I have been doing more linking at Xomba over the past week. I haven't felt much like writing so I haven't done much. I have some ideas but am fairly busy and just haven't taken the time to sit down and put them on the internet. Sometimes getting the motivation to write is difficult for me even if I have significant goals.
So instead, I have been doing more backlinking at Xomba. I decided that if I couldn't write, at least I could be doing something. As a result, my traffic at Xomba this month is already double what it was last month. Unfortunately, this confirms for me that which I had already figured out.
Xomba has not turned out to be the best place for residual income. I really tried to use the site for that purpose. I have 47 articles published on the site which represents the second highest number of articles following HubPages (of course I am excluding this blog). And yet last month, I didn't even earn a dime from Xomba despite a decent number of views.
I have earned some money this month but that is only because I have been so active over the past week. I have placed 7 bookmarks on the site. It is only when I have actually done something that I saw the traffic spike along with a little bit of revenue. I had hoped that the site would turn out to be a decent site for residual income. I do get a few views each day. In 2010, there was never a day when I haven't had any ad impressions. And I have made $42.85 so far this year. But I would liked to have seen in the neighborhood of $10-20 per month which hasn't happened.
So, I will continue to simply post my links on the site and make what money I can. The site may help a little with traffic at my other sites, and I may get a little payment for doing it. But I won't be writing any more articles since I think that writing elsewhere will turn out to be a more productive and lucrative use of my time.
I am just a neophyte learning to make money online. I am excited about the opportunities and hope to share what I am learning.
I am also interested in real assets such as gold and real estate. I have a blog on these topics as well. Be sure to stop by and check out both my blogs.
