The Missing Link...

There always seems to be one. It seems like I always miss some part of the puzzle in this game and it keeps me from making the progress that I should.

That has always been the result of my lack of patience. I want everything and I want it NOW. No time to waste completely following strategy, just get me to the part where the money comes in. Unfortunately, the money doesn't come in if you don't take each actionable step when appropriate.

In this case, it is the part where I don't jump into Google Adwords until I have a real site ready. If this sounds familiar, it's probably because I've had this problem before. I get excited, Yahoo & MSN don't bring in the flood of sales I want, and I end up trying to go to battle with Google unprepared.

I think I've FINALLY learned this lesson. It's literally cost me thousands of dollars but I think it's finally sunk in. So here it is. This is the strategy that will get me from here to $1000/day profit.

1. Find a market - Actually, I've tested and narrowed it down to 5 markets to focus on. Of the 5, all but 1 is in the major leagues in terms of traffic.

2. Find a product for each market - Check!

3. Test the product - Check!

4. Build a full site - I keep skipping this part. I think I probably need at least 15 original articles.

5. Get it indexed and backlinked - Not there yet.

6. THEN go to battle with Google.

See, what I've found out is that Google makes things very difficult if you try to slink by with a mediocre attempt at a site. This is obvious with the "Google Slap" but sometimes they do it more subtly. Sometimes, they slowly drain your traffic until you're no longer getting enough to make sales. This has happened again and again on the sites I just throw up with using EzineArticles for pages.

I could be wrong but I think that this may be the key. Only jump into Google AFTER you've built a real site with real backlinks. We will see.
