    I've been reading A LOT of forums here, and I've noticed that if a topic includes a dollar sign in it's name its a method that is outdated or total bull****.

    Whats the fastest way to determine such a thing?

    I usually skip to the last page to see people say "This doesn't work anymore or this gets you banned here ect"

    Trial and Error.

    Just because a method is old or has negative posts on the last page, it doesn't mean it's not profitable. How do you know those negative posts aren't from people who are too lazy to try the method? This happens a lot, some users never take action so instead they'd rather just post crap about how the method doesn't work.

    If you listened to all the people who said this does not work anymore, you would have quit years ago, or never started. Just this month I have been informed off the "Gurus" several hundred times that SEO is dead, I have heard that affiliate marketing id dead, and apparently no one makes money in IM, they are just all bullshitters. Like said above, it is trial and error. Some people can get things to work, and some people simply are not cut out for IM and find it impossible to do anything.

    a year or so ago my business partner suggested that we try a new area. i began immediately (keywords, web pages, new domain, promotions) while he did nothing other than hire someone to make a wordpress blog for him.

    last month he told me the field he originally suggested was a total waste of time and that he was moving on to other more profitable areas.

    i didn't bother telling him that i had just closed a deal in the area that he had suggested and was paid several thousand dollars for my efforts. all because i stuck with it and put in some real effort.

    if you were to ask him today about that sales area, he will quickly tell you that it is complete b.s.

    make of this story what you will...

    So what do you want to suggest in the end? From my point you can learn even from bullshit. I'm reading all these "crappy" offers and I learn how NOT DO TO IT. Is just a perspective and a way of expressing the feelings if there is the "$" inside of the topic thread.
    If you just ignore it because of that you should be ignorant - sorry mate but you should know that in life you have to look all over to know from what to protect yourself

    the quickest ways are:

    1. the seller talks more about money than the work needed to get money.

    2. pictures of people holding fistfuls of cash.

    3. glossy pictures of rich living (yachts, mansions, cars).

    4. extremely looong sales copy (they are talking you into something).

    5. fake empathy with reader ie, "i was like you. buying worthless ebooks, but this program really works!"

    6. article titles that sound profound,
    http://www.webpagesthatsuck.com/how-to-write-bullshit-article-titles-that-sound-profound.html

    7. rags-to-riches headlines:
    "how a drunken pedophile finally cracked the wealth code in prison!"
    "$10-an-hour good-time girl learned how to make money online!"

    8. little mention of what you'll actually be doing.
