point across.
Think I will go hide under a rock while a snake sleeps above it. Better yet maybe I just need to go to bed after being awake for 30 hours straight. Maybe I will wake up and find this has all been a bad dream and the hard work ahead of me won't exist.
My next question is where do you place keywords to get the best results? I have at least two hubs where this information can help other writers on hub pages if you are up to sharing? This is to say nothing about 30 or so of my own hubs.
I could go on and on about things I have read Wheel. Everything you do in SEO on page or off page is meant for one thing only, trying to persuade Google that your work is the most relevant for the keyword you are targeting. I've done a Hub before about on page factors to pay attention to and while many people did find it helpful not many people read it. Here are the highlights of that though.
1. main targeted keyword should be in the URL , the title and the description. For the description you have no control over that ere on Hubpages but if you put the keyword in the very first sentence it should show up in the search engine description.
2. As close to the very first words in the very first paragraph you should have your main keyword in bold and italicized. Same goes with the end of your Hub try to make the very last words your keyword in the same fashion.
3. In one other spot in the middle of the Hub underline your main keyword.
4. Make sure your total keyword density is around 3-4% in the whole Hub.
5. Make sure you also mention many 4-5 similar related keywords at least one time each also.
That's based on all I have read on the subject from many people who are ultra successful online and it has worked well for me in ranking.
Hmmmm. My Adsense earnings in June improved by 33% over May's amount. I also earned payout rather quickly last month, so I suppose we all have different experiences with Adsense. This is another reason why I've never tried the HP ad program.
I've actually made the move to trying to earn more so through affiliate sales and now am set to start getting into CPA advertising Randy. To me all Hubpages has become is a place for a backlink though I know it's still working for some.
I'm branching out too, Ben. It doesn't pay to depend on any one source of revenue on the net as it changes so quickly, but my Adsense earnings have increased every month even after the panda slap.
My Amazon sales were doing good too until June, and even then I had more clicks than the month before. Something is fishy with the Amazon thing though, I don't quite trust the way the program is operated here.
Yes it is, WTS! A very large specimen too, I might add. I see them frequently as they are searching for rattlers on our farm. This one was over 6 feet long and was on the trail of a canebrake rattlesnake which crossed the dirt road shortly before in the same spot.
Wait a minute.
That snake... hunts other snakes?
My phobia doesnt know what to do with this.
Aw, get a little backbone, Wyanjen! It's a "snake eat snake" world out there and you gotta be tough to survive.
The King is immune to venomous snake bites and helps keep the rattlesnake population down around here. They make great pets too! Want me to send you one?
Not too many rattlers here in Detroit Randy. I saw one once where I grew up in northern MI tho.
I know its a silly phobia but theres no stopping it.
Show me spiders, scorpions, any other critter you can think up - and Ill be fine.
This is an absolute nightmare to me - it kept me up the nite I read it
(warning - disgusting link! but fascinating!)
apparently a second gator wandered over and did in the snake...

And the pythons will eventually move into my area, some specialists predict. I encounter many species of snakes on a daily basis this time of year, so I suppose I am used to them. Alligators are common too, along with many other species of animals and birds.
I see several deer every day as they graze in the peanut fields all along the roads and wild turkey too. I'm extremely lucky to live here and watch all of these species as they live their lives.
I do have a video on one of my hubs showing us catching a huge canebrake rattler if you want to see some of these dangerous creatures we encounter on a regular basis. Fascinating creatures, actually!
Ive seen that vid
(sorry this laptop has a broken postrophe key. So you cant see the apostrophe in front of the word postrophe.)
Up north we always saw deer in the front lawn... porcupines, raccoons which my dad would let in the house , woodchucks, turkeys, etc.
For a few years they had an eagle nesting there. How awesome!
Coyotes and rarely bears and bobcats up there, but never anything that came too close when we were little.
Lots and lots of snakes but only a few venomous species. We always had dogs that kept them away.
My house is 10 miles south of Detroit city limit. Its amazing what I see here, in such an urban area. All kinds of bunnies of course. Foxes, coyotes, hawks.. there is a woodchuck living under my neighbors deck. I see deer every day here too. Its awesome. I love Michigan!
Sorry to hijack the thread Good to see you again & take it easy
Last year I lived some in Seaside, California. I saw stuff there that just ain't happening in Texas.
One day a pack of 13 huge wild turkeys. . . .just walked down the road. You'd have thought that they were the crips or the bloods.
Another time I saw a coyote. . . just walking behind a woman pushing a baby in a stroller.
I saw a coyote strolling down the sidewalk once. I yelled it at
Go back to the swamp! Somebody will shoot you here!
It just looked at me going by... wasnt even afraid.
Should it have been? Unless you were foaming at the mouth it had no reason to fear you.
Are you on the West Coast? In Texas, where I'm at, you hear what sounds like groups of hundreds of them . . . .but you almost NEVER see them!
Hey, look at my profile - I did a nice King Snake Article, and it's the newest Hub.
Were way off topic - but whatever, most snakes eat other snakes, and King Snakes are KING Snakes because they can generally take any snake in whichever domain that they live in. Rattlers are just little punks to a King Snake!
Amazon has never done a thing for me. I now have 7 websites I dabble with, never could see the point of putting all my money making efforts into a website that takes 40% of the impressions. It has however been a great place for learning the ropes so to speak.
I had my highest Amazon earnings in March with several hundreds of dollars for my share. Not bad in April and May either, but June, even with an increase in traffic and clicks, was pretty bad.
I think the time of day one's affiliate code is displayed makes a huge difference in the sales. Most Americans are asleep for a large part of the time so are not shopping online. We have no way of knowing when our Amazon code is displayed here on HP.
oh thank god! Finally someone has defined the difference between "those making money off Google and those making little boils" I was wondering why I all I was making was many boils; thought it was from eating too many fatty foods; good to know its just that I hadn't been paying enough attention to keywords. or something. Thanks, guys!
Lmao okay. Me thinks you are being sarcastic though! You could always hire an army of indians to travel the world on camels that randomly click ads everyday from new locations, I'm still working out the details of that plan.
That's exactly what I need! I'm really more of a long rang plan guy - not too long a range plan though.
I want to make money in THIS lifetime, sure - but here's a thought I've had - what if some of my shit truly is classic, will adsense, etc, pay . . . .my younger brother after I'm dead? What happens if I get ran over by a lawn mower tomorrow?
that's a new one! let me know how that works for you - I had considered friending random people on facebook, getting them to click ads for me and reciprocating in kind - we could even start a huge rip-off site with the sole purpose of getting ourselves sent to prison for 90 years and fined 80 million! hahaha! and then I would probably have much worse than "little boils"!!
No the furniture is rough in prison you would have the boils rubbed off in no time,lol.
yes, I never thought of that - so I will be plagued by those little boils forever, unless I go to prison and sit on their rough furniture (which sounds like a euphemism!) just because I was too lazy to look up keywords! oh bother. guess I won't try any of those schemes for quick clicks.
But wait if you send me $19.95 in the mail I will send you the answer.
only if you give me your bank account number, credit card number, date of birth, and mother's maiden name. Oh yes, and I will need your full real name and address, also - then, for sure, I will send you the 19.95! ( less 18.95 for processing fee and 1.00 fee for transfer of non-existent funds )
