Do you HAVE to be a 'socal butterfly' circle jerker on this new SEO era? :(

    It seems like seo is becoming my worst nightmare these days.

    The whole reason i got into seo was the opportunity to remain a social recluse while still make money without having to interact dicrectly with ppl.

    It seems tho that you are being ramrailed into being social now cos 'social media' is all the hype and google is following the trend.

    Even the previously ;blackhat blogs' are telling you to pack up shop and jump on the whitehat bandwagon/circle jerk of guest posting etc.

    So is there still any viable ways to be an anti social creep while still making money online?

    Absolutely. It is harder now than it was just a couple years ago even but it is still quite doable...for now.
    Personally, I see about a 5 year window left for the small operator, no/low budget, organic SEO marketers. 5-10 years from now, google will have almost completely closed that window I believe. This is why I have recently gotten back into the game. I plan to try and and bank as much as possible while it's still doable, and then hopefully invest those proceeds in something more long-term before the gravy train stops altogether.
    Good luck man.

    The users on social media sites are not real people, they are virtual representations of a desired image of a person. Remember this.

    Don't give them power of intimidation that real people might have, and don't worry about them. Study psychology.

    There are a lot of money making methods that don't require you to talk to people, but remember, talking to people on social media is not the same as talking to a real person. On social media represent a brand, not yourself, and as a brand you have no fear because brands don't have emotions. Instead, brands transmit the emotions that they want the people to feel, and you need to behave accordingly as a conveyer of message instead of receptor.

    Transform yourself. If you are timid in real social situations, this is how you can learn to reverse that and live on the other side of the coin and be assertive and confident.

    The question is: Do you want to change or not? If not, you could hire VA or services for your social media. But, if you wanna change, it'll transform your business to the next level. So, decide and move forward! Many ways to make money online :)

    A lot of the so called white hat blogs are simply official search engine PR outlets. Last year none of the "white hats" detected the Hummingbird update, then when Google released a note saying "oh by the way two weeks ago we had an update", all the stupid blogs came out "analyzing" the new update they hadn't even detected.

    So you don't need to jump on the social bandwagon if you don't want to. Don't blindly follow what the white hat blogs say, they're just guessing and their guesses are as good as yours.

    bonus points for using some tissues as well. You never know when an adult scout might get interested in you. LELELEL.

    To OP: maintain your social profiles and side by side focus on SEO as well. Today, if you know how to utilize FB and twitter, SEO is of no use really then.

    Things really are still achievable, you just need to know how to go about it. Take all he wrong steps, and you will be wasting your time. The key is in knowing what you are doing, and it all boils down to a direct experience.

    The usual empty feel good statements from BHW with no useful practical info :)

    No not expecting spoonfeeding but at least some practical food for thought or else waht is the point, its just another warriorforum.

    it makes me thnk you guys are probably as big of losers as me but you just put on a 'brave face' on interwebs :)

    Or maybe people just are not willing to tell you what to do, and why should they, after all who are you to them?

    People tend to not want to help stroppy little teenagers who go around throwing tantrums when they do not get what they want. Don't worry too much about it though, you will understand one day.

    You can still be a complete recluse. All I do for my social requirement is:

    1) Rank a site to first page
    2) Create Twitter, Facebook and G+ accounts that link to money site.
    3) Purchase Fiverr followers on each
    4) Make 1-2 signals per month on each
    5) Use a tool (FCS networker has been doing fine) to submit social signals that coincide with the release of new content.
