Wow, SEO Is Time Intensive Sometimes

September 5th, 2009 No comments

Echoed from my other blog… in actuality, I’ve come to the conclusion that most things are time consuming.

I’ve been working on a large array of projects lately, and all seem to take up time. I’m back in school, but that really doesn’t hinder me that much except for the time I spend in class…furthermore, I make good use of the 30 Megabit Down / 7 Megabit up internet connection.

WordPress updates and plugin updates were first on the docket. That took plenty of time across my sites, and then I proceeded to play with some new plugins like CosHTMLCache (which broke RSS on a couple of the sites so I reverted to WP-Super-Cache), and I also have started using twitterposter to promote my posts, which has made a good increase in traffic and AdSense clicks.

After that I have just been tinkering and considering whether I should put up more sites, or try to start working on my all in one blackhat SEO command center in an effort to automate as much as I can from site creation, to promotion, to maintenance and tracking, as well as ad placement and management (probably integrate OpenX in some way for that one….).

All in all, I feel I’m on the upswing, though I still stink at getting many CPA conversions…I just don’t understand what I’m doing wrong. I’d say the techniques I hear of are often so old that they are saturated or dead, so I guess I need to find a place that doesn’t have a bunch of whining n00bs, and enough activity to actually warrant me joining and discussing techniques that work.

In the end, it’s all more of a playground than anything…I still have tons of unused domains to do something with…I’ll never run out of things to do.
