I hate to admit that this is exactly what happened to me. I thought one database was another; and then without even realizing my mistake for about an hour, the database was deleted, and my blog site was down.
Wow. Did that happen?
Yes, it did. I confirmed it.
I didn’t think I would leave a generic title on the database name, and I thought it would be better to have more space and delete the extra database from a website I no longer used. Was it the extra site I no longer used? Nope. Like I said, I confirmed my deletion.
My lights went off, and now I’m panicking, because I now have no idea how to get my blog site back up and running. Research. Google. Search. Look. So much to look at. Finally, I gave in—and being luckily to have a website friend—I asked him to help me out. He was happy to.
Niche marketing can be tons of fun and a great way to make affiliate cach if you have a plan in place to drive traffic.
One of the best ways to do this is to set up an authority site based around a niche of interest.
Of course, this may sound difficult, but its really not. All you have to do is have a plan in place that will break up the process into a series of simple steps. Minimal investment will be required, but its well worth it.

If you are a webmaster, there will inevitably be days where you wake up, check your analytics and immediately notice that something is just not right.
The traffic that you have been enjoying just isn’t there…you should be at “X” number of visits by this point, but traffic is way, way low with respect to where it usually is.
Ahhh, you just experienced the dreaded “SEO Taper”, the point where Google, who had been sending you tons of long-tail traffic, suddenly decided that you content wasn’t so hot after all…and put you in your place…the SERP dungeon.
Don’t Sweat It
It happens to us all, really, we all get hit like this. I know that TheBitBot.Com does occasionally. With over 1000 authors for this blog, many of them accomplished writers, you would expect some consistency, some normalcy, but the truth of the matter is, we all “take it on the chin” occasionally.
For the longest time, I loved to build sites with Adsense. Making money with Adsense was so easy. I would simply purchase a domain name, build a site, add some relevant content, slap some Adsense blocks on there and WHAM! make money with easy clicks.
That being said and done, however, I have been doing some heavy split testing as of late and have ultimately come to the conclusion that Adsense blocks on your site actually damages you business long term.
"What?" You ask. "Adsense damages my business?" You say.
Yep. Sure does…depending on your business model that is. Now, if you’re business model is what mine used to be…building small/lean sites monetized ONLY with Adsense blocks, then there is still some money to be made this way, but make no mistake, this avenue of revenue is drying up, at least for MFA sites. (Yeah, I said "MFA sites".)
