Here are this month’s stats for one of my bitty affiliate sites:
Unknown search engines 6
Ask Jeeves 6
MetaCrawler (Metamoteur) 1
No, that’s not a typo. Google has sent me one visitor. And no the site is not banned or grey barred.
One thing I promised myself when I started online was not to drive myself crazy with this affiliate and traffic stuff. I mean if I stop laughing at my dazzling non-seo-abilities and stop having fun with this and stress out over everything I’m not that great at – it’s time to pack up, unplug and go home.
Don’t get me wrong – I’m totally serious about making money online. But I also know there is more than one way to skin a cat. Google is not required to make a buck or two online.
And while I’m figuring all this stuff out – MSN and Yahoo are cooperating with me a bit better than Google. I appreciate that ;).
Sidenote: Yes I lmao every time Google coughs up a scraper (or two or three) in its serps rather than my affiliate sites. Nothing but quality and class. Ah well. At least the scrapers send me traffic :lol:.
