    there are some bloggers that claim they are making big amount of money via Internet marketing , i know that is possible to make even more than $1m per month by affiliation but when i look at those blogs, its looks like a Flog :D

    here are the example


    Code:
    hxxp://www.shoemoney. com/
    
    Code:
    hxxp://www.jonathanvolk. com

    I dont think so guys.....making a money upto 2k$/month can be digested but earning in millions would not be true in anysence form the affiliation market only....There is something fishy!!!:D

    Shoemoney has a picture of himself with a 134+ thousand dollar Adsense check.

    When I get clicks on certain making-money ads, they are worth like 2 or more dollars a piece, I think he is not lying, he's one of the most famous marketers out there. Also, his site is more like marketing than anything else.

    BrianO: The internet does not have limits. I understand you're new but your jaw would drop at what some of these people make. HOWEVER, do not listen to 99% of the people who tell you what they earn online because the fact is.. most people don't make money online.

    Off Topic: My fucking cable kicked off again.. ok Time Warner.. you are 5 minutes down the road from me.. apparently a phone call does nothing, so maybe a visit will.

    NX_NULL: These people make money by saying .. "Hi.. I make money". Take the show "How I met your mother" for example.. you see people are sheep and they're stupid.. Barney always tells women he meets that he is a different personality and gets them into bed. Now.. people like Shoe and John Chow and etc tell people they make money online and since they have a website, they believe them.

    They told every one they were filthy rich from online and people believed them and came into read their random ramblings.. it's just like Frank Kern.. he sells out products with a price tag of thousands of dollars and do you know why? He is a dog leading his herd of sheep and has them believing every word he says. I guarantee they're making some decent coin now, but nowhere near the $1m/Monthly mark.. no offense but these guys have some pretty poor ways of monetizing their website.

    If you start a religion.. people will follow up.. if you start a weight loss site saying it works.. people will try it.. if you start a blog saying you make money.. people will start buying from you and listening to you.

    that check could be fake
    -he take the real one
    -Scan it into computer
    -Photoshop the image and add some zeros
    -Print it on the paper and take a Pic , add some watermark and has posted it in his blog :D

    and also if a person makes that much money its dangerous to expose it
    because an army of hackers , scammers , blackmailers may attempt to get something from him

    People click on the ads because it caught their eye.

    It's not our job to get people to click on those ads when we're trying to profit off of AdSense.

    AdSense: Your job is to get the ads in front of the traffic. Ad Placement and color/size of the ad is all a factor here and trust me.. the smallest change can greatly effect your CTR whether it be for better or worse. Your one and only job is to make sure these ads are seen.

    AdWords: Your job is to get people to click on these ads. You have no control over this as your just publishing the ads on your blog/website and it's up to the people who paid for those ads to get people to click on them.

    There is no doubt that they are making tons of money. The sad thing is that they are most likely making most of their money by "teaching" others how to make money. I'm not saying that these two do it but it really pisses me off when people only make money in the "make money online" niche.

    Volk is a PPC guy if I remember correctly. I have no problem believing he makes well over $500,000/month, but it's far from profit. That's probably closer to $50k
