    Hello everybody,

    Recently, it's been a year I am on BHW. Time flies !

    When I registered on BHW, it was about email marketing (RIP) and more specifically How to setup a VPS for mass email sending.
    Nobody was able to help me (snif !), and I had to manage by myself.
    So I decided to write a guide to help people to setup a VPS for bulk email marketing and it had great success !

    Much of my "Thanked" comes from this. I was surprised...
    When the email marketing section will be back, I'll try to update my guide and post.

    One year ago, I didn't even know what a backlink was (ouch !).
    I started from scratch...

    Today, with the help of BHW community, I learned a lot.
    I well ranked many websites.
    I did some money, not enough to live, but IM it became a hobby.

    I have tested and experienced hundreds of methods, softwares, ways to rank, ...
    Sometimes with fails, but errors you're doing today will not be made tomorrow.
    My most stupid mistake was a typo in a domain name... I bought "gaphic-" instead of "graphic-". No comment...

    I will not lie, making enough money online to live has always been in my hopes.
    If I were to summarize the three "best methods" to make money online, I would say : build softwares, setup services, use CPA.
    But wait, one year is so young finally...

    Also BHW helped me professionally.
    I'm graphic designer in Paris (our studio with a partner), I build many websites and before, SEO was done by others if needed.
    Now, it's different !

    It's always pleasant to read success stories, to see that people get success in difficult countries.

    Thank you to community.
    Thank you to mods for tolerance.

    1 year and almost 1.000 posts, BHW inspired me !

    Best :)

    Beny

    It's nice to see you've learned and implemented this much in such a short period.

    In my experience, for web design and internet related services, using your acquired knowledge to bring more visitors to your website(s) and tweaking things until you get the best results will give you a better insight into the world of SEO and IM.
