The Good Old Get Rich Quick Internet Days Are Back. Here’s The 2014 Guide For Cashing In


There was time not too long ago when cashing in on search engine traffic and the internet in general were open season. Anyone could rank with little effort, and the opportunities to cash in were endless. It seemed like anyone could pick a niche, launch an adsense site with some decent content and pull in valuable traffic. The same went for buying exact match domains, or any content rich site targeting long tail search traffic. It seemed like you could outrank pretty much any site except Zappos for shoes.

There are literally hundreds of shopping comparison sites that simply bought generic traffic, filtered it down to commercial intent traffic, and sold off those clicks. The smaller sites in this industry were spending $25,000 a day in adwords churning a profit on every cent spent.

The Days of Quick Internet Riches Seem Long Gone!

Nowadays, you cant rank with an exact match domain alone. You can’t run arbitrage because you’ll get killed on quality score. You can’t do affiliate arbitrage because there are just too many competitors advertising in search engines. We essentially reached a world where only the best can prosper and the rest of us must find a new line of work, or monetize our traffic beyond the first click.

Still, as much as It seems easy to pine for the old days, the days pre-2005 when you can still snatch up geo domains left and right. The days when You could still run adwords arbitrage sites; You could still rank with a few articles,  and a few link network backlinks. The good ole days.

However, I have news for you folks. No matter what industry you are in, there is still a mountain of opportunity waiting to be snatched up. So much unchartered territory that It is a wonder you have time to read this blog, when you can be mining the gold in them thar hills.
