    Well you should first choose what kind of site you want to do. Choose your niche.
    Then you can find in here the proper tools to increase your backlinks...
    I know its hard, I'm in the same position of you but I already have a site and im trying to increase the rank on it.

    Use some of the forums on the site to find the best research tools. I personally like market samurai. Do some research, find your niche, and go. I'm a noob too and I've just gotten a site up.

    Everyone was once a noob. You can learn from everyone here. As you read and put things to practice, you will always succeed. You may also be disappointed along the way. Also, some things may not work out as expected. That is normal. The most important thing is not being discouraged.

    Well I was away for a while I work in the mortgage world so its really hard to have time but I've recently changed my schedule and because of the way the market is I make a lot less money I went from 10k-15k biweekly to barely 2k biweekly so now I'm looking for a new opportunity and I figured I would try to make a cpa I believe its called I know some one that made one about 3 years ago and he is mAking amazing money right now so that's why I figured I could ask people that I know are smart Nd know what they are doing for help

    That's gotta be the all time worst hardluck story I've seen from someone making a "Please Help Me" thread.

    Usually it's the people that are desperate. They've lost their job and they're going to be evicted in the next two weeks or something. The threads still aren't acceptable, but at least those stories make you feel sorry for the people.

    "I'm making 4k per month, I don't really have time to read about the things I need to know, please help me." is definitely a new approach. LOL


    Yep that's a good idea. A lot of people do really well with that. If you look around you'll find that a whole forum on BHW was created to discuss the specific topic of cpa programs. Go look through the threads in that forum and you may learn some methods you can try.

    OK, well that's better then. No sense in learning or following the forum rules if that's all you want. :rolleyes:

    Actually the more I think about it, you may actually be on to something. Maybe it does make more sense to find some people that could just explain everything so that you can skip a lot of trial an error on your part. Maybe if somehow we could get a whole lot of people already experienced in the topic to tell us what to do. It really would save a lot of time and trouble.

    Maybe if there was someplace in which they could post little bits of advice about things they've learned themselves. Some of the ones that have done even better might be able to explain complete methods. They could post guides and tutorials explaining to people how to do these things. That would really be a good idea, and maybe even give it a catchy name too. I know we could call it "BlackHatWorld.com".

    Oh wait.... It's already been done. :cool2:

    Well that really makes it a lot easier for you. Now instead of asking for people to tell you how to do it, You can just go read a lot of threads and posts people have already made explaining those things.


    There's a difference between being a newbie and a noob.

    No one knows anything to start out. Everyone begins as a newbie, but most people understand that they need to do their research to learn a new field. Most newbies find a forum like this and realize what a time saver it is to fast track that learning curve. They'll still ask questions of course, we all do. They'll usually be specific questions asking for clarification on specific topics and methods they've been reading about.


    A noob on the other hand is the guy that even with a forum full of information, still asks the general questions that have answers all over the forum. The noobs are the small percent that even with all that information available will still post threads like this one. :(


    If you're in the mortgage industry then you should understand that it takes work to learn a new field. I'm sure you had to do a lot of reading to learn what was necessary to succeed in the mortage industry. Why would you expect this field to be any different?


    edit-
    There's lot's of different types of sites you can make. Lots of different ways of promoting. There really isn't a specific answer to the question you're asking. As far as how to make a website? Well you can either search for html tutorials and build a static page from scratch, or search for tutorials on setting up a wordpress site if you'd rather not learn how to code anything.

    As far as learning how to promote CPA offers? Well just do as a suggested above and go look through the CPA subsection of the Affiliate Marketing forum. That actually does answer you're question somewhat and narrows down a starting point for you. Good luck.

    You told that you are making 2k biweekly, so you have the money to afford paying.

    Why don't you hire a professional from the "Services for Sale" area (if you are that interested in making money quick), instead of being greedy and wanking for help at the threads?

    IM is a very wide area. You can choose a variety of sites from e-whoring to selling a software that you create. So this is the place for you. Instead of asking with this dumb help threads, follow the forum, read the good threads and in little time you will find your own way.

    This is exactly what I was thinking when I started reading :rolleyes:

    GreyWolf gave you some awesome advice. As with any journey, it's a good idea to start out knowing a general direction that you want to go in. You seem very flippant regarding your choice, so I would say to research it quite a bit through the CPA forum before you actually start promoting. CPA is a great way to make money fairly quickly, but a lot of people don't try it for their first IM journey.

    My advice is to: read, assimilate, practice, test, perfect.

    A lot of people get information overload on a forum like this and never actually do anything. Research is awesome--it helps us know what to avoid and helps us understand what to expect--it doesn't, however, bring in the money. To do that, you actually have to take what you've learned and apply it in the real world. Sometimes you'll fail, but the first time you succeed... you'll be hooked for life.

    How to start? :eek:
    Find your niche,learn to research for your key words.As you have been in mortgage industry,you could aproach that side,even if is very saturated.But you could try focus on your area.....something "like mortgage in Nort Pole",if you live in that area.
    Get yourself hosting,set up WP,find a nice template for it,do not go for shared one,cracked,etc,as most of them have viruses,etc,get one from the official WP site.Are a lot of them free.
    Find around here which are the most useful WP plugin,install them on your blog,chose the wright settings for them,put your site up and start posting articles.2-3 per week is ok.
    As you are just starting,write your own articles,from your experience on that particular niche.You know what people want,what they want to hear.
    After you have put your site online,get tools to monitor that site,the keywords you are targeting,visitors to site,how they came to your site,check your site seo,learn about h1,h2,h3 tags,etc.
    Optimize your site for best user/visitor experience and you are ready to go.
    Now is time to work on your backlinks.For this you need tools.....the good one are expensive,with monthly subscription.But you can find good tools cracked,some on this forum,some on others.
    As you are just starting,you need al least 6 months to get things wright.
    Leaving the money part aside,is quite f***ing great to see your keyword on first page of big G***le.
    When you have reach that,some money will start to get in your bank.
    I have not mention nothing about adsense until now,for a good reason.
    Put adsense on your site,only after you have clear all errors that any noob do.
    That way,you dont get banned from adsense,and your account should be accepted much quicker,as you already have a decent site.
    For the start,go for chikita,etc are other options out there,but your main purpose,at this point,is not to make money,you just need to learn how to create a site,get good rankings,get backlinks,etc.
    I have not mention any tools here,just because the tools i use,might not suite you.But at least you know what they need to do,and you can start look for them.
    On the other side,nobody will give you full info.You just need to search,read,search again,read again.
    Most of your questions,are already answered here,or on ther forums with same thematic.
    I have been working hard in the last 2 years to learn,and now the results start to show.
    Before asking a question,search,here or on big G,if nothing came up,then,post here,but im sure that the answer is already here,maybe just on a different way.
    This is a very basic way to start,does not cover all the aspect of the problem,but is a good start.
    As an example,i m out working on my regular job,which pays my bills,and sneak in here to look for info,to steal experience,to learn and apply later on.Im not here to look for something,just to see what is around.I usualy came here for 2-3 times a day,to check out what is new around,read,learn and back to work.I do this with 2-3 forums,on a daily basis.
    Good luck!
    PS:Quality pays back,quantity not anymore.................

    The reason why I was making so much money just so you know is because I was working about 70 hours a week with barely any rest. But that's besides the point thx for all the good advice ill make sure to go to everything that was said

    You are in the right place. You can learn quite a bit right here, and you get to ask quesitons too. How cool is that? Can't do that with a book/ebook! One word of advice... pick what you want to do, TAKE ACTION, and stay with it... it is very easy to get distracted with all the information on here (and the Internet). Good luck!

    LOL, you don't need to explain the difficulties in downsizing.

    When the mortgage and real estate industry took a dive I had a lot invested in real estate. I went from a lifestyle higher than what you've described to lower than what you're even close to yet. Believe me I understand the concept.

    The world is in the worst recession since the Great Depression. If it hadn't been for a lot of unpopular decisions made by many of the worlds leaders we probably would have actually had a true depression rivaling the Great Depression.

    Everyone has there own hard luck stories. I'm sure yours seems really bad to you right now, but from the description you gave there's still many options for you. It's not the kind of story you need to go around telling people to get them to help you. Too many people have been through much worse. And even more people have never even achieved what you're complaining about having to start living.

    Like I said that was the worst hard luck story I've ever read in someones "please help me" thread.
