it works if you work it
It also works if you ignore it - that's the magic of the internet! I've been bad about my blog and yet, maybe because I did good keyword research and article construction before, or maybe just because I'm lucky, my site picked way the heck up all on its own. I'm getting small but consistent daily amazon and adsense revenue. I'm hopeful that adding more to my site will help it continue to take off, even when I'm busy doing other things.
