I first posted my plan here:
...and 3 months later marketleap is showing me as 15,000 backlinks (total) and especially lately is growing at and unbelievable pace.
The idea is that I offer a free service and in return people provide backlinks and I serve Adsense too. I've got about 900 sites using the service and add 30 to 40 new ones per day.
I expect to be PR6 on the next update, and could be PR7 if things break my way. I've made the top 100k on Alexa. The kicker is that if my website contained nothing but a picture of my dog's butt, it would still have the same link popularity. It's just the way the plan was setup.
My website is garbage. No SEO at all and just a collection of ramblings really. Now I want to redesign it and start going after some text link ad bucks. But that's the part I'm ignorant about ;-)
* What should I make the site relevant to? I mean what type of biz is most likely to buy text links and pay good money? (I can make the site about anything I want)
* STRAIGHT ANSWER NEEDED: do people still make good money selling PR, and what kind of future is in it? I do know better than to blatantly sell PR ;-) I also know the days of CRAZY money to pass PR are over.
I have like a million more questions, but want to keep it simple for now ;-) I'm a complete n00b, so any guidance would help.
