If you have been using advertising for over 2 years, how much is revenue down today compared to last year, if any.
If you run both advertising AND affiliate sales, which has turned to be more profitable?
like all sales online / offline mine are down around 25% but they will bounce back when punters start spending again, the trick when every your running your own business is to make sure when things are going well you save some of the cash
>>If you have been using advertising for over 2 years, how much is revenue down today compared to last year, if any.
We passed last year's net income value back in August

We only run advertising.
Down appx 30%. The drop in advertising revenue accounts for most of this. Affiliate sales are down but only slightly.
Advertising at first. These days it's affiliate sales.
I think some of the things Im missing can be boiled down to SEO issues
For advertising I think BSA is only accepting bigger sites, so I am not sure how or where to get my advertisers from. Any tips?
I think there are a lot of people like us around Bitshift. Look forward to hearing more tips.
1. Your Title tag is not the first tag in the <HEAD> area of your page! this is confusing for search engines
2. Your Title tag has stop words! (and, or, to, etc.) The less the better
3. The META Description tag is missing! This gets used for your page description by search engines. It should be keyword rich!
4. Body area:
None of your keywords are in bold
Your keyword is not present at the end of your page! Get your main keyword in last 50 words (not sure what keywords you are aiming for of course)
5. Text in links including ALTs
Your keyword rarely appears in the ALT / TITLE attributes of text and graphical links on this page! Aim to get it in over 6 times.
6. ALT image attributes
Your keyword is not present in the first 3 ALT image attributes on your page. Make sure you name your images with your keywords, not just a random file name.
Well that is most of what I found for now. Hope this helps. I know that changing these things make a difference, but with all SEO, can take a while before you notice the change.
