    Dear BlackHat members,

    I am writing to receive an advice regarding an investment for an SEO service to be purchased.

    At the current moment, I am studying to complete a certification and hopefully land a position as Network Engineer. Unfortunately, last year, I tried to find a place close to my girlfriend and I ended up spending most of my savings. That loss became a barrier since I cannot afford to lose any more money (I am already funding my studies and covering all my expenses).

    I wanted to ask a few vendors on the site to help me build a 25-30 blogs to be used for AdSense in order to generate an income which I can use to cover all future expenses (flying for interviews, rent etc) to manage the transition to work.

    I spoke with three of the vendors that post on the site and, to be honest, my perception was not that positive regarding these people. I saw few members of BlackHat that made even 5K per month, I actually need 6000$ in total to get me of out shit, but I do not want to ask help to parents. Lend me money is embarrassing and is also stressing for them. Here in Europe, the situation is not rosy at all. Most of you are from the US, but here it's stagnation and I got to move in different cities on my own and that makes the whole story a bit more complicated.

    I do not think it's correct to mention the vendors, but I am wondering if you think it's worth to spend this amount of money:


    • GSA Ranker Licence (99$)
    • Captcha Breaker (I am not sure which to buy) $147 the one offered by GSA's team.
    • Indexing service. Linklicious or GSA Indexer. The first is 20$ per month, the second 20$ one time payment.
    • Proxies (not sure which service)
    • 30 domains .com (9.99$ x 30) 299.7$. I have not seen any offer that allows the same user to register more than one domain.
    • Hosting service that allows multiple sites on one account. GreenGeeks offers 3.96$ per month
    • For the SEO, the offer ranges from 630$ up to 870$ to get 25 -30 sites up and running.

    In total, we get between 1200$ up to 1500$ as an overall investment. The thing is that for this amount of money I would not want to get screwed and lose even more money with no result.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind Regards.

    People usually lose money in these situations honestly.
    If you need money now, this is not the way to go.

    I agree with the guy above.

    Save your money, get a part time job and save up.

    Do small tests and buy things slowly.

    Also, instead of creating 25+ sites, just create 1 super awesome site.

    Creating 30 sites at one time on the same model can make you rich, but you have 90% of screwing those 30 sites because of your lack of experience.

    As said above, start with one, see how it works, the revenues you can get, then scale up.

    Hei gents, thank you for answering. I much appreciate your comments. It's a stressing period because I have to focus on passing those last two exams, but at the same time, after that rather than making money I will have to spend a lot of to re-locate me close to work.

    I hope to get me up soon and start feeling a little bit more relaxed :)

    Many thanks again.

    Firstly, you need to factor in different hosting providers. Secondly, I wouldn't start out banging 30 sites right off the bat. Especially, if you're doing this because you need to make money back. You won't see any of that money back for at least 3-4 months doing that. There are many methods here in which you can invest ~$300 and see a return within 1-3 months easy and have it become recurring. Consider this:
    Several Domains
    Multiple hosting providers
    Supplier of content (buy large amount of articles)
    eCommerce (alibaba/aliexpress drop shipping)

    That should be around ~$180. You cn make the decision of how you should handle social media and SEO, which would garner you traffic & sales.

    Don't invest your last dollar into an online method. Put most of that money back and make money offline. Invest some money and time on the side as you build and test your online business.

    All SEO sounds good, money in ... 10x money out. It sounds like you might have been listening to some guru trying to sell a product that he used to make 10,000 /month.

    Not that I've had that much experience, but it simply doesn't work that way. It takes time and you have to learn first, otherwise you are simply throwing money away.

    Investing money online when you are not financially stable is not the best idea. Just like everyone said above, try working offline, save some money and then go into the online world, test things out and see how it goes. What you're trying to do, if it works and you won't get screwed then the ROI will take some time
