    I see that you are using wordpress, that is a good start. Search google and install this plugin for wordpress called "All in one SEO" This will allow you to input meta tags on all your pages helping you rank better in the search engines.

    Another thing I would check out is adding in some CPA offers in your website or maybe even some pay per install. Those seem to be doing really well.

    post all around craigslist, thats a good source of free traffic, just do not get banned. There are plenty of courses for craigslist floating around here.

    Best of luck and welcome to the Blackhatworld!

    I dont have to see your site.

    You need to setup a landing page for your product on that domain and then direct traffic to it. You will find tons of methods on this forum for getting traffic.

    In your mind.
    Sweet domain name. I never liked CB, but i won't count out trying sometime.
    You picked one of the more saturated things to promote (money making online) so get ready to work hard.

    While you're wondering where to start you could apply for adsense too if you haven't done that yet.

    I think you're on to something, I really trust that guy in the pic on the header :D

    Your targeting the make money online niche and you dont even know enough to start promoting your first product?

    Arent you concerned about that?

    How will you write convincing product reviews without reviewing the product yourself or having experience in internet marketing?

    How will find traffic in a saturated niche?

    How will you successfully sell to those who may have more experience and know more about your niche then you?

    You could take action all day in a niche like this with your experience and find yourself no where fast.

    Im all for creating your own learning oppertunities, but if your goal is to help your parents pay for school there are better ways to go about it then trying to tackle the make money online niche.

    Why dont you find a niche that you have some hopes of ranking for in google? Or that has a product a billion other people arent also trying to sell online?

    I think you're more likely to be successful doing that then what your currently up to.

    Look for a mundane niche. Something that a lot of people would not think about for profit, but would think about in their daily life. You want to make money online, so that's the first thing that pops in your head --- that's what pops into everybody's head.

    Have you thought about reviewing your Google search logs? When I have to buy something new, I go to Google to find out about it. Here is one thing I searched for:

    Best time to buy snowblower

    Guess what, that might be a niche. Research if it's worth pursuing, figure out a way to monetize --- Maybe CB has a product related to taking care of your snowblower, or finding the best snowblower. If not, you can create your own --- a manual on shopping for, using, and maintaining your snowblower, perhaps?

    Research the subject matter, write some stuff about snowblowers, get a related domain, and put your content up.

    Now, get backlinks.

    @digitalphantom - I hope you're not too discouraged by whats been said, but yes, I think you've chosen the wrong thing to start off with.

    The whole clickbank thing is doable but you're not making it easy on yourself, I remember back when I was 15 and decided clickbank was for me.

    I had done a small AdWords campaign for my dad and decided I could do it myself for clickbank. I made a few sales and brought in about $200, but I left my campaigns running and the sales stopped coming, eventually almost all profits got sucked up.

    Then I thought SEO was the answer and around about the same time I applied to work at a web design company to do web design, I ended blagging myself in as a bit of a whizkid when it came to SEO, true enough, I knew some cool tricks but was quite niave and unexperienced. It took 2 years working as an SEO to actually start seeing solid results.

    The trouble with clickbank is that it requires an expense either in money (and trust me you'll feel depressed when you make your first loss) or way too much time.

    The easiest money I've ever had was from digitalpoint forums. Write a little 6 page report on some SEO technique you found and convert it to a PDF, then sell. If the ebook is somewhat good you'll probably make $100 to $200 is you sell at about $25 a copy. Although if you're new with no itraders do it for much cheaper and make sure you give away 2 free review copies. Once you have the reviews you'll make a few sales.

    And all for no prior expense. And if it doesn't work, hey what have you really wasted, mb 2 or 3 hours. You can just try again. But as many have said its pretty easy to sell things on digitalpoint and I can vouch for that.

    I agree with Rick. Mudane is the way to go at first. My first successful adsense site was on a mundane topic.

    But let me suggest something I learned from my experience with it.

    Choose something that can potentially have lots of content. I killed myself for weeks trying to write content on my topic. It worked out in the end but I ended up having to add keywords and include some content I didnt want to focus on.
