    Loopholes can be like finding gold as they did back a few centuries ago. I have found a few loopholes online over the years.

    Back in the mid 2000's one could run some scripts on databases or create stores like Amazon on a $1 domain and be bringing in hundreds per day on commissions for organic traffic. Google soon stopped that when it dominated the search.

    The biggest loophole for me was around 2008 when I was able to promote some online companies in the Internet Industry. I latched onto an old affiliate method without links and I ended up making up to $14,000 per month, some of the biggest days were over $1,000 per day. That lasted for nearly 2 years, I brought 2 homes, 2 long overseas trips and a brand new car along with loads of other things.

    Then I was quite desperate in early 2013 and I started researching places like BHW. I got interested in Youtube and social media.Within days I started creating videos and monetized the link. I was able to get in the top 3 on Google easy for nearly anything that I was targeting. I made enough to pay my debts and live off for the next year + while I traveled. Like the other methods that became useless when Google changed it's algorithm and now it would be hard to get on page 1 anymore without a lot more work,

    Now I'm back to looking for another loophole. Loopholes have paid my debts, kept me alive, brought me assets and vacations.

    Do you live off loopholes or are you more inclined to go for more practical and slow steady growth methods?

    Do you have some ideas for new loophole directions and trends?

    Loopholes are good when you make so much fortunes from them that you don't need the loophole anymore, as long as you only focus on surviving from them instead of making a FORTUNE off them, you'll continue to find yourself in the same boat. Looking for another loophole. I suggest the next one you find, to make so much from it, you never have to ask for another again... Good luck.

    I hear you and know that making quick bucks are good but loopholes dont last forever and then you are in serious trouble. To much income fluctuation for me.

    Those are some very good points. Yes, if I find another loophole I need to milk it for every bit before it dries up. I can't believe I wasted so much time when i discovered the YT loophole early 2013. I should have worked 14 hours a day 7 days a week as I would probably be very well off now. I should have known after the earlier money making methods that worked for me eventually dried up and I could have made much more back then. I just hope I get one more chance and find a good method that works as well. If I do I won't be wasting one day.

    First of all, even if someone knew a "loophole", he wouldn't share it with you, at least not on a public forum. We have all seen what this can cause when things are shared in public. I have been here since 2009 and tried/tested and profited from many of them, but once noobs started spamming them to death, they became useless. Things such as cookie stuffing (oh those days before ebay/amazon banned everyone) viral fb scripts (auto share/like), ranking on Google with pure spam (still works btw just needs more work then before), profiting of affiliate programs with huge viral campaigns, etc...
    Second of all, I think its better to have a long-term income method on the side and focus more on "loopholes" for as long as they are still active and not patched while still maintaining your long-term assets.

    The real loophole you should try to master is the psychology of people's buying habit.

    Once you find the "loophole" that makes them click and buy then you can sell anything ;)
