    hello Everyone,
    as you can see, I recently joined this forum and the IM industry. Now I've read a lot, but I think the best way to get started is just to get into action.
    My idea to learn from and to start with, is to start White Hat, probably with adsense.
    I decided to get into health (niche) or technology. It is not my intension to make a lot of money out of it, it;s just for learning (and I prefer not to make big losses of money ;)

    What I wanted to ask for, are a few good tips to start a blog or website.

    -Should I start with a blog or buy a domain? In the future my idea is to make blogs/websites on massive scale. Can you also make money out of, for example, a wordp blog?

    -Is it handy/nessecary to use wp software for my blogs?

    -Is it easy to subscribe to a CPA compagny?

    -I am a noob, if it is about scriptlanguage etc.. Is it wise to use a already existent template.

    -What advertisements are good to use? Why Adsense or why Clickbank? Can I use them on the same page?

    Well, that was a long post of questions. Thanks for reading.
    Sorry for my broken english, I hope to get a few answers.
    Greetz, Woerd

    Why don't you go for both (blog and website) and check which one will work better for you? Use as many templates as you can - it'll save you a lot of time...

    i am feeling good today, message me if you want a keyword.tld.

    one big mistake i did in the beginning was to pick a stupid niche, an easy/moderate niche lets you see results in some weeks.

    Set your goal first. May be making $100/month from adsense.

    You select the right niche (health) I encourage any evergreen niche to start with.

    You can start with free blog such as blogger or hubpages or squidoo. Once make money then copy, rinse and repeat.

    I start with blogger, that blog still make me $1000 per month with minimum maintain.

    Good luck.

    to Peetu69, ''I can't send messages yet.'', but thanks.

    I want to add something:
    What are the advantages and disadvantages of a domain and a blog, besides that a blog is free?
    -Is it that a domain quicker gets higher rankings or something?
    -Can you make as much money with a blog as with a own domain, or are there rules to prohibit this (blogger isn't tolerant)

    Could someone point those advantages out for me? Thanks.
