@Planet13 Yes, that is always something that is at the forefront of our minds. There are really not many options around this except to be very strict on outbound links. Currently we only allow writers to post articles if they only link to their personal blogs, and then only when their personal blogs are not shills for affiliate marketing. We have thousands of older articles with more questionable outbound links, but as long as I look at this as a hobby I'm happy to be very restrictive on who can publish articles on my site. It makes it a lot more fun for me and my wife to manage in our spare time.
@Dinkar Lots of other investments, almost all of them internet or app related, and they haven't begun to pay off yet.
Thanks @BillyS. You're right. Most of those comments come from 'junior members' so I'm not offended.
I actually feel pretty successful now. My website income may be cut by 60%, but that's far more than most people will ever accomplish. When I get my kids through college I'll reconsider if I need to keep working for 'the man'.
