From $70k to $0…

BackOnTargetIn March of 2012, my friend and I launched wsotesters.com. We spent days researching how to build and rank microniche websites in Google. After a few months we had it down to a science. We were seeing “residual income” and our online real estate value was pushing $70k. And then it hit… Google released a change to their algorythm called the EMD update. We had survived the penguin and panda updates, but this one was different. In the course of one night, 90% of our sites lost their ranking and their monthly income. Technically we didn’t drop all the way to $0, but it sure felt like it! In the wake of the rubble, we were forced to look for another source of income. We searched, but ultimately we were not able to find any online income sources that could sustain our cost of living.

Before I go further, I’d like to offer an apology to any of our old followers who have been waiting for an update from me. I should have posted earlier, but with bills coming, I put 100% of my focus into other things and I completely neglected this site and it’s followers. I am very very sorry about that…
