    Hello, I'm new to Internet Marketing but ive studied doing it for quite sometime just never did it, however I'm starting small but soon will have some funds to invest however i started with a simple blog. I was wondering if i could get some responce to how I'm doing and if there's more i can do until i get the funds to start Affiliated Marketing. So here's what i've done so far.

    1. Started a blog about marketing, referral programs and affiliated programs.

    2. signed up for different affiliated programs and placed them on the Blog.

    3. Signed up for a few different blog Directories.

    4. Signed up for a few forums that was recommended and of course placed the Blog in the Signature.

    5. I use Adsense and Google Ads as well as Pay Day ads.

    6. Signed up for about 12 Referral programs like paid surveys and multiple tier commission referral programs and placed them on my Blog.

    7 Also signed up for Amazon Associate and placed banners on my Blog.

    Well ive worked endlessly on trying this out but i've still yet to earn a buck.

    I'm hoping its because of it's just to soon. I started the Blog on Nevember 4th. I'm really hoping this will work so ill know the process of when i get my Affiliated WEBSITE up and running in a couple months.

    So does anyone have any other suggestions i can try or am i doing a good or decent job.

    Please let me know, all feed back is much appreciated! Also take a look at my Blog tell me what ya think. Thanks

    One thing I would do is maybe remove your email address. Its inviting spam. Add an opt in box and if you want to be contacted try formspring.com

    Umm...
    1)Its blogspot....who really cares about blogspot... get a dot com.
    2)You have not provided any info in your blog ABOUT making money...Its a list of affiliate programs et al.
    3)You should not be starting a make money blog without actually MAKING money!..sorry but no one in the forums will click your sig if you don't show that you know your stuff.

    My suggestions.

    !)Do some keyword research...set up many blogspot blogs based on long tail keyword...separated over different niches.
    2)Get some backlinks to these blogs....submit articles..post comments.Theres soo much you can do.
    3)After you make a few hundred $$$ start you own make money blog. BUT share your tips...and not mere links to aff sites.

    correction: I just saw a link to your "november" posts....which include some tips and so on. I missed it the first time... you should have a different linking structure to show your posts more clearly from the first page.

    You should give some info for people to better understand how affiliate programs will help them make money.. You probably should limit it to only a few programs by singling out which ones have worked for you..

    You probably should just start a blog from ground up marketing. Including website builders, hosting packages, basic seo tips, ppc tips, and your affiliate programs.. It will be pretty difficult to gather people for just affiliate programs unless you provide detail on what can help them market for the advertisers.. Keep your page user friendly. I would probably swap to a black/green color combination with a grey background.

    Davioli basically covered the rest..

    Thanks for all of your responces all advice will be taken and applied.

    The Blog is doing well so far, really it is... I will get a website and domain soon and take it seriously. The Blog is just a source for noobies to come and actually find REAL FREE programs to generate some cash. Also it gives me a little practice and something constructive to do.
    Ive been studying internet marketing for quite some time but never did anything due to working at a oil refinary 14 hours a day so now that i have time i can maybe take it seriously ya know. You want to make money.... go work at a oil refinary 14 hours a day producing the biggest demand there is, Oil and Gas. Your money problems will go away. LOL So will your life and wife:( lol.
    Thanks again for all your post and advice, to me out of all the forums I've asked for advice here and there, the main thing is Traffic. You can have a Blog or a ugly website and still generate income if you have a thousand folks come to your gig everyday.
    I will have to say i do like Black Hat World more than other's.
    Thanks again....
