    Ok, so while I definitely don't "fall for" those websites like the WSO (and while I definitely download/read almost every article in the downloads section here) I'm extremely confused how people make anything from doing that?

    I mean, I definitely don't ever take the bait and get something off of seeing an ad anywhere, at any time... am I in the minority here? Do people really buy "buy this ebook/video series and become an expert in buying and selling gold!!?!1?" I guess I know the answer otherwise people wouldn't be making things like that but... it just seems "odd" to me for some reason.

    Further-more, I'm confused on how exactly they get traffic since it's almost always nothing but images with the text so it's not like they get indexed for anything? Is it purely from comments on blogs/cnn/youtube saying "Find out how to buy and sell gold making millions! visit us at blah blah"?

    Secondly, don't get me wrong if doing the above is "your business", don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking people who do it, I'm just confused on how people do it and get the traffic to even make it worthwhile.

    isn't that the reason why what we are doing is called IM?

    Seriously, in the actual world, you are also prompted with those stupid overpriced offer, just that you are CONSUMER.
