    Since Google banned my top producing site from the SERPs last month, visits and commissions are both down 20% from October. Fucking bullshit. I'm still waiting for a response from my reconsideration request, which supposedly takes "weeks."

    After all said and done, made about $13k net profit. I know what you're going to say but it's a blow to your ego when your profits are growing month after month only to have it go down when you unknowingly "break" Google's webmaster guidelines.

    The good thing is that the only way for me to "fix" this is to examine Analytics for the top keywords and SEO them onto my other sites, which should've been done months ago.

    $2,863 and some cents... down around $100 from last month I think... I thought I was going to do worst this month. I'm blaming Fling for being down this month, cause when they put out promotions ($100 per paid referal) sales seem to stop :ugh: Lucky for them it always happens when they have those promotions :squint:

    743	15	1:49	 0	n/a
    739	16	1:46	 0	n/a
    
    I'm looking for a replacement for them as we speak :mad:

    The good part about this November is that my traffic is starting to go up... around 23.77% up according to Analytics :bowdown: Averaging 7,500 uniques daily on the first days of november, to 12,500 uniques a day average on the last days... :big grin:

    Code:
    November 1, 2008  2.31% (7,434)  
    November 2, 2008  2.71% (8,721)  
    November 3, 2008  3.02% (9,714)  
    
    November 28, 2008  4.20% (13,502)  
    November 29, 2008  3.44% (11,064)  
    November 30, 2008  4.36% (14,021)

    Why don't you get an unlimited bandwidth host like http://www.hostgator.com/

    Or am I not understanding something?

    They have bandwidth limit on their dedicated server plans too and the one that offer 2500GB of bandwdith is $374.00 ... I pay $200 for this one (same specs) and the extra bandwidth I'm using is only going to cost me around $40 ($0.10/GB surchage). I'm looking for a new server though but the unlimited ones I've found with a bit better specs are usually around $400 a month though :(

    Anybody know any good offers on unlimited bandwith? :squeezer: Gonna look on webhostingtalk.com right now :x:

    I recommend using only text ads instead of image ads for adsense. Right now I only get a Petco.com ad, over and over again :ugh: I gave adsense's image ads a try on my car forum and profits dropped a lot... it seems they're worth less or you have less chance of getting the correct ads to get a click...

    You could also try a better position. Right now it seems you want your site to look nice first and get some profit second :dunno: You could try giving those ads a bit more importance imo.

    Check out RazorServers. I have had pretty good luck with them and I think their prices are very reasonable. Plus their bandwidth is quality.

    I pulled about $1,250. Though my revenue is from designing. This month I won't be offering half-rates. Hopefully I don't get flaky clients again. Working on getting my project released finally and generating traffic and press. Then once it starts growing reliably, on to my passion-project. :cool:
