Hey yall! How was the month of May for you? May was super busy for me dealing with end of the school year for my girls, had a family reunion vacation in Destin Florida, blogging, and activities with my girls. I pretty much have been drained!
Here is something that a lot of you didn't know. Two years ago EarningFreeMoney.com was penalized by Google for unnatural link building. How this happened was I was using a website called MyBlogGuest to find guest posts for this blog but the catch was the guest posts I use from that site I had to do-follow all links. Now this is a big no-no with Google and Google caught on about MyBlogGuest unnatural link building tactics and penalized the site and anyone associated with it. My heart dropped and I didn't know what to do because I had so many guest posts from that site it would take me months to clean it all up. I started cleaning up some and also authors from the guest posts I used contacted me directly to have their links removed. I went into my codes of this blog and added the no-follow html code to all links to help save me the headache. I sent in a reconsideration request to Google through Google webmaster tools and they didn't approve me. Pretty much I given up on this blog for two years and let it sit with the penalty.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago, I finally decided to send in another reconsideration request to Google and this time they revoked the penalty! I did no changes for the last two years so I'm glad they decided to lift the penalty anyway. Hopefully this blog will start ranking better again because I've had people who wanted to pay me to include their work from home business on this blog but I didn't feel right taking their money knowing this blog had a penalty. Moral of this story is: NO-FOLLOW PAID and GUEST POST LINKS ALWAYS!!!!!
Last month was good to me again. My income has been holding steady for several months now which I'm glad and I pray it continues. Having passive income is so amazing when you don't have to break your neck trying to make money every single month. If you're not doing affiliate marketing you better start now. It takes awhile, maybe even years to make money with affiliate programs but it is all worth it in the end.
Here are my May earnings:
1. Escalate Network- $877.01
2. ROI Rocket- $2452.90
3. eBook- $3.98
4. MaxBounty- $246.60
5. Google Adsense- $103.48
6. Panthera Network- $4799.84
Grand Total- $8483.81
My income is down a little compared to last month but I'm still pleased.
Now we are in the summer months, kids are out of school and summer travel is here. Pretty much I'm just going to have a lot of posts scheduled weeks in advance and be doing some travel blogging. So my goal for the month of June is step away from my blog at times and enjoy the summer break. I have been overwhelming myself too much and need to have a breather.
Thank you for people like Victoria that sees my vision when it comes to blog posts I need so I can spend more time with my family. She is a lifesaver as well as Emerald, she has partnered with me on my blog too.
I'm telling yall, you can't do blogging all on your own you must invest in it and start hiring help, by doing this I have seen a return on my investment.
I hope you all had a great month of May and cheers to June!
