    Hello very fine ladies and gentlemen,
    I became interested in becoing an IM after getting paid a decent amount to post ads for escorts on Craigslist with the easyad machine in cl heyday. After being a member of that forum I have been motivated to spend crazy hours trying.
    I have been studying this blog for years and recently joined to post a comment. After years of reading and trying to get a game plan together I decided to take someone advice and just jump into it and figure it out as I go.

    Well,I bought a catchy awesome domain name for a news site in my hometown of Memphis and after plucking a few copies of news from major sites I saw that I could possibly get my site shut down for not paying for a subscription. I dont know how much that would cost but I imagine that would be more than I can afford. So I left that site alone thinking that I would get income from somewhere else so that I wont risk tons of time rewriting articles only to make it to the point of getting traffic and being put out of business.

    So I decided to go the IM Guru route to put everything I've learned into a nutshell and I see a good im blueprint that is made into a 6 month course for 7bucks. For the price of his course I felt I could add to it,spin it and make a bunch of posts to a wordpress blog on a website then market the ebook through ejunkie and hopefully at the same time build a following to the website. If you know what I mean. Thats gonna take a ton of work but seem that it can be quite profitable adding affiliate info and all.

    But in the meantime I looked and saw that another project I started a few months back then left it alone had twenty visitors from only 2 posts. I didnt pay for a domain name as this was before I paid for the news site domain thinking the news site would bring me visitors faster and i could make money using google ads program where they place ads on my site and I get paid per click. So this wordpress site is thisinsurancething.wordpress and I had a ehealthinsurance banner on the post I made and got discouraged thinking how are these visitors gonna click on this banner and buy insurance? Why would they?

    Well today I went to that account and saw that free site had 20 visitors from two pages! So I am encouraged like hell because I have some paypercall numbers from cj I think this sort of thing will be worth working hard for!Perhaps I can creat 20 posts a day and use the social bookmarking and really get views! I am imagining using the backlink stategy and everything!

    But now I run into another problem. I see that I cant advertise ish(nothing) on wordpress blogs except one amazon link! But I know I have saw a hundred posts from marketers on this website saying that they use wordpress. So my question is,Whats the catch? Can I not post Affiliate links,or do they just have to be cloaked with pretty link? Do this rule only apply to the .wordpress free blog that is hosted on wordpress? This seems to be the most reasonable thing that it would only apply to my site that is hosted on wordpress. But I know I saw a post here that says if you cant buy a domain then just use wordpress? How can this be done if I am not allowed to advertise anything. If I can only advertise my paypercall number then I think this would be worth the work but I would like to know.

    I guess what I am trying to ask is this. Is im with a wordpress a thing I have to completely pretend Im not doing bycloaking affiliate links and using a forwarding number for the telephone numbers and no email list building or banners?

    Im sorry for the long post but I am looking for any and all suggestions other than the "want fries with that". Maybe somone will tell me to focus on the news site thing and add 100s of page then do google ads and paid ads. For get subscribing just make sure to spin the article so it look unique and never tell where I got the article from. Because I been thing,"How will NYTimes know I got the article from them? Maybe someone will tell me to build the wordpress health insurance site with dozens of pages acting as a insurance agent and get alot of subscribers then tell me a unique way to get emails.

    I am looking for advice and the answer to my wordpress question as it seems nobody else had this question which is odd.

    You can't put affiliate links in a free hosted wordpress.com blog.

    I don't see why you couldn't put them in a wordpress blog that you own, however.

    Thank you. The domain that I own is the news site. I have not tried using affiliates with that. I think I can compete with our main newspaper which charge people to get news from their website.
    Are you familiar with creating news sites? I am browsing the forum now. Should I be ok if I create a blog type news site that repeat the news from other sites in my own words without crediting who I got the news article from. Example:
    my hometown major newspaper title says "Paul Ryan Selected As VP"...Today the Republican nominee selected Ryan Paul etc. My Website title says: "Guess Who Romney Select ? PAUL RYAN! WOW!"... Well. The cat is out the bag folks. Paul Ryan and Joe Biden will have to bark it out in the debates,etc.

    Is this legal? Will I be able to do this even reporting breaking news in the city as they come?

    You can certainly create a great news site using your own hosted WordPress install (plenty of nice magazine type themes). In terms of content, why not do curation (like Huffington Post). Take parts of the article from other sources (credit them with a link to the whole article) and provide your own commentary, opinion, insight, etc.

    Thank you. Thats the type of outline I want...like Huffington Post. Thank you for your input. I saw on NYtimes toc that linking to their website without permission was illegal and that in so many words they take it serious. So I stopped. But from your post and my studies it seems that if I add my own commentary and opinions then its more like a gossip blog and okay and I can even get in Google News. I believe that subscribing to Google News will bring me tons of views even though it seems they dont want me to have long posts with long comments.

    One last question if somebody dont mind answering. How do I rank for the keywords that show up on google adwords keyword tracker for things like "my city newspaper, news my city" etc as obviously this is a news site so my pages will only be news articles,about page,subscription link etc. I was thinking I could save the pics I would use in my news article as "my city news, news in my city"etc and also things such as the tags for my about page and main page but to show up first in google search for these results I will need some other way to create tons of keyword articles or newsletters that will bring people to my page from the keywords,my understanding. How can I do this or how do others do this?
    Perhaps do I need to do articles discussing my news site and 2.0 articles with the keywords linking to my site?
    I hope I make sense?
