How Many More?

    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.

              Yeah.

              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.

                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.  smile

                  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.

    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!  big_smile

      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.

        HEHEHEHEHEHEHE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        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 )
