    The title of the thread says all. Is earning money online as easy as setting up a website selling a product and ranking it number one on related keywords enough to earn money online?

    For some yes and others no.
    Don't go looking for the easy money, look to do things that you are passionate about or enjoy.

    Depends on the product and the site and other factors. You could temporarily rank some poor quality site with awful copy and not convert. It's about ranking, converting and banking.

    No, that's one type of traffic, that's only the beginning, If I had to summarize:

    -Research
    -Assess
    -Make a plan for content delivery & monetization of traffic and required investment
    -Build website + create content and backend
    -Get traffic: Ranking, Paid, JV, whatever.
    -Track Data
    -Optimize and test, try other types of data and monetization
    -Scale, ditch, hold or flip.

    Very very very skeletal outline. But more like it. The above can take anywhere from a month to a 1year+ depending on size, competition, revenue, market.

    Cheers

    Great psychology and advertising are only a part of success. You will then need a solid quality product or service to gain repeat sales and customers.

    Of course it isn't: if it was easy, everyone would be doing it.

    but what I can tell you is that there is $h1tloads of money to be made on line, but you need perseverance and dedication to earn it.

    Anytime, it's just a matter of experience and research, the ideas come, and eventually you start breaking it down and seeing where you can test, find new ways to innovate, etc. etc. It's not just about having the answers, it's about asking better and better questions overtime. It's the mother of all innovation.

    but to get to the part of ranking isn't as easy as 123 :), plus you need to know how to run a business and invest time and money into it.

    Business 101 has always been Getting the product to the customer.

    So although in theory "ranking and banking" is correct. We all know that there a ton of steps inbetween to get from A-B as pointed out very well by Garcian above.

    Ranking sites is indeed only one aspect of banking in IM, as its weakness it is not as regular as often touted due to Google updates and other factors. Other parts of the picture involve submitting your money urls to targeted email lists, selling your SEO service to others, wholesaling or acting as middle man to resell products and services, and so on. Those opportunities each involve more immediate or direct control over the making of money than site creation/promotion does, even though ranking sites offer more passive earnings over the long run.

    If all you think there is to IM is "ranking and banking", well you will basically be yanking because that's like saying brain surgery is open skull and remove tumor.
