Hey there, wheel:
Thanks for the info and inspiration (again).
I do have to point out one thing though:
Your description of "success' might not be the same as someone elses description.
Someone more entrepreneurial than you or I might say that your methods leave a lot of money on the table. They might prefer a slash-and-burn method; after all, domains are cheap. Hosting is cheap. Links are cheap. content is cheap.
mahalo or suite101 might find it more profitable to get as much money as they can, and when they get slammed by google, reinvent themselves. It will be costly to do so, but if they made enough money during the good times, it could still be a very effective business model.
I am not defending their actions. And I applaud your methods (which I am trying to incorporate into my own strategies). It's just that the big money people in this game would look at the money you DIDN'T make as being LOST revenue.
Thanks again and keep the good stuff coming.
