I'm far from self righteous. I was actually trying to help. It appears that some people here may have either taken me the wrong way or are thin skinned due to some financial strain.
Maybe I didn't explain myself properly but my point was that people are going to experience highs and lows and you have to keep steaming forward despite what your current status in the serps are. Ranking well? Keep working hard! Taking a back seat in the seprs, keep wroking hard! There is a ton of competition out there in every industry and it's only going to increase with time.
Believe me when I say that I wasn't tooting my horn. I have nothing to gain from that.
