What would I do differently? That’s a very good question!
The first thing that popped into my mind was “I wouldn’t get my website via Google”. I would also make sure to read the entire TOS of any program I join.
When I launched my first press release website I purchased my domain and hosting via Google for only $10 a year. A year later and about 3,000 posts, Google deleted my website because it labeled it as spam. They wouldn’t tell me what prompted it, but I believe it was too many out-going links and the fact that a lot of my clients submitted their releases to other websites so there was a duplicate content issue.
I spent a year building that website and my AdSense revenue was steadily increasing. Then one day…..nada. I miss my AdSense income
