    [Mods: I had this post removed from the White Hat Section. If you are going to remove this thread, please at least let me know why. I don't think I have done anything wrong with my post.]

    Guys, I just came to know about this great site while searching how to make money online and I'm so fired up to know so many members here can actually make money off IM which I thought was impossible.

    I'm really desperate to start making some money within the next month or I will be forced to look for a full time job and be bound by a routine life which I do not want. I want to earn decent amount of money every month from IM like some of you guys here and keep my freedom in life.

    I know how to start a wordpress site and setup on a server but I'm totally a NEWBIE when it comes to SEO/SEM and how to monetize from search engines and other affiliate programs. I have been browsing BHW for useful posts the past 10 hours and I really do not know where to begin my quest to earn my first dollar.

    Being able use tools and to monetize IM for free would be the best option but I do not mind having to spend up to US$100.00 MAX to get things started out to buy domain name, server, and tools.

    Could any of you be kind enough to share with me what I should be doing first to get my IM going? I currently do not have any Adsense or affiliate accounts, etc. I'm totally starting this IM as a fresh newbie.

    I'm targeting about US$500 for the first month or so (about US$15/day) and is this doable for the 1st month or so for a newbie like me in SEO/SEM? If yes, what I should be targeting first, etc from this point on? I want it done the whitehat way.

    Thanks.

    First thing you should do is use the search button and read. Then read some more. Maybe read a little more. Once you have a plan in place, try it. If it doesn't work, change it up and try again.

    Title of the thread is misleading as it sounds like you are asking for a method to make instant $ which I think is against the TOS. There is a newbies start here guide somewhere - I will send you the link.

    here is something to make you atleast 500 a month from next month.simple yet effective.

    1.register a domain with "news" in domain name
    2.download any google trend plugin here on bhw and set it up on subdomain or completely different domain.remember to noindex this domain.and set it to scrape every trending article out there
    3.pick up some really hot trending topics/posts. assemble 3-4 articles about the same topic.and rewrite them in 400-600 word post.
    4.scrape some generic pictures from google.use them along post.remember to check copyrights.
    5.write 3-5 articles a day and post this to your news site
    6.dont go overhead with backlinking. do bookmarking regularly...5-10 bookmarks to 5 posts every day from diffrent accounts and do rss on mass using web traffic genius.can be found on forums.submit to all blog sites,,,top directories..etc
    7.after 2 months submit site to google news.download all gnews related wso's over here ..u ll pick up some good tips there.
    this is just outlining.if you are really desperate,you know where to digg in for more precise information.

    Hey there.

    You know people dislike these kinds of threads because they see dozens of them each day. People here are more than willing to help once you HAVE a SPECIFIC question. Pick something you're comfortable with. Doesn't have to be SEO. Then start searching everywhere about it.:)

    IM isn't so difficult as most think of it

    1. Sign up for clickbank, select some product with good epc / gravity
    2. Get an domain with keywords ($9)
    3. Get a 3 month hosting from godaddy ($6-8) per month
    4. With GoDaddy hosting you'll get a free $75 adwords coupon, free facebook coupon
    4. Create ads for your the product and wait till you make your first sale

    Was that so difficult? NO :)

    Where did I learn this? ON BHW

    Now that I told you this, I bet you wouldn't try this because you'll just click on the next thread that promises 2k a day and then the next thread....

    Like this there are tons of methods on BHW that will make you money but if you're expecting someone to give their exact keywords, then you're at the wrong place.

    You have to try out stuff on your own, otherwise NOTHING WILL WORK

    Good Luck

    My advice is that you get the full-time job first. Why? Because you need to eat. Making money online is not as easy as it sounds. Before i started my first website in spring 2009, i read and informed myself about 3-4 years. After i started my website, in which i invested around 300$ and a lot of time making it, for 3-4 months i didn't made a penny. After that period i made around 30$ in my first month. On the course of the next 6 months i made a gross income of around 2200$ and then i sold it for over 5000$. So, the conclusion is that you cannot make money over night, unless you know what you are doing. Get a JOB, and then start a business. That's my advice.

    All the best.

    I have done that here. I spent like 10 hours non-stop looking but I couldn't piece the puzzle where to start for a newbie. There are so many methods like adsense, clickbank, amazon, affiliate programs, etc - like I'm totally lost in the jungle. If I can afford the time, of course I will try them all, but right now, I'm in dire need to make something fast to keep me afloat in my day to day expenses for a little while.

    to keep costs down use blogspot

    go find a good template for that and go make 5 sites about things you know something about

    then go join clickbank / adsense / amazon and a cpa network

    and find offers that match in with your 5 sites.


    Then start adding content to the sites - submit rss - build backlinks and get using twitter - building an account of followers targetted at one of the niches - and then after a few days give it a try and see what happens

    But one thing is certain if you don't act right this minute - you won't be making money in a few days.

    How do I gain money by posting news on a website? Isn't the main point in IM is to write about tangible items to gain a cut in the commission or something if a transaction occurred, right? Please elaborate.

    I think my question is specific enough. I wanted members here to share where and what can be done to help a newbie make US$15 a day for starters.

    Bro, I'm no fool to follow threads like 2k a day, etc because I know money doesn't grow on trees. It has to be effort placed to get it going. I'm not exactly asking for keyword handouts to help me out, but more like what is the best starting point for me to make US$15 a day for a newbie. Is it adsense, clickbank, amazon affiliate program, etc?


    Will check it out now.

    Klaxxon, getting a full time job now will totally limit my time that I can spend on the internet to do IM. I would prefer that I earn some $$ to keep me afloat for now while the time that I gained from not working full-time is used to build up more sites to earn money. Then I can have my freedom in life once the websites mature when each of them earns like $50 bucks a day or something which is possible from what I read here.

    Bro, may I know :

    1. Can you mix clickbank / adsense / amazon and a cpa network ads on a single website or it has to be a single affiliate for a single website site wide?

    2. How do you build a group of followers that are targeted at one niche? How would you know which follower is interested in a particular niche product or service?

    well put. as everyone knows, never put all your eggs in one basket. even if you decide not to get a classic 9-5 i would at the very least set up some kind of writing or logo business or something online, something that you are good at, and offer those services while working on your other IM projects. you need money to survive and get by and if your like 99% of the rest of the newbies out their it could be awhile before some cash starts coming in.

    you will get their eventually , good luck and keep coming to this forum and posting comments for help or trying to help others and u will be suprised what u learn just from that. some people might talk a little shit to u but screw them just learn from it and move on, all these blackhatters are pricks anyway :p jkjkjk guys

    of course you can its your site - but don't put tonnes of ads to turn people off - find good products or CPA that suit your site


    2. How do you build a group of followers that are targeted at one niche? How would you know which follower is interested in a particular niche product or service?


    this is an extremely easy one and Ill still answer it for you - but you should already know this if you expect to make money.

    say you make an MMA site - well go on twitter and find the fighters or MMA news or some MMA magazine and follow their followers etc ... cannot be any easier than that.... to get targetted people


    But like I said you got to start work right this minute or your going nowhere - and won't be making money in a few days.
