Hello and Welcome to my IM Journey thread! I am new to Black Hat World and making money online in general and after a couple of days browsing these forums I have noticed a lot of people doing very well using Youtube and PPD so I have decided to start my very own journey! Current Plan: Research how to find good niches. Research how to optimize traffic to my blog and Youtube videos. Find an efficient way to grind out EnhanceViews and U2BViews credits. Current Progress: Created first Landing page using Blogger and added my download link via CleanFiles Created a Youtube video with commentary and added 10,000 views from ViralSocials using the $5 I had sat in my paypal. My first video is a bit of a test and practice at making a landing page and video, I have used a relatively popular niche which I am hoping will get enough attention get some leads. I am always on Skype and if you guys want to talk about Youtube and PPD and help one another just message me and I will add you. I will update as much as possible but because I am just starting I doubt I will be get any leads, however I hope that will change in the near future. If you have read this far I would like to ask you a couple of questions: Should I use a VPN to run EnhanceViews and U2BViews constantly, also do you know of any other legitimate websites such as these, I know about Vagex and I am waiting for them to open the account creation again. How can I optimize traffic, I hear people talking about back linking and SEO but I have no idea how to do any of this, are there any good noob friendly threads out there which could teach me some of the basics. Thank you for reading and I hope to keep you guys updated with my journey! Update: I have just purchased a domain name from GoDaddy using the special offer which is currently running, my plan is to setup a website where I will host all of my offered downloads giving me two ways of gaining traffic (Youtube and an actual dedicated website). Now I just need to start setting up the website!
