I've been absent

This affiliate marketing life is truly a rollercoaster. So full of hope and promise for a few days and then sunk in doom and gloom that it will never work. Guess where I have been lately?

I just have to keep plugging!! It can and will work if I am persistent. What caught my eye today is a site that was sold on sitepoint for the price of $5000.00. Site was: http://www.pregnancyetc.com/index.htm . This site only has about 12 pages of content!! not much at all ...but affiliate links and contextual ads are strategically placed and it brings in $500.00 a month. (the site was less than 2 years old but had a page rank of 4 and good back linking ) ...anyway, I think it is truly amazing.

Anyway, enough dreaming the good news is that the traffic on my main site has consistently grown month over month since I started in august and this month the daily numbers have almost every day been over 300 ...where as last month I only had a few days over 300.

Message for today is keep on keeping on!

Great to see you back! I am definitely going to have to check out sitepoint more often to see what seems to be selling. That's pregnancy site - it's insane... but I can totally see why it works.

This affiliate marketing is definitely a rollercoaster ride! :)

Hey greenaffiliate....
I was wondering what was bringing traffic to my site, and finally this afternoon I decided to take a look at your blog. I'm the owner (soon not to be) of PregnancyEtc.com, and am glad to see that the sale of my site has brought you inspiration. If you're looking for more inspiration, know that I actually received bids for more than that, but it occurred after the BIN post was made. (I felt obligated to honor that.)

Anyway, best of luck to you, and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. My email is in my profile. :)

Thanks for posting. And very nice work on the pregnancy site. I am using it as a model for a site on a completely different niche. I thought your ad placement and use of photography and design was extrememly well done!! Best of luck in your new ventures!! What are your new projects?
thanks!
