    Hey guys I am finally giving up on adsense after a whole year of hard I put into it no results came out. I would wake up find out on how to get my video ranked all this and that . I put in full effort and nothing came out in return. I was wondering if there is still hope out there on making money online because honestly im getting depressed I have no source of income now what so ever. If you could help me I would really appreciate just saying what there is out there to make money. Thanks for your time.

    Do not rape yourself. Take a break, get a job, clean your mind and come back with more money to invest and a positive attitude, you will make it, sooner or later. Sometimes we need to take a step back to move forward

    No if you have tried the only way to make money online "Adsense" and failed, then it is all over.

    Come on, you joined in October, you can't have tried everything to make Adsense work. Analyse where you 'went wrong' - did you get visitors to a site? Did you rank highly? Did you optimise your site?

    If you don't like adsense, try affiliate marketing. You will still need to drive traffic to your website, though, so work out what you did right and wrong and try some new methods.

    No need to be dramatic/ironic to desperate people who are struggling. It's helping nobody, but you to get a couple of thanks.



    Listen to this man. Read everything in BHW, get a job for a couple of months and spend some starting capital for hosting domain and simple outsourcing like logo creation. Then start over while working on your 9-5 day job.

    Good luck

    You can try Adsense exchange groups, just a thought of mine.

    So many ways to make money online and you are giving up on one video + adsense which is not
    a unique method by any means. Takes money to make money and people saying you can get rich online
    starting from no money has been smoking mary jane far too long.

    Truth is you are better off getting a real job for 6 months and doing IM part time until you have saved up
    a couple thousand dollars to really test some methods and invest in the things you need. That is much
    better than half ass making money trying to resale or do freelance jobs barely being able to afford a domain name.

    OP
    IM is all about patience and dedication and then after bucks will start rolling in.
    So just re evaluate your strategy or try another method.
    There are lots of working methods and it seems like you know how to manage a website as you are using adsense for a year so just make a new website in a different niche and get yourself started again.
    Good Luck :) :)

    Why Don't you try Youtube + PPD instead, read the journals they're mostly about YT+PPD.

    Ask yourself:

    (1) What are my passions? What has my sustained interest, apart from the money?
    (2) What are my abilities? What can I do better than most people?
    (3) What are my resources? What do I have access to that most people don't?

    Based on these answers, come up with a plan to SOLVE a problem for people. Examples:

    (1) If you are passionate about X and have the ability to design a website, make the website for learning about X.
    (2) If you are good at programming, make a website+app to automate a business task.
    (3) If you have access to a source of cheap stuff (like an auction), resell it for more.

    Solve a problem and get paid doing it. You don't make money anywhere in a big way unless somebody else is benefiting too. (Unless your plan is to rob a bank, then good luck.)

    Forget about trying to clone some "method" if you don't have the passion, ability, or resources to do so. Try to find something that works for you.

    The idea about getting a job in the meantime isn't all that bad either.

    Yeah but the skill should pay more than $200 dollars a week because a minimum wage job
    pays that much.

    What did you fail at - getting money from adsense or getting traffic to the website? If you could get traffic, then there are a million other ways to monetize it. Personally I don't use adsense at all and just monetize through clickbank and other affiliate platforms

    I won't get into the WHOLE story, but after losing my almost brand new Harley, a girlfriend, my home, and a $200 a day method, I was as low as you could get. I never gave up, probably because I'm old and stubborn, and I'm glad I didn't because I now have more than I ever did, including a new bike. Don't be a quitter, trudge on.

    Lies. I don't believe for a second you put in "full effort". You're lying to yourself.

    A year's worth of effort is 80 hours a week, 52 weeks of the year. That's 4160 hours. That's a massive amount of time and anyone who can really put in maximal effort for a year on 1 topic will be making something decent by that time.

    In that time you should have been able to produce.. Let's see.

    80 hours a week, so in a typical week.

    Let's say it takes you 1 hour to write a 500-600 word article which is a reasonable time.

    30 articles in a week is 30 hours. That right there is a fairly big site. Multiplied over 4 weeks and it's verging on a small authority site.

    So site wise you could have had 12 authority sites or 52 good sized small sites.

    That still leaves you 50 hours a week for your 12 authority sites or 52 small sites.

    Let's say 15 hours a week of reading. Content on bhw, mostly seo, copywriting and various SEO sites/journals.

    You still have 35 hours a week.

    Let's say 20 hours a week for implementing SEO. This can include manually building links and writing articles for tier 1/2.

    You have 15 hours a week left. This time would initially be used for more article writing for backlinks. Writing good content for tier1 and spinnable content for tier2/3.

    After you have traffic that 15 hours a week would be used for split testing and tracking.


    Well, you'll need a couple hours for niche and keyword research. You'd dip into your articles or reading time for that.

    For a newbie your best bet would have been 1 mini-authority site(100-150 articles) and 20+ small sites(20-40 articles). With that under your belt you would have learned an absolute boat load about different niches, SEO, copywriting, split testing and what does and does not work. You would actually be an adsense god if you had an 80 hour week work ethic.

    You see most people think working an 80 hour week means they get up at 8am, put the computer on, browse bhw for an hour, have a shower and make a coffee, browse bhw for another couple of hours reading journals, write an article and put a wp page up, then watch a couple episodes of their favourite tv series, then maybe read some more journals for inspiration, then make some dinner, then back to bhw, then at the end of the day they feel "damn I worked hard. Good job me". They do that for a year then create a thread saying "I give up. I worked so hard but failed".

    You need to work like a top lawyer would work. A god damn machine where you can produce more work in a day than a typical person will do in a week and more than most lazy buggers here will do in a month.

    Do that for a year and you'll be driving around in the sports car of your choice.

    I've personally never known anyone like that on bhw. The only people I know that behave that way are multi millionaires.

    But don't come on here and lie to us and yourself. Get honest. You're a lazy bastard. Tell yourself that and be ok with it. You've failed because you're a lazy bastard, not because you lack the ability to make money. Get honest with yourself and start your next year and this time strive to be a work-horse.






    And this is the kind of advice/mentality that is what leads most on this forum to failure.

    Why would you read everything on bhw? It's one of the most useless things you could ever do. This is what people spend all their time doing then think they've put in maximal effort.

    Pick 1 subject, read a few things on bhw, a few things on specialized blogs, a few books, journals, reports. Things in an area that directly helps you. SEO, copywriting, testing/tracking. Nothing else is needed.

    Yeah and your advice isn't biased at all is it? You're essentially just spamming the forum. Nov 2013 join date, jrvip, name=BlingFiles, selling BlingFiles and writing posts telling people to get into a subject where they could use what you're selling. Hmmmmmmm, yeah. Sounds legit.
