I've been lurking this forum since early last year. Mainly just reading the latest posts that seemed interesting but never really analyzing any of the information. After launching an online shop with items I was buying wholesale, I was making some side cash but nothing note-worthy. I made an account on this forum and started to really read through different case studies and SEO in general. Both white hat and black hat, on-page and off page. I have a certification in Web Development from a technical school in my area but that didn't cut close to what I learned from this forum and it's members. The past couple of months I decided to dive into Amazon Associates and launched another online shop, this time linking to Amazon products. No need to invest in buying wholesale. As of right now I haven't put any PBN sites into effect, only Web 2.0s and other manual backlinks for diversity. I purchased GSA and have been putting it into action in various projects I'm testing. And that's really the biggest thing in making money from SEO, testing. That's really the only way to learn how sites rank and find out your own method that works for you. Because trust me, no one is going to share their entire strategy to making thousands of dollars a month. Why would they? You're competition. I know $155 isn't much in a month. But knowing that I can make that number go up each month without having to answer to a boss is what really keeps me going. Just wanted to thank everyone who's active in the community for sharing their own tips and tricks.
