At what point do you wave the white flag?
Update: Pedro (I-Pedro-I) sent me some great links about E.A.T., which is something that Google is looking for now, especially with health and money sites. EAT means Expertise, Authoritativeness and Trust. I'm going to post the links here in case this helps anyone else.
Thank you, Pedro!
New question: how do we show that we're authorities in our niches? I don't know about you, but I haven't personally written any books on the topic on MMO (something they look for) and I don't have a degree in it. Any ideas?
At what point do you evaluate your webiste and say "This clearly isn't working?" and move on?
I know most people say "Just keep going, just keep going!" but there has be a point when it doesn't make sense to keep going anymore?
I've put a lot of time and effort into my site, but traffic is getting worse and worse by the day.
I had a total of 30 people on my site yesterday. Just a couple of Google searches. This is great if you're just starting out. Not so much when you're 11 months in.
I'm just wondering if you have a set point where you decide it's not working and you need to move on to something else?
I would hate to spend even more time and effort on this and be in the same spot a few months from now.
What are your thoughts?
P.S. To anyone new, this is not to discourage you. Thisis a great business. But not everything you do works out perfectly and sometimes you need to adjust.
P.P.S. I don't recommend starting with the make money online niche. :)
