    First off, I'm a newbie here and finally feel that I can offer a word of advice to other newbie's. Take it or leave it.

    I've just recently made my third clickbank sale and I have to say things are coming together a little bit more now. I'm not a guru and far from it but here's my contribution to the forum.

    To All the newbie's here these are my keys to success.

    It seems like a lot of people here at BHW get mad when people are in the downloads section but at the same time sometimes you can't get the answers that you want when you ask questions.

    That's why I'm a regular there. When ever I want to learn about something then I check out the downloads. BIG THANKS to all who have contributed there. When you get something don't forget to hit the thanks button!
    So my advice to the newbie's is that if you ask a question and can't find what you want. check out the members downloads section. There is a TON of GREAT information there!!!

    I'm just making my third sale now and things are starting to come along more easier. For some they might call it luck. For others they might call it hard work. I call it working smarter. Either way it seems like the more I read, the luckier I get...

    The point is ...Continuous Education... Always!!! It is a MUST!

    Lastly I want to say something about SEO. SEO is like PORN for newbie webmasters. You get Fascinated by the concept of Getting to Page 1. I've done it on several occasions and have witnessed My blog to back and forth in the serps.

    Quick tip for newbie's: DON't Spend all your time concentrating on SEO!! You can make money with other methods! I have wasted so much time getting to the first page, when I could have been making sales! I sometimes seems like SEO is the equivalent of a college degree.

    Don't give up on SEO just do NOT put all your time into it like I have!
    If you are as strong in Article marketing, forum marketing and Video Marketing etc. you will set your self up to have a solid foundation in the future when you do learn SEO.

    In other words your chain is only as strong as your weakest link!

    If google Changes it's algo's then you will have several other weapons that you can still use to make Decent Cash!


    and like Another member here at BHW said, whenever I need to find something I use the Search button... or something like that.

    Anyways that's it for now, hopefully this helps someone.

    I agree with the SEO thing.

    I've spent a lot of time trying to push my site top top spot. I know I can make a lot of money if I get there but then I spent a couple of hours setting up a CPA lead streaming site and made a hell of a lot more for the time I spent working on it.

    Exactly my point. I want to try and make sales using all methods. THen when I have multiple streams of income, as Robert Allen would say, I can focus more time on SEO. I'll still experiment with it. But I will not spend nearly as much time as I did the last month or so.

    It seems like every time I think I know everything about it I learn something new anyways... G themselves says there's over 200 factors. I want to save my time and my sanity working on other things, while learning SEO in the process.

    I've made sales through forums and article marketing. Next I want to learn Video Marketing More.

    I would like to point out the nearly 74% of my 14,000 Unique Views a day consist of SEO traffic. The other percentage is Social Network traffic. It may be better to spend time with SEO on your website since you may end up spending a grand a month on Advertising networks. To me its worth the hassle to make the site fully SEO.

    Thanks for the response thxflash. I'm not saying to disregard it. But people want to make money NOW. It will take a while for someone to experiment, and then go through the trial and error, and in addition go through all of the misinformation that you will learn on the internet.
    So my advice is learn it by experimenting and research, but more times than not you are likely to get slapped many times by G before you figure out the "formula" that works for you..

    I agree and think it's worth the time to learn it but there are other avenues of income that you can prioritize first as far as income is concerned. And while us newbies are getting slapped up and down in serps we can not monetize.

    You just can't monetize when your not on page 1 or even worse not even in the top 50.

    Additionally you can waste tons of times waiting for the results only to get slapped again, even though what you thought was right ended up being wrong.

    Oh, Ok. Done. Wasn't quite clear about the whole "thanks" thing. Thought you should only do that when something was contributed somthing of value. Not just a reply. But, it's done in any case.

    9tail, great to hear that you have some sales from clickbank and l hope its the start of many more.

    I wont comment on what you said about spending time on seo as thats only around 10% of what to do with your websites anyway, what would be helpful next time you have some success is to actually tell the members how you did so that they can benefit as well.

    Thanks nicho.

    Well basically to elaborate it wasn't anything fancy or anyting like that. Just article marketing. I believe it was 7 articles about 300 or so words each. Send to my sales page on my blog.

    I will say this though I took to following into consideration:

    Volume - Search Traffic...No brainer

    Advertising Competition (Pay per click Cost) - How much they are paying per click for keywords(using free google tool). The more the better. If you copy and past the entire keywords section onto a word doc. it will give you the cost per click or bidding price.(if you don't have a adwords account)

    Site Competition - How many competing sites or likeliness for your article will make it to page one with out using any juice to articles vs. Traffic

    Keyword Relevance -- Are they buying or just looking for information. Check sites and make sure they are selling there already.

    Price Point - Are they able to afford the products you are selling? What type of buyer is typing in the keywords. For example people who are looking for Golf tips are likely to have money...

    People who are looking typing in "extra cash" are probably looking to make money but don't have the money to buy anything to begin with, hence the search term "extra cash"

    Note: this was just a quick copy and past from my notes.. Planing on making an ebook soon!!

    Also the more professional your site looks the better. I had a Home page, FAQ's page, Contact us page, Myths about "my niche" page, The truth about "my niche" page and a Recommended Reading page (sales page). Not just a one page wonder.. Additionally I'm using a free blogger blog and took out the navbar as well.

    At marcdk you're welcome. I'm just glad that I'm at a point where I can contribute somewhat here.

    I've been wanting to find out how to do that, but none of my net research has proved worthy...Would appreciate if you could share w/us how you were able to do that.

    Thanks-


    To your continued success....

    Just don't autoblog. Seriously. It's annoying and nobody likes to read it. Fun to make, not fun to find, easy to spot. good thread though. I like the continuous education part.

    I agree.. I'm actually thinking about going back to school for internet marketing or to learn coding but I don't know if learning it on my own would be better or easier than going into a class room.
