    Hello all,

    Hope you are doing good.

    Recently, one of my close friends approached me to contact Leith for the interview series he started on his blog.

    I am very grateful to @Leith for coming on board.

    Most of you should know him from his informative threads and contribution made here at BHW. After the interview was published today, I read and found a lot of helpful info from his views.

    He shares how he got into SEO and IM, how you can start, his take on BlackHat/WhiteHat SEO, tips to formulate a robust link building strategy and how to learn and improve your SEO knowledge apart from other tips.

    I thought to share this with the community as he rightly mentioned his best source of knowledge as none other than BHW.

    Link to published post: http://www.topearningstrategies.com/interview-with-bhw-seo-expert-leith/

    Read, take inspiration and start hustling.

    I'm reading it right now. It's interesting that both of us started off completing surveys on "get paid to" sites.

    Yeah, definitely. He is not only experienced but has a very nice attitude and is always helpful.

    Most people definitely started with Survery sites and may be freelancing rather than starting something of their own. The experience gained from doing them and learning that it is actually not as easy as it seems to earn online helps a lot. :)

    Hope you enjoy the read.

    "Because I knew that if I could make $10 – then $100, $1K, $10K was more than possible". True that. $10-$50 makes anyone happy but when you start making 1000-5000 then you learn a lot.

    Ha, thanks for the share.

    I don't really do "interviews" as it's not my style but I thought I'd give it a shot just once :)

    There's not a lot of "new" information in my answers as it's more of a "story" I tell about my experiences.. but hope you guys like it.

    I remembered when Leith came to BHW. He was everywhere and he did learn fast. Reading it now.

    I already posted the interview link!

    Welcome. Thought worth sharing!

    Yeah, one of the true and inspiring lines for people starting out.

    Thanks a lot again. From my perspective, its not anymore about information on SEO(abundantly available everywhere which people keep on repeating) but people need inspiration and direction to go down the right path. These experiences are worth reading and learning.

    Cheers! Enjoy the post. :)

    Enjoyed the interview. It's funny how everyone goes through the noob phase. I vaguely remember doing surveys myself for less than a dollar.

    What a great read. Very inspiring. Looked up Leiths post on anchor text ratio as well which is spot on imho.
