    There's a saying about the gold rush, the people who were selling the tools to the miners were making the money, not the miners.

    I feel like, at least in regards to niche finding, that we're all mining for gold that's already been mined! It's the tool makers that are making the money off of the miners.

    I'm venting a little, I feel like every time I find a lucrative niche with nice volume and CPC, there at least 1 or 2 bastards with EMD clearly targeting it on the first page already.

    I'm in need of a little inspiration... I'm about to buy AMR and SB to see if this'll give me better results... giving more money to the tool makers. I hope there's still gold to be mined :(

    you will definitely find scrapebox useful and it is way under priced but can't say the same for AMR.

    if you are new to this game, start small and learn it before you try the bigger niches

    niches aren't the only way to make a living you should do some really heavy research there are tons of ways to make money online and there's no way they're all taken.

    Completely agree.

    Wacka Wacka.. I just started promoting a ebook today via youtube and facebook.. I am a complete noob.. but the main thing I do know is with a lot of research and starting small and taking ones time to finesse all areas of IM, CPA etc will pay off.. results will not come withing just 1 day.. be patient put some good songs on.. research be positive, read through threads.. drink some energy drinks and JUMP! lol..

    Don't give up bro.. think how I feel.. I am a noob but I am not going to be pesimistic.. I just know I'll have to learn to get the money..

    hope my post gave you some positive vibe or energy..

    good luck bro. ;)

    Try promoting new offers and not offers that have been out a while. Build a blOG around the new product and rank fast. The product may be new but you can bank off the search traffic Emailers and Paid Placement guys sent to Big G. I personally just finished a blog this morning around a new Skin Care offer and already ranked on first page, the offer is brand new less then 24 hrs old and Ive gotten clicks already.

    There are many ways to make money online. as was stated before just keep learning, keep moving forward and just don't give up. I spent 6 months reading everything I could before taking actions, and finally I'm starting to see a little money coming in. Start small, do your research.

    SEO is not the only way to make money online. Check out the facebook, youtube and torrent section here and you are good to go...

    I've just read pofecker post about his IM career, you should read it too to find some inspiration. Many people who are making good money now started without anything, even without internet connection.
    So you should consider yourself lucky. I do have moments that I want to give up too. In such situation, I stand up, walk around to get some fresh air and think about my unfulfilled goals. After that I gain back the motivation and continue what I'm doing.
    btw, the thread I mentioned is here:

    I do the same lol.. sometimes one just needs fresh air or a good drink and some relax time.. then come back to the old computer/laptop and have another go and learn and read.. the beginning is always tough.. but once you get the hang of making money online.. it's one of the easiest lifestyles going.. never back down!. ;)

    Thanks guys, very supportive.

    I really appreciate the pep talk, I'm doing more keyword research as we speak. Got some interesting ideas.

    Learn to enjoy a challenge,to use what you learn.I love blackhat,because it works.
    Nothing else gets results so quick,nothing will.

    it's a bit off blaming tools and saying they make the money,without them blackhat wouldn't exist would it....

    I buy as many as I can,everyone,no exception,has benefited me.
    You see there is alot more than just pointing and squirting bh tools.

    Use cleverly,they are gold.

    I have ranked national sites in 3 months against very high PR competition(BBC) in the top 3.All blackhat methods used no authority links.

    You're about to buy to 2 fantastic tools,AMR,scrapebox,must haves in BH.

    May I suggest a 3rd,ho hands seo.This tool will do the work itself.Now depending if the site you're promoting is yours or a clients you do need to adjust the settings.
    However this tool will just keep on linking,it links according to your keywords.

    The whois alone is quite powerful and a very fast way to get your site noticed by google.

    Please don't just give up,you learn by adapting.
    Yes an EMD is very powerful but not unbeatable,I f*cking love a challenge against an EMD,it tests me and I love it.

    Read these forums inside out,I did and I have learnt so much as to be in a position to help some people now.

    It's all here ....................

    BTB! I've been reading up on your stuff and services, I appreciate you responding to my thread. I suppose I should be proud that I actually took action, even though it didn't get me the results I wanted.

    I appreciate your encouragement.


    Thanks man, I really needed to hear that. I was getting really frustrated and started thinking like a poor person, blaming other people for my problems.

    I understand your frustration bud...

    As my first project I am using a Keyword(exact match).CA domain.

    Competition is low, Global monthly searches 4400 and local only 390, CPC is $10.85. When I google the keyword, I don't see any ads. High CPC and no ads, is that good or bad? Anyone know?

    When I started, I was page 40+ on google, after about a week of link building and tiny wee bit more content on the site, I am in page #2, spot #17 (in Canada).

    I am not sure if being on the first page is gonna make me any money, but reading more as I type...

    I guess, keep at it :)
