I see many people giving benign info here. my answer; I wish i knew. earning a few hundred dollars a month was easy. Now after 4 years, 4 sites, 1 forum, and a blog/foum that has 200,000 or so page views a month, i'm still making the same amount of money i was when i had 1 site, no forum and 10,000 page views per month and nobody can tell me why that is.

there seems to be a lot of self promotion on this forum, but very little help in real terms. At least i've got the gutts to say to you, "i don't know' rather than treying to make it look as though i do.
rss feeds, pres-sell, text links, selling ad space that's a laugh, been there seen it done it and my income hasn't increase in 3 years where as my traffic has by over 10 times.
