Howz things with the project site today?
Well the news is not good news – Google dumped the site. There is only one ranking left from the four targeted rankings, and that’s been dropped 9 places – from first page to second page.
So first things first – will I keep on going and keep on trying to rank the site? Erm – nope, I don’t believe I will. If I see some return of the rankings over the coming weeks then probably I’ll pick up the reins once more, but until then I feel its going to be cash down the tubes. Up till now I’ve invested about $400 US and with a mere trickle of income from AdSense, so its hurting rather a lot. But that was the risk I took and its not paid off – such is life.
I could of course try out another method here – purchase a different domain name and take all the current content from the current domain and add it to the new domain and begin all over. Whether that would work however, I really don’t know. May be worthy of a go since its got to be a very lucrative niche once the rankings have indeed been achieved (preferably in Google, and not so much in Yahoo Search or Bing).
What to make of this? Why did the site get dumped?
Well, there are a number of potential reasons.
