    When I first started in this business there were a lot of misnomers and there was a lot of information to assimilate. The fact is the reason I am making this post is because if you can make $1 of profit per day, everyday, I have just shown you the key to making a million. No, this doesn't come easily and you may not want to hear that it make take many months to even start to see a profit. There is a way to see a profit, however.

    This really doesn't fall much into the category of black hat, but the traffic methods could be considered that. It's simple, really, you build a blog, center around a certain niche, then go to niche related forums and advertise your blog in your signature. About 10 forums you post regularly to should net you $1 a day. Woo Hoo! The grand total for this process will be about a month. Of course you can speed this up dramatically by outsourcing some work, but be careful who you contract with. There are many good people to work with here. The black hat way to get traffic is to use craigslist and an auto-responder. Again, advertise on Craigslist in a niche related to your blog and auto-respond with a link to your blog. However, when I say advertise, I do not mean post.

    It works like this: let's say a guy is selling a car, I e-mail him saying that I saw his ad and I was interested in advertising his car. I ask him to take a look at my auto related blog and see if it might be of some use to him. Why am I advertising his car for free? Because, if he allows me to, I can cross post the link from Craigslist meaning that I ask him to use my blog for a full description of his car that will be flag-proof.

    The dude will look at my blog, and find that there is no spam and it is reputable and I will simply tell him to link the page I build for him to his ad on Craigslist. Now, I have an anchor text, a backlink to my blog from Craigslist. Since the backlink only leads to a description of a car as promised (with a little adsense and maybe an auto insurance cpa thrown in) it is unlikely to be flagged. So you say this is a lot of trouble to build backlinks and traffic. Yes it is. But if this guy sells his car, he's going to keep linking to my blog and even if he doesn't, I still have the link popping up on that search from Craigslist through Google, on his ad. Say he sells the car, he may not tell me. I e-mail him and ask if he sold the car, or if there are any updates I could make to help his ad, then I ask him if there is anything else he would like me to post. It is at this point I hit him with the fact that I have just built him his own personal sales page on my viral blog for free. The only thing I need him to do is link to my blog every time he posts something for free or for sale. You think he link 2blog? You think this will build traffic? Yep. Because most people are to some extent addicted to CL, I have a regular traffic builder. Develop ten relationships and you should double your $1 per day. At this point you are paying your electric bill.

    To ramp it up fast post it in the services section s a free service. Of course I also have him in my opt in list and can market discreetly and rarely. What do I market? My service. I ask him to forward this link to his friends about what I do. In return I forward him some free e books r something. Believe me they do it. Then it goes exponential, mix up your offers to match the niche your client is selling for, and bang. Big viral traffic that will not get saturated. Enjoy it. The method requires work and patience but gets rolling like a snowball. YourCPA referrer is your blog and the leads are quality, while virally getting someone to post your link for free. Take care.

    Though your idea seems good in theory...I doubt it will work as easily. There's too much of a personal interaction (which takes time)...and the results vs time ..I doubt would be worthwhile to savvy marketers.
    You've given me stuff to think about though...

    I agree that there are some good ideas in here that I will consider but overall it does seem like a big time dump and not everyone is going to go for this offer. Have you already done this yourself? How many people actually recommended you and how many put up more than the original link?

    Thanks! Yeah this is definitely a long term project. Just out of curiosity, how much do you make from this method? Is your blog strictly ads or do you offer some content as well? What themes do you use for this?

    I was wondering this too. How do you create the sales page - with a WP classified plugin? I would be tempted to just install a classifieds script and let the seller post up their own details so you are essentially hosting their rpics and sales page.

    That was just an example, the car thing. You can use a WP plug in or for ease just keep updating a blogger post and link to the post. as far as long term effort, yes, but this is a solid method to build viral traffic that becomes automated and profitable. This method is currently paying my electric bill. But I spend zero for overhead. Not a get quick rich scheme, but it can build a solid foundation for traffic. If you post it as a service it will expand, and for that you can link directly to your blog and throw up a niche related CPA for quick convert.
