It has been 5 days since I thought seriously committing into in internet marketing. I only have budget for buying domains and hosting. Nothing more right now! I have read a lot of methods and WSO in the past and recently. I will keep this short so I don't waste too much of your time. The problem I am facing is that right now is with so many methods I don't know which one to act on. When I do make mind on one, there are certain requirement I just feel like I wont fulfill. I have no idea what tools I should be using because the few I have are like 3 years old! I downloaded new and think they should be good enough to rank a domain! I also understood what the terms mean like footprints, tier backlinks 1,2,3 and 4 using BHW search feature. I think I'm not a complete noob but a semi-beginner. Tools which I have:- I have downloaded Microsoft Web Platform their SEOtoolkit [I have hyperlinked to the curious]. I downloaded it because I cannot afford any guru SEO softwares. I hope its does what others do. Downloaded the free link assistance package which does a lot of neat things like rank status checker, find different website related to the niche, keyword and SEO optimization. Although going to bare the consequence of using the free version of it. Yes I know there are others but I feel they might be outdated in the download section on BHW like Market Sumari etc. Going to use Google Analytic to monitor the website [I think it does more, haven't explored it yet] and keyword planner for searching keywords. The tools I'm right now searching for to do the following tasks, article submitting, article spinner [going to probably use free ones online like http://spinbot.com]. I believe from my understanding these are the basic tools I will need to rank my domain other includes backlinking linkbuilidng and few others like footprints. Because ranking domain is all that matter and is the key. Can anyone please list the tools they use for free? No need to tell why you use them because I can google them to figure their purpose. The method which I am really inclined to do is niche site and place click bank offer. No point of placing ad on them because of low traffic. Adsense are only good for authority site because of rich traffic. Is this right? Are these two methods or things almost 90 percent of Imers are doing right now to earn $$$?
