Over the last few months I've seen hundreds of SEO marketers lose entire income streams overnight. And it wasn't very long ago that I was in the same boat. I was doing SEO just like everyone else, following what the gurus were saying, and sitting pretty on a few high ranking sites. But Then Everything Changed.
Out of nowhere, my websites all TANKED. Every single one.
Of course I later found out that it was thanks to a little thing called the Google Panda. I found out that it had actually affected thousands of websites, and I wasn't the only one who got killed.
My Income Dropped to Almost $0
As you might imagine, I got pretty freaked out. What was I supposed to do now? I had a family to support. Plus I was saving up for a sweet vacation, as this had been my best year to date
Then it hit me.
I wasn't building a solid business!
Despite the fact that dozens of marketers had told me not to solely focus on SEO, I did it anyways. I figured that I was doing okay, why should I listen to them?
I mean, they were just jealous, right?.
So after getting killed in the SERPs, I finally learned my lesson. I decided to build a real, brandable business from that point on. No longer would all of my traffic come from SEO, but from other sources as well.
And you know what happened? I developed a system of building websites that just cannotÂ fail. Not only does it help me rock in the SEO world, but get tons of traffic from other sources as well.
